Shipping and Handling: $6.96
Before starting Skinn Cosmetics, I worked for twenty years with the largest cosmetic houses in the world. I found myself constantly frustrated with the way they did business. Unfortunately, the big cosmetic companies never seem to care about making quality products that actually help the consumer. Their "formula" was always the same: make a cheap product, put it in a fancy jar with a nice box and charge as much as possible. After learning that I was never going to change how those big companies do business from within, I realized I needed to change the nature of the very industry in which they operate.
When I launched Skinn in 2002 the question most asked was "How are you going to do it Dimitri? How are you going to give us more products, better products, and keep them at a comparable price?" The answer was really quite simple. After working at the highest levels of the big cosmetics houses, I learned that the money they spend does not go into the product. In fact, it seems to go everywhere but the product: ad campaigns, department store counter space, Park Avenue offices, and, most of all, packaging. Believe it or not, most companies spend more money on the container and fancy boxes than on the product that's inside. I used to sit in meetings in those Park Avenue offices to talk about how to improve the company's products. Those meetings always seem to end the same: "Let's change the packaging." Upgrading the product was always deemed too costly as it would require re-educating the consumer about what constitutes a quality product. In essence the secret would be out that water does not have to be the first ingredient in every product.
Skinn offers its products only through televised home shopping, the internet and exclusive, privately owned spas throughout North America. This has allowed us to reach the maximum amount of people, while keeping overhead very low. We don't have expensive retail shops or New York office suites; you won't see costly magazine or prime time TV ads. What we do have are some of the finest cosmetics ever made. You'll see the difference!

Ordered this just for stem rejen
I noticed an improvement in the 'wrinkly look' of my lips with my firstbottle of stem rejen; so I will continue to purchase.I apply every night at bedtime.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cannot believe how effective!!!!!!!!!!!!
For years I have been trying to alleviate that feeling of dryness over my top lip and trying to find something that would take care of the wrinkles that were starting to form there.I found something by the name of L for 95 dollars but it was so shiny on the top lip area.I am a T girl at the shopping channel and at times those products have worked in this area.BUT NOW I HAVE FOUND THE MOTHER LODE!!!!!!!!!!I was first introduced to Dmitri's serums with the vitamin c--was impressed so ordered it and so happy.Well, I said to myself if that works so well, what about this lip therapy kit!!!!I have used it for 3 days now and already the dryness and the wrinkles have lessened considerably!!! Really!!! Cannot believe it!!!The lip mask is like a raspberry mousse-I just smooth a little bit over my lips and wait for a few minutes-the pepper ingredients make little sharp tingles-not unpleasant-then I wipe it off.I have always had dry lips and thought there was nothing I could do about it very much except lip balms-------well, after I used the mask, my lips felt hydrated, plumper but more than that, they felt spongy!!!!I kept pressing my lips together all night to experience the softness!!! A wow lip mask!!!!!Then I use the lip rejen serum above my lips-smells like soft peppermint. I press it into my little wrinklies and they kinda disappear and I do not have that feeling of dryness after a couple of hours.Then I use the lip gloss by itself or over my smudge sticks.The gloss is not tinted, scented, sticky or gloopy-makes a nice thin layer on the lips.The smudge sticks go on very lightly-like a sheer color but lasts and lasts.The flesh color is my favorite.I am a believer in the Skinn line! Everything in this kit is a true marvel!!!!Especially the lip rejen serum!Us Canadian girls can be very conservative at times and want to stick with and remain loyal to a certain cosmetic line-but it does us good to step outside the box and go for another line which does produce the very best for us at the time.I am looking forward to Dmitri's next visit!!
