A while back I was gifted some trial sizes of Kate Somerville facial products and I fell in love. I adore the cleanser and the moisturizer and use them faithfully. Um, they smell delicious and they leave my skin smooth, happy and well-hydrated.
Well, as a HUGE fan of all-things-eye-cream related I tried Kate Somerville’s Line Release Under Eye Repair Cream in the sample size.
I have dry skin. It glided on around my eye-area and I fell in love. And I look 20 years younger. This means I look 2 years old. (Joke.)
So then, after 3 days of using the sample I went to sephora to order some.
Before kids, that would have been IN MY CART and ON MY EYES faster than you could find your sephora.com username and password.
Now? Um. Not so much. $125 is far less than what I just spent out-of-pocket on 2 pediatrician appointments, 6 prescriptions and one ear nose and throat specialist visit in the past 4 days.
Truth? I totally would have rather spent my money on eye cream.
Speaking of face stuff, I also really love California Baby’s Calendula Cream. I use it as moisturizer. (I have super-dry skin.) It smells amazing and it doesn’t have ANY synthetic ANYTHING in it.
I also put it on any skin issues the girls have — rashes, red spots, dry spots — you name it. Bottom line? This moisturizer is a bandaid in a jar. Love it.
And guess what? It’s not $125. It’s $13.74 on Amazon.
**Nope, I don’t get compensated for my product endorsements. But I’d like to. So, someone let Kate Somerville know, um-kay?
