As much as we’d love to slap on a pimple patch over every blemish we come across, sometimes a quick fix isn’t always the solution. (Ask anyone with acne-prone skin and they’d have to agree!) But don’t lose hope—there are other miracle-workers out there that can kick your breakouts to the curb. And lucky for you, we hear all about them because they’re raved about by our customers.

So if you’re curious, we’ve rounded together a couple of 5-star reviews that might just convince you of their power. And, not to spoil, but some of these also smoothen out texture, banish redness, and fade away scars! How’s that for damage control? See them all, below.

By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water, now on sale at P1,000 (limited time only)
“This has definitely helped my skin texture improve. I’ve been using it every other day, in the nighttime. It’s really helped with flattening the bumps on my forehead and the milia near my eyes. I’m so glad that I bought this after reading and watching reviews on various blogs and on YouTube. This is definitely something that I will repurchase after I’ve finished my bottle!! Holy grail status for me now!” - Kelly, 24, Combination skin

ACWELL Licorice Balancing Toner, now on sale at 792 (limited time only)
“I’ve been using so many products like COSRX, Yves Rocher, Dear Klairs, Kiehl’s and Beauty Water, but none of them work on my face. This one really changed my life. I’ve been using this toner for a month and no joke, my skin got glossy and smooth. The redness, the allergy, the small bumps on my face really disappeared and I can’t believe it. I’m still using it every night. My skin got better and my scars are starting to disappear. I love this product so much and it really works on my skin type.” - Evianne, 25, Oily skin

V&M Naturals Karanja Oil (30ml), now on sale at P1,190 (limited time only)
“I’ve been using this product for one month and the results are astonishing. I usually have the occasional breakouts on my jaw line area but since I started using this product (together with their Copaiba oil), I noticed a dramatic decrease of pimple growth in that area. In just two weeks! After a month of continuous use, my pimples are now all gone! I just apply two drops every night. It is a bit heavy, but nevertheless I like this product. Will definitely buy again!” - Jhonathan, 27, Oily skin

Wildleaf Hibiscus Face Cream, P990
“I thought this might be too heavy since it has a cream consistency, but surprisingly, it’s lightweight and does its job in moisturizing your face. I’m using this together with their vitamin c and spot treatment and it’s definitely worth the price. Though I still get breakouts due to hormonal imbalance, wildleaf’s products have helped me improve the texture of my skin and minimize hyperpigmentation.” - Fergie, 24, Oily skin

SNAILWHITE CC Cream SPF 50, now on sale at P745 (limited time only)
“This is my first CC cream and I’m really glad I tried it. My face is always oily and most products break me out with big painful zits. This product though didn’t give me pimples and instead made my skin feel smooth. It also helped keep oil at bay, not that much, but I can see and feel the difference. I highly recommend this and will definitely buy again.” - Val, 31, Oily skin

Rorec Yogurt Mask, now on sale at P22 (limited time only)
“Naghahanap ako ng maganda mask para sa akin. Nung una, naghehesitant ako kung bibilhin ko ba yung mask na ito kasi natatakot ako baka magbreakout kasi acne-prone ako, pero I was wrong! This product really works for me. Ang bango pa. Nakatulong din siya para mag dry din yung mga maliliit na pimples ko. Madali din naabsorb ng skin ko and hindi malagkit.” - Gummy, 21, Oily skin

Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF50+ PA++++, P435
“Yep, nothing beats this sunblock according to me :-). I’ve been using this every single day for over 2 years. It’s a holy grail for people with oily skin coz it immediately mattifies upon application. It’s good for sensitive skin and won’t cause breakouts. On top of that is the very high SPF which protects me from burning coz I’m always out on field. MUST TRY!!!” - Bonifacia, 41, Oily skin
