    31 Things That Basically Give You No Choice But To Have Better Skin

    Because sometimes we have to play tough with breakouts — but like in a super nice way to our skin.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Burt's Bees deep-cleansing cream packed with soothing agents like chamomile, aloe, and soap bark so you can clear up breakouts in the gentlest (yet most effective) way possible if you have super sensitive skin.

    amazon.com

    It even has a touch of menthol to help cool and soothe your irritated complexion so you're left feeling clearer and squeaky clean. Plus, this is 99% natural and specifically formulated to be non-irritating for daily use!

    Promising review: "I have been suffering from a mild case of perioral dermatitis for some time now and have tried all kinds of face washes, moisturizers etc. I am pregnant with my second child now and every morning I have been waking up with horrible red patches that burn if I put anything on them — even tinted moisturizer (because I can no longer use regular foundation). I finally came across this amazing face wash. After a week of using this face wash my face is completely clear! All the red patches are gone and my face looks so vibrant and fresh! I love how this face wash smells and tingles after I used it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.49.

    2. A Pixi T-zone peel-off mask that'll confront your oily forehead ~head-on~ with a powerful green superfood blend of avocado, cucumber, aloe vera, green tea, and bamboo extract to tighten pores, draw out oil, and show acne the door.

    instagram.com

    Plus it's cruelty-free!

    Get it from Target for $22.

    3. A bottle of Acure brightening facial scrub for exfoliating away excess oil (the pesky cause of most breakouts). It's gentle enough to use every day, meaning your acne doesn't have a chance to come back. We are on 👏top👏 of👏 it — all while bringing out a clear, glowing complexion from underneath.

    amazon.com

    Its vegan formula helps to stimulate new cell growth with a chlorella growth factor. And it's cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "This stuff is a lifesaver. Recently my doctor put me on steroids to clear up my allergies. I immediately started breaking out like I was 15 again (it was one of the side effects). I didn't have a good exfoliator and this one had such good reviews that i decided to try it out. It really works! In eight days my skin was almost back to normal and it felt clean as can be! My dark acne spots were significantly lighter and all the little bumps I had were gone. Will be buying this from here on out." —janelle

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    4. A Cosrx aloe sun cream, because this will give you the best of both worlds. It has SPF 50 to effectively protect you from UV rays (which can darken acne scars) while also hydrating your skin and reducing redness, thanks to its aloe formula.

    instagram.com

    Plus the lightweight feel can help prevent breakouts if you're a member of the Sensitive Skin Club.

    Promising review: "I'm so glad I found this product. It isn't greasy at all on my combination skin; it's light, and dare I say moisturizing. I've been using it every day for two months and have had no breakouts, and I have sensitive skin! The aloe reduces my facial redness. This protects well against sunburns without giving off that fake-coconut 'going to the beach' scent (I hate that scent). I use this daily in place of a standard moisturizer, and it works well and holds up all day." —Nenni

    Get it from Amazon for $12.47.

    5. A tub of the cult-fave Aztec Indian Healing Clay mask so you can wage a war on tough (even cystic) breakouts and actually win this time. No matter how deep your acne goes, this mask will clean out your pores like there's no tomorrow. Seriously, Hoover called and they're looking for their vacuum back.

    amazon.com

    I'm honestly not even sure how there are still people left on this Earth who have yet to buy this. By the way this works best with apple cider vinegar!

    Promising review: "Wow. Just wow. I had no expectations for this product since I've been dealing with cystic acne since I was a teenager (I'm 24 now), so I went into this purchase not expecting much. As many others have said, I previously tried absolutely everything on the market to cure my acne. I have very sensitive, reactive skin and have never seen any real improvement. After reading all the crazy reviews about this product, I figured I would give it a try, not expecting much. However, I have been blown away by the long-term results of using this mask. I mix it with apple cider vinegar and apply it several times a week when my skin is really bad, and it has never done anything negative to my skin – no irritation, no dryness, nothing. It always destroys every single pimple that emerges. It does bring underlying pimples to a head, and that can be a little disturbing at first, but it is so worth it for the end result. I was considering taking Accutane, a very strong and dangerous medicine to finally cure my acne for good, and this product has made me completely reconsider." —Heather E.

