5 out of 5My new secret to a smoother complexion from Concord, CA Verified Purchaser
I had to try this after Lisa Eldridge recommended it so highly in her favorite skin care products video claiming that it helps to keep her skin clear. This little gem really is a multi benefit serum! It gently exfoliates my skin while keeping it hydrated. I'm so happy with it that I've already bought a backup.

5 out of 5A Dab Will Do Ya. from Brooklyn, NY Verified Purchaser
I heard Lisa Eldridge recommend this product for skin that has a difficult time exfoliating on its own and that has a tendency toward breakouts. Needless to say, this product delivers. It's rather expensive for the amount that you get, but seriously, a dab will do ya. I use half of what the pump provides and it covers my entire face and neck. I can make this product last for several months using this amount once at night. I highly recommend this product if you have a tendency toward breakouts or if your skin lags in exfoliating on its own.

5 out of 5Kinara Lactic Acid Hydrating Serum from Pickerington, OH
Let's start with the only thing I don't like about the product size of bottle. I wish they had different sizes to pick for purchase.
This product has helped reduce pore sizes as well as wrinkle lines. I highly recommended it for women in my age group -- 40 to 50. Love the product.

5 out of 5the very best exfoliator ML from Lakeside, CA Verified Purchaser
At first, I was very surprised of the size of the bottle, it's tiny, but as I soon found out is that you don't need a lot of it, few drops is enough for one application. I apply the serum only 3 to 4 times a week and only at night because I get oily during the day and don't need extra stuff on my face. It's very tingly at first and I would say a lil stinging as well, but it goes away pretty fast.

I really liked this serum. It feels nice on the skin and I wake up to clear soft skin. I just don't like that it contains so many parabens.

5 out of 5The hydrating serum to stay in my beauty routine WL from Manning, WA Verified Purchaser
The first impression is how small the bottle. But a small amount works a long way. I am hoping it will last a good few months before I need to repurchase. The smell is devine, fresh and wakes up the senses. Hydrates the skin and absorbs well. Looking into other Kinara products.

5 out of 5Great for keeping pores unblocked from Scottsdale, AZ Verified Purchaser
I use this every night after cleansing my face and have found that it extremely helpful in keeping my pores clear. I have normal to oily skin that is acne prone. It doesn't dry my face out and helps to keep acne at bay. I have used this product for 3 months and absolutely love this it! It is and will continue to be part of my nightly skin regimen. In the day time I use a spf 45 moisturizer by La Roche Possay. The combination for me is perfect!

I discovered this product in a magazine. I was impressed how many celebrities use it. I give it a try and it works for me. I never have had wrinkles before, but the little fine lines have disappeared. If you want to improve your skin, feel it fresh and healthy, buy this serum, you won't regret it.

5 out of 5Love Kinara!! by Mazzy69 from Longwood, FL Verified Purchaser
I didn't think I would like this product as much as I did because I've always been a fan of and used Glycolic Acid and while I know they're both in the same family, I rather thought of lactic acid as sort of training wheels for glycolic.. even had this idea that lactic acid was for sissies who couldn't tolerate the serious stuff (I know~ ridiculous!) Completely ridiculous because as I discovered (the hard way too I might add), lactic acid is quite potent itself- and very capable of producing some serious results... like the Kinara Red Carpet Facial Peel- also another new favoite of mine. I highly reccomend both of these products. They do not disappoint!

5 out of 5My face looks fresh again KW from Sussex, WI Verified Purchaser
After reading a snip it that this was a product Halle Berry used I thought how could I go wrong.
After reading all of the user reviews written about this product it convinced me this was the right product to try.
This is a great product, and I started to notice after even just a week of using that my face had a brighter tone to it, my skin felt better, and it even helped with the acne that I do get. I am glad I found this product and will never go without again!

5 out of 5I have the new skin I have been searching for! by Sherazona from Gilbert, AZ Verified Purchaser
I read reviews of this product and knew I was getting something great, but I didn't know just HOW great! My skin is renewed, I haven't had any breakouts and that alone is amazing. I've suffered from adult acne for almost 4 years and have tried everything, this is the first product to eliminate any breakouts and make my skin appear refreshed, bright and have that "youthful" glow again. I work in the cosmetic industry and it matters to me what face I put forth. I will never stop using this product.

5 out of 5"the best" from Portland, OR Verified Purchaser
I have been using this product for a few years now and I always go back to it. I'm not sure why this product isn't more well known. It does everything it says it will immediately. I get Clear skin, smooth texture, refined pores every time. This is better than many of the C products I have tried. The lactic acid just works well on my skin.

