"As a beauty writer I am acutely aware that much pseudo-science is spouted by manufacturers in a bid to tempt the public to buy their latest wonder cream. And once, this was largely marketing guff.

All moisturisers are essentially an emulsion of oil and water. The way to works is simple: putting it on the skin traps moisture to the surface, and stops the uppermost layers from becoming dry. But can using one really stop the ageing process - or even make us look younger?

Today, the answer is yes. Anti-ageing products available on the High Street are increasingly high-tech, created using techniques borrowed from advanced medical research. And they actually work - as I discovered when I put one famous Royal’s favourite face cream to the test.

For a month, I used The Duchess of Cambridge’s moisturiser of choice - from Karin Herzog range - which you can pick up in most department stores at around £50 for a 50ml pot. And scientists analysing my skin told me there was irrefutable evidence that my wrinkles had been reduced by 27 per cent. So how is this possible?

Experts call this ‘the age of the cosmeceutical’. That’s a term coined to cover high-tech skincare that falls into the gap between cosmetics, which by law should make only a very temporary change to the skin, and pharmaceutical products, which can be provided only with a doctor’s prescription, and bring about lasting changes."

Karin Herzog Vit A Kombi->The power of BHA, retinol and vaseline. Of course it works, it's like great-grandmother of anti-aging stuff, so much more effective stuff available now, for less. I was quite dissapointed with that line.


Btw, I love this comment from that article:
"I just knew there would be the usual cries of "I've used Astral/Nivea/Vaseline/beef dripping all my life and now at the age of 416 I don't have a single wrinkle on my face"... and I wasn't disappointed! Where are all these supposedly wrinkle-free OAPs, because I've never seen one!"

There seems to be a few Vita-A-Kombi products, 1, 2 & 3, Fruit Acids with AHA and a face oil. Does anyone know specifically which product she likes? The description of the product on one of the selling websites says the product works by pressing oxygen into the skin when it is converted from liquid to gas. There are other brands using the "oxygen" technology or process. I think Bliss was the first to come out with a product but Kate Somerville has one and so does Suzanne Somers in her Suzanne Organics line sold on ShopNBC. So is there anything else in the Karen Herzog product that makes it extraordinary? Is anyone else using this brand and if so, can you recommend where to buy it from. And let us know what results you saw? Thanks

I would suggest reading the KH thread.

This might sound stupid, but how does the oxygen stay in the product and stay in the jar?

I thought oxygen had to be in some kind of pressurized container to keep it from evaporating?

I will look at the KH thread.

Interesting her creams contain parafin/mineral oil and the hydrogen peroxide provides the oxygen...

I've used KH off and on for several years. The eye cream is my favorite of all time. I also love VK2. I've tried many lines and KH is tops in my book.

I bought the whole set of KH products and used them for awhile. I never saw any difference in my skin.

I fell for the KH line too. Hook line and sinker. Hated it and it didnt do a thing for me. But goes to show how we are all different! Some love it.

fawnie,

If you don't mind me asking, how long did you use the product?

It is so true - how one thing is someone's ideal and someone else hates it. I will probably buy VK2 and the eyecream again at some point. I love to switch up such things and I've always been happy with KH products. I've probably bought both of them 3 times in the last whatever years.
One thing I will say is - you have to find the *right* product in the whole line - otherwise it certainly won't do a thing. I doubt the apricot oil or many other Herzog items would've done a darn for me - probably wouldn've hated them.

I loved the cleansing product also but I can buy cleansers cheaper so didn't reorder.
