A Makeup Love Affair

I have been asked the question so many times…. With all of the makeup out there and all the brands you’ve tried why do you go back to Elf?

Simple. I like to save money especially when it’s a good quality product. Elf is a brand that has stood the test of time from regular women to seasoned pros, They’ve held their own out here in this cruel makeup world where one bad product could mean the end of your company. I’m never afraid to say that when it comes to some things I am a “Penny Pincher”. Not to downplay any high end brands. I have a lot of high end brands in my stash but none that get as much use as all of my ELF products.

I got introduced to ELF cosmetics six years ago when I started doing YouTube. I ordered a few things and fell in love. I couldn’t believe what I got for the money I spent. It was unbelievable. I maybe spent $50 and got a huge amount of products. At the time I only ordered things that I knew I would use on a daily basis like brushes, lipglosses, and some powder products. I just knew that I would regret my entire purchase. To my surprise, I reached for those products every day.

ELF cosmetics has become a very trusted brand for me. The quality of the products is amazing and so is the value. I could not be more pleased with the company, products, or customer service. I love ELF products. I must say that it started with the lip products though. Those Hypershine glosses hooked me from day one.

I was always on a quest to find a good lipgloss that didn’t make my lips too sticky and well I found them. And they were only $1. I have a ton of them in my makeup collection. Their blushes and bronzers were a hit with me too. Not all of their products work for me but I’m not disappointed. They keep expanding the lines so there are more products to get to know and love than I could ever imagine. I don’t ever regret an ELF purchase. I also have staples that I only get from the ELF line.

From their studio to the basic line to now the skincare line, ELF has become a trusted and household name to women and men all over. It’s no wonder ELF is so successful. Quality products at rock bottom prices. I hope they continue to bring us these awesome products and keep expanding their lines. I can’t wait to see what they bring to us next.

Mary Kay Timewise Miracle Set Review

www.marykay.com/dwalker81315


This set was a true miracle worker on my skin. I have acne and early signs of aging and this set really helped my skin. Before I started using this set I was just washing with soap and water and using lotion for a moisturizer. By the time I was 25, I noticed the wrinkles and patchy skin rearing it’s ugly self on my face. I got a sample of this and I loved it so much. I couldn’t wait to get the full size version. The independent clinical Study on this set was conducted on age-fighting and rosacea.
Here are the results:

AGE-FIGHTING BENEFITS AND CLAIMS
 As seen by a dermatologist on panelists in a  12-week clinical study: 

  • 83% had a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Up to 25% improvement in skin elasticity 
  • 100% had softer, more supple skin 
  • 46% improvement in more even skin
 
ROSACEA BENEFITS AND CLAIMS
 As seen in a 2 week study on individuals with rosacea:
  •  87% felt it soothed their skin  
  • 72% felt it provided a healthy glow 
  • 59% felt it improved the condition of visible red skin
The TimeWise® Miracle Set® is not a cure for rosacea and does not treat it but it is a skin care regimen that’s highly compatible for those who have this super sensitive skin.
 
About each product in the system:
  • The TimeWise Cleanser combines age-fighting benefits, plus three essential skin care benefits in one product to cleanse, exfoliate, and refresh – revealing younger-looking skin.

  • The TimeWise Moisturizer is formulated with an exclusive dream humectant blend, plus powerful antioxidants that help guard against free radicals to help skin look and feel smooth and radiant. It hydrates for up to 10 hours while helping control excess oil.
  • Together, TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 and TimeWise® Night Solution deliver an exclusive Pronewal® system around the clock with crucial protection during the day and boosted renewal at night.

Now, I don’t know about you but I do love Facts. When I can see it in black and white then I can see myself using the product in good faith knowing the benefits of it. This set is available in two formulas, combination/oily or normal/dry. I currently use the combination/oily. I can’t say enough about this system and the products it contains. It has 11 skin loving benefits, 19 patents worldwide, has the Good Housekeeping Seal, one of the most successful products ever sold by Mary Kay and clinically proven results. You can’t go wrong with this system it will help your skin and if you add the firming eye cream and Microdermabrasion like I did, you now have the ultimate miracle set which, targets all skincare issues across the board. This is an awesome regime. I have not used anything else that even come close to this and most likely never will.
