EradiKate: Day 13

13 Sep

As you may or may not know, I’ve been testin’ out Kate Somerville’s EradiKate, which is her sulfur-based spot treatment. It’s a weird pinkish type sediment that sits at the bottom of a little bottle, with a clear liquid on top. You aren’t supposed to shake it, so just stick in a Q-tip and put it on wherevz.

And oh my gawd, it’s working wonders! First of all, it’s preventative. I haven’t had any nasty new breakouts. Second of all, it treats those m***** f****** like crazy! Without drying out your skin. I love this stuff. It’s definitely going to be a permanent player in my morning routine.


EradiKate : Day 5

6 Sep

Some people spend their whole lives looking for the perfect mate. Others spend their whole lives looking for fulfillment and happiness. And others, ie me, spend their whole lives looking for the perfect spot treatment.

And in my 19 years, I have yet to find one.

Which is why when I got Kate Somerville’s EradiKate, a sulfur based acne treatment, I didn’t expect much. I’ve learned to not get my hopes up so as not to get disappointed. Yeah, I’m jaded.

In any case, I’ve been on Eradikate for five days, and I actually really like it. You dip a Q-tip into the bottom of the little jar, where all of the pink sediment is, and then you swab it over problem areas. It tingles at first, but then your skin gets used to it. I can imagine though, that if you have super sensitive skin, this may be a problem.┬áBut for me, the treatment wasn’t at all drying. On fact, the pinkness of the solution worked almost like a concealer, and neutralized the redness of my blemishes / acne scars, and left a nice base over which to apply my foundation.

In terms of spot reduction, well, it’s only been five days. I’ll keep yall updated. But right now, I like what I see. I definitely haven’t gotten any new pimples, and I think I discern a slight decrease in existing ones.

I’ll check in again on day 10.