    Get them from Amazon: Aztec Healing Clay for $8.30 and apple cider vinegar for $8.25.

    6. A pack of Bioré cleansing pore strips that'll basically act as a magnet to efficiently draw out dirt, oil, and blackheads both from your nose and your forehead (or really anywhere requiring *assistance*). Deep clean does not even BEGIN to define these.

    amazon.com

    You'll get a combo-pack for both nose strips and facial strips!

    Promising review: "I have scrubbed the center of my forehead for months but the 'field of black dots' just remained no matter what. So finally I decided to give this a try. I followed instructions exactly (removed after 10 minutes) and after I peeled it off I looked and not a dot in sight — until I looked at the strip! That looked like a forest with all those 'dots' standing up on end. Highly recommend!" —David G.

    7. A jar of Étude House collagen sleeping pack to totally redefine "moisturizing." If repairing dry skin and waking up to a smoother, brighter complexion sounds good to you, then this is your new bed buddy. Strictly rated G, of course.

    Etude House

    Its super collagen and Baobab water formula is quickly absorbed into your skin overnight (and you don't need to worry about it rubbing into your pillow)! It also helps to seal in any of your other skin care products.

    Promising review: "This worked very well on my oily-combination skin. Most night creams I've tried make me break out and are just too oily for my skin, but this sleeping pack is very light and refreshing, yet it is extremely moisturizing! You get all of the moisture and none of the oil. My hyperpigmentation acne scars also seem to have lightened up a bit since I started using this." —sillhouette

    Get it from Amazon for $11.86.

    8. A subscription to Ritual vitamins, because not only will you load up on nutrients you're probably lacking (vitamin B-12, omega-3, and iron to name a few) , but these will also be responsible for a natural ~glow up~. Seriously, a BuzzFeeder noticed clearer, brighter skin her third week of taking these!

    instagram.com

    Oh and if literal glowing skin isn't enough for you, you should know that B-12 helps prevent hangovers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The other essential nutrients: folate, omega-3, vitamin D-3, iron, vitamin K2, boron, vitamin E, and magnesium. They'll do all the hard work — you just remember to take 'em once a day.

    Check out how a BuzzFeeder truly improved her complexion with these in her full review!

    Start your subscription to Ritual for $30/month.

    9. A TreeActiv cystic spot treatment so you don't have to wait the usual eternal time period for those suckers to fade away. Its main ingredient, bentonite clay, draws out toxins, fights swelling, and calms irritated skin — basically overnight. Is that a tear in your eye I see?

    amazon.com

    It also has pink grapefruit essential oil (to reduce inflammation, kill infections, and promote collagen production with vitamin C), witch hazel (to clear excess sebum and balance your skin's oil), peppermint and spearmint water (to kill bacteria within pores, balance oil production, and reduce scarring), tea tree water and essential oil (to moisturize, tone, and eliminate even the toughest breakouts), lemon essential oil (to balance overactive sebaceous glands, clear acne, and exfoliate dead skin cells), and aloe vera to promote vitamin E and C and help your skin recover). SO YEAH, IT DOES A LOT.

    Promising review: "Nothing has cured or even helped my cystic acne except for this product! It immediately started working the first night. I have spent hundreds of dollars with dermatologists on chemical scripts with no success. You must try this!" —Jo Lynn Courtney-Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    Check out more info and amazing before-and-afters!

    10. A FOREO LUNA Mini 2 that'll scrub away makeup, dead skin, and excess oil (oh my!) in just *60 seconds* aka before you have time to change your mind. One minute of deep-cleansing > breaking out from going to bed with makeup on.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    By the way, this pulsing miracle worker is made up of nonporous silicone and bendable touchpoints to deter bacteria buildup and thoroughly exfoliate without irritating your skin. It even lights up and buzzes so you know when to move it to the next part of your face! AND it's totally waterproof so feel free to take this bad boy in the shower (that came out wrong).

    Promising review: "I have very dry skin and when I exfoliate too vigorously my skin gets dry patches. I've been using this regularly for the past four months and I can honestly say, my skin has never looked better. I use both sides for a total of two minutes with a mild cleanser. I've only charged this device once and I'll moderate the intensity as needed. Overall, I love this device and am so happy that I bought it." —Charles and Jenn

    Get it from Amazon for $139 (available in six colors).

