Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
This dual-action exfoliator features both physical and enzymatic exfoliants (including lactic acid and fruit enzymes) to get the best of both world and soft, glowing skin revealed from within. It has a fantastic vibrant green colour and has a slightly gritty texture thanks to the physical exfoliant. You massage this into the skin (giving you a physical exfoliant experience) and then leave it on the skin to get all the benefits of this gorgeous treatment.
There’s also a gentler version of this fabulous product too if you’ve got more sensitive skin.
Leave on for: up to two minutes after gently massaging into the skin for 30 seconds.
This is another supercharged product that brings the glow! It utilizes a high level of Glycolic Acid, which does tingle upon application but doesn’t feel irritating or leave any redness… just gets the job done to exfoliate the skin beautifully, leaving it soft and glowing. Love the inclusion of Hyaluronic Acid too for added hydration.
The Skin Perfecting 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel is a wonder product! Every time I use it, my skin feels so noticeably smooth after using, it’s wonderful! Love the glittery purple colour, this supercharged exfoliant works in 10 mins to leave you with glowing skin… love! It features a blend of five different alpha hydroxy acids: 8.4% glycolic, 7.1% lactic, 5% mandelic, 2% malic and 2.5% tartaric acid, along with a 2% amount of oil-soluble BHA (salicylic acid).
Get glowing skin in just 20 minutes. This is a lovely, fast-acting AHA / BHA mask that helps to exfoliate the surface of the skin. This leaves the skin with a lovely glow, but can even be used on more sensitive skin without causing irritation, which is fabulous. A great way to give the skin a quick boost… love!
This is the gentlest of the lot, so great for beginners or those with more sensitive skin… but it still packs a punch and leaves your skin looking and feeling great.
Leave on for: up to 20 minutes. 10 minutes if you’re using for the first time.
All these products may tingle upon application, but if you feel any burning – wash it off! A patch test is recommended and of course, make sure to use an SPF afterwards as they can make your skin more sun sensitive.
