Tiffany Blue. Coca-Cola Red. Hermès orange. A few brands are closely associated with one color and in the cosmetics world, Mary Kay has cornered the market on pink. This iconic brand has been around since 1963, when its consultants sold the products at house parties and the most successful ones earned a pink Cadillac. Here’s a closer look at the brand, Mary Kay’s top selling products and whether Mary Kay is right for you.

What are the Best Skin Care Products of 2020?

What Is Mary Kay?

Mary Kay was founded in 1963 by Mary Kay Ash with an initial investment of $5,000. She launched the company in a small Dallas store with just nine products– five skin care items and four makeup products. What set her strategy apart is that she also launched with nine independent beauty consultants to help spread the Mary Kay gospel.

Her brand grew in popularity via word of mouth recommendations, and according to the company, in just one year Mary Kay grew to having 857 independent beauty consultants. In just three years, the company passed the $1 million sales mark.

Mary Kay is one of the pioneers of direct sales cosmetics, or what we now call peer to peer sales, which is also the sales model for Rodan + Fields and Beautycounter. Kay encouraged her sales consultants to introduce Mary Kay products at home parties and implemented sales incentives. At that time, peer to peer sales appealed to women who need flexible work hours and could work largely from home.

Mary Kay Ash wrote about her unique business strategy and life lessons in many books, including Mary Kay: The Success Story of America’s Most Dynamic Businesswoman (1981), Mary Kay on People Management (1984) and Mary Kay: You Can Have It All (1995). There’s also a Mary Kay Museum located in the lobby of the Mary Kay headquarters in Addison, Texas.

Today Mary Kay has an estimated three million independent beauty consultants in more than 35 markets worldwide, and annual wholesales sales are estimated at $3.25 billion. The company hosts Mary Kay seminars and conferences around the world for its sales consultants, and the Mary Kay Intouch website is a resource and educational tool for their beauty consultants.

What is the Story With the Pink Mary Kay Cadillacs?

Perhaps you’ve seen a unique pink hued Cadillac with a Mary Kay logo on the road. According to the company, in the 1960s Mary Kay Ash asked a Lincoln dealership to create a car painted in a custom shade of pink to help promote her business. Lincoln said no, but Cadillac said yes, matching her car to a Mary Kay blush compact. It was a brilliant marketing idea that was ahead of its time. In 1969, Mary Kay Ash rewarded her top five sales consultants with a brand new pink Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Today the cars are a reward for Mary Kay sales consultants who reach $100,000 in sales.

What Does Mary Kay Sell?

Mary Kay has expanded exponentially since it launched with nine products, and now includes a wide range of skin care, makeup and perfume. (And for people that want to know if Mary Kay is a cruelty free brand, the company says that it is). Here’s a closer look at some Mary Kay products.

Do Mary Kay Products Work?

When deciding if a product is right for you, it can be helpful to read customer reviews but keep in mind that everyone’s skin can react differently to the same product. A little bit of trial and error is always needed when trying new products.

Customer reviews of Mary Kay products on Amazon tend to get high customer reviews, with most products garnering four stars.

The Mary Kay Timewise 3 in 1 Cleanser Normal/Dry Skin has 460 reviews, and a 4.5 star rating; 82% of customers gave it five stars. Customer comments range from “This is one of the only times I’ve really felt compelled to leave a review on Amazon. I tried this cleanser almost ten years ago, and have since experimented with a myriad of other brands and even organic oils, only to finally reach the conclusion that nothing compares to Mary Kay’s Timewise..” and “I’ve been using this cleanser for many, many years and at 73 years of age, my skin seems soft and free of a lot of wrinkles that I bet I would have were I not using this Mary Kay product. I must say I love this cleanser and defoliator.” Detractors said that the formula dried out their skin or wished that it created suds when used.

The Mary Kay Timewise Miracle Set – for Normal/Dry skin gets an average 4.5 star rating on Amazon from 70 customers. Fans say, “I have tried so many different brands of creams and serums, wasted hundreds of dollars. Using this for just a few days and already have seen a drastic difference!!! Never using anything else again!!!!!” while users who didn’t like the products say that “Saw no results do not recommend.”

