The promise of clear, blemish-free skin makes them worth the splurge.

When it comes to dealing with persistent teen acne, its best to look for tried-and-true formulas. They may not be the friendliest to your wallet today, but they’re definitely the most cost-efficient alternatives in the long run. We admit though, it’s hard to find a Holy Grail that actually merits its high price, so we’re here to help!

Below, we compiled a list of 10 effective anti-acne products that are actually worth your hard-earned money.

1. CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser

2. Pixi Glow Mud Mask

A clay mask is great for mopping up excess shine, but most of them tend to sting delicate skin. If you haven’t found one that works for you, try this mild wash-off mask from Pixi on your next at-home spa day.

3. Krave Beauty Great Barrier Relief

FYI: Using too many acne treatments at once can excessively dry out your skin, causing your pores to produce even more sebum. That’s why we suggest finding a buffer product for your harsh acne treatments, like this anti-inflammatory pick from Krave Beauty.
