Since hitting the big 3-0, I have been noticing lines and *GASP* wrinkles! I have never really thought too much about what was in the lotions and potions that I bought- thinking that they were all about the same. Boy was I wrong! After doing a bit of research, I found out that a lot of popular skin care products contain gluten. Not all people that have gluten allergies or an intolerance through ingestion will have trouble with contact allergies. I have super sensitive skin and a lack of knowledge on beauty products- so I needed an expert!
As if the skin care gods could see my wrinkles forming, I was contacted by Anessa, a fabulous Mary Kay beauty consultant. I had never researched MK's product line and thought it would be a great opportunity to get more information on skin care! I stopped freaking out about my crow's feet and invited over a few of my girlfriends for a girls' morning-in with free facials, fruit infused water and homemade panna cotta!
Anessa even set M up with her very own mirror, headband and lotion sample!
Anessa talked to Ashleigh about the importance of starting a quality skin care regimen at a young age.
I tried the Timewise collection for my facial. My skin felt so rejuvenated and soft!
Since I have been in the market for a new skin care line, I explained to Anessa that I tend to react to products that contain wheat or oats. My former go-to face lotion always left me with red splotchy patches around my nose and on my cheeks. After only 3 days of using Mary Kay's TimeWise Miracle Set, I noticed the red splotches were going away! I personally have noticed a huge difference in my skin after starting to use gluten-free skin care products. My skin is super sensitive and it was smooth sailing after trying Mary Kay's products. If you want to try a super gentle skin care line, Mary Kay also offers the Botanical Effects collection.
Lindsey, my friend from Redhead Baby Mama, tried the Botanical Effects line.
Botanical Effects, is a collection that boosts your skin's health with the goodness of botanicals!
