    1. Mighty Patches work while you sleep to absorb all the yucky gunk in your pimples, so when you wake up, your zits are significantly tamed. The bonus? You can also take some excellent before and afters of your own.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you have issues with acne (especially those nasty whiteheads) but can't afford all the fancy step-by-step treatments out there, you at least need to buy these. This truly worked at minimizing my pimples, sucking up the wound and keeping big pimples from getting worse. It really does draw up the pus to the patch! I leave one on overnight and just slowly peel it off and then wipe away any remaining pus. I even let my mom who was visiting try it on her pimple and she loved them, so I had to order more!" —Megan Meehan

    2. Glossier Solution exfoliates dead skin with AHA, BHA, and PHA acids. This trio combats breakouts and minimizes areas with discoloration or dark spots. It's also suitable for *all* skin types, making it easy to incorporate in your skincare routine.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I only realized how much Solution has improved my skin when I looked at a photo of my unedited skin from six months ago. I have normal skin — slightly dry in winter, slightly oily in summer — and used to have hormonal breakouts pretty much constantly. Now I rarely get spots, even the week before my period. Before I bought it, I was worried that Solution would be too harsh, because I don't like the feeling of stripping my skin. But it really is gentle enough to use every day and I love the fresh, clear, healthy skin glow it gives. I was skeptical that a product could be this good, but it really is worth the hype." —Beth

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    3. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream hydrates the most sensitive skin with its gentle, fragrance-free formula. Reviewers love it too, because it absorbs quickly and contains ceramides that help strengthen the skin barrier and diminish dry areas.

    Promising review: "This cream changed my life! I had been suffering with severe hormonal acne after weaning my baby, and it just wouldn’t go away! After a week of this miracle cream, my face cleared up significantly! It’s mild and absorbs quickly. It never irritated my skin and leaves your skin nice and soft. It's perfect to wear under makeup. I wear it in place of a moisturizer and won’t switch to anything else!" —Steveson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.08.

    4. Versed Skincare Just Breathe Clarifying Serum soothes stressed out skin: a willow bark extract, niacinamide, and zinc blend help tame irritation, redness, and clogged pores. If your complexion is having a mini freak-out, add this gentle serum to your regimen.

    Versed Skincare

    Promising review: "I was on a hunt for niacinamide serum and this hit a jackpot. Blemishes on my cheeks are fading after constant use (two times a day and it took about a week to notice the changes) and pores are looking smaller than before. This will be my holy grail and will be added to my daily routine for a long time!" —Versed Skincare Customer

    Get it from Versed Skincare for $19.99.

    5. Aria Starr Dead Sea Mud Mask draws out dirt, impurities, and dead skin, so your face can be free from pesky acne and blackheads. It's formulated with minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulphur, and zinc that'll exfoliate and deep-clean areas around your forehead, cheeks, and chin.

    Promising review: "I ordered this face mask right as I was finishing up finals week, as I always seem to break out from all the stress. I applied this mask with one of my silicone mask brushes and wow: I had visible results after the first use! I have combination skin and each time I've used this, my skin looks clearer and clearer and feels great. I usually wait until it's completely dry and then either rinse it off in the shower or rinse gently with a warm washcloth in circular motions. I've used this mask a few times now and I still have a lot of product left, which is also a plus because I hate buying a mask only to have to keep buying it over and over again." —Makayla Anfinson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    6. Differin's Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment ~hits the spot~ for treating clogged pores and stubborn blemishes. It helps prevent acne from making a return to your cheeks, chin, and forehead *and* halts breakouts in their tracks, thanks to its noncomedogenic formula.

    Promising review: "Don’t give up on it! I started using this product two months ago because I still struggle with breakouts even after most of my acne cleared. But this baby took me to the next level. My skin tone is evening out. My scars are less visible. I will never stop using this product and I love the pump version." —Shelbs

    Get it from Amazon for $12.88+ (also available in packs of two and a 45–gram size).

    This micellar water is paraben-, fragrance-, sulfate-, and silicone-free. It's also suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin.

    Promising review: "I usually use expensive waterproof makeup removers, because I have such sensitive skin. I ordered the small bottle to give it a try and I've been using this for a little over a couple of weeks now. It easily removes waterproof eye makeup if you follow their directions, and it doesn't burn or irritate my eyes. Other more expensive cleansers take multiple times to get off my eye makeup. I typically use this twice a day — after the gym and nightly — and my skin has cleared up significantly. No burning, no breakouts and one quick and easy step! I can always tell I'm left with super clean skin. Love it!" —Sunny

    Get it from Amazon for $6.34+ (also available in a 2-pack and 3-pack).

    8. Belif's The True Cream Aqua Bomb is like a water fountain for extremely dry skin: This gel cream contains lady's mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris), ceramide 3, and glycerin, and absorbs quickly for a glowing, moisture-rich complexion.

    Sephora, Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Editor Rachel Dunkel loves this skincare product and said: "What makes Aqua Bomb so special is its gel-cream formula, which is cooling and calming on the skin — like giving your skin a big ol' glass of water. It feels as incredible to put on sun-weary skin in the hot months of summer as on chapped, dry skin in the winter. It's an everyday, all year product." Read more of her Belif's The True Cream Aqua Bomb review here.

