I don't know about you but there's something about dermatologist backed skincare lines that have always been very appealing to me. Renowned dermatologist Karyn Grossman whose patients include some of the most famous faces in the world and has also worked with some of the biggest names in the skincare industry has created the KARYNG line of products to address a wide variety of skin concerns. The line works on a unique concept of “90% natural and 10% science" to harness the best of nature with the latest innovations in skincare.
All products in the KARYNG range are formulated with Pro-Verte Technology, a proprietary complex of powerful natural anti-aging and anti-inflammatory ingredients designed to combat the visible and harmful effects of inflammation while working to repair and restructure skin. They are GMO and gluten free, vegan, cruelty-free and do not contain any controversial ingredients, like known endocrine disruptors such as parabens, propylene or butylene glycols and phthalates. They do not include dimethicone, petroleum, pesticides, BHAs, PEGs, TEA, DEA, or synthetic fragrances. All KARYNG packaging is BPA free and the paper used for the cartons is harvested from sustainable forests in order to help preserve the environment.
KARYNG Complete Broad Spectrum SPF 50

KARYNG Revitalizing Eye Cream
KARYNG Revitalizing Eye Cream is an energizing cream made with anti-oxidant Soybean Extract, rich Shea Butter and Karyng’s Pro-Verte Complex. It works to targets all eye concerns by helping to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles.
$70 /.5oz / 15ml
This product is very light with an almost watery feel. It applies smoothly and sinks in almost immediately. I had some concerns that it wouldn't be moisturizing enough since I normally tend to use more emollient eye products. It's feels fairly hydrating and my dark circles actually have been looking better lately but I can't be sure if that's due to better sleep, a new massage regimen or this eye cream. I do plan to keep using this though as well as keep up my other good habits.
KARYNG products are packaged in elegant looking airless pumps which happen to my favorite type of packaging for beauty since it's both hygienic and preserves the efficacy of the product and it's ingredients. It also scores pints for sleekness and a smaller footprint as well.
I haven't experienced any issues or irritation while using either of these products. I'm smitten with the KARYNG Complete Broad Spectrum SPF 50. I think this may the first sun protection product I've ever enjoyed wearing simply because it doesn't feel like sunscreen. There is absolutely no white cast and the product feels almost imperceptible on top of my skin. I love that it's an all in one timesaver that combines moisturizer and sunscreen as well as how it delivers noticeable skincare benefits. I like the Karyng Revitalizing Eye Cream well enough but it's not a game changer for me like the sunscreen which I would definitely repurchase.
The full KARYNG collection which also includes a Replenishing Cleanser, Retinol Renewing Serum, and Restructuring Night Cream is available through the brand's website.
What do you think of these products? Do you use a separate moisturizer and sunscreen?
