    31 Things That'll Help Get Rid Of Pimples As Fast As Possible

    Fast-acting serums, spot treatments, and masks that work a lot better than people telling us to "just drink more water." 😑

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A bottle of Radha rosehip oil, because this'll require merely a few drops to tackle redness, scarring, pimples, and everything in-between. Reviewers use this before bed and wake up to ✨glowing✨, healing skin! Nothing will get in your way of clear skin again...not on this bb's watch.

    Reviewer's before-and-after with scarred, broken out cheek and then almost fully clear cheek with Amazon five-star caption that says "just WOW"

    Promising review: "This stuff is life-changing! I have incredibly oily skin that is acne-prone. Although it seems counterintuitive to put oil on my oily skin, it does wonders for keeping my skin clear and refreshed and gives it a healthy glow! I apply two to three drops each night after washing my face and sometimes use it as my moisturizer during the daytime as well." —RC

    2. A skin-clarifying cleanser that'll address multiple goals at once while you lather — its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties treat breakouts, while antioxidants renew and heal irritated complexions. People with oily skin, this is especially great for you!

    By the way, Bolden is a great Black women-owned company whose mission is to create responsibly-sourced beauty products that help people embrace their natural beauty, and to design skincare that inspires more inclusive standards of beauty.

    Promising review: "I’ve been using Bolden products for about two months. My face looks amazing, I’ve haven’t see my face this clear in a while and I love it. My partner even noticed how clear my face is! Must-buy." —Chemise M.

    Get it from Bolden for $16.50.

    3. A retinol serum (a fancy name for vitamin A) so you can balance your complexion, stimulate collagen, and fade hyper-pigmentation. If you've ever so much as sat in a dermatologist's chair you've probably heard of this ingredient, because it's so 👏 darn 👏 effective 👏 (and fast!).

    Reviewer's before-and-after with breakouts on cheeks and chin and then fully clear complexion

    This particular retinol serum is combined with 10% hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, witch hazel, jojoba oil, and green tea to not only exfoliate but *nourish* your complexion. Meaning your skin will be balanced and hydrated, instead of over-exfoliated.

    Promising review: "My skin is so sensitive! I am 35 and have struggled with acne since I was a teen. I have been prescribed so many medications from the dermatologist. I had been using tretinoin, but it really dried my skin out. It was hard to wear makeup, because it would flake off. I decided to give this serum line a try and have been so impressed by the results. I have been using this for two months and my skin is beautiful. I get an occasional breakout, but it goes away quickly. My skin is so soft — no dryness at all! My blackheads have cleared up, too! I have had no adverse reactions and like I said, my skin is so sensitive. Give it a try!!!" —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    4. A set of Rael acne patches for healing breakouts before you have time to give up — all you need to do is slap it on before bed. They're gentler than acne cream, speed up recovery to practically overnight, and do all the ~heavy lifting~ for you.

    Promising review: "I was really skeptical about this product because it seemed like a gimmick of sorts. But I definitely saw, and felt, results after a few hours. I’m not really sure how this sticky dot works but I only put two on for my worst pimples to test it out and it really drew everything out. I’ll definitely need more for when my monthly breakouts come. Will rebuy and recommend." —Lex

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $6.99.

    5. Or! A pack of Avarelle extra large acne cover patches to help you easily tackle multiple pimples at once. They're powered by tea tree oil and calendula oil (all of which are gentle on sensitive skin) to reduce inflammation and absorb pus ASAP.

    Reviewer holding the extra-large patch with pus on it

    Promising review: "I had fallen in love with the round individual acne patches, but as someone with moderate acne it would take me awhile to put a bunch of the individual ones on before bed. Enter these patches: Slap a couple of these on and you're good to go. Wake up with clearer skin. Also these don't over dry my skin like a lot of other acne products. 10/10. Now they need to come out with a full face version." —Abby Skinner

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $8.50.

    6. A bottle of The Ordinary peeling solution that'll decrease excess oil (a probable cause of recurring breakouts) with a surprisingly affordable combo of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid that need only ~10 minutes~ to treat acne, smooth your skin tone, and exfoliate oily skin layers.

