Sponsor Spotlight *Mary Kay* #ABE2

     Everyone has heard of Mary Kay.. I'm sure.  Mary Kay is sold by Independent Beauty Consultants.  I was contacted by one of those consultants to offer one of you a little something special.  Heather Svihl isa Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant and she sells the full line of Mary Kay skin care, body care, fragrances and color cosmetics.  Heather can offer one on one consultations, a party with friends, a virtual party, makeup tips, skin care advice, and free samples.  You can try some of the products before you buy them.

     Heather sent me over a few samples to try out.  First I was sent a sample of the TimeWise Miracle Set.  This set provides incredible age-fighting results to help maintain younger looking skin.  The set offers ll age-defying benefits in one skin care regimen:
  • cleanse
  • exfoliate
  • freshen
  • energize
  • hydrate
  • smooth
  • firm
  • soften
  • protect
  • rebuild
  • reduce fine lines and wrinkles
   There are 4 parts to the TimeWise Miracle Set: 3-in 1 Cleanser, Age-Fighting Moisturizer, Day Solution sunscreen SPF 25, and Night Solution.  You can choose Normal to Dry or Combination to Oily formula.  I tried this out and really like it.  After washing my face at night with the cleanser and using the Age Fighting Moisturizer and Night Solution I woke up in the morning and my face was soft and fresh.  Usually when I wake up my skin looks blochy, but after using this product I did not have that same morning experience.  I also tend to have sensitive skin and my skin did not have any adverse reactions, but just the opposite with no negative reaction.

     The other sample I was sent was the Satin Hands Set.  This set is a 3-step set to acheive some of the softest hands.

Step 1: Use the Fragrance-Free Satin Hands® Hand Softener to help maintain skin’s natural moisture.
Step 2: Cleanse and exfoliate with one pump of Fragrance-Free Satin Hands® Satin Smoothie® Hand Scrub and warm water.
Step 3: Apply a small amount of Fragrance-Free Satin Hands® Hand Cream for instant moisturization for up to 24 hours.

      Satin Hands even lasts after several hand washings. This set achieves really soft hands. I have tried this set before and actually already have some that my husband uses.  John works outside, working with his hands.  So he comes home with dry, cracked, rough hands.  A friend had shared a sample of the Satin Hands with him before our wedding and he really liked it.  He is not one to put on lotion much, something about it feeling weird to him.  But he will use the Satin hands and loves the results.  I also love the results of the Satin Hands Set. 

     When trying to conceive, when pregnant, and after it is always important to take care of yourself.  A happy mom makes a happy baby.  You can get these and many more great products to pamper yourself, the mom to be in your life, or anyone you want to spoil from Heather.  

     Heather will be donating a $10 Gift Card to Mary Kay and a sample of the TimeWise Miracle Set to be added to the Blogtastic Extravaganza New Beginnings Prize pack  Make sure you check out Heather's website and like her facebook page.  


I was provided a $10 gift card and samples to use for review purposes.  I was not compensated in any way.  All thoughts and opinions are my own and not influenced.

  4. I learned that the Satin Hands products last through Several Washings! This is great because my hands tend to dry our really quickly from soap!
