    32 Things That May Help If You Are Just So Done With Breaking Out

    Any last words, pimples? Too late.

    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 pack of Avarelle rounded or extra-large acne patches to tackle every kind of breakout that dares to challenge your complexion. They're both powered by tea tree oil and calendula oil (all of which are gentle on sensitive skin) to reduce inflammation and absorb pus, whether it's just one zit or a spread-out breakout you can cover with one patch.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Everyone should have these on-hand for a stubborn zit when you really need them." —Caitlyn

    Get a box of 40 round patches for $8.50 and a box of 8 extra-large patches for $8.50, both from Amazon.

    2. A retinol serum (a fancy name for vitamin A) that'll 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, because it's so 👏 darn 👏 effective 👏.

    amazon.com

    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.

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

    instagram.com

    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 $9.59 (available in two formulas).

    4. 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.

    amazon.com

    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 $6.99.

    5. A tub of Aztec healing clay for waging straight WAR on the most intimidating pimples. Seriously, this acts more like a vacuum than a mask — no matter how deep your acne goes, this mask will suction out every clogged pore in its path. AND it works on cystic acne!

    amazon.com

    By the way, this works best with apple cider vinegar!

    Promising review: "HOLY MONKEY EATING BANANAS. IT WORKS. I've only used it for two days (at night before sleep) and you can clearly see the difference! All the acnes dries up! It also makes my pores smaller. My skin feels smoother, I swear it looks like I'm wearing primer on my face. It's amazing." —karen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in two sizes).

    To learn more, check out "This Clay Mask Basically Vacuums Out Your Pores, And BRB I'm Going To Bathe In It".

    6. A set of Nip + Fab glycolic cleansing pads that'll resurface 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.

    instagram.com

    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 $10 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 pack of 60 from Amazon for $9.97.

    7. Or! A set of Nip + Fab glycolic night pads, because these'll seriously take action while you rest. Each pad is saturated in all-powerful glycolic acid to gently exfoliate and fade discoloration, acne scarring, pigmentation, or even active breakouts. Apply these life-savers before bed, sleep, and wake up to MAJOR improvements.

    instagram.com

    They're also great for treating blackheads and hydrating dry skin!

    Promising review: "This is great for acne-prone skin. It doesn’t burn your skin, but it removes dead skin cells leaving fresh, clear, smooth skin in the morning. I’m 65 and love these. My granddaughter is 20 and it cleared her stubborn acne up in a few days. Your skin actually glows and is super smooth! Price is so much lower than other products that claim they do the same thing but are higher priced!" —Princessnana1999

    Get a pack of 60 from Amazon for $10.19+ (available in two sizes).

    8. A Cosmedica hyaluronic serum so you can cheaply treat your skin to this widely-loved, holy grail ingredient. It addresses really every skin-clearing goal you could have — an even skin tone, brightness, clearing pimples, and encouraging our complexion to be smoother and softer. Think of this as an easy-peasy form of skin TLC.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Btw, this is used by both people with oily and dry skin (and is safe for sensitive skin!) — it counteracts oil overproduction with natural hydration *and* gently restores moisture to parched complexions.

    Promising review: "It works so well! I've been using the hyaluronic acid for about two weeks now, and my skin has felt full and smooth ever since! It also seems to have reduced oil production and eliminated the formation of whiteheads; I credit that to this helping my skin retain water and not having to produce so much oil." —J. Morris

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in three sizes).

    9. 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 treated acne won'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 $7.53.

    10. A Belei spot treatment that'll enlist 5.5% benzoyl peroxide to prove to your pimples that you are NOT messing around anymore. Don't toss and turn over that zit — this'll take care of it while you sleep.

    Amazon

    This is STRONG, so beware if you have sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I got this product two weeks ago. I have previously used prescription spot treatment, and this works better and much faster. The few single spots of acne I have had pop up have literally been gone by the next day without any skin dryness or peeling. This product is amazing. If you want to get rid of acne fast, this product is for you." —Shauna

    Get it from Amazon for $22.

    Learn more about Amazon's new skincare line in "Amazon Just Launched A Skincare Line Called Belei, And You're Gonna Want Everything".

    11. A pack of Bioré cleansing pore strips, because this'll be your new sidekick that acts 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.

    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.

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $7.25+ (available in three styles).

