One of the products that I added to my skin care routine earlier this year is the Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream. I first discovered this moisturizer on Carolin Hiron’s blog (where else?) and after reading more reviews I was sold. It has since become a staple in my skin care routine and is now my go-to nighttime moisturizer.
“As restorative as it is gentle, Goat Milk Cream moisturizes and soothes dry or damaged skin. Along with natural ingredients—like Aloe, Jojoba, and Avocado—this gentle formula utilizes Lactic Acid to reveal a fresh, renewed complexion.”
The first ingredient in the Goat Milk Cream is aloe instead of water which hydrates and calms dry and dehydrated skin while jojoba and avocado oils provide nourishment. The consistency of this cream feels rich without being heavy or greasy. It absorbs well and doesn’t leave any sticky residue which also makes it suitable to use in the mornings although I personally prefer something a bit lighter.
This moisturizer contains lactic acid which is derived from goat milk; hence the name of this cream. The lactic acid will gently exfoliate the skin, making this a good option for acneic skin. I’ve found that this cream really helps to calm those pesky under-skin bumps. By the morning my skin is a lot smoother and even.
I’m a big fan of the packaging of this moisturizer. Removing the cap reveals a pump mechanism. Pressing down on the rim of the container will dispense the product. The packaging is air-tight and opaque, keeping the product hygienic and the antioxidant ingredients stable. At the same time, the pump can be screwed off in order to remove the last traces of product from the jar.
Although the Goat Milk Cream is a bit pricy I I love how nourished it makes my skin feel and how well it calms redness and irritations. I also think that the jar will last a long time. I only need a small amount, less than a pump-full, to cover my whole face and neck. I’ve been using this cream for two months and I would estimate that I still have at least half of the jar left. For me it’s well worth the price.
