Hmmm...I poked around on some on-line UK chemists and it looks rather like benzoyl-peroxide may not be available over-the-counter in your country. Nobody there seems to sell a product that has any in it. AAaack! Found something!

Scroll down until you see a product called "Oxy On The Spot". It's described as having 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide. This might be just the ticket for you.

As for cleansers, I should think you could find that over the counter.

And the same would hold true for moisturizers.

I bet that you could get some moisturizer and a cleanser at that website as well, and avail yourself of their free shipping offer on anything over 16 pounds. (sorry, I don't have a British pound symbol on my keyboard!)

For cleansers and moisturizers, I recommend that you look for something NON-COMEDOGENIC. How can you tell, you ask? If it doesn't specifically say, then look the products up on the handy-dandy list provided here:

Good luck, and if you find anything, drop us and Dan a line. Maybe Dan will consider making a list for others in the world who also suffer from acne.

Oh, and remember, Google is your FRIEND! I did some searches on Google using the search term "acne UK" and found a bunch of stuff, which led me to that BlushingBuyer website. (Although I'm not sure about the "saucy gifts and sexy fun" section they have. I modestly averted my eyes and ignored that part.)

EDITED TO ADD:

Ooops, here I am prattling on about UK druggists, and there's a perfectly excellent part of this board that's totally dedicated to this topic:
