What’s the Best Acne Face Wash? These 7 Will Help Give Blemishes the Boot

PureWow Logo By letters@purewow.com (Sarah Stiefvater) of PureWow | Slide 1 of 7: Best Overall   Value: 20/20 Functionality:19/20 Ease of Use:19/20 Aesthetics: 18/20 Results:19/20 TOTAL: 95/100   The best overall acne face wash option is from the good old drugstore? Yep. Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne has been so popular for so long (and dermatologist recommended) for good reason: It works, and it costs less than a fancy salad. Formulated with 2 percent salicylic acid, it’s meant to gently—but thoroughly—clean pores for clearer skin. Even though it’s oil-free, it won’t cause over-drying or irritation, which we’ve found with some oil-free anti-acne cleansers. No frills, for sure, but as long as it gets the job done and leaves us with a clearer complexion than the one we started with, that’s all we need. Buy it ($10)