    The bottle of peeling solution

    This is strong, so it's not recommended for sensitive skin.

    Promising review: "I have red bumps on my face that would not go away. I went to the dermatologist, tried high-end products, and nothing worked. I did this once and the bumps are already almost gone and my complexion is so much better. I’m amazed by this product" —tbailey1

    Get it from Sephora for $7.20.

    7. A La Roche-Posay gel face wash to help you STRONGLY encourage breakouts and excess oil to ~clear out~ quickly with the help of salicylic acid. In fact, they won't really have a choice. All that will be left is your newly-found ~afterglow~.

    Reviewer's before-and-after of dry, broken-out chin and then smoother, clear chin

    Plus it's gentle enough to use twice a day! It specifically works to target and control oil, and then treat blackheads and breakouts so your skin is left clear, clear, and clear.

    Promising review: "I couldn’t wait to receive this. First night I used it my blemishes were the second night of using this product, they were almost gone! It's fast-acting and very soft on the skin. It leaves me feeling refreshed and clean. I also apply a little moisturizer after." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    8. A bar of African black soap so you can fight breakouts ALLLL over (hello, surprise butt pimple) before you have time work yourself into a lather. Its combo of shea butter, vitamin E, and coconut oil work together to quickly wash those unwelcome zits down the drain.

    Promising review: "I started taking medication that breaks my skin out pretty badly. I have tried medicated acne products to eradicate this unwanted side effect to my oral medicines. At first they seemed to work; but I had to stick with them for several days in order to see results. The very first time I used this brand of black soap, I could immediately see and feel how clean my skin got. I was consistent with washing my face with this soap every day for the first two weeks but slacked off for the past two weeks; however, my skin is mostly clear of pimples. The dark spots are also lightening. My overall complexion has improved noticeably and I am grateful." —Marge

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    9. An Alba Botanica deep-clean astringent for combining the power of 2% salicylic acid, witch hazel, and willow bark solution to effectively treat those annoying active breakouts quickly and easily. Any last words, pimples? Too late.

    Promising review: "This stuff is an absolute life-saver. I have extremely sensitive skin and this stuff gets rid of spots without breaking me out further. It also feels really good on the skin. It's a little tingly, but in a good way. I don't go anywhere without this stuff, it is the best!!" —Piper Foulon

    Get it from Amazon for $6.25.

    10. A TreeActiv cystic acne spot treatment, because this'll shave the time it takes for cystic pimples to fade in half. Its main ingredient, bentonite clay, draws out toxins, fights swelling, and calms irritated skin très vite so the days of waiting an eternity are over.

    Reviewer's photos of clearing their cystic acne in four stages

    It also has pink grapefruit essential oil (to reduce inflammation, kill infections, and promote collagen production), witch hazel (to clear excess sebum and balance oil production), peppermint and spearmint water (to kill bacteria and reduce scarring), tea tree water and essential oil (to moisturize and tone), and aloe vera (to promote vitamin E and C and help your skin recover). SO YEAH, IT DOES A LOT.

    Promising review: "I have tried everything (short of Accutane) to get rid of my persistent cystic acne, and nothing has been effective. I applied a small amount of this miracle-in-a-jar to the blemishes on my face, chest, and back. In the morning, the blemishes were noticeably reduces in size and redness. My skin has never looked better. If you have cystic acne, give this a try. You won't be disappointed." —Erika B.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

    11. A Mario Badescu glycolic acid toner that'll help remove dead skin, which in turn will bring even cystic acne to the surface *and* heal scars by combining a duo of powerful exfoliating ingredients: glycolic acid and papaya extract. And! It'll soothe inflamed skin with aloe vera.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "This is a life-changer. Before this, I had large pores, blackheads everywhere, even cystic pimples that really hurt. After two weeks of using this product, my skin is glowing with little to no acne!!! It isn't a very intense toner, just use this with moisturized skin. It feels like nothing to me. It's an absolute must-have for anyone with combo skin. I NEVER buy luxury beauty products because I think it's just a lot of money and maintenance, but this is the only product I think I will consistently buy from now on. Don't be scared by the price, it's worth it." —Kevins Small Engine

    Get it from Amazon for $13.50+ (available in two sizes).

