I think most of us moms of young children are guilty of this…we put ourselves last. I’m the last to buy myself clothes, get a hair cut (well, none of us have had one in a while), or take care of my skin. It’s one thing to put on makeup (which is once a week if I’m lucky), but I need to take care of my skin.
When I was in college, I was introduced to the then new Mary Kay TimeWise® Miracle Set®. At first, I was a little perplexed as I was used to foaming face washes, but I quickly discovered how much I like the fact that it didn’t, and yet my skin still felt clean, and more importantly smooth. Since then, they have branched out to having two formulas, normal-to-oily and normal-to-dry.
I was a great customer and kept up with my face wash and lotion until I moved to Georgia, and then my MK lady went MIA. Then I met Bernice about a year ago, and she recently started selling Mary Kay and offered to do a facial for me.
And, I jumped at the chance. A facial tuned to my skin at my house? That’s how Mary Kay consultants usually work. Which is super nice because Baby E was like 1.5 months old and I wasn’t going anywhere.
She came over and showed me that there are two different TimeWise formulas. We discussed my skin type and decided to do the normal-to-oil. I like to say I have a reverse T-zone. The chin and nose are my problem areas.
I started using the entire TimeWise® Miracle Set® immediately; washing, applying the day or night lotion and then the moisturizer. At first, I felt like my face was breaking out a little more around my mouth, but I kept using it. And, sure enough it balanced out. And now, my cheeks are smoother and my skin isn’t nearly as dry as it was.
The officials about the set (retails for $90):
The TimeWise® Miracle Set® provides incredible age-fighting results to help you maintain younger-looking skin. The set offers 11 age-defying benefits in one skin care regimen: cleanse, exfoliate, freshen, energize, hydrate, smooth, firm, soften, protect, rebuild and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. And it even works with sensitive skin. We tested our TimeWise® Miracle Set® on individuals with extremely sensitive skin, people with rosacea.** The results showed that people with skin sensitivities can experience the same great age-fighting benefits. The Miracle Set® includes:
• TimeWise® 3-In-1 Cleanser, 4.5 oz. net wt.
• TimeWise® Age-Fighting Moisturizer, 3 fl. oz.
• TimeWise® Day Solution Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35*, 1 fl. oz.
• TimeWise® Night Solution, 1 fl. oz.
I really like how my skin feels and that I’m taking care of just a little bit of myself. And now, you can have $50 to Mary Kay to take care of yourself, too.
