Zoella is known for her flawless, ever-youthful skin, and we are totally jealous. However, she recently revealed that she does indeed suffer from spots, just like everyone else. Speaking in one of her YouTube videos, she told her 12 million subscribers that that her skin in actual fact can be problematic. Bravely going bare-faced, she showed her fans how she covers her skin and credited a particular product for zapping nasties on her face that erupt on occasions. The Effaclar Duo + by La Roche Posay is a formula she can't live without, and you can buy the £16 cream for Boots. Result! Speaking about the wonder product, the YouTube sensation said: "Honestly, I don’t ever not use this. I just put it on all my problem areas which include my chin and around my nose."

The cream is a bit of a cult product in the beauty world, with bloggers and beauty editors frequently praising it. The formula is a non-sticky liquid, which is quite unique in its texture, as it melts into your skin and instantly mattifies your skins surface.

It is seen as a corrector – so ideal if you suffer from blemishes, as it blurs them, making your entire face look clearer. What's more, it promises to transform your skin in just 4 weeks – so great to use if you have an event you want to look particularly fresh for.

The sister of new Strictly Come Dancing contestant Joe Sugg has also credited a few makeup favourites that help her disguise her spots too. On her list is Kate Von D's Lock it foundation – a full covering liquid offering that has been compared to Estee Lauder's iconic Double Wear, due to its pigmented formula. Priced at £27, it is waterproof, fade-proof and comes in a whopping 30 different shades, so it's easy to colour match.
