    • I was given the Exfolikate Intensive treatment as a sample and found it too harsh for my sensitive skin. I decided to buy the gentle exfoliator since the intense was too harsh. This product makes my skin so smooth and does a great job exfoliating. I keep mine in the shower and use it there twice a week and it does a wonderful job!

    • I received a sample with the purchase of Exfolikate (regular). It's similar to the other one but my skin reacted more to this one (redness) so I will continue to use and buy the other version that I love sooo much! but this product give amazing results too, just too strong for my skin even if it's the gentle version. it might be perfect for someone else. Worth trying to find out which Exfolikate is the best for you.

    • I got this as a sample. I have to say it does everything it promises. I have dead skin cells from past acne breakouts. On just one try, I can tell the difference in skin texture in those area. I will ordering a bottle for myself.

    • Exfolikate Gentle is the addition to my Kate Somerville routine. I have sensitive skin so I'm always cautious about products. This one proved correct what I had been told--that it was gentle but also effective. I love the feel. I've started exfoliating now twice a week, and may bump it up to three times. I'm very happy with this purchase.

      (Posted on 7/25/14) Review by Leslee
    • This is by far the best exfoliating treatment out there! It feels like a thousand pearls against your skin but it really does remove all the makeup and oil build up. I've been using this product for over a year and recently just bought one for my 72 year old grand mother whom is indeed falling in love with this product as well!

      (Posted on 7/14/14) Review by Brenda
    • I chose this product as one of my three samples on my last order. It is very nice. Soon, I'd like to order the full size of this product. I'm not overly fond of the seaweed type of smell, but I love the fine sand-like exfoliation - it seems incredibly gentle on my skin, yet it does an excellent job.

    • When I purchased the Exfolikate, I assumed it would be good as I love all Kate's other products. But not the case with Exfolikate ... it's even better than any product I've used of Kate's. I use it every other day but just read that you can use it with the cleanser to boost the cell turnover, which I can't wait to try! I've re-ordered it many times as I can't be with out it or the Quench . Huge fan of both. They have made such a difference in my skin.

    • I have very sensitive skin and my face typically gets red and irritated by the beads in exfoliating treatments. Someone introduced me to ExfoliKate and I hesitated to try it, I tried it on the inside of my wrist and my skin was surprisingly not irritated. I used it on my face and was pleasantly surprised. I didn't get red or itchy and instead my skin was silky and soft. After the first use I bought the product and use it 2-3 times per week. My skin looks better and all of my friends and family and even co-workers comment!

    • I received my free samples and this was one of the samples I receive. This was just the kind of exfoliator I needed. Its effective but still gentle to the skin. I love the scent...its very soothing. I would definately encourage anyone to try this. You will love it!

    • I don't usually go for physical exfoliation, but this exfoliator is the only exception that I make. I was sensitive to the regular exfolikate and found that this version is just what the doctor ordered! I experience no sensitivity when I use it.. just smooth, soft skin!

      (Posted on 6/18/14) Review by andrea
    • This product is fantastic. I have extremely sensitive skin and scrubs that are too harsh can cause breakouts. This eliminated my dry patches without any complications. It makes me skin so soft and smooth.

    • If you have sensitive skin, and you've heard all of the great buzz about the regular "Exfolikate," you might be feeling a little left out of all the glow. But worry not, because Kate Somerville created "Exfolikate Gentle" just for you!
      I have rosacea and eczema, and yet, I still want the glowing skin benefits that Exfolikate brings, so the great thing about Exfolikate Gentle is that you get all the great results, just designed for sensitive skin. I can use it several times per week, and my skin tolerates it well. It still works quickly, easily, and gently. So, get ready to GLOW sensitive gals!

    • I normally use the regular Kate Somerville Exfolikate, but received a sample with my last purchase of the gentle treatment. I have rosacea and noticed that the Exfolikate Gentle was less harsh on my skin. My skin still had the same soft, clean feeling as the regular Exfolikate but didn't appear as red with the Gentle formula. I love both Exfolikate products but would recommend the Gentle formula to anyone with sensitive skin. Same great results.

