Ordinarily, I don't get so geeked over skin care products unless it's something totally new and hot off the press. Occasionally, there will be a skin care product that I have read or heard about and can't wait to try, so when it makes its way into my well-manicured hands, I'm truly excited to put it to the test. Such is the case with the new Mary Kay TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ line.
Since black skin ages differently from it's fairer counterparts—loss of elasticity and volume, sagging are primary signs—the mere name of this new Mary Kay skin care line had me raring to bathe in it. While I don't have wrinkles, I am seeing subtle changes in the contours of my face, so I look forward to pumping up the volume!
But, wait, there's more! When I first opened my Mary Kay® TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol, I was sort of stuck on stupid. Since I rarely read directions, I was a bit perplexed about the dispensing mechanism of this treatment moisturizer. But, I got it, and I was ecstatic! One of my main areas of discontent with skin care packaging that most times sticking my fingers in a jar, thereby exposing it to bacteria. Or, if the brand was so kind as to include a miniature spoon or spatula, I still have issues. Where do you stick that spatula in-between uses?
This new Mary Kay skin care line eliminates all that nonsense, with a pump jar for dispensing the moisturizers! I LOVE IT! Both the day and night moisturizing treatments come in this genius packaging. Bonus—the specially-designed applicator of the TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Eye Renewal Cream is sculpted to fit the shape of the eye and deliver maximum benefits while providing a cooling, pampering experience. I will check back with my review in about a month to give my final review of this line.
