I love Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment but it's so expensive! Anyone have any less expensive dupes? How does it compare to Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash? Thanks!
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment Does this help with light scarring? I fell a couple weeks ago and my scraped chin has some light dark spots.
After trying a number of samples from subscription boxes, this and Proactive are the only two facial exfoliaters that don't make my sensitive skin break out. The price point is way different, though, so I've been using Proactive. Have any of you used both and have strong opinions about Exfolikate being a better option?

I have loved this forever! The only reason 4 stars is the price, $88 for 2oz or $185 for 5oz or $25 for 0.25 oz on Sephora currently. I remember way back when Sephora gave 3 free samples this used to be an option all the time and I'd stock up until I had enough to use for like a month. Back then I had really oily skin and breakouts. This was 1 of 2 samples I got from Sephora and then again 1 of 2 I got from Nordstrom so I was able to get 2 at once! (Which is good because despite looking at it it was one use.) Now I have super dry skin and was afraid to try it, but I really needed this! I know, even dry skin needs exfoliating and I'd been using AHAs carefully but I guess it wasn't doing the job because wow! My skin is still dry, but it's a lot less tight! Honestly my skin looked terrible after this, all my enlarged pores and post acne marks were really visible but I'm assuming it's because that dry, hard top layer of skin causing me so much grief was gone and by the next day I looked better. (Exfoliating at night is best for sensitive skin and I recommend that with this because a) sometimes skin can look a little red or worse like mine did, b) the sun is a problem after (make sure you wear sunscreen the next day!) and c) you can slather on a heavier moisturizer like I did. This isn't as gritty as I remember it being, though you can feel them as you rub it in, and is a strange grey color with a tinge of green. It has a heavy black licorice odor I don't care for, but it's gone once you rinse. I rub it in for 30 seconds and just leave on another 30 because I have sensitive skin (you can leave it for up to 2 minutes but I never do that). I feel a little flushed and tingling while using, but definitely spot test first and if it's really burning rinse immediately! I use once a week, and that's fine. It's amazing and makes my face so soft! The next day looks better again and I love so much! Ugh the price, will have to look for on sale and already planning to purchase at Sephora's next spring sale! Any dupes would be appreciated! I'm using Tula So Polished Exfoliating Sugar Scrub (2.9 oz) now that it's gone because it's convinced me to exfoliate better with my dry skin.

Love the Kate sommerville exfolikate. I do have sensitive skin so I only use 1x a week in the winter months. My skin feels so smooth after. It is on the expensive side but will last you several months. I recommend giving this a try if ur looking for a new exfoliating scrub. It contains glycolic acid which is a great for resurfacing ur skin. Give it a try !

LOVE THIS EXFOLIATING PRODUCT! I use this once in two weeks since it can be pretty strong. It has physical exfoliating beads in it which are very gentle and dissolves as you massage them on your skin.

This is the absolute, strongest chemical exfoliator I have ever used. It says leave it on for 2 minutes or less, I don't think I've ever made it the full 2 minutes. If your skin is a little tougher this is great to add to your routine. I use it about every week and a half. This is about the right time for my skin to not feel like I'm working my skin too hard, but I'm still getting benefits from it.

This stuff is AMAZEBALLS!! I've never used a exfoliating product before and I'm in love. I use it 2-3 times a week as directed and my skin is LOVING it!!! There is a slight tingle when you leave it on for a minute or two(as directed) but it's not too bad. If you have any open sores, popped pimples etc.. don't not use it until you've healed. It WILL burn. I would recommend this to anyone!

I've been in love with Kate Somerville since the day FFF sent me the Goat milk cream. Since then I have tried many products from this brand and have been beyond happy with all of them. This product is no exception. The first time I used exfolikate, I felt a burning sensation on the more sensitive parts of my face; I was prepared, as is says this may happen on the label and it is uo to the user how long to keep on from 30 seconds up to 120. Besides the burning feeling I have had only great effects from exfolikate. My pores are smaller, I have far less blackheads and my skin just feels so silky!

I am addicted to using this facial scrub/mask!!!! It’s so hard for me to find a comfortable exfoliator! My skin is dry and somewhat sensitive so anything that strips it of it’s natural oils makes my skin very dehydrated! Most of the facial scrubs I’ve tried so far contained clay which is the most drying ingredient you can use in your skin. Kate Somerville® ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

I don't know that it helps much with light scarring - it didn't do much for mine where I had stitches under my skin. You could certainly try it, maybe you have less scarring than I do. For light scarring, I would look for something that encourages rapid cell turnover, such as a strong retinol or prescription strength retin A.

Yes it is! It is one of the best exfoliators I have ever used...however, make sure you’re only using it 1-2 times a week to see good results. Using too often can harm your skin and create more problems than you’re solving...and using not enough won’t keep your skin fresh, soft and even!
