Omg i am hooked, only cream that absolutely makes difference for skin texture, pores..ect..overall health of my facial skin..Its super expensive! I can go through the 2.8 oz in just 1 or 2 months! as I use this 2x per day, sometimes rubbing more periodically when i feel I need to. The texture of the Lotion and Cream are non greasy super fast absorbing almost water like.

Eh. This cream has a texture like the old fashioned Johnson and Johnson first aid cream. It is not oily, but it does have thickeners and feels waxy. It clogs my poors. It smells like wax. And it does not do wonders. Pricey to boot.

I used this moisturizer for almost 3 years straight, daily. It is a very light moisturizer with anti-aging benefits. After using it for over 3 years, I noticed that it stopped working it's magic, and that my nasolabial lines were harder to diminish; also, the forehead, frown lines were not getting smooth either. If I would make a gesture, the skin would remain wrinkled for a minute before going back to smooth. This was a major difference than how it was when I first started the treatment: The lines would disappear instantly. Also, when I do get the occasional break out, it doesn't speed up the time of healing--like I see in Alchemy, La Mer, and Strivectin. It does last a long time, and I would use this as a basic moisturizer, but I would not depend on it for serious anti-aging benefits.

I've used this since I was in my 20's on my forehead only, in the morning and evening. I layer serums and heavier moisturizers over it. It's always worked great for me!

Its expensive and its only alright. This product didn't do anything remarkable for me, but it did a fairly standard job.

There is no fancy packaging or amazing smell with this cream - it looks like your normal drug store brand and smells like clay. It makes a great day cream because it leaves skin soft without any shiny, oily residual. Also, it does not cause any pimple or whitehead. However, it could feel a bit dry if used alone in the winter months. I would put a serum before applying this cream. Overall, a simple, hassle-free everyday lotion for me. For the anti-aging and skin-brightening effect, I might have to wait till I am older to notice.

Got a free sample of this, thank God I didn't pay a dime for it. I had the absolute worst allergic reaction to this product. I put this one at night and went to sleep, woke up with a raised, swollen, itchy rash all over my entire face with tiny red and white bumps. I had to call out of work and soak my face with a cool compress so I didn't claw at my itchy skin. It took almost a week to heal my face. Worst...cream...ever.

Ok this is expensive and if I didn't get kickback sephora gift cards from my credit card, I don't know if I would get it, but it is an excellent cream.
First it takes a awhile to work. I got the introductory size and it lasted me a little over 2 months, and it took 2 months for me to see results.
This cream makes your skin supple, soft, clear, even and just creates an overall "glow" that makes you look more youthful. Something with the way kinetin holds moisture and the antioxidant.
As far as eradicating any lines, I think it helps soften them, but you probably will need something stronger to actually get rid of them.
I think this cream is more for preventative and to help you skin from aging instead of reverse the signs of aging. Everyone I know who uses it look 10 years younger.
For example, I ran into a friend from high school at the park with her kids and mom. Her mom looked exactly the same! Seriously she is in her 50s and looked 35! She told me she used Kinerase. Her husband works for the manufactuer and gets it for free and she has been using since it came out in the 90s. She said basically it dramatically slowed down the aging of her skin. So I think it is more of a preventative thing.

I waited at least 3 months prior to reviewing this product. I tried this for the purpose of brightening, tightening and helping to keep aging at bay as I enter my 30s. My skin used to be acne-prone/combination. Since using this line - and the lotion - it has seemed to be more like Normal skin.
I used the lotion with very positive results. I would cleanse with my normal routine; the only thing that I changed was adding this in in the evenings, and I would use it in the AM every other day. Excellent results. I found it left a perfect finish on my skin, like there was almost no product there. No shine, grease, etc. Also, my skin felt like it "drank" the moisture. Lastly, it helped to fade scars from my acne and impatient picking. It also brightened my complexion. My best friend and husband noticed a difference after a few weeks - and I noticed a difference when I stopped needing to wear powder/foundation. Now, I only use a concealer to spot treat one scar, which is still gradually fading.
I am impressed. This is expensive at retail, but you can find it cheaper on eBay. I'm comfortable with that. Using this lotion made me try other products in the line - which I am also growing to like so far.I do believe the Kinerase line has strong ant-aging properties - and for those of us trying to prepare for 40-something + skin that doesnt want to Botox, these types of investments (and a healthy lifestyle) up front now will make all the difference later.

After using the sample with no problem, I bought the tube. With 2 weeks of use, my dry skin became extremely dry, red, and irritated, like with a burning sensation. The fine, rashy bumps I have on my face became more pronounced, and flakiness (on my skin) increased. While it makes the skin soft, it doesn't make the skin moist, if that makes sense, so it felt increasingly harsh on my sensitive, dry, thin skin (even though I live in a tropical environment). I give it a 2 though because it made my skin look brighter, plumper, and the pores smaller, though the effects wore off in less than 8 hours every day. Also eliminated surface oil. Overall, an expensive mistake.

I really like this as a cream though I dont use it everyday, i ONLY use it when my sensitive skin needs good moisture. My skin is combo oily with dry patches here and there, the reason i didnt give this product a full 5 lippies is because when i put it on my cheecks next to my nose (where my pores get clogged the most) it seems to me that my pores got clogged and were more noticeable, I suppose it was just my fault though because i put a thick layer on. It doesnt irritate my skin and im not acne prone so i cant tell if it causes acne or works well with acne prone skins. I do loove to use this after I've had a breakout though because i cant just leave blemishes alone i tend to pick at my skin sometimes! so if my skin is dry and irritated I put this on and its smooths the skin out and it drinks up the cream! Sooo overall its a great moisturizer! :) and works well with my skin. Doesnt make me oily and doesnt feel greasy at all. the scent is like sunflower seeds... Random i know. Its not unpleasant though.

