Kate Somerville Oil-Free Moisturizer Review
Kate Somerville's Oil-Free Moisturizer provides intense hydration to the surface of your skin, while also working to improve skin's elasticity and fight the signs of aging. It contains no oils, parabens or fragrances, so it is gentle enough for sensitive skin and won't clog pores. It is a lightweight formula that contains a unique blend of ingredients including Pepha®-Tight, Sepilift™ and Red Marine Algae. Pepha-Tight tones and hydrates the skin while working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sepilift™ helps to firm and smooth skin, and Red Marine Algae has powerful amino acids that encourage collagen production and improve skin's elasticity. The moisturizer is designed to absorb excess oil and reflect light, so your complexion is left looking youthful and luminous.
You can purchase Kate Somerville Oil-Free Moisturizer on Sephora.com or Skinstore.com for $65.
We give Kate Somerville's Oil-Free Moisturizer a B+ because it incorporates moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients that help to improve the overall tone and texture of your skin. If you have extremely dry skin, you may need more hydration, but, otherwise, this is a great moisturizer for all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin since it doesn’t contain oil, fragrance or dye. That said, we had to deduct some points because it is extremely expensive and because it doesn’t contain as many beneficial ingredients as the marketing would have you believe.
Kate Somerville's Oil-Free Moisturizer gets very good feedback from customers on Sephora (4.3/5 out of 129 reviews) and on QVC.com (4.9/5 out of 32 reviews). However, Paula Begoun, a skincare and cosmetics expert who conducts reviews on products using scientific research, didn't think this was a great product, especially considering how expensive it is. She says it would be better if Kate Somerville included some potent antioxidants and at least 1 or 2 cell-communicating ingredients. She also claims that the tightening and toning effects are due to the amount of a "film-forming agent (think hairspray type ingredient) in the moisturizer but that isn't the best for skin". In most of the reviews I saw, customers were happy with the product but complained about the cost. If you are already a fan of Kate Somerville, you should definitely give it a try, but, otherwise, you can probably get the same or better results from a less expensive brand.
