Review : Mary Kay Timewise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector

Mary Kay TimeWise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector

“You have grey hairs!” – declared my husband.  For him to notice, it is MAJOR!  Luckily for me and all the greying ladies out there, we have hair dye to combat this sign of ageing!

Another classic sign of ageing is wrinkles.  Unfortunately, wrinkles is not that easy to hide…

I am in my mid-thirties so wrinkles are a big concern for me.  A few months ago, I was offered Botox injections but I had to decline as I am still breastfeeding Bunty.

And then recently, I was offered Mary Kay TimeWise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector to trial and I immediately said YES PLEASE!  GET THEE TO MY WRINKLES STAT!

Playing with Mary Kay Make-Up…

I was recently blessed with a generous and delightful care package courtesy of Mary Kay filled with make-up galore.  Everything was delicately wrapped and every time, I opened something up, I was like, “WOW!” or “OOH!”  #makeupporn

My Husband heard all these “interesting” noises so he came to my Beauty Room to investigate and he, being a guy who has no interest in make-up whatsoever, just smiled, shrugged his shoulders and went back to his Man Cave.

Anyway, I thought I’d do a #makeupporn picture heavy post so here I go…

Tried & Tested Trio : Face Cleansers

pod liquid detox cleanser, Mary Kay Botanical Effects cleanser, Dr Lewinn's Glycolic Acid Cleanser

I go through face cleansers as if I have ten faces instead of one!  Maybe I just have a REALLY BIG pancake face?!!!  I double cleanse which means that I use a cleansing oil beforehand to remove any residues of make-up and sunscreen and then I use a cleanser.  The following are 3 lucky face cleansers which had the pleasure of cleansing my face for the past few months.

(Psst :  I have dry sensitive skin so I had to whisper “Please be gentle” to the cleansers before I cracked them open to use.  No, seriously, I did! :P)

Picture the following scenario…  You’re getting it on with your partner and it’s getting all hot and heavy when suddenly you feel the roughest sandpaper hands on your delicate body parts.  Do you shriek and stop or carry on because you like it like that?  If you shriek and stop, then you will definitely be interested in the following 3 Mary Kay products from the Satin Hands range which changed my husband’s sandpaper “rough as guts” hands to softer and much more pleasant (but still very manly) hands :-

  • Mary Kay Satin Smoothie Hand Scrub
  • Mary Kay Fragrance Free Hand Softener

Beauty Bites Featuring Michelle Phan, Mary Kay & Spiderman

Welcome to another edition of Beauty Bites where I show you all bits ‘n’ bobs of my beauty-filled life 🙂

Michelle Phan, Michelle Phan in Melbourne Australia, Michelle Phan for Lancome

Michelle Phan in Melbourne :  I spent this Friday afternoon with THE Michelle Phan of YouTube beauty guru fame.  She was in Melbourne to do a Lancôme Makeup Masterclass event, but a bunch of Melbourne beauty bloggers and I got to meet her beforehand to chat about blogging.  I will admit that I had a major Phan-girl moment.  Anyway, I recorded some video footage so will probably post it up later on my YouTube channel (subscribe please!) and for more photos of her, I will be adding it to The Best Beauty Blog Facebook page later so keep your eyes peeled for that.  (Update : here’s the FB link)

High Tea with Mary Kay :  A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting the Melbourne representatives of the beauty brand, Mary Kay to learn about their new Mary Kay Botanical Effects Skin Care range.  I also enjoyed my first high tea experience!!!  It was fantastic except for the cheese-filled quiches.  Did I tell you I am a cheese-phobic?  But I love whipped cream though (with scones and jam), even though I am lactose intolerant.

OPI Spiderman
OPI The Amazing Spiderman Collection :  You guys know how much I love OPI, right?  Well, this mini collection is my new splurge…but my stupid nails keep breaking so I haven’t been able to swatch any nail polishes!  Argh!!!!!  Anyway, you can buy this at David Jones for $25.  I think David Jones is my current favourite shop…but I do more browsing than purchasing!


For Him :  I have gathered a reasonable amount of male beauty products from purchases, PR samples and goody bag gifts.  Yup, it is time to snare down my Husband and make him do some male beauty blogging.  He has done a few reviews before – have you read them?  This hair  review is his most popular post, thus far.

Anyway, I’m off to add the Michelle Phan photos on our Facebook page so if you wanna chat, see ya there!  I sound like a boring old fart, but hat’s how I roll on a Friday night 😛