    • I love exfolikate and exfolikate acne but I wanted to try something that would be gentler for my sensitive skin. You don't feel the same tingling as with exfolikate intensive but the end result is the same.

      (Posted on 6/3/14) Review by megan
    • My first favorite product of course is exfolikate, the reason being : it does not irritate my skin. I've allowed my friends to use exfolikate and some have said that it burns, so I brought this instead for a change and lent it to them, and they were in love. It doesn't feel as strong as the original exfolikate and is meant for sensitive skin, just as it says. Wonderful product, my second favorite in her entire line.

    • I prefer this more to the intensive exfolikate. This works great on sensitive skin and has the same benefits as the original one. My skin felt very refreshed afterwards! I wish it came in smaller travel sizes!

    • Pros: AWESOME for sensitive skin, effective at acne and blackhead elimination, face feels very clean afterwards

      Cons: Pricey, I wish it came in travel sizes like the intensive exolikate!

      Tried the intensive and hated it, but I tried a sample of the gentle exfolikate and it's fantastic!!

    • I like to exfoliate and this product is gentle enough to let me do it more often!
      It leaves my skin so smooth but not raw.
      I mix it with the cleanser and wash my face with both at the same time!

    • I have very sensitive skin and while I liked the original exfolikate, I thought maybe I should try this one and see if maybe this formulation would be better for me. I found it was just a little too gentle for me and for the results I am looking for. I will still finish the tube but will reorder the other version next time.

      (Posted on 4/16/14) Review by Jessica
    • Received a sample of this and proceeded to take it on vacation and test it out. The microbeads are not scratchy or harsh like other scrubs, but glide on the skin, and are true to the name - gentle! It is very similar to the Exfolikate but for those who find that a little harsh this is definitely the product for you. Pores are reduced, skin is refined and smooth - winner!

      (Posted on 4/15/14) Review by Rasmia
    • I love this product. I know that it seems crazy but I could tell a huge difference in my skin after using it only once. It feels like I just went to the spa and got a facial. Love love love!!

    • This delicious product is incredible. Cleaned out my pores without feeling heavy or abrasive, smoothed everything out, and I love how it smells. Goes so well with the oil free moisturizer. GREAT for my sensitive and acne skin - clearing things up SO fast!

    • I have rosacea and am very sensitive to exfoliating products. I hesitantly tried a sample of this product and I was hooked! The results are amazing! My skin is soft and bump free without redness or irritation. I would recommend rosacea sufferers give this product a try!

    • Gentle enough for my sensitive skin. The regular exfolikate actually burned my skin so I'm really glad I found the gentle version.

      (Posted on 3/6/14) Review by Sharon
    • Although this product is almost the same as exfolikate, it is specifically for sensitive skin. I tend to have sensitive skin, and when I tried this I was blown away by the gentleness that is brought to my face. I didn't receive it in sample size, but I am planning to buy the largest tube possible.

      (Posted on 3/2/14) Review by Wendy
    • I use this product 1x a week. It seems to melt all the impurities out of my skin, leaving it fresh, soft and clean. A little bit goes a long way so you can stretch your dollar! Worth every penny to have a spa-like treatment in your own home! I've tried the original and it was just too harsh for my skin, but this is absolutely perfect! Smells fabulous, too!

    • I have been using this for about a year. I use it once a week and it keeps my skin nice and smooth. Even though it is expensive, the bottle has lasted me almost a year with using it once a week. It also doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I will continue to purchase this!

    • I was having really bad dry flaky skin during the fall in Denver. I would slather on lotion to fix the dry areas but this only clogged my pores more and caused acne! Nonetheless it was a never ending cycle until I found this product. I was hesitant if it would actually make a difference in my face but I was blown away. It works wonders! Not only is it a truly gentle product, I only had to use it once or twice a week to get my face back to normal! Now I need to use it once every 2 weeks or so. It is definitely worth it!! I can't go without it now.

    • Wow!! I think I have been looking for this product my whole life!! That sounds pretty dramatic, but I have always struggled with acne, dry patches, sensitive skin, dull skin, etc. This mask is the solution for all of my skin concerns!! I have added this product to my skin care routine and am totally in LOVE!!!! It is gentle, yet very effective. I feel a little tingle while using this product, but it is non-irritating and mild. **Be sure to use this product as directed and do not exceed the time suggested.** I am very careful; when it comes to the directions on skin care. I have never had a problem with this product, and I have always followed the directions carefully. This product was made for gentle skin types, but you still need to wash it off in a timely manner to avoid irritation, etc.