    To learn more, check out "These Amazingly Satisfying Pore Strips Are A Cult Favorite For A Reason".

    12. An Eva Naturals skin-clearing serum so you can depend on one heck of a formula that attacks breakouts ~head on~. We're talking 5% hyaluronic acid, 2% salicylic acid, and 20% vitamin C — just to name a few. Tl;dr: acne doesn't stand a chance.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this product in April and have waited this long to write a review, because I wanted to give it time to work. I'm 38 and have suffered from constant, cystic acne. My pores clog easy and I'm very oily. I am also biracial and scar very easily. Since April I think I've had three pimples (all period-related) that went away very quickly. That's a miracle. I put this product on at night after my shower and make sure it dries well. I'm still good on product and probably won't be reordering for another few weeks. I only use a small amount every day. I haven't been more pleased with something I bought on here or ANY store since...well never." —Autumn Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    13. A Skin Food steam pack for eliminating enlarged, clogged pores just by masking your nose (or wherever needs TLC). It's loaded with volcanic ash and egg protein to control sebum, reduce blackheads, and exfoliate your skin. In three to five minutes, those pesky dots will be a distant memory.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "From the first use my pores were cleaned out, even blackheads on my nose were almost gone. It really pulls the impurities out, leaving skin smooth, although it doesn't dehydrate my skin. This mask is remarkably effective." —Ann Martin

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    14. A bottle of Teddie Organics rose water toner spray that'll let you treat your acne on-the-go and tell redness and oily T-zones to take a hike. You just have to spritz. Not to mention it has a heavenly 🌹rose scent 🌹.

    amazon.com

    It'll also restore your skin's pH balance and fade redness. It's everything you want your toner to do, except now you can use it WHEREVER. Plus it's organic and suitable for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I have very acne-prone and sensitive skin that is pale with pink and red undertones. I break out very easily, and my skin is irritated even by the 'sensitive skin' brands and formulas. I have used EVERYTHING under the sun to aid in redness and sensitivity, and nothing has worked to calm flare-ups like this. I wake up and my skin is glowing and peachy pale, as opposed to red and blotchy. This rose water has not only improved my skin's redness and overall tone, but it has virtually eliminated any signs on acne. I use before I put on my redness moisturizer and before bed as a refresher. I also find myself spritzing at various times of the day, because the fragrance is so pleasant." —Kathy Pancake

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    15. A Mario Badescu healing powder, because this'll both conceal and treat 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.

    Amazon

    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.

    16. A Seoul Ceuticals vitamin C serum to 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~. And yes, it'll show results faster than you can think of what rhymes with "orange".

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dermatologist has had me on the nearly $200 Skinceuticals for a couple of years and I have bought it several times. I have tried to get off of it, but it does do something to my skin. So imagine when I find out about this product, Seoul Ceuticals? First I felt like a total chump — I can't believe I had paid so much in the past. Then I thought, it won't possibly work? Then I thought, hey, what do I have to lose? I've had it for about a week now and it is wonderful! I seriously think it might work better than the other product. My skin felt more smooth within just a couple of days." —M. B. Shaw

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    17. An Eco Tools cleansing brush so you can double the effectiveness of your acne face wash. It deep-cleanses pores and lightly exfoliates, meaning it gets to the *root* of the problem a heck of a lot better than just your fingers.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This facial brush is the perfect stiffness for my taste and easy to hold with its rounded, textured shape. With little effort, I can get a satisfying scrub that exfoliates without scraping too gently or too hard. I have sensitive, slightly oily skin and this is great." —Molly

    Get it from Amazon for $3.59.

    18. A Radha rosehip oil for brightening skin, dramatically reducing stubborn breakouts and pigmentation, and moisturizing dehydrated skin — all at the same time. How? It combines antioxidants and essential fatty acids to address your complexion's overall health so even cystic breakouts aren't simply masked.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. My skin has virtually no breakouts, appears smoother, and feels smoother now that I use this. I’m 32 and still get cystic acne, been on Accutane twice, and nothing worked. I’m so happy BuzzFeed had an article about it, I’m sold! Yes, its pretty oily, but it soaks in. I use it in the a.m. as my moisturizer and at p.m. before bed. It has a yellow tint, but fades after soaking in. I highly recommend it." —Emily Jacob

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    To learn more, check out "This Facial Oil Will Solve All Your Skin’s Problems".

