Lisa K.'s (channelesque) Beauty Product Reviews
Primer and treatment in one!
This product is one of the better lash primer/serum I've tried. I love how it prime your lashes by "plumping" them as in thicken and lengthen lashes AND it also treat your lashes too! For me, this product works best best paired with Diorshow Iconic mascara; when paired with volumizing mascara like Diorshow Extase, it can get bit clumpy. It works best when curling or lengthening mascara is applied when Diorshow maximizer lash plumping serum is semi dry (25-30 sec after application). This product definitely helps lashes appear longer and it treats and conditions lashes well. My lashes feel healthier and I also feel like I'm loosing lashes.
This really works!
After being disappointed with Kinerase Brightening Serum I was a little reluctant to try another serum from Kinerase. But since I do highly regard the brand (due to their amazing lotion and cream!), I decided to try this out. another reason for buying this was the fact that the use of peptides for anit-aging products was becoming more and more recognized.
This product delivered what it claimed. Within couple of weeks of using this serum twice a day I saw a noticeable improvement on my skin. My skin achieve a clarity that I haven't seen for years. Skin felt smooth, plump, supple, and most importantly it was even toned! The minor discoloration I had on the sides of my face were gone and my entire face actually appeared one even tone! As for its wrinkle improving effects; I did have few very fine lines around my eyes which the eye treatment version of this same product effectively smoothed out but I did not have much wrinkles on other areas of my face to begin with so I can't say for fact that this serum will treat wrinkles, however, all the other stuff this product claimed came through and the eye serum version of same product did work to reduce wrinkles around the eye area so I'm confident that this product will also effectively treat wrinkle problems as well.
This product lasted about 2 months (I was using it twice a day and on my neck as well)
One of the best hydrating/moisturizing cream!
I absolutely adore this product! Actually, when I first used it I didn't like at all. I thought it wasn't "creamy" or moisturizing enough. It felt like I didn't put anything on my face! However, this product helped me learn that a cream doesn't have to be thick and oily to be super moisturizing. It felt like I had nothing on my face because it was all quickly absorbed into the skin! This product hydrates the skin like no other product! It's so gentle yet perfectly moisturizes and hydrates the skin without feeling oily and thick. It makes my skin feel so soft and supple. I love it!
I tried a smaller size that came in a set first and I loved it so much that I bought a full size right after and also got my mom into this stuff too. this can be used across all age groups! Gentle enough even for kids! They do have a lotion version of this stuff for oily skin but because it's not greasy I think this would work well as night crem even for oily skin people; perhaps for someone that needs extra hydration from skin drying out and flaking due to acne treatment?
One good product out of four?
The Gentle Daily Cleanser is too gentle! It does not effectively remove makeup and even as a morning cleaner I would have to use it twice to feel really "clean." It lathers up but feels kind of slippery...
Under Eye Rescue, it hydrates the eye area well but that's about it! It did not help with dark circles or puffiness. It's light cream texture and gets absorbed into skin well...
Brightening Face Serum; this stuff didn't deliver any long term results. I used the entire bottle and saw no difference in clarity of my skin. This does instantly illuminates that face but only while you wear it. This product has finely grounded shimmer stuff and you can feel it in the texture of the serum; that's what gave the illumination to the skin. It's basically a face serum with shimmers; finely ground glitters in serum texture product...
Cream; this product I absolutely adore! Actually, when I first used it I didn't like at all. I thought it wasn't "creamy" or moisturizing enough. It felt like I didn't put anything on my face! However, this product helped me learn that a cream doesn't have to be thick and oily to be super moisturizing. It felt like I had nothing on my face because it was all quickly absorbed into the skin! This product hydrates the skin like no other product! It's so gentle yet perfectly moisturizes and hydrates the skin without feeling oily and thick. It makes my skin feel so soft and supple. I love it!
Well, at least I discovered one amazing product from this otherwise disappointing skincare set!
I'm a fan of the brand Kinerase but this product was bit of disappointment. It didn't effectively clean my skin. It doesn't remove makeup so not a good face cleanser for someone that's been wearing makeup all day long. It almost felt too gentle to be a cleanser. I had to use a makeup remover first and then use this as a follow up cleanser but even then my skin just didn't feel completely clean unless I used it twice. It's an alright cleaner for morning when there's no makeup to clean off...
Four colors in one!
This is such a pretty product! Not only does the product itself look nice but it also looks amazing on the cheeks! There are four colors: peachy coral on centre with bits of bronze-y color and two strips of light baby pink and two more strips of dark rosey color. There were think lines of gold overspray initially but they all disappeared after using it 4-5 times. So for the first 4-5 times it was a shimmery product but after it turns into a matte finish cheek colors. The texture of the product is great; very soft and satin-like. If I want just the light coral color in centre I can easily dip the blush brush on the center but as for other colors, they are small bits and strips so it's hard to use them without getting it mixed with other colors around it. But you can definitely get few different colors by using mix of different areas. This product comes with a small blush brush. It's very small but convenient to have for touch ups. Overall I really like this product and may even get the #002 (I have #001).