Customer reviews on the Mary Kay website for the TimeWise Moisture Renewing Gel Mask include comments such as “I bought this mask when I lived in Florida and I was unimpressed. Then I moved to Colorado and WOW what a life saver! I put it on every night and my face stays nice and moisturized every day. It doesn’t feel like a typical mask, it goes on lightly and soaks into your skin very well.”

What Are Some Alternatives to Mary Kay?

Mary Kay may not be for everyone. Younger customers may view the brand as being a little old fashioned, such as Avon, and associate it with something their grandmother might use. And not everyone likes to buy beauty products from a consultant at a house party, as they can feel pressured to buy. But if you’re looking for a well rounded skincare line, there are a few other brands to consider.

Formulyst is sold directly to the consumer, and its philosophy is long-term and effective skincare. The brand wants to help its users achieve their best looking skin, rather than covering it up with makeup.
The comprehensive line of products targets everything from wrinkles to dark spots and dry skin.

Formulyst Retexturing and Perfecting Serum ($39) is powered by gentle but effective alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which dissolves dead skin cells, leaving behind fresher, smoother looking skin. If you have anti-aging concerns, reach for a product with the gold standard ingredient for tackling fine lines — retinol, a vitamin A derivative. This is the star ingredient in Formulyst’s Anti-Aging Night Cream. What makes this formula different is that it contains a high dose of retinol but it’s also packed with ultra-soothing and hydrating safflower seed oil and jojoba to lock moisture in and soothe the skin.

If you like the simplicity of a skincare kit, consider Advanced Dermatology. This no nonsense brand offers a pared down approach to skincare. The packaging is simple and streamlined, and the products bring skincare back to the basics. The kit contains just six essential items including a daily cleanser; serum; anti-wrinkle firming treatment; night cream; day cream and an eye cream. In other words, everything you need to achieve your best possible looking skin.

Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer Review

The Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer has been a long time favorite from the brand as a light coverage base with a little bit of extra protection from harmful UV rays. With an SPF factor of 30, this product is considered to be an excellent option for everyday wear in order to prevent premature aging from environmental aggressors, UVA and UVB rays. Unfortunately though, this product is currently not available through the Mary Kay website and has been rumored to be discontinued. But if you like the sound of this product and would like to try an alternative from Mary Kay, you may want to try some of the other sun care products available from the brand. This includes the TimeWise Age Minimize 3D Day Cream SPF 30, the Mary Kay CC Cream with SPF 15 or the Mary Kay Sun Care Sunscreen with SPF 50. Depending on your needs, as well as how much protection you’d like in a daily sun care product you may find that one of these is a better fit than the others.

Mary Kay Timewise Microdermabrasion Set Review

If you’re looking to maximize your exfoliating routine, you may want to look into a full set or routine to round out your routine and turn up the potency. Products like the Mary Kay Timewise Microdermabrasion Set use multiple products in order to amp up the polishing, exfoliating and refining benefits of microdermabrasion. The products included in this set are the Microdermabrasion Scrub and the Pore Minimizing Serum, which work together to purify the skin while also making it appearance smoother, tighter and more even. This specific set has been formulated to combat stubborn texture making it a great option for those of you who struggle mainly with enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, clogged pores or other similar skin concerns. In order to get the most out of this product, the brand recommends starting off with the Microdermabrasion Refine Scrub followed by the Pore Minimizing Serum 2-3 times a week in order to see the maximum results.

Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel Review

Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel contains botanical extracts reported to tone, firm, and reduce the appearance of puffiness around the sensitive eye area. One botanical extract is Camellia Sinensis (green tea) extract, which is well known for its calming properties and potent antioxidant effects. Cucumber extract is another ingredient that is known to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. A final key ingredient in the Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel is Rosa Canina (dog rose) fruit extract, a conditioner that improves the appearance of skin and helps it look softer and smoother.

Despite these beneficial botanical extracts, Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel contains some ingredients that may actually be detrimental to the sensitive skin around the eyes. For instance, this eye gel contains witch hazel extract, an astringent that works by constricting and drying the skin. While witch hazel may help to reduce swelling around the eyes, it also may cause dryness. Another potentially negative ingredient in the Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel is comfrey extract. Comfrey extract contains a high concentration of allantoin, which is why this extract is thought to accelerate healing and soothe inflamed or irritated skin. However, comfrey extract also contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids that have the potential to aggravate the skin. Lastly, Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel contains Euphrasia Officinalis (eyebright) extract, which contains tannins that could aggravate the skin. Due to the potential to aggravate the delicate skin around the eye area with these three ingredients, the negatives may outweigh the positives with the Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel.