    To learn why this won our budget pick for best toners (that we tried and tested), check out "The Best Face Toners Will Leave Your Skin Hydrated And Happy."

    12. A bottle of tea tree oil so you can slap on a fast-acting natural spot treatment that drastically reduces redness and swelling overnight while you catch up on your beauty sleep. The best part: it'll begin to heal painful swelling before you have time to pick and make it worse. Hands DOWN, my friend.

    Reviewer's before-and-after of mild acne and then clear skin

    Promising review: "I love this product! I mixed it with coconut oil for my son's cystic acne before bed and we were amazed at the results the next morning. Redness and swelling was cut in half. We have tried every OTC product out there and I will definitely keep using this. This is working wonders after two uses." —Sue

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    13. An African black soap face wash for reaping all the benefits of the popular soap bar formula, but streamlining it to an easy-to-use pump. Not only will this be faster to use if you just want it for your face, but its shea butter will *also* leave your skin smoother. Clearer, softer skin with less effort? Yes. Please.

    The face wash
    Bomb'd Aesthetics

    In case you don't know, Bomb'd Aesthetics is a fantastic Black woman-owned brand that makes handcrafted, all-natural beauty products. Everything is vegan, cruelty-free, and made with sensitive skin in mind.

    Promising review: "It is very hard to find something that 'works' on my skin. I have eczema as well as oily areas on my face. This wash is gentle enough for eczema while also keeping me free of breakouts." —Denesha

    Get it from Bomb'd Aesthetics for $15.99.

    14. A vitamin C serum, because this'll nourish your skin with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E to reduce pores and breakouts, target discoloration, and make your overall complexion ~brighter~. And, yes, its benefits show faster than you can think of a rhyme for orange.

    Reviewer's photos of clearing their acne in four stages from moderate to clear

    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 $19.99+ (available in two sizes).

    To learn more, check out "This Vitamin C Face Serum May Give You The Best Dang Skin Of Your Life."

    15. A tea tree face cream that'll not only help people with oily skin finally properly moisturize (do! not! skip!), but treat cystic acne, redness, and blackheads. So put DOWN the harsh acne treatments, and use this formula of pomegranate seeds, tea tree oil, and aloe vera to nourish your complexion back to smooth and clear. Plus, reviewers say it works quickly!

    Reviewer's before-and-after with severe acne on their cheek to almost fully clear

    Promising review: "Great improvement within three days! I haven't had any new flareups and the cystic acne I already had is healing quickly. Even old scars seem to be healing faster. So happy with this cream!" —Mommy Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $17.80.

    16. A set of NeoGen wine peeling pads so you can clear dead skin cells and lingering breakouts (looking at you, week-long zit) in just one, two, swipe. Each pad's three-layer technology, plus powerful lactic acid and red wine extract, penetrates deep into clogged pores to eliminate dirt and oil. Feel free to have a glass of actual wine to toast that pimple goodbye.,

    Promising review: "I started implementing this in my skincare routine to help me treat the acne on my face. When I bought this, I was already in the process of recovering from acne and was hoping that this product would help me fade my acne scars via exfoliation. I use this about twice a week, and I always notice an immediate difference in my skin texture after using it. These exfoliation pads do an amazing job at making my skin baby soft, and I do believe that my skin has never looked better with routine use of these pads and an effective skincare routine." —Anna

    Get a pack of 30 from Amazon for $27 (available in three formulas).

    To learn more, check out "Hundreds Of People Love Exfoliating With These Neogen Pads, And This Is Why."

    17. A Mario Badescu healing powder for both concealing and treating your acne at the same time. It doubles as a setting powder to absorb excess oil, but it'll also drastically reduce redness and irritation. Basically you can speak "pimple, what pimple?" into existence after putting this on under makeup.

    The healing powder

    PLUS! It leaves room for your pores to breathe, rather than clogging them.

