09 Mar Review, Ingredients, Swatches: B. Kamins Nia-Stem Line And BB Cream: Niacin, Plant Stem Cells Treats Wrinkles, Acne, Hyperpigmentation
Reboost your skin’s DNA with B. Kamins New Nia-Stem line of skincare. It is possible to repair and strengthen your skin with niacin and plant stem cell technology — boosting cell metabolism to fight fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, dark spots, redness, acne — any type of skin trouble at all! You name it — this stuff will do wonders for your skin!
Niacin (also known as vitamin B3) — Prolongs cell life, stimulating microcirculation by repairing and protecting the skin from sun damage. It is also an anti-inflammatory, wrinkle-fighting ingredient that reduces dark spots, improves skin texture — making it good for acne and rosacea sufferers.
Plant Stem Cell — Stimulates a mild reaction to the skin to promote tissue regeneration, reducing redness and detoxifying skin cells for extreme clarity. It promotes skin’s ability to regenerate, repairs fine lines and wrinkles and preserves a youthful appearance.
Bio-Maple Compound — A moisturizing agent that contains AHAs and antioxidants to hydrate and brighten the face and neck
Collagen & Elastin — Structures sagging and aging skin
Polymethylsilsequinone — Hydrates, moisturizes and softens skin. Potentially directs skin proliferation, which means it will keep the cells multiplying in a healthy way
Rice Bran Extract (8%) — Softens, moisturizes and prevents water loss forming a protective barrier
Oligopeptide-4 — Skin looks healthy, stronger, can lessen wrinkle depth
Lineoleic Acid — Nourishes sensitive skin
Hyaluronic Acid — Creates a plumping-effect of the skin, increasing that “cushioning” effect stimulating collagen synthesis
Vitamin E Acetate — Antioxidant, anti-aging emollient
Wheat Germ Oil — Vitamin E and D moisturizes the skin
Upon using the Serum Kx and Moisturizer Kx I was skeptical at first. So, I tested only one part of my face (an ideal move when trying out new products — especially as frequently as I do — to avoid any negative reactions).
My aunt, whom I gave the Eye Cream Kx to try (it was too harsh on my eyes; she said that it helped contour her upper lids, making it much easier to apply her eyeshadow) noticed that one side of my face (the side I had been using the Serum Kx and Moisturizer Kx on) looked and felt smoother than the other.
These two products literally changed the texture of my skin! I have sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin, and I never broke out from using these products. I saw the redness in my face (due to acne scarring) and pore size diminish as well. I was also layering these two products with others, including some of my acne treatments, and never had any negative results.
I would recommend using the Serum Kx at night, since it does feel a bit sticky on the skin (I could feel it when I would sleep and lay on my pillow), but it is so worth it. Feel free to use the Moisturizer Kx whenever, morning and/or night. I at first thought that it wouldn’t be moisturizing enough, due to its light consistency, but it really does work well with the Serum Kx.
B. Kamins has also introduced their own BB Cream! Yes, you heard right — an age-fighting, redness-reducing, skin-firming, free radical-fighting BB Cream ($49.00) that is just… just… wonderful (seriously, it just works!). Some of the ingredients found in this 8-in-1 BB Cream are:
Hexapeptide-14 & Goji Berry — Maximize synergistic effect, improving skin elasticity and fighting collagen damage.
Hydroxyproline (Fibre Building Block) — Reduces wrinkle depth, increasing skin firmness by affecting fibre contraction and mositurizes
Hyaluronic Acid — Stimulates collagen production, plumping and firming the skin
Vitamin C — Antioxidant that fights free radicals and brightens skin
Bio-Maple Compound — Moisturizing agent that contains AHAs and antioxidants to hydrate and brighten the face
I like to apply it to a clean, moisturized face. Once applied, my skin looks luminous, and, if I need a little more coverage, I would just apply my Rachel K CC Cream on top.
This line has really made me love my skin — and that is a statement I rarely declare! Although they are a bit pricey, these items work wonders. And they last a long time: I have been using them everyday for about two weeks now and I still haven’t hit the halfway mark. If your skin needs some help, regardless of its concern, treat yourself by trying this line out now!