Mary Kay Botanical Effects Mask Review

One of the most beloved original products from the Mary Kay line has been the Mary Kay Botanical Effects Mask. This unique mask was created to exfoliate the skin without stripping, and was one of the first options to offer multiple formulations for different skin types. The original Mary Kay Botanical Effects mask came in a range of different formulations for those with dry skin, oily skin as well as sensitive skin. But while different formulations were available, the core actives remained the same. This mask offers fruit enzymes as the central exfoliating agent which helps to gently remove dead skin cells and create a youthful, luminous glow. Unfortunately, this product has been disconnected, although you can still find it through a few retailers like Amazon and Ebay. If you’d still like to try an exfoliating product from the Mary Kay Botanical Effects range, you may want to try out the Mary Kay Botanical Effects Invigorating Scrub. While this product acts as a physical exfoliant rather than a chemical exfoliant, this newest addition to the Botanical Effects line still contains the primary antioxidant blend that was created with the original Botanical Effects Mask. This blend contains dragonfruit, which offers a range of antioxidants to help promote healing in the skin as well as scavenge the skin for any sources of free radicals that can lead to skin damage and premature aging.

Mary Kay Intense Moisturizing Cream Review

If you’re looking for a moisturizing cream that offers a significant dose of hydration and nourishment for those with dry skin, you may want to look into the Mary Kay Intense Moisturizing Cream. The idea behind this cream was to specifically focus on the skin’s moisture balance. There are a number of factors, including temperature, humidity, age, hormones and more that can disrupt this delicate balance. In order to restore balance to the skin, it is important that you’re moisturizing correctly and properly protecting your skin. The Mary Kay Intense Moisturizing Cream was designed help with these skin disruptions by creating a protective shield on the skin upon application. This shield helps to minimize moisture evaporation and keeps the skin hydration for up to 10 hours, which prevents many of those aforementioned factors from further disrupting the skin. Additionally, like many of the other products that Mary Kay offers, the Intense Moisturizing Cream is both fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, so you can use easily without worrying about sensitivity or irritation.

Mary Kay Charcoal Mask Review

These days it seems like detox masks are absolutely everywhere. So how to products like the Mary Kay Charcoal Mask differentiate themselves? Looking at the key ingredients behind this face masks, there are several important distinctions to consider. This mask uses a triple-action approach in order to properly cleanse the skin, reduce shine and while also introducing several botanical extracts that work to help clear the skin of clogged pores and acne breakouts. Mary Kay describes their key ingredient, activated charcoal as a magnet that is capable of drawing out and binding double its weight in pore-clogging impurities. But this mask doesn’t stop there. Unlike most charcoal masks on the market, this product also contains multiple botanical extracts that tackle hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Oftentimes, even after acne has cleared, the acne scars and dark marks that are left behind can actually be even more difficult to get rid of, so it’s helpful to use products that tackle both aspects of achieving clearer skin.

Mary Kay Skinvigorate

How Effective is Mary Kay Skinvigorate? If you’ve been looking for an easier way to remove makeup or to find a microdermabrasion alternative, then the Mary Kay Skinvigorate skin care system may be a possible solution. This treatment option from the Mary Kay skin care company is a brush tool designed to gently remove dirt and makeup from the skin’s surface. However, though this solution may seem interesting at first, it is important that you assess this product carefully and speak with a dermatologist before using the Mary Kay Skinvigorate brush tool. One of the reasons for this lies in the fact that the brush is designed to scrub your skin, which is a great idea on the surface (pun intended). However, those with sensitive skin or individuals dealing with persistent acne breakouts may do more harm than good when using this brush. After all, scrubbing your skin, even with a gentle brush, causes microscopic skin damage, which makes the Mary Kay Skinvigorate a skin care tool that should be used with great caution.

How the Mary Kay Skinvigorate Works

The premise behind the Mary Kay Skinvigorate brush is very simple; by using a specialized brush with small bristles, you can remove more dirt and makeup and dirt from the skin’s surface than you could by using your fingers alone. This is because the surface area of your fingers is relatively smooth and is too large to scrape away dirt and makeup situated within pores and small creases in the skin.

