Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate Intense Exfoliating Treatment Review

For me and my transition from a tomboyish teen to a ultra femme woman, great skin is a staple part of my success. There is nothing like the ability as a transgender woman to wake up and walk out the house with no make up on and still be seen and addressed as the woman you are. Two essential things in my life help me to achieve that ability: laser hair removal/ electrolysis and an effective skin care regiment. I discuss my full skin care regiment here. Although It work for me, I am always tweaking it to make it even better. From years of shaving in my early transition, I had some discoloration from ingrown hair bumps that left the right side of my face(slightly above the jawline and slight below). In that area is some scars and some redness. The area is small so must people don't notice, but because it is MY face I notice. Al though electrolysis, stop the area from getting worst, there was still a little bit of scarring. I was looking for something that would exfoliate and reduce the appearance of the area. One of the product that I tried and love is Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate Intense Exfoliating Treatment. This product is absolutely wonderful. This is not your typical over-the-counter treatment. This is a spa in tube. The difference is immediately apparent from the smell to the feel. The granules are small so it exfoliates softly without that harsh rocky feeling that some scrubs give. When I first put it on my wet face, I feel a tingling sensation. I love to too feel a tingle. That tingle lets me know that something is working. The tingle is from the papaya, pineapple, and pumpkin enzymes in the product. While the granules physically scrub the dead skin cell off your face, the enzymes do that chemically leaving your skin less dull and vibrant. Once I rinsed my face after letting the treatment sit for a 3 minutes. The directions say leave on for 30 second but I got to yapping with a girlfriend on the phone and you know how that goes…lol. After patting dry, there was some slight redness immediately after that lasted for maybe 10 minutes. After that 10 minute though, the redness went away and beautiful glowing skin immersed. That discoloration was less noticeable even after one treatment. So I give this product 5 out of 5 stars. I love when a product does what its says it will do and totally exceeds my expectations. That is exactly hat Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate did for me. It is a little pricey but well worth it. I totally recommend you try it in a smaller size. Once you love it which im sure you will, buy the bigger size
