If it’s good enough for Meghan Markle, it’s good enough for me. That was my first thought when I started using Kate Somerville products a few years ago. The Duchess of Sussex, as well as List A celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, have been fans of the brand’s offerings and founder of aesthetics all these years – and for good reason.
For those unfamiliar, Kate Somerville started out as a skin care studio in Hollywood, California. Somerville, a beautician, served several celebrity clients and eventually created her own skin care line in 2005. Today, mMost of Kate Somerville’s products reflect the treatments of her clinic. This means that they are generally very solid in their compositions. In addition, many focus uniquely on exfoliating and hydrating the skin to increase its radiance and radiance.