    19. A TreeActiv cystic acne spot treatment that'll let you join the hundreds of reviewers who say this shaves 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.

    amazon.com

    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), 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’ll be honest — I really didn’t want to like this product. I wanted to be rid of my acne, but I wasn’t really interested in shelling out 25 bucks for a quarter-sized container — but OH MY GOSH. I have struggled with cystic acne on my chin and chest since I was 12 (over half of my life). I have tried everything short of Accutane. I tried this about a month before a wedding I was supposed to be in, AND MY CHIN AND CHEST WERE COMPLETELY CLEAR IN TWO WEEKS! This has happened maybe five times ever in my life! I have only had one cystic pimple come up in the month I’ve used this, and it lasted half as long! I cannot tell you how happy I am. One tiny container has lasted me over a month (which is impressive seeing as I used it to cover large portions)." —CAM

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

    To learn more about this, check out "Hundreds Of People Swear By This Spot Treatment For Cystic Acne".

    20. A set of Noxzema anti-blemish pads to clear breakouts with extremely little effort, courtesy of their formula of eucalyptus oil and menthol. They'll end your day with a *refreshing tingle*, smooth your complexion, and will never make you pay the price for having a dang pimple.

    Rubi On Repeat

    Promising review: "These pads are the best acne medicine on the market. You can actually feel them working, unlike other brands. They do a great job of helping to clear up blackheads, as well. I recommend using a little moisturizer periodically if you feel dryness. But they clear up pimples fast and I have not found anything better on the market." —Karl D

    Get a pack of 90 from Amazon for $11.68.

    To learn more, check out a full review from Rubi On Repeat in "All The Products I Use In My Skincare Routine And Why".

    21. A Mario Badescu glycolic acid toner, because this'll smooth over any tension between you and your skin by turning over dead skin cells faster than you can say "redness". It gently exfoliates and reduces dullness (and is a popular solution for excess oil and blackheads) so you don't need to spend $$$ on overpriced treatments.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "This is magic. I use it right after makeup removal and cleansing, but right before spot treating and moisturizing at night. I use it on an exfoliating cotton round, and my hyperpigmentation and the overall texture of my skin has improved significantly. Using this consistently has really helped my acne scarring considerably. I use it over open acne wounds on my face too and it's totally fine; it's a little stinging but I almost feel like it helps that way." —Stephanie Youssef

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in two sizes).

    See why this won best mid-priced toner on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    22. 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.

    amazon.com

    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." —BajanMarge

    Get it from Amazon for $14.50.

    23. A anti-bacterial pillow mist for spritzing away your acne woes when you spray this bb on your favorite pillow before drifting off. It kills acne-causing dirt and bacteria on sight with tea tree water so your bed is nothing but a safe 👏 space 👏 for your lil' face — aka your pillow won't undo your other acne products' hard work.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have really acne prone skin and breakouts still happening in my thirties. I spray this each night on my silk pillow and my zits have minimized drastically!" —Alina Hepfler

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    24. An Aveeno eczema moisturizing cream that'll soothe dry, itchy, and irritated skin with nothing more than oat, soy, kiwi, and blackberry extracts. According to reviewers, just a few swipes of this can seriously relieve your eczema.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm absolutely amazed at this stuff. I had a terrible allergic reaction and broke out with eczema all over my face (I have suffered with it for years, just never on my face). My eyes were completely swollen shut and red, and my face was peeling, in pain, inflamed, and DRY, DRY, DRY. I tried everything, and I mean everything. I ordered this and nearly instantly felt and saw results. These two pictures (above) are LESS THAN 24 HOURS APART. I've been using it now for three days and my face is 100% back to normal. I really like that this product is a cream versus a lotion, I feel like it helps soak in better and KEEPS the skin hydrated. I 100% recommend." —Kelsey Coultrip

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    25. A jar of Andalou Naturals pumpkin honey glycolic mask, because this'll let you enjoy a *treat yourself* moment that 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. Who knew finally conquering acne could take so little.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I've used the mask a couple times so far and I really do like it. I can mostly tell the next morning after using it, when my skin has a nice glow (which I haven't had in years due to acne and troubled skin). This product is really gentle!" —Jane Freeman

    Get it from Amazon for $8.87 (available in four formulas).