    Promising review: "This stuff is incredible! I have now been using it for three years and every time I get close to running out, I go and buy another one right away. I have adult moderate cystic acne and this stuff really calms it down and helps with redness. Anytime I feel like I am getting a pimple or can see the under-the-skin bump, I will lather this healing powder all over it all day long. Definitely a go-to product and I highly recommend to anyone who suffers from incredibly painful and stubborn cystic acne." —justanothercollegestudent

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    18. A pore vacuum, because this'll prove to be just as effective as it sounds — it suctions buildup hidden in clogged pores, exfoliates dead skin cells, and removes excess oil (so they can't come back). Meaning, this'll treat pesky blackheads faster than you can pick.

    Reviewer's before-and-after of their nose with blackheads and then clear

    Promising review: "I bought this blackhead remover for my T-zone, because I have blackheads on my nose a lot. It really works and I love it!!! I used my facial steamer for about five minutes before using this blackhead remover. It removed so much gunk! It has great suction and gets the tiny blackheads in a pinch! And you can see the oily bits come out stick to the machine heads, but not painfully or with any discomfort." —Viola

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    This is pretty powerful (reviewers say not to keep it on one spot for too long), so if you have super sensitive skin I'd suggest using gentler — but equally effective! — pore strips ($7.49 on Amazon).

    19. A Paula's Choice pore cleanser that'll employ ever-dependable salicylic acid to treat breakouts, reduce redness, and treat uneven skin tones by gently removing excess oil and dirt. Basically, as long as you remember to wash your face, you'll be on a ~clear path~ in no time.

    The pore cleanser

    Promising review: "I'm happy to say that this face cleanser is doing a lot for my skin! I've had long standing adult acne and skin irritation ever since I entered my twenties and have gone through so many face cleansers and acne treatment products that I can no longer count all of them. I've had this product for almost a week now and I use it in the morning and at night in the shower. Every single time I've used it my skin feels clean, but not dry at all! My acne, scars, redness, and irritation has all starting to slowly disappear, and I can't wait to see what my skin will look like in a month or two!" —Alliethealligator

    Get it from Amazon for $13.

    20. A Differin gel acne treatment so you can use essentially one of the strongest spot treatments that you can get without a prescription. Its *super* strong retinoid formula regulates skin cell turnover (aka reveals a new layer of skin) to reach inflammation deep within the breakout. Translation: there's nowhere for that darn pimple to hide.

    This is *very* strong and reviewers say that while it works, it might make your skin sensitive and dry while it adjusts (much like Accutane). They recommend that you always moisturize after using this, and to use it at night while you're out of the sun.

    Promising review: "It definitely works. I was on a prescription retinoid and benzoyl peroxide combo cream (it’s double the price) + spironolactone pill for my hormonal acne before and it worked. I had to stop both for a while for personal reasons, after several months my hormones started acting up again. I had a really bad breakout, so I asked my doctor if I can at least get back on the cream, my doctor advised me to try this instead. Any active pimples heal very fast, scarring and texture is also improving. And I don’t even have to bother with prescriptions anymore." —LC

    Get it from Amazon for $11.66+ (available in two sizes).

    21. A CeraVe salicylic body wash for clearing acne and rough skin ALL over (not just your face). It needs only a few ingredients to treat bumpy skin: essential ceramides to restore natural hydration and salicylic acid to exfoliate and soften. The best part? It's all achieved with a few good lathers in the shower.

    The body wash

    Promising review: "I recently moved and the climate change was wreaking havoc on my skin. I had bumps on my skin from the heat and dryness and my keratosis pilaris was resurfacing for the first time in almost 10 years on my arms and back of my legs. No moisturizer or 'hydrating' body wash was working. I was truly miserable. I decided to buy CeraVe SA body wash and have never looked back. It's light, fragrant-free, and literally worked after two showers. I love this stuff!!! In all seriousness, this stuff worked for me and it might work for you. For the price you can't go wrong." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    22. A Christina Moss facial cleanser, because this'll work quickly on sensitive skin to clear out any pesky blackheads, clogged pores, and cystic pimples. Its formula is all-natural, organic, and SUPER gentle so your skin will never get irritated.

