I Haven't Had a Single Spot Since Using This Cleanser

I'd like to say that I'm one of those people that don't get upset over a spot (or multiple spots), but I'm not. And for about six to nine months, I suffered daily with a case of hormonal acne that quite literally wouldn't budge. No matter what products I used, no matter how little makeup I wore, no matter how much I tried to relax and not stress, the spots stayed firmly on my chin and jaw area, and it made me miserable.

Acne isn't a flaw, and it isn't something we should feel like we have to hide. However, there's no shame in admitting it's something that can get us down, and nine times out of 10, getting down about it only causes us and our skin to stress more. Six months into my experience with hormonal acne, I honestly thought this was just how my skin would be forever. Until I had a life-changing facial and switched my cleanser up.
