This serum made my skin break out really bad, and I would not recommend it for anyone with acne. I really wanted to love it, so I continued to use it for about two months. Once I stopped using it my acne cleared up. In addition to the acne, it didn't seem to do anything in terms of brightening or improving the overall look of my skin. Overall, I was disappointed and regretted spending so much money on this stuff.

I've been using this product twice a day for over a year now on my very dry skin. It's the only thing that works. It is pricey, so I did venture out and try other things but that didn't last long. Nothing gave me the hydration, glow and even skin that this product does. I get so many compliments on my skin ALL the time now, about it's glow, perfect complexion, etc and i owe it ALL to this amazing serum. I have suffered dry skin since i was a teenager and have spent, honestly, thousands of dollars to try anything and everything, high end and drugstore, and this is the miracle worker that changed it all for me. I recommend it to anyone looking for something to cure their dry skin & give you the perfect glow, not that dull, boring skin any more. You NEED to try this! Will continue to buy as long as they make it.

It has silicone in it. And for me, it broke me out horribly. I am in my mid twenties, with very sensitive skin. Moisturizing creams leave me too moisturized and I was looking for something in between. I thought that this was it. Bottom line, i truly feel this product is for those with mature skin. After i started using this as a hand moisturizer (which worked great as that, btw) I gave it to my mother. She had nothing crazy to say about it. She basically used it to have something to use on her face...it definitely lingered for a few months though. And this is someone who is a heavy user of Chanel skincare products. Cheap or expensive, the stuff lacks what it says to do. Kate Somerville doesn't have a winner to me with this one.
Fresh Seaberry Moisurizing Oil is a great alternative. I use that with no problem.

Yes, I did drink the Kool-aid and buy a Kate Somerville product for full price, even as I nobly passed by the Exfolikate.
It is acceptable, but not all that, and for the money, I'd definitely like to see a bit more of the alleged "intense hydration, increased firmness, and improved elasticity."
What it actually is in action on my face: a nice, super-light moisturiser. Probably ideal for me on humid summer days.
Light formula spreads well and disappears shortly without residue or stickiness.
No scent (I should put that first, considering what a perpetual big deal it is to me).
No breakouts or adverse reactions.
Nice bottle -- looks good, distributes an appropriate amount of product in a hygienic way, doesn't try to get too fancy.
Overhyped, definitely not delivering the promised goods.
Overpriced (surprise, surprise).
I'll happily finish this bottle, but I'm not going to be buying this one again.

I was sort of surprised by this product, as my skin usually responds really badly to 'cone-heavy formulas, but I like Quench a lot. I tried it at Sephora and initially I thought the texture was disgusting, greasy and slick, but the trick is to use a very tiny amount, just enough to smooth over your face, and let it dry for a minute or two before you put your moisturizer on.
I've been using it for three weeks now and my face looks great. It's midwinter here and I glow anyway. The only makeup I need is two dots of concealer to cover a couple of capillaries. It's expensive, but at the rate I'm going through it I think it will last 3-4 months at least, so amortize the cost and it's not that bad.

I got quite a few packages of samples of this and although on here it says its full of silicones it doesnt bother me... I havent broken out and have got a few weeks worth of use just out of the samples!...im on my way to buy one once i get my next paycheck!... if your face can handle the product I would deff. buy one.. it is PERFECT to use before makeup application, ESPECIALLY if you have dry skin! It does have a "greasy" feel upon first application but settles in and makes your skin feel like a babys butt! I think the key is not to use TOO MUCH of this product with each application...
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Although it feels very greasy/slippery when being applied, it actually feels nice on the skin. I forgot to look at the ingredients list, but I'm confident that silicone (unfortunately) is a key ingredient. My skin broke out after using it for two days. I will not buy again.

Didn't like this at all. Has a bunch of silicones in it. What for...idk. The texture is super slippery and greasy feeling. It actually isn't greasy once it's smoothed over the face though. Has no scent which is ok but I broke out after the first day of use. I don't recommend for people with easily congested skin.

Not stocked in the Sephora store, so bought on-line. Pretty packaging, dispenses easily. I've recently purchased other skin care products so I don't know if this is working. I do have to say it is VERY oily...kinda like cooking oil...not sure if this is what's causing my breakouts or one of the other new products I'm trying. I'll post an update in the future after I've used it consistently for awhile.

