I was recently given the Kinerase Skin Ritual kit and decided to try it for a few months. I have been an avid Skinceuticals girl for more than three years, and I think they have some great products, but I have heard wonderful things about the Kinerase Ultra line. First, whats in the kit: Pro+Therapy Daily Defense Lotion with Kinetin and Zeatin+ SPF30, Pro+Therapy C6 Peptide with Kinetin and Zeatin, and Pro+Therapy Ultra Rich Night Repair.
For the morning application you cleanse your face, then wipe with toner (not necessary, but it better allows skin ph to absorb treatment), then apply Pro+Therapy Daily Defense Lotion with Kinetin and Zeatin + SPF30. In the evening you wash, tone, then apply Pro+Therapy C6 Peptide with Kinetin and Zeatin followed by Pro+Therapy Ultra Rich Night Repair.
Kinerases' newest product, Pro+Therapy C6 Peptide Intensive Treatment with kinetin AND zeatin is enhanced with zeatin for "mature" or severely photodamaged skin. If you've been following the scientific advances Valeant Pharmaceuticals has made with zeatin you know the combination of kinetin and zeatin works in the dermis where collagen and elastin are produced to better help improve the appearance of wrinkles by stimulating new collagen growth. Also new is the key ingredient, Argireline, an advanced hexapeptide. It's the latest, greatest beauty breakthrough.

I have been using the three products for about a month now and, I kid you not, my skin looks fantastic. It looks plumper with greatly diminished fine lines and my complexion is more clear. I think the super rich moisturizer, as well as the C6 Peptide are the difference. While Skinceuticals B5 is a great moisturizer, it doesn't compare to the Pro Therapy Ultra Rich night repair. I'm definitely going to stick with these products.
