So you've tried a million products to minimize the appearance of clogged poresexfoliators, serums, creams, masks, you name it—and nothing has worked. Don't fret just yet, because viral beauty brand Peace Out just launched a product that may solve your problem. Before we drop the mic over the fact that it only costs $24 (!), you should know that the new Pore Perfecting Stick is going gangbusters, racking up thousands of views on TikTok and already selling out at Sephora.

Its rock star formula, which seems to do a good job of smoothing skin and clearing pores, is mostly to thank. In addition to mushroom extract, an ingredient featured in the brand's OG Instant Pore Perfector serum (which we tried and loved), the new stick formula includes a blend of kaolin clay, exfoliating acids and fruit extracts, which the brand claims work together to provide an even-looking complexion.

For starters, the gentle exfoliant is in stick form, which makes it incredibly easy to use. All you have to do is gently swipe it over clogged areas, from your forehead and nose to your cheeks and chin (or all over the face if you desire). Then leave it on for ten to 15 minutes, two to three times a week, to help treat, target and cleanse pesky blackheads, oil and buildup from your pores. In other words, this dual-purpose stick is designed to do it all, and provide results. Just see the TikTok below!

While it's meant to work on all skin types, those with combination skin may find it especially easy to apply to their T-zone (the commonly oily area spanning the forehead down to the nose and chin), since you can just swipe it on exactly where you need it. No matter their skin type, though, *100 percent* of users from the brand's consumer study claimed that it helped exfoliate and purify the skin without irritation in just one week. Not to mention, 97 percent of participants said it helped prevent blackheads and breakouts (good news if you're hoping to get ahead of those skin concerns).

But here's why one buyer is obsessed: "The instant benefit I saw was that my acne scars started to fade. The product's texture is smooth and went on so easy on my skin." So it helps to minimize pores *and* acne scars? Um, that's all we've ever wanted.

The bonus is that the product is cruelty-, gluten-, silicone-, paraben-, phthalate-, sulfate- and fragrance-free to boot if you're all about clean beauty. We certainly are, which is why we're scooping up a stick (or two) as we speak. Try it for yourself to see what all the hype is about.
