AS we’re sure anyone who has ever struggled with spots will agree, it can be tempting to splash out on skincare in the hopes that it’ll sort them out.
That said, good skincare doesn’t have to cost a small fortune – as acne sufferers are raving about a £9 cleanser which they claimed got rid of their spots for the first time in YEARS.

At the end of last year, TikTok user Anna-Marie shared a video documenting her cystic acne over the past decade.
In a viral video, Anna-Marie explained how she’d spend “thousands on doctors, fancy washes and painful treatments” to treat her severe acne – which left her depressed and anxious.
Having used the gentle cleanser twice a day for a few weeks, Anna-Marie was stunned to see her spots start to clear up and says it’s the “best” product she’s ever used.

She said: “I start off with the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser which is really good for dry skin.”
Maria then followed her cleanse with a glycolic acid toner from The Ordinary, some hyaluronic acid and Cetaphil cream to lock in moisture.
