About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Kate Somerville Clinic To Go Pads

It's ironic that when I have so much access to amazing skin care products at the spa, how long it takes me to get around to actually using all of them! I had been recommending Kate Somerville's Clinic-To-Go Pads to several clients as of late for a few reasons. The main one is that I can actually let my pregnant & nursing clients who are having hormonal breakouts use them (rejoice as much of my AHA arsenal to treat acneic skin is off limits during this magical time.) Plus let's be honest- they are a busy *ahem* lazy person's dream.
So as I mentioned I had sent a couple of clients home with these pads & the other week my adorable hairdresser was in for her monthly facial. While looking at her skin under the loop, I observed a noticeable change in her skin. It was less inflamed, clearer & brighter - she went on & on about her adoration for the Clinic-To-Go Pads expressing shock that I hadn't tried them yet! So of course, that night I did. They could not be easier to use. The pad has a pocket to slip your fingers in a la finger puppet style.
Once on your fingers, you remove the tab & apply on clean, dry skin. You leave the solution on for around 2 minutes. Since I'm a rebel & exfoliate often I left it on for about 5 minutes. I then splashed my face with cool water & immediately felt a difference in my skin texture. Definitely impressive, as I mentioned I am the queen of exfoliation!
I double cleanse my skin every night to remove my make-up thoroughly. So while there might be a smidge of foundation on this used Clinic-To-Go Pad, the majority of discoloration is actually dead skin cells. The little line of black is a bit of remaining mascara, where I took the pad right up under my lower lash line, as I tend to get some clogged pores there. The Lactic acid contained in the pad is super gentle, yet very effective- so I could take this acid that close to the eye area. It's also a hydrating acid, which means it helps your skin retain water- which makes it beneficial for all skin types. I've been using these twice a week & I totally agree they're kind of genius.

I'm intrigued by this, it seems to be a very effective product. I should see if this is available at Sephora or KS online.

It's available at both websites, as well as QVC- however check for salons in your area. I always try to shop local as much as possible!
