To those who don't know what Mary Kay is, it is an international company that sells make-up and skin care products which are only available to their accredited beauty consultants. It is quite interesting because my mom tried this product before and raved about it. They do have some impressive line of anti-aging products, however, my mom failed to sustain it because the products are VERY expensive (for a reason!).
So, we went to try and test a couple of Mary Kay's bestsellers...
1. TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser
This product has three benefit in one which is to cleanse, exfoliate and refresh plus it has anti-aging benefits that will reveal a more younger-looking skin. This feels like a regular cleansing product but it leaves a more refresh and supple feel to the skin. It is hard to know the effect right away but I am happy not to breakout during application. (Price: PhP 1,1750.00)
2. TimeWise Microdermabrasion [Step 1:Refine]
HEAVEN SENT! You can immediately tell the difference and the effect of this product on your skin. It gives a radiance and a renewed feel after application. The exfoliants on this product has the same quality as that of the professional dermatologists. The proper application is required to achieve the best results. After cleansing, apply a quarter-sized amount of Step 1: Refine to wet face with fingertips. Using circular motions, gently massage face with fingertips for 1-2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Follow with Step 2: Replenish. (Price: PhP1,530.00)
3. TimeWise Microdermabrasion [Step 2:Replenish]
Since the exfoliation process can often leave your face dry and rough, the step two of Microdermabrasion sets Mary Kay apart from other whitening sets in the market. This serum is contains vitamins, antioxidants and anti-irritants that leaves your face smooth and soft. This is perfect for sensitive skin. Use your soft fingertips to apply it on the face. (Price: PhP1,530.00)
4. TimeWise Age-Fighting Moisturizer
It do what a usual moisturize does, it softens and hydrates your skin. It claims to give 10-hour skin moisture (but I highly doubt that, it might give moisture but will wore out eventually - maybe depending on the climate). However, I did felt a nice supple effect after using it and it does hold up long enough. (Price: PhP1,280.00)
5. Matte Wear Foundation/Luminous Wear Foundation
This works like magic on the skin. With two formulas to choose from - oily to combination (matte) and dry to combination (luminous), you just won't go wrong with this. I love how lightweight and clean the finish of this foundation is. The coverage is buildable but trust me, you won't be needed the extra coat. It absorbs oil all day which makes it last longer than other commercial foundation because it blends well with the skin. (Price: PhP750.00)
6. Satin Hands - Satin Smoothie Hand Scrub
My friend, Madge, had been raving about this product for daaaaays now. And I agree with her, the smoothness of my hands did change after using this. Above all, it smells so good - pretty much like peach! It cleanses and exfoliates the skin. (Price: PhP995.00)
7. Satin Hands - Hand Cream
The hands is one of the fastest drying part of our skin, so this moisturizing hand cream is perfect for that instant need. You can use it everyday and it comes in a small-sized bottle for easy-reach. It also smells like peach. (Price: PhP550.00)
|My dates for that Sunday. Nadine, getting facially busy; Me doing whatever that is during hand spa; Madge doing sometthing, hahahahaha and the Mary Kay beauty consultant. :)|
I learned a lot during the demo like the proper way to massage the products on your face, how to know your skin type and many more. It was very informative. I enjoyed it and looks like my skin did to!
|After the facial demo... Nadine, me and Madge... Pink! :)|
Overall, Mary Kay products are effective and safe yet expensive. But the money you will invest on skin care will be worth it if spend with this product. They have an outstanding costumer service, good marketing strategy and excellent products. Also, their products last for a long time (a year - max) since all you need is a pea-size amount of each in every use. So, if you decide to splurge on something, do it with Mary Kay.
|We also have some freebies! I got the skin care products! :)|
I will also blog about the sample products I got after I finished it. That's all for now!
