I would give this product a "0" rating if it was possible. *sigh*
Im currently using Retin-A/ Tretinoin cream for acne. Ive been on it for several months so Ive passed the initial *purging* stage. I mainly use (every 2-3 days) for maintenance. Going back to this horrible moisturizer- it was recommended to me by some sephora employee for my excessive peeling dry skin. BTW I have oily skin but the dry cold weather + retin A makes my skin flaky and I thought this would help. I used it daily and after a week - i broke out so badly all over my chin, cheeks and forehead with painful cystic acne! Cannot tell you how angry I am. I was acne free with NO SCARS on my face and now im left with horrible horrible horrible cystic pimples and scars. Its been 2 weeks and my skin is still recovering.
Sorry for the long review but I hope this helps anyone out there who is using Retin-A ( tretinion cream) and facing similar issues as me. My face is a complete mess. :(
Very nice packaging love the air tight jar, but now onto the good stuff whats inside.
It's a very milky product, having said that it still has body to it so you feel moisturized(a little dewy). I really like the way my skin look after I use it. The ingredients while NOT 100% natural are pretty good. Some people say it smell bad, I however like the smell a lot.

This is a great cream for dry or oily skin that is DEHYDRATED. I have combo but dehydrated skin and I only use this at night because it is very moisturizing and can give a shiny appearance. In my opinion, it is not a semi matte finish. It's pretty glowy. I attibute that to the avocado and coconut oils as those 2 are the heaviest of the oils in this cream. The jojoba, witch hazel, willow bark are great as far as balancing and keeping the skin clear if you are acne prone. The coconut and avocado might be problematic for some but as with any creams, YMMV.
So in this cream you've got BHA and lactic acid in a very moisturizing base. It is ideal for acne prone skin and a great night treatment for dehydrated skin in general. I love using this in the fall and winter! I use Retin A cream .1% 3x a week and this is a fabulous cream for my skin on my off nights because of the exfoliating and pore clearing properties, as well as heavy duty moisturizing oils without mineral oil, which is essential when you are on such a drying face treatment.
Secondly, the packaging is genius. It's in a jar with a push down dispenser and it dispenses just the right amount of product for your face, neck and décolleté. It also lasts forever if you are using it strictly for the face as you can control how much you dispense. So half a pump would be fine for the face.
All in all this is a great cream, I love it but it is too greasy for day use for me, which is why I gave it 4/5 stars. I like to use creams that I can apply morning and night and this is strictly night time for me.
I decided to give this lotion a try when I heard from youtube that it was great for hydration. I recently moved to a desert area and wanted something that would super hydrate my skin. Unfortunately this product has not helped in this regard…here in the desert it’s best for day cream. However, it’s not even a favorite day cream for me. Some moisturizers even make my foundation look good after application…but this doesn’t make my skin look good (it makes my skin still look dry in matte foundation...basically it's still not hydrating enough). The positives about this cream is that it’s not scented and it keeps my face matte.
I bought this during Kate Somerville's black friday for half the original price. But I cannot imagine buying this product for the full 58 dollars. So my final verdict is that it’s an okay moisturizer…I’ll probably try something else and not repurchase.
I really wanted to love this product, but it's not for me. Don't get me wrong, it's a good cream. It didn't break me out and it really was nourishing. My problem was that it didn't sink in and left a greasy film on my skin. Some might like this since it gives a glow, but for me it made my makeup last much shorter than normally. It's good, but not worth the price...
Got a sample of this from sephora and it is delightful! Doesn't clog my pores at all and i great if you have acne prone skin. Very light and hydrating moisturizer that works well underneath makeup. This is actually the best moisturizer I have tried. LOVE LOVE LOVE
A friend who has glowing skin recommended this for me, as I'm on the hunt for a moisturizer and have been for the past six months.
She loves Kate Somerville products so I got samples of both Nourish and Goat Milk creams. Nourish was really below average and quite sticky - supposedly a lighter cream than Goat Milk. I waited a while to actually try Goat Milk, and I was convinced it would be amazing. Lo and behold - clog city.
I am overcoming and still battling acne (right now its more so just clogs), and have just gotten the hang of things and my routine. I decided to add this in once I knew what was working for me - and when I did, I got ridiculous clogs on my forehead especially.
COSDNA shows that Goat Milk cream contains a couple really comedogenic ingredients that can be pretty bad - mostly, Cocos Nucifera Oil. There are a couple other mildly irritating ingredients but the story is that it just doesn't work for my dry, sensitive, and acne-prone skin. Perhaps I was saved from spending $$$$$ on a moisturizer - this stuff is seriously expensive. But the packaging is really cute!
My search continues...
Seriously this line is over priced, I paid so much for this cream and results to nothing!
Now my skin care routine consists of the body shop seaweed cleanser, rose hip oil( amazing stuff) and Vaseline as and eye cream, done simple and wallet friendly..
luxury in a bottle. i can't even tell you how much i adore this cream. i have combo/oily skin and was a little hesitant that this "cream" might be too heavy for me, but it's actually pretty light & packs a good punch of moisture in it leaving behind baby soft skin. there's a very very light goat's milk scent to it but nothing unbearable. the texture is like that of a milkier lotion but don't underestimate how good it nourishes the skin. definitely a quality cream worth investing in. the packaging is a little weird. it's an unconventional pump. nothing extreme, but different. my all time favorite night cream!
I really had high hopes for this cream. I love the Kate Somerville spa/clinic in L.A. and have gotten a couple of great facials there. I think her line has some great products. I personally have very, very sensitive reactive skin. This product definitely caused irritation and bumps. I would not recommend if you have sensitive skin. It is probably fine if you have normal, non-reactive skin. I've decided instead of trying to find the perfect "designer" skin care regime to just stick to the very basics. Purpose cleanser and a drug store non-fragrance moisturizer. If you have very sensitive skin chances are these expensive, well packaged products are going to irritate your skin.
