WIWW: Showing (& Sharing) Some Skin (Special Offer!)

Sickness has overcome the Massey house.  Hence my little blogging hiatus.  It started a week ago with an annoying scratchy throat and by Thursday both Jordan and I had something of a terrible cough and congestion. 
Baby girls steered clear of anything we had, though- thank you, Jesus.  I can leave it to Texas weather to stir up the worst of allergies in me.  This week it will be 80 degrees.. but when I took this picture for our date night- it was about 50 with a wind chill of like 30.
No wonder I’ve felt horrible.  Okay.  Enough of my pity party..

 Many have asked about my skin care routine.. This it is so flattering, but so funny to me because I really don’t have one at all.  I have had terrible skin my entire life and have tried numerous skin care regimens.  I trust the ‘name brands’ to do good things for my face and complexion and will pretty much use anything if it promises to clear my breakouts, fight dry skin, shrink my pores, lighten my dark spots.. blah, blah, blah..

You get it, right?  My lack of a skin care regimen is probably half my problem.  My skin is so freaked out!

About a month ago I had an opportunity to try the full line of Mary Kay TimeWise Miracle Set.  I have alwasy thought of MK to be something my mom and grandmother always used.  I was surprised at all the changes that have been made since I was first introduced to it. 

To be honest the extent of my experience with Mary Kay in the past was sneaking into my mom’s vanity drawer to use her night cream when I was 13 years old.  I know, right?  

So, here I am again with yet another facial product to try out on this skin of mine.  What the heck.  

In the first week I noticed some breakouts on my chin and cheeks, as well as my forehead, but after using it for a month now I can see the true results.  The pores on my nose and cheeks (always trouble areas for me) are so small and cleared up!  The dark spots on my cheeks have started to lighten (trouble with tanning beds and acne scars.. even if I didn’t have hardly any, those dark spots showed heavily after getting out of that bed!  Such a mistake!)

If I was bold enough to share a sans-makeup picture with you, I would.. actually I had intentions to, and forgot. For now, you can take my word for it- This stuff id great, and it’s not just for your mom and grandma any more!

  12. Love your look. You do have great skin. And a beautiful smile. I use the Timewise Repair set now…along with the microdermabrasion set. Love them both. Love, love, love!
