    • This kit is a very good introduction of Kate Somerville to acne prone skin. Everything in the kit is effective. My favorite is the EradiKate and Oil free moisturizer.

    • This kit is great! I paid full price for this so this savings is fantastic. Nothing else works for the pimples I get... I don't have problematic skin , however, I do get crazy ones on my face when I'm stressed out and nothing else seems to work. Love this!!

    • This kit is really good for someone who wants to try Kate Somerville products and struggles with acne. I love this product because its gentle on my skin and it does a good job reducing redness and clearing my acne. I just simply love this kit.

    • I've used this kit in combination with the D-Scar treatment for a measely 3days now and let me tell you-AMAZING. I'm 24 with a 10yr history of acne & acne scars. This kit is gentle enough for my skin, but powerful!! I cannot use proactive or the popular acne treatments out there because it's so drying. After a few days I notice my oil is controlled, I am re-touching my powder SIGNIFICANTLY less throughout the day. My pigmentation marks have began to fade. The Pink treatment (EradiKate?) works so well on pimples. I noticed my pimples clearing up already! The acne exfoliator is amazing, it is not a scrub as I thought it would be...It was moisturizing surprisingly left me with glowing & soft skin that I've never had in my life. Very pleased with my results so far, I will definitely be re-purchasing.

    • I have been using this kit for about month.Detox Daily Cleanser feels really nice. Washes away all dirt. Also like the smell of ExfoliKate treatment. And it is not harsh on my skin.
      Ihad decided to order this after all these years spending time and money trying to find treatment that actually works. After the month using it I feel amazed. It works well on breakouts. Throughout the night it have done miracles.

    • I have had acne since I was 16 and thought I was just going to settle for a product line that helped it the best out of everything else i had tried. When I went to buy a topical treatment, a sales lady mentioned that a lot of people got great results from Kate Sommerville's line and after researching it, I decided to give it a try and after 3 days I have seen dramatic results and a lot less acne. I seriously went from all over my face to just 2 small ones in 3 days! I'm so glad I gave this a try!

    • I bought this kit for my 14 year old daughter who suffers from moderate acne. I kid you not, after two treatments I noticed a difference! I could see that the acne was reducing plus her skin looked radiant! The best part is that she motivated to use it because she saw immediate results!!! Yeah!

    • After about a year of playing with the Murad Acne line I had an awful breakout and decided enough was enough. I'd always heard rave reviews about Kate Somerville but was skeptical given my skin's tendency to hate everything I use. I was shocked to see that the cleanser and moisturizer calmed my skin down and my red marks and blemishes started to heal literally over night. I was put on Accutane as a 15 year old and while my skin remains pretty clear, I still get acne on my chin and occasional cysts at 22 and my post-acne hyperpigmentation, those stubborn red marks that pimples leave, usually stick around for at least a week after. The cleanser is great and not too drying for me to use 3 times a day (I use it after my mid-day workout) but is somehow still very effective and the moisturizer works but doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. The spot treatment helped but I wish they included trial sizes of the Anti-Bac lotion or Hydrating Acne Gel in this kit because I also need a topical treatment. I just tried the Exfolikate Acne and I really like it, left my skin feeling clean but not dry and the tingling effect made me feel like it was really working. A great kit especially for the price! But you may need another topical treatment as well depending on how bad your acne is.

    • I purchased this product because of my acne and oily skin and it was highly recommended to me by a couple friends; it was absolutely a great decision! The Daily Cleanser and Moisturizer made my face feel fresh and glow which was very different than past cleansers I have used. What was really satisfying was waking up with little to no pimples after putting on the EradiKate. I just put a couple dots on some aggravated pimples, and when I woke up they were gone! I strongly recommend this product for anyone who wants some change or is looking for a new acne solution

    • This is a great kit for those who suffer from breakouts. This is a great value since the Eradicate is $22 alone! I always have a bottle of this with me since it is great for taming breakouts. The other products are wonderful as well....

    • I have been using this product for the past 3 weeks. The first day when I used the detox and exfoliate my skin felt super soft. Over the weeks I started to see my skin clear up. I haven't had this great skin since I was young. The moisturizer is super light but still protects your face. The acne pink bottle works like a charm.

