Try It Tuesday | Kate Somerville Exfolikate



I've been testing out the Kate Somerville Exfolikate for a while now and I'm going to be honest, the jury is still out! 



Here's the product details from Sephora's website;

What it is:
A dual-action exfoliator that smooths and polishes to reveal a glowing, radiant complexion in as little as one use.  
Solutions for:
- Dullness/uneven texture
- Pores
- Dark spots/uneven skin tone 
 What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates  
What else you need to know:
When you use ExfoliKate in the shower, the steam will help to activate the enzymes, making it even more effective.

 

Here's what I think:
Smell-Kinda smells like Christmas! Cinnamonish and warm. Which isn't a bad thing, but it's not my fave scent on my face.
Feeling-It kind of stings on your face as you circle it around. Which feels good, but hurts a little (in a good way). 
How I use-I like to massage it in and around-focusing on my really dry spots (which is everywhere at this point!) and then letting it sit for about 5 minutes or so. Then I rinse with warm water or a makeup wipe (cause let's face it, I'm lazy #lazygirlprobs) and then I either do a sheet mask or moisturize right away
How often I use-twice a week! 
Will I continue to use? Yeah, I definitely see a difference in my skin right after using and even the next day. It is on the pricey side, so I'm not sure I will repurchase (full disclosure; mine came in my winter FabFitFun box) I'll keep you posted on if it becomes a holy grail or not!
