Melaleuca (Tea Tree)
Pimples suck, and unfortunately, I think salicylic-acid-based blemish creams smell weird plus dry out my skin. So, alternatively, I dot tea tree oil on my zits (both face and body) to essentially cleanse the area. I also have a glass roll-on bottle of HD Clear ($28), which, in addition to melaleuca, has black cumin seed and ho wood leaf oils to help target breakouts. This stuff smells so good and woody, I often wear it as deodorant and perfume too. I get compliments all the time, and the comforting scent makes me feel really good (no matter how big the pimple is on my face).
