BEST. EXFOLIANT. EVER.
One of the most common questions I get here and on YouTube is about my skin. And if you know me, you know I take very good care of it! I’ve searched high and low for the best skincare products and, of course, I share them with you all. I want to make sure I’m recommending only the best of the best, (in every price range, that is) and this one is right at the top of my list: Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. I tried this product a long time ago and absolutely loved it; I’ve used it in phases ever since, but I think I’m going to stick to it for good!
It just makes my skin unbelievably smooth. It’s as if I just peeled off a layer of my skin and grew a brand new and healthy canvas. I compared my own experience with ExfoliKate with the reviews of other satisfied fans, and one word we all had in common was glow. This stuff makes your skin glow! It just brings a brightness to my face that I haven’t seen with any other product.
With ExfoliKate, you have to be sure you read the instructions carefully: Unlike most exfoliants, ExfoliKate is not technically a scrub. It has the consistency of one, but here’s how you use it: Cleanse your face, but don’t pat it dry. Leave it wet and apply a small amount of ExfoliKate to your skin and begin massaging in circular motions for about 30 seconds. Once that’s done, just let it sit for a couple minutes while the enzymes and acids go to work brightening and beautifying your skin. You might feel a slight tingling sensation while you wait, (if you’re not used to exfoliating or using products with any type of acid in them, you may feel it more. It might even get uncomfortable; if that’s the case, simply rinse it off and follow with a light moisturizer) and then just rinse and pat dry. I ended up getting a sample of the Kate Somerville retinol cream with my purchase, so I applied that after. A great option to follow with is 100% pure argan oil to sooth your skin and kick up the moisture.
This powerful product is a bit on the pricey side (a 2 oz. tube will run you about $85) but the great thing is that it comes in a smaller size for just $22! It’s a great chance to try it out before committing to a hefty price tag. The mini size will get you anywhere from about eight to twelve uses depending on how much you use each time.
