Kate somerville liquid lift

As a beauty blogger for over ten years, I have refined the way I approach testing products. It’s not possible to try and test everything on the market; I have a precise formula when it comes to what products I will buy and what products I will ask the company to send me when I am testing new skincare. This aspect is what sets me apart from all the other beauty bloggers out there. I am committed to sharing products that I use and find beneficial from my research. Beauty is my life, as far back as I can remember I was giving advice on what skin care products to use and I was the go-to girl to applying false lashes on all my girlfriends for the Debutant Ball.

I have been following Kate Somerville for some time now and what stands out to me is that she is also an Esthetician and uses her products in her treatment room. Her skin care formulations are proven in her clinic and then bottled for at-home use. Visiting her skin care clinic in Los Angles and receiving a luxe facial is on my beauty bucket list.

I wanted to try one of Kate’s most popular products called DermalQuench Liquid Lift + Retinol. The name itself is just delightful from “Lifting” to “Retinol” I want it all. But first, let me tell you why it is so important to have a skin resurfacing product incorporated into your skincare routine. I see too many of my clients not using advanced products to help with the aging process. They are skipping over the essential step to exfoliate, retexture and refine their skin making all the other products they apply to their skin wasted. If you don’t peel and rid your skin of the dead skin cells two to three times a week, you will not see radiant, glowing skin. It’s that simple ladies, dry, dead skin cells hanging out on the surface of your skin does not make for a youthful looking face.

I haven’t been that excited about how the texture of my skin has been looking lately. I have these two clogged pores near my hairline on my forehead that make me crazy. I extract them weekly and was thinking I am going to have to go to the Dermatologist to get them injected. Nothing has helped refine these two angry pores, so I thought this was the perfect time to test out the DermalQuench Liquid Lift + Retinol.

DermalQuench Liquid Lift +Retinol claims to transform your complexion combining the power of Oxygen with firming Retinol to refine skin’s texture and create a smooth, supple glow. The DermalQuench is formulated with a Retinol Active Ingredient, two types of Natural BioRetinols-Babchi Edible Seed and Spanish Needle Extracts and Kate’s Advanced HydraFill Complex to firm skin by helping to promote collagen production. This product is applied at night to clean skin. All of this sounds great but does it work?

The first night I tired the DermalQuench I didn’t shake the bottle long enough, and the product sprayed out as a liquid. I realized that I had to give it a good shake for a minute or two then press the actuator button to dispense a small amount of the foam onto my fingertips and massage into skin. It felt very light and refreshing on my skin and absorbed right away. I then applied my nighttime moisturizer. The next morning I was putting my makeup on, and I forgot (silver moment lol, I can say this now that I am gray) that I used the DermalQuench. I was impressed that after only one application my skin felt smooth yet still hydrated. I continued to use this product for the next two weeks, remember those two angry pores I mentioned before that were determined to derail my flawless skin? Well, they were flat as a pancake, and I was smitten.

From all my beauty testing it’s not easy finding a Retinol product that doesn’t try out your skin. I am very impressed with Kate’s product line and the significant improvement in the appearance of my skin, I feel that this is a great night-time skincare product to include in your anti-aging routine to improve the appearance of skin roughness, firmness, pore size and fine lines.

