11 Best New Skincare Products for Oily and Acne-Prone Skin.

Best Serum for Oily and Acne-Prone Skin: Sailor by Captain Blankenship X Marks the Spot Serum

This Captain Blankenship serum has a lot of things you might recognize in a good toner, like witch hazel and white willow bark extract (these are great for reducing inflammation and preventing blemishes). As a bonus, it also contains a range of essential oils to keep your skin hydrated, and our testers loved that you can use its rollerball tip as a spot treatment. See the full ingredient list here.

Bonus Points, Per the Experts: This serum contains willow bark extract, which is a natural source of salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is a BHA, which our dermatologist experts noted as a good ingredient to have in a serum if you've got oily- or acne-prone skin.

One Tester Said: “I've been using this as a spot treatment on trouble areas, and have seen a reduction in redness after a couple hours of application. It's nice having a spot treatment that can be worn all day and not a pasty-white night cream situation that means you're spending all night in your apartment. I also love that this product isn't super drying—I'm guessing this is thanks to the aloe vera base. This one is definitely worth keeping in my arsenal.”
