Hear me out: I have tried SO many pimple patches, and these are the ones I find myself going back to time and time again because they truly work. Just throw it on, and let it work its magic while you sleep. Without fail, every time I use this, it visibly shrinks any zit I have overnight.

Promising review: "I never write Amazon reviews. I order way too much from Amazon so I never take the time to write anything. These however are awesome! They work exactly as they say they do and can make a HUGE difference in the size/inflammation overnight. I’m so glad I bought these and they will definitely be something I keep stocked. Wish I would’ve had these a long time ago... they make such a difference in how quickly the acne goes down." —A G

Price: $10.77 for 36 patches

Truthfully, I've struggled with KP for such a long time, and this product is literally the only thing that has ever worked for me. I use it once weekly and have already seen such a big difference in the bumps on my arms. I apply just a pea-sized amount in the shower, rinse it off, and follow it with a lather of a thick moisturizer when I come out.

Promising review: "I had really bad KP and bumps all over my arms and body. I use this once or twice a week in the shower and after 2–3 uses I have seen a HUGE difference. My arms are almost clear!!" —Dina A.

Price: $10.80+ (available in five sizes)

Promising review: "I took a chance and splurged a bit on this and I am HOOKED. LOVE it. It smells amazing, and a little goes a long way. I use it only on my neck, arms, and chest and have already noticed a difference in the elasticity of my skin. It also really gives my skin a nice glow when I am tan. Totally recommend it, and I will replenish when mine is gone. The jar is huge and will probably last several months. When you spend $10+ on body lotion per month, the $45 for this cream is well worth it." —Ellie6613

Price: $22+ (available in two sizes)

Promising review: "I am obsessed with this product! It took 2–3 tries, but now I apply it like a pro. No streaks or unnatural color. I know it says 1-hour tan, but I leave it on overnight and rinse it off in the morning, and I am left with a beautiful color. Honestly, the color lasts me around a week. I was hesitant it was going to be too dark, but not at all. Looks like how I would normally look if I spent a week at the beach. And I love the price of course." —AnaMaria

Price: $9.97

Promising review: "I'm so glad I bought this stuff! I have tried EVERYTHING for my acne-prone skin and nothing seemed to work. I always had great skin, until I hit my mid-twenties and started getting big painful acne all over and blackheads on my nose and T-zone. This stuff helped so much! I noticed a huge difference within the first couple of weeks. A little bit goes a LONG way and only apply once a day, applying more often than that won't be any more effective. Start using every other day (or a couple times a week if your skin is more sensitive or dry) and work your way up to every day. You have to stay consistent with this stuff for it to really work. I apply it every night after I cleanse and I never use toner before or after applying this product because it irritates my skin. Make sure you moisturize well after using this product and always wear sunscreen while using this product. I'm not sure how it would be for someone with sensitive skin, so I would do a small test area first!" —Sarah

Price: $14.37+ (available in five sizes and two styles)

Promising review: "I have every skin issue you can think of. Rosacea, acne (hormonal, cystic, whiteheads, blackheads), dehydration, excessive oiliness, redness, all of it. I’ve spent probably thousands on a multitude of different products, trying to find one that would at least make a dent. I’ve had many procedures, many trips to the dermatologist. Nothing I’ve ever used, nothing I’ve ever done, has made such a profound difference in the appearance of my skin. Having rosacea, my face often felt hot, bumpy, and burned. While my complexion is naturally fair and pink, this has seriously covered all my bases in a gentle and effective way. I’ve been trying to turn my skin around for YEARS! This was the product that did it. If I could give it 100 stars, I would. It has seriously changed my life!" —hc

Price: $12.35+ (available in two sizes)

Promising review: "A great makeup remover! This is a drugstore must have product — it’s mentioned all over. No alcohol or fragrance in the ingredients which was the important thing to me, as I use this frequently to remove mascara and eyebrow makeup. It does a good job of removing what you need before washing your face. I will be buying the same product but different Micellar (they have three types) that removes waterproof mascara better. I recommend getting this and using it as a two-step in your routine." —Alize V-D

