Primarily distributed through dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon offices, this no-nonsense, quality line endorsed by Courteney Cox delivers medical-grade results. If you can buy only one Kinerase product, then let it be the Under Eye Rescue Cream. This potent moisturizing and de-puffing formula (with no fragrance or dye) also brightens the eye area and contains physician-strength kinetin, which helps the skin retain moisture. Other ingredients include anti-inflammatory aloe vera, hydrolized rice bran protein to reduce the effect of UV rays, hyaluronic acid (which attracts 1000 times its molecular weight in moisture to the skin), and palmitoyl tripeptide-3 to increase collagen synthesis by 119%. Apply this cream twice daily around the orbital bone, and watch the smooth results with awe. $75 for 20 grams.
Kinerase’s Hydrating Antioxidant Mist re-hydrates and energizes the skin and helps neutralize the harmful effects of environmental pollutants, so feel free to spray with wild abandon throughout the day. A superb, non-irritating toner that contains the humectant hyakuronic acid, as well as grape seed extract, aloe vera gel, white tea extract, and kinetin, this is ideal for all skin types and is alcohol-free. This is the toner from heaven! $35 for a 6.6. oz. bottle.
The Kinerase Lip Treatment cream is a plumper with perks. In addition to increasing lip volume, this cream smoothes lips lines and the surrounding skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen tri-peptide restructures connective tissue on and around the lip area by stimulating collagen synthesis, and this dynamo mixture also contains vitamin E. Other ingredients include grape seed oil, white tea and the highest concentration of kinetin available (0.125%) in a cream. Apply twice daily for optimal results to keep your smile youthful and your lips bountiful.
Kinerase is the official skin care sponsor of Olympus Fashion Week in 2005, and had been in 2003 and 2004 as well, and donates a percentage of Kinerase sales to charity. The recently launched Kinerase Pro+Therapy is a sterling addition to the line, in keeping with the brand’s commitment to results and quality.
