Mario Badescu vs EradiKate

June 23, 2017

About a week ago, I posted my {new} skincare essentials and wrote about the Mario Badescu drying lotion. Well, I picked up EradiKate from Sephora and decided to put them to the test. Are you ready?

$17 @ Ulta
Mario Badescu is described as a Drying Lotion that is a "fast acting, effective acne spot treatment". One of the main ingridients in the MB Drying Lotion is that is contains Calemine, hence the scent that takes me back to my childhood of when I had chicken box. Calemine is designed to treat pain, itchiness, and discomfort. When I used this it took more than 3 days to dry out a breakout I had. It did the job - but way too slow. In addition, it dried as soon as it touched my skin. Throughout the night it would crack and flake or peel off.

Price: $26@ Sephora
EradiKate is described as effective treatment to fight blemishes and minimize pimples, acne, and help prevent future breakouts. This does not have that calamine but it felt a lot cooler on the skin, and not as thin as the MB Drying Lotion did. However, this does have magnesium aluminum silicate which helps thicken the product. Although this can be practically useless, maybe this is what helped in keeping the treatment on my breakouts throughout the night! This helped my breakout in just ONE night. EradiKate does have sulfur in it, and an overall higher concentration of acne fighting ingredients! So, is the extra 9 dollars worth it?

Yes, I definitely think it is worth it. Overall it's better quality and more product!
