WHAT? : Kinerase skin lotion
WHY? : Because it contains¬†a secret ingredient : N6-furfuryladenine. Sounds like something out of a chemistry text book, doesn’t it? ¬†You then might ask yourself – do I really want this on my face?¬† Oh yes,¬†you do!¬†¬†
Otherwise known as “kinetin”, this plant-based antioxidant has been found to¬†delay age related change¬†in plants. Studies have shown that the compound may also delay or prevent a range of cellular changes associated with aging of human skin cells. In lay person’s terms – it slows the skin’s “aging” process. It’s not the fountain of youth, but any delay is better than none, right?
Kinerase also claims that this lotion is¬†clinically proven to improve skin hydration by 25%. And we all known that hydration is the first step to fighting signs of aging.¬†
Developed by pharmaceutical company Valeant, this product is not your average beauty product. Don’t expect to find it encased in a cute package and smelling of all things ‘sugar and spice’. This is a no nonsense… give it to me straight… out of the lab….¬†into my cosmetic bag …. and onto my face, kind of product!
When applied onto the skin, this product feels velvety and leaves a matte finish. It is non-comedogenic, hypallergenic¬†and¬†fragrance free. An excellent product for sensitive skin. If your skin type is toward the dry side then you might opt for¬†their “cream” version. And if you would like SPF protection – both the lotion and cream is available with SPF 30.
HOW MUCH? : $119 / 80ml
