Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum uploaded by Reyna P.
WOW! this formula makes my face look and feel as though I got a face lift!!!! my skin looks so flawless after having used this, it is sooooo amazing. I've used this product for 1 week and love how rejuvenated my skin looks. The best part about this formula is that you can see results immediately after the VERY FIRST use. The serum doesn't have a real strong smell and it is a clear off-white color that dries on the face pretty quickly. I use this underneath my makeup and my makeup looks smooth and I see less of the fine lines and wrinkles. It is a bit expensive but with the results that I've experienced so far, I know that I will buy more of this once I run out.

I started using this serum a week ago and already noticed a change in my skin definitely a great product ! The smell is pretty terrible but thats probably a good thing making it more natural . Serum is thick and a little goes a long way , absorbs right up and doesn’t leave skin tacky or sticky although I don’t recommend layering if you have oily or combo skin makeup will look extra caked (i only layer at night) So happy I got this in boxy and will def be buying again even at its 98$ tag I think it’s worth it !!

Kate Somerville Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum is A definite Holy Grail For Me! I've received this in my Boxycharm collection and I've only used it for 3 days so far! Let me just say...I have 44 yr old semi mature skin texture and this gem has started correcting any fine lines I have and it also improves the dull appearance of our facial skin While the product is originally 98.00 on beauty sites .. This is so worth every penny!! Please try this and comment below, your thoughts and EXPERIENCE

I have been using face serums for several years. I have older, mature skin. I am 70. I have the Kate Somerville Goat Milk moisturizer, the Exfolikate, the Plus Retinol Eye Cream and the DermalQuench Liquid Lift. I just starting using this Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum as well. It feels so nice going on the skin. Kate Somerville makes some great products. I have not tried anything that I did not like, so much so, that I am willing to pay the price on the website.

. I have used for a week and I really like it so far. It is light and it leaves my skin feeling smooth, without any heavy lotion feel or greasy residue. There is barely any scent which is great for those that are sensitive to smells. I have noticed that the wrinkles on my forehead are less noticeable and my overall skin tone is much more even. I would definitely purchase again and recommend to anyone looking for a great skin care solution for fine lines and help with firmness.

I received this as one of the items in my boxycharm box this month. I never used a serum before so I was very excited on using it. After using it, I noticed that it did have a strange smell but I can get over that. I liked how it made me skin feel so firm but hydrated. It helps firm, lift, and smooth the face. I cant wait to continue using this product! I would definitely recommend it! Retails for $98.00 #katesomerville #serum #refreshing #hydrating

I absolutely love this serum. As with most Kate Sommerville products, it is pretty pricey, but its definitely worth it. It contains 5 peptides to firm, smooth, and hydrate the skin. The smell is not the best, but that doesn't bother me... I actually prefer my skin care to not have fragrance (fragrance usually means it has alcohol). I love how it makes my skin look and feel!

Purchased at: Sephora
So far, I’m not loving this. The instant smell of glue was a first disappointing experience. It glides around my face like water while applying then dries a bit tacky, also disappointing. The price is wild too! Now, I haven’t noticed any instant wrinkle relief so fingers crossed it does do something after continuous use. I would strongly suggest getting a sample of this before buying the big bottle at retail for $98.

What is the smell on the Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum ? I got it on my BoxyCharm and it has a funny smell So i was wondering if that is how it's supposed to smell or there is something wrong with mine
Mindy F. • 4 days ago
Mine has a certain smell to it as well. Not like a bad weird though. It smells like a medical serum to me. Which is definitely not a bad thing! 😁 I’ve been using it the past week and it’s been doing wonders for my skin.

This is a lightweight serum. Not too moisturizing, it dries quickly. I have not yet used it under foundation I use this as a nightly regimen and in the morning to brighten up my complexion just to run those morning errands prior to putting makeup on my face. I'll tell you what I'll do, so to prevent you from spending money on something that would be a mis- understood product for you. Today I'll put this on under my daily makeup and then I'll answer you again. Im all about treat others like I'd like to be treated and I believe strongly that this method would help you out.. by being able to honestly answer that question prior to your purchasing it..I could prevent you from buying something that wouldn't work for you...so I'll be back sweetheart today is Tuesday Feb 4, 2020 RESULT: Ok I've done as I claimed I would and have worn this under my makeup today, I don't recommend that this be worn prior to makeup application because it did not have positive results for me. It gave off a film and my foundation looked too greasy over it. I definitely would use this only as skin care regiment. I wanted this to perform without any interference under my foundation. However, it did not I use high end foundation such as Estee Lauder Double Wear and you'd think it would give off better results with this serum added underneath..So ladies please use your best judgement, it just doesn't layer well for me. As a skin care regiment it does wonders for fine lines and dull sagging mature skin
