Review: Kate Somerville Facial

Alrighty loyal readers, I am back! Sorry for the slight delay in updates- I have been super busy at work and seriously have been avoiding the computer because I've been so tired when I get home!

Some people have been emailing me asking for more hair and makeup reviews so I thought I would share my experience at Kate Somerville 2 weeks ago. I got the "Kate Somerville Signature Facial" with Jill and it was wonderful! She was super nice and did a great job- my skin was glowing when I left. I am trying to get a facial every 4-6 weeks until the wedding (only 4.5 months away!) and would highly recommend Kate Somerville to anyone in the LA area. For all you True Blood fans I ran into Anna Paquin while I was there!

Waiting area- gorgeous decor!

The decor is very tranquil and really sets the mood.

Facial rooms are decorated in shades of white.

Some products that I would recommend are the Gentle Daily Wash, the Nourish Daily Moisturizer and the ExfoliKate. She also used the Mineral Mud Mask on me and I really liked it but didn't purchase it this time.

As far as other skin care products, I swear by Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash (either the green or pink tube versions) and Josie Maran Argan Oil- I use these two products at night and the Kate Somerville cleanser and moisturizer during the day... I also use the ExfoliKate 2-3 times a week and my Clarisonic brush 3-4 times a week.

Hope you all are enjoying your week- I know the LA weather has been a great pick me up!

Wish I lived in the LA area to try a facial there. ExfoliKate is on my to buy list as soon as I'm done with my current one.

I love ExfoliKate, I get mine at Sephora. They have a gentler version but I haven't tried it. What do you do with your Argan oil? I have some and I am not sure what to do with it? Thanks!

I love ExfoliKate! I get mine at Sephora. They have a gentler version too but I have need to try that one. Also, I have Josie's Argan oil, what exactly do you do with it? Thanks!

Hi Nicole!

Thank you for the great review! I have been eyeing up Kate Somerville products for a while now. I love my clairsonic facial brush as well!

Do you have any recommendations for foundation and/or concealor? I am also looking for a nice blush, highlighter and brozer. I'd love to hear your recommendations!

Hi Nicole,

Great post! Do you still use the creme de la mer products as well? Do you prefer the la mer or Kate Somerville products? Just wondering since you always have great skin in your posts.
