Emily is the least pushy Mary Kay consultant I've ever met. That says tons! I have met more then a few and they all irk me. When Emily asked me to consider a review I wasn't sure what to actually review. I already love the Simply Cotton perfume, I once upon a time had a 101 makeup kit that James totally trashed when he was 3, and I haven't had the money to replace. So I asked Emily what she thought lol, I filled out a little profile online and told her about my skin care regimen, or rather the lack of one. I have really oily skin, it feels icky. I used to go for the best grease cutting stuff I could find lol, Palmolive dish soap it was! Seriously I was desperate I felt like I needed an oil change twice a day! I am sure Emily either laughed or cried for me lol. I know that old Miss Mary Kay rolled over in her grave!
Emily sent me a fabulous Trial size Time Wise Miracle kit for me to review. She asked me to take a before picture and use the products for a month.
Madilyne was my photographer for the before pictures, she's pretty good!
I hate pictures of myself so I must REALLY love y'all! My skin was broken out and this admittedly is right after I washed it with dish soap lol. Before had I put makeup on, right between my eyebrows would look scaley and icky, my nose would be red and cakey and just overall not very happy. I can say that my skin definitely changed after I had babies. I used to be the kind of girl who wouldn't go check the mail without putting full makeup on, now you are lucky to catch me in it.
The Timewise is easy and quick. One of the main reasons I didn't do the whole skin care regimen is because I don't take alot of time for myself I'm lazy like that. But really washing twice a day I could commit to. You use the cleanser first, then the microderm abrasion scrub and follow up with the replenishing stuff and moisturizer. And depending on whether it's am or pm you use the day solution or night solution.
I found that the day solution made me wanna reach for that dish soap again, so after talking with Emily I ended up skipping the day solution unless I was going out, as it has spf in it to help protect and that can promote oils to sit on top of the skin. I also use the Microderm abrasion scrub every other day, I have wonky skin and this keeps the scaliness at bay.
So after 30 days, I have a better appriciation for my skin, want to reach for the dishsoap alot less often and I actually feel kinda pretty again. Next on my list is investing in some Mary Kay Colors.
Now my skin feels a lot nicer, foundation covers nicely and no icky patches of scales, no oil slicks to be found. My blemishes even during my period are almost non-existent. I want to wear makeup again and feel definitely more pretty!