Price: $8.12

Promising review: "I really like this stuff. I'm not sure how well it works on past stretch marks, but it works wonders on scars. I got bit by a dog last summer and nothing was working to get rid of the scar. I also had a scar from a scratch on my knee, as well as chicken pock scars, and scars from a wrist surgery. This oil seems to be fading them all! I put it on once a day after the shower (if that), and I've noticed the progress, even without photos. I also think that it helps to spread/lengthen the life of other lotions as well (given that it is an oil, if you put lotion on your legs, less will go longer than without the oil), so it helps you save money in the lotion department. First pictures are when I first got bit, second is when I was trying products to fade the mark, and last is now." —Seana

Price: $18.50

Promising review: "All I had ever used for chemical exfoliation on my feet was Baby Foot and THIS works the same. It may seem like it’s more on the expensive side but please trust that it’s not as expensive as the real thing but STILL very well worth the money. Just make sure you follow the instructions! If you don’t you won’t get the intended results. This really helps to relieve some of the pressure on my feet and overall make them look great and feel soft." —Jazzmyn

Price: $14.36

Promising review: "I wish I had taken before and after pics to illustrate the difference this product has made. Always a bit of a skeptic, after reading 139K positive reviews, I figured it was worth a try! I have some sun/aging spots on my right cheek mostly, of which I've been fairly self-conscious. I'm in my mid-fifties and these dime-size spots just popped up about four years ago and got more pronounced in the last two years. I started using TruSkin C serum about three months ago and the spots have faded significantly. Also, my skin just looks fresher and slightly brighter. I highly recommend this product to anyone who's considering it." —heather

Price: $17.99

Promising review: "I had a terrible allergic reaction to tea tree oil about two weeks ago. Tiny bumps all over my face along with bunches of breakouts and my normally oily skin was so dry the strongest moisturizers I had wouldn’t keep it moisturized for long. I tried this stuff and OVERNIGHT basically all the bumps and my breakouts are gone. I have incredibly sensitive skin (clearly) and this stuff feels so soothing on my face and leaves it looking bright. I can’t speak more highly of this product. I will probably continue using it as a regular daily moisturizer even after my skin goes back to normal because it feels so smooth and I bet it would make a great base for makeup. HIGHLY recommend to anyone with sensitive, combination skin. And I’m acne-prone and this stuff doesn’t break me out. Holy grail people!" —SH

Price: $15.99

Promising review: "I have been using this cute little octopus to clear the blackheads and acne off of my nose so far it has really worked! I see a huge difference in the clogged pores on my nose and my nose looks better after using this. I will say that it doesn’t get everything, but it does get about 90% of the crud on my nose. I recommend this product and will be purchasing again when needed!" —StevieJay

Price: $12.50

Promising review: "I am very sensitive to scent and this product smells amazing. It has a very refreshing and subtle scent. I started using this product when I was pregnant and looking for safe and easy skincare for my face. I just love how easy it is and how effective it is. Even for those first few months where I barely slept, I was able to stick to the skincare." —Asami N. Jones

Price: $13.96

Promising review: "This is such a great product! It takes my makeup off with ease, even my waterproof mascara, without having to rub my eyelids. It's like it melts the makeup away. It's kinda satisfying to see how easy it comes off. It melts easily when you rub a little in your hands before you put it on your face. I bought this in January, it's now June, and I've only used maybe 1/4 of the container, a little goes a long way. Also, if you like the smell of oranges, then you'll love this. I will definitely be buying more." —Tracy

Price: $14.24

Promising review: "I've tried so many sunscreens, this one is by far the best. It goes on very smoothly, has a light milky texture, and absorbs into the skin quickly while leaving no white cast. It doesn't break me out or make me look oily and definitely doesn't burn my eyes. It leaves your skin a bit glowy. This is going to be a staple for my skincare routine." —Amazon Customer

Price: $19.90

Promising review: "I love this acne oil. I wanted a product to target zits and pesky acne that would pop up. Since I have started using this oil, my skin has been clear and breakout free! I love the smell and moisturizing effect. I layer after cleanser, vitamin C oil, then this oil, then my moisturizer. I say I use this product about 3-4 times a week. Would highly recommend it!!" —Susan A