    26. A CosRX gel facial cleanser so you can start your mornings off with some *perks* by combining tea tree oil and natural BHA to shrink pores and improve your complexion's evenness, pimples be darned. Essentially, it tells harsher cleansers to clear out in the name of gentle treatment and fast results.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not the type of customer to rave over a product, but this cleanser has become my holy grail. After a couple of uses, my milia went away and my skin has gotten so much softer and dewier. I do combine this cleanser with Mizon All in One Snail Cream, and honestly you can't find another iconic duo." —Tiffany Nguyen

    Get it from Amazon for $9.10.

    To learn more, check out a BuzzFeeder's *glowing* review in "I Swear By This Highly-Rated Low pH Gel Cleanser To Clean Out My Pores".

    27. Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner for something that clears skin just as well (if not better) than most high-end toners, but wins at keeping sensitive skin in mind. It gently treats acne, brightens skin, and tightens pores *without* causing further breakouts — something everyone in the Sensitive Skin Club is all too familiar with.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I wish I had started using it sooner. I added it to my new daily skincare routine and after just a few days, my face looks and feels so much better. I have redness on my cheeks and nose thanks to the starting of rosacea, and I'm usually very sensitive to anything applied to my face. This toner soothes my skin after cleansing, smells great, and makes my skin feel amazing. I wish I knew about this years ago!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $4.69.

    See what won best face toners on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    28. A Teena salicylic face wash that'll streamline your routine when it comes to treating breakouts, thanks to its vegan formula of vitamin B5, rosehip oil, and hemp seed oil. It'll deep clean pores, improve clarity, and soften skin in one easy step. Not to mention, it's PINK?! Take. My. Money.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    I suppose you can say it lets you see breakouts through rose-colored glasses. It also brings out a ~natural glow~, thanks to the salicylic acid.

    Promising review: "I love this product! I suffer from some bad acne and I’ve tried many high-brand products and none of them would work for me. When I found this I was so excited! In a week I had amazing results; my face was clearing up and I’ve never been so confident with my skin. I totally recommend — this is a great price and it does wonders!" —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    29. A Tarte multitasking clay mask, because this is not one, but TWO masks to mix and match treatments for different skin concerns. The purple formula (great for T-zones) conquers shine by tightening pores and treating blemishes and blackheads, while the gold formula hones in on your cheeks and under-eyes to hydrate, brighten, and even calm redness and inflammation.

    Tarte

    We all have somewhat combo skin, meaning parts of our face probably need different products (i.e. my face is DRY, with the exception of my oily T-zone). This uses a combo of natural ingredients like Amazonian clay, jojoba oil (to soothe and soften), avocado oil (to boost vitamins), glycerin (to hydrate), and chamomile extract (to calm distressed skin).

    Promising review: "I love this product! It doesn't take much to apply, and it works great! It has almost immediate results, and face is left feeling fresh and clean. It is WORTH IT." —sara e

    Get it from Tarte for $40.

    30. A Freeman anti-stress clay mask so you can enjoy a pick-me-up whenever your skin is feeling *the blues*. Dead sea minerals absorb excess oil, purify clogged pores, and show pesky breakouts the door (all in just ten minutes). It even relaxes you with lavender aromatherapy so you can BREATHE and forget about that zit.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    Promising review: "First of all, I literally never write reviews. Like, ever. But I’ve used this once so far and WOW. I immediately noticed that my (usually giant) pores look much smaller and my skin looks all around smoother and more even. It even seemed less oily when I woke up this morning. I’ve used those little single-use face masks that come in pouches and never really noticed a difference, but this thing worked wonders after one use AND costs the same as one of those single-use pouches! I would highly recommend this — it’s way more effective than any other mask I’ve ever used and it’s so economical (a little bit goes a long way and there’s a ton of product in the tube). Definitely treat yo'self and grab a tube of this!" —Carey

    Get it from Amazon for $3.78.

    31. A The Body Shop tea tree clay face mask for delivering 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.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "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 $14.34.

    32. A bottle of Ebanel drying lotion that'll 👏 kill 👏 those 👏 zits on sight and keep you from popping or picking — aka making everything worse. Dab this on, go to sleep, and wake up a whole lot happier.

    amazon.com

    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 $14.20.
