I’m usually quite sceptical about trying new skincare products as my skin is a little sensitive. However, I’ve decided to try the all NEW MARY KAY ® TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Plus Set. Mary Kay products has been clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy, thus I’m more comfortable about using it. The kit consists of two items, which are the TimeWise® Pore Minimizer serum and TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Refine.
I’m trying this product because recently noticed that my pores are getting larger and my skin appearance seems rougher with some slight redness to it. This is a sure sign of age catching up on me. Thus, upon hearing that MARY KAY ®TimeWise® Pore Minimizer serum can significantly reduce my visible pores and improves skin texture makes me wants to try it. To get the best results, its advice to use together with TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Refine, which helps to remove impurities from build-up pores and allowing our skin to fully absorb the serum.
Let’s begin with the routine of the products. After cleansing my face, I kick start with TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Refine. It is an advanced exfoliator containing key exfoliating ingredients used by dermatologists to energize skin immediately by effectively removing dead skin cells from inside and around the edges of pores.
Method of usage as below:
- Use twice a week to remove impurities from build-up pores.
- Squeeze 20cents amount onto palm & apply onto wet face
- Massage in circular and upward motion to exfoliate for 3 – 5 minutes.
- Cleanse with warm water
Verdict: The product is fragrance-free and texture is a refine crystal exfoliate in white color. There’s no greasy feeling as it’s an oil-free product. Massage gently against your face as the exfoliator is not water soluble. After using this exfoliator, my skin immediately felt much smoother (like baby skin). I love it as it’s effective at the same time does not cause dryness on my skin (compared to other exfoliator I’ve used)
After applying toner, follow with TimeWise® Pore Minimizer serum. This gentle serum provides a daily defense against the look of enlarged pores. It reduces the appearance of pores and immediately improves skin texture, leaving our skin feeling nourished.
This serum features a combination of botanical extracts to help deliver powerful benefits to our skin. Persian silk tree bark extract and soybean extract are shown to support skin proteins, which helps tighten the look of skin overall and around pores. While, whip extract and evodia fruit extract delivers skin-calming and comforting effects.
Method of usage:
- Apply twice a day, once in the morning and evening.
- Use before moisturizer
- Pump 2 drops and apply to entire face
Verdict: This is an oil-free product thus does not clog my pores. There’s no scent to it as it’s fragrance-free as well. White and creamy in texture, it’ll turn slightly pinkish when you apply to your face. Texture is super light and the serum absorbs easily onto my skin. Being an oil-free product, it is definitely non-greasy and sticky . I finish my routine with moisturiser.
