Elizabeth Grant Wonder Effect SOS Spot Stick - $25 - a powerful remedy for stubborn acne formulated with tea tree oil to be non-irritating, while salicylic acid and glycolic acid band together to deeply penetrate through oily pores and deliver product straight to the source - skin is gently exfoliated allowing the tea tree oil to go to work, unclogging pores, fighting off bacteria, healing reddened skin and helping to prevent future breakouts. It comes in a convenient stick format with a green tint to help cover redness - I would recommend adding a touch of concealer or powder on top though, at certain angles it still looks green - which I guess is a look...
