After desperately trying to find a new daily skin care regimen that I didn’t have to drop $80 on, I settled last week with Kate Somerville’s Detox Daily Cleanser. Originally I was wanting to purchase the ExfoliKate Cleanser but Sephora didn’t carry it at the location I was at. Instead I was intrigued with the Detox Daily Cleanser, one of the KS products they did carry.
I quickly checked out reviews and found that people seem to equally rave about both products. Three minutes and $38 later, I purchased my first KS product. As they say, the rest is history!
I am in love with this cleanser. IN LOVE. Did I say in love? I’ve been using it for a little over a week and I’ve noticed enough improvements in my skin to want to keep using it. The first thing you notice is the soft gel texture, which makes your hands feel like satin when you’re done washing. You will also notice its distinct smell, which I will describe as grapefruit, cardamom (or maybe nutmeg), and green tea. The smell is not overbearing but rather very subtle and nice.
This particular cleanser doesn’t lather much, but it does just enough to get the job done. On a lather scale of 1 – 10, you’re looking at a 5. It boasts many excellent ingredients which you can read about on the KS website. I’ll put the link at the end of this review.
So what are the main things I noticed while using this? My skin appears so bright and fresh after washing, and my acne has calmed down quite a bit after using this (nothing new has popped up). It seems to help treat acne by detoxifying the skin, and also brightens the skin by exfoliating it. This cleanser leaves my complexion with an even tone, eliminating the redness and leaving my skin feeling moisturized. The gel doesn’t dry your skin out whatsoever, which I love!
I would most definitely recommend this product to anyone with combination skin, and that even goes for my besties. And pssssst! If you head over to the Kate Somerville website, you can get 10% off your first order, 3 free samples with every order, AND (yes there’s more) free shipping over $50!
