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!

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