This product changed my life. I was browsing in Sephora when out of the corner of my eye I saw a small tube of cream for $120. I thought "Holy crap! I've gotta try me some $120 cream!" And I tried some of the tester on my hand. My skin drank up the cream. Ten minutes later it felt like 5 year old skin. I couldn't stop touching it. I was absolutely amazed. Kinerase changed my life because in that moment, I became the type of person who will spend over $100 on a single tube of cream. It's that good. I've been using it for about three weeks now and in the mornings when I wake up I have fewer fine lines under my eyes, less puffiness, and even the deeper horizontal lines on my forehead are smoother. The cream has 0.1% of the furfury stuff (= kinetin, a plant hormone that promotes cell growth). I think I might purchase the Restructure Firming Cream next which has 0.15% furfuryladenine. Bottom line, I love it. -1 star star because 5 stars is reserved for the ultimate product with Jesus powers that, to my knowledge, hasn't been discovered yet. Kinerase comes close.

I have rosacea and continue to repurchase this cream because it is one of the few creams that doesn't sting as soon as it hits my skin. I love the feel of my skin after putting it on! I agree with the previous commenter - that I keep running my fingers over my face b/c it is so soft. It is not that more expensive than other creams out there and for me, it is worth it.

I didn't buy it the first time - had a cyst removed from my hand years back and the plastic surgeon had small samples of this cream in a bowl at the check out counter. I had no clue what it was - but OMG.. I will *never* forget this stuff. My skin never felt so good, ever. I occasionally get dry patches on my chin or near my nose and after using this, not a hint of dry skin anywhere. It wasn't greasy, and I remember I touched my skin a lot while I was using it - I was so silky, it was hard not to! Have wanted to buy this ever since, but once I saw the prices, there just was no way at the time. Haven't priced it recently, maybe it's gone down. I just had to say.. this stuff is wonderful, truly. I learned how the other half lives, for a week anyway. If you like soft, smooth, unbelievably silky skin.. you have to try it :)

Oh my God I LOVE this product. It makes my skin feel and look great. My skin is oily AND gets flakes and this does a great job of getting rid of the flakes and actually alleviates the oiliness because my skin is being properly moisturized. This stuff is WAY expensive but I've never bought it i just take home samples of it from work. I might buy some when we get 40% off again.

I started using this cream 2 years ago and my skin never looked better, in conjuction with Estee Lauder's Advanced night repair. However, 2 years in, my skin is getting dry and flaky and the cream is just not working for me anymore. I used Olay sensitive cream for many years previously but stopped because I turned 30 and thought I needed some wrinkle prevention. I may go back to Olay now after I finish Kinerase since it is soooo expensive.
EDIT: My skin had a horrible reaction to biotherm skin perfection (see review) and as I had this 2 year old tube still in my bathroom I thought maybe it could help. Well, let me tell you that my skin looked the worst it has ever looked and this cream, within 3 days, saved it!!!! Not only that but it cleared up the pimples, black heads, evened my skin tone, got rid of the redness!!!! Ok Kinerase, I am back to you!

I have sensitive skin and this product doesn't bother me at all. I have absolutely no redness from applying this cream. I use it to slow down aging and improve skin tone. It is not a moisturizer. I use a moisturizer over this product or use this cream at night. I believe it should be used twice a day but I can never seem to stick to that. I recommend this for rosacea type skin. The cream is nicer than the lotion in my opinion, just personal preference. The cost is high but the cream lasts a long time. I always have this on hand.

This product is great! I have combination acne-prone skin that gets very dry in the winter. I started out using this product after doing a glycolic acid peel as I wanted something soothing and all of my other moisturizers contain acne treating ingredients that would be too harsh. Even just using this once a week made my face glowy and fresh. It sinks right in, tones down redness and feels very soft. Now that the weather is colder and I am dry more often I have started using this and it moisturizes immediately. The reason I am giving this a 5 is because my skin is so touchy. This is the first moisturizer I have found that doesn't make me break out and if anything helps my breakouts. I'm not sure if I will buy it again because of the price, but I'm hoping mine lasts a long time!

I've been using this cream for a little over a month. It's definitely a cream, but it sinks in after a minute or so. My skin is moisturized all day, without a greasy feeling whatsoever. I have combo skin with redness...I no longer get as many pimples and it has helped with some of my redness.
The reason why I'm giving it 4 lippies is because I have to use a lot in order for the product to spread over my face. I love the consistency and finish, but I just purchased the lotion and i don't have to use as much product.
I was definitely skeptical about spending so much on an anti-aging cream, especially since I don't have any signs of aging (yet). The associate at sephora suggested it to me because my skin is very reactive and breaks out, and kinerase is non comedogenic. I'm so glad I was introduced to this skincare line because I've tried so many different creams with little to no result.
I would use the cream again if i have super dry skin, but for now I'll be using the lotion.

I had gotten some free samples of this from either my dermatologist or skincarerx.com. You only need about a pea sized amount for the entire face. I found it creamy and moisturizing without being greasy. Sinks in quickly. The finished look was quite matte. After about an hour, my face didn't feel quite as moisturized anymore. My complaint is that for this price, you should be moisturized all day long (like my unrefined shea butter does and for 1/10th of the cost). I definitely feel that this product is priced way too high for what it delivers. I liked the samples but will not be purchasing the product.
