Kinerase Advanced Lotion, Cream & Eye Cream – best skincare combo on the market?

I have very temperamental skin. Over the years I have tried many, many lotions. My skin freaks out half the time, by breaking out or getting overly dry, or blotchy. Kinerase is one of the few brands that when I try it, my skin says….. “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah you’re home.” It is quite honestly the most perfect lotion I’ve tried in a long time. I’ve had my hands on this lotion for a couple weeks now – and I held off writing this review until I tried it for a while. I can honestly say I have never felt better. My skin absolutely GLOWS. It moisturizes my skin, without leaving it feeling greasy or heavy. It has reduced the lines around my eyes – those lines so lovingly called crow’s feet! I can’t wait to see how my skin will further change – over the next month or two!

Here’s more about the lotion!

WHAT IT IS:

* New, improved lightweight lotion formula with HA3 Technology™ and clinical-strength Kinetin.
* Gentle, non-prescriptive retinoid alternative
* Formulated to provide superior moisturization for even the most sensitive skin.

WHAT IT DOES:

* Moisturizes dry, sensitive skin while supporting skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid.
* Visibly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by delaying the age related changes in cells.
* Helps hydrate dry, rough skin by increasing the amount of moisture retained in the skin by 25% in 24 weeks.
* Minimizes the appearance of freckles and brown spots, and lessens the look of blotchy, uneven skin tone.

KEY INGREDIENTS:

* Kinetin (.1% N6 Furfuryladenine): A nature identical plant cytokinin clinically proven to help the skin to retain moisture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without irritation.
* HA3 Technology™ (N-acetyl-glucosamine-6-Phosphate): Retinol alternative that helps support the skin’s natural ability to produce hyaluronic acid. Complements Kinetin to improve skin’s appearance in a gentle, effective way.

POINTS OF DIFFERENCE:

* Same benefits of our original coveted lotion, in an improved formula that helps support skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid for longer lasting results, improving the ability to retain moisture over time.
* Improved texture formulated for oily skin, combination skin, younger skin, and use during warmer months and in warmer climates.
* Helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by delaying the age related changes in skin cells.
* Helps to reduce brown spots because Kinetin offers antioxidant benefits that help neutralize free radicals. This benefit helps to eliminate free radical damage and waste in the skin, causing a visible reduction in the appearance of brown (age) spots
* Improves skin texture.
* Suitable to apply after chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and microdermabrasion.
* Non-irritating and gentle enough for most skin types.
* Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.
* Now free of parabens

APPLICATION TIPS:

* Use in the MOISTURIZE step of the regimen.
* Apply a dime size amount of KINERASE Lotion to cleansed face and neck and rub thoroughly.
* For best results apply in the morning and evening.
* Sunscreen or makeup may be applied immediately after applying KINERASE Lotion.

POINTS OF DIFFERENCE:

* Emollient texture formulated for normal to dry skin, and use during dry months and in colder climates.
* Helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by delaying the age related changes in skin cells.
* Helps to reduce brown spots because Kinetin offers antioxidant benefits that help neutralize free radicals. This benefit helps to eliminate free radical damage and waste in the skin, causing a visible reduction in the appearance of brown (age) spots
* Improves skin texture.

High Protein Face Care – Introducing Mama Mio’s Clean Slate!

If you want your skin to look amazing, you have got to try Mama Mio’s products. I’ve been using their face lotions a while now, and have never been disappointed with a single product I come in contact with. Clean Slate is NO different. The large 5 oz. bottle lasts for ages, certainly long enough for you to see REAL results.

Yoga for the face is on the rise! As an effective alternative to invasive fillers and Botox, exercise for the face tones and lifts facial muscles and promotes collagen production. Recently on Good Morning America, Dr. Neil Sadick says, “By stimulating any component of your face, like your muscles, you’re going to have a beneficial effect in terms of your overall facial appearance.”

To try this non-invasive, DIY anti-aging technique look to Mama Mio Skincare (www.mamamio.com). The Mama Mio High Protein Face Care collection feature various skincare products – each accompanied by targeted Face Fitness exercises for maximized results:

-        Mighty Moisture: A day and moisturizer ($48)

-        Clean Slate: An Aloe-rich cleanser ($32)

-        Nexercise: A neck and jawline concentrate ($45)

-        Eye Know: An all-in-one eye serum ($39)

-        Love Your Life Lines: A deep line reducer ($48)

Clean Slate is a product of two halves – Clean Slate cleanser PLUS 60 seconds of Mama Mio Face Fitness. You are going to lift, tone and cleanse your skin AND lift, tone and energise the muscles attached to your skin.

1. Clean Slate Aloe-rich Cleanser

Our superb deep cleansing sulphate-free formula leaves your face feeling fresh , balanced and happy – never tight! We use eco-certified cleansers set in organic Aloe leaf juice, pre+probiotics, firming proteins and moisturising omegas to gently remove makeup and impurities without over-drying, unbalancing or irritating skin. Oh, did we mention Clean Slate smells gorgeous?

2. Mama Mio Face Fitness for Clean Slate

Two fabulous stretches that help to release the tension of the day or wake your face up in the morning – The Lioness and The Scream. The Scream is your morning yoga – and on some mornings when you look in the mirror a scream might just come quite naturally! And the Lioness is such a deep and relaxing way to end the day – you may just give your grinding teeth a deep sleep at night. These are like mini yoga for the face. Sometimes you can see how people hold a lot of stress in their faces – these two stretches will really help to relax your hard working face so you look more invigorated and energised.

Introducing 100% Pure products!

100% products are truly 100% Pure-no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.

100% Pure products are 100% animal-cruelty FREE!

We love animals and refuse to support anything that hurts animals which is why none of our formulas are ever tested on animals (everything we use is food grade and does not require testing, whereas chemical ingredients must be tested). All our makeup brushes are from synthetic fibers. No animals were hurt for their fur and no animals were hurt for any of our ingredients (the only animal ingredient we use is cruelty free honey).

Their products are naturally fragranced!

Perfumes and fragrances are synthetic chemicals that do not have any medicinal or aroma therapeutic value. 100% Pure products smell delicious because what you smell is real. The wonderful aromas in 100% Pure products are from real fruits, pure essential oils, and pure absolutes. There are never any synthetic fragrances or anything artificial in 100% Pure products.

100% Pure’s products are based on antioxidants!

Every moment, we are slowly deteriorating. Free radicals such as the sun, smog, smoke, cigarettes, etc. attack us, causing aging, wrinkles, and cancer. ONLY Antioxidants protect us, fighting off the damaging free radicals. Sun block is important because it blocks up to 80% of UV rays, but sun blocks DO NOT protect against other free radicals. Your skin needs antioxidants for sun protection and protection against all damaging free radicals.

What does 100% Pure mean?

There are many toxic chemicals in cosmetic products that have been clinically proven to cause cancer, tumors, irritation and many different skin disorders. 100% Pure products are truly 100% Pure. That means there are no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins. Truly health food for your skin.

I’ve been able to get my hands on a couple products, and I absolutely love them! I’m shocked how full of fragrance they are, and naturally! I love the body wash. It’s thin, so you’ll want a sponge – but you won’t be sorry. It smells and feels heavenly!

No harsh detergents, no synthetic chemicals, no artificial fragrances or any other toxins that can strip, irritate or dehydrate your delicate skin. Truly, 100% Pure. $15

I love the body cream. It feels really amazing on your skin, and it absorbs completely. Your skin doesn’t have a heavy feeling after you use it. You can almost feel the antioxidants kicking in when you use it. It’s really fantastic.
