    2. Neutrogena's Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask is basically a pimple eraser.

    16. Origins' Charcoal Mask is life-changing for people who are struggling with cystic acne.

    @Simonelovesmakeup / Via

    "I have a lot of problems with cystic acne on my chin and upper back. I usually spot treatment that area over night and it either forms a head or reduces the swelling 75%. I have never been able to use many acne treatments for my cysts because they'll just dry them out. This mask actually deeply cleans your skin." —Regan Hamm, Facebook
