The Peace Out Blemish Balm, known to wipe out maskne in mere days, is now 18% off at Sephora. Writer Chloe Anello first told us about this gritty cleansing balm’s acne fighting prowess a few months ago: “After washing it off that first time, my skin felt neither stripped nor squeaky clean,” she says. “It instead felt sort of plump, which I suspected was from the hyaluronic acid quenching my dry cheeks as the balm’s other ingredients got to work on my acne-riddled T-zone.” It’s formulated with niacinamide, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycerin too, which Anello says treats skin with dry and oily spots, making it the perfect recipe for her combination skin. While the results weren’t instant, she says, “Six days later, after using the balm once a day at night, there was no trace of my maskne.”

Clearer skin in just a week is priceless, but now at $18 (down from $22) this balm is a must-buy. (Plus, there’s free shipping with code FREESHIP.) We don’t know how long this sale will last, so act fast.
