Kypris, created by the intriguing Chase Polan, is a high performing skincare line that seriously elevates the skincare routine into a near-esoteric ritual. ("Offer your Self honest compliments as you anoint your skin," for example, is included in the directions on my bottle of Healing Bouquet.)
Her trio of facial oils, aptly named Beauty Elixers, are full of softening, glow producing ingredients like sea buckthorn, black raspberry seed, rosehip and prickly pear extracts. They all contain a shelf-stable concentrate of vitamin C to support elasticity and firmness, plus free radical-quenching CoQ10. There's Prismatic Array for sensitive skin, 1000 Roses for hormonally troubled, polluted or mature skin, and then there's the Healing Bouquet for fussy, congested complexions.
The serums are in a category of their own. If you want a product that actually works, you'll be happy with any (or all) of these. The Antioxidant Dew, hailed as their "hero product," is a molecularly lightweight moisturizer that depuffs, soothes and protects. Sheri Stroh (the best clean make up artist ever) relies on it often when prepping her model's faces.
The Moonlight Cataylst is a game-changer for any Retin-A devotee. Utilizing fermented pumpkin enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells, fade acne scars, and refine texture, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from it.
The Clearing Serum supports the innate healing abilities of your skin, and I cannot go for more than a week without it. It keeps my combination skin in check, and acne at bay. Plus immune boosting zinc to decrease inflammation, tea tree oil, balancing clay, amongst a laundry list of active, natural ingredients.
A few drops of your chosen Beauty Elixer and one of the above serums creates a micro emulsion; a turbocharged, bespoke treatment that will address wherever you fall on the spectrum of skincare needs.
