The new Timewise Collection ($159.00) is a 3 step system consisting of 4 products that work together to unlock radiance and give you the building blocks of beautiful skin. Each formula contains: Encapsulated Resveratrol with triple antioxidants to even skin tone and support collagen, Vitamin B3 to brighten and smooth plus an Age Defying Peptide to support natural elastin, tone, tighten and lift. When used daily, the Minimize 3D Complex defends against free radicals, protects against environmental damage and delivers visible anti-aging results in just 4 weeks.
The Age Minimize 3D 4-in-1 Cleanser ($32.00) removes complexion-dulling impurities, exfoliates, brightens and purifies for a refreshing finish. The fragrance-free formula is suitable for sensitive skin with a creamy texture that eliminates dirt, oil, and sweat. The rich lather does not bubble or foam much but it is effective, especially when used with Mary Kay’s Skinvigorate Brush ($60.00) to abolish pore-clogging bacteria. The cleanser also rinses away traces of makeup without causing dryness so skin feels smooth and supple.
Step 2 is either the Age Minimize Day Cream ($47.00) or Night Cream ($47.00) depending on where you are in your routine. The Day Moisturizer is lush and hydrating with SPF 30 Broad Spectrum protection. I have a love-hate relationship with sunscreen because many of them irritate my skin but I haven’t experienced any negative reactions to this one and there is no white film or greasy residue. A little goes a long way and the formula helps even skin tone and improve the look of wrinkles with a silky finish.
Before bed, the Night Cream deeply moisturizes, replenishes, balances and firms so you awake to a dewy complexion. I layer it on quite generously to create a night mask effect that locks in nutrients and revives stressed skin. It absorbs very quickly and makes my face feel incredibly soft and plump.
If you want to know just how tired someone is, all you have to do is look them in the eye. Thankfully all those late nights of binge-watching your favorite shows and eating Doritos doesn't have to show on your face if you use the Age Minimize Eye Cream ($44.00). Simply massage some under and around the eye area to improve the look of fatigue, dark circles, fine lines, puffiness and dryness.
