Most Helpful Positive Review FINALLY An Adult Acne Face Wash That Works WONDERS
I am so grateful for this face wash! I was hesitant to spend the money since I had tried so many different recommended & highly reviewed cleansers with no luck (and sometimes those cleansers made my breakouts worse); but the EradiKate Daily Foaming Cleanser is a GAME CHANGER, seriously. I didn't struggle with REAL acne (not just your every day pop-up zit here & there) until a year or so ago and it just hit me as I started approaching 30. I have PCOS and my acne has been attributed to new hormonal changes with age, and buddy it's no joke: cystic acne, recurring deep & painful zits. At first I kept picking & popping them so I'm left with dark scarring. I now use EradiKate as part of my daily routine: once in the morning and once at night, and it has worked WONDERS! When I have breakouts, I can tell the cleanser starts working immediately to dry up the blemishes & breakout itself, NOT my clear skin around it. It has been fading the scarring and evening my skin tone (I'm white and fair-to-olive skin tone). I have combination oily to dry skin that leans toward sensitive (allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide) and have had zero problems with drying or redness. It leaves my skin super smooth and brightens it. The smell is not great, a little sulfuric - but who the heck cares when it works so well?? Just go along with your toner and moisturizer and it covers up the smell. My husband still loves the smell of my skin so it must not be bad :) To anyone suffering from late onset acne, adult acne, hormonal acne, etc., give it a try! It for real changed everything for me.
Most Helpful Critical Review For Very Oily Skin
I have used 3 Kate Somerville cleansers, so I can do a comparison of the three: Gentle Daily Cleanser, ExfoliKate Cleanser and EradiKate Cleanser. If you are prone to small breakouts and have combination skin, I recommend the ExfoliKate Cleanser for daily night time use. It is very gentle, but it cleans my skin without stripping it. I would re-purchase it and highly recommend it. This EradiKate is really strong and quite drying. I only use it on occasion. I would not recommend this for daily use unless you are very oily. It tends to strip my skin of its natural oils and then I have to moisturize more to compensate for it. It also smells of sulfur, so keep that in mind. You could use it as a spot treatment and put it on for a few minutes and wash it off at the end of your shower. The Gentle Daily Cleanser is okay for summer mornings, but it is a little drying in the winter, so I tend to use it very sparingly in the winter. I also don't care for the packaging, it's a twist open lid and it is quite fluid, so it runs everywhere.

I've been using this product for almost the entire last year. I got it from a boxycharm box! I had to repurchase and am on my second one. I hate lots of redness and bumps on my cheeks this cleanser is not too harsh and helps clear it up.
Acne Is Clearing Up!!
LexiT from Fort Wayne, Indiana
I'm not one to normally write reviews, even for great products but I usually base my purchasing around others reviews so I wanted to share my thoughts for this cleanser so it could help others purchasing decisions. I had been using CeraVe SA Cleanser for well over a year and I felt it worked well for awhile. Over the past 6 or so months, my acne (I'm 23) had been getting worse and I wrote it off as stress, diet, and medications. After using the Kate Somerville cleanser for just over a month now, I can see a huge difference in my acne and redness. I began to think that my skin built up a tolerance to my previous cleanser which is why I made the switch. I've tried many acne cleansers and many have fallen short but this one is a winner!

This made me break out so much and I've never had issues with acne I tried it for about 2 weeks and I had to stop, it is really strong I would recommend only if you have acne
Madi from Kansas
I live this face cleanser. It goes on well and seems to help my face. I have normal to dry skin and this doesn't dry me out. Definitely use a moisturizer after it though.
good for rosacea
spgonzalez from los angeles, ca
I have a mild case of rosacea since I was a child. i have severely dry skin and in my early 30s. this helped calm my rosacea and its very gentle and doesn't smell too strong considering there is sulfur in it. i love it and I hope it never gets discontinued.
Truly the best

