CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH KATE SOMERVILLE
Kate Somerville’s effective formulas are tech-forward, rich in botanicals and kind to skin. It’s easy to see why the brand has become a firm favourite among industry insiders and A-listers such as Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson.
From plumping cleansers, to gentle exfoliators, Kate Somerville has something for everyone, but especially those seeking a brighter complexion.
Their Goat Milk Moisturizing Cleanser gently removes dirt and make-up without any irritation or stripping, while their ExfoliKate® Exfoliating Treatment reveals smoother pores and DeliKate® Recovery Cream is a great remedy for dull, dry winter skin. All three are deemed essential additions to your regime at this time of year, as they work so well in tandem.
Keen to give one or all three a go? Here we break down how they work, the easiest way to use them, and why they’re so effective…
DeliKate® Recovery Cream, £69
BEST FOR: Stressed Out Complexions
HOW TO USE: Created to soothe redness and bring instant relief to skin prone to irritation, this fragrance-free cream strengthens and softens at speed. A mix of peptides, ceramides and fruit extracts come together to lock in hydration, while also boosting your skin’s plumpness and elasticity. Experts love it for its ability to keep the ‘good stuff’ in and the ‘bad stuff out.’ Plus, it’s non-greasy, so it makes for a great primer and never interferes with any make-up you apply over the top.
Goat Milk Moistruizing Cleanser, £32
BEST FOR: Sensitive, Dry Skin
HOW TO USE: This silky cleanser remains a brand bestseller, and is designed to moisturise, while simultaneously removing make-up and grime. Plus, if you suffer from excess sensitivity, your skin won’t break out in a rash or irritation thanks to a constant supply of hydration. Brimming with milk proteins, manuka honey and avocado oils, just a small amount is enough to glide over the skin, melting away all traces of dirt, leaving behind a veil of moisture that lasts long after you’ve rinsed it off.
ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, £72
BEST FOR: Boosting Dullness & Uneven Tone
HOW TO USE: Dubbed ‘The 2-Minute Hollywood Facial’, this dual-action exfoliator offers instant results, thanks to a potent blend of papaya, pineapple and pumpkin enzymes. All three ingredients work to gently remove dead cells and skin, revealing a smoother surface and brighter appearance, too. It’s also brimming with aloe vera, antibacterial honey and antioxidant vitamin E to soften and calm any potential irritation. Massage it into your skin for 30 seconds, before leaving it on for up to two minutes – you’ll be impressed with the speedy glow that follows. Stick to using it just once or twice a week to avoid unbalancing your skin.