Mary Kay Night Solution

Antioxidants are one buzzwords in the skincare industry that everyone wants but very few actually know what they’re used for. Because of this, we’re looking specifically at this category of ingredients, as well as a product that focuses exclusively on getting you your daily dose. The Mary Kay Night Solution offers a surprisingly large array of antioxidants to help with a variety of skincare concerns, while also protecting your skin from further damage. We’ll share a bit about the product itself, the formula behind it, as well as some information on the antioxidant components, so you can decide for yourself whether its time to invest in an antioxidant serum. So without further adieu, let’s get started!

What are the Best Skin Care Products of 2020?

Who Is The Mary Kay Night Solution Designed For?

The Mary Kay Night Solution is for anyone who wants to try a little bit of everything without fully committing to more serious skincare products like prescription retinoids or heavy duty vitamin C’s. While these products can lead to more dramatic results in a shorter amount of time, more and more research is coming out these days to support the idea that a lower dosage of these ingredients can be just as effective over a long period of time. For this reason, this product could be an excellent introductory antioxidant and active rich serum for those who are looking to incorporate some preventative measures into their skincare routine.

Mary Kay TimeWise Night Solution

The Mary Kay Night Solution is most commonly found as a part of the TimeWise Miracle Set, which feature a four step routine that can tackle every aspect of your skincare routine, including cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating, protecting and treating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in particular. The Mary Kay Night Solution fills the role of a treatment product in your routine, and the unique gel-like texture adds hydration without adding additional heaviness. Unlike other treatments however, this night serum combines several different active ingredients and antioxidants, instead of just one or two. The formula contains retinol palmitate, a vitamin C derivative, and 10 other botanical extracts that serve mainly as antioxidants. While the percentage of these ingredients is rather small in comparison to more specific treatment products, this serum could make a great all-in-one as well as introductory treatment product for those who are concerned with aging and skin damage.

Formula Focus

Unlike typical antioxidant serums on the market, the Mary Kay TimeWise Solution has a gel-like texture with microencapsulated antioxidants which help to extend the shelf life of these actives and maintain maximum potency. But while the actives deliver the majority of the benefits in this formula, it’s important to take note of the main ingredients that make up the base of this product.

The base of the Mary Kay TimeWise Night solution consists of a blend of water, butylene glycol, glycerin, 1-methylhydantoin-2-imide, palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tripeptide-7. The first three ingredients serve as solvents, but butylene glycol and glycerin can also double as moisturizers to help condition the skin. 1-methylhydantoin-2-imide also serves as an emollient to further boost the moisturizing properties of the formula. But the real star of the show in the base of this formula are the two peptides.

Peptides are often the unsung heroes of anti-aging skincare because unlike retinols or acids, you won’t see dramatic results right away, especially if you’re anti-aging products are currently serving as preventative measures. Peptides serve as much gentler methods for warding off skin damage, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and helping to fade deeper creases. But while you may not see the results, when used continuously, these ingredients make an excellent preventative measure for those who are looking to stop wrinkles in their tracks before they have a chance to become more visible.

The rest of the active ingredients in this formula serve mainly as an antioxidants. Unlike AHA’s and BHA’s, antioxidants are one of those ingredients that you really can’t overdo. These compounds help to defend your skin against external environmental stressors that can age the skin, while also working within the skin to improve its appearance over time. Depending on your climate, lifestyle and location, a whole range of environmental stressors can impact the condition of your skin. Antioxidants help to ward off and protect against free radical damage, which lead to sagging, fine lines and uneven skin tone. Additionally, specific antioxidants can offer even more benefit when used regularly. Such is the case with vitamin C. Vitamin C helps to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone while simultaneously helping to brighten any dullness. Additionally, if applied as part of your morning routine, vitamin C can boost the efficacy of any SPF that you apply overtop.

How To Use Night Solution

Like the name would suggest, this formula is designed to be used during your PM skincare routine. Because it contains stronger actives like retinol palmitate and vitamin C, it’s best to use this formula once a day instead of twice. This product can be used as a treatment product for most skincare routines and should be followed up by a moisturizer to seal in hydration.

Review Recap

Currently, the Mary Kay TimeWise Night Solution has 37 reviews and an overall rating of 4.9 out of 5. Since antioxidants themselves have quite a wide range of applications, most reviewers found that this treatment product helped to improve the overall appearance of their skin, thus treating a few different skin concerns. Some reviewers noticed a decrease in adult acne, increased firmness, less noticeable fine lines and wrinkles, as well as overall brightness. But we’d love to hear from you!

