Treatments (Face) -Kate Somerville -Exfolikate

This was definitely not worth the price. The two most problematic things for me were the smell (it smelled like cinnamon apple sauce) and the color (like puree spinach) I felt as if I was putting a disgusting baby food on my face. Add the tub and you have a pretty gross experience.

As for the performance, it wasn't great. Really no exfoliation to be seen. My skin was soft to the touch, but my texture, pores and fine lines were exactly the same. My makeup applied the same. It stung a little while I left it on as a mask, but nothing came of it.

A dud product for me. Over hyped and overpriced. Returned.



Lotions/ Creams -Kate Somerville -Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream

This wasn't a hit for me, but most moisturizers aren't. This is overpriced.
I enjoyed the smell, clean light, and floral. It worked great on my lips and made my fine lines soften, but ultimately broke me out. This is a HEAVY moisturizer. Beware.
The packaging is chic.
I returned.

So, just an idea of the face I have... I have sensitive skin. I had hormonal acne breakouts since teens and now I'm in my 40's- still getting breakouts!!! Some of my break outs are stress induced so I'm getting a combo of break outs now. Oily t-zone, rest is dry as a bone. I've tried it all, and I recently went back to proactiv- wasn't doing anything at all for the past 3 months. I discovered this face wash and thought, a little expensive but, let me try something new. I can usually tell when im about to drop a cycle when my face breaks out, but after 2 days of using this, it minimized the size of my acne. It's been a month and no break outs! Even when I feel a slight bump coming on, I dont even worry because by the time I wash my face with this, it goes away.

The gel itself is liquidy and it doesnt foam, but I take advantage of that by massaging my face- which is really good for you to do anyways so I self pamper for about a minute. Smell is light, but everyone has a preference. My dry parts do feel a bit more dry after the wash, but that's what moisturizer is for! On summer hot days, I tend to use a really good matte moisturizer (Merl Norman) which keeps the shines away .

What this does not seem to do is even out skin tone, significantly lighten dark spots (I have seen a small improvement with it looking a bit lighter), minimize pores, destroy blackheads, or any other thing we would all want. It simply cleans your face and keeps it from breaking out, which to me is such a good start!

What is promising is checking out the rest of this skincare system and seeing how they work together. There are serums, spot treatments, scar reducers, black head erasers and pore minimizer treatments.

It is on the expensive side, I'm not even going to lie, but I used to swear by drugstore products, but I guess age is kicking me up the ladder and I need something a little more heavy duty. It feels good to put on some BB cream for a wedding and my face is smooth and healthy looking without having to use a pound of concealer and magic tricks to deflect from all my break outs.

It's awful having cramps and then seeing all these breakouts form all over my face after weeks of it starting to die down. Paying for something this good and being able to step out with no make up on makes me feel my best every day now. I absolutely love this face wash and I am looking forward to the rest of the collection!

This stuff works! I've started to get menopausal outbreaks on my chin and tried this after reading reviews online. Wow! This really does clear blemishes overnight. It can dry the skin out so im careful to apply only to areas the need it.

I personally love this:) I am also a Charlotte tilbury junkie and she has a similar product. But I think I like Kate’s a lot more. I got a smaller container of it as a gift sample. Wasn’t expecting much but I am hooked. Perhaps it’s the smell I like. Kind of reminds me of my moms face cream when I was a kid(I am 56). It’s a clean soothing smell. I like it. Now I hope Kate comes out with a jumbo size for the holidays. Tonight I actually used some my cleansed face as a night cream: as I have some dry patches from microdermabrasion. It’s not heavy it’s not greasy. I ordered a large size to keep on using it.
