I got a nice sample of the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate in the Winter 2106 Beautycon Box (which I think is one of the best beauty boxes) and today I tried it out today. My skin was in desperate need of a treatment this week. The Kate Somerville ExfoliKate is pricey but oh is it nice!
What’s to love?
The Kate Somerville ExfoliKate is an exfoliating treatment that you use 1 to 2 times per week. It’s got all kinds of good stuff in it like Aloe Vera and Honey. It’s also got Papaya, Pineapple, and Pumpkin Enzymes for exfoliation and this is my kind of mask. It also has Lactic Acid.
The product is a green gel with grit and you apply a light layer on your face. As you can see from the photo you can barely see the product, it looks like I lightly dipped my face in seaweed.
It smells like a sweet earthy pumpkin and is very similar in scent to the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask which makes sense because both of them have pumpkin as one of the ingredients.
I rubbed the formula into my face using circular motions and it did burn a bit which I find normal for an exfoliating mask. This one feels similar to the GlamGlow FlashMud Brightening Treatment to me. The burn lasted for the entire 2 minutes I had it on. It does say to leave it on for just a minute if you have sensitive skin.
After 2 minutes I wiped it off with hot water and my face felt amazing. I had zero redness and when my face dried it felt smooth, clean and tight. I really liked the tightness I got from this product. I can’t wait to use it again next week.
Aside from the price I would definitely buy this product again, but I feel like it is worth the money. I was thrilled to get the $24 sample in my Beautycon Box.
Price: $24 for 0.5 oz. It’s $175 for 5 oz.