    I haven’t tried any of the products for 30 days yet to say whether or not anything works. However, I tried the TimeWise 4-1 cleanser here is where it got a little tricky for me; my skin changes throughout the seasons to oily, combination to dry. I noticed my skin was a bit oily, so I tried the cleanser for combination to oily skin holy crap! The cleanser dried my face out so bad I developed red dry patches all over my face and neck. I freaked out. I didn’t know what was causing the red patchy rash because I typically do not have any sensitivity to products, so I stopped using MK for a few days, and it was MK once I stopped using it my skin went back to normal. I wanted to give MK another try, so I started using the 4-1 cleanser for combination to dry skin. I’ve been using it for over two weeks now and no problems. For me, it was just trying to find the right cleanser for my skin type. WARNING for anyone that doesn’t have super oily skin DO NOT use the combination to oily skin Timewise 4-1 cleanser that crap will dry your face out like a prune!

    Hey Nikie! I happen to be a consultant from MK! I love looking at what people like YOU have to say and concerns.
    So I know this was posted a few months ago but I’d really love to help find out what’s going on. Shoot me an email if you are interested? [email protected]
    Look forward to helping you find out what’s going on! I suffer from horrible acne due to food allergies and caffeine allergies and I am trying to stop drinking caffeine so I understand the sadness of breaking out!

    I’m hoping you got this figured out! I had the same problem! The new 3D skincare is so advanced & purifying the company prewarns you might have breakouts or skin irritations due to the product & it might bring out any future breakouts which would have happened naturally. The cool thing is the new MK skincare nips it in the butt so future breakout are minimal! I love how my skin is so much more healthy looking & brightening!! Please let me know if I can help you! It’s the BEST brand!

    This may be due to the fact that there are different formulas for normal to dry or normal to oily and you may be using the wrong one for your skin type. Also, she should be able to refund 100% or replace so you would not waste your money.

    I work in tv so the face I present to the world is important. Live the demo. Fmskin felt great 2 days last after buying 176 dollar set of time wise my whole face is covered in a red rash. I told the consultant I had sensitive skin and she said it would fine. Is it normal to break out like this?

  • Marissa Young Original review: Aug 06, 2018. Reply

    I would be curious to know if you got the same formula each time? There is a normal/dry formula and a combo/oil formula. If you use the wrong one for your skin type it could either be over or under-hydrating causing these different results you’ve experienced. Also did you use a different skincare regime in between the TimeWise sets/consultant changes?

    A few years back I was a customer of Mary Kay products and used their Soothing Eye Mask. I used to love that product, but now I use the Made from Earth Chamomile Eye Therapy for under my eyes. I LOVE this product. I used to tell people that it was a life saver because you could be running on no sleep at all and the product would completely remove all puffiness and no one would ever suspect that you weren’t well-rested. It makes me feel more awake.

    Been using MK timewise cleanser and moisturizer since college as I was impressed by the demonstration did of the consultant 3 blocks away from our house. I did purchased new one after I finished the first set. And in my second luck, I instantly got pimples whenever I’m using it (i got them from a different consultant and tried reaching out as to why I am having a different result from the previous one and I never got a proper reply. She wasted my money) now that I am here in abu dhabi, I did buy again (from a new consultant) and I noticed that my face got worse. There are blackheads breakout. Can somebody explains why? I feel so bad about my face.

    I am absolutely thrilled with the Mary Kay products which I was introduced to them about one month ago. I am using the Time Wise products and my 13 year old daughter is using the botanical skin care products. I do not wear make up and never will but my daughter enjoys the samples that the consultant provides. My husband’s hands get very dry as he is a mechanic and they get covered with grease which dries them out and I had been buying a drug store lotion for him which worked okay and then he ran out and so I noticed that he was using my sample lotions from the consultant as well!! So I will be purchasing the hand lotion for him as he states that it works better than the drug store brand.

    TimeWise Repair® Volu-Fill® Deep Wrinkle Filler is a relatively new product – certainly wasn’t around 20 years ago. I do like and use Mary Kay products but the wrinkle filler is one of the few I don’t care for. It’s almost like spackle because it doesn’t rub in but rather sits on the skin.

