TimeWise Even Complexion Dark Spot Reducer

So today I want to talk about dark spots. Yes, those pesky little buggers on your face that drive you bananas and you wish you could get rid of them forever but instead you use a mass amount of concealer and foundation to make them disappear.  Guess what?  Covering them up, disguising them, or attempting to hide them isn’t going to work.  What you need is a better solution and guess what?  We have it!!  YAY!  Now this is a brand new product that Mary Kay is offering and I’m sooo excited to introduce it to a few of my select customers who complain to me often about their dark spots.  I did steer them in the direction of a different product that we carry but when they announced that this beauty should be used along with the other product, I’m sold!

This information was taken directly from the website.

Diminishes the look of dark spots! That’s what eight out of ten women said after using TimeWise® Even Complexion Dark Spot Reducer in an independent consumer study**. Here’s what else they said:

*Softens the visible intensity of dark spots — 89%
*Helps fade the look of lingering acne spots — 84%
*Corrects the look of skin imperfections — 81%
*Visibly reduces the appearance of age spots — 79%

**Results reflect the percentage of panelists who agreed with the statements during a six-week independent consumer study.

Now is this the right product for me you ask?  It is if either of these apply to you.

*Women who want a targeted solution to combat the look of dark spots and freckles.
*Women who are a current TimeWise® Even Complexion Essence and Mask customer who wants to enhance your regimen.

Now if you use both the TimeWise Microdermabrasion and the Even Complexion Essence Mask, you do not want to use these two products on the same day. Instead, alternate them.  If you are going to use both products during the same week, you may want to limit the usage of each to two times per week.

Other characteristics of this product:
*Suitable for Sensitive Skin
*Fragrance-free
*Oil-free
*Non-comedogenic

So yes, practically everyone can use this product.

So what are you waiting for?  Go get rid of those pesky dark spots!!!

Holiday Gift Giving

And last but certainly not least, I do offer towers.  What is a tower?  Well let me explain.  The first tower I offer is called the “12 Days of Christmas” tower.  Or you can do a “12 hours of Christmas” tower.  Same concept…different way of giving it to your special one.  The idea, 12 boxes and inside of each box is a product.  They get to open one every day leading up to Christmas Day.  They range from $169-$299+tax depending on the products you want to put into each box.  They come in his and hers options so yes, again, the men won’t be left out.  I also offer mini towers as seen in the picture above and again, we can customize it for you.

So there you have it!  More holiday gift ideas to think about.

Happy Shopping!!!

Mary Kay @ Play Baked Eye Trios

I am seriously obsessed with the Mary Kay @ Play Baked Eye Trios in Tuxedo.  My favorite thing about baked eye makeup is that you can use it wet or you can use it dry.  Of course if you use it wet, you are going to achieve a more vivid, vibrant look.  Now since you can use the baked eye makeup wet, I have become addicted to using the black in the Tuxedo as my eyeliner.  In fact, I rarely use any other eyeliner.  This is my new go-to eyeliner product.

All you do is take an angled brush (as pictured), get it wet, and dip it into the eye color of choice.  Next, apply it along the lash line and voila!  Eyeliner!  Now because I have awkwardly shaped eyes/lids, I personally like to apply my eyeliner along the bottom lash line.  Of course you can apply to one or the other or both. 🙂   Here is another fun little tip when using the baked eye makeup– after you have applied your mascara and it has dried, take an eye makeup brush, dampen it, dip into the eye color of choice and apply to the tips of your eyelashes for some extra color and a unique, fun look.  As you can see with the Tuxedo, it has fun sparkle in it so when applying the color to the tips of your eyelashes, your lashes will sparkle.

The Baked Eye Trios are $10+tax each.  AMAZING price for such quality product!!  Now go buy some and become addicted just like me. 🙂

It’s here!!!

skinvigoratecleansingbrush

I have always wanted to invest in a face cleansing brush but if I’m being completely honest, I’m too cheap to pay that awesome price tag that comes along with the brush.  Imagine how excited I became when I learned that Mary Kay was coming out with their own cleansing brush.  I honestly sat at there thinking, “I bet it has a pretty price tag to go along with it”.  I wanted one really bad so I just knew it had to be pricey.  When they announced that the brush was only $50, I wanted to cry!  $50 for a cleansing brush!  Shut the front door!  So for $50, you get the tool, the AA batteries, and 2 brush heads.  Ummm…wow!!!  I’m sure some of you are reading this thinking that with a price tag like that, the quality has to be bad.  Ladies, I’m telling you…IT’S AMAZING!!!!  And with Mary Kay’s 100% satisfaction guaranteed, what do you have to lose?  I mean really?!  All consultants are able to order the brush for themselves and their customers first thing tomorrow so guess what I’m ordering?  Yup!  This girl is FINALLY getting a face cleansing brush!  Can I get a whoop whoop?!

Of course I can’t make this blog post without posting a deal.  That’s just not how I work when a brand new product comes out.

If you order your cleansing brush through me, you may also get a cleanser of your choice for half off!  Yes!!!  So buy a cleansing brush and receive a cleanser for half off!!  If you want an entire skin care set, I will subtract the amount of a cleanser completely off of the total of the skin care set.  You can’t beat that!  That’s how excited I am for this brush!

Visit marykay.com/mariaison  to order.  In your message to the consultant, please type the words CLEANSING BRUSH.

*If you already have a consultant, please order through her.  I can’t promise that she’s having the same deal BUT I fully respect my sister consultants. 🙂