    • This kit is a must have! My friend recommended this kit to me because she had all her acne problems fixed by using this kit. I started to try this since last year and it works amazing! I have 90% of my annoying acne erased and my skin does look much brighter because I do not need to worry about the redness any more. Now I have less and less breakouts and this kit could fix all the problems. Just LOVE it!

    • I have tried everything for my acne. Im 29 years old and was hoping my acne would go away as i got older and especially after i had my daughter. Nope it didn't, if anything over the last few years it has gotten worse then ever, mainly around my chin and forehead. I ordered the Blemish Banisher Kit strictly because i don't like smells and cant handle products on my face that have any fragrance, so i didn't want to invest in full size products without smelling first. I even called the customer service number before ordering to ask how the products smell. The lady was very nice and explain that all the products in the kit were fragrance free and they only lightly smelled of the ingredients. Well she was right, there is a slight smell (different with each product) but not too bad and once the product dry's the smell goes away.
      It only took a couple of days of using the products for my face to dry out. After getting really dry all the spots cleared up. So far, 4 weeks in and no pimples or spots of any kind!!! I love the products from the kit so much that i just order full size products!!

    • Wonderful products, I especially liked the EradiKate product as it worked well overnight and was not strong smelling or stingy. I have sensitive skin that is often red after after using acne products, these products did not leave my skin red and kept breakouts at bay!

    • I have been battling with some adult acne for many years and this kit did wonders in clearing it up on my face and neck. It does dry out your face and the moisturizer doesn't take care of the dryness so I had to use another moisturizer in addition to the one in the kit. I must say though that my skin is clearer than it has been in a long time.

    • The combination of the products that come in this kit really are great. I love the detox daily cleanser and the oil free moisterizer the best in this kit but really all the products work amazing. I only wish that the kit would have larger items in the kit so I wouldn't need to have to purchase it as often.

    • I had used eradikate previously, and loved it. So when my skin reacted badly to a different skincare line, I purchased this kit to treat the blemishes. The cleanser is great! I typically prefer a foaming cleanser, but this works really well and you only need a small amount. The eradikate is great as always (though the sulfur smell is sometimes a bit much for me). The exfolikate is amazing! I saw a difference from the first use. I use it 2x per week and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I guess the oil free moisturizer would be nice for someone with oily skin, but it wasn't enough moisture for my dry skin and I quickly developed some dry patches when using it. I've replaced it with the goat milk moisturizer instead. Overall, a great value for products that really work.

    • im an oily t-zone with normal cheeks and this kit worked great with my skin type. i wear alot of makeup so i did a double cleanse before i exfoliated. he eradikate dryed everything up so make sure you moisturize intensely or you are going to get flaky skin. the cream was a good day cream but for night time i think you need something heavier.

    • Unfortunately this kit did not work for me. I love Kate Somerville products but this kit completely dried out my whole face. The products warn that the combination may cause some drying, so I stopped using some of them and my face still hasn't recovered. I think it's the cleanser itself.

      The sulfur really dries out the pimple, but it does not prevent breakouts and the pimple doesn't go down or go away, I found that it take a the same amount of time for it to go down and it just makes it harder to put concealer because the skin is so dry.

      The moisturizer I actually really like, unfortunately it does not help to combat the dryness from using the whole kit. I had to get another moisturizer to help bring moisture back to my skin. It's not even slightly oily by the end of the day and I can't wear my usual makeup because my sin is so dry. I've never had a problem with dry skin on my face.

      Individually I'm sure these products may work, but for me it was too much for my skin to handle. I used the kit for a few weeks and completely stopped all together almost a week ago. Still waiting for my skin to bounce back.

      But I still love Kate's products and will keep hunting for something. That works for this problem skin of mine..

    • Purchased the kit and so happy I did. This gives me a chance to try everything before I buy the full size bottles. I've been using over a week now and my skin is glowing, Acne is almost gone, and oh so soft. I will defiantly be buying the big bottles of all products.

