Kate Sommerville is very well known in Hollywood as an esthetician to the stars (Anna Paquin, Katherine Heigl, Jessica Alba, Debra Messing, Kate Walsh, etc) and has a skincare studio in Los Angeles. Her products are considered top of the line and she has put many years into research and development. She didn’t always have picture perfect skin. She had cystic acne and bad eczema. I think that makes me appreciate her more. She has a story, worked on a building her brand and can show you that with consistent use of products, she can clear up skin issues. Including her own.
I recently purchased her Ageless Solutions Kit. It comes with a cleanser, exfoliant (probably my favorite out of the products), a moisturizer and eye treatment. I paid $75.00 for this product, at Sephora. The retail value of the kit is valued at $120.00. I think that its a great kit for anyone interested in using her product line.
The cleanser smells amazing and has a great lather. It has lavender and sage to soothe the skin and is formulated to remove makeup and help clean the pores. I am able to use this with my Clarisonic, with no problems.
The Exfolikate is hands down my favorite product. Ingredients like pumpkin, papaya and pineapple enzymes smooth my skin to perfection. Aloe Vera and Honey soothe, while Salicylic Acid help with balancing hydration. It also helps with lines and wrinkles. You can gently rub this product into the skin and let sit on skin for up to two minutes. She also has other versions of Exfolikate for sensitive and acne skin types.
The Cyto-Cell Dermal Energizing Treatment is definitely advanced skincare. It features Peptide P-199, Shea Butter, Lavender, Geranium and Bergamot. If you were like me and you heard Peptide P-199, you might have found yourself going ?????? Peptide P-199 is a synthetic peptide that stimulates stem cell activity and restores the skin with new, energized cells. This moisturizer leaves my skin feeling refreshed and I have no problems with it being too oily for me to use. I can use this AM/PM.
The Cyto-Cell Dark Circle Corrective Eye Cream does what most eye creams do. It helps get rid of puffy eyes, dark circles and helps with fine lines. This product also contains the Peptide P-199, as well as a slew of other ingredients such as Vitamin C, a Milk Peptide Complex and Eyeseryl, which is what helps with getting rid of puffiness and dark circles.
The products included in this kit are pretty small. I’d guess I might get a months worth of use out of them if I’m really stingy with the amount I’m using. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing though. The products included in this kit are not the cheapest, so this allows me to try them out first at a much, much cheaper price. Four weeks is a great amount of time to see if you notice any change in your skin. I am not sure which products I will repurchase yet, but I know that I will be looking into more products in her line. I am very pleased with the results so far and will continue to use my kit until it’s gone.
