Product Revisited: Kate Somerville EradiKate

I remember when I bought this product I was so excited. This sulphur based product did wonders for my skin from a mild pimple to the angriest cystic acne.

In fact, in my original review (Product Review: Kate Somerville EradiKate), you can read about how enthusiastic I was that this was a new staple in my skincare routine.

So what changed?

The product does not have a long shelf life!

After about 4 months of owning this product all the liquid that harnesses the sulphur sediment evaporated. As I was taking special care of this $30+ product, all the liquid simply disappeared. Thus, making it impossible to dig out the sediment to treat acne.

I did not leave the cap off of this once.

As it is right now it is difficult to get enough sediment to stick to a Q-tip and you have to really dig for content.

Final Thoughts

I am really disappointed by this discovery. I’m on the fence whether or not I would purchase this again. On the pro side, it did a wonderful job of treating and taming my acne.

On the con side, for $30+ I expect a product to perform better, I don’t know if this is a packaging issue or ingredient issue. But I only got halfway through a bottle of this product.

Honestly, I am entertaining the idea of the Mario Badescu treatment it sells for half the cost. I just have to see what shipping restrictions there are for Canadians.

    I can’t say I’ve used this product, but I see that one of the ingredients is isopropyl alcohol which evaporates incredibly easily. You can consider buying a bottle from a pharmacy, diluting it down and saving the product – but it may not work as well anymore.

    I’ve read on Beautypedia that the alcohol in this product isn’t good for the overall health of the skin. I’ve tried the Mario bedescu version years ago and was on the fence also.