Best Things in Beauty


Margarita was ready for me when I arrived a few minutes early. Our weather was horrendous, and she had had a few cancellations. I can’t imagine why anyone would have given up a slot to avoid getting wet. I got drenched multiple times today, but I wouldn’t have missed this treatment for rain or anything short of hospitalization.
DERMAL QUENCH Oxygen Treatment produces instant, unbelievable results, and Neiman Marcus is doing the treatments for free – treatments that cost hundreds of dollars elsewhere.When Margarita was finished, I had stepped out of a time capsule into a face that I had about three years ago.
Margarita did a facial before she did the oxygen treatment. Naturally, she used Kate Somerville’s pro-level products for all phases of my relaxing treat. She cleansed my skin with Gentle Daily Wash and then exfoliated with Micro Glycolic Polisher, a professional-strength treatment peel that resurfaces and restores skin. I told her that my face could handle glycolic acid, despite the sensitivity of my skin – and it did. Kate Somerville has products for every skin type, and Margarita was careful to talk to me about my skin and what it likes before she selected the treatments she applied.
The Quench Hydrating Mask was an incredibly cooling pleasure. While it was working, she made my treat even better by a quick arm and hand massage, using Goat Milk Body Lotion. She also applied Neck Tissue Repair in such a soothing way. By that point, I was so relaxed, she could have done anything and I would have been happy. The reason I went, though, was to experience Kate Somerville’s DERMAL QUENCH Oxygen Treatment – applied with a machine that pumps serum and oxygen into your skin, hydrating and plumping it to take off the years.
This treatment is well-known among celebrities who suffer from jet lag or have to walk the red carpet looking fabulous. It’s starting to be well-known among my set (ordinary women), unwilling to look “older,” but not willing to endure expensive, painful, and bruising injections. Margarita told me that women want to know where they can buy the DERMAL QUENCH machine, and now I know why. This could get addictive.
What does DERMAL QUENCH do? It’s a hydrating treatment that delivers oxygen, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid serum under hyperbaric pressure to produce age-defying results. After complimenting my skin, which was very sweet and totally unnecessary, Margareta told me that she would concentrate on the lines on my forehead. I asked her to also work on my nasolabial folds, which bother me more than my forehead, and she was game. The machine and the HydraKate Line Release serum used with it are intended to hydrate, plump, soothe, soften, tone, and lift the skin. The treatment can be used anywhere on your face. Concerned about your undereye area? No problem – the treatment can be applied there. You will glow when your treatment is over. In fact, you probably won’t want to leave. The treatment feels like a high-powered airbrushing, but it’s gentle and relaxing. The results are said to last two to three days, long enough to look younger (and great) for a big event.
HydraKate Line Release, used with the oxygen treatment, has some high-tech ingredients.

  • HSC Complex – a proprietary ingredient that counters the loss of lipids
  • Hyaluronic Acid – a moisture magnet
  • Leuphasyl – reduces the depth of expression wrinkles and is a safe alternative to Botox
  • SNAP-8 – reduces wrinkles and muscular contractions at the surface
  • Pepha-Tight – algae extract and pullulan to strengthen connective tissue and firm the skin, while hydrating
  • Peptides – the darlings of state-of-the-art skin care, which help to build collagen and reduce the signs of aging

Margarita showed me my face in a magnifying mirror after she did the initial facial treatments and before she did the DERMAL QUENCH treatment. I saw my “expression lines,” hard to miss in the mirror. Then she set to work with her little spray wand, a pleasant experience once I realized how it felt and exactly what she was doing (concentrating on any little wrinkle she saw). After about five minutes (maybe a few more – I was totally relaxed in her hands), she was finished and handed me a mirror. I was stunned – totally stunned. While I still had some wrinkles on my forehead, they were significantly reduced. The nasolabial folds and the other shallow parentheses around my mouth? They were gone – truly gone. She noticed the dramatic difference. So did I. It was amazing. No wonder women want to buy the machine.
Margarita finished my treatment with more serum and Line Release Under Eye Repair Cream. I was relaxed, hydrated, dewy, and free of the surface wrinkles that plague me. You can experience this too.
If you live in the DC area, Margarita will be doing the DERMAL QUENCH treatment on November 11. Call (703) 761-1600, extension 3304, to book an appointment. If you would also like the luxury of a facial and the oxygen treatment, you can make an appointment for November 23. She does them about once a month, and they are complimentary. You should take the opportunity learn about Kate Somerville’s fabulous skin-care products and the ones that will make you glow. I’m building a list, and Margarita kindly gave me some samples to bring home so that I can continue to experience the luxury of Kate Somerville and make my treatment results last as long as possible.
If you don’t live in the DC area, you have options. Many of the Kate Somerville counters are offering DERMAL QUENCH treatments, so ask. Kate’s own clinic in Los Angeles provides all Kate Somerville services.
You need to do this! I have never experienced a treatment that took off years in just a few minutes – until today. Want to see a cool video? Check out this one from just one clinic that uses this fabulous Kate Somerville technology. Or Google DERMAL QUENCH to see what a phenomenon it is.