I have been struggling with maskne and have tried so many things to try and clear it up. I started using this and within two days my face was almost completely clear
Attacks breakouts, not drying!!!
dogmom from Los angles CA
This 3% sulfur acne wash is effective without drying skin out like other harsh acne treatments. Your skin feels clean but not tight. I gave this to my teen son who has not liked teen face washes due to their drying effect. I also used this as I still get occasional breakouts at my age (52) it's pricey but I think this line of skin care is top notch and worth it.
Ashlee from undisclosed
One of my favorite cleansers that makes my skin feel refreshed and super clean without drying it out
A must have for adult acne
Kara from undisclosed
I originally purchased this cleanser after tiring of using a prescription sulfur based cleanser. By using this daily for over one year, I can say that my adult acne is gone. A must have cleanser
Great even if acne isn't a main concern
Thu from undisclosed
I'm somewhat acne prone and I had very few breakouts with this product. It can be used as a daily cleanser and doesn't iratate or dry out the skin.
TEENAGE MUST HAVE!
Becky from undisclosed
I have a teenager that struggles with acne and this is a perfect product. After just one week of using this half of her acne is cleared up. I highly recommend this if you have kids growing up!
Gentle and non-Drying
Elisabeth from undisclosed
Really like this cleanser. Gentle yet cleanses my face thoroughly and doesn't leave me dry and taught.
Abigail from undisclosed
I've been using this cleanser for over 2 years, and it just never ceases to amaze me. The smell can be a little strong, but you get used to it (or get over it once you see the results!) It definitely works best when paired with the other Eradi-Kate products.
Very gentle and doesn't dry
Rebecca from undisclosed
Very gentle and doesn't dry out my skin like some other washes. Love it!
Cleared my acne!!
Na from Na
I have struggled with acne since being a teen and now I'm in my mid 30's still struggling. I have tried all acne cleansers; used prescription face products & nothing worked. This cleared my face in one week of using, I don't even recognize myself! I am so happy with this product & will continue to purchase forever!
My Skin Needed This
Liberty from undisclosed
I have rosacea and combination skin, so it can be really difficult to find a cleanser that cleans my pores without irritating or clogging them. This product has been PERFECT!
Nicolette from undisclosed
Not as good as the other daily cleanser but it's not terrible
Saved My Face
Kate's Mate from North Carolina
During the beginning of the pandemic I had the absolute worst cystic acne of my life, it was itchy and painful and nothing seemed to be helping, all of my old products only seemed to make it worse. I felt my entire face looked unrecognizable due to how much I was breaking out. My previous cleanser wasn't working anymore. When I found this I recalled a dermatologist I had seen in high school who had prescribed a sulfur wash that helped me at the time, so I took a chance to try this out. I noticed an immediate improvement in my skin tone and a lessening of break outs within two weeks. Over a couple of months this cleanser has almost completely cleared up my acne and is also helping to even out my skin tone to its previous complexion. This product is worth every penny!
Linda from undisclosed
This cleanser has been a game changer for my skin. My skin is less oily and it has tremendously help with my breakouts.
Only sulfur wash that's worthwhile
Sophia from Arizona
At the age of 17, I started having sensitive acne prone skin with mild rosacea and proactive wasn't working anymore.
I continued to use products with benzoyl peroxide but desperately wanted to find something else, as the drying and dependency my skin had was unhealthy.
Salicylic acid wasn't working so I moved on to sulfur. This is the ONLY sulfur face wash I have found that is worth while (what a shame, considering the price). But I continue to buy this, and to make it last (and save my skin the drying effect) I only use this at night after using an oil cleanser. Be sure to use a good moisturizer (I suggest first aid ultra repair cream).
Nicole from undisclosed
I have large pores, texture, and redness. This cleanser changed my life! So effective yet gentle and soothing. If I dare cheat, my skin feels it! Lol Literally a staple in my collection.
swati from undisclosed
It is very good for my skin.. can see the difference just by using couple days
Saidmara from undisclosed
I like the way it smells. If you used it with the acne lotion (the one with sulfur) it will work for your acne.
MakeupUser from Brentwood, CA
Clears up my acne perfectly! I use it every day and my acne disapears.
Best cleanser ever!!
Mary from undisclosed
I turned my sister and my boyfriend onto this cleanser. They refuse to use anything else. I love this one for daily use but use the goats milk when I'm a bit dry.
