This left my skin feeling hydrated but not oily as other products have in the past. My skin felt so soft afterwards. This product had lasting effects as my skin cleared up and my makeup went on easier.
This was my first KS product! I used it with Age Arrest. This serum is so addicting because it feels like a drink of water to the skin. I have very dry skin so I would apply a layer of this and then add some to my cream. This is also good to add to makeup for a glow
I used the sample of this product and went back for more! It is amazing. I can't believe how quickly it replenishes the skin. I would absolutely recommend it and it is really moisturizing but not in an oily way. Great product that I will definitely be buying again!
I have always had difficulty finding products that work for my sensitive skin, which is prone to dryness AND oiliness, resulting in a lot of breakouts especially during my monthly cycle. Worse, I have very pale coloring, so every bit of redness or scarring is glaringly obvious, making me want to pile on the foundation (irritating my skin even further). A few months ago, I finally got fed up enough that I was willing to spend the money to establish a completely new skincare regimen. I went with Kate products based on the recommendations I got at a specialty cosmetics/skincare boutique. I left feeling extremely guilty about the amount of money I had spent, and doubtful that this was going to make any difference for me. I decided to introduce one product at a time into my regimen in case I decided to return some items. I started out by using a small pump of the Quench serum each night. Literally within DAYS of starting to use this product, the dry patches on my face disappeared (i'm talking about areas that had been dry and peeling for the better part of a year), the reddish areas from past breakouts had faded, and my face was visibly more smooth and evenly-toned. As I introduced other Kate products (the goat milk moisturizer in the morning, and exfoliate gentle 2-3 times a week), my skin continued to improve. Now, I have actually been comfortable enough to occasionally go out in public with no makeup at all -- something I haven't been able to do since I was 14 years old! While this is really a result of the combination of Kate products I've been using, if I had to choose just one product to recommend to anyone, it would be the Quench serum hands down.
The name of this product suits it perfectly. I love the glow it gives, the dewy look, the hydration. The lipids plump skin up nicely. I love Kate's advice to use it on arms and legs for a dewy sheen, but I think its a little pricey to be slathering on areas larger than my face--though I would love to!