I agree w the reviewer one below me, what was Kate thinking when she made this? It is loaded with silicones. How are any active ingredients going 2 absorb into my skin and work when all these 'cones' are blocking them?
Of coarse this product makes the skin feel smooth and soft, that would be all the silicones in this product. Don't get me wrong, there r quite a few KS products I adore, this simply is not one of them. With all the fillers in this product I can't believe the cost. Dr.Denese has a product that feels the same w all the cones but in her formula it has actual actives. I wish Kate took out all the fillers so my skin actually could "drink" up the moisture and quench itself. Oh well*shrugs shoulders* guess I'll keep looking for that "drink if water product " with the right actives in it. I have products I love for moisture&hydratiom but they don't have any antiaging actives, I was hoping this would b different after hearing about it.

Love this stuff,i have mild eczema on my face and this really helps with the dryness. I think for what it is its a little overpriced though..Im sure there are cheaper versions that do the job just as well.

O.K What was Kate Sumerville thinking when she made this product. One thing you have to learn about serums is not just the formulation but how it feels on the skin is a big factor. This product has so much silicone that when I applied it to my face it felt that I was applying baby oil on my face. Please reformulate the product. too greasy.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I have to agree with what some of the other reviewers have said here, that it doesn't seem to absorb, but just sit on top of your skin. It's heavy with silicone, and if this is your moisturizer of choice, it's fine. You have to be very careful that you distribute the product evenly, or you'll see immediate dry patches where you missed a spot. I still prefer jojoba oil over this product for it's better absorbency.

I really wanted to like this serum, so I read the reviews and even tried the advice of putting it on over my moisturizer. I don't recommend doing this--it doesn't soak in this way. Well, I've used up almost an entire bottle and have to say that I'm not overly impressed. I've found that Quench hydrates temporarily and I think it contributes to (if not causes) the production of blackheads.

I was surprised how much i liked this. it really helps to keep my skin moisturized. when i first purchased, the sa told me to apply quench before the nourish moisturizer. but then i read that it's supposed to be applied after, to lock in the moisture. i think this serum does work best after applying all other products. i don't like to packaging though because my bottle leaks.

Not sure what is so great about this stuff?? I used it a few times and it feels as though it is LOADED with silicone. And reading the review a few below mine, I see that it is. While silicone is nice for a primer, something that I want to actually penetrate & moisturize my face and not sit on top of it and do absolutely NOTHING...sorry, leave out all that silicone. But, that is exactly what this stuff feels like....like it is just sitting on my top layer of skin making it feel "slick" from the silicone.....as far as "penetrating" moisture, this does absolutely nothing of the sort which I find completely USELESS!!!
So glad all I had was a free sample.....if I would have wasted my money on this crap I would have been ticked!!! It doesn't even deserve a lippie, but seeing I have to give at least one.....there ya go.........

Quench was a miss for me ladies. One of the ingredients is Wheat Germ Oil which is super high on the comodegenic scale and caused clogged pores within two weeks of nightly use. If you are prone to breakouts, steer clear of this one...

This serum contain a lot of silicone you can see from the ingredient list.
Ingredients list: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone, Lecithin, Octyl Cocoate, Phenyltrimethicone, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Retinol (Vitamin A), Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Glycolipids, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride.
I am not sure that I really love this serum or not it's kinda mix feeling. First, when you put on your face is kinda slick smooth feeling then it absorbs to your skin pretty fast. But I don't think it give enough hydration to my skin. Surely, feel good when you first put it on your face but after that.. nothing happen. Good thing is it doesn't break me out or anything. Normally, I don't like skincare that contain silicone that much. But this one seems to be okay. I might just finish this one and buy Total Vitalmin instead.

Quench is wonderful as a mix in. I have dry skin that is always needing moisture so after cleansing I moisturize with a face lotion and put a layer of Quench OVER my moisturizer and it hydrates my skin beautifully. I understand why this stuff has such a cult like following.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I'm seriously loving Quench. It has all the right ingredients including moisturizing wheat germ oil and antioxidants vitamins E, A and C in great amounts. It keeps my skin moisturized but NOT oily. It gives only a very slight glow, but that's fine for me because I use a luminizer under my makeup anyway.
EDIT: Even though it's still a great product, I will not buy again as it is ridiculously expensive when I can find equivalents for less money.
