There is nothing more satisfying than finishing beauty products mainly because it means I can go shopping and try out new exciting brands like Kate Somerville. I did some research and found that they had a large range suitable for oily, acne prone skin, so I picked up a new toner and a gentle exfoliator which I have been using for a few weeks now, keep reading to see what I thought!
Kate Somerville - ExfoliKate Gentle | I tried a sample of this before I took the plunge on the full size and I was hooked from the first use. If you are struggling with dry patches and your make up clings to those areas I would highly recommend using this product twice a week, your make up will go on so smoothly! My skin looks bright and youthful in just after 3 weeks of use, you only need a pea size amount to work into your skin for a minute. The ExfoliKate has quite a gritty texture which did worry me as my skin is quite sensitive, but thanks to the soothing aloe vera and vitamin E ingredients I've had no reactions! This product will set you back $65 which is kinda steep but I loved the sample so much I thought it was worth it. As I've said you only need a pea size amount twice a week so it will last a long time! I would go as far to say that this is the best exfoliator I have ever used, I love the instant results and how my make up applies after use. Buy here
Kate Somerville - Clarifying Treatment Toner | I saw some great reviews on this toner for decreasing shine and that is my main skin issue which I seem to be in control of at the moment. This is alcohol, oil and fragrance free which I tend to look for in my toners as it means they will be gentle on the skin. My skin still feels hydrated after using this twice a day and my redness seems to be calming down thanks to the witch hazel in this product. I love the pump dispenser, it makes it so easy to get the right amount of product so no wastage! This is a little more affordable at $26, I would definitely repurchase in the future. Buy here
