After hearing star after star — Kate Walsh, Molly Sims, Kristen Bell — effuse about how much they loved Kate Somerville’s “Kate in a Jar,” I had to try it for myself. And now I understand why they are hooked! The grainy green goo doesn’t look so sexy when you slather it on, but after 30 seconds, you wash it off — and your skin is miraculously smoother, clearer and so much softer. It’s like the ultimate exfoliator, but without being at all harsh on your face. I never really expect sticky New York City summers to do much for my skin, but I’ve never gotten so many compliments on my complexion. And for now, it’s as close as I’m getting to one of Kate’s legendary facials in Los Angeles. Get your own “Kate in a Jar” at katesomerville.com, $85.