    Hello everyone, yes my name is Fernando, and I am guy who is extremely proud with his results. I used to have dry skin with a fatty cyst on my left cheek. The cyst is completely gone and my skin has improved dramactically. The dryness was caused due to anithestamines and cold climate. My professional beauty consultant did a proper assessment on my skin and did an awesome recommendation product line. Most of all, I personally follow a healthy diet, and drink plenty of water. I feel better about myself. My self esteem is better. Thank you MK.

    Mary Kay is such a crappy crappy product. All of it is junk for your face, none of it is healthy to put on. Don’t waste your time and money on this crappy stuff. Your skin will feel tight and horrible. The makeup looks like something for a clown to wear at the circus. I hate the parties they do, none of them know what they’re talking about. Plus they always push there producrs on you to buy. Or they will try to keep bothering you to get a job with them. If I don’t like the product, why would I work for you? Just never ever try this Mary Kay, I promise you your face will be great without all that shit on you. Try a high end makeup brand, it might be pricey, but at least you know it’s a better product for your face. Save your face ladies please.

    If it’s sold at Ulta, it’s not professional. Dermalogica used to be sold only to professionals who had to undergo special training. They sold a few years back to a large cosmetics company and the formulations changed to meet the needs and requirements of over the counter goods. Professional products are only at Dermatologist offices and Med Spas.

    Corrine. Actually MK DOES test on animals. I wrote to the company and they confirmed this. The do not test in the US, but in order to sell in China- they are required by law to test on animals. So the true companies that value life more than their pocketbook do not sell in China. Mary Kay is more concerned about money.

    A little sadden with all the changes over the past few years. I have been using MK for over 20 years and looked good, younger even. My issue is the change in the skin care and foundation. I been using the skin care from the original formula 3 to the Time wise repair now that I am older. I now have large pores and my skin that was once smooth is turning bumpy since I been using the Timewise Repair. The foundation which I need the lightest colour ever is now too dark and I need to find another foundation Ivory 101 was what I used. I need a lighter shade which when MK had the lavender concealer was perfect, but now no more. So sadly I find my self using less MK and looking for something else.

    My name is Tinu. I started using Mary Kay 3years ago. I used to have very dry skin and I was using Miracle Set Normal to Dry, within 1year of using it, I’ve to change to Combination / Oily because my T- Zone( my forehead & nose side) has changed to Oily. I ‘m now Independent Sales Director in UK. The Company is doing great with their Skincare ranges, enriches women by creating opportunities and flexibility. I’ll say things can go wrong when order of application of products is not right, when you’re using the wrong products for instance if you’re dry skin and you’re using products that is met for people that are Combination / Oily. If you need any concern with any Mary Kay products, feel free to contact me (UK)

    I have to disagree. The Mary Kay products definitely promote change. I’ve been using Mary Kay for over 35 years and have fabulous skin. I recently switched to the Time Wise Repair system and have seen a remarkable difference in fine lines and wrinkles. I don’t know when you “researched” Mary Kay but they have an extensive team of dematologists and scientists that are constantly studying and improving upon their products. AND they do not test on animals AND the products are all made in the USA. Also, the company stands by their products 100%. When used consistently and properly the results are amazing! And having a personal skin care consultant (at no additional cost) is unprecedented in the industry.

    For those claiming that Mary Kay doesn’t have any results, I researched and there are actually quite a few products that have the Good Housekeeping Seal of approval. Which, if you don’t know is really hard to get. It basically means that it’s proven to do exactly what it says.

  • Lyn Original review: Jun 20, 2016. Reply

    I was a Mary Kay consultant 23 years ago and loved the product. My experience with the company was so positive that it was an influencing factor in my decision to become a licensed aesthetician. Now, I have returned to college to continue my education in Biology and Anthropology because there is a lot of misinformation about skin care that is shared even among professional aestheticians. My studio spa that I own only uses phytotherapy so as one who researches ingredients and their scientific effectiveness, I would say even “professional” lines are questionable. So why am I a Mary Kay Advanced Color Consultant? Because they are the only company that offers a real value with professional results. I have been to their company factory in Dallas, TX and they are impressive when it comes to quality control for their products. Some may say that only a professional can determine the best skin care regimen for a client. That’s only true some of the time. I’ve had to correct many a botched prescription for skin care by dermatologists. It all boils down to the knowledge and care of the practitioner.

