Kate Somerville Ceramide + Omegas Serum
[productsample/affiliate] It’s taken me a really long time to post this because I’ve had it for a while – it’s £84 so I wanted to take my time over considering it, even for a short-term review.
I think I’ve found myself stuck in the 90’s regarding ceramides – as an ingredient, the fatty acid molecules went out of fashion for a while in favour of more fancy stuff. But, ceramides occur naturally in the body helping skin to stay supple and hydrated – and of course, to work optimally so replenishing them is going to be a good thing for your skin. Kate Somerville’s version is a blend of ceramides and omegas and yet doesn’t feel nearly as heavy as that sounds.
Ceramide products can be really helpful in restoring your barrier – so if your skin is dry, very dry, red or sensitive you’ll certainly feel the relief with this product. It’s difficult to fully assess when I don’t have any of the above conditions but it really did feel properly soothing when I tried it on my hot and sun-hit skin and I like the idea that with longer term use your skin is going to be in much better balance and feel more hydrated over all. There are lots of claims to this product – environmental protection, tone regulation, microbiome balancing – the list goes on – but its the lipid barrier support that I think is the most important thing. If your skin feels warm and irritated or itchy, the ingredient that puts paid to that in this formula is a fruit extract called Tasmannia Lanceolate. Of course, Ceramide + Omegas is fragrance free. It has to be, at the price, a considered purchase, but if it’s any help, you can get 15% off for a first time purchase, qualify for 3 free samples and get free postage. There’s also a free blemish banishing kit worth £38 for an over £75 spend. It’s HERE.
