Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment
In my adolescence, I never had to deal with many skin problems – I didn’t realize how easy I had it, never having to worry about what my skin looked like. But as an adult, the struggle has been real. I have had adult acne for since I was in my mid-twenties. It sucks. So, I’m always on the lookout for the right product to help treat breakouts and stubborn pimples. That’s when I came across Kate Somerville’s EradiKate Acne Treatment.
Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment claims to be specifically formulated to clear blemishes and acne scars, reduce the appearance of redness and prevent future breakouts. In the small bottle looks like two different substances – a pink sediment at the bottom and a clear substance on top; separated by their respective densities, not by anything physically in the bottle. The instructions tell you very clearly NOT to shake the product or mix the two substances. Dip a Q-Tip into the bottle until you reach the pink substance, then apply it to your blemishes. What’s unclear in the directions is how long to leave the product on, since it’s not the kind that your skin simply absorbs. I usually leave it on overnight, and wash it off in the morning. If you have sensitive pimples – like ones that have bled or been popped, then the product will sting a fair amount when you first apply it, but the feeling goes away quickly. Nothing you can’t handle if you’re really desperate to get rid of your acne, like me.
From the reviews on Sephora, I got the impression that it would be around 10 days before I saw any visible improvements. But I was delighted to see that the next morning after I first tried the Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment, my pimples were already smaller in size and less noticeable. I’m not saying they disappeared completely, but it was a definite improvement. I estimate that a single pimple would take about 3-5 days to disappear, using the EradiKate Acne Treatment. I also noticed that it has helped with the appearance of acne scars, but only slightly.
Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment is available at Sephora for $22.
