Review : Mary Kay TimeWise Microdermabrasion Plus Set promises you the perfect looking skin upclose!

Three years ago I came across Mary Kay and tried out their Botanical Effects Skin range and even did a review back then. Today I'm revisiting the brand and trying out their new TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Plus Set which consists of TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Refine and the brand-NEW TimeWise® Pore Minimizer serum which helps us achieve flawless looking skin.

Glad to find that both these products are clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy, Fragrance-free and oil-free and Non-comedogenic (which means it will not clog pores).

Did you know it’s estimated that there is an average of 20,000 pores on a person’s face? With that enormous amount, it’s easy to get hyper focused on them, as some pores are particularly visible or become more visible over time. They can appear big and lose their shape due to aging and other factors. With the latest Mary Kay TimeWise® Pore Minimizer, it will significantly reduces the visible number of pores. In fact, after using Pore Minimizer twice a day for three weeks, 8 out of 10 women said they’re happier with the look of their skin, even close-up. So I'm pretty excited to put this to test to show you guys the result! 

Mary Kay TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Refine (70g) is the Step 1 in this set. It is an advanced exfoliator (or some called it scrub) containing key exfoliating ingredients used by dermatologists to energize skin immediately by effectively removing dead skin cells from inside and around the edges of pores. This process helps reduce the appearance of pores. The creamy lotion also feeds and nourishes the skin from below through increased microcirculation. This brings oxygen to the surface of the skin to stimulate circulation, creating a healthy, more radiant glow.

Key Ingredients
Alumina (Aluminum Oxide) - a gentle exfoliant used to remove dead surface cells. This is the key exfoliating ingredient used by many dermatologists.

Ingredient list

 Texture  : This creamy white scrub comes with very fine exfoliating crystals scrub

After cleansing I applied a quarter-sized amount of TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Refine on my wet face and gently massage into skin with fingertips. I can feel the scrub beads rubbing against my skin and I would advice you guy to be gentle because this scrub beads are not water soluble. After that I usually rinse with warm water before I finished off with cold water and pat dry.

Immediately I can feel my skin is smoother, pores looks smaller and skin looks brighter and probably because all the dead skin cells and dirt has been scrubbed off. I like how the scrub is effective yet not drying, plus my skin is so nice to touch after exfoliation! 

The new Mary Kay TimeWise® Pore Minimizer (29ml) is Step 2 under this Microdermabrasion Plus Set. 

This gentle, fast-absorbing serum provides a daily defense against the look of enlarged pores. It reduces the appearance of pores and immediately improves skin texture, leaving skin feeling nourished and relieved of stress while visibly improving skin clarity. Use this twice a day to achieve  flawless-looking complexion. This product is suitable for all skin types including those with sensitive skin.

Key Ingredients 

Persian Silk Tree Bark Extract – Native to Asia, Persian Silk Tree also is called the “sleeping tree” in Japan because each night, its delicate, fern‐like leaves slowly close. This bark extract is shown to support factors important to skin,† which may help tighten the look of skin overall and around pores. 

Soy Bean Extract – Using a process to help make soy protein more compatible for the skin, this extract helps deliver the benefits of the pore minimizer. Soy bean extracts are reported to support factors, important for skin’s integrity, which may help tighten the look of skin overall and around pores.

 Ingredient list

Texture : Light creamy lotion in white and changes to pale pink when I massage on my skin.
I used about 2 pumps to massage all over my face. It absorbs immediately after application without leaving any sticky or greasy feeling on my skin. I follow up with my moisturizer after that. 

I actually started to realised my pores on my cheek has becomes more obvious in this early of the year. I read that it might be due to skin aging ; loss of skin elasticity!

I have been using Mary Kay TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Plus Set for about 3 weeks and overall I feel my face becomes brighter, smoother and firmer. open pores did not disappeared magically but I can said that skin texture looks more refine hence pores seems to look smaller now. Skin clarity seems to improve for sure from the picture I took 3 weeks apart. 

I guess this 2 products under the Microdermabrasion Plus Set complements each other where Microdermabrasion Refine remove buildup from pores making it ready for the Pore Minimizer to penetrate into the skin to minimize pores  taking your skin-smoothing, age-defying skin care regimen to a new level.

My almost perfect skin upclose!
I will think I will continue to use range to see any more further improvement and will keep you guys updated here. Like I mentioned before beauty products are not magic cream or filter apps, for one to have great looking skin we must put effort in taking care of our skin besides practicing a healthy lifestyle which is to eat healthily, have sufficient sleeping hours and exercise regularly!

So if you have dull looking skin and open pores issues, you might want to try out this range from Mary Kay! Mary Kay TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Plus Set is sold at RM350 and do contact Mary Kay; Independent Beauty Consultant 03-7711 7500 or log on to to find out more.
