Over the past few years I’ve tried just about every acne product that’s come across my desk. I’ve slathered on countless face masks, serums, and spot treatments in an attempt to get my adult hormonal acne under control. Most of the products did nothing to the massive red lumps along my jawline, but a few did considerably shrink them down to size.
The latter group of products left me impressed. At least, I thought they did until I tried Allies of Skin Promise Keeper Blemish Facial ($120; Net-a-porter.com). I’ll admit I was skeptical when this little guy landed in my hands, but was open-minded about giving it a shot because a huge, red, puffy whitehead had popped up on my cheek that morning.