    This BuzzFeed editor (above!) is a trusty member of the Hella Sensitive Skin Club and she LOVES it! Check out her full review!

    11. Or! A set of soft silicone cleansing brushes for seriously making the most of your favorite face wash. These are covered with super soft bristles to say adieu to dirt, oil, and makeup and go to bed with a nice, fresh face. Residue? Never heard of it.

    amazon.com

    They're great for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I've seen these online and thought I'd give them a try. I'll never wash my face without these again! I have a pretty in-depth skin care routine and this these little wonders cover the missing piece. The silicone is super soft, and they're ergonomically designed and easy to hold. I'm actually using less face wash now. I highly recommend and for the price you can't beat it!" —G. Pathak

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    12. A jar of Andalou Naturals pumpkin honey glycolic mask, because this ~treat yourself~ moment will leave your skin brighter, smoother, and clearer, courtesy of vitamin C and exfoliating properties. All you have to do is sit back and turn on Netflix.

    amazon.com

    And it's cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I have used this mask three or four times and I feel like I genuinely notice a difference after every use. I have noticed a change in my skin texture, pores, oil production, and dark spots. My skin is softer and brighter. It says 10-20 minutes and I usually keep it on about 15. I haven’t noticed any burns or irritation afterwards, which I usually experience after glycolic products. The consistency is thick — it reminds me of mashed sweet potatoes lol. After using it about four times I still have a little more than half the jar. Overall I am genuinely impressed. I have also experimented with it as a spot treatment which I felt like I saw results for as well." —Danie

    Get it from Amazon for $10.77 (available in four formulas).

    13. A Yes to Coconut two-in-one scrub and cleanser stick with coconut and coffee extracts so your skin is energized, moisturized, and exfoliated all in just a few flicks of your wrist. Who knew your skin could use some *caffeine* too?

    instagram.com

    The coconut extract moisturizes while the coffee helps stimulate blood circulation, which reduces inflammation and tightens skin.

    Promising review: "I have really sensitive skin that tends to break out with certain products. I bought this to try on my body just to find out what the craze was with the sticks and ended up using it on my face as well. This product is amazing! My skin doesn’t break out from it and it actually cleans deeper into my pores than I expected and it even made my pores look smaller! I have combination skin as well, and my face doesn’t get oily-looking by the end of the day." —Debs

    Get it from Amazon for $4.85+ (available in two styles).

    14. A bottle of Bye Bye Blemish drying lotion that'll not only zap that zit away the minute you *spot* it, but also help you avoid any treacherous picking. Scars who?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After I stopped nursing my daughter, I started breaking out and it was just getting worse as the months went on. I noticed that I was not only getting annoying red spots and whiteheads, but I was also getting cystic, painful acne in other places too. I stumbled across this with great reviews, and it was the best decision! I have engagement photos tomorrow and I can say for the first time in about two years I am completely breakout free! This product is so easy to use and is great for overnight use — by the time I wake up in the morning the product has disappeared on my face along with my acne. The first night I used it my breakouts were either completely gone or half the size! Now a week later I have woken up with no breakouts and I am ecstatic!" —Megan S.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.05.

    15. A pack of Boscia blotting linens for having an on-the-go secret weapon against breakouts. Not only do these absorb excess oil and perspiration, but also actually treat acne with complexion-clearing bamboo and willow bark extract. AND you can do all this with makeup on. Bless.

    sephora.com

    FYI, willow bark extract is a natural salicylic acid. These also help cleanse pores, prevent future breakouts, and balance your complexion.

    Promising review: "I have used the green tea version for years after realizing they are basically the same price as drugstore's blotting papers. These have made a big difference in preventing breakouts. I use two to three sheets after lunch to remove all the oil without disturbing my makeup and I stay shine-free for the rest of the day. If you have acne-prone skin, this product needs to become a part of your regimen." —les2887

    Get a 100-pack from Sephora for $10.