      I highly recommend this product. It has cleared my acne almost 99%, I have softer, brighter, healthier, smoother skin and it is a confidence booster!!

      The price may seem a little high, but it is much cheaper than a facial at a spa. It is a treat that is worth every penny. It is a spa experience that you can enjoy at home over and over again!

      I will be buying a full size very soon (I just finished a sample from Sephora).

    • My daughter recommended the regular ExfoliKate to me, but it was way too intense for my aging, delicate skin. I got online and found this more gentle alternative that I was able to pick up at Nordstrom. It's a much more gentle product that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I am able to use it 1-2 times each week.

    • I tried the regular Exfolikate and it was a little too intense for my skin. This version is much more gentle so I'm able to use it once a week between my detox cleansers. Nice exfoliator!

    • I've used a lot of different exfoliating treatments in my life, but this is my new favorite.

      I have really sensitive skin and this is one of the only products I have ever used that didn't make my skin the slightest bit red.

      That alone is reason enough to keep using it, but it also made my skin baby smooth, clear and gave me a nice glow.

      My husband even noticed and now I have him using it.

    • I typically use the regular ExfoliKate process however I have very dry skin, and with the coming of Winter, I found it was a bit harsh on my skin, so decided to switch to the gentle one. I have had great results with this product and am loving it. Will switch back to my regular ExfoliKate once Winter passes.

    • I had dry flaky skin next to my nose. At first I purchased a facial scrub drug store from the pharmacy. It was harsh and made my skin really dry and did nothing for the flaky skin. After using this product just once I noticed how soft my skin felt. After using this a few times I noticed the flaky skin had gone away. I use this product about 3 times a week - the flaky dry skin hasn't returned!. It's really gentle and easy to use. I always follow up with the Goat Milk moisturizer.

    • When I developed rosacea on my face I thought I would have to stop using ExfoliKate as it was just too harsh and made my face sting, but then I discovered this product and was so, so happy!! I LOVED ExfoliKate and hated that I would have to stop using it because it was the only exfoliator that ever worked well but didn't rip my face apart. Unfortunately, it just wasn't gentle enough for my face anymore with the hideous rosacea. This product saved my face from never being exfoliated again. It truly is so gentle but it still takes away the dead skin and environmental crud that lands on my face and does it so beautifully! I absolutely LOVE this product and am so happy I found it just when I was sure I'd have to give up ExfoliKate. Thank you, Kate, from those of us who love your products but needed them to be a tiny bit gentler. This is the perfect solution!

    • My skin is the type that just needs to be exfoliated. Period. And yours probably does do. Everyone needs to at some point. I didn't know this growing up. I grew up with acne prone skin and used to think I needed harsh chemicals to dry out my skin to prevent acne. I was wrong and this product is a life saver. Exfoliation keeps my pores clear and prevents acne from even forming from the start. I love the original formula for a once a week deep exfoliation, but this product I use several times a week midweek to make sure my pores are never clogged. Maybe it's because I'm a guy and my skin is a little thicker that I can take the almost daily exfoliation. But it's so gentle it exfoliates without any harsh after effects. So use it as often as you feel your skin can take it and be happy when your skin stays smooth and clean all week long. I do.

This exfoliator lets me control my usage (as it's not a cleanser). The exfoliating beads are effective (doing their job!) but less harsh (for my sensitive skin!). This is my HG product!

    • Sometimes when my skin is a bit dry, regular ExfoliKate can be a little too much, but after trying a trial of this from Sephora, I'm hooked! I was so thankful I had a bottle of this waiting for me at home after a week in and out of the swimming pool (chlorine does such a number on my skin!).