    • I've never suffered from really bad acne, just the occasional breakout, but nothing too serious. However, when I moved from Miami, FL to LA I immediately began to breakout. Being an adult it was a little embarrassing having these painful little red bumps along my jawline. I also had a lot of black heads on my nose and chin. I tried just about everything and nothing worked. Some products did absolutely nothing and others made it worse. Then I started hearing great things about Kate Somerville. I stopped by a local retailer and picked up this kit. Best decision I ever made! They showed me how to use it and even gave me a free mini-facial. Let me start by saying the cleanser is great! It is gentle enough for sensitive skin but effective! ExfoliKate is amazing! It really keeps deep into your pores and eliminates all that nasty stuff! The lotion is light and didn't make my skin oily at all. But EradiKate has to be my favorite! I put a little on a red spot and just like that it's gone! I'm happy to say my acne is pretty much all gone! I get one or two pimples during that time of the month but it's nothing EradiKate can't handle ;). I plan on going to the Kate Somerville Clinic very soon for a facial as well! I will forever be a fan!

      I use it for breakouts here and there, but if I am careful to use all the steps 2x a day, it REALLY helps clear them up fast. It's good to have products I can rely on to perfect my skin.

    • I mainly bought this for the Eradikate, but I love the other products as well! The cleanser works great, doesn't dry your skin out and smells nice, the exfoliating treatment works wonders, and the moisturizer is hydrating and not greasy. What a great sampling! I will continue to try other kits, but will probably make this cleanser a staple!

It's also perfect for traveling or going to the gym. It's a great value because the items will last quite a while. All the products are very easy to use. It has made a noticeable difference with my breakouts.

    • What a great kit to try a variety of Kate's products! I'm just turning 50 but still have acne problems but concerned about anti-aging too. These products are the first ones that have helped control the acne without drying out my skin. The cleanser is deep cleansing without over-drying and love the ExfoliKate Acne formula. The EradiKate is perfect for those spot treatments and the oil-free moisturizer has been perfect without breaking out my skin. I've been struggling to find that good regimen with all the right components and will be buying more!!!!!

    • I am incredibly impressed with Kate's acne line. I recently stopped taking my low-dose birth control pills that I had been on for 7+ years (I'm 25), and my skin went insane, especially during 'that time of the month.' I didn't know what to do, and started trying every brand under the sun. Nothing was working for me, it only seemed to make my skin worse. I have combination-to-oily skin that is often dehydrated, and most acne products simply exacerbate that by initially drying my skin out, and then making it produce more and more oil, leading to more clogged pores.

      My skin feels so comfortable with this line--just silky smooth and balanced. I haven't used the EradiKate yet, as the issue with my skin is small, under the skin, congested/clogged pores that feel awful and look worse when you see them in the right light. I could see a difference immediately after using the ExfoliKate Acne, but am going to use it for longer before I write a full review (and compare it to my ExfoliKate Intensive sample).

      If you've tried everything out there and it hasn't worked, give this Kit a try along with Kate's Clarifying Toner (an important step if you have skin like mine).

    • This is how I began my obsession with Kate Somerville products! This kit! It's a great way to test out a few of her acne products. I use the cleanser every night after I have removed my makeup; The ExfoliKate Acne is one that I use once a week (I could do twice a week, but it's a small tube and I don't want to it run out yet!), and then the EradiKate is the sulfur treatment and I apply that with a Q-tip on trouble spots every night. The moisturizer is absolutely amazing and I use that every morning and night. I really recommend this kit for anyone who is sick of trying other brands and want to finally find a brand that WORKS and will save your skin! After using up this kit, I am going to buy the full sizes of all of these products.

    • I absolutely love the blemish banisher kit. I never had to battle acne in my teens but once I hit my twenties, I had a horrendous time trying to get rid of my new hormonal breakouts. I tried a ton of acne kits and they either dried my skin out terribly or just did not work. Kate Somerville's Kit not only contained the only products that helped to get rid of my breakouts overnight but it also smoothed out my complexion and made my skin super soft. I would recommend this kit to anyone suffering from breakouts.

    • I used this kit and there are some standouts. I actually didn't care much for the cleanser and the EradiKate. I felt as if the cleanser didn't do too much for my skin and wasn't intense enough. The EradiKate felt like it dried out the skin too much and didn't focus on getting rid of the blemish.

      I did enjoy the ExfoliKate quite a bit (it just feels great on the skin!) and it did have some Salicylic acid that felt a bit effective. Additionally, the moisturizer feels soothing and I rarely use moisturizers (my skin is very oily).

