I had a birthday last month. Whenever people ask me how old I am, I usually first respond with, “I’m older than I look.” And I smirk a little because of how proud I am that people can NEVER guess how old I am. And then I when I reveal that I am 36 years old, people immediately put on their shocked faces and demand to see some identification as proof. It’s really the only thing that gets me through my birthdays. I know that I’m going to turn 40 and everyone will think I’m 10 years younger. I can definitely handle that.
I’ve had a lot of people ask what my secret is. I’m about to reveal to you what my “secret “ is. But I want you to know, I have pretty good genes too. My mom has aged pretty well herself so, I definitely started a little ahead of the game.
But what my genes don’t handle, I leave to Mary Kay Cosmetics. Mary Kay has been around for over 50 years, so it’s likely you’ve all heard of it. Maybe you or your mom have been to a Mary Kay pampering party. Maybe you’ve even tried their products for a bit, but then stopped…for whatever reason. Well, I’ve been using Mary Kay products for near 15 years now. I’ll tell you right now that I don’t use exclusively Mary Kay. I supplement with other things. I like to try new products from different lines to see how they compare. Sometimes I stick with my Mary Kay, sometimes I switch brands.
But the majority of my skincare routine is Mary Kay. And because of this, I actually became a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant abut 13 years ago. I don’t have much of a salesperson personality and so for the most part, I have ordered for myself and for friends and family. But since I’ve had so many ask recently about my skincare routine and since it’s become that much more important with a job where I stand outside for 10 hours a day, I thought I’d share some of my MUST HAVES with you all.
DISCLAIMER: I will absolutely include links of all of these products. They’ll direct you to my personal Mary Kay website. If you already have a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant, please contact her and order your products, but if you don’t, I’d love to help you out! And at the end of this post, I’ll even tell you how you can earn some free product!
TimeWise Miracle 3D Set- 4 Products- $110
The TimeWise Miracle Set 3D® defends, delays and delivers for younger-looking skin. This full-spectrum, three-dimensional approach helps minimize the appearance of skin aging.
- TimeWise® Age Minimize 3D™ 4-in-1 Cleanser

I have tried A LOT of cleanser/moisturizer combinations. I always come back to this one. It always makes me feel clean, and I definitely need the SPF 30 in the Day Cream since I spend all day outside. And I love the daily anti-aging benefits. Full disclosure, I don’t use the Age Minimize 3D Eye Cream. But I’ve heard it’s a good one. I do use a different Mary Kay eye cream and I’ll talk about that later.
TimeWise Repair Volu-Fill Deep Wrinkle Filler- $45
Targeted formula immediately fills in deep wrinkles and helps improve their appearance over time.

- Significantly impacts the appearance of all six wrinkle zones.**

This is one of my favorite products. It’s new in the last couple of years. I use it on my forehead expression lines (they’re wrinkles, but I like using “expression lines” because it makes me feel less old). I can definitely tell when I run out and haven’t had a chance to order more. I try not to let that happen. I’m absolutely one of the 100% of women that saw improvement in the appearance of wrinkle severity!
