Mary Kay Skincare and the New Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush

Independent Mary Kay consultant, Kate Thiel, is today’s guest contributor, sharing product recommendations and a special promotion!

Like many consultants, Kate not only sells Mary Kay products, but also is a devoted MK user as well. Her personal skincare regimen, and one she feels is one of the best available, is a series of TimeWise products.

Kate Thiel's Mary Kay Skincare Regimen

  1. 3-in-1 Cleanser: Cleanse, exfoliate, and freshen in one step.
  2. Age-Fighting Moisturizer: Hydrates up to 10 hours, and accelerates the skin's natural renewal process.
  3. Day Solution Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 35: Help the collagen in your skin, giving it more support, like “control-top panty hose” for your face and essential sunscreen to fight the aging process.
  4. Night Solution: Vitamins and peptides for skin renewal.
  5. Volu-Firm Eye Renewal Cream or Firming Eye Cream: Fight fine lines and wrinkles, while improving skin firmness and brightening the eye area.
  6. Luminous-Wear Foundation: An important final step of your skincare routine each morning, foundation acts as a barrier against dirt, germs, and other nasty stuff while evening out skin tone.

Since your natural skin exfoliation process slows down in your 30s, you might find your skin appears dull and lifeless. Moisture is lost, leaving you with dry skin and a decrease in your skin’s natural protection barrier. In your 40s, skin damage becomes more visible. You’ll see more freckles and age spots, uneven skin, and increased trouble with dryness.

Kate Thiel’s Five Essential Skincare Steps
There are five essential daily skincare steps: cleansing, moisturizing, toning, exfoliating, and protecting. Mary Kay makes this easy by offering a selection of TimeWise and Repair products, all which have been tested together across product lines. This means you can mix and match based on your skin needs and preferences. By staying within one brand family, you can be more confident that your favorite products will work well together.

The Mary Kay TimeWise Miracle Set helps prevent skin from drooping and inhibits the formation of wrinkles.

The TimeWise Repair set will help improve your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while tightening skin.

The Repair set is intended for women over 50, but many women prefer to use Repair products well before turning 50. Kate chooses to use the Repair Volu-Firm Eye Renewal Cream with the Miracle set because it feels smooth and refreshing.

Special Promotion for Blog Readers
Kate is so enthusiastic about Mary Kay’s new ultrasonic Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush, which you can use with a cleanser to help remove makeup and leave skin fresh and clean.

Pottery Barn Kids Lunch Bags: Cute, but Annoying

When my daughter transitioned to "big kid school" this fall, I bought her a personalized lunch bag from Pottery Barn Kids. This was our first time having to send lunch to school, so I wanted her to enjoy carrying the bag and also have it be practical. She's just turning 4, so it was important that she be able to open the bag herself and carry it from the car to the lunch cart without assistance.

Pottery Barn Kids offers a slew of fabric patterns and four bag styles. Penny picked the MacKenzie Chocolate Zebra classic lunch bag, which is a fairly standard size and shape lunch box. We paid $7 to have her name embroidered on the bag, which I figured was worth the price to ensure her box isn't mixed up with another kid's lunch. I let Penny pick the font and thread color and ordered online.

Our classic lunch bag has now been used every weekday for nearly three months, but it looks more like a year old. It's still functional in that Penny can carry it in to school, o…

Switching from Olay Regenerist to L'Oreal RevitaLift

I've been using Olay Regenerist DNA Superstructure UV Cream for years now. I love the SPF 25 (it's now 30) the thick moisturizing quality, and how fresh my skin feels once it's absorbed. It's really thick, so it tends to need more time before I put on foundation, and it does leave my skin a touch lighter than it is in real life. The sunscreen ingredients mean this moisturizer smells just like traditional sun protection, and even a bit like my daughter's diaper cream (ick), but I know it's doing it's job and I've been really happy with it.


I intended to buy some more during a trip to Walmart today, but L'Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Day Lotion had a $2 off coupon attached, and the base price was less than the Olay product, so I took a chance and bought  the RevitaLift instead.


L'Oreal's bottle is prettier with a similar pump mechanism. Like Olay, the product is in an opaque container, which helps keep the contents from being affected by ligh…

eSalon.com Hair Color Review

It's now May 2014 and since my original review, I've had a chance to fly out to eSalon and see how orders are processed, learn the right way to apply color, and find out the differences between box color and eSalon color. I learned a lot and have a totally different perspective now and would definitely recommend giving eSalon a try.

When you order from eSalon, be sure to upload a current, well-lit photo of your hair and don't hesitate to ask their color experts for advice. The eSalon team are experts. Let them help you find the right shade and apply color correctly. It's a learning process if you're used to box color products.

Last August, I tried eSalon. At the time, I found the color was fine in that it was even and matched what I had seen online for that shade, but it wasn't really what I was going for. eSalon's customer service was helpful, with a colorist calling to explain how their product differs from what I buy in-store and the risks of going darke…