5 out of 5Awesome product AD from Alexandria, VA Verified Purchaser
This serum is amazing. I'm really picky when it comes to skincare products and expect the product to perform the way it's described. The Kinara Lactic Acid Hydrating Serum does just that. I have really oil skin and acne which I've suffered with all of my adult life. The only thing that works for it is prescribed Retin-A. This is really drying to my skin and can make it flaky really quickly if overused even slightly and initially while first starting it. I stopped using the Retin-A during the summer because you cannot be exposed to sun while using it or you get dark blotchy patches...which I started getting. This Kinara Serum is the only product I have found, after trying MANY acne products, that has significantly improved my skin and virtually eliminated my acne. It has refined my pores, improved the texture and tone and appearance, cleared my acne and all while moisturizing! I don't use any moisturizer but may need to durin the winter months. We'll see. I highly recommend this product!

5 out of 5the best product to smooth skin tone for dry or oily skin from Nicholasville, KY Verified Purchaser
Both my teenage son and I use this product, and we both love it! His acne has cleared in just two weeks, and my dry skin which is sensitive feels more supple and smooth. This product is great for smoothing skin tone in both oily and dry skin types. Now that I've found this gentle exfoliater, I no longer use glycolic acids. This lactic acid serum leaves the skin looking just as bright and exfoliated but without the abrasiveness of other products. I'm so glad I've found the Kinara line.

5 out of 5Great Exfoliating & Hydrating Serum from Baltimore, MD Verified Purchaser
This is a great serum to apply at night before you put on your favorite moisturizer. I definitely notice a difference in my skin if I stop using this product in my skin care regime. My skin does not feel as smooth or hydrated without this serum.
The serum is relatively clear with a slightly amber tint. It is a light gel that dries pretty quickly once it is applied. There is a very pleasant light aroma that quickly disappears. I am sensitive to scented products (they give me migraines) & this does not bother me a bit.
I love the Kinara serum pump bottle that distributes the perfect amount of product for application - hygienic & convenient. I believe the packaging also prevents oxidation. You can turn the pump distributor "off" for travel & place a cap on the "beak" (I still pop the bottle in a waterproof makeup bag to prevent mishaps - I have traveled with this serum for 5 years without any issues).
I've used many other high end serums without results. Some simply do little to nothing while others irritate my skin or cause breakouts. I hope Kinara never discontinues this great serum!

5 out of 5the perfect skin renewing serum LM from san anselmo, CA Verified Purchaser
This is my second bottle of Kinara Lactic Acid Serum. I love it. My dermatologist told me that lactic acid is both more gentle and hydrating than other AHA's. I was told that lactic acid literally helps draw moisture to the skin. It has light gel-like feel so it is easy to apply and leaves a subtle sheen on the skin. I use it every morning.

3 out of 5No effect, good or bad. SH from Houston , TX Verified Purchaser
I have been using this product for about a month and I canít say that I have seen any negative, or positive effects on my skin. It didnít cause my oily, acne prone skin to break out or dry out but it also hasnít had any clearing, poor tightening, tone correcting or hydrating effects like it claims. For such a hefty price tag I expected it to do at least one of those things. On top of that, the smell is quite unpleasantÖI like herbal smells, but this doesnít smell herbal, it just smells bad. Also, I find that I cannot wear it in the morning, only at night. I normally only wear serums at night, but this product says oilier skins should wear it in the morning, but when I do my makeup landslides down my face by 10 am. So, based the fact that it has some drawbacks and nothing to offset them I will not be repurchasing this product and I would not recommend it to anyone else.

4 out of 5A good serum from Indianapolis, IN Verified Purchaser
Considering that there really is NO such thing as a 'miracle cream'... I would say that this serum does a pretty good job of making a marked difference on the complexion of one's skin. It will probably not revolutionize your skin care routine, your life will not change... but of all the skin care products I've used, this is one of my personal 'tops'. The serum is not oily... but it moisturizes & gives you a bit of a 'glow'. I think it improves any scarring that you may have from previous blemishes. It helps minimize pores. All in all, a good product & worthy of a try if you are considering it....

I like this product it smoothed away dry flaky patches. I have tried other exfoiliating seurms and they dried my skin out. I did get a few litt le breakouts but I think that's because it's bring it to the surface. I use this with red carpet facial kit and my skin is looking alotbetter.

5 out of 5Weightless and smooth serum clears up the skin from Huntington Beach, CA Verified Purchaser
This serum is so light-weight I can barely tell I have it on.
I have been using it for 2 weeks and I can say that I definitely notice a positive change in my skin. It has a nice fresh scent too. A little bit goes a long way so although it is a small bottle, it seems that it will last a while.

5 out of 5This serum is worth the money from Vienna, VA Verified Purchaser
I'm very impressed with this. I have tried numerous serums and have never seen what all the fuss was about until now. However, I have noticed a significant decrease in breakouts - including those horrible cystic, hormonal ones I get at that time of the month - since I started using this. I also started using Lancome's Creme Radiance Clarifying Cleanser at the same time, which is an awesome make-up remover as well as cleanser. Since I'm using them both morning and night, I'm not sure if one or both is responsible for my skin's awesome turnaround, but I'd definitely spring for the Kinara again, just incase.
