The Cleanser does the job of removing impurities and preparing the skin for the next step. It does all the cleansing, exfoliating, and freshening of your skin in one step. Mary Kay is all about being practical in how you take care of yourself - save time by combining several steps! It is part of the age-fighting collection, and being of that age when skin starts to look old even if I'm not really that old of course, I can relate to the concept! But for younger skin, like my daughter's, it's really great too. No reason to deny younger skin all the goodies it will really need in the future when it can start benefiting right away. I can say this products works for me. No harsh chemicals that cause allergic reactions, though I do avoid getting it in my eyes of course. And it definitely leaves the face with a good clean feel afterwards!
The Day Cream really is the best moisturizer I've ever used! Since I have that awful combination skin - dry on the cheeks so it gets horribly tight if I don't put lotion on it after it gets wet, and greasy on the nose and around the edge - I have trouble finding good moisturizers. Too greasy and my nose feels like its dripping oil; too light and my cheeks feel like they're about to crack.This Mary Kay moisturizer, also part of the age-fighting collection, is perfect. I hate to feel a heavy moisturizer on my face so I love the smooth light feel of this one. I just put it on and my face feels happy all day! And it contains an SPF 30 sunscreen so it not only moisturizes for 12 hours it also provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Of course I get the one for combination to oily skin type, but I hear the normal to dry skin type is also really great.
The Night Cream is the other half of the Day and Night Cream pair. Together they give your face that youthful unwrinkled and hydrated look. The night cream prepares your skin for the stressors of the next day with a boost of bedtime antioxidants. I love a product that works while I'm sleeping! It also moisturizes for the other 12 hours when the Day Cream has done its job!
The Eye Cream is part of the Miracle Set 3D, although there are several other eye creams that are sold separately. This one is formulated to work perfectly with the other products in this Miracle Set 3D. It brightens the sensitive eye area and keeps it moisturized for 12 hours. That's important because eyes are sensitive and it is important to use a specially formulated product on the sensitive skin near the eyes, and keep that skin well moisturized!
Do you have a favorite Mary Kay product?
As an update, Linda, I recently found out that Mary Kay is a founding member of an International Outreach Consortium that has been educating the Chinese government that alternative testing methods ensure safe and effective products. The expectation is that as a result of such efforts on the part of the Mary Kay company and others, the Chinese regulatory authority will soon end the requirement of animal testing.
Interesting! Their statement reads, "We do not conduct animal testing on our products or ingredients, nor ask others to do so on our behalf, except when absolutely required by law." My understanding about the animal testing is that it is only done in China, where it is required by Chinese law. Since they have a processing plant in China they comply with that law. One could suggest moving the plant elsewhere ....
Use to love her products when she was alive. Son has taken company in direction that she said she would never do.. Recently, I found out that animals are used for testing their products. I will never buy Mary Kay again.
