25th March and I am a year older. And what better way to celebrate that advancing age than a free trial offer of Kate Sommerville products from Lane Crawford (HKG). Caroline Hirons swears by Kate, so win-win. The Goat Milk moisturiser was the only thing I bought, but at 50% off. This is the HOLY GRAIL for a lot of women out there, but I am meh! It’s too greasy for me and a wee bit grainy. The Lactic Acid moisturiser feels exactly how my face used to feel when my mom used to apply a thin layer of fresh milk cream on my face when I was a kid.
Difficult to describe. Try it in your kitchen one day and let me know. I prefer my Bobbi Brown Extra Repair.
The packaging ROCKS though ! Its a Jar yes, but its sealed and only dispenses as you press down on the seal. Paula Begoun should be pleased. ALL JAR packaging should be like this from now on.
My favourite Kate Sommerville is ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. I love it ! Instant clearing up. Especially for skin that looks rough and bumpy. Ugh I hate that. This works so well. A definite re-purchase !
Green-roughish texture. Smells herbal. Damp skin, rub for 30 secs and then leave on for 1-2 mins. No plastic microbeads !
Dermal Quench Liquid Lift I am not sure about.People swear by this one. The Oxygen is pumped into your face and works against wrinkles and lines. But then I also understand something like this needs regular use.
I am noticing fine lines around my lips/mouth so I am thinking of buying the full size and using it regularly to see what happens.
It dispenses a foam that you massage in. Avoid Eyes and Mouth it says. I was irresponsible and sprayed it near my lid and it burned. No visible reaction but it did burn!
My verdict on Kate is I need to use her products more regularly to have a clearer and a more educated opinion. Her Line Release under eye cream is also the other thing I want to try out.
