If you’re like us, you were hoping pimples and zits would be nothing more than a humbling but faded teenage memory by now. Alas, once in a while breakouts still happen. When the occasional zit pops up, there are plenty of acne spot treatments available. But which one is right for you?
Of course, regular cleaning, deep-cleaning, masks—these things are all beneficial. But if you don’t have the time or inclination to go through all that, try one of these spot treatments instead.

Likewise, just because one medication works for one guy doesn’t mean it’s going to work for the next.

We checked out the options, and found a bunch of products with mostly positive reviews and recommendations by real users on Amazon. They’re listed below.
