I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
Every few months or so, mine stops working too. I now use Mario Badesco bc it seems the same and costs less, but I have to stop using it after I've built a tolerance.
Then, I wander around like, now what do I use? No, really, what should I use instead?? What do you use?
I swear our acne adjusts to the medication, because Eradikate was magical when I first started using it. I've been wanting to try the Mario Baedscu and will eventually once I've used up some of my stock.
I am still using Eradikate, at least until I finish it off, and I was sent one by InstaNatural to test. That is not even as good as the Eradikate.
It might work for some, but for me it definitely did not, it might have been because I have sensitive skin.
I had a large pimple and an event the next day and my friend recommended that I put toothpaste over it. I left it on over night, washed it off, and was left with a large burn/scab where the toothpaste was. That burn didn't go away for three weeks and I never ever tried the toothpaste method again. I went out and bought the Mario Badescu treatment later.
That stinks that you had a bad reaction - I was reading online that may happen (and why it was not recommended). I've never had a poor reaction personally, so it's my tried and true method.
...but I LOOOOVE me some Mario Badescu! Everything in the product line.
@notcreative For me, yes 100%.
Pretty sure my mom turned me onto it when I was going through puberty and whatnot lol.
I would put a generous bubble of toothpaste on the zit, go to sleep and wake up to a significantly reduced blemish. Even tones down the redness.
I just assumed there was some rule breaking to it or that maybe that wasn't actually good for your skin but it's been fail-proof for me for years. It always works and doesn't aggravate my skin at all.
I would suggest, however, getting a solid WHITE toothpaste, and not one with gels or other colors. I don't know what it is, but the standard 'ole white toothpaste (Colgate) is the trick.
(just did a google search and apparently dermatologists don't recommend it. If your skin is VERY VERY sensitive, I wouldn't listen to me.. mine isn't super sensitive.)
i have super sensitive skin including allergies and rosacea. As long as its my chin or somewhere away from eyes, it actually irritates my skin way less than salicylic
I wish I had saved my empties this month because it's been a successful month for full-sized products. I finished the following, plus several samples:
- PTR Cucumber Mask
- Paula's Choice Hydralight Toner
- Vita bath Shower Gel in Lavender Chamomile
This may not look like a lot, but that Cucumber mask was over two years old (a little goes a long way) and the shower gel has been in rotation with five others, so it takes me a long time to go through a bottle.
I also expect to finish my full-sized PC BHA Liquid and PTR Moor Mud Mask before the month is up.