    • I first learned of Kate Somerville's products at a Beauty Trend show, after the trend show I tried the oil free moisturizer. I have always had a difficult time finding moisturizers since I truly have combination skin and my t-zone doesn't get oily until about 3 p.m. in the afternoon. The moisturizer worked! I had recently bought some other products and I couldn't justify spending the money on something when I had full size products so I passed.
      What a mistake, I kept thinking about the moisturizer and probably using more than my fair share of my prior product so I can justify spending the money on the moisturizer.

      When the time finally came to buy a new moisturizer, I was ready to make my full size purchase of the moisturizer but I thought I would navigate through the site to see if anything else caught my eye. I found the Blemish Banisher Kit and I figured I would give it a try.

      Here are my thoughts about each individual products:

      Moisturizer- since I already described my love affair with this product above, it is everything that I thought it was. Perfect for my combination skin and what I love is that I don't look like a greasy mess come 3 p.m. in the afternoon. Perfectly matte. Fabulous!

      EradiKate- I was scared to try this product. It said 10% sulfur and I was scared. Reluctantly I put it on my skin prior to going to bed and after my second night of using it I noticed a difference. My big blemishes were going down (dramatically) and now I'm a believer. Don't be scared, it works!

      ExfoliKate Gentle Acne Scrub- This stuff reinvents your skin in seconds. After using the product I noticed that my skin was softer and more willing to soak up the moisturizer after use. It is gentle and doesn't make your skin red or uncomfortable.

      Detox Cleanser- this cleanser is great. It does not over dry your skin or leave your skin feel stretched or that all the moisture has been drawn out. I really like this cleanser alot!

      I hope this review helps someone who is on the fence try all the products and a price that is affordable. That way you can decide what products would best for you and your skin.

      I feel like I have tried a million different products and so far I'm hooked on Kate Somerville. Very happy with these products so far!

    • (Note: This review is not on the products themselves, but the kit.)

      So I originally bought this kit trying to save a few dollars on my normal products - which I did. However, I ended up buying it again (in addition to the luxury size cleanser/moisturizer and normal exfolikate and eradikate) for the unexpected convenience. Everything is travel sized - which you can normally only find for the exfoliator. They pass TSA regulations and make packing super easy. I also love the kit though because it lets me keep a cleanser and exfoliator in the shower without breaking the bank or taking up too much space (I'm in college, I share a shower with three other girls so space is pretty limited). This has become my go-to regular buy! And since I would be buying the eradikate anyways (at $22), spending $30 more for three more products just makes sense (especially since the mini exfolikate is like $22 at Sephora anyways). Good price, highly convenient, definitely try it!

    • I just used this for the first time and I am already in love with all of these products. My skin felt so clean and tight in a good way after using it. I can totally tell that the sulfur spot treatment is going to work wonders!! Thank you so much for making a product that actually works!!

    • I just received this kit yesterday and used it for the first time last night. When I woke up this morning, I already noticed a big difference in the way my skin looked! It's much smoother, and the acne is much smaller. I will review again after 30 days, but right now, this kit seems like a keeper!

    • I purchased this kit about a year ago, and I am so happy I did!

      This kit offers a good preview of Kate's blemish-fighting products. The Exfolikate Acne is awesome; after I ran out of this one (which, if using only a couple times a week, will be a good 6 months), I purchased the regular Exfolikate, but I dare say I like the Acne fighting one better! I tend to have combination skin that is dryer and flakier in the winter, which is why I opted for the regular Exfolikate during repurchase.

      The Eradikate is AWESOME! It really helps with decreasing the swelling and unsightliness of major bumps. Cleansers aren't something that really thrill me, so this one was decent but nothing miraculous. The moisturizer is in the same boat; nice, effective, just nothing revolutionary.

      A great buy for someone wanting to treat their acne and explore a range of Kate's products!

    • I struggled with my adult acne since I was 26 (now 33). Have tried everything from OTC to Rx and nothing helped and all burned my skin and made things worse. I was absolutely desperate and saw this kit and thought, what the heck. I could not believe the instant results. It took about 2 wks to clear my face completely up but the pain I suffered every day and night was instantly gone! The burning sensation, the redness, the dryness, the irritation... and of course the unsightly blemishes. GONE! I have been using this regimen faithfully for almost a yr and my skin looks more beautiful than when I was a teenager. People actually think i was blessed with "good" skin. HA!

