Mary Kay goodies

I have heard of Mary Kay products.
I had never tried any of them, well at least until now.


I was gifted some items and samples that work well when traveling,
over the last weeks I have finally been using them.




First, the Mary Kay Warm Amber body lotion and fragrance.
To be honest when I sprayed it on at first I was not fully convinced -
but, I waited for it to dry down and it is wonderful. Soft. Tender. Subtle.
Certainly the lotion is the best complement.


Second, its Mary Kay Time Wise 3 in 1 cleanser.
I use it every morning in the shower. I adore the smell, 
if you ask me, it smells like a new Barbie doll - which is exactly how 
I feel after washing my face with it.
I have rosacea and have had no reaction to this product, 
it works very well for me.


Third, the Mary Kay Botanical Effects Cleanser, I had several sample packets.
The product is a white light cream that goes on smoothly and removes make up very well, for the eye area I had to apply product a second time.
It does sting the eyes and leaves the skin feeling 
super clean and not in a harsh way.
The Mary Kay Botanical Effects Hydratant is probably one of my favorites.
It's light as a feather, it's absorbed really quickly and make up can be applied right after you put it on.

In general, I really liked the products.

Have you tried any Mary Kay products ?

I haven't. I'm sure they're fine as products, but I steer away from the company because it often exploits struggling women. There is a big article on the company and its sales practices in the current issue of Harper's magazine (not Harper's Bazaar, but just Harper's). If you're curious, you can probably find it online.

I love Mary Kay! When we were looking for a makeup artist to make us all pretty for my wedding we had a trail with a Mary Kay consultant and she got us hooked on the products, they are so good!
I use the body wash set, the skincare set and the makeup. Pretty much everything I put on my face is Mary Kay - even my favourite lippy!

My aunt was a Mary Kay lady back in the 80s! My mom bought me the full line of skin care back then so that I'd learn how to look after my skin. A couple of years later, she bought me the make-up so that I would have good quality products. I learned a lot from the MK parties, about applying make-up and what colours to use.
