Several of my girlfriends recently commented on my “newlywed glow” and how fresh and radiant I look in my pictures. I must admit the truth once and for all about my glow. It’s half martial bliss and half Mary Kay.
My first encounter with Mary Kay products was as a little girl. I attended a “Mary Kay party” with my mom and sampled different types of makeup. Fast forward 20 years later – I’ve recently discovered the brand again, but this time for skin care.
Disclaimer: I was not paid or asked to post for Mary Kay. I’m a brand enthusiast on my own!
I’ve always used low-cost generic skin care products because I never saw the need to spend a high dollar amount for my skin. However, as I slowly creep toward the big 3-0, I’ve noticed the signs of aging. My friend Kelly has incredible skin and I noticed she wears very little face powder and makeup but still a smooth and even look. She is a Mary Kay consultant and has been using the skin care products for years.
I decided to give it a shot and invested in the TimeWise Repair® Volu-Firm® Set to maintain the fountain of youth and I’m never going back to the generic skin care products. It’s a four step skin regiment and I wish I had taken before and after pictures to show the results. My skin tone has completely evened out and I no longer have red patchy blemishes. And it sounds strange, but my makeup goes on easier and I wear less face powder and concealer. Some days I only leave the house with bronzer on my face. My skin has a healthy moisture to it and my husband even commented that I have a “fresh new look to my face.” What a doll.
The whole set is $205.00, which may seem like a scary price. But do you know what is scarier? Getting old…
The set includes five products and I recommend adding the TimeWise Repair® Volu-Fill® Deep Wrinkle Filler. It attacks the wrinkle zones and it’s the low-cost option ($40) compared to Botox.
The full TimeWise Repair® Volu-Firm® Set includes:
- Foaming Cleanser
- Lifting Serum (my favorite!)
- Daycream Sunscreen SPF 30
- Night Treatment with Retinol
- Eye Renewal Cream
All products combined revitalize your skin and it’s been worth the monetary investment. My only regret is I wished I used Mary Kay before my wedding. Oops! So to all the brides-to-be, spend the extra money on your skin – skip the party favors.