    • I first tried this exfoliator as a sample, and I immediately became hooked. It is by far the best exfoliator I have tried (and I have tried many). To use, I massage the product into my skin gently and then let sit for a minute or two while I'm in the shower. The results are incredible! I find many exfoliators to be too rough on my skin, and for a while I actually wasn't using one because I was afraid they might damage my sensitive skin. With ExfoliKate Gentle, my skin feels soft and rejuvenated without drying or damaging my skin. My skin glows and my make-up goes on perfectly! This product is expensive, but well worth the money!

    • I recently started using this product and I am completely impressed! It isn't harsh on my sensitive skin and doesn't leave it feeling dry and raw like some other exfoliates tend to do. However, I gave this product 4 stars because the smell isn't the greatest. If you are looking for a weekly exfoliating treatment that is gentle on your skin I would definitely recommend this, you'll get used to the smell after awhile anyways :)

    • Really gentle on dry and sensitive skin. The regular ExfoliKate is much stronger and does work better in general, but if you have dry skin or live in a harsh climate, this is a great product! I use this in place of the regular ExfoliKate in the winter time.

    • During the winter my skin is easily aggitated. I used this exfoliater all winter last year and really enjoyed the results. I felt like it improved my skin tone and lessened my breakouts. If you have normal to oily skin you would probably want to use a more intense exfoliater, but this one is awesome.

    • I have used other brands that left my skin reddened,dry and stiff. This is perfect for sensitive skin and it rinses cleanly. A must for those who have aging skin and need a regimen.

    • I am so glad I tried the Exfolikate Gentle. I have very sensitive and reactive skin and while I love the original Exfolikate, I have to be careful how long I leave it on. The gentle formula is just perfect for my skin. I get that gorgeous glow without having to worry about any issues afterwards. I highly recommend it to anyone that has sensitive skin.

    • I've tried TONS of exfoliaters and have never found one that I love...until now. I use mine in the shower, rub it on my face, let sit for a few minutes while I wash my hair, then rinse of with water. My face feels super soft afterwards and it doesn't leave a film or grime like some other exfoliating products. I will definitely keep using this. If there was one drawback it's that the bottle is a little small.

    • ive used a bAZILLIOn facial products. you name it. and a lot of them usually sucks the moisture out of my face and i have to deal with finding the right moisturizers, but this products really moisturizes and keeps ur face from drying out. (wen ur face dries out, it tells its pores to start producing more oil which turns into a never-ending cycle of acne!!_

      ALSO this product is the oNLY product that can clear CYSTIC acne overnight. it is AMAZING. ya know those pimples that doesn't have a white head, but if u touch it becomes rock and hard and it's super painful? this product takes care of that SO WELL i love it!!!!

    • I'm the typical stressed out high school teenager with the all too busy schedule. I had perfect skin (not kidding! It always glowed) up until my junior year when the multiple APs and standardized testing hit me. I started breaking out off and on and developed a really bad habit for picking at my blemishes. I used dermalogica products which worked temporarily and then stopped; I think I've developed too much resistance to antibiotics for them to work anymore. This product not only cleared up my acne after the first use but also lightened my acne scars. I've used it maybe like 5 or 6 times and am already seeing major improvements. I am so tempted to use it more than the recommended 1-2 times a week. If you have acne issues, this product is the best answer.

    • i have severe rosacea, peri oral dermatitis, and live in ontario canada. needless to say my skin is not very nice. i treat rosacea w some meds, yearly laser therapy, and lots of care. i received a sample of this from an online retailer of makeup etc. the sample was enough for 5 treatments. after just the first treatment my skin was brighter, tighter, less red, clearer, more even, softer, smoother...you get the point. when my sample ran out i immediately signed in to the kate somerville webiste to place an order. as of now i will be switicing all of my facial care regimen products to kate. thanks so much for a glowing complexion. :)

    • I generally use all three of kate somerville exfoliators depending on how my skin is feeling, this one has a wonderful smell to it and I can typically use this one in the morning and there is no redness.

    • I've introduced a lot of my friends and family to the Kate Somerville line because I know it works, and that no matter what your skin condition is, this brand will be beneficial. Most of my family has super sensitive skin (including myself) and although I can usually use the regular Exfolikate, I many times will grab this one instead. It works perfectly for sensitive skin to remove the dead skin and give your skin new life and it is a definite must have!!!! I wish this one came in a luxury size!!!