Price: $27.95

Promising review: "I am not one to write reviews for products that I order but I often find myself reading reviews from other customers. This time I was so pleasantly surprised that I needed to write a review. Don’t give it a second thought and purchase this magical eye cream. The results are amazing and it lasts a long time, you get your money's worth." —JCA

Price: $13.49

Promising review: "This stuff is pretty great. The foaming is super fun. It tickles a little for a second but not for long. I definitely noticed cleaner pores after use. Even helped bring a tiny pimple to the surface that I was dying to get rid of. Highly recommend." —Joanna Y.

Price: $9.10

Promising review: "I have eczema around my eyes and they are always red, dry, flaky, and puffy. This is the first product that I have tried that has healed my eyes! In less than one week my eyes were completely transformed! I would give this more than 5 stars if I could!!!!" —amy

Price: $9.99

Promising review: "This mask goes on nicely, you mix the powder and oil, and becomes very hard. It feels amazing. When you wash it off it leaves your skin tight and moist. It suggests using twice a week and that is spot on. I love this mask. I don't know why they call it Zombie, I would call it FanFreakinglabulous." —Aviva Baker

Price: $23.70 (available in two sizes)

Promising review: "I’m not posting a before and after because woof. But please, if you can trust a stranger on anything, trust me on this one. This product is amazing. I have had embarrassing calluses on my heels and sides of my feet for so long. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on pedicures and NOTHING works like this product. It was so easy. I was really skeptical because it didn’t have a strong odor or anything. When I say the calluses came off, baby, they came off. My feet could rival a toddler’s foot now in softness. 100000% recommend." —Okiemama

Price: $14.24

Promising review: "I could honestly go on and on about how great this product is! I was scared to try it at first because I have rosacea and I didn’t know how it would affect it but it is so wonderful for sensitive skin. It’s also true to the name of pore control. I break out on my chin every month around my period and I haven’t in four months since I started using it. Highly recommend using!" —Gabrielle Vega

Price: $7.30

Promising review: "I say this stuff is the truth. For my girlies who worry with ingrown, discoloration, and more, this stuff is the holy grail of body hair maintenance. I loved it!" —hayle

Price: $18.99 (available in two sizes)

Promising review: "I’ve tried a lot of sunscreen and primers over the last year. I mean A LOT. My skin is super sensitive, acne prone, and prone to dry and redness. (Complicated I know.) This stuff doesn’t feel heavy, moisturizes really well while not feeling like I’ll break out later. It protected my skin from sunburn during six hours at Six Flags. I don’t wear a ton of makeup but the foundation and bronzer I wore didn’t budge or crease. It makes your skin glow like crazy which alone is a bit much for me but under some foundation, it looks amazing! Def worth the buy and will buy again." —H. E. Adams

Price: $18

Promising review: "I've been searching for a good body scrub to get rid of dead skin cells and this works! I only use a quarter size every shower, that's all you'll need. My skin is sooooo soft afterward. I hope this company never discontinues!" —Dawn

Price: $7.54 (available in two sizes and six flavors)

Promising review: "I will definitely be investing in more of these masks. I was a bit skeptical to try a mask for the butt lol, but I actually felt it work! I felt the firmness and detox! I would recommend trying it, but I will be purchasing more for sure." —Lauren

Price: $10.99

Promising review: "Took this to a USMC training event where it averages 105 degrees every day with extreme UV rays. This stick held up really well, never melted, applied easily, and even smells really good. It’s super easy to throw in your pack or pocket. Ended up lasting me for another year and a half just using it on trips." –Jenna Pillichody

Price: $10.44

Promising review: "My dermatologist has recommended this moisturizer for years but I put off buying it because it is pricey. Instead, I kept trying other popular moisturizers, but they weren't effective in relieving the dry skin I have on my legs. Finally bought this and now I am a believer. It is effective and a little goes a long way, so even though a tub this is pricey, it lasts a long time." —J Davis

Price: $15.49+ (available in three sizes)

Promising review: "I have only been using this product for a few days and my feet look sooo much better. I had been dealing with extremely dry and cracked heels for years. I've been too embarrassed to wear sandals and shoes where my heels would be out. In just a few days my feet are moisturized and I do not have any spots of calloused skin. A small amount goes a long way, so I'm sure it's going to last for a while. I wish I had found this product sooner. BUY IT!" —S.W.

