    23 Holy Grail Acne Products That'll Help Banish Your Zits Once And For All

    Byeeeee, pimples! See you never!

    1. A bottle of rose-infused witch hazel toner that'll help cleanse your skin without totally drying it out. Reviewers say it's helped with acne and blackheads, and that it's great for sensitive skin, so this may be your new holy grail skincare product.

    2. A pack of revolutionary acne patches with over 1,000 positive reviews that'll magically make your zits disappear overnight. Reviewers swear by them and say they work best if you poke your pimple lightly before applying.

    3. A pack of Yes to Tomatoes Blemish Clearing Facial Wipes that are easier to handle and travel with than a liquid toner, making them a godsend for vacations. One BuzzFeed writer uses them after he finishes washing his face every night and said he's seen waaay fewer breakouts since adding them to his routine.

    4. A jar of Peter Thomas Roth acne treatment pads that will exfoliate your skin and stimulate cell turnover in one fell swoop. They're safe for sensitive skin and are packed with green tea extract, which protects the skin from free radical damage.

    5. A jar of cult-favourite bentonite clay mask that will suck every last bit of gunk out of your pores in under 20 minutes (and make you look like a swamp monster). You can also use it as a spot treatment, if you don't want to cover your whole face.

    6. A set of best-selling silicone face-cleansing pads that will gently brush away dirt, grime, and other impurities. Reviewers love how gentle they are and say they can even be used to clean makeup brushes.

    7. Or, if you're feeling fancy, a Foreo Luna Mini 2 that'll scrub your entire face clean with T-Sonic pulses. It's gentle enough for sensitive skin and will get rid of makeup residue, dead skin cells, and just about anything else.

    8. A tube of cleansing face wash that's packed with superfruits and sea kelp to keep your skin clear without drying it out. It's formulated to fight off acne, blackheads, and blemishes, but can also do wonders for fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness.

    9. This legendary blood red peeling solution from The Ordinary that you've probably seen on TikTok, Instagram, and every other social media platform. It'll clean out your congested pores, deeply exfoliate your skin, and make your skin super smooth (AKA everything you want and need).

    10. A tube of charcoal-infused pore peeling scrub that magically removes blackheads in mere seconds. One BuzzFeed writer says that watching it exfoliate away dead skin and impurities in gross little balls is a disgusting (yet majorly satisfying) experience.

    11. A bottle of alcohol-free and fragrance-free Mario Badescu Aloe Vera Toner that's made specifically for sensitive skin and will remove any gunk that's still hanging around after you cleanse.

    12. Speaking of aloe, this soothing moisture gel is packed with it and will help chill out that annoying redness that comes with any bad breakout. Reviewers say it chills out irritated pimples and helps reduce scarring, as well.

    13. An exfoliating back loofah that will probably be your new BFF if you're struggling with bacne or bumps on your booty. Reviewers love how it helps them get at hard-to-reach places and say thatit gives a great scrub without being too scratchy.

    14. A pack of Cetaphil cleansing cloths that are super gentle and won't leave any pore-clogging residue behind. One BuzzFeed writer loves how effectively they remove makeup and serve double duty as quick shower/armpit refreshers in a pinch.

    15. A tube of Alba Botanica Oil Control Lotion that uses salicylic acid and willow bark solution to get rid of zits and prevent future breakouts. If your moisturizer is making you more oily than you wanna be, consider swapping it out for this bad boy.

    16. This Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask that fizzes up to gently massage any build-up out of your pores. One BuzzFeed writer says you can actually feel the oil leaving your pores, which I'm pretty sure is something that all acne-afflicted people want to experience.

    17. Some bougie Kate Somerville drying lotion that costs a pretty penny, but is worth every dang cent. I’ve tried this stuff and it is no joke. I saw dramatic differences overnight and in a few days, my face was feelin’ fine, fresh, and pimple free.

    18. Or, if you're not feeling as spendy, a bottle of spot treatment that's a total dupe with over 5,000 positive reviews. Reviewers say it works wonders on cystic acne and tough spots.

    19. A bottle of Canadian-made face wash with jojoba and argan oil that'll smooth and hydrate your skin without breaking you out. Reviewers say it even leaves beards feeling squeaky clean and moisturized.

    20. A SkinFood mask that is the gentle exfoliator every person with sensitive skin needs. One BuzzFeed writer says it leaves her skin feeling clean, smooth, and moisturized, and removes grossness from her pores, too. Hello strawberries, buh-bye blackheads.

    21. A bottle of tea tree oil that's an all-natural zit zapper and smells super refreshing, too. You can apply it like a spot treatment, or mix it with hot water and do a facial steam for a spa-like experience.

    22. A Peter Thomas Roth Mask that'll absorb up all the excess oil on your face and is packed with eucalyptus to prevent future pimple problems. One BuzzFeed writer says that though she still gets a breakout now and then, this mask has made her zits a lot less angry and her breakouts a lot more manageable.

    23. And finally, a tube of oil control face moisturizer that'll keep breakouts at bay with the help of organic oils and amino acids. Reviewers say it'll save you from constantly having to blot your face and sits well under makeup.
