I am the type of person who has a problem with stress breakouts. Before any special occasion, I am guaranteed to wake up with a giant zit on my face. It happened to me right before my wedding day too, Imagine the horror :P. But thankfully, I recently came across a miraculous product that helps me deal with it and the only issue I have is that I regret not having it all these years. Well, better late than never, right, at least now, I get to nudge all you lovelies towards this amazing product so you do not have to face the same regret as I do. This review will be on the Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment.
An effective blemish-banishing acne treatment to fight pimples, zits, and future breakouts. Solutions for acne/blemishes, pores. Kate’s best-selling EradiKate Acne Treatment is specifically formulated with the highest level of sulfur allowed to effectively heal blemishes, reduce acne, and help keep skin free of new breakouts. AHAs are designed to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores while zinc oxide, a natural mineral, provides oil control by absorbing excess sebum production. The result is clear skin that lasts. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
My Experience with Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment:
Packaging and Usage: This product comes in a heavy plastic bottle. The product is divided into 2 layers – a top clear water-like liquid and a pink creamy sediment at the bottom. To use, you have to dip a q-tip straight through the top layer till it touched the bottom pink layer, remove q tip and dab on the desired area. This is a spot treatment hence you only apply it where needed. This can be used on emerged pimples, pimples with visible white head or pimples still under the skin.
Effectiveness: I use this product overnight dabbed onto areas I have a pimple. It dried crusty on the area within a few minutes hence unlike a cream it does not smear onto my pillows, but it will flake off. This can be used 2-3 times a day but since it is not a pretty sight to roam around with pink dots over your face, I only use it before bed. This works great by absorbing any excess oil and making the bacteria festering around that area uninhabitable. It literally speeds up the process of my pimple drying out to couple of days which otherwise could have taken a week or more to emerge, heal and required a lot of concealer cake up.
It does not sting my skin and also calms any redness which may occur due to flare ups. It does cause some drying and flaking of skin, but since it is only applied in a small area, you can address the issue with a moisturizer.
My husband who also gets his share of breakouts also swears by this product and gives his stamp of approval. It is not an uncommon sight in our household for me and hubby to both be roaming around with this product on our faces. (LOL Marriage goals ! , I’d say so 😛 )
Fragrance: It does have a strong sulphuric scent but it does disappear quickly.
Overall, if you don’t want to take a chance with a conspiring pimple ruining your special day, this product is an absolute must have. I, for one, am forever going to repurchase this treatment product.
