Personal Review: Kinerase

sp32-20071012-155425.jpg

I recently had the chance to try a few of the Kinerase products. If there name sounds familiar it might be because their spokesperson is Courntey Cox Arquette and they have a long list of celebrity fans. I have heard a lot about the Kinerase products and the awards they have won but you always wonder how well a product actually works.

I started using the Day & Night Moisturizers and the Pro Therapy C6 peptide lotion a little over two weeks ago. With the first use I noticed it was unscented which I like and it seemed to go on smooth and absorb well. I have been using specialty anti-aging creams for awhile so I wondered how different it would actually be. Over the next few days of use I noticed my face was less oily during the day, I am usually really shiny by the afternoon and my face was still smooth and oil free at bedtime. I don’t know if that is even supposed to be a side effect of use but anything that makes my face not shine is great in my opinion.

Of course the big reason for using Kinerase is their promise to reduce the signs sun damage and aging. My face is still fairly wrinkle free I just hit the big 30 but I am starting to get little crows feet and laugh lines. Over the last few weeks they have been softening though and I have noticed the last few nights they are barely visible. My skin feels so smooth and I have even noticed my pores have gotten a little smaller. I really like this product it delivered on what it promised and more I am hooked!

I have listed a little more info about the three products I tried they have many additional products at their site to meet different skin types.

Lost’s Emilie de Ravin at the Monique Lhuillier Salon opening in Los Angeles, October 10

I love that she chopped all her hair off! It’s adorable, and looks soft and shiny!  Which makes me think of my latest purchase – and I must share! I finally got off my butt and bought a diffuser for my blow dryer – and what a HUGE differance that makes!

Most diffusers are universal – so they should work on any dryer.  They are an inexpensive way of getting beautiful, curly, non-frizzy hair every time you blow dry!  I picked mine up at Trade Secret – but I’m sure any beauty supply store in your area would carry them.

Here’s a little Diffuser 101 for ya:

Assuming you want curly hair… Apply your preferred curl-enhancing product. Attach the diffuser to your hair dryer, turned on to low. Instead of scrunching with your hands, let the diffuser physically do the ‘scrunching’ for you. Pile a section of hair into the diffuser, ‘scrunch’ it towards your scalp, and hold it there for 10-15 seconds. You likely want the air flow going up, angled away from your head. Repeat until hair is nearly dry. Resist hand scrunching. Let it finish trying on its own. Important: do not touch. Let it dry completely. The curls are setting and touching it now will disturb them.

I found one on Amazon…if you’re interested, you can go here to buy it! $20.00.  Mine was only $10.00 so I know you can find them cheaper!
