The VIP (Very Impressive Product) Pick of the Week #2
Posted 02/03/11 at 01:07PM by Audrey Fine
The Product: Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Acne
The Price: $65
The Promise: The treatment is designed to effectively and gently exfoliate, detoxify and clarify acne prone skin -- without irritation.
The Ingredients: Among its key ingredients the product boasts 0.5 percent salicylic acid (to decrease oil production and fight acne), phytic acid (to brighten and control sebum production), tea tree oil (as an antiseptic and skin healer), and lactic and glycolic acid (to gently remove dead skin cells).
The Real Deal: This is the third generation of ExfoliKate and it's by far the most gentle; it's less grainy which is not only better for acne-prone skin but is much less irritating to my reactive skin. I use it twice a week as directed and the next day, like clockwork, people comment on how smooth and healthy my skin looks. It really makes it glow! Plus, I love the tea tree oil smell.
The Upshot: Based on the results I've had, I'll definitely keep using it and will recommend it to friends (and readers)!
