I just have to say that I have not always had the best skin. And to cover up for my imperfections I've tried various brands of make-up and facial cleansers--Neutrogena, Oil of Olay, Swiss Ivy, Sephora, Clinique ... the list goes on and on. I figure that if I could have back all the money I've spent on dermatologists and products in the name of getting vibrant healthy skin, I'd probably be able to afford to take Matt on a little romantic getaway to Cozumel (any excuse to dive and see his pecs!).
A few years ago a friend suggested I try Mary Kay. I'd always thought it was a gimmick but decided to at least try it when she offered me product at wholesale pricing. I started with the Miracle Set plus some acne treatment gel. All I can say is HALLELUJAH! My skin tone is even, my skin looks bright, and I rarely get adult zits (fewer than 3 a year--down from 3 a month!). Don't even get me started on the fact that I'm not even in the early stages of crow's feet!
Now my vanity drawer looks like a Mary Kay saleswoman vomited pink and black product everywhere. I use the foundation, the eyeshadow, the lipgloss, the microdermabrasion ... and I love it all.
If you have skin product you love then you can relate to how great I feel when I put on my Mary Kay.
- Wash with the 3-in-1 face wash.
- Put 1/4 inch of acne treatment gel on my pointer finger. Rub together and slather all over my face (I only do this once a day. If you have bad acne or super oily skin you can do it morning and night).
- Put on Day or Night Serum.
- Mix dab of face lotion with dab of liquid foundation (morning only) and rub into skin.
