Since a lot have been requesting for product reviews on the Mary Kay samples that I recently got, I'll be starting off with the product that really caught my attention. It is the TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Step 1: Refine and TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Step 2: Replenish.
From their website marykay.com.ph: Step Refine is an advanced exfoliator using the same professional grade exfoliating crystals used by dermatologists, to immediately energize skin and reveal more radiant, healthy-looking skin.
THOUGHTS: Basically, the STEP 1 is the facial wash which is actually an exfoliator with microbeads. After washing my face with it, I don't feel dry and itchy compared to other exfoliating wash I've tried before. I also like the fact that my face feels tighter after washing. I know some of you guys know that I have combination/oily skin, but after trying out this product, my face immediately became smoother and had a matte but kind of dewy finish to it.
PRICE: This retails for Php1,530 which for me is a bit expensive. But if you want to have flawless looking skin, irregardless of the price, you'll definitely buy this! I already placed my order on this so I'll be posting the actual look and size comparison of this product since I only got a sample sachet this time.
Step 2: Replenish separates the set from the competition. It’s a rich serum, containing vitamins, antioxidants and anti-irritants. This serum nourishes the soft, smooth skin revealed by Step 1: Refine.
STEP 2 is the face moisturizer and I have to tell you that this moisturizer is really good! Some of you may know that I haven't found the right moisturizer yet. But, the long search is over, I have finally found it!
THOUGHTS: Compared to other moisturizers I've tried (I'll name one, the Myra-E whitening facial moisturizer), this didn't gave me break outs. I tend to break out after a day of application and so far, after two days (I use this twice a day, by the way) of using it, I didn't get any. I like the fact that it doesn't have a smell. Also, just like the STEP 1, it leaves my face oil free for almost half of the day which is something I like.
PRICE: According to their site, this retails for Php1,530. Again, irregardless of the price, I suggest you invest on it since it will definitely work wonders for your skin.
OVERALL: I've already placed my order on both products. I am loving this brand so far because it is working wonders on my combination/oily skin. Compare to those of Clinique or Neutrogena, I think this product is just as good as these brands. If ever I ran out of these products, I will definitely order again and this will be my daily facial skin care routine!
Disclaimer: I wasn't paid by Mary Kay to do this product. I received free samples because I purchased from a friend and everything that I just said on this review is 101% true. I also did this review since readers have been requesting.
P.S. More products reviews on Mary Kay coming your way this week :)
