Cleansers -Kate Somerville -Purify Clarifying Cleanser


I have oily skin and I'm a guy, so harsh products don't really bother me (read: this is a harsh product). I've even put lavender oil and tea tree oil on my face neat and haven't had problems (don't recommend this). Anyway, I got this on sale for 50% off so paid about $17 for it. The cleanser is strong and definitely not for dry or sensitive skin. It strips your oils out for sure. However, the use of irritating menthol ingredients is troublesome. Every time I wash my face with it my eyes burn like hell. The pump is also annoying. You have to screw it back every time oyu use it, and if you forget a bunch of product falls out. So even if you have really oily skin, I think there's better cleansers that are gentler yet more effective.

Treatments (Face) -Kate Somerville -Exfolikate

on 6/24/2018 8:06:00 PM


Why does this contain so many ingredients? Why is it so overwhelmingly scented? It’s smells somewhere between the grass in my yard and chai tea, very spicy and earthy, and just way too fragranced for my liking. The scent lingers long after use too. Yuck. Why is this green? From the list of ingredients I don’t see anything jump out at me as to why this would be the case. I may be in the minority but I really didn’t like this exfoliating treatment. Physical exfoliators all feel grainy, nothing new here. Chemical exfoliators take some time to do their work, not 1-2 minutes. Usually we are talking a bit longer, many times an overnight cream. I’m so thankful that I only had a sample packet to use (came with one of my Sephora purchases) because the scent alone would keep me from purchasing this product. Okay, it’s also quite expensive but I’m not averse to spending good coin on fantastic products. I just don’t think this deserves my hard earned $.

Self Tanners -Kate Somerville -Somer 360 Tanning Towelettes Face and Body

on 6/22/2018 12:56:00 PM

Is this product a joke? I followed the directions precisely and ended up with orange, streaky, awful smelling skin. I purchased it so that my legs wouldn't look so pale for a presentation I was giving and am so grateful the weather ended up too cold to wear a dress. It would have been so embarrassing to have such obvious self-tanner skin. This product is expensive, smells awful, and doesn't work. Good idea, terrible execution.

Treatments (Eye) -Kate Somerville -Wrinkle Warrior® Eye Gel Visible Dark Circle Eraser

on 6/21/2018 4:22:00 PM


This gel formula absorbed into the skin nicely, and provided comfortable, basic hydration. Glides nicely. Other than that, it had no other benefits, what so ever. It actually made my wrinkles look worse. Expensive, and finished product in three months. I spoke to a representative of Kate Somerville about how quickly I ran out of the product, since normally a 15 ml of eye cream last me four to five months. All she could tell me was: "It doesn't last forever." over and over again. Makes me wonder how much of the product do they really put in the fancy pump container. A few flakes of the metallic paint from the dispensing nozzle chipped off and went onto the gel, therefore, onto my skin. I definitely will not repurchase this product.

Treatments (Face) -Kate Somerville -Anti Bac Clearing Lotion


The price of this product definitely causes some hesitation, but I took a chance on it, and was honestly amazed. I know that my skin usually responds well to Benzoyl Peroxide products, but I've been having a prolonged chin breakout for almost three months. My usual favorites, Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask and Paula's Choice Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment, hadn't been able to keep up. My skin was becoming irritated and much more likely to flake/peel then it ever had. Enter: Kate Somerville. The product has excellent slip, I feel like it's effective with minimal application, and it delivers the results of Benzoyl Peroxide with actual hydration and virtually no irritation. I applied it only to my chin for about five days and the appearance change was dramatic. I still had a few small clogs along my jaw line, but nothing like I had been dealing with. Since then, I've treated a few small forming zits by double cleansing, applying blue light therapy, and finishing with a tiny dab of Anti Bac.
