A few weeks ago, this bundle of goodies arrived at the doorstep.
Of course, it didn’t fall from the sky. Florinda has kindly asked a group of mothers to try this range out and as I looked at my face in the mirror, I thought, “Why not?”
You see, I wasn’t that concerned about looking after my skin in my younger days. I was thinking since I had combination-to-oily skin type, I didn’t really need to apply moisturiser. On top of that, I was in the sun a lot since I enjoyed the outdoors. However, the need to apply sunblock didn’t really occur to me as I do love the ‘tanned’ look.
I guess I reap what I sow. My skin is all right, not fantastic of course. It’s a bit dull and has big pores. But what really makes me sad is the area around my eyes. I have already incurred crow’s feet in my late 20s and now because of a lack of sleep, the dark circles got worse. This is no laughing matter. I still remember when I was working (that was a few years back), colleagues would ask me if I had enough sleep because I looked perpetually tired. The eyes must have done it again. So, yes, I am ultra-concerned about this particular area.
This Mary Kay bundle includes Day and Night Treatment, Intensive Serum, Correcting Eye Cream and True Dimension Lipstick. As with all skincare products, consistency is key and for the purpose of this review and to inculcate a good habit, I decided that I should be disciplined and follow a religious skincare regime.
I actually wanted to shout out to the world that this set of products work by the second week. It is actually quite miraculous, I think. I’ll let the pictures below show you the results. These are unfiltered and I have not edited them.
Before the use of the products, my lines around the eyes are rather deep. This is especially so when I smile or laugh. You can also see big pores on my cheeks and the skin is a bit dull and lacks firmness, you think?
By the first week of usage, the lines are minimised and the eye areas look more lifted. I also observe that the skin is firmer and more supple. The pictures speak volume. I am stoked. I believe I will be using this range and their other products from now on. It’s more economical than the ones I’m currently using and can produce more miracles and positive results! ;p
Oh yes, another thing that I appreciate is their product design. You only need to squeeze out the amount that you need for the day and night treatment and this helps to preserve the remaining cream (no contamination!) and reduce wastage. Love the design of the packaging too. Looks classic and elegant!
For reference’s sake, this is how you should apply the cream so that your skin can be lifted and restore youthful skin!
