Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
Cetaphil is a drugstore gem at its finest. Dermatologists swear by this easy to find face wash, which won’t break the bank. It’s also so amazingly gentle that it won’t leave your skin feeling dried out. This is one of those amazing products that you start using in high school and stick with for life.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash

This salicylic acid gel is still gentle, and it’s full of aloe and chamomile so that it soothes skin even though it’s fighting acne. It speeds up your recovery time from breakouts without drying out your skin. There’s a reason why young women and even 30-something year-olds who are still prone to breakouts love this product. It works! The 2% salicylic acid content is the strongest dose allowed for over-the-counter products.

St. Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub
We love a fancy exfoliator as much as the next girl, but St. Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub is hands-down one of the best drugstore gems on the planet. This cleanser is strong enough to fight acne but gentle enough to use every day. It also gently exfoliates the skin, which helps get rid of dirt build up before it even starts.
