Break the Boredom of Holiday Gift Shopping With the Karuna Karma Kit

Tis’ the Season for Pampering Presents that Put a Fresh Face on the Holidays


Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/04/2010 -- Very holiday season shoppers eagerly queue up to buy gifts that are sure to please. This year, Karuna Skin, LLC, a privately held luxury skin care company in Los Angeles, recently launched an exceptional gift called the Karma Kit, a premium collection of its four best-selling Karuna masks including the hydrating mask, anti-oxidant mask, exfoliating mask and anti-aging mask.

Karuna, which is the first skincare company to develop a high-quality, one-step, no-mess, no-rinse, do-it-yourself facial that is individually wrapped, developed the Karma Kit as a natural extension to its already successful line of pampering beauty masks. The prestigious beauty-boosting package, which retails for $28.00 for four masks, offers everything needed to fight the effects of premature aging, dry or dull skin, environmental pollution, stress, and even an occasional late night out.

“The traditional choices for gift items given to employees, friends and family members are often limited and boring. To take a break from the demands of life and totally relax, the Karma Kit is an ideal gift for anyone looking for something unique and innovative,” said Linda Wang, founder of Karuna.

Karuna draws on the wisdom of both the East and West to evolve the luxury skin care category in a new and modern way. The products blend the value of Karuna (compassion) with unique, sought after beauty ingredients from Asia. The Karma Kit masks include:

• Anti-Aging – Through vitality and transformation, the Karuna anti-aging mask uses wild yam to help improve skin circulation by increasing collagen renewal and elderberry extracts to improve elasticity for more youthful skin. The mask uses the latest advances in skin care and science to help slow down the process of aging while helping to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

• Anti-Oxidant – Protects and balances skin through a combination of Chinese green tea and African chrysanthellis to form a free-radical scavenging shield to protect the skin from environmental elements. Usually derived from natural sources, anti-oxidants are one of the gentlest and most nourishing skin care ingredients available on the market.

• Exfoliating – Revives and renews skin with a customized blend of lemon's natural citric acid and pineapple extract to help exfoliate, hydrate and improve the skin’s elasticity. The fruit extracts are a natural way to remove dead cells. By removing the skin’s surface and making way for younger cells, the skin looks fresh, radiant and feels younger. Pores are also cleansed and opened, allowing skin care products such as serums, creams and moisturizers to penetrate deeper into the skins surface to achieve maximum results.

• Hydrating – Restores the skin using natto--a Japanese soybean--which helps to retain skin's natural moisture levels as it exfoliates to boost dehydrated and dull skin. Consumers will feel softer, smoother skin.

Each Karuna masks also has the added benefit of the revolutionary Karuna Beauty Boost to heal, detox and renew. The proprietary blend of ingredients fuses nature and science to benefit all skin types. Chinese licorice, aloe vera, chamomile, vitamin B and other plant extracts help to deliver high levels of hydration as they work to soothe, calm and fight free radicals. A special combination of peptides assists in skin cell renewal and work to fight premature aging while helping to repair previous skin damage.

Each Karuna mask is a luxurious custom shaped all-natural fiber cloth designed to retain 50 percent more moisture than other synthetic masks, helping pores fully dilate and drink in the paraben-free beneficial ingredients. Made from bio-degradable wood pulp, the cloth also allows skin to absorb the benefits of the ingredients long after the mask is removed.

“These time honored rituals coupled with the latest innovative delivery systems make the Karma Kit an affordable luxury that is great to give as a gift, split up and share, use as stocking stuffers or keep for yourself. Travelers and gym-goers really like the masks because of their natural portability and high-quality ingredients,” said Wang.

The Karuna’s Karma Kit retails for $28 and is available Apothia at Fred Segal in Los Angeles, Bliss Spas, Victoria’s Secret Direct and exclusive salons and boutiques throughout the world. All products can also be ordered securely at from
