My Skin Care Routine With Kate Somerville
As you guys know, for the past year or two, I have been very loyal to the skincare line Caudelie. It’s an all natural skincare line, that has honestly been so good to me. My entire life, up until now, I have never had any major skin care problems. Yet I always made sure to take great care of my skin and had a set beauty regimen. I preferred skin care products that were clean, light and helped prepare my skin for aging.
Somewhere in the past 6 months though, my skin started changing. I don’t know how to explain it, but my skin just never seemed moisturized. It didn’t look, nor feel clean and I just always looked tired. My skin wasn’t looking at tight as it had my entire life and my pores were bigger than they had every been before. The worst part, I was starting to notice fine lines in my forehead and crows feet near my eyes. Literally, I started freaking out because I am so scared of getting wrinkles. After doing a lot of research, and reading probably a million articles on skin care, the one common denominator I found amongst most articles was that, at 25, your skins changes. Meaning that the beauty regimen you once used, in your early twenties, might not be enough anymore because at 25 you start showing signs of aging.
So I went to Nordstrom’s with my options open for a new skin care line. I had a few brands in mind, but I wasn’t sold on anything quite yet. Long story short, I spent 2 hours in Nordstrom’s testing different products and learning about different skincare lines. Like I wan
In the end, I decided to go with Kate Somerville!
** Note, before I get into my obsession with this brand, this is not a sponsored post. I am just kind of in love with this product and had to share it with you all.
Cause ya’ll my peeps.
And you guys, my skin has never been better. I noticed a difference, literally after one day and now after two months of use, my skin is noticeably tighter, firmer and has not been dried out once. I mean I could rave about these products all day. Hence why this post is so long!
So if your 25 – 30 and you’ve noticed your skin changing, then keep reading! This post is for you. Below is exactly what I have been using and why I love them so much.
As of right now, I’m using the sample version of this product which is actually really big and has lasted me almost two months. This cleanser is an exfoliator that helps with dark spots and leaves my skin with glowing and radiant complexion. I use this cleanser with my Foreo every morning and night.
This Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment Serum I use every single morning. After I exfoliate, I apply this Liquid Lift (which is foam based) directly to my face, neck and chest. Meaning I literally spray it directly on my skin and then rub it in as opposed to on my hands first. Let me tell you, this product, in an instant, reduces my pores, tightens my skin. It’s freaking incredible. It’s also great because it helps lock in moisture for throughout the day. It’s almost like a mini face lift every morning. I’ve also noticed it helps with swelling! It just really prepares my face for the day.
My favorite part of my night time regimen. Essentially, this product is the same as the one above, but the difference is that it has retinol in it. According to Kate Somerville, “Retinol has the power to transform your skin—it firms, smooths, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles”. It’s basically a powerful antiaging booster that helps diminish the signs of wrinkles, repairs the skin and helps to produce collagen. Just like the Day time Liquid Lift, I apply it straight to my skin after exfoliating. I truly believe that this is the product that has done the most for my skin. It basically works all night long and leaves my skin looking amazing and glowing when I wake up.
After I apply my liquid lift serums, I apply this firming eye cream, which like above also has retinol in it. As of right now, I have only been using the sample I was given, but as soon as I run out I am ordering more! Someone once told me that the answer to forever looking young, is to take care of you eyes. Which I 100% agree with. When I started noticing the crows feet in my eyes and how tired I looked, is when I really started to worry. Your eyes tell it all. This product has done wonders for mine. This Firming Eye Cream I use Day & Night and apply it everywhere from under my eyes to right under my brows. It’s also done wonders for my dark circles! Which is heaven sent because my dark circles are real y’all.
Then last but not least, the mother of all Anti Aging Moisturizers. This moisturizer leaves my skin feeling ridiculously radiant and is designed to help fight signs of aging, delivering a younger-looking and rejuvenated complexion. I personally love the application method because it gives you the perfect portion every time. As soon as I apply it to my face, neck and chest, I can feel it locking in moisture. This is a Day/Night cream, but note it does not have any SPF in it, so to make sure I am getting the right amount of coverage, I have been using this tinted moisturizer with SPF 20!
Lets talk about price.
This stuff is not cheap y’all, I know that. At the same time though, when it comes to where I save and where I splurge, my skin care does not fall in the saving department. I definitely justify splurging on my skin. That’s just me though. I’m also not telling you to drop $500 on a skin care line you have never used lol. My advice is to do what I did. Find your biggest problem. For example, mine was signs of aging and dryer skin. So I started with the Moisturize and asked for a million samples with it. Then eventually got the Liquid + Lift Retinol, then a few weeks later got my day time one and so on and so on.
