Saying that, it has been an exciting event as we also got to meet up Ms Valerie Lim (Ms Singapore 2011) on a upclose and personal level. Sitting beside a gorgeous beauty queen, I cannot help but feel smallish beside her. Fortunately, she is a very joyous and down to earth lady who shared her personal experience and observations after using Kinerase and of course some beauty tips. Seeing her smooth and pretty complexion after using Kinerase products, you cannot help but you need to try out the fantastic products. Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us, Valerie.

The story behind Kinerase®
Kinerase® is a premium professional skin care range, proven in clinical trials to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, tone and blotchiness. Kinerase® is suitable for all skin types, including dry, sensitive or post-procedural skin. The active ingredient in Kinerase® is a naturally occurring biofactor, scientifically shown to delay and even reverse the effects of aging in human skin cells.
With a strong legacy as leading brand in the US professional skin care market, Kinerase® is recognized by physicians and patients in Asia as a gentle, yet effective skin care regime, for monotherapy and in combination with other anti-aging treatments, such as laser.
Kinerase® is available in Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and received regulatory approval in China in late 2009.
About Kinerase – Be Kissed Timeless Beauty
Kinerase® is the only professional skincare line to contain optimal concentrations of a special ingredient called Kinetin (N6-furfuryladenine), a potent bio growth factor found naturally in human cell extracts and DNA1. Kinetin was found to be able to delay the onset of aging and also prevent the cellular changes associated with aging.2 0.1% Kinetin Lotion is also clinically proven to maintain more moisture in the skin with up to 26% decrease in trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL)3 . The results are healthier, smoother, and simply more beautiful and kiss-able skin.
Understanding skin aging
Research that focused on the biological aspects of aging has been conducted over the last fifty years.
The results of the research suggest that aging is the result of the progressive failure of an organism’s mechanisms to maintain, repair and survive.
With the above findings in mind, it is important to utilize the appropriate preventive strategies and interventions to prevent the premature aging of the skin.
The mechanisms of aging skin could be categorized into intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging.
Intrinsic aging is genetically determined, i.e., happening chronologically.
Extrinsic aging is influenced by external factors, such as exposure to UV light, smoking and pollution, dietary habits, physical activities, sleep quality, stress level, diseases, etc.

Reviews of the products tried?
I have checked with Dr. Sim (Medical director at Aesthetic Works) and mentioned that I am able to use the products as it is suitable to for sensitive and delicate skin.
At the moment, I have tried the gentle daily cleanser (milk and water based), the antioxidant mist, kinerase cream for my stomach stretch marks (instead of trying out on my face) and the eye cream.
I personally prefer the antioxidant mist (Product B) which is hydrating enough for me and does not cause my skin to break out. My skin is a test for any sensitive skin out there. One wrong move and the next instant, I can see redness on skin.
Kinerase cream (Product D) does help smoothen out and lighten out my stretch mark after using it for 3 days. I will need to use it for a longer period of time to test the actual effectiveness and update again. :)
Another favourite is the eye cream (Product E), my laugh lines (or so I call it) around the eye area was less obvious. Though in the first place, I do not have very deep "laugh lines" just subtle lines. The cream does help to make me eyes look more refreshed the next day even though I had less than 5 hours of beauty sleep.
