This ExfoliKate face exfoliate from the KATE SOMERVILLE line has made just about every Top 10 list I have seen so I was super excited to try it. Besides having mass appeal (it’s good for all skin types), this one uses super good ingredients to do the exfoliating and it’s a two-fold-er – you have the physical microbeads and the chemical of fruit enzymes (the 3 p’s of papaya, pineapple and pumpkin). So if you don’t feel you are giving yourself and every inch of your face the full scrubbing, the chemical in this one will help. Why isn't every exfoliator like this?
Also inside is Salicylic Acid for hydration as well rosewood and cinnamon extracts for its anti-aging properties as well as aloe vera, honey, and vitamin E. Don’t let the brightish green color or slight minty feel on the skin turn you off as I was mildly shocked at both traits but quickly warmed up to them after a few uses.
Yes, this one is a little on the expensive side but consider it one of those investment products. For me, one of mine is Kiss Me Mascara every few months @ $24 and a few others I know I just can't live without!
Overall I’d give it a B+ and not an A only because of the price of $85/2oz, $175/5oz @ sephora.com.
