OXY Maximum Acne Treatment Products Review

Prom will be here before you know it, so if you guys have a bad case of acne, then start treating it now so you can look your best on prom night. OXY is the number one pharmacist recommended brand of acne-treating products, so Kidzworld puts the OXY Maximum Acne Treatment line to the test - they're designed just for guys to help keep your skin clear, smooth and blemish-free!

Daily Wash

The OXY Maximum Daily Wash with 10% benzoyl peroxide is designed to clean deep into your pores and release active oxygen to treat and prevent breakouts. While it doesn't work up much of a lather, it does remove oil, dirt and other impurities that can clog up your pores and cause those nasty zits. Don't use it more than twice a day (morning and evening), as over-washing your face can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it looking and feeling dry and dull.

Face Scrub

Exfoliating is a great way to slough away dead skin cells, but you won't get much scrubbing action from this product. The OXY Maximum Face Scrub is more suds than scrub, as the little beads don't work hard enough to leave you looking smooth and fresh-faced. But with 2% salicylic acid, it works great as a foaming cleanser to keep your blemishes at bay.

Cleansing Pads

Although the OXY Maximum Cleansing Pads work best when used with the Daily Wash, they're a great quick fix when you're in a rush - or feelin' too lazy to go to the bathroom and wash your face. Swipe one of these salicylic-infused goodies across your face to remove dirt and oil, and unclog pores to prevent further breakouts. Be careful not to rub your face too hard, as it'll leave you with a stinging sensation. There are 90 pads to a container, so they'll last you for quite a long time.

Spot Treatment

If you're in need of a zit-blaster, try the OXY Maximum Spot Treatment with 10% benzoyl peroxide. Although it's clinically proven to kill acne bacteria in 24 hours, it actually took a few days for our zits to be zapped when we tested it out. You only need to apply a thin layer of the Spot Treatment to affected areas of your face once or twice a day, or else your skin will be left dry and peeling - ouch! It comes in clear, light and dark tints to accommodate all skin tones, but clear is ideal for guys - it goes on white, but dries clear. It has a slightly unpleasant smell, but what else would you expect from an acne medication?

Body Wash

Now here's a multi-action product in one - the OXY Maximum Body Wash not only cleans your skin, but also fights dreaded "backne" and other problem areas on your body with the added ingredient of 2% salicylic acid. It'll leave your skin feeling smooth and invigorated! Plus, the refreshing scent of Extreme Alpine smells great, so you can probably skip the cologne once you're out of the shower.

Bar Soap

If you're a regular soap-and-water kind of guy, then check out the OXY Bar Soap, which also comes in the Extreme Alpine scent. With 0.5% salicylic acid, it claims to remain on the skin and fight acne 300% longer than other leading brands. In our opinion, a bar of soap is just a bar of soap, but it's comforting to know that this product is fighting our acne long after the soap has been washed away!

    I feel like that too! I know where you're coming from, but believe me, I've moved on. Those people? Bleh. Not worth my time, and certainly don't deserve me.  You described me exactly: good with people and friends, but don't have a best friend at all, and others really don't care whether I'm lonely or sad. Well, it might sound crazy, but guess what? I've found a friend in me instead of others. I've learned to accept that you can't please everyone, and that some of the fish in the sea aren't worth wasting your time on. So I've become independent, to learn to depend on myself more than to rely on others. Trust me, it works, and I think it'll work for you. But if you really need a friend, me and @alienincognito are here to talk to you if you need us! @alienincognito: LOL! DUDE! That's HOW I THINK! Whenever one of my friends talks behind my back or backstabs me, I'm like, "Ah, whatever, 'screw em, I'll let Karma take over! I ain't letting those negative peeps ruin my day." Maybe you, me, and hasti10 could start a group where we can talk to each other!  :) :D 8)

    I've always felt the same way. My one best friend gossiped behind my back, used me, all that girl stuff. She took me for advantage and we had a bunch of fights because of her finding a new friend and completely acting as if I didn't exist, and I told her to give me at least some attention every once in a while if she can't even continue to talk to me daily. And.. I lost her. Well, she lost me. We both lost each other. But then I realized.. it's the people that you least expect to be nice to you you'll find kindness in. Why? Based on personal experience, and I'll tell you the story: For my gym class, me and my peers were supposed to make a group for a dance. This was when my best friend had found a new friend already, and the time at which we had a few fights because of that. Of course, I relied on my best friend to count me in her dance group. At lunchtime, I sat together with my best friend, and we ate our lunches in silence. All of a sudden, I brought up the dance groups and asked her straightforwardly: "Can I join your group?" No reply. "Kelly, can I join your group?" No reply. "I mean, since our class is uneven, I found it fair that there'd be a group of five, you know?" None at all. Kelly ignored me straight off the bat, leaving me speechless. My mind raced with thoughts, and I thought, maybe it's not worth having Kelly as a friend. A few days later, we were playing Dodgeball for gym. I was on Kelly's team, and overheard her talking with her new friends about who to pick for the dance group. One of her friends mentioned me, and Kelly said: "Oh no, we shouldn't pick her because _____ (I don't know what she said then)." I was shocked, but was anticipating it, so when the time came to choose groups, I saw my friend, Luke, ask two girls, Cher and Bridgette, to join their group. Surprisingly, Cher and Bridgette actually accepted him, and so I thought, "Wow, if they accepted Luke, they might accept me aswell!" and so built up the courage to ask them if I could join. Even though Cher and Bridgette were mean to me sometimes, I knew that I had to risk it and see what'd happen. Afterall, rejection is just another opportunity to find a better group. Little did I know, it'd be the best choice of my life. They were so happy, and even thanked me for joining them! I was speechless once more; I never knew that the peers that I thought I would never be friends with would actually be my friends!  So yeah, that's what I learnt, and I never regretted learning that fact. Ever since then, though, I've learnt not to trust people as much as I used to anymore. I learnt that independency is what works for me, what I was meant for in terms of socializing or working. But, other things may work for you. If you still want a friend, you can be independent and wait for the right person. However, if you still want a real friend, you can wait, but still mingle (hang out) with other people! I I'm not going to make fun of you because I know how you've felt, just as I stated in my past problem before. But you can move on from those friends, they're not worth your time and certainly don't deserve you as a friend. Trust me, if it's meant to be, you'll definitely find a true friend. But if it's not, you may become like me, finding happiness in my own way. I want to remind you though-- you don't need someone to stay happy, or keep you company. This may sound silly, but you can even have your own invisible friends! I've had one, but that's very rarely for me. It's not silly though if you see the general idea; usually these friends are made from different dimensions of your personality or just because of will. There's a lot more fish in the sea, though, so I'm sure you'll find a true friend that's meant for you  :) Take care, and I hope you'll find a true friend soon!

    i know the feeling. but i got taken off a website instead of my friends. i can assure you they probably feel the same and are missing you, BUT its not worth dwelling over it. friends come and go without any choice in life and trust me, i lost the love of my life and my two of the best friends in the world. The thing is, you have to move on, because they wouldent want you feeling sad over them right? they'd want you to be the happy person you were when you were with them! for starters, i'll be your friend so your not scared to make some new ones. To be honest, i went through the exact same thing as you did and it DOES hurt very bad. But once you find some people that are willing to make you feel better, you know you've chosen the right friends again
