Way back in the year of our Lord 2005, the greatest contribution ever gifted to the world was the magical Tide To Go Stain Remover Pen. The invention was simplistically genius; it erased those inevitable clothing stains you acquire on the go from food, ink, wine, etc., with the swipe of a pen.

Now, thanks to one of the internet's most beloved beauty brands, a similar product exists — for your face.

Meet Glossier's Zit Stick, an otherworldly pink pen that contains a bunch of tried-and-true acne-fighting ingredients in one concentrated on-the-go formula.

The formula contains 5 percent benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil, and capryloyl salicylic acid, a considerably gentler derivative of the common pimple-erasing ingredient salicylic acid.

It also includes calming ingredients such as glycerin and niacinamide.

Its only true catch is that you will definitely need to amp up your sunscreen intake while using it.

You should be wearing sunscreen on your face all the time, but the Zit Stick's benzoyl peroxide can make your skin particularly sensitive to the sun.

Here's how it works: When you see a pimple sprouting, simply twist the pen until you hear that satisfying click and glide the antimicrobial, steel-tip applicator over it up to three times a day.

Those little rollerballs on the end will ensure the formula gets released in a thin, transparent layer to avoid ruining your makeup.

You can apply it underneath or on top of your makeup; that's why it's so ideal for on-the-go spot treatment.

Glossier wrote in a press release that it's "a portable, fast-acting spot treatment you can wear everywhere and apply anytime."

The Zit Stick also claims it can "start to heal pimples in just three hours while still being nice to your skin."

THREE HOURS? Seems like a miracle solution, but we'll have to try it for ourselves.

Considering Glossier's brand motto is "skin first, makeup second," it makes perfect sense it would venture into the realm of zit zapping.

TBH, we're surprised the Zit Stick didn't happen sooner.

And if you're wondering, "What the hell is my dermatologist going to think of this?" worry not; doctors seem to approve of the fast-acting formula. 

Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital, says the Zit Stick's ingredients should calm irritation and redness without danger.

"While benzoyl peroxide is effective in treating all types of acne, it is my go-to ingredient for red, angry pimples," Zeichner told TZR

"It works by lowering levels of acne-causing bacteria in the follicles, calming inflammation."

Oh, and it's only $14! If the Zit Stick is anything like Glossier's other beloved products, then it's surely a steal for that price.

Just leave it Glossier, I guess.
