Putting Exfolikate to the test was simple. After a cold, wet Seattle Winter, my calves are positively parched. I don’t want to gross you out with the details, but the skin was parched, and large dry flakes were hanging off everywhere! In short, my legs needed a miracle.
Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate
Knowing I’d be baring them soon, I needed to take extreme measures. No moisturizer alone seemed to be helping, so when it came time for me to test out Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, I knew exactly how to put it to the test. I applied a healthy helping of ExfoliKate on each calf, and massaged it into the skin. Then, I let it sit on the legs for a two minutes as directed while I continued with my evening cleansing routine. Finally, I removed the product gently with a washcloth.
The result—and I’m not exaggerating—was silky smooth legs that looked the way skin was intended to look. Best of all is that these positive results have lasted. A week later, my skin remains smooth and healthy. I love sharing miracle products with you, dear readers, and ExfoliKate is a miracle.
ExfoliKate is truly a multi-tasking product. It’s both a physical and chemical exfoliant, so on my face (which is an amalgam of rosacea, dryness and oilness all at once) it can treat everything! On my oily, congested t-zone, I massage the product in gently using small circles. On my sensitive, red cheeks, I barely rub it in at all and simply allow the chemicals to work their magic.
The pricetag is (yikes) $85 for a 2 oz. tube.
Is Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate worth this hefty price? You betcha. But, if you’re scared to take the plunge, be sure to hit a Kate Somerville counter at Nordstrom and grab a few samples first. Test the product on the area that needs it most, regardless of where it might be. Then you’ll be convinced!
