B.Kamins, the luxury spa skin care line that emphasizes clinical results, is named for founder and CEO Ben Kaminsky. Mr. Kaminsky has over 40 years experience as a dermatological chemist and has created a whole slew of prescription and over-the-counter products. While B.Kamins has products for men and women that address all types of skin conditions, it’s especially good for very sensitive, hormone-deprived (ahem) mature skin.
I love this line; it feels very luxurious and yet professional at the same time. I think it lives up to its mission, which is ‘the fusion of Science and Spa’. I appreciate the fact that B.Kamins manufactures its own products in its own pharmaceutical facility so the highest quality is maintained. They also use only the highest pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, resulting in terrific skin care products that work.
I have been testing the Nia-Stem Serum, Eye Cream, and Moisturizer for the past month. The packaging is beautiful – it’s simple and calming, and the packaging protects the products from bacterial contamination and deterioration from the sun, which means the effectiveness lasts over time.
The Nia-Stem Serum Kx ($135) is an anti-aging serum that also evens out skin tone. B.Kamins says “The unique combination of ingredients including niacin, plant stem cells and our exclusive Bio-Maple™ Compound minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and age spots.”
While my fine lines and dark spots haven’t gone away completely, they do look better than they did a month ago. Inside is niacin and plant set cells to increase cell turnover, so it repairs skin and strengthens it at the same time. I like this serum a lot, it does what it says it’s supposed to do. This serum should work for all skin types. I use this every morning and every night.
The Nia-Stem Eye Cream Kx ($90) is really wonderful. Marcia loves eye creams, so I almost feel guilty every time I use this because I know she would love it. Do I feel guilty enough to give it to her? Nope. I’m keeping this one! Like the serum, it has niacin and plant stem cells to repair and rejuvenate. It also instantly brightens under the eye.
It seems to have a slight sort of shimmer that reflect light and is very flattering. This is a drier eye cream, there is no down time between application and being ready for makeup. I use this every morning and every night and I love how it minimizes puffiness under my eyes.
The Nia-Stem Moisturizer Kx ($125) is also made with niacin and plant stem cells and is all about fighting off those awful signs of aging and improving the appearance of skin.
This is a terrific moisturizer for those with an oily t-zone as it moisturizes but doesn’t saturate the skin. It leaves skin feeling extremely silky and soft.
Together this trio of products from B.Kamins makes for a beautiful skin care system that evens skin tone, improves texture, and fights against further damage. It boosts cell metabolism to lessen fine lines, wrinkles, redness, and hyperpigmentation. I am very impressed with this line and can’t wait to try other products. – Lisa
