Product Review—Anti-Aging Skin Care : Mary Kay TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Lifting Serum—I’ve Been Lifted!
There is a common saying about the time-defying looks of my fellow beauties with melanin-enriched skin—“Black don’t crack.” While my 55+ skin may be wrinkle-free, I do have other issues associated with aging skin, as do other Black women. One of those is that I am battling the loss of elasticity. While the skin of White women may see premature wrinkling due to excessive sun exposure and chronological, intrinsic aging, more often that not, aging Black skin suffers from sagging, particularly around the lower jaw (jowls), hyperpigmentation and rough texture.
I love that look of a tight jawline, and I’m looking to get close to that non-sagging jawline that I had 10 years ago. Is that too much to ask? I think not…
In the meantime, I have been trying several products that promise lifting and “volumizing” for my skin. One of those is Mary Kay TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Lifting Serum.
Here are the details about Mary Kay TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Lifting Serum:

Upon first application, I was quite impressed with Mary Kay TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Lifting Serum. A lightweight formula that sinks right into the skin, TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Lifting Serum immediately gave my skin a feeling of tautness and was moist. So moist, in fact, that I was tempted to forgo moisturizer.
The part of my face that I am pretty much obsessed with saving, is the lower half–the nasal labial line and the jawline. Prior to starting this serum, my “smile” lines were pretty defined and 2 months after, they were significantly reduced. I also have seen a tightening in my lower jaw area.
I love that Mary Kay TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Lifting Serum not only has treatment qualities, but also helped with the moisturization level of my skin. Rather than feeling like I needed to reapply moisturizer during the day, the addition of this serum enabled my moisturizer to work longer. I also have noticed that my skin looks much more radiant on the days that I use this serum. (During the course of my testing, I tried to use the serum both day and night).
Pros: Penetrates skin, fills and firms, lightweight, increases moisture retention
Cons: Can roll when moisturizer is layered on top if too much product is used
