INNARAH Skin Care is the future of beauty. It is the first skin care of its kind. INNARAH works with the skin’s own immune system. Their company uses a fermentation process to combine unique botanical oils and minerals. The products are made without any of the following: parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. INNARAH was developed by a chemist named Manzoor H. Jaffrey who was one of the first to discover the anti-aging benefits of glycolic acid. He has developed products for skin care companies such as Bliss, Immunocologie and has developed over 500 cosmetic formulations on the market. His revolutionary products for INNARAH are VenoMaxTM and JO2.
This fermentation process allows the products to work in with the body’s own immune system. Ingredients are easily absorbed into the skin, repairing it from the inside out. Immediately skin is healthier, rejuvenated, smoothed, and has moisture replenished. INNARAH consists of a 10 product protocol. Currently they have more products in development. I was able to try 6 of the products and can give you an idea of the system.
Treatment Solution is the first step after cleansing. It is for any skin type and it is a revolutionary product because it hydrates and exfoliates skin at the same time. The formula stimulates cell renewal and helps to maximize penetration of other products. It can be used as a leave-on or wash-off product to deliver a healthy radiant glow to the skin. I found this to be an excellent hydrator and exfoliant for the skin. It is perfect that it can hydrate and exfoliate at the same time! Personally, I leave it on so that I get more benefits from it. I apply then use the Line Smoothing Treatment Serum over it. I feel that the Treatment Solution is especially adept at adding helping to keep skin looking radiant. My skin feels so much more soft and smooth after having used this for a few weeks.
100ml/3.4 fl.oz. ($150)
Line Smoothing Treatment Sèrum
Oxygenated Moisture Sèrum
Line Smoothing Treatment Serum is the next step in the routine. Also for all types of skin, it is one of the INNARAH foundation products. This serum helps to do a number of things: it repairs and protects skin from the environment, firms and tones the skin, brightens the skin, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles and combats chronological aging. This is a tall order to expect of a serum, but the ingredient list is impressive. Can be used day or night. I recommend using it both. What I like about this serum is that it does a number of things at once. It brightens skin and helps to fight fine lines and wrinkles, making it a jack-of-all-trades. I have been fighting off a tiny line in the furrow of my brow for a while now (this is the one that is supposed to be there but I have been fighting it off for the life of me) and it has really helped to keep it under control. This lovely serum also brightens quite well, leaving skin looking so much clearer and radiant than prior to use.

VenoDefenseTM Eye Treatment Sèrum
Hydrating Eye Treatment Sèrum
A silky eye serum for all skin types, the VenoDefenseTM Eye Treatment Sèrum is perfect for improving the natural function of the skin in the delicate eye region. It contains a proprietary complex of anti-inflammatory ingredients to aid in strengthening the tissue, reduce puffiness, get rid of dark circles, soften lines and wrinkles and make the skin around the eye look better overall. VenoDefenseTM is a proprietary blend of anti-inflammatory ingredients that mimic the effects of snake venom and smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles instantly. Can be used day or night. This is a very nice and light serum for the eyes that sinks in immediately. I prefer a serum over a cream because my eyes are sensitive and tear up easily. I don’t really have an issue with dark circles but I am fighting a battle with some fine lines and puffiness. The serum does help to aid in alleviating the small fine lines and makes them less noticeable. Also, I notice that the puffiness has gone away too. This is definitely one of the better eye serums I have used. I noticed results within one week of use.
15ml/0.5 fl.oz. ($150.00)
VenoDefenseTM Treatment Crème
Hydrating Treatment Crème
The VenoDefenseTM Treatment Crème is a luxurious cream formulated with the proprietary complex of anti-inflammatory ingredients that inhibit aging in the skin. The rich formula replenishes moisture, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed and skin is instantly radiant. It also shields skin from UV damage, reduces redness and delays the aging of skin cells. Use day or night on face, neck and décolletage. I found this cream to be so luxurious. Probably the most luxurious cream I have ever used. Only a tiny amount is needed for the whole face and neck. It sinks right in but afterwards my face feels completely moisturized and taken care of. I found that using this helps to reduce redness and brightens quite quickly. I had one area that was blotchy on my face and it is gone. This took only one week. My photo-aging is also much better too. I have been using this with the Line Smoothing Treatment Serum and my skin looks smoother and more radiant. Definitely a winner. I think these are the most interesting treatments I have ever used so far.

Hyper-Oxygenated Crème Clarifying Moisturizer
When I am in the mood to get some clarification to my skin, I use this awesome cream. The JO2Compound is perfect for those who have some congestion, are in need of some oxygen or have hyperpigmentation. Although this is listed for all skins, I think this is really great for normal, combination and oily skins, which can use this day and night. This is an amazing product. It really has a nice way of cleaning out the skin and leaving it clear and bright. Used in conjunction with the Treatment Solution, skin will be soft, smooth and free of any congestion. Even drier skins need a product like this a few times a week. I like this cream almost as much as I like the VenoDefenseTM Treatment Crème. This is a must when skin is feeling “yucky”. Sometimes you just need a cream that does everything, well this is one of those creams. This is great when used after the Defense Masque!
50ml/1.7 fl oz ($250.00)
Defense Masque is a special detoxifying and oxygenating mask that helps to brighten the skin, clear congestion, hydrate and deep clean. This mask can be used on all skin types. For normal to dry skins, leave on up to 10 minutes and for oil skins, leave on up to 30 minutes for best results. Can be used daily or weekly as needed. This mask is one of the better masks I have used. It really does help to leave skin feeling less congested, brighter, more hydrated and feeling clean. I use this then use the Treatment Solution and the Line Smoothing Treatment Serum and either the VenoDefenseTM Treatment Crème or the JO2Compound, depending on how my skin is feeling that day.
100ml/3.4 fl oz ($125.00)
After using the INNARAH products for several weeks now, I have noticed the following in my skin: reduced blotchiness, more clarity and brightness, a reduction in pigmentation around my face, reduced puffiness in the eye region, reduction in fine lines around the eyes and a small difference in fine lines around the face. My expectations were met with these products. They are enjoyable and easy to use. There is a recommended product protocol that maximizes results. I will say that these products are not the least expensive I have ever tried, but we all know that beauty and looking our best is definitely worth it! There are two travel kits available, these are $245.00 and $350.00 respectively. They have good sizes of various products to use and try. If you are on the fence about trying INNARAH, this would be a good way to try out a few of the products and see how they perform.
