* It’s important to find the right cream to treat your skin type
* Drugstore brands often pack added chemicals that can be harsh on your face
* New brands are committed to creating one product that has many roles

If you suffer from acne, the last thing you want to hear is someone giving their advice. Drink more water. Eat clean. Be less stressed. Try blah blah face wash (as if you haven’t already tried them all). We’re not here to tell you that using an acne face wash will help your skin. You know that. Been there, bought the cream. What we are here to do is help you find brands that you haven’t seen in the drug store that may work with your specific skin type. Also, consider this an internet hug. Struggling with acne is approximately zero fun.

Whether you have sensitive skin, oily skin, are looking for a product that will be a quick fix, or an alternative to the medicated creams your doctor has prescribed, we’ve got you covered. Here are five new acne creams that could help you finally live that #blemishfreelife.


1. Humane Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Acne Treatment Body & Face Wash

Humane Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Acne Treatment Body & Face Wash is ideal for anyone who suffers from both face and body acne. With 10 per cent benzoyl peroxide, Humane isn’t for users with sensitive skin, instead working similarly to its doctor prescribed competitors. It could take up to six weeks for users to see results, but many customers say that if you stick to Humane’s suggested routine of using in the morning and at night, the results are incredible.

2. OrganiClear Acne Treatment

If you do have sensitive skin and are trying to treat your acne without aggravating your face even more, try the OrganiClear Acne Treatment. The three-cream system helps treat cystic, hormonal and adult acne with salicyilic acid, benzoyl peroxide and soothing chamomile. The day and night cleanser doubles as a makeup remover and the ingredients are vegan and organic, making it safe for people with allergies.

3. Acne Cream with Aloe and Ginseng

If you’ve ever dealt with acne, you know time is of the essence. Acne Cream with Aloe and Ginseng boasts the ability to reduce blemishes within four hours, while also decreasing redness. Boasting natural herbal extracts, the cream can be used before makeup is applied, creating a smooth base. The cream can pull double duty as a spot treatment and on the entire face.

4. TEENA Skin Care

Finding a cream that checks multiple boxes is not only easy on your wallet, it also makes morning and nighttime routines more streamlined and fast. The TEENA Skin Care Facial Cleanser and Vegan Face Wash is a deep pore cleanser and an acne-fighting face wash all in one. Natural ingredients like vitamin B5, rosehip oil and hemp seed oil are mixed with salicylic acid to help fight blemishes and brighten, with a mixture that’s soft enough to use on sensitive skin. Fans of TEENA love that is also removes makeup and leaves their face smelling great.

REFLEKT Exfoliating Face Wash uses hyaluronic acid to minimize pores, fight acne, and help give skin a plumper, younger look and feel. Using  vegetable collagen and Vitamin B5, REFLEXT is gentle enough to work with sensitive and oily skin and can be used twice per day.
