What Time Is It?

Recently I started using products from Mary Kay's TimeWise line.

I didn't want to do it, but I feel like at my age (39!) I really need to start using something more than the generic moisturizer from Wal-Mart. So I ordered some products from Leigh and have been using them for 3 weeks.

And believe it or not, I do notice a difference in the lines around my eyes. It is a slight difference but it is noticeable - at least to me anyway!
I have been using The TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser, the Day Solution with SPF25, the Night Solution and the Age-Fighting Moisturizer. And for good measure, I have been using the Microdermabrasion Set once or twice a week.

It looks like I actually have a skin care regime now. I feel so grown up.

I wanted to post a Before and After picture but failed to actually take the Before shot so I did the next best thing. I perused my photo files and now we have a Before photo. (Please ignore the mortarboard. Sarah wanted my picture in it and pretty much what Sarah wants, Sarah gets. I think it's the whining - that girl can whine. )

BEFORE Mary Kay TimeWise

AFTER Mary Kay TimeWise

Like I said, my lines are still there. And I know they always will be. But, I don't think they look as deep since I've been using the TimeWise line. And my skin has never felt softer.

If you guys want to try the TimeWise Miracle Set, please contact Leigh. She is offering 15% off the set which includes the 3-in1 Cleanser, the Daytime solution with SPF25, the Nighttime solution, the Age Fighting moisturizer AND foundation.

It's a good deal ya'll. And if you decide to use it. Please take a Before and After shot and post it so I can see how great you look!

But please, leave the mortarboard in the closet!

I're beautiful!

My sister used to sell Mary Kay and swore by this product.

I'm also 39...sigh. I've been using Neutrogena eye cream for a good six years or so and I swear that and a good sunscreen daily moisturizer regimen have helped me greatly.

I also lucked out and got to try a laser skin rejuvenation/microdermabrasion treatment recently and it took a lot of my brown, freckledly stuff off. I'm sure that's the technical name for it, too. ;)

You do look beautiful either way! But, I can tell a difference. But then again I am a die-hard Mary Kay user. I have been using for 13 years now. I love it!

I've been using Murad skin care for a while now and it's pretty good...not quite ready to move on to the anti-wrinkle creams but will def keep this in mind- you look adorable in those pics btw!!

Your skin has got a new glow! Awesome! I'm 33, and I've been thinking that I need a better skin regime....I was thinking about Clarins, but this looks great too!

You look beautiful, I have used mary kay since the age of 15. Gosh, more than half my life now-- you won't be disappointed. I sell it too, me and my girls all use it- even my boy uses the velocity cleanser.

Lines make you beautiful. Aging is a wonderful thing. It gives you wisdom and insight and connection to what really matters.

I so need a skincare plan. I'll have to look into this!

jennwa said...

Of course you look great. You look like me. Everyone says so.
I use a lot of Mary Kay make up and I like it a lot.

You, for sure, look beautiful! As for myself, the only thing that would help is the "yank and pull" method! So I think I'll just stay me!

Christina said...

Thanks for the plug, I have been wondering about these products for awhile.

Rebekah said...

Very beautiful. I love MK!! That stuff is awesome. Just dont use microderm just after youve been in the sun. Ouch.
Oh, and their mineral powder foundation Rocks!

You are lovely in both the before and after, but yes, i can see a difference! But you have the loveliest smile...your eyes really light up with it. I always think that that's how you can tell a genuine smile rather than a fake.

I'm glad you posted these!

You look great in both pictures, but I'm glad you found a product you like so much. You might look 18 in a few months if you keep on using it!
