A $30 skincare product has been voted the best cleanser in Australia after thousands of beauty fans voted for their favourite formula.
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser has been crowned the winner in the ‘best cleanser’ category in the coveted Mecca Beauty Election 2020 awards.
The papaya, pineapple and pumpkin enzymes found in the ingredients sets the face wash apart from just about every other cleanser on the market.
The daily exfoliating cleanser gently removes oil, makeup and surface impurities to leave complexion softer, smoother and more radiant without over drying the skin.
The product comes in a 50mL tube for $30 or 120mL for $61.
With more than 300 glowing reviews online, hundreds of beauty fans have given the cleanser a 4.6 star rating.
‘I’ve bought this on repeat for years now. It’s the best, always leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean without that sore, stripped feeling,’ one shopper said.
Another added: ‘Love! I use it every morning and night. Leaves skin feeling so fresh and clean. My pores have definitely minimised and skin texture has improved.’
Described as the ‘holy grail’ of cleansers, many women are swearing by the ‘must-have’ product for clearing up their stubborn acne or pimples.
‘This product answers all my issues! It has not irritated my sensitive skin. My skin feels so soft and clean afterwards and my pores have dramatically become less visible and my breakouts are non existent,’ one fan said.
Another said: I’ve been using this cleanser for a few weeks to clear up some hormonal acne. It’s become my most favourite cleanser to date. My skin feels so soft and clean after each use and my acne is clearing up quickly.’
Many said the tube ‘goes a long way’ as you only need a tiny amount for your face.
‘A small amount goes a long way which is good as it’s a little pricey… My skin has never looked better. I’m 33 and my skin was looking a little dull and this has made me look fresh and awaken,’ one woman said.
Another added: ‘I’m loving the way my skin feels and I genuinely look forward to cleansing with this daily. A tiny amount goes a long way, definitely great value too.’
Safe to use twice a day, the ExfoliKate Cleanser promises to refine skin texture and reduce the appearance of pores without dehydrating the skin.
The runners-up in the cleanser category includes Eve Lom, Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel, Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm and Ren Clean Skincare Perfect Canvas – Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser.
