Let’s welcome a brand new name on the beauty Olympus – Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System. It’s designed to provide salon-quality results in the comfort of your own home, with noticeable results after as little as two minutes of use. Sounds promising, doesn’t it? I had the opportunity to be among the first to try this new tool, and would love to share my first impressions with you.
First of all, what is Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System?
The Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System, a safe, painless and non-invasive way to quickly and easily improve the appearance of aging skin. The Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System utilizes isometric compression combined with ultra-low frequency sonic vibrations to gently stimulate and tone skin for a more youthful looking appearance. – Conture
The device is designed for people struggling with loss of firmness, or those like me who are predisposed to it. My aesthetician recommended going for facial massages at least once a week to prevent the inevitable sagging, but let’s be honest here, very few of us have the time and money to do so. While Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System is not exactly cheap, in the end it will pay for itself many times over by replacing the massaging hands of a salon specialist.
How do I use the device?
1 // Start with clean skin by removing all traces of makeup and skincare from your face by using a mild soap or a gentle cleanser.
2 // Apply Kinetic Treatment Serum, followed by Kinetic AM Ignition Lotion or Kinetic PM Recovery Crème over the treatment zones.
3 // Gently dab the power button on the touchscreen and select the mode you want to use. FACE setting fits most complexions.
4 // Move the device slowly upward, and make sure that your skin has constant contact with the vacuum tip. It’s best to treat each zone for 2-3 minutes minimum to see optimal results.
5 // Use daily AM and PM to reveal your best skin in years!
I’ve had my device for a week, but the positive changes were noticeable already after the very first treatment. I’ve been using Conture in the AM after washing my face, and in the PM while cooking dinner. Odd timing to do a beauty treatment, isn’t it? But for me it worked really well, because I could stir with one hand and use the other one to glide the device across my skin. So really, this isn’t one of those products that want you to stop everything you’re doing and dedicate time to it; this is truly an “on-the-go” beauty tool perfectly adapted for a modern woman’s busy life.
It’s been a while since I last visited a salon for a facial massage, but Conture feels exactly like those gentle pinching and dragging motions you’d expect to pay hundreds of dollars per visit for. I was also impressed that Kinetic Treatment Serum, Kinetic AM Ignition Lotion, and Kinetic PM Recovery Crème weren’t just random sidekicks, but really powerful enhancers of the whole process. For the sake of the experiment I tried using Conture on dry skin without applying those products, and I definitely had a worse experience with less apparent lifting results. Long story short: picking up some Conture skincare along with your new device is a good idea.
What makes this serum and cremes so good?
Kinetic Treatment Serum – A complete anti-wrinkle serum formulated with the revolutionary peptide SNAP-8, which has been clinically proven to reduce crow’s feet alone by up to 63%.
Kinetic AM Ignition Lotion – A daily use moisturizing, anti-age lotion designed for all skin types. This lightweight, yet intensive moisturizer hydrates skin while helping the skin retain essential moisture.
Kinetic PM Recovery Crème – An intensive night creme that helps the skin recover while you sleep. Featuring a unique blend of encapsulated Retinol, Longevicell, and Adaptonyl that together dramatically improve skin barrier function and the skins own ability to remain healthy and at peak performance.
In other words, they each can be used without the device as part of your regular beauty routine, but they will truly shine when paired with Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System. Alternatively, you can use your own serums and creams, but keep in mind that clinical trial results were observed with the brand’s own products, so there’s no guarantee your own skincare will work as well.
The device can be charged via most standard USB ports or a wall outlet. For safety reasons Conture will not turn on while charging, which makes sense since it’s very easy to accidentally push the button. A glowing green button on the touchscreen will indicate that the device is charging.
There are two treatment cups in the kit: STANDARD cup and FOCUS cup, designed to provide additional options for the coverage area. STANDARD cup is best suited for the neckline and decollete, while FOCUS cup shines when it’s used for crow’s feet and wrinkles. To remove a cup, hold the device in one hand and gently pull the treatment cup off. Conture recommends replacing cups roughly every 90 days, depending on how often you use them, so it’s pretty much like replacing your sonic brush heads every so often.
I feel like this review got too wordy, so I’ll wrap up with the bottom line that I thoroughly enjoyed using Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System and will continue with my regular daily treatments. I think I will update this post with my final thoughts after 2-3 months to let you know how it fared in the long run, but so far I’m impressed!
WHERE TO BUY: $249 USD. Available at Conture.
