Patch Of My Life
I’m all about pimple patches and haven’t found many that stand out to me. I love the Mighty Patch by Hero just simply because they come in smaller style packs that are easy to throw in a bag and go. They really work just as good as most pimple patches to help trap your pimples and dry them out overnight or during the day - which ever you choose to do. I do love the fact that these patches are very hard to see even after applying to the face. I have gone to the store a few times with them on and got no crazy looks ( that I know of ). They are light and not super heavy feeling on the skin. Easy to apply to the face and easy to take off. They do not irritate my skin at all and I have super sensitive skin. I love that these patches are super affordable and are found everywhere. Why didn’t we have these babies when I was a teenager?!?! HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Variety Pack

Acne Fighting Mask! GREAT Spot Treatment
This acne fighting mask is packed with acne-treating ingredients to exfoliate, absorb extra oil and cleanse clogged pores. So what's inside? Sulfur 10% This is the maximum, over-the-counter grade of sulfur. It clears the skin and can prevent future breakouts! Kaolin and Bentonite Clays Absorbs excess oil and cleans the pores. Aloe Vera Calms and hydrates the skin. The mask can be used all over or as a spot treatment. I prefer to use it only as a spot treatment because it can be a bit drying for my whole face. It works really well for any kind of cystic acne by reducing size and redness. Retailing for $52 this 5 oz jar will last me forever! Even if used as a full face mask, only a thin layer is needed.

OFRA Drying Lotion
OFRA - Drying Lotion - Almond This is meant to diminish the appearance of blemishes and reduce redness/size. I’ve used it a handful of times and have not seen a dramatice difference but the pimples don’t grow like they do sometimes and eventually diminish over time. The consistency is like liquid and dries really fast. You have to shake it up before use and rub quickly if you don‘t want it to show so I use it before bed. I like it but would not recommend it until I’ve used more of it and am sure of it’s potential. The price is also $22 so it’s a bit much for me.

MARIO BADESCU drying lotion💗
MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion This product is a spot treatment that is directly applied to acne and any blemishes. It’s marketed at anyone who struggles with acne. It has salicylic acid, sulfur which effectively dry out the blemish and calamine to slooth the skin. The formula separates into a liquid part and a pink clay like part which is what you put on your blemishes. The clay like part ends up drying up on your skin. I’m my opinion this product is fine but not amazing. I’ve used it for 1 year and it seems to improve my breakouts but never completely clears them after repeated use. It also was a little drying - not as much as some acne treatments but still a little drying. I have normal somewhat sensitive skin for reference. If you don’t get a lot of acne this might be a good product but probably not for those with more severe or cystic breakouts. However it does kind of work and lasts literally forever so I think it’s worth it. Not perfect but at 17 usd it’s pretty good.

Apple cider vinegar: 2 week check-in
I started my mornings with a cup of warm water, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and a splash of lemon juice. Jennifer Aniston says that this is the secret to aging gracefully and maintaining a healthy metabolism. ACV is also noted to help with bacterial and fungal acne, as well as brighten complexion. There are so many documented properties of the ACV cleanse (some researched and some a matter of opinion.) But here are the changes I saw: less puffiness improved skin brightness better skin texture more energy my gut felt healthier *I did not see as much change in my acne as I’d hoped, but I was also on my period the past week, and consumed a more sugary diet :( I really want to continue this process to see what the longer term benefits provide for me and my body. Also it was so refreshing to replace my cup of morning coffee for a cup of ACV. I felt refreshed and healthy.. and the ACV didn’t hit my gut as hard as my acidic morning coffee usually does. If you plan on doing this yourself, I recommend keeping the ACV to water ratio low, and not consuming more than 2 tablespoons of ACV, as the acidity could burn your oesophagus. ACV has acetic acid, which neutralizes the PH of your gut. But you definitely want to water that stuff down. (Also it’s super gross straight up, so why torture yourself?) All in all, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a homeopathic method of improving your overall skin health. Let me know if you end up trying this, and how it works for you!
Equate Beauty Quick Action Pads Acne Treatment
These pads would be a great option for those with acne to use. But if you have sensitive skin like me, these probably wouldn’t work. These pads burned my skin and made my skin red. But if you don’t have sensitive skin, I would still only recommend you use these 1-3 times a week because they are VERY strong.
