REVIEW | KATE SOMERVILLE QUENCH OIL FREE SERUM

I started using serums not so long ago, but since I started I cant get enough of them and I love trying new and different serums. I was lucky enough to win a skincare consultation with Kate Somerville and walk away with a big goody bag. In that goody bag was some amazing skin care products and one if it as their Quench Oil Free Serum. The serum costs HK$ 595 and can be bought at any Kate Somerville counter in Hong Kong. I used this serum for about a month to test the results.

The product claims to be 'The lightweight, water-based formula of Quench Oil Free Hydrating Face Serum is a cutting-edge solution designed to pull moisture in deep and lock it in, while helping to balance sebum production. Powerful Peptides are formulated to help decrease the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles, while increasing the look of firmness. This fast-absorbing treatment—and its unparalleled moisture—reveals softer, more radiant skin'.

Lets start with the basics the packaging is really lovely and very consumer conscious and easy to use. The serum is a light weight and has a very soft texture to it. the serum has a bit of a liquid feel to it and a little bit goes a long way. How ever the serum its self was let down for me I have to say. Even though it is a water based serum and supposed to balance sebum products, it did the opposite for me. My skin became very oily and started breaking out. On and off when I start using a new skincare product my skin tends to break out till it gets used to it so I kept using it for about a month. Usually within a week or so my skin calms down and returns to normal. With this serum, my skin continued to break out and was much more oilier than usual so I had to stop using it as my skin was really not liking it at all.

So I decided to give to my mom as she has normal skin and can use any skincare product without any issues. My mom has noticed that her skin did get smoother looking after she started using the serum. So I would recommend it for dry to normal skin types and a bit more mature skin. So I will not be repurchasing this serum as it didnt agree with my troublesome skin.

Do you use Kate Somerville skincare products? Have you used this serum before? Let me know what you think in the comment box below.
