Kate Somerville's medi-skin clinic in California is the go-to place for many celebrity's skin care needs. I have had some trouble finding much background information on her but I did find some other interesting things. From her clinic website: "Skin Health Experts Medical Corporation is overseen by Medical Director Dr. Danny Farahmandian, and all medi-based services are performed by Nurse Practitioners and Registered Nurses. Esthetic services are performed by certified estheticians, overseen and trained by Kate Somerville."
I was happy to receive a sample of this exfoliator. I had admired the packaging for some time. As I've mentioned, I am a sucker for packaging and advertising. This simple, clean, design manages to still give a feminine feel. Not to mention the cute name for this product.
I was surprised when I saw the product which looks like a bright green mud. Unlike most exfoliators I've used, there aren't visible scrubbing beads. You apply a thin layer on your face and massage in for 30 seconds. Then you let it sit for 2 minutes and let the enzymes work. The feeling is pretty great. It doesn't sting but it feels like it's doing something. After 2 minutes, you rinse it off and use your normal moisturizer. I have say, I think it's pretty fantastic. I like that it does more than just slough off dead skin with harsh beads. It makes your skin feel super soft and hydrated. They warn that it can cause redness for up to 20 minutes due to increased circulation so I use it at night but I've never had a problem. Adding this to your skin care routine once or twice a week can really give a boost to dull, damaged skin.
