"It is the absolute best face wash for my skin. I’m a little too old for crazy acne, but I still have the occasional breakout. This face ash keeps my skin balanced and calm with the cucumber and rose water. And it smells delicious!" —oliviac43f6deef5

3. Avon Anew Vitale Gel Cleanser, $10

"I’ve been using it for about six months now and it’s great! Not a single breakout, skin feels very firm, smooth, and dry (in a good way). I had a scar above my left eyebrow, and it’s nearly invisible now." —b4a2de6a1c

4. Yes to Grapefruit Brightening Peel, $15.19

"I have combo skin and I’m super sensitive. It really does shrink pores, takes off any dry loose patches, and, coz it’s a citrus peel, it doesn’t mess you up if you use it often, or forget to set your timer right away." —aimeey2

"This product is magic. It's great for acne and zapping spots before they demonize themselves. Just do not shake first, and use a Q-tip to dab it on. Amazing!" —fuzzypenguins24

8. Aztec Secret Bentonite Clay Mask, $9.34

https://www.instagram.com/p/BJIs-s0Bpcg/

"Recently I had the WORST breakout in my life from detoxing. I had bumps ALL over my face like the back of a Nestle Crunch bar. After a week of trying everything from natural remedies to skin care aisle stuff, I stumbled upon this and I am so grateful it exists. I saw a significant decrease in size overnight and they went away completely within a few days." —icecreamriot

9. Dr. Jart Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer, $36

"As I get older, I notice my acne prone combination skin has moved away from breakouts and more into fine lines and dry patches. This moisturizer is light enough to not cause breakouts, but leaves my skin feeling soft and supple. The best part is, a little goes a long way!" — anneo42f4e5e98

13. Essential oils (various)

You can add them to witch hazel to make a toner. Add them to vitamin E oil to make a facial serum. Add them to coconut oil to make a cream or lotion." —Rachel Howatt, Facebook(Ed.: Use essential oils very sparingly and try a test patch before using on your entire face.)
