Rileygirl, it is so funny because today 2 people came up to me and said that I looked really good. I was shocked because I have had no sleep lately and I felt that I looked haggard. I LOVE this line.

Raising hand, it's in my basket at JoElla's! I'm also a bacteria-infested pigpen because I tingle!

ETA: I take it the AHA/Fruit Acids would replace one of my VK2 applications. Right now, I'm thinking my PM routine will include this. Now, I'm wondering where I should put the Vitamin H...alternate nights, maybe? I'm off to email JoElla and will report back.

Okay, here's the AHA. I got it confused with the Fruit Acids, though, I'm considering getting the FA for the Vita Kombi combo effect. Smile

Question - what's the 10% discount code for JoElla? I can't seem to track it down though I know I've seen it before!

Also, doesn't she provide free shipping on orders over a certain amount?

Scala, it is "SAVE". Yes! I think lucky US orders get the free shipping. Smile

Wow, I am glad it helped even those who are getting results! I already ordered the cleansing milk and the AHA last week, so that was nice to hear about that product. Hoping they will be shipped out soon!

Havana, glad it helped you!

Blues, you are too funny!

Scally, the instructions I read for the AHA is that you put that on first and then apply the Vita A Kombi product on top. I believe the code is SAVE, for amounts over $50, but I am not positive on that.

Cookie, that is great about the compliments!

The AHA can be used with the VK2. You apply the AHA first. But you can use it instead of the VK if you want. I've been using it for maybe a week.

Tsk Tsk ladies. I was just joking about ordering the cream AHA. What happened to the no acids thing? Hmmm. *watch her nose grow verrryy long*

I have to admit, I'm confused as all heck over the fruit stuff and the day creams,night creams, sweet creams. So, if I were to order the Fruit Acids, I want it plain, no VK?

JoElla recommended the AHA Cream to me for it's anti-aging benefits. So I'm figuring that it has the most benefit combined with the other products for these pesky signs of aging.

Soooo just so I get this strait, the Fruit Acids and AHA cream are the same product, right?

I tried the Additional Sweet today after my facial as I felt a bit dry after my clay mask, it was really nice. It absorbed very quickly and didnt leave me greasy. The eye cream is nice for under MU, not too heavy but provided enough moisture for a smooth MU application. Sank in in less than 1 min. Cant say it works any better than the OF I was using but perhaps my eye area could use the extra oils in the eye cream. Will let y'all know what I think after a few weeks of use.

Im going to use my FA under the VK2 for the first time tonight! If all goes well Ill be adding back in my Cellbone Vit C by the weeks end. Trying very hard over here to restrain myself over here from product overload.

Wow, the Sillouhette cream!

Iv been using Tonus B12 and Sillouhette in the range together and my stomach looks really really smooth.

Now I've noticed that my legs and bum are less "cellulity" than before. I sort of pushed my legs where there used to be quite a lot of cellulite and wiggled about and my skin definately looks smoother there too, there is notibly less. I've also got scarring from years ago on my bum and thats dissappearing!

I've been using that for 2 weeks now and im amazed at how quick it's worked. I want the essential mask now cos you lot seem so impressed! It's encouraging to find something that works.

oh ps, i use Oxygen Face cream only with a different cleanser, but will be converting once i get paid. OF has worked for me too!

Von, no the AHA Cream is different than the Fruit Acids, which is actually Vita Kombi 1 combined with the AHA. The AHA is just AHA. Since I use VK2, I'm getting the AHA and will layer it first, with the VK2 on top.

LOL, Blues. No acids...how about the occasional no acids?

My head hurts! If you dont mind could you post links to both products? I seem to be having trouble finding them on JoElla's site. Thanks.

Egad! Now I'm wondering whether I should just get the apricot because it has 2% oxygen since I'm using VK2...or should I go for the AHA and layer the VK2...or the Fruit Acids and layer or not because it has 1% oxygen...

Now my head is spinning!

A heads up. I was going to be driving today for four hours so before leaving I applied NIA sunscreen and I stung for 25 minutes. I don't think the niacin is compatible with the Oxygen. At least not for me. Is anyone else using NIA ss?

I just tested it, Blues, and decided to stick with my Sofina Nuance Up. No conflicts for me with that, just so you know.

I tried the Bioderma s/s with the KH products and my face did the same burning. I will continue with my Sofina, as I also don't have problems with that one.

I have just finished reading all the posts in this thread but am uncertain as to what age group KH seems to be effective with. Could someone please enlighten me? I am interested in ordering from one product line, shipping charges from multiple vendors could easily pay for more KH products. What products would be recommended for over 55 - with sagging, wrinkles and rosacea? Idea

Stovetop, I have only just begun these products, but I would suggest you email the Karin Herzog US site or JoElla and see what they suggest for you. I am 45 and a smoker with wrinkles and freckles. JoElla suggested the Vita A Kombi 2 and the AHA cream for my wrinkles/freckles. I am sure Blues, and the others will offer their help, as well! Very Happy

I got KH products a week ago, and applied VK2 to my face at that time. My skin turned sore red, and I got lots of peeling similar to retin-a in the beginning and more severe. I did not think that I applied too much, but apparently I did. I have been waiting for my skin to get normal again, and going to apply it in super low amounts, and will proceed slowly. I believe that it should work well with this approach.

I also applied Sillouhette on my hands a couple of times and it was fine, no problems.