    16. A sleeve of Cosrx pimple patches, because these will cancel acne faster than you can say pop. These drain zits overnight so you can avoid scarring, picking, and any of the other lovely benefits of a usually longer-lasting breakout.

    amazon.com

    Seriously, these hydrocolloid helpers summon bacteria and debris from deep under those zits so by the time you remove it, le zit is le gone.

    Promising review: "This is absolutely amazing! They come in three different sizes so you can conquer any zit, no matter how large or small. They are close to clear, so they blend in well with my skin. I'll put one on a painful, irritated, head-less pimple in the morning, go about my day (no one has called me out for wearing them, which means either they haven't noticed or they're afraid to say anything), and by the evening all the yuck has been sucked out onto the patch. It's disgusting, but SO COOL! When I take the patch off, it looks like the pimple was photoshopped right off my face. ZAP! Leaving the patch on all day also keeps me from picking, which prevents nasty scars and making the zit worse." —Lindsay & Eddie

    Get a 24-pack from Amazon for $4.97.

    17. A bottle of Juelp restorative facial milk with a five-oil blend so you can basically greet all your concerns at once. Think of it as a team huddle, except you're telling dryness and breakouts to get the hell out of here.

    instagram.com

    Did I mention everything is absorbed in *ten seconds*? Its ingredients are soothing milk, olive oil ( to keep skin soft and supple), jojoba oil ( to heal skin and lock in hydration), argan oil ( to repair and replenish skin with essential fatty acids), coconut oil ( to calm skin with natural anti-inflammatory properties), and squalane (to absorb rapidly and help the entire oil blend go deeper).

    Promising review: "I have combo skin: dry and oily. This stuff worked wonders! My dry skin that has been struggling with for weeks went away in just a few days. Plus no extra breakouts. I'd tried several different lotions which would kind of help but leave me with little breakouts and make my skin more oily. And this did none of that. I love this product!" —Hannah

    Get it from Ulta for $38.

    18. A bottle of TruSkin vitamin C serum that'll thoroughly nourish irritated complexions with a powerful blend of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. It'll reduce pores and breakouts, target discoloration, and make your overall complexion ~brighter~. Basically this serum is already more productive than I'll ever be.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product saved my skin. I seldom write reviews, but just had to review this product. I’ve been struggling with acne for YEARS. I have very acne-prone skin. I get a new pimple almost every day and it seemed like there was never a time I didn’t have a pimple on my face. I’ve tried all different types of moisturizers and cleansers. Nothing worked. However I bought this serum on a whim. Omg. Guys. Literally my face stopped flaring within three days. I was PIMPLE-FREE FOR MORE THAN 48 hours (a new record). My blemishes have faded DRASTICALLY and I have no more active breakouts. This hasn’t happened in years. I truly and honestly think it is due to this product." —Brandon

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes).

    19. A tub of Skinfood black sugar mask for exfoliating away dead skin with mineral-rich Brazilian black sugar granules and restoring moisture back to your complexion. But the best part? It makes blackheads disappear.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really love this product. I was a little leary at first, but this stuff is fantastic. It exfoliates nicely and the other ingredients leave my skin healthy and glowing. I would strongly recommend this product; it's a treat for your skin. Every time I use this I see a nice difference in my skin tone and clarity afterwards. My jar has lasted almost a year, and when I run out I will definitely buy more." —KCTwinsMom

    Get it from Amazon for $8.36.

    20. A powerful all-natural charcoal and tea tree soap bar, because this will tackle bacne, chest acne, butt acne (it happens!), and literally every other area that needs some TLC in just a scrub. Today is the day you wash all your skin concerns down the drain.

    amazon.com

    The vegan formula includes: green tea, organic olive oil, virgin coconut oil, raw shea butter, tea tree essential oil, and bamboo activated charcoal. All (plus obviously the activated charcoal and tea tree oil) do their part to draw out acne, deep-cleanse, and restore your natural pH balance.

    Promising review: "I am shocked by how well this product works.

    My family was relocated to a duty station in another state. Since moving here, I’ve started having horrible adult back acne, neck acne, and hairline acne.

