When we shared our favorite overnight spot treatments last year, we couldn't wait for you guys to try them out. Because, as we broke down in that story, different ingredients work for different people. And naturally, it'll be impossible for us try out every single one on the market—and that's where you Preview girls come in. We received a handful of recommendations from you about your top skin saviors, so we figured, why not spread the word?
Please welcome, the reader-approved acne remedies you should try ASAP!

Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask, Healthy Options
Paola Jannicke Balugay recommends masking with activated charcoal for your acne troubles. "Use once every two weeks. If you already have pimples, put it directly on the pimple and let it stay for 10 minutes. The pimple will dry out in three hours or so," she says. She also uses this mask for her nightly rituals!

VMV Hypoallergenics Superskin 3 Monolaurin + Mandelic Acid Toner, P1310, Powerplant Mall
Yin Apurada's top pick for acne is mandelic acid, an antibacterial ingredient. She uses a 30% mandelic acid treatment from Dr. Hsieh that's only found in Taiwan, but you can definitely find other products with the same component!

The Face Shop Clean Face Spot Corrector, SM Megamall
The tea tree-based treatment from The Face Shop is PJ Aspiras' reco for fellow acne-prone girls. The likes on her comment don't lie!
Benzac Spots Treatment 5% concentration, P326, Mercury Drug
We already featured this product in our first article, but Preview girls like Mercelin Mendoza Sebastian couldn't help but attest to its effectivity. Same goes for the Celeteque corrector gel!
Katialis Ointment, Mercury Drug
Cez Quijada's suggestion is an oldie but, according to her, a definite goodie. She says it'll dry out your zits by morning! Doesn't hurt that it's incredibly affordable, too.
