Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Lift & Resculpt Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

The most age fighting eye cream in the world is no good if it stings your eyes. Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Lift & Resculpt Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream is for all skin types, even sensitive. What we liked the most about it is that we could apply generous amounts to the eye area without irritation. And no overpowering scent! The directions state that this should be applied during the evening. However, we found that we could use during the day under makeup as it’s non-greasy. This gave our skin great texture and as promised improved the appearance of lines around the eyes. The product main ingredients include kinetin, which is an antioxidant plant complex that keeps cells healthier longer and snap-8 peptide which is said to relax the look of wrinkles. Click here for our reviews of other Dr. Lewinn products, which are sold at Walgreens, Duane Reade, and Wal-Mart.

La Roche-Posay Mela-D Dark Spots

Friday, October 28th, 2011

It used to be that most skin lighteners contained hydroquinone.  However, in 2006 FDA proposed a ban on the over the counter sale of cosmetics with this ingredient that was so popular to reduce age spots and blemishes. So why the ban? Studies showed some evidence that hydroquinone had some cancer causing properties. 2010 studies also showed that there was a link between hydroquinone and ochronosis, a condition where the skin gets dark and thick. Skin care companies have since found alternate ingredients to use for skin lightening. For example, La Roche-Posay’s Mela D Dark Spots contains Kojic Acid and LHA. You can use this as a daily moisturizer for age spots, sun spots, liver spots, and freckles. It’s also safe for sensitive skin. We tried this for a week and noticed a difference. We really liked that since it’s non-greasy we could use it in the morning beneath our makeup and at night. We noticed a nice improvement, but found that their other product, Mela-D Serum, gives faster results. If you haven’t heard of La Roche-Posay it is a skincare company that bases its products around healing thermal spring water. Their products are all designed not to irritate delicate skin so they are fragrance free and tested on sensitive skin.

Here is a resource for those who have a passion for beauty and want to learn more.

Lumene Excellent Future Deep Repairing Serum

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

In terms of getting the job done with fighting aging, serums are the way to go. Many people ask what the point of using a serum is when you can always use a moisturizer with anti-aging ingredients. But the anti-age ingredients aren’t as potent when mixed with a product that is also tasked to moisturize your skin. So what goes on first, the serum or the moisturizer? You put the serum on first, and then the next layer is your moisturizer. When you have oily skin, sometimes a serum is a great way to have something to protect your skin and you can skip the moisturizer. We found that Lumene’s Excellent Future Deep Repairing Serum gave skin great texture and as promised reduced the depth of existing wrinkles. But what we liked most was that it’s fragrance free and 90% natural. We tried it on sensitive skin and didn’t see any irritation. If you haven’t heard of Lumene before, it’s a Finland based company that makes skincare from Artic berries and plants which are said to be very resilient.

Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Wrinkle Repair Daily Lotion SPF 30

Friday, September 9th, 2011

It’s good to see that more anti-age lotions that are lightweight enough for oily skin are coming on the market. One of them is Dr Lewinn’s Wrinkle Repair Daily Lotion SPF 30. Protecting your skin against the sun is key, and this moisturizer has an SPF of 30. But  what we liked the most was that the formula quickly absorbed into our skin, and wore well under makeup. We expected a greasy look since this product emphasizes moisture but we got great results, even on our testers with more oily skin. Wrinkle Repair Daily Lotion SPF 30 is said to work by restoring skin structure so the surface holds on to more water. We saw younger, more dewy looking skin. But if you have deep wrinkles or creases you may want a heavier product.

Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase Instant Dermal Wrinkle Filler

Friday, July 15th, 2011

If you are impatient with skincare results you’ll like Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase Instant Dermal Wrinkle Filler. It has kinetin which promotes long-term wrinkle reduction over time, but it also smoothes wrinkles in ten minutes with osilift. Osilift is made of oat kernel sugars and creates an invisible film on the skin. This formula is also rich in anti-oxidants, a must for any anti-age product. Of course, this product doesn’t give the same results as injectables, but we thought it worked great for wrinkles.
