KARYNG Skincare by Dr. Karyn Grossman is the latest company that Beauty Info Zone has been introduced to; we want to further this introduction since the two products we were sent to test have been wonderful.
If you read Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, Vogue, MORE etc. you might have seen Dr. Grossman mentioned in articles, especially since she was named one of the five “hot derms”. Besides her dermatology business she’s also a top cosmetic surgeon with a long list of famous patients.
Her skincare was founded on her belief that inflammation is at the root of most skin problems so she developed products to address this issue.
Karyng’s active, high-performance ingredients target the key signs of aging: fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven pigmentation, inflammation, and dullness to help deliver a fresh, youthful appearance. Rich antioxidants combat inflammation and help repair and restructure skin. Every product in the line contains exclusive Pro-Verte Technology, a naturally-based proprietary complex designed to maximize anti-aging and anti-inflammatory results.
There is a lot to be excited about when it comes to this thick, creamy nighttime moisturizer. New to me are keratinocyte growth factors that actually increase the thickness of the skin. Your skin thins out as you age, which is one reason why dark undereye circles become so prominent, and why wrinkles start to develop. The results reported for this cream are pretty impressive: it reduces the appearance of deep and fine lines, increases collagen by 6.8% in 11 days, increases elastin by 190% to improve firmness and elasticity within 15 days, and evens skin tone and texture. That doesn’t even include the other benefits:
Double protection against oxidative stress from UV exposure and glycation
Boost DNA repair from UV-B induced damage
Provide 24 hour skin hydration decreasing dryness by 60%
Rebuild skin’s barrier to help protect
This is a shea butter and olive oil based moisturizer that I find definitely keeps my skin moist and soft. The other ingredients are excellent – lots of cutting edge stuff that hydrates, repairs, fights free radicals, protects skin from photo-aging, creates new epidermis, unplugs pores, and evens skin tone.
The Karyng Restructuring Night Cream is one of those moisturizers that give immediate gratification in addition to all the long-term benefits. Rub a small amount on the back of one hand and wait a few minutes. Then feel the difference between that hand and your other one – it’s incredible. That effect lasts until you wash your hands and even then the treated hand is still noticeably softer. Of course, you put this moisturizer on your face at night after cleansing and toning, so it won’t be washed off. That means all those wonderful ingredients are busy for hours and hours, putting the ‘beauty’ in ‘beauty sleep’.
My only gripe? It’s jar packaging, so don’t be tempted to stick your fingers in there – use a scoop of some sort. And you’ve got to use the entire jar quickly or the ingredients lose their integrity and effectiveness. If you can vow to keep your hands out of the jar, keep the lid on tight in between uses, and faithfully use this every night, I think you will be extremely pleased with the results because this is a winning night cream.
Unlike Lisa I have no gripes at all. Karyng packed their Revitalizing Eye Cream exactly how one should be packaged. The light green jar is opaque with a silver twist top. You reveal the pump when you need it and then twist back to seal. The efficacy of the ingredients is safe within.
One of the first things I noticed on the Revitalizing Eye Cream jar says this “90% Nature, 10% Science”. I thought that was an interesting way to show how the ingredients are the winners here. All Karyng products are formulated without parabens, petroleum, pesticides, propylene or butylene glycols, phthalates, BPA’s, PEG’s, TEA, DEA, GMO, glutens, or synthetic fragrances. They are vegan and not tested on animals.
The two problems I most want to work on with an eye cream are the puffiness I get under my eyes along with the dark circles that go hand in hand with them. Of course I want my fine lines to be hidden but that’s not my main goal. Revitalizing Eye Cream works on all of these in a light, easily absorbed cream. I notice a lightening effect under my eyes in the morning when I awake and to keep that going I use it when I’m putting on my skincare each day.
The ingredients are incredible and will keep me using this for some time to come.
Holoxyl TM – Tripeptide-5, and soy-rice peptides are clinically proven to reduce dark circles, puffiness and inflammation.
Eyeliss TM 3% – A combination of 3 natural and effective peptides that work together to eliminate all the causes of eye bags
Niacinamide – Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, a potent cell-communicating ingredient that offers multiple benefits for aging skin.
The only thing better than having this opportunity to use these two products is if we could meet Dr. Karyn Grossman for a little extra help!
