For all of you that have not yet entered my giveaway, you still have time to enter. As I mentioned before, I will be picking a winner at random on Christmas.
I can honestly say that in my opinion you can't have great makeup without great skincare.Through my experience at Sephora, I come to face MANY different companies. I fell in love with the Kate Somerville line, the second I was introduced to it.
Her story is very inspiring. She has had skin issues of her own as she suffered from eczema (which she clearly has under control). She has come to be one of the most respected names in the skincare industry, through her skincare line (which is available at Sephora), her skincare clinic and her many celebrity clients who seem to be very grateful! =)
Exfolikate is Kate's most famous product. It is both a physical and chemical exfoliator. This product is ideal for all skin types. =) It contains salicylic and glycolic acid which easily exfoliate for a glowing complexion.
According to the Kate Somerville's website:
"-Fruit enzymes clarify skin by removing dead cells & eliminating bacteria
-Highly effective in combating acne, including stubborn blackheads
-Polishes skin, revealing a smooth, glowing complexion"
I can honestly say that I am in loveeee with this product. I keep it in my shower & use it once or twice a week.
Ideally I'd recommend using it at night time because some people experience some redness afterwards (which is completely normal). Exfolikate should be applied to the face for about 20-30 seconds and then rinsed off. A burning sensation is considered normal because this product contains cinnamon.
For those of you who think you might be too sensitive for this product there is an Exfolikate Gentle, which is rather similar besides the fact that it doesn't contain the cinnamon or salicylic acid.
For more information about Kate Somerville and her products, you can either access her website or buy her book. =)
Kate Somerville also makes a version of Exfolikate for the body.
