Skin Care 101 with Mary Kay - The best microdermabrasion product EVER.

Honestly, I don't pay as much attention to skin care as I should. I get way too caught up in pretty cosmetics, and forget to take care of my skin which is definitely NOT the way to go. There's only so much you can cover up with makeup before you need to address the real issue, which is making sure you have a good canvas to start with.

Recently my lovely friend Megan invited me to participate in a Mary Kay skin care class. Basically, they send you a booklet with samples of the Mary Kay skin care products you're going to try out.

Then you join a conference call with a few Mary Kay consultants and other people taking the class and the consultants walk you through using the samples and answer any questions you might have about the products. It was a very interesting experience for me, as I've never done a skin care class by phone! The consultant leading the class gave us a bit of background on Mary Kay and let us know that they have the Good Housekeeping award - which means that their products actually do what they claim to do! Then it was time to break out the sample book and get cracking on some skin care! I decided to try the products on one side of my face, in order to see the difference after use. My skin is dry/combination, but these products are good for sensitive skin as well.

First we tried the Time Wise 3-in-1 Cleanser. This is a creamy, slightly exfoliating cleanser which is applied with a little water and then washed off. It was very gentle and didn't leave my skin feeling tight which is a problem I've had previously with other cleansers. 

We then used the TimeWise Microdermabrasion: Refine. I've tried a few microdermabrasion products before, but this is the only one that actually made a visible difference to my skin immediately. I could see a clear difference between the right and left sides of my face, such as smoother texture, smaller pores and more even tone. This is literally the BEST microdermabrasion product I've tried, it's definitely something I will be purchasing!

The TimeWise Microdermabrasion: Replenish is applied next, to soothe and protect the skin.

The next step was the TimeWise Night Solution (as it was evening), which really softened and moisturised my skin. It has these little beads in it which supposedly burst and deliver the enzymes (or something idk lol) directly to your skin.

The last product was the TimeWise Firming Eye Cream. I don't really have sagging skin or wrinkles around my eyes just yet, but I did notice a bit of a firming up in the eye area. It was probably only noticable to me though! My problem is more undereye dark circles, so I may have to try their Targeted-Action Eye Revitalizer, which is more for dark circles.

 I must admit, I was not expecting the products to work as well as they did. I've tried other high end skin care before, but a lot of them make a bunch of claims which you don't actually get to see happen until weeks or months down the road. This was pretty much an instant result, which I was really happy with.

Along with the skin care samples, Megan also sends some makeup samples to try, which was great because I could get a feel for the formulas and the different shades.

The consultants are all really pleasant and well informed and were able to give me detailed information on each of the products, which was a great experience. I definitely recommend trying out the skin care class if you've never tried Mary Kay before, it gives you an opportunity to see how the products work for you risk-free.