Price: $15.99

Promising review: "I have been struggling with butt acne since puberty, so going on nearly 10 years now. I get it all over my booty, and they range from very large and painful pimples to small itchy ones. I have tried so many things from antibiotics to special washes and lotions, but nothing ever worked. I found this and read the reviews and found there were many girls struggling like me, so I decided to try it out. I’ve only been using it for about a week, in the morning and at night and I already see so much improvement. It’s not completely gone yet, but it is definitely soooo much better. I think it’s definitely worth the money and I will continue to purchase!" —Leah hurtado

Price: $24.99

Promising review: "My ONLY regret is finding this product sooooo late in life! UGH. I love everything about it — the texture, the smell is wonderful, and how light yet powerful it is as a moisturizer. Works so, so, so well. WOW." —Ishamisha

Price: $14.40

Promising review: "I’ve been trying to reduce my under-eye puffiness for years and creams just aren’t doing it. This is the first time I’ve tried this type of application. They are a little weird at first but go one easy with the simple-to-follow instructions on the box. I used the patches three times, every other day, and by the morning after the third application, I actually did see a difference! This was a surprise because I work the night shift and currently have a sinus infection so I didn’t expect an outcome so soon! They have a very light, pleasant smell and feel cool to the touch at application. I appreciate the suggestion to lie down for 20 minutes as it requires me to take a break from all distractions. The skin under my eyes feels soft, taught, and looks healthy with a slight glow. There is the slightest tingle while on but doing the allergy test first proved that this is not a problem. I have already recommended this to a friend and am excited to see continued improvements using the remainder of the package. Most likely, I will reorder this for upkeep." —Sarah Rosenzweig

Price: $12.47

Promising review: "I love to take this product with me when I travel. It is easy to apply without getting my hands messy and is easy to throw in my bag. I tend to burn easily so this is nice to have on hand for reapplying throughout the day." —Jen S

Price: $9.58

Promising review: "When I say that my feet stuck to the sheets and I was embarrassed to wear sandals and get pedicures because of how bad my feet were, I know I needed to find something to help! I’ve tried feet wraps, I’ve tried gel callus remover, pumice stones, etc. This product completely fixed my feet on the first try. I was blown away by the amount of buildup it took off. And my feet feel like a newborn. They are so soft and I cannot stop touching them! BUY IT, you will not regret it!" —Baby Feet

Price: $9.99

Promising review: "I burn very easily so I try to stay out of the sun or wear tons of sunblock so on those days when I still manage to get burned, this has been the absolute best for pain relief. I’ve used it for years. Instead of trying to drive around to see which store carries it, Amazon has made it easy. I’ve tried other things that are too greasy, sticky or just don’t work. This stuff relieves the pain, smells nice and it turns to tan rather quickly skipping the peeling part. I swear by this stuff." —Danielle K. Schmidt

Price: $9.49

Promising review: "I luv, luv, luv this mitt. It is embarrassing to admit, but the first use sloughed off SO much dead skin. I felt 5 pounds lighter after I got done. Haha. Every shower I exfoliate to some degree, more than I should, as I am always moisturizing, but this mitt got sooooo much more dead skin off than even when I do a heavy exfoliation. WOW! This really does what it says it will do. The texture is like a very fine sandpaper. I do recommend to not go too crazy with it, as you can rub yourself raw, especially for you sensitive skin types. Your skin will look and feel better after the first use. Definitely would recommend. Would make great beauty tuck-in gifts too." —Kennedy Collins

Price: $6.99

Promising review: "I love all of the Korean skin products, but this is a regular part of my routine skincare. It’s so nice and refreshing on your skin. It makes my skin so supple and it gives it a radiant glow afterwards. I love to use this along with the serum. It does wonders and it works together very well." –Andrea

Price: $20
