KIKO Makeup Milano is an Italian brand that has fairly recently reached UK shores, and they offer skin and body care products as well as makeup. KIKO promotes itself as being deeply rooted in Milan fashion, art and design and it combines cutting edge technology and latest fashion trends to create high quality and innovative beauty products. A great example of this is the KIKO Skin Trainer which claims to be a youth generating serum that trains the skin "to increase its youth potential" - doesn't that sound just fantastic?
The description of the serum also says it will do the following; recharge the skin with energy and counteract the signs of aging, intelligently moisturize skin according to its needs, increase cellular oxygenation to show healthy complexion and even out the skin. And there's more - apparently results should be visible after only a few days of use, and who doesn't like a quick result?
Here are some of the scientifically proven results from the KIKO test groups:
- The skin is up to 42.8 % more supple (average value: 21.8%) after 4 weeks.
- The skin’s hydration increases by up to 76,6 % (average value: +31.6%) after 4 weeks.
- Wrinkle depth is reduced by up to 58.5 % (average value: -32.4%) after 4 weeks.
As with all serums you apply a couple of drops to clean skin before you add whatever moisturiser you use. The serum has a pipette to help you getting just the right amount and I use 2-3 drop to massage into my face and neck. The formula is thicker than you would usually find with a serum and it reminds me in both look and feel of vanilla sauce, but it's absorbed quickly into the skin leaving it feeling very soft and hydrated, but it doesn't leave any shiny patches. It may look like a yummy vanilla sauce, but unfortunately it doesn't smell very nice. I would even say that it smells a little bit industrial - with a rubbery or even plasticky scent, not at all what you would have expected from a skin care product.
So I've now started the mini trial, we'll see how it goes - and on September 20 I'll let you know the results, and what I thought about using this product!