    Promising review: "I have acne-prone skin and trust me I have tried every other product available for fighting acne in the stores. I started using this cream just two months ago and I am so thankful for this purchase. It gives just the perfect amount of hydration my skin needs and I have seen my acne reduced so much in just one month." —Sephora Customer

    Get it from Sephora for $38.

    9. Shea Moisture African Black Soap multitasks with just one wash: it absorbs excess oil, clarifies your complexion, and moisturizes dry spots. Formulated for troubled skin, it contains soothing shea butter, oats, and teatree oil. Plus, it costs less than $5 to add to your skincare lineup!

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I usually use a face wash in a pump bottle. However, after reading reviews and seeing the soap on BuzzFeed, I thought I would give it a try. I have cystic acne (under the skin) and it hurts. I also have blackheads on my nose. This soap seems to help both. While cystic acne requires medication, this soap definitely keeps the skin clean, tight, and soft." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $3.86.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have used organic cotton face pads for decades, for toners, micellar water, makeup remover, etc. It always bothered me that I could not find a suitable solution to make this part of my personal care routine less wasteful. These are perfect. Super soft. The black side for mascara and lipstick is brilliant. I use them for everything and no longer throw away or compost all those cotton pads. They also wash easily in the provided mesh bag." —michelina

    Promising review: "I have never seen as big of a difference in my skin as I have with this product. It is my go to and I plan to stick with this in my routine daily. My skin is smoother and has a much more even tone and glow. I stopped wearing any sort of foundation or concealer after consistently using Biossance products as I feel they really make a difference. Even friends have noticed a change in the past few months. Obsessed!" —Biossance Customer

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mask is simply amazing. When I first opened it, I was a little disappointed by the size. Surely this isn't enough to last, but I soldiered on, applying little dabs with the convenient paddle. I discovered a little goes a VERY long way. I let it settle for five minutes and it began to bubble! I looked like a little gray pig — oink! Then I massaged with tepid water, rinsed well, and wow! My pores were unclogged and my skin was baby soft. I use products more expensive than this little jar, but it achieved and exceed those same results! So impressed. My skin is oily in my T-zone and super sensitive. This did not overly dry my skin or irritate at all!" —Sam l. Holloway

    Get it from Amazon for $8.59.

    14. Beauty by Earth Self Tanner seamlessly blends into your skin to give you a sun-kissed glow without orange residue.

This did not make me look orange whatsoever. My tan looks very natural and it does not have that lingering odor as most self tanners do. It was also very easy to apply and made my skin feel amazing! Will definitely be a repeat customer and will be recommending to my friends and family!" —Michelle W.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have every skin issue you can think of. I’ve spent probably thousands on a multitude of different products, trying to find one that would at least make a dent. I’ve had many procedures, many trips to the dermatologist. Nothing I’ve ever used, nothing I’ve ever done, has made such a profound difference in the appearance of my skin. Having rosacea, my face often felt hot, bumpy, and burned. While my complexion is naturally fair and pink, this has seriously covered all my bases in a gentle and effective way. I’ve been trying to turn my skin around for YEARS! This was the product that did it. If I could give it 100 stars I would. It has seriously changed my life!" —hc

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried multiple vitamin C serums, but this one is by far my favorite. The smell is lovely and it goes on very light. My skin has been looking brighter and clearer since using this.I also love that the bottle is protected from light. I purchased another serum product where you could tell the product went bad as the smell changed. I researched later and learned that proper storage for vitamin C serum must be in bottles that block out the light, as that retains all the qualities of the minerals and vitamins in the product. I am purchasing this again for the second time now. Highly recommend!" —Serena

    Get it from Amazon for $17.78.

    Promising review: "When I was about 21, I switched to a birth control implant, and that thing wreaked havoc on my entire life. I suddenly had horrible cystic acne. Not only did it make me self-conscious and uncomfortable, but it was actually so painful — laying on my pillow hurt my face! Finally, I found La Roche-Posay's skincare products. Within four days, the inflammation decreased, the redness was fading, and my skin felt less dry. By two weeks, my skin was practically clear! I have been using this product for about five years now and I haven't had a single outbreak, except for the time I wanted to try a different product to save money. Huge mistake — one I will not make again. I get compliments on my skin regularly, and I feel confident not wearing makeup. Give this system a chance!" —LadyHawke

I ideally use it once-a-week, and it feels as if angels themselves have taken the time to delicately renew my skin with the magical touch of their wings. Okay, but really. I wear foundation daily, have combination and sensitive skin, and require hypo-allergenic products. I truly feel this product is a part of how I maintain week after week breakout-free. I mix with equal parts water and vinegar and use the sensitive-skin time recommendation to avoid over-drying or any tenderness afterward, moisturize, and I'm good to go! I also find it works wonders as a spot treatment for the pimples that do happen to appear every-so-often. I love this stuff, use it often, and it still lasts forever.

    Promising review: "I had never heard of this brand before, so I wasn't sure what to expect and wanted to use this for a little while to share more than just my immediate impression.

    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!
