Many of us are familiar with Kate Somerville's Exfolikate, the brand's cult favorite exfoliating treatment.  Exfolikate by far is Kate Somerville's most popular product, but this brand has a wide array of products and extensive collections that cater to different skin types.

This post is all about the Kate Somerville Age Arrest™anti-aging skincare line.  Age Arrest ™is the firsrt anti-aging collection with Telo-5™Technology based on the Nobel Prize-winning research on the youthful benefits of prolonging the life of telomeres.  As we age, skin cell telomeres shorten and critical youth information is lost.

Kate Somerville's website further expounds on the anti-aging benefits of the Telo-5™Technology.

Age Arrest’s advanced formula, based on telomere research, is proven to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, increase skin firmness and elasticity, improve the appearance of skin discoloration, and significantly hydrate. Revolutionary Telo-5™ Technology is designed to combat the comprehensive signs of aging and deliver a younger-looking complexion.

Below are two of the products from the Age Arrest™ line that I was able to try, Kate Somerville Age Arrest Anti-Wrinkle Cream and Eye Cream.

Let's start with the Anti-Wrinkle Cream.

New bio-ferment Extract of Laminaria Kelp works synergistically with skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid to help diminish the appearance of wrinkles.

A proprietary blend of Sea Whip Extract and Algae Plasma provides immediate and lasting soothing of sensitive skin.

My undereye area is one of my problem areas, as I have undereye circles and puffy eye bags.  According to Kate Somerville, 
Age Arrest’s advanced formula, based on telomere research, helps to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while visibly firming, tightening, and toning the eye area. Kate’s custom Light-scattering Compound instantly disguises the look of under eye dark circles. Revolutionary Telo-5™ Technology is designed to combat the comprehensive signs of aging around the delicate eye area.

I can honestly say that while these products are not miracles in a bottle that magically erases puffy eye areas and wrinkles, I can say that these are really luxurious-feeling, soothing products that infuse moisture into the skin and makes problem areas a little brighter.

As for the Anti-Wrinkle cream, it is infused with a light, non-cloying and soothing scent that relaxes my senses after a long day.  It keeps my skin moisturized without feeling greasy, and I wake up to soft, supple skin.  

The Eye Cream also gives a soothing feel on my undereye area, and I do see a little improvement on my undereye area - it doesn't look as puffy as the night before, and it looks a little brighter.

I cannot vouch for the brand's claim of reducing the appearance of wrinkles, as I don't have deep wrinkles, nor have I used the product long enough to make an informed opinion on the claim.  However, I do like the fact that these products infuse moisture to the skin that I can see and feel.  It gives a little bit of pampering that I crave, especially after a long, hard day.

The Kate Somerville Age Arrest™ Anti-Wrinkle Cream retails for $90 (1.7 fl. oz) and Eye Cream retails for $75 (0.5 fl. oz.), and is available at Nordstrom, Sephora and Kate Somerville website.
