Mary Kay Timewise Launch in Manila

I was invited to the Manila launch of Mary Kay TimeWise a few days ago. TimeWise is Mary Kay’s latest anti aging skin care line.

Mary Kay Timewise Launch Manila Makati Shangri-la

As a woman entering into the late thirties (eeeeeek! Did I say that right??), I am doing my best to take better care of my skin. Once age spots and fine lines appear, it will be very difficult to get rid of them. So I try to maintain habits that are good for the skin. I owe it to myself to keep looking good. All women should, because “when you look good, you feel good.”

I try to eat healthily and keep myself hydrated with water. I also try to stick to a skincare routine – cleansing, toning and moisturizing. Lately I’ve had several diamond peel sessions, and I think they have somehow evened out my complexion.

And yes, I never leave home without putting on sunblock.

During the launch, Mary Kay introduced the new TimeWise Moisture Renewing Gel Mask and the Liquid Foundations line.

Mary Kay TimeWise Moisture Renewing Gel Mask

The new Mary Kay TimeWise Moisture Renewing Gel Mask is a refreshing facial skin care product that you can add to your nightly regimen. The gel mask is supposed to even out your skin tone, reduce pores and fine lines, and make your skin feel supple and smoother. I had a sample application of the gel mask during the event. My skin did feel refreshed and smoother right after application.

How to use the Mary Kay TimeWise Moisture Renewing Gel Mask:

  1. After cleansing and toning the face, apply the TimeWise Moisture Renewing Gel Mask all over the face and neck in gentle, circular massaging motion. Avoid the getting too close to the eye and mouth areas.
  2. Leave on overnight.
  3. When you wake up in the morning, wash face with water to rinse off the gel. Proceed with your usual daytime face skin care.

Ensogo Vouchers for Diamond Peel at YSA Skin Care

A few days ago, I went to my first-evarr diamond peel session at YSA using the Ensogo vouchers that I bought.

Yes, I try to keep a level of vanity when it comes to my skin. I also try to keep abreast of anti aging skin products. But I stick to the basics and the DIYs too.

A few weeks ago, however, Ensogo offered a deal that was hard to resist: diamond peel sessions at 80% discount! So I bought myself some Ensogo vouchers.

Diamond peel treatments are supposed to rejuvenate the skin and work on blemishes like fine lines, sun spots and freckles. I started getting some of those already. So I figure it’s time to get working on ’em before they get too many. 😛

The attendant at the YSA branch I went to was very, very meticulous – karir kung karir sa pricking during the facial treatment stage. I feel I really got a good deal. It’s been several days since, and I think, ahem, my skin does feel smoother. (Or it could be that I’m imagining things, in keeping with the Halloween spirit, y’know. hehe)

On a side note, Ensogo deals are awesome. I’ve gotten a lot of savings on restaurant, spa and beauty vouchers already. So watch out for the next deals – log on to the website and register na.

Shu Uemura beauty loot | White Recovery EX

A few months ago, I blogged about having claimed my Php10,000-worth of gift certificates from Shu Uemura. Back in December, I joined an online rafflle promo of Visa and I was one of the lucky consolation prize winners! So I finally was able to get my Shu Uemura beauty loot.

After the Expo Mom event at Rockwell on Mother’s Day, I was finally able to use the GCs at the Shu Uemura Boutique. Accompanied by Julie, I splurged all 10k!

I decided to get skin care products because I rarely wear makeup. Besides, it’s good investment for the future.

So how far did the 10K worth of GCs get me? Here is my Shu Uemura beauty loot.
