Sharing skincare tips is a love language, and we will not be convinced otherwise. The Poosh team loves to wax poetic about this very topic on Slack (see, we do talk about things other than fingering and how long is too long in bed!).
Sometimes these tidbits are too good to keep to ourselves, like when Kourt and our CCO Sarah shared this comprehensive list of their very best skincare tips and this very story about our favorite affordable acne products. So without further ado, shop Poosh-approved, clean-ish acne products under $25.
The Inky List Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser
This lightweight gel cleanser contains a blend of exfoliating salicylic acid, oil-zapping zinc compound, and soothing allantoin.
Renee Rouleau Rapid Response Maskne Spray
Our wellness editor swears by Renee Rouleau’s Rapid Response products, obvs including this portable mist that contains AHA and BHA exfoliants to clear pores and prebiotic sugar to help balance skin’s microbiome.
Peach & Lily Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots
We have these adhesive dots on-hand for pimple emergencies. Not only do they help reduce inflammation and soak up excess pimple gunk, they also keep us from picking at our skin.
Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc Original Emu Bar Soap
The Poosh team has recommended this fragrance-free bar soap to so many people dealing with skin issues. Don’t let its unassuming looks fool you—the incredibly effective formula combines acne-fighting zinc with moisturizing and calming ingredients like calendula-infused olive oil and milled oats.
Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask
This treatment mask is one that we rave about on the reg. It’s packed with acne-fighting superstars like turmeric, papaya enzymes, and peppermint that leave skin looking glowy and smooth.
SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray
Gentle enough to be used morning and night, this facial spray gets its acne-fighting powers from anti-inflammatory and antibacterial hypochlorous acid. We also like to spritz it on post-workout to keep blemishes at bay.
Hero Mighty Patch Chin
When chin pimples happen in multiples, reach for this contoured patch to cover them all in one fell swoop. It’s sticky enough to stay on through talking, eating, and sleeping, but comes off gently.
COSRX Acne Blemish Spot Drying Lotion
Our managing editor is a big fan of this spot treatment. It helps dry up pimples overnight without totally drying out the skin, thanks to a balanced blend of acne-fighting actives (salicylic acid, willow bark extract, and zinc) and soothing, healing ingredients (vitamin B12 and calamine).
Rael Beauty Miracle Pimple Patch Microcrystal Spot Cover for Acne
