On a recent trip to Sephora, looking to pick up Origins’ new skin care bundle, I happened to use some of my Beauty Reward points for the Kate Somerville’s Goat Milk collection. Great decision on my part. I ADORE all of Kate Somerville’s skin care products, all the ones I’ve tried anyways. I’m sure I’ll love all the ones I have yet to try as well. In this kit I received Kate Somerville’s Goat Milk Moisturizing Cleanser, Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream, Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm, and the ExfoliKate Gentle Exfoliator. Below I’ve listed individual reviews on the products included in this reward!
Goat Milk Moisturizing Cleanser
This cleanser is sooo gentle on the skin, making it perfect for those of all skin types. This product is great for use twice daily; once in the morning and once in the evening. I ensure to apply this product after I have first removed all of my makeup, as it allows all my leftover impurities to be cleansed. After use, it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and cleansed with an illuminating glow. I highly recommend giving this product a try if you’re looking for a new facial cleanser.
Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream
I was originally obsessed with Kate Somerville’s Nourish Daily Moisturizer, but once I tried this product I found it to be equally hydrating. To be completely honest, I’m really unsure which product I love more. I have very dry skin, especially in these wintery months, and so finding a reliable moisturizer is of personal great importance. If you have the opportunity, I recommend trying both of these products this winter. Your skin will thank you.
Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm
Are you ever tired of waking up with under eye bags? Wouldn’t it be the best to start the day glowing and awake (even if you’re not)? Kate Somerville’s Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm is the perfect solution to revitalize the eyes after a late night of studying/ partying/ Netflix. I generally apply this product to my under eye region each morning under my makeup; enabling its de-puffing magic. This product has never creased under makeup for me, so I wouldn’t worry about that factor. In fact, Kate Somerville claims that this cooling balm can be applied throughout the day over your makeup. I haven’t actually had the need to test this, so if you do end up trying this then let me know how it goes!
This is a staple item in my skin care routine, and it is completely true when they claim this product to be the first step to glowing skin. I don’t like to exfoliate my face on a daily basis, as I have fairly sensitive skin and I want to ensure gentle treatment. With this, I tend to exfoliate about 2-3 times per week. Although I love this product to bits, if I’m in the midst of an acne flare up I’ll choose to use my Proactiv Plus exfoliant instead of my Exfolikate. I’ve attached the link to my Proactiv Plus review here for your convenience. I’ll typically use Exfolikate once all my makeup is removed so that the product can properly engage with my skin; removing all unwanted impurities and dead skin cells. The beads contained in the solution for Exfolikate allow the dead skin cells to be easily removed, and the fruity ingredients then enable the removed dead skin cells to be dissolved. Whereas, other facial exfoliants only remove the dead skin cells from the face’s surface- not eradicating the impurities completely. After use, Exfolikate leaves my skin feeling refreshed, cleansed, and glowing. I would highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone!
