Spring Exfoliation! Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

28 Feb

After yesterday’s sad discovery, today I’m giving you a SULFATE-FREE exfoliator that I absolutely love – Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment.

This exfoliator uses not little scrubber beads, but ENZYMES (?!?) to exfoliate your face. As a result, it doesn’t require a lot of scrubbing – simply smooth the green goo onto your face in the shower, allow it to “work” for 20 – 30 seconds, per the instructions, and rinse off. (Note – according to the company, there are “Scrubbing Microbeads” in the wash, but I have never felt them, so they must be pretty micro.) You will feel a tingly/burning sensation as it works, and may experience some residual redness after rinsing. I have pretty sensitive skin, though, and have had no ill effects after using this two times a week for the past several months. Additionally, I like the smell – it’s kind of a spicy organic odor, like a spiced pumpkin candle or something.

The one thing I note is that some people find it TOO abrasive or drying. I have not had these issues, but given that this exfoliator costs a pretty penny, I do suggest hitting up Sephora for a sample before diving in and buying a whole tube based on my recommendation alone.
