Whenever you’re looking for a reliable spot treatment, the secret is to look at the ingredient list. There are tons of pimple creams on the shelves that just don’t have the right actives in and therefore don’t really make much difference at all. This spot cream is NOT one of those treatments; it packs a serious punch and will help you take down your pimple ASAP as it boasts one of the most potent pimple-banishing ingredients in skincare RN.

The Pimple Treatment

Packed with the active ingredient salicylic acid, the Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Acne Spot Treatment, $10, helps break apart pore blockages and exfoliate the pore. Salicylic acid also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties to help reduce the size of the pimple and kill bacteria.

As you can gather from the name, the inkey list also includes detoxifying charcoal and antioxidant-rich tomatoes, which help to brighten and soothe the skin. The formula also packs aloe vera and tea tree to hydrate, soothe, and reduce redness. Finally, bisabolol and ginger extract (another powerful antiseptic), help reduce inflammation. This treatment really is designed to shut that pimple DOWN!

The Reviews

If you’re still skeptical, just check out these rave reviews: One Ulta shopper wrote, “This product works so quickly. My face was clear by the next day. All of my acne was just gone.” With that said, some of the reviews said they experienced problems getting the formula to come through the applicator; “This is perfect!! At first, I couldn’t figure out how to get the product out but I would heat it up in my hands and shook vigorously then it worked like magic. The minute I put on my acne it reduced redness and blemishes. I love it.” Although the initial use may be a little confusing, the roller applicator lowers the risk of transferring dirt from your finger to the pimple and worsening the breakout.

How To Use The Pimple Treatment

Apply the pimple treatment to cleansed skin using the roller ball applicator. We recommend shaking well first and rubbing to encourage the formula to come through.
