From my personal experience, I've always known that finding a solution for acne comes with a hefty price tag. I believe many people with acne-prone skin share this view. Unless you can afford expensive dermatologists and their recommended products, it feels like there's no hope. However, things have changed. Nowadays, it's possible to build an effective skincare routine on a budget. Affordable skincare options have improved tremendously, addressing specific concerns such as acne. Enter CeraVe's blemish control range, offering an affordable answer to tackling blemishes and balancing acne-prone skin.

CeraVe has made a name for itself with its hydrating cleansers and barrier-boosting moisturizers. It has become one of the favorite budget skincare brands, even gaining popularity on TikTok with hundreds of viral videos praising its products. However, I've always viewed CeraVe as a brand more suitable for those in need of moisture and hydration, rather than targeting specific skin issues. So, when I discovered that they have a range specifically designed for acne, I knew I had to try it out.

How Much Are the Products and Where Can I Buy Them?

The cleanser and targeted spot treatment cost £10.50 and £12.50 respectively. Keep an eye out for sales at Boots, as you may be able to purchase them at a reduced price. So, for just over £20, you can tackle blemishes and acne effectively.

In terms of ingredients, these products differ from CeraVe's already-famous Salicylic Acid Cleanser. In addition to Salicylic Acid (a BHA), they also contain a spot-fighting concoction of AHAs (Glycolic and Lactic acid), as well as Hectorite clay and Niacinamide. While the AHAs work to improve the overall condition of the skin and target clogged pores that lead to spots, niacinamide soothes and calms the skin, and the clay absorbs excess sebum and oil. Together, they form the ultimate acne-beating trifecta.

What sets this range apart is not only its affordability but also its gentle formulation. The products are formulated with emollients, such as ceramides and anti-inflammatory ingredients, to maintain the skin's moisture barrier, keeping it hydrated and free from irritation.

This is something that Eliza's beauty Content Creator Hannah can confirm: "I really liked the OG salicylic cleanser but preferred the consistency of the blemish version," she says. "It didn't dry out my skin but did leave it feeling like it had washed away any pollution/debris from the day."

Hannah also highly rates the blemish gel, calling it "one of the best I've tried." She shares her personal experience, "I had two spots coming up under my skin and applied this that night, the next morning they'd already started to retreat, and after another nightly application, they were almost completely gone."

The blemish gel has a super lightweight gel texture that feels comfortable on spots, even the painful ones. It works best overnight, making it ideal for surprise spots. On the other hand, the cleanser is a fantastic option for long-term skin maintenance.

When and Where is the CeraVe Blemish Control Range Available to Buy?

The CeraVe Blemish Control Cleanser and Spot Treatment are available to purchase at all your favorite beauty destinations, including Boots, Cult Beauty, and Lookfantastic.

Now, you don't have to break the bank to fight acne. Experience the affordable and effective CeraVe Blemish Control Range, and say goodbye to blemishes without compromising your budget or the health of your skin.
