Cult brand Kate Somerville finally became available in the UK in February this year. I’d heard so many good things about the brand, especially the Eradikate range, which is aimed at people with acne prone skin. 

As you know, I suffer with hormonal cystic acne so it didn’t take me long to place an order from Cult Beauty for Eradikate Blemish Treatment. I’m 2/3 through my first bottle and I’ve had to order a back up as I can’t be without it! This time I ordered from the Kate Somerville site and received a couple of samples to try too.

The idea is to apply Eradikate onto a spot, to help reduce inflammation and redness. I’ll be honest, I’ll try pretty much anything to clear my acne up quicker! Cystic acne is notoriously long lasting, with spots sometimes lingering for weeks!

Now back to the product. It has a two pronged approach to tackle spots as it’s in two layers - pink at the bottom and clear at the top. You dip a cotton bud into the product so it picks up both layers. You then dab this onto your spot. The clear liquid contains the main active ingredients which are BHA Salicylic acid (my favourite acid!), Sulphur and Zinc. These three work together to help reduce the blemish. The pink layer then dries on top to form a soothing seal. You leave it to work it’s magic overnight and wash off as normal in the morning.

I’ve had great  results with Eradikate, it’s amazing how quickly it can clear blemishes up, even acne cysts. The only downside I’ve found and it’s a small one, is that because of the strength of the product, it can quickly dry skin out. Honestly though, I’ve only experienced this with over use so I’ve only got myself to blame! I usually counteract this by applying an oil product in the morning. 

Have you tried Eradikate or a similar product? What’s your holy grail spot treatment?
