Getting intense with Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum

You know how the motto for real estate is ‘location, location, location’?  I think the motto for awesome skin is ‘hydration, hydration, hydration’!  The fabulous Kate Somerville sent us her best-selling Quench Hydrating Face Serum (1 fl.oz $75), and intense hydration quickly ensued.

Every time I use this serum (which is twice a day, morning and night) I sing that Cher song in my head…If I could turn back time...  I really do feel like I am turning back the clock and finding younger looking skin.  Quench Hydrating Serum is retinol based, and it does amazing things:

  • HSC Complex is designed to deliver intense hydration, while counteracting environmental stressors.
  • An intense form of Vitamin A helps to promote healthier-looking skin and return skin to its youthful appearance by boosting the skin renewal process.
  • Lipids—the key to younger-looking skin—are included to help improve elasticity and firmness.

The silicone-based serum sinks in quickly and leaves my skin so soft and moisturized, it’s positively luxurious.  It is fantastic on the neck and decolletage for a silky, satiny appearance that looks terrific.  The packaging couldn’t be better.  An airless pump keeps all those antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients stable and effective, plus it has a see-through strip on the side so you can see how much product is left.  To top off the awesomeness, the serum is fragrance-free.

    That’s a lot of money for basically a whole boatload of silicones.

    Hi Kathy, I agree it is spendy – but if your skin tolerates silicones well, this really is a terrific retinol serum that gives results.