    • I've done it all in the quest for clear skin but this was product line that actually worked. My skin is the clearest it has been in over a decade and I could see results almost immediately. Now three months later, I'm still completely satisfied and will continue to use this skincare line for years to come. It's well worth the price.

    • I usually break out pretty bad around that special time of the month. I started using these products about 2 weeks before then, and noticed better skin. My breakouts weren't as 'ferocious' and lesser than normal. Excited to see what the next few weeks bring.

    • I purchased this kit to try a variety of items for acne. I love absolutely every item in this kit. Together, these items work as a team to banish or minimize acne/breakouts. I've noticed a difference in my skin since using this kit. In the winter, my face seemed a bit too dry, so I added the Oil Free Quench to this routine and it worked great.

    • I usually do not write product reviews but this kit is so amazing I just had to!
      Since I have been off hormonal birth control, my skin has been a mess to say the least. I purchased this kit in combination with the anti-bac lotion and the clarifying skin is softer and clearer than ever before!

    • I first bought this kit in order to try EradiKate, which has a cult following. Eradikate has turned out to be my favorite product in this kit, but I have seen such a difference in my skin that I am planning to continue to use all of the products in this kit. I have sensitive, combination skin with consistent breakouts on my cheeks and forehead. Within 3 days of using this kit, I saw a huge change in my skin. I have less acne and even the acne that I do have is smaller, less red, and disappears within 1-2 days. As soon as I feel a new pimple forming under the skin, I dab on EradiKate and it is shockingly gone overnight; amazing! My only complaint with this kit is the small size of the moisturizer. I ran out of the moisturizer within a few weeks, where as the other products lasted close to two months. The moisturizer is imperative, especially when you first start using this kit, so I would recommend a bigger size!

    • This kit has been a great intro to Kate's products for me. I have combination skin with hormonal acne on my chin and these products have really helped to balance my skin out. I definitely have more of a glow and have seen a reduction in pore size.
      I am giving the kit four stars because I wish the products could heal this persistent, stubborn neck breakout that I am experiencing faster, but my jawline acne has always been very tough!

      (Posted on 6/5/13) Review by Kristin
    • I have been using this kit for just a few days and already I see a difference! I have not had any more breakouts and the ones that I had are disappearing quickly. The moisturizer does not dry out my skin like other products have in the past. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone!

      (Posted on 6/1/13) Review by Stacy
    • I think this kit provides the best deal for what it has to offer. The first Blemish Banisher Kit I purchased lasted over 2 months, with the exception of the moisturizer. I repurchased this because I was running low on EradiKate and ExfoliKate. EradiKate itself is worth half of the price of the entire kit. This kit is awesome for acne-prone individuals or for those who want to maintain a good skin regime. Recommended!

    • I have horrible cystic acne on my chin. I have tried proactive and other multiple acne products however nothing has ever helped. I have only been using this product for 3 days and my skin feels better and looks healthier. I am so excited to keep using this product. It is lightweight and looks great under my make up.

    • I have struggled with acne for several years. I have tried proactiv, what seems like every acne product you can buy in the store, and have even seen several dermatologists, yet I still suffer from pretty severe acne on my chin. I decided to give these products a try and I am so glad I did. I haven't even been using these products for a week and I am already noticing a big difference in my skin appearance. The redness on my chin is fading, my cystic acne has shrunk, and my overall skin appearance looks a lot healthier. I will definitely be purchasing this product again.

    • I loved this kit. It was a great way to try the Kate Somerville line. I've been battling adult acne this year, and have taken all sorts of medications. And using expensive skin care lines! I decided to get off the medications and try this. My skin has remained clear. It seems to be evening out my complexion, as well. Great products!

    • I tried this and now I don't know how I will ever live without it. I suffer from really bad break outs and extremely oily skin, I used to exfoliate every day . . . . but with this system I only have to exfoliate once every week. On top of that my skin is int he best condition it's EVER been! I love these products!

