What is everyone using for acne treatment in their 40’s?
So I bought [product:kate-somerville-eradikate-acne-treatment] and I’ve been using it for 3 days and there’s been zero improvement with my breakouts. Am I using this wrong? I have no idea why it works for everyone else except for me? I’ve used it as the last step to my skincare regimen and I’ve used it as a first step to my regimen and neither ways improved my skin so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong?
Is this better than Mario Badescu Drying Lotion and did you have problems using on sensitive skin?

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. It is pepto-bismol pink so thats a weird association I made and you might make too! Heads up : This product will dry out the area you apply it to. So, in the beginning try applying it to the pimple every other day. Moisturize after you wash your face!!

Formulated with highest amount of sulfur possible to heal blemishes. It is designed to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores with zinc oxide. It will dry out pimples and help them heal faster. It can dry out the skin and cause it to peel. It doesn’t cause excessive drying. This is a short term treatment for pimples. The product is a two phase solution. One liquid, the other more of a paste. The heavier settles on the bottom. I use a q-tip to dip down into the heavier product on the bottom and apply it directly to the blemish. Do not shake the bottle. It smells like alcohol. There is a lot of alcohol in it, so I would not recommend to people with very sensitive skin. This is a decent treatment for painful, angry pimples. I wouldn’t advise using it everyday because it is drying.

This is like liquid gold! It is a little weird that there is liquid on the top and this pink mushy stuff on the bottom and it says not to shake it. So you take a q-tip and dip it into the pink mushy part and put that on your acne & spots that you want to fade just at night time & truly over night they had improved dramatically! I used it about 3 nights in a row and my skin cleared up! Yes it is expensive but I have been looking for anything that works. I am 39 & have struggled all my life & have tried everything out there. I am beyond happy with this product. I have not had to use this the last two nights because it also keeps acne at bay. I will keep this in stock at all times!

I wanted to love this like everyone else does! I was disappointed by this product because it did not dry down newly erupted whiteheads, pimples, or closed comedones. It usually resulted in dry flakey skin that made the blemish even more obvious.

I received the Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment in a mini size and just used it recently for the first time when I had a few pimples on my chin. I applied some on each pimple before I went to bed and I woke up in the morning and they were noticably smaller and dried out. I've tried so many acne spot treatments but this is one of the few that actually worked! Would definitely repurchase the full size!

I just applied this today to my blemishes. I have hypothyroidism and tend to get cystic acne regularly. I’m giving a 3 star because the smell isn’t the best. It smells like sulfur. EradiKate

It works! I leave this treatment over the night and in the morning I see less acne and blemishes! Of course they don’t completely disappear over one day, but I can definitely see reduction. Would highly recommend!!

EradiKate. This product does not work very well. It seems like that very strong to heal the acne port. Compare the similar product from other brand. This is also over priced. Will not pursed any more.

Absolutely in love with this magical product! Super fast and easy to apply with a qTip! I bought this a couple of times already and use it before I go to bed and before I moisturize my skin! I would highly recommend to dab on acne and in the next day it definitely reduces it!

I've never used this because I'm older, but I'd say that this is going to take time. There's no magic wands. But there's a million small things that can be contributing to acne issues. Wash makeup brushes frequently and use antibacterial soap. Misting them with some "brush cleaner" isn't getting them as clean as hot water and dial soap. That's what I had to use in a studio every night for years. Then, make sure you're changing your pillow cases often and cleaning off your cell phone screen. I know this sounds simplistic, but, historically, I've seen a lot of eyes light up when I've said these things. Good luck, I know acne issues are tough.

Is this better than Mario Badescu Drying Lotion and did you have problems using on sensitive skin?
Selden T. il y a 2 mois
I haven’t tried Kate’a but I used to use Mario bedescu and it didn’t work for me at all. I also have sensitive skin and it didn’t do anything. It was a waste of money.

I love this product much more than Mario Badescu. Kate Somerville Eradikate is Heaven sent and works like a dream on stubborn acne!
