|Best For:||How to Use:|
|Tuel Clear It||$42|
(Will last you 3-6mos)
|Life-changing hormonal acne treatment that’s effective on regular acne, too.|
Though sulfur-based – it doesn’t smell!!
Can use as soon as a pimple appears, even if deep.
Will not cause peeling. A little goes a long way. Though expensive, it lasts for months. Just keep the cap on to prevent it from drying out.
Can get away with AM, but it has a slightly gritty texture & appears to have a slight dry sheen. Up to you.
|Smile’s PRID Drawing Salve*||$5-9||Best used on pimples that keep reappearing in the same spot.|
Over time (about a month or little over), it “draws out” gunk causing a reappearing pimple . Meaning, it will bring a deep pimple or repeat pimple trouble site that is currently flat/inactive to a head, sometimes several times as it gets the gunk out.
I’ve nixed a whole bunch of reoccurring pimples this way.
|Acne Recurring in the Same Spot||PM Only|
(It’s sticky & glossy.)
|Missha Speedy Solution Anti-Trouble Patch Set||$7||Best for run-of-the-mill acne & when put on overnight. I’ve found they’re named just right.|
Noticeable difference overnight, sometimes even a full zit squash. Can be used on deep pimples.
I’ve had to remember where I place them b/c they blend in.
** FYI: This has Salicylic Acid + Tea Tree towards the middle to bottom of the ingredient list. Both are suspect ingredients for me (still testing tea tree), but I don’t react to this product. Perhaps they’re low enough on the list (small enough dose) it works. **
Can also put them on & do chores, as they’re clear.
Some people have started a trend of painting concealer or foundation over this type of patch. (But, I haven’t tried!)
|Naturopathica Pumpkin Purifying Enzyme Peel*||Jar:|
1. Apply to cleansed skin
2. Wash off just before it dries
|Paula’s Choice 10% Azelaic Acid Booster*||$36||Spot Treatment|
No drying or irritation, just super gentle + effective.
AM or PM
A little goes a long way.