  • Amy Original review: Mar 19, 2016. Reply

    As a skin care professional, I do not recomend this line at all. I used it for years and when I went to school to become a licensed professional esthetician I learned to study ingredients and the effects on the skin. Mary Kay will not reach below the stratum corneum layer of the skin. It is and occlusive product which will help prevent trans epidermal water loss, but it will not create change. Only a professional line will bring change and they can only purchased with a licensed skin professional. The ingredients are mostly functional or a combination of function and performance. Anything below the first preservative is less than 1% of the product but they can still claim it is there. Lines like PCA, Osmosis, and Image are great. There are many more out there with more to offer and they do not cost much more if any more than any cosmetic skin care line like Mary Kay. The proof is in the pudding. Research each ingredient and write it down one at a time. Mary Kat will take pages to research but it is your skin we are talking about. Vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, and hyaluronic acid are amazing for the skin. Chemical sunscreen is a chemical and your skin is a body organ absorbing the chemicals.

    Mary,
    Yes the dark spot remover works, it is amazing. I am a Mary Kay consultant and used it for about 3 months. The age spots on my hands were almost gone so I quit. Now I have started again since more (or maybe the same ones) came back. Some of the spots didn’t which leads me to believe I quit too soon on the “bad boys”.
    I looked on product central and according to the literature the shade of foundation you would want would be an Ivory 5 in the Timewise liquid foundations and and ivory 1 or 2 in the mineral powder.
    I have been on the TW repair for a little over a year and love the results. I had more of a problem with uneven skin tone and the change is awesome. As for the pores have you tried the microdermabrasion. I have only been in MK for 18 months so I’m still fairly new so someone else out there might have more incite. I hope this helped.
    Happy New Year,
    Michelle

    I quit using Mary Kay about 5 yrs ago and now my skin has gone from oily to combination/normal and sometimes dry from harsh products. I am also in menopause and have begun to notice large pores and brown spots. Also, the colors I used to use were ivory 200 mixed with ivory 202 as my unique color. Now all the colors and formulas have changed. I’m familiar with everything else. Could you wonderful consultants make suggestions for me. Mine is moving and wasn’t on point with my skin. So I’m re-inlisting with an order today mainly to purchase a year’s worth of my own products. Does the new dark spot remover work? Are the lifting cream and retinol night cream the real deal? Not watered down?
    Any help is extremely important and a matter of weeks. I may be able to trade one product with my outgoing director. Thanks ladies!!

    With any skin care line, you must be consistent with your application of the product in evaluating its true results. I find that most women I speak to use a variety of cleansing and moisturizing products that reportly clash and cause sensitivity and facial breakouts. Makeup, polution and other environmental factors combine usually contribute to pores being clogged, wrinkes and uneven skin tones. The consultant can help the consumer with selecting the right product suitable to their needs. This is important and the consultant is committed to personalizing skin care services to their customers. Try before you buy and receive an education on whats best for you! That’s the MK difference.

    Perhaps you are using the wrong formula? I would get with your consultant and tell her your concerns. She would be happy to assist you. With Mary Kay if you are not completely satisfied you can exchange or she can refund your money. I’ve never had anyone want their money back, I’ve exchanged products; and they have since been happy. If she doesn’t (but she should) make sure you are happy, then you can call the company. Best of luck!

    I am so happy to read all of these reviews as the majority are very positive! I too thought Mary Kay was “just another Avon” but once I started using the products I fell in love with the results and even became a consultant. If you tried it and didn’t like it … I am happy you did check it out. If you tried it and loved it like me… even better because every time you make a purchase, you aren’t only supporting a small business, you are also helping fund Cancer Research and you are keeping shelters open for Domestic Violence survivors. These are the reasons I am in love with the company! I just found out that you can turn in 10 of the plastic bottle caps or product containers and Mary Kay will have a tree planted…. more and more to love. Another huge thing is the boxes that Mary Kay sends your order in are amazing; you can rinse them away right in your driveway and they will not pollute- 100% no landfill….AMAZING. Way to go Mary Kay!