    Reviewer's before-and-after of their dry, uneven skin and then smoother, brighter skin

    Its main ingredients (drumroll, please): rosemary flower extract (to cleanse and control oils), olive fruit oil (to prevent and reverse damage from UV rays), aloe vera juice (to help heal irritated, broken-out skin), and coconut oil (to smooth and moisturize).

    Promising review: "I'm one of those people who literally never got any pimples or blackheads as a teenager. With that said, when I did start having acne, I spent hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on products over the last 10 years trying to find the product that would clear up my cystic acne/oily skin. I've used everything and while each of those gave my skin some improvement, none of those were clearing up my skin and smoothing my texture like Christina Moss Naturals. It has been just under two weeks since I started this product and I can already see my skin looking 50% better than when I started. I'm getting compliments left and right, and people are asking me what I am doing different to make my skin glow. It's AMAZING! I think I have finally found what my skin has been craving for the last 15 years." —Kristina Owens

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    23. A Yes To charcoal scrub and cleanser stick that'll make sure you can wish pimples adieu with just a flick of your wrist. It uses charcoal, moisturizing avocado, and coconut oil to help you gently exfoliate your way back to clear skin *and* no more excess oil.

    The cleanser stick

    Promising review: "This is an amazing product. It cleared my face in just a single wash. I highly recommend this product to all of my friends now!!!" —Olivia Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in two formulas).

    24. A bottle of Ebanel drying lotion so you can kill your zits on sight and keep yourself from popping or picking — aka making everything worse. Dab this on, go to sleep, and wake up a whole lot happier.

    Promising review: "Wow! I am seriously amazed by how much better this works than more expensive acne products. I got one of the worst breakouts in my life all around my jaw line and forehead, and this stuff has been clearing it up in one application. I’m on my third day and they’re almost gone. This definitely works!" —Mimicakes

    Get it from Amazon for $14.94.

    25. A jelly-like, blue algae mask for resurfacing dead skin cells where your breakout lies so it's easier to ~unclog~ irritated pores and pimples. It's essentially an at-home peel that'll reveal allll that built-up oil and sebum and leave you with fresh, smooth skin.

    This is personally my favorite for bringing acne to a head. It's strong (it contains 10% AHA and 0.5% BHA) so I use it as a spot treatment, rather than a full mask. Whenever I have an extra tough pimple that I'd usually pick and make worse, I apply this for 15-20 minutes, and it *always* becomes a whitehead. Plus, I only use a little, so the $43 lasts a longgg time!

    Promising review: "Instant results. The skincare industry has taught me to be wary of big claims, but this actually lives up to the hype. After the first use, my skin was smoother and softer. Using once a week, I’ve seen real improvement in my skin. This is a keeper." —JWomble

    Get it from Peach & Lily for $43.

    26. A TruSkin tea tree serum, because this'll use its powerful blend of 20% vitamin C, retinol, niacinamide, salicylic acid, and hyaluronic acid to unclog stubborn pores and deeply nourish irritated skin — which is a nice way to say it tells breakouts to get the hell out of here.

    Reviewer's before-and-after of their cheek acne and then almost fully clear cheek with minimal scarring

    Basically, anything with retinol resurfaces new skin so deep pimples can be brought to a head, leaving your complexion clearer, glowing, and moisturized.

    Promising review: "The stuff is seriously unbelievable. I’ve had terrible skin my entire life including a long stent with Accutane in my teens. After reading a lot of reviews, I finally decided to pull the trigger with this product and I’m really happy I did. After I put on some witch hazel and then apply the stuff, my skin feels a little tingly/burning, but it only lasts for 30 seconds then it feels amazing. I’ve been doing this for less than three weeks and my skin has changed dramatically. The cystic acne that I’ve had for almost 20 years is gone. The sallow skin color and red spots are completely gone. This product is worth it in every way — go buy it now." —Missy Moore

    Get it from Amazon for $24.79.

    27. A set of Nip + Fab glycolic cleansing pads that'll laugh in the face of acne by resurfacing new skin in no time at all, thanks to their formula of exfoliating 2.8% glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, witch hazel, and a light moisturizer. Even if you're mid-breakout, these are gentle enough to tackle active pimples — and cost less than a dollar per pad.,

    FYI, the witch hazel is there to soothe and tone your skin (to balance out the other exfoliating properties). And if you're a skincare obsessive like me, I don't have to tell you how great a deal $13 is for glycolic acid. Bless.

