During my days in NYC as a staff beauty editor, rubbing elbows with celebrities (think High Tea with SJP to kick off the launch of her scent Lovely, a behind-the-scenes interview with Carmen Electra and a Q&A with Gwen Stefani about her Harajuku Lovers fragrance) was part of the job.
One of my most memorable meet and greets was during an event with Courteney Cox. She had become the face of the somewhat unknown brand Kinerase, a line dedicated to the plant-based antioxidant kinetin. After a brief introduction to the formula, each of us beauty editors had a short session with Courteney. She was sweet and soft spoken, but what really stuck out was that she had the most radiant skin. I had tried the moisturizer for the first time only days before, and I could see why Courteney was such a fan. It was gentle and hydrating, and I loved how it made my skin feel. Since then, Kinerase (Facebook.com/Kinerase; Twitter.com/KineraseBrand) has been a brand that rolls off my tongue whenever friends, readers or guests at The Beauty Girl Parties ask for recommendations.Thus, I’m so excited to offer 5 people the chance to win the brand’s latest launch — Kinerase Daily Defense SPF 30. This $135 formula is an all-in-one moisturizer, anti-ager and sunblock. It’s available in a lotion or cream, so I want you to tell me which one you want.
