Giveaway: Mary Kay Skincare System

About 10 years ago, before marriage and before kids, when I had money to buy the things I wanted – I used Mary Kay’s skin care systems. I used Velocity which is their youth skincare and I tried their TimeWise products which are supposed to keep elasticity and prevent wrinkling. Then came marriage and kids and a budget that only had enough room for the free skincare products I could get at CVS or the grocery store.

When I was given the opportunity to try out the Mary Kay – TimeWise collection, I jumped at it. I’m definitely in need of the help with wrinkles . . . they’re coming on strong now that I’ve hit 30. I was provided with the travel kit which was perfect. I can easily carry it with me wherever I go and for me it made it a lot more practical.

The set came with cleanser, moisturizer, daytime serum and nighttime serum. It comes in Normal to Dry and Combination to Oily. I chose the Combination to Oily.

TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser – this cleanser doesn’t just clean. It also exfoliates and freshens. It’s a timesaver for this busy mommy . . . and probably the only way I could fit in all three of those in my daily routine.

TimeWise Age Fighting Moisturizer – this moisturizer is specifically formulated to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The combination to oily formula that I used helps absorb oil and provide a matte foundation for your makeup as well.

TimeWise Daytime Solution SPF 25 – put on this product as a line of defense between your skin and the sun. Wearing this helps prevent continued sun damage, keeping your skin looking healthier and more vibrant for a
longer period of time.

TimeWise  Night Solution – a concentrated delivery system of nutrients and vitamins directly to your skin so that you look reenergized and healthy.

Overall I really liked the products and the way they worked with my skin. I’m not one to make outlandish claims, but I thought I could see a difference in some of my extra lines just days after starting this routine.

You can purchase these products in the travel size for $44. Or you can purchase the fullsize set (which should last you for several months) for $90.