    Promising review: "I am new to the world of AHAs and glycolic acid, so I'm not sure how this product measures up to others similar to it. But I'll never go back to NOT exfoliating. I've noticed my stubborn acne scars fading drastically after only a week of using these nightly. My recurring acne in those areas seem to be dying down, and my overall skin tone seems to be brightening. I am really impressed so far!" —Mitzy McMillion

    Get a jar of 60 pads from Amazon for $12.39.

    28. A Seoul Ceuticals serum so you can nourish any irritation with a powerful blend of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. It'll reduce pores and breakouts, target discoloration, and make your overall complexion ~brighter~. I think this serum is already more productive than I'll ever be.

    Reviewer's before-and-after to show red, dull complexion and then brighter, clear skin

    Promising review: "This by far is the best skincare-grade vitamin C I have used. My skin has a great natural glow. My skin tone is even and the fine lines around my corner of the eye area are less noticeable. This product come well-packaged and as a lovely light citrus smell. I use it morning and night with no sensitivities. I love this product and will definitely repurchase it." —Carmen

    Get it from Amazon for $14.44.

    29. A bottle of Glossier Solution that'll clear breakouts faster than you can say "pop" thanks to this exfoliating blend of alpha hydroxy acid, beta hydroxy acid, and polyhydroxy acid. Reviewers l-o-v-e this for fading acne scars and treating active breakouts.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I've wanted to try it for the longest time after seeing what it did to a friend's acne. I've only been using it for a week, but I'm already blown away but the results. I use it at night and when I wake up in the morning my normally oily and red skin is smooth and even, and any pimples from the night before are just gone. I can't recommend this product enough this is a must-have!" —Katie

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    30. A The Body Shop tea tree clay face mask so you can deliver a cooling sensation on tough, active breakouts. Basically, you'll be saying ahhh not AHHHH when treating your complexion from now on. It'll fully cleanse pores, control excess oil, and target deep breakouts with tea tree oil to get you clear STAT.

    Promising review: "I received this on May 16 and have been using it twice a week since. Let me just say, wow! This has helped so much with the cystic acne I had. I'm currently nursing my son and can't take the oral medications or use the topical prescriptions. My skin hurt from all the cysts. I started using this, and like all acne treatments, my skin did get a bit worse before it got better. But after just a few weeks, I saw a huge difference. I would see a cyst starting, use the mask, and wake up with a small whitehead instead of a giant, painful, red cyst. As of July 2nd, I have zero cysts and two whiteheads. The redness is fading and my skin looks and feels better. I highly recommend giving this a try!" —JBake

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    31. A TreeActiv acne spot treatment for an *incognito* approach to wishing acne farewell. This goes on CLEAR, aka you can wear it under your makeup to let its peppermint and tea tree oil formula have a word with your pimple as you go about your day. The conversation will go like this: go away.

    FYI, this is a great spot treatment for anyone with sensitive skin because it's gentler than most!

    Promising review: "I used to use Zapzyt (benzoyl peroxide 10%) as spot treatment, but it just stopped working one day. After trying a bunch of different products using salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and even trying some corticoid creams. NOTHING WORKED!!!! I ended up looking up some other natural solutions and came across this spot treatment. After using it for a week on two of my stubborn pimples (that I had basically tried every type of product on), THEY FINALLY WENT AWAY. I WAS SHOCKED. They were on my face for at least three weeks before I tried using this spot treatment, and they went away in less than a week! I recommend this to anyone who has stubborn acne like mine. Another plus is, this stuff feels and smells way better than any other acne treatment I've tried. Other treatments dry my skin out like nobody's business leaving my skin patchy, while using this didn't really affect my skin moisture. Also, it leaves a nice minty feeling on the skin for the first few seconds it is applied. I looooveee the smell of it. Definitely will buy again when I run out!" —Annabelle H.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95.
