What: Neutrogena Oil-Free Anti-Acne Moisturizer, $4.54
Why: One would assume after a quarter-century of existence, that blemishes would be a thing of the past – something you'd leave behind in adolescence along with braces, training bras, and virginity. But once in a while, under times of intense stress (or when you-know-what comes to visit) my skin tends to misbehave. Normally I am randomly blessed with a decent complexion – which I have no business having, seeing as how I don't drink enough water, don't take my vitamins, abhor fruits and vegetables, and partake too heartily in the weekend cocktail. But I mention this not to make enemies, but rather to drive home the benefits of my all-time favorite little life-saving product. Neutrogena's Oil-Free Anti-Acne Moisturizer is perfect for skin that needs a little help keeping blemishes under control. The low concentration of salicylic acid is not too intense, so it won't dry out your skin. I have been a fan of this product for years now due to its mild blemish fighting power combined with soothing moisturizing benefits. And I love that since it's actually a moisturizer, there's no extra cream I have to apply after washing my face. So when my job, my social life, or my hormones have me under the gun, Neutrogena is there to keep my skin from giving me away – and for that I will remain a very loyal customer.
