Kate Somerville's exfoliation treatment is like a facial in a tube






Chemical peels are my favorite skin care routine. My skin has a mind of its own, but the only thing I know is that my dark brown sensitive cuticles love slime and come off without physical exfoliation.


On the road, Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate Intensive Pore Exfoliating Treatment has tons of five-star reviews, and I think the price will make you wonder if it's really worth it.

Don't get me wrong - I love investing in my skin, but since there are usually some budget options that achieve similar results to their more expensive counterparts, I usually stick with repeat products that come highly recommended.


In this case, no, so I'll try the original. Keep scrolling to learn more about my first experience with Kate Somerville's favorite peel. My skin: Combination skin, sensitive and hyperpigmented

As I started to learn about my skin in my 30s, I understood that my skincare routine needed to be more gentle and careful. I find the "less is more" approach extremely helpful, even when I have a large hormonal pimple on my chin


or worse, a small pimple in the middle of my forehead. The harsh products and strategies I once used no longer worked for my skin. Body scrubs are almost a no-no for me these days because they can make things worse and cause

reactive breakouts.


My routine these days is simple: cleanser, toner (evening), vitamin C serum (morning), retinol product (evening), clay mask (weekly), and chemical peel (weekly). Considering all the products I use over and over again in my daily

life, the ones I just listed have made a significant difference.


It wasn't easy at first because I love trying new things, but now I realize how valuable minimalist skin care is to me. Ingredients: Exfoliating, soothing. Papaya, pineapple, and pumpkin enzymes: This trio may sound like a

simple fruit cocktail but these three ingredients pack a powerful punch. Proteolytic enzymes are very beneficial in skin care formulas because they break down keratin in the top layer of skin, resulting in a brighter, smoother complexion.


Lactic Acid: Lactic acid is a powerful AHA that exfoliates the top layer of skin, smoothes wrinkles, reduces breakouts and promotes cell turnover.

Salicylic Acid: Salicylic acid is an oil-soluble BHA that fights whiteheads and can penetrate multiple layers of skin to cleanse pores with minimal irritation.


Silica: Biodegradable silica exfoliating beads remove dead skin cells from the surface. Feeling: Like peeling skin. Think of a green scrub, but with a fine texture. You can barely feel the silica beads on your skin when you massage it.

Packaging: hygienic and compact. The small white tube makes it easy to avoid overdose of product. It also closes tightly with a hinged lid so that all ingredients remain potent.


Result: skin becomes instantly radiant. Every now and then a skincare product comes along that wows you - and this is one of them. I was a little nervous about the mix of physical and chemical exfoliation due to the texture of

the green peel but my skin loves it. I felt a slight tingling sensation when I applied it and the tingling got stronger the longer I applied it. I don't want to say it's a burning sensation, but it's definitely more than just a


tingling sensation.

After two minutes, I rinse it off and apply hyaluronic acid. My pigmentation didn't go away, but my skin was just as radiant as the facial. I'm so impressed with this product and can't wait to see the cumulative effects as I


continue to use it once a week.

Value: This is hard. I have a hard time digesting the fact that a 2-ounce bottle of the green goodness costs $85. However, based on the immediate results, it's easy to see why someone would make a relatively large investment in


a single product.

However, when I compared it to facials, I realized it was a worthwhile investment because the results were so good - I think I could see the skincare guru less often. Similar Products: There is some clear competition. Goop by


Juice Beauty Exfoliating Instant Facial: Made with nearly 86% USDA Certified Organic ingredients, this dual-action exfoliant uses physical and chemical exfoliants (AHAs, BHAs, and plant cellulose beads) to It takes just three

minutes to remove dead skin and reveal a brighter, smoother complexion.


Tata Harper Regenerating Exfoliating Cleanser: This creamy formula is more than just a cleanser.

It's also an exfoliating treatment that leaves skin more radiant without irritation, thanks to apricot microspheres that physically exfoliate and pore-penetrating Willow Bark Extract BHA.