    • At first I was interested in trying EradiKate, but when I found this kit, I decided to try the other products as well. This kit is really at a good price when you consider the cost of the products alone! The Eradikate and facewash work very well to prevent new pimples from popping up, but when I first started using this kit my skin was very dry and I do not think the moisturizer was enough to prevent the dryness. Additionally, the small jar the moisturizer comes in is sloppy. The moisturizer is my least favorite product in this kit. However, I really do plan on purchasing the full size face wash. It really helps to keep my oily skin less oily all day long, and leaves my face feeling clean. The exfoliator is also great at reducing redness. I recommend this product to anyone who is interested in trying Kate Somerville.

    • I can not believe i finally found a product that works, i have been struggling with acne for the last 6 years after i had my son, after trying everything from birth control, doxycycline, to every face cleaner out there, a friend of mine told me to try kate somerville products. I didn't listen to her for about 4 weeks then one day i decided to give kates products a try, and i have never been happier. My face is clearing up and not only that but my skin has never looked so soft and smooth. My boyfriend noticed and said i smile more and look happier. It is worth a try is what i tell all my friends, and give it a couple of weeks, i noticed the second week i had little red bumps on my face but they went away after 3 days, i figure it was just the products working all the dirt and makeup out that was deep in my pores. Oh and one more thing i LOVE the oil free moisturizer, i have oily skin and it takes all the oil away throughout the whole day.. Thank you Kate Somerville..

    • I bought this kit to see if I would like these products. So far, I really like the cleanser and the moisturizer. My skin has looked great. The EradiKate has helped. I only use it at night since you can see it when its applied. The moisturizer is really small. I didn't realize when i ordered it that it is only .5 fl oz. I plan to order more of the moisturizer.

    • I have been using the blemish banisher kit for one week so far and have seen a marked improvement in my skin. I tried proactiv and clearasil but neither of those seemed to have an effect, and in fact made my skin much worse by causing it to go into oil hyperdrive. I am 23 years old, so the teen remedies don't seem to do me any good. I will be sticking with Kate from now on. Make sure you are vigilant about using the Cleanser and Moisturizer every morning and night, and the EradiKate at least at night. It's not going to help if you sleep in your makeup routinely.

    • I have been using this kit for 9 days now, and so far so GREAT:) The products are super gentle on my sensitive skin, even the Eradikate (pink drying cream). I've tried at least 50 different skin care regimens in the last 5 years trying to find one that caters to my skin needs: sensitivity, occasional acne, prevention of fine lines and wrinkles. Looks like I may have found it here!
      The cleanser has a nice, fresh scent and doesn't leave my skin feeling tight at all like many cleansers do. I have only used the exfoliator twice but I like it very much. The pink formula I use at night on any large blemishes and it does reduce them significantly by the next morning. The moisturizer is nice and light, but I will need to purchase a slightly heavier one for my skin because it's not quite enough for me. I'm 27 and I have sensitive/acne prone skin.
      Since I've only been using it a little over a week I hope I continue to see results of clearer, brighter skin like I have already noticed. The ONLY reason I didn't give the kit 5 stars is because the moisturizer and exfoliator are tiny, but I do still think it's an overall good value for the quality of the products.

    • I have suffered from Adult Acne for most of my 20s. I had lovely clear skin with a few zits here and there in high school, then everything went crazy halfway through college. Over the years my acne has gone from pustules and breakouts around stress and the TOTM to deep cysts along the jawline and neck (classic adult acne zones) now that i'm in my late 20s.

      i'm almost tempted not to write review because the combination of these items are working so well! i don't want to jinx it! i tried another well known acne kit that also contained a sulfur spot treatment as part of the regimen in college, and had a horrible sensitive skin reaction to it. Kate's formula must be perfect for where my skin is at now in my life because the combination of the face wash with minimal salicylic in it, the scrub 2x a week with salicylic in it, and the sulfur treatment at night has dramatically improved my cysts and healed whiteheads lightening fast. The lotion is ultra gentle, incredibly light but hydrating for my flaky winter skin, absorbs fast, and leaves my skin feeling soft. Makeup goes over the lotion in the daytime like a dream.

      if you're concerned about having a reaction to the sulfur or the salicylic in the face wash, or feel that these haven't worked for you in the past, just try the kit out. I used to swear by benzyl peroxide and thought salicylic gave me cysts and i was too sensitive for sulfur treatments. i'm glad i gave these ingredients another try later in life since your skin needs and hormones do change over time. With this kit, i'm finally seeing improvement in my adult acne breakouts!

