Review: Kate Somerville Gentle Daily Wash

When it comes to cleansers, I can find myself very picky, so I really like when I find one that ticks all my boxes.

I put the call out to Twitter to find a good cleanser for sensitive skin and Amy from Bottled Beauty┬árecommended me this. It’s a gel formula, with a lavender/herbal like scent. I really liked it and it was almost relaxing in a way. It foams nicely but is in no way drying to the skin, nor did it break me out. I found this great to use with my Clarisonic or even just my hands. The bottle is shower friendly being easy to squeeze and a nice twist open lid. Being able to store it facing it down meant that I was able to get every last drop out! Which when you love it, you really. really want to do ­čśŤ

When I purchased this I got a sample of the exfoliator and moisturiser, now I want to buy the whole range. I feel like I should be saying more, but really, I like this SO much, I’m kind of lost for words. There’s a first time for everything. I’m actually kind of sad that I went out to buy a new cleanser to try, I should have repurchased this!

You can purchase this cleanser for $36 AUD and the rest of the Kate Somerville range from Mecca Cosmetica.

What is your favourite cleanser of the moment?


  • Miss Dustyn Rumble

    Shiseido Deep cleansing Foam :-)

    Was considering this today at Mecca but went with a Sunday Riley cleanser instead.

    • MissRachii

      Is the foam drying? All other foams I’ve used have hated my dry skin :(

      Let me know how the Sunday Riley Cleanser goes!

      • Miss Dustyn Rumble

        I have quite oily skin and so I have found that most foams work really well for it. Will try and do a mini review when I get home!

        • MissRachii

          I’d love to read it. Even though it probably too dry for it!

  • Emma Bovary

    I’ve always been thinking about this brand but haven’t heard a whole lot about it! My favourite cleanser is the Soap & Glory Hot Pore Cloth blah blah cleanser, haha. It is so good but a cream cleanser, I don’t do the foamy ones

    • MissRachii

      Ooo I’ve been wanting to try some Soap and Glory stuff out, but I’m the exact opposite, I’m not a fan or cream cleansers! haha But if its good for pores I might look into it!
