Cleansers -Kate Somerville -Detox Cleanser

This is a strong tea tree scented yellow gel cleanser. Does a good job removing grime and light makeup. This feels like a 'natural brand' cleanser for oily/congested types. I don't think its strong enough to get rid of serious blemishes and unless you love tea tree, I would recommend that you try this before you buy. I think this is a better cleanser than the exfolikate however its a lot more expensive than many natural brands for the skin type.

Masks -Kate Somerville -Wrinkle Warrior Pink Plumping Mask

I got this product as part of a valentines day gift from my mother, and I really thought I would like it because I love the wrinkle warrior serum. I don't have any major wrinkles to begin with so my review is based off of that.

Anyway, I don't think this mask does anything for me. I just finished the jar last night. I like the smell and the way it looks, it's pretty and pink, but I don't buy skin care products based on how they look. I've tried leaving it on for much longer than the recommended 10 minutes but still, nothing.

I don't think this is a bad product, I just think it doesn't work for me and the few fine lines I have.

Treatments (Face) -Kate Somerville -Wrinkle Warrior

I got a sample packet from Sephora and I decided to try it out. On the package it says "1 use 100% showed improvement in the look of wrinkles." With a sample, you can't get a true answer.It’s a very light, gel-like cream that dries quick so I set it with Caudalie mist or Smashbox Hydrating Primer for extra moisture if needed in the winter. The scent doesn't bother me and it's pleasant. The price is steep, but I didn't realize it was a 2-in-1 - Moisturizer and Serum. I pay $70 for Clinque face serum, $60 for Clinque eye serum and $45 for Clinque Moisture Surge which is $175 plus tax, so I'm going to try this at $95. I'll update you after I try a full size bottle and get a true test. Thanks for reading!

Treatments (Face) -Kate Somerville -Exfolikate

I got a one-use sample of this with a recent Sephora order and for some reason I was so nervous to try it out -- would it melt my skin off?! This was a pretty ridiculous fear because my skin is very tough and no stranger to chemical exfoliation, but STILL. Anyway, I tried it recently before bed, and of course, it didn't melt my face off. What it did was make it smooth, soft, and a little bit red (but all exfoliants do that, yeah?). The product itself is a green paste with what I think are microbeads in it (didn't the US outlaw these? Hmmm!), and you scrub it around your face and then leave for 1-2 minutes to let the fruit acids do their thang. I was happy with the result from one use of this product, but I won't buy it again. I currently use a lot of chemical exfoliation on my skin (Murad Age Reform cleanser and Alpha Hydrox 10% lotion), and at the exorbitant price of this product (the most miniscule size is $24 and the 2-oz is $85!), I'm sure I can live without Exfolikate in my routine. Pssst...if you want a decent chemical exfoliation treatment at a more reasonable price, I definitely recommend both the Peter Thomas Roth pumpkin mask and the Andalou Naturals pumpkin mask.

Cleansers -Kate Somerville -ExfoliKate Cleanser

I have been using this facial cleanser for ~3ish weeks now in the morning, and at night. My skin has improved dramatically since I started using it. I will say that it made me break out for the first couple of weeks due to the active ingredients sloughing away skin cells on the top layer of my face. This allowed stuff in my clogged pores and pimples to rise to the surface. Everyday my skin gets better, though. I do have dry/combination skin that is quite sensitive.

Pros
-Smells really great; light citrus-y scent
-No exfoliating beads in sight
-Simple packaging
-A little goes a long way
-Lovely lather

Cons
-pricey
-a little drying

I follow up this facewash by patting some alcohol-free cucumber witch hazel on my face, and then adding some Lush celestial face cream. This keeps my skin nice and hydrated afterwards. Because this contains lactic acid, I also make sure to wear sunscreen during the considering this exfoliator increases cell turnover on the face.
