First impressions of the ExfoliKate by Kate Somerville
I was recently gifted a sample size of the ExfoliKate by Kate Somerville. I actually hadn’t heard of the brand Kate Somerville or the product before so this was a new and unfamiliar treat for me! The sticker saying “Hollywood’s two minute facial” immediately caught my attention and got me excited.
ExfoliKate is an exfoliating treatment that you can leave on the skin like a face mask and remove with water or in the shower. Due to its intensive and high potency. They recommend for sensitive skin to use the treatment for only 60 seconds. Whilst combination, dry and oily skin types can leave the treatment on for 2 whole minutes. ExfoliKate has quite a rough gel like texture, with small granular beads that desquamate any rough skin. You can apply this just like a mask and really work it into the skin by rotating your fingertips in circular motions across the face. This is the sort of product you would only use once or twice a week to reduce oil, grime, dull and thickened skin. Important tip – Make sure you keep this treatment well away from the eye area.
What I noticed:
Smoother and softer skin
Reduction in oil/shine
It purified and detoxified any grime or oil
This was the first green coloured exfoliant I’ve ever seen and its safe to say I was so surprised as a squeezed it out of the tube for the very first time. But despite the odd green colour – the ExfoliKate really did impress me. After I removed the product my skin felt so much softer, cleaner and really purified. Although, it has only been two weeks since using the product in my routine, I can tell this is going to be a favourite of mine.
Lots of love,
