Hello Leigh.....I have already used about three jars of the KH eye cream. Although I can't really say that it actually "plumps" the eye area, I can say that when the eye cream is used over the Vit-A-Kombi oil the eye area is so superbly moisturized that (for me anyways) plumping doesn't become necessary anymore. Does that make sense??

Agree. It has been the nicest eye cream for me in terms of smoothing and softening the area. I honestly believe if you want plumping you probably have to do filler in the tear trough. But I do recommend trying the eye cream. I did comparisons with other high end products and this won hands down for me anyway.

Third jar... Also works great on the lips.

Yes...it does work nicely on the lips. I use a little Vit-A-Kombi oil first on the lips and then a tiny amount of KH eye cream over that. It sinks in nicely and the lips are well moisturized.

I also place a little of the eye cream just above the lips if they feel particularly drying - like on a cold winter day. It gives a nice boost of extra moisture.

So I used the vita kombi 2 for the first time last night and awoke to more even, smaller-pored skin! After one use this is great! I'm hoping over time it will better control my acne and eliminate the dreaded bright red marks they leave in their wake.

Marina - Oh true. the lightened eyebrows - I haven't used VK2 in a while and I'm itching to get back. I spent 2009 using up product overload and am finally at a point where I can sock in a few products.
KH really worked for me - along with a few others I need to get back to.

Joella Milan has the VK2 on her web site http://www.karinherzog-jmilan.com/Vita-A-Kombi-2_p_146.html

According to Joella KH is coming out with some new products this year.

Hello Happycat.....perhaps EDS is out of stock?? I can't see why VK 2 would be discontinued as it is an integral product in the whole KH skin care line.

I would suggest going into the EDS homepage and using the "contact us" link to just ask them why you cannot see VK 2 in the product list. They will certainly give you the correct reason why it is not available.

Thanks, I have done so and just got their reply. Yes, VK2 is out of stock and they are checking with the supplier to see if they can get an early shipment. As I am running short of VK2, I use the O2 instead in PM, it seems OK, do anyone know what is the difference between VK2 and O2, they both contain 2% oxygen.

The Oxygen Face Cream is more for excessively oily/problematic skin and is mildly antibacterial.

The VK 2 can be used by all skin types. It also contains Vitamin E and Retinol which the Oxygen Face Cream does not have.

I have viewed the KH producted list again, KH carries other Oxygen products like the VK + AHA or aprico. Looking for replacement at the moment, any comments?

Perhaps you could try the Choco2? It has 1.15% oxygen - not the 2% that you're looking for, but it is a nice cream. I'm on my second tube of it!!

There is a TON of great & helpful information here!

I am new to Karin Herzog's Skincare Line, as I just ordered my first product today.

I have chosen to start with the Vitamin A Kombi 2%. I am trying to fade some small lines around the eyes and even my skin texture. (Hopefully this will help)

Thanks for all the helpful information on this thread, as I have a long time to go before I will be at the end, but I will try to keep up!!!

Thank you BluesHeart for the indepth coverage of the cleansing cream. I appreciate it! Smile What is the one KH product you would purchase if you could only choose one? I've been doing a little research and she has something called Additional Day Cream which can be used in addition to the other creams if they aren't hydrating enough. Both Spalook.com and Dermstore.com are now selling this line.


It would be either one of the Vita K formulations or the Oxygen cream, depending on your skin and what you want. I think the Vita K's are considered the star of the line. And my experience would probably concur.

Riley, I haven't tried the gentle milk. According the official sites, it's the one recommended for oilier people. Or those who prefer a more traditional cleanser.


Is the Vita K you are referring to the same as the Vit A Kombi? I have "skimmed" through this thread, but I am just now reading "all" of it....

Thanks in advance!

Hello MentorAmy05....yes, the product referred to is Vita-A-Kombi and there are two types in the KH line. Vita-A-Kombi with 1% oxygen and the other one at 2 % oxygen which is the one you purchased. I would just like to add that I would not recommend putting the Vita-A-Kombi around the eyes as the 2% oxygen would be far too strong for the delicate eye area. It would be best to use the KH eye cream instead. It has 0.5% oxygen so you can see that it is milder and more suited for the eyes. Just a small note; I have been using KH for over a year now and have used about three or four pots of this eye cream already as it is a fantastic product. I've given two jars to my sister who loves it too. Anyways, this is just my opinion. I hope I have helped you.

Okay, so sorry, but I have another question.

Is Jojoba & hazelnut oil (I rotate them at night) okay to use over the VIT-A Kombi 2? Should it be used over or under the VIT-A Kombi (If it is okay to use)?

Thanks so much for the response & info.

I am wanting to use it daily, so I am hoping that too much dryness does not occur! Do you know if the Jojoba & Hazelnut Oil would be okay, as mentioned above?

Thank you!

It certainly wouldn't hurt to use them over the Vita-A-Kombi cream but there is a product in the KH line called Vita-A-Kombi oil that has jojoba esters as one of the ingredients and is designed to be used under the Vita-A-Kombi creams to allow for a slower absorption of the oxygen and to help those with more delicate skins. I think a little oil either under or over would be fine. If you have very sensitive skin I would put it under.

I'm not a big eye cream person but this is head and shoulders above anything I've ever tried.

I would say it is okay to put jojoba over The VK 2 but not under.
I would allow the VK2 to settle into the skin for 20 minutes before putting the jojoba on. You might neutralize the benefits of the retinal if you put it on too soon and definitely if you put it underneath the VK.

Brighten up dull skin for that special evening: Start with Karin Herzog Mild Scrub to remove dead skin. Follow with their Oxygen Mask. For best results, leave the mask on the skin for 15 to 20 minutes and to increase penetration, cover with Saran Wrap. You'll glow in the dark.

http://www.skinterra.com/education/skintips.html

...treating yourself to an oxygen facial may be the best introduction to the product line. "It's a deceptively simple process," Spanek says,"that achieves great results." In fact, all the equipment Spanek really needs, she says, is the Herzog products and some Saran Wrap. "But I know my clients like the bells and whistles," she says. Which is why Visage oxygen facials are sheer pampered luxury, and come, with dim lightening, Bach and Vivaldi violin concertos playing softly in the background and the delicious steam machine. After a cleansing and a scrub with Herzog product, Spanek applies oxygen emulsion face cream and covers it with Saran Wrap. Then comes extraction, a neck and shoulder massage with Herzog Vitamin A oil, the application of Vitamin A oxygen mask, and a final application of the appropriate Vita-A-Kombi cream.

Smile



Can this be done with the Vita-A Kombi only? (Saran Wrap use)

Sister Sweets, what does your saying of "I'm not a big eye cream person" refer to???? The VK2 is for entire face, correct??? (That is what I am reading, so I am not certain what you mean by the eye area)(?) (Sorry, I may be lost) Smile

Do you personally use the Hazelnut Oil with the VVK2?

Also, instead of using the Jojoba or Hazelnut oil, would it be okay to use Olay Pro X,(or any other OTC Cream) on top of the VK2? (temporarily until I can afford the other KH Cream)