    I ordered this on a whim. I was so surprised to see a night and day difference within two uses. My back acne went from all over my back to like three small blemishes. Neck acne, gone. Hairline acne, gone. I use it sparingly on my face, and it even controls cystic-type acne that pops up randomly." —Lola Reads

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    21. A bottle of Thayers witch hazel toner so you can finally end your life-long dispute with redness, acne, and excess oil with this soothing formula of aloe vera, rose-petal water, and vitamin E. It can help reduce oil buildup and bacteria (as well as tighten pores), thanks to its gentle exfoliation.

    amazon.com

    It *also* contains natural antibacterial and antimicrobial agents, aloe vera, citric acid, and grapefruit seed extract!

    Promising review: "This stuff is freaking amazing! I had a lot of redness and breakouts on my chin, as well as a few on my forehead. It truly just cleared them all up. I don't have any breakouts as of now, just my scars that I will be working on. I used this every night after cleansing my skin and it was perfection! I love this product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.29.

    22. A bottle of It Cosmetics full-coverage concealer that'll do more than just *cover up* your breakout. It conceals acne, redness, and discoloration all day (without creasing) and actually treats your pimples with oil-absorbing zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, tea tree, and sulfur. Multitasking never sounded so appealing.

    instagram.com

    Don't worry — oily skin is n o p r o b l e m for this miracle worker. It actually helps absorb excess oil.

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this product! I bought it crossing my fingers it would work and definitely it does. I apply a small amount over my pimples and in no more than two days pimples are gone. No ugly marks and no bump. The finish is really nice, kind of powdery instead of creamy." —yoly619

    Get it from Sephora for $28 (available in seven shades).

    23. A tube of Mederma scar cream for ensuring you don't have to deal with the ghosts of acne past. A little dab of this per night and soon enough your last breakout will truly be *out of sight and out of mind*.

    amazon.com

    It even has SPF 30 to protect your scars from deepening in the sun!

    Promising review: "About a year ago, I had a cystic acne explosion — 150+ lesions appeared on my skin in a very short time frame. After months of clearing up the cystic acne, blackheads, and whiteheads, my skin was left with hyper-pigmentation marks (red, purple, brown) and an uneven texture. I have used a number of prescribed topicals, retinoids, and medical grade skin lighteners. My dermatology specialist (who has dealt with acne herself) recommended this product because it was affordable yet effective. I was highly skeptical that it would work, but wow was I wrong! It does take a few weeks to start noticing a difference. But I truly have noticed a big difference in my overall skin tone (marks are fading) and the texture is starting to even out as well." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.74.

    24. A bottle of The Body Shop tea tree mattifying lotion, because shiny T-zones don't stand a chance when up against this bad boy. It's super absorbant (while also moisturizing) to leave your face matte, shine-free, and ready for the day.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Plus it's vegan, non-greasy (SO important for oily skin), and won't clog pores! Tl;dr: this is a shiny-skin holy grail.

    Promising review: "I'm not shiny after five hours of hiking in New Hampshire (very humid there)! This stuff is AMAZING! My face was always very shiny, even when I used a different mattifying moisturizer. I live in an area where the humidity is very high and my face never gets shiny with this stuff. Highly recommend!!" —Jen

    Get it from Amazon for $13.81.

    25. A phone screen disinfectant cleaner spray so gross germs and bacteria don't make their way to your precious face. Ever break out after talking on the phone? Don't let that happen again!

    amazon.com

    This spray and microfiber cloth duo is alcohol-free (so safe for sensitive skin) and odorless.

    Promising review: "I struggled for nearly a year with skin oil on my iPad Air 2 screen that I was unable to remove completely, despite my best efforts. It was frustrating because this had not been a problem with my iPad 2. Recently I found a blog in which this product was mentioned as a potential solution to my problem, and the blog stated that Apple had recommended this product. It removed the months-old, stubborn skin oil, and per its claim, also resisted subsequent skin oil, making it much easier to remove new fingerprints, etc." —Maryland Consumer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    26. A bottle of Origins frothy face wash that'll come to the rescue for those of us with combo skin. It carefully treats both oily and dry places: broad leaf kelp extract tackles excess oil production, while wheat protein balances and cares for dry zones.

    instagram.com

    It also contains aromatic bergamot, spearmint, and lavender to make the whole experience pleasurable AF.

