One of the best places to buy skincare products is at your local drugstore. Places like Target, Walgreens and CVS have a host of skincare products from reputable brands for almost every type of issue, whether it be blackheads, pimples or major zits. And, the best part is that they're affordable! Here are a few of our favorite drugstore acne products that actually work!

neutrogena acne product

Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser

This Neutrogena cleanser is geared toward stubborn acne as it has a maximum strength formula that includes 10% benzoyl peroxide (most acne products only have 2% of benzoyl peroxide). "Benzoyl peroxide is a powerful ingredient that is effective against all kinds of acne lesions (blackheads, whiteheads, and big red pimples), says dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe.

biore acne product

Bioré Charcoal Acne Scrub

Gently scrub away acne-causing oil and bacteria with the Bioré Charcoal Acne scrub. It contains salicylic acid to treat and reduce acne, and activated charcoal to de-clog pores. According to Ulmer Dermatology, "Using activated charcoal for healthy skin is thought to work in a similar way to adsorbing poison in the stomach or keeping wounds clean — toxins present on the skin can bind to the activated charcoal instead of sitting there and eventually causing pimples and blackheads."

cetaphil acne product

Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash

Cetaphil's DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash is dermatologist-tested and clinically proven to remove excess oil and control shine. Less oil, less acne! The formula is gentle enough to target acne without drying out your skin.

garnier acne product

Garnier Naturals Deep Pore Facial Cleanser

Garnier's Naturals Deep Pore Facial Cleanser is a gentle, vegan formula that removes acne-causing oil and build-up. The formula includes green tea, which, according to dermatologist Dr. David E. Bank, is one of the "most potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatories, so it's going to help get rid of redness, inflammation, rosacea, acne, and sun damage."

clean and clear acne product

Clean & Clear Acne Triple Clear Cleanser

Clean & Clear's Triple Clear Cleanser tackles in acne in 3 different ways--it de-clogs pores, treats and soothes blemishes with a cooling formula, and helps prevent future blemishes. The formula includes salicylic acid to treat acne and aloe to soothe inflamed skin. "Aloe vera has a steroid-like calming action on the red and irritated skin," dermatologist Dr. Surbhi says.
