Cleansers and retinol have the reputation of stopping zits in their tracks. However, No. 7’s new acne treatment is a drugstore option that can help you banish blemishes and achieve your personal skin care goals.

Salicylic acid is one ingredient you’ll find in lots of cleansers. Why? It’s popular for its acne-fighting abilities. Not only does No. 7’s new leave-on treatment include 2 percent of this holy grail ingredient, but there’s also kaolin clay to reduce oil in the skin and bisabolol and licorice for their soothing properties. Designed to be used at night, the No. 7 acne treatment effectively fights blemishes while you sleep.

If you have sensitive skin and experience frequent breakouts, you will love how gentle this spot treatment is. It’s suitable for all skin types, and for those who experience blemishes often or just every now and again, this gem unclogs pores to prevent new ones from seeping through.

How use it?

When using the No. 7 acne treatment with your other skin care products, apply the acne treatment after your cleanser in the necessary areas. Then, follow up with your other serums and moisturizer. Be sure to wash it off in the morning.
