Salicylic Acid Masque VS Serum

Newbie here!!

I have been using the Balance set from The Ordinary, including the Salicylic Acid Masque 1-2x a week. As I am getting to know more about The Ordinary products I was curious about the benefits of using the Salicylic Acid Masque a couple times a week instead of using the serum once a day? Or is there a benefit to using both formulations on alternating days? 
My skin has improved so much but I’m still struggling with congestion (mostly tiny whiteheads and blackheads) in my T-zone so hopefully there is something I can add to my regimen to continue the progress! 
Thank you in advance for any input/suggestions!

@MrsLuk you're better off with a leave on salicylic acid product daily.
