MARY KAY timewise Microdermabrasion Plus Set Review
Microdermabrasion Refine & Pore Minimizer
Mary Kay is one of the brands I really love because it has an inspirational story behind it and of course offers great quality products. Mary Kay Inc. is an American cosmetic company founded in 1963 by Mary Kay Ash. She got frustrated with the level gender inequality in the work place that was going on at the time and decided to start her own company. Now that’s inspiration right there!
First let’s talk packaging, the Mary Kay timewise microdermabrasion plus set comes in a cute “signature pink” box and contains two products. A scrub (microdermabrasion refine) and a pore minimizer. The box is so cute it just screams “wrap me up and give me away as a gift” and the product size is travel friendly.
Mary Kay Microdermabrasion Refine (70g / 2.5oz)Basically this is the scrub of the set. In case you are scratching your head, microdermabrasion is a fancy way of saying exfoliation and removal of dead skin cells. The product is fragrance free and has the texture of a lotion with fine grains. It’s doesn’t feel that harsh on the skin. My skin always feels super smooth after using it.
Mary Kay Pore Minimizer (29ml / 1 fl.oz)The second product on this set is as the name says and needs no explanation. It is a lotion that helps to reduce the size of your pores after using the scrub. The bottle comes with a pump that makes it easy to use. The effects of pore minimizer for me weren’t visible from the get go, it took about two weeks to see them but they are definitely there. Fun fact, when you pump the lotion out it appears white in colour but a few seconds on the skin it changes to pink! I tried to find out why but no luck.
I know it’s somewhat expected in a product review to write something I don’t like about the product, but...personally I can’t fault this one! Both products are fragrance and oil free and did not irritate my sensitive skin. Both need only be applied in pea size amounts and last very long. It’s been almost 8 weeks plus and I have been using the same set (twice a day). Did I mention the skin feels really really really smooth after!?Because it does! :)