    Promising review: "I'm not fussy about face wash — I usually grab whatever is on sale and have pretty much the same results with every product. I was ordering some other things from Ulta and decided to try this one in order to get to free shipping (what can I say, I love a deal). Y'all, I can't believe the immediate difference I saw with Origins! The tone of my skin was much more even, and it had a perfect matte finish. Just a little bit is all you need to work into a pleasant, frothy lather. It smells great, too. " —Kate

    Get it from Ulta for $23.50.

    27. A tub of CeraVe moisturizing cream for flaking on super dry skin with literally just this product. It's so thick yet effective that it's earned the National Eczema Seal of Acceptance, so even if you skip the rest of your routine you're good to go.

    amazon.com

    Seriously, I did Accutane for six months (an acne medicine that closes your oil glands and makes your skin d r y) and was what I can only describe as a flake monster — this was the only thing that fully moisturized my face! All in one step!

    Promising review: "I developed a dry, patchy area on the side of my mouth, but figured it was dry skin due to winter. After a week it spread to my chin and other side of my mouth. I thought it would go away on its own but then three weeks passed. I tried moisturizers and coconut oil but nothing worked! I was frustrated and embarrassed by this patchy, scaley skin on my face! As a last ditch effort I tried Cerave and it worked! It was much better after two days! Its now a month later and its still gone!" —Kathleen

    Get it from Amazon for $12.68.

    28. A bottle of Bio-Oil, because it's essentially a one-step solution to gently exfoliating your way to an even skin tone. Acne scars? Stretch marks? I don't know them.

    amazon.com

    it's even hypoallergenic, so sensitive skin can also use this! It's also great for uneven skin tones, fine lines, and dehydrated skin. Its formula is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base that'll both moisturize and heal unwanted marks over time. Plus it's non-greasy so it won't clog your pores.

    Promising review: "I put this on at least one to two times daily since I received this two weeks ago. I use it on my belly where I have stretch marks from my pregnancy and I also use it on my face. It helps moisturize my dry skin. I can tell my skin is clearing up AND I use the oil on my underarms after I get out of the shower to try and lighten them up. It's helping my discoloration on both my face (from my acne) and underarms and I feel like my stretch marks look different, as well. I'm very impressed with this product." —Valerie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three sizes).

    29. A bottle of Garnier miscellar cleansing water that'll act as both a makeup remover and facial cleanser for your entire face (including lips and eyelashes). Basically you have no excuse to ever go to bed without a fresh face again.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My new holy grail facial cleanser. I've been loyal to Philosophy Purity for years but wanted something for a quick refresher in the mornings. This stuff is fabulous — so fabulous that I've been using it in the evenings and mornings, and have all but retired my expensive brands. It is so simple and fast to use. I love that I don't have to pull my hair back and inevitably get my hair wet when I wash my face. Anyway, I use this with a facecloth and to help do some light exfoliating. It dries quickly and once it does my skin is silky smooth and clean. Best of all, my pores are literally gone and so tiny that I rarely even wear foundation any more." —Mrs. Warren

    Get it from Amazon for $6.64.

    amazon.com, instagram.com

    Promising review: "I showered with very hot water in the beginning to loosen up dirt and skin. Seriously, I had huge rolls coming off me!!! My tub floor was covered in excess dead skin! I always exfoliated before and thought I was very clean but this little scrub made me realize otherwise." —shelly nelly

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    I personally find this to be a miracle worker. Check out my full review!

    31. A jar of Burt's Bees facial moisturizer with cotton extract, because even the most sensitive of skin will be pleased by this gentle formula. No breakouts. No redness. Just a happy, hydrated complexion.

    amazon.com

    It's even fragrance-free and formulated with rice extract and aloe to soothe bothered skin. And they're cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I love the 'sensitive' skin line of Burt’s Bees. Ever since starting using these products two months ago, I have seen such a huge difference in my skin. My skin does not break out anymore and my skin is hydrated. I used to really struggle with breakouts on my chin and dry, peeling skin on my nose. Since I started using this, my skin has drastically changed. I no longer deal with acne and my skin is hydrated." —Leah
