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!

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

    I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

    I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
