2. Escents PH Zit Be Gone Roll-On, P300

Thankfully, that isn’t the case with this serum from Escents PH. Packaged in a handy, roll-on tube, this blend of witch hazel, tea tree, bergamot, and lavender essential oils makes it easier than ever to glide wherever, whenever.

3. Skin Revolution Tea Tree Acne Spot Oil (10ml), now on sale at P325 (limited time only)
If you’re in need of a more natural, go-to remedy for acne, tea tree oil is a good place to start. Popular for its numerous healing properties, it’s potent enough to act like benzoyl peroxide to calm blemished skin and work overnight. There’s no need to dilute this blend from Skin Revolution, though! It’s made ready-to-use so you can apply this on without the fuss.

4. Skinlush Guava Antibacterial Cream, P150
Some people just aren’t on board with the stinging sensation that comes with most spot treatments. Who can blame them? It can irritate skin, leave dry patches, and feel uncomfortable. So if you’re more cautious, we highly recommend trying out an antioxidant-rich antibacterial cream. This one from Skinlush has guava extract that fortifies the formula with vitamins A, B, and C to both clean and nourish pimply, irritated skin. Sure, the results might not be as immediate as overnight, but in 2-3 days there’ll be a noticeable difference. Trust the process!

Need the experts to take over? Try this anti-acne gel from the No. 1 leading, medical, aesthetic clinic in the Philippines. It’s smartly designed to heal breakouts with a hypoallergenic formula that shrinks pimples and lightens dark spots—all without causing redness or peeling! We’re told this works best for those with mild to moderate acne. You can even give this 3-step kit a whirl for better results!

6. Leiania House of Beauty Zit Spot Tx, P160
Not all spot treatments are made equally, and it’s clearly seen in this anti-acne solution from Leiania House of Beauty. Made with tea tree oil, azelaic acid, and niacinamide, this anti-inflammatory trio works twice as hard not only to heal and calm pimply skin, but also to decongest pores and refine rough skin texture. Best of all, it’s encased in a nifty roll-on tube so you can carry this with you on-the-go.

8. Skin Genie Pimple and Acne Pad (36 pcs.), P300
And if all else fails, let hydrocolloid stickers come to the rescue. Made similarly to Cosrx’s famous Acne Master Patch, this set from Skin Genie performs just as good but with a thinner film. In other words, it still gets the job done with the same gunk-absorbing power and protection against bacteria. All you gotta do is slap ‘em on!