    My mother started using Mary Kay when I was little and I used to put the “pink cream” on the cracks of my finger tips that I would get in the winter and it worked like a charm. I then started using MK when I was 19. I just turned 50 and still use it to this day. I cant say enough about the products. They are the best ! I did start my own MK business because I wanted to share these products with others and the training has been awesome. So, if you have ever wanted to try these products, I encourage you to do so.

    So i’m a newbie to Mary K products and I will be honest, I thought, “Ehhh, just another avon like sales situation.” Of course I was wrong….I have been dealing with hormonal breakouts, which is horrid and never in my life had the problem before. I deal with acne scares, and breakouts etc. and i have been using the product for four days now and already i have seen a major difference. my skin is more smooth and supple, my skin color is almost completely evened out, pimples are almost ALL gone and now i feel confidant to walk out my door without makeup. I also stopped using and liquid foundations however i did get Mary K’s mineral foundation and i’d have to say it poses as a “healthy” medium to full coverage and now i don’t have to worry about waking up with a new pimple if incase i do fall asleep with my makeup on. I have just been doing the timewise regimen daily and four days later i’m already seeing amazing results!

    Hannah, Most likely that cream, or at least its updated version, is now the Extra Emollient Night Cream. You can still purchase that product. It also may be the skin softener used in the Satin Hands Pampering Set, though it can’t be purchased separately. Check with your consultant to see if she (or he) can get you some samples of either/both of those creams.

  • Irina Original review: Oct 24, 2013. Reply

    I happened to win free Mary Kay Timewise kit samples and microdermabrasion sample kit. Just used it without any projection. I am 46, my skin is stil oily in Tzone, rough and has large pores. Microdermabrasion instantly got my attention. I don’t remember having so soft skin even when I was 20. But the biggest difference I noticed when I ran out of samples. In 5 days I called consultant back and ask for appointment ASAP. I also bought spot treatment for acne for my 13 years old daughter (5% salicilic acid). Few years ago I started with rosacea pimples. I never had pimples before. I tried all kind of treatments. Being a physician I never considerd over the counter “stuff”. I used metronidazole gel, even antibiotic pills for 6 mo with very little results. So, I desided to try spot treatment and it worked a wonder in 7-10 days. I stil have some rosacea pink discolorations on my cheecks, but they are absolutely flat and can be easily covered with pressed powder now. Go figure. I checked other over the counter products at Walmart and all others acne treatments had salicilic acid 2%, none had 5%.
    Overall, I do suggest to give MK a try. It works for me very well.

    I have used Mary Kay since I was 19 years and am now 50. I tried other things that were cheaper over the years but I am allergic to most of them. Mary Kay is the only base makeup and eye shadow that I can wear without it making my skin and eyelids raw. I love the new cream eye shadows, especially. I also get told that I don’t look my age a lot. I have very few, if any wrinkles and lines on my face. I would give it 10/10!!

    I bought several Mary Kay products under the recommendation of a friend and I love the range! I agree with a lot of the other reviewers. Mary Kay products are amazing. I am using TimeWise Targeted-Action Line Reducer because I have wrinkles but I have noticed they are not getting any bigger or deeper.

    I found mary kay timewise microdermabrasion cleanser to be an excellent alternative to the microdermabrasion they have at the beauty therapist. I will rate this product 5 out of 5 but I have not evaluated other Mary Kay skin care products.

    My skin is definitely smoother after switching to Mary Kay. I through out my old moisturizer because it did not stop my wrinkles. I wish I could go back because I would use Mary Kay Timewise Age-Fighting cream to stop the wrinkles from coning to life. One day they might invent a time machine and I can go back and repair things.

    Mary Kay Timewise is pretty good. This product is amazing! I have tried many different skin care serums and moisturizers but nothing comes close to Mary Kay Timewise. The products are fairly priced and I have a good relationship with my consultant. I would rather give her an income than some overpaid fat cat ceo.

    I started using Mary Kate after reading Good Housekeeping and they awarded Mary Kay® Age-Fighting Products a the best anti wrinkle products. I swear by Mary Kay moisturizers and love the way their products work.

    Mary Kay TimeWise Targeted-Action Line Reducer is a very good skin care product from Mary Kay. I have been using it for two years and have certainly noticed quite a change in my skin. You need to apply it twice per day and in about 3 months you can see the results of this product. I have not tried other Mary Kay skin care products but there make up is very good. I think they are even in the process of developing a mineral make up. See what happens.