    • I had laser resurfacing surgery twice on my face a couple years ago now and ever since my skin has been going crazy with acne and lots of issues! Not to mention I can't seem to use the products I used to because my skin is more sensitive after the surgery. I have been searching for something to help me without making it worse.. And these products finally seem to be doing the trick! My skin is so soft after using this kit! My breakouts are getting better. I noticed the first time I used this. I definitely recommend this!

    • I decided to give this kit a try before starting accutane therapy from my dermatologist. The main selling point was that some of the users stated they noticed a change after only ONE use. I ordered my kit. The kit arrived in perfect condition with all elements just as specified.

      After one use of this regimen, I instantly felt the skin on my forehead, cheeks, around my mouth, and along jaw line tighten. My acne scarring and discoloration was so bad, I had dark red oozing sores on my face and deep crater like indentions. All sores were gone in 2 nights and it calmed the redness all over my face. The deep scars have almost all smoothed out after about 2 weeks. I've never experienced products like these. I have extremely sensitive, acne COVERED skin that most products hurt to cleanse with. NOT THESE!! I cannot tell you how this has changed my life. I know this isn't the MOST affordable brand, but its the only products I will ever use. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!

    • this is probably one of the best acne regimens EVER! I seriously recommend it ! The cleanser cleans your skin thoroughly without leaving it dry! The exfoliant leaves your skin soft and flake free without being too harsh! The moisturizer has a lovely soft feeling and absorbs really quickly! And last but certainly not least the spot treatment is the BEST part, it shrinks cystic acne and dries up whiteheads! overall great product!

I have tried basically every product on the market, including high end products (some of which cost more than twice the amount of the full sized Kate Sommerville products). Nothing has worked. I tried this kit and within two weeks even my most stubborn cystic acne is gone. My skin is glowing! The smell of the daily detox cleanser is refreshing and relaxing and the moisturizer does its job WITHOUT clogging my pores! I use these products every morning and night with my clarasonic and even my congested, oversized pored are shrinking! I am in love with these products! For the first time in my life, I look forward to cleansing my face. I will never be without these products! Thanks Kate!!!

    • Kate Somerville products are expensive and we all can appreciate that. It's hard to decide whether to bite the bullet and invest in such expensive skincare if you are unsure it will be successful. This kit is fabulous. I have oily, acne prone skin. This kit is performing better than my prescription acne topical medications. The cleanser is weird to get used to (and it falls deep into my clairisonic brushhead so I lose a lot of product) but it seems to be working well. The ExfoliKate Acne is PHENOMENAL and I cannot wait to get the full-size of this. The EradiKate isn't doing too much for my active breakouts, but that's okay. I believe it's sulfur based and I've never responded well to sulfur for acne. The oil-free moisturizer is TO DIE FOR and I also cannot wait to get the full-size of that. Overall, an excellent investment and you can really see what works for you and what doesn't. You would spend close $55 on these 4 items at Target or Walmart, it's worth a try!

    • I looove this kit. I get blackheads and whiteheads and then i get big cystic pimples and this works wonders for my skin. I've tried almost everything from neutrogena clean and clear, clearisil, and the clinique acne solutions andd the three step kit and nothing has seemed to work. I got this hoping and praying it would work and take my big cysts away. i got it last monday and i have to say i love it. the cleanser smells so good and cleans really well the exfoliator isnt too rough on your skin and the lotion is very moisturizing. but my favorite part in this kit is the eradikate. you put this on your big pimples at night and they are almost gone by morning and the redness is gone. by the third or fourth day you sleep with it on your pimple has disapeared! thank you so much kate I will repurchase forever!

    • I ordered this kit as a way to try out Kate's pricey products without committing to a large spend and then later finding out they didn't work. I had mostly good skin for the bulk of the last 10 years (after experiencing horrible breakouts as a teenager). Late this past summer, I tried another product line after a friend raved over it and it's become clear that it doesn't work for me. Anytime I go near it, I get several large pimples. It seemed to be a cycle now and I was looking for something to give me back my good skin as well as a "glow." This kit is it. I've been using it for a week now with no problems. The break outs-- even the monthly break out-- has stopped, my skin is glowing (yes, even after a week of use) and I'm sold on the line.
