Mary Kay New For Winter 2020

By Wednesday, December 23, 2020 , , , , , , , , , ,

Mary Kay has launched a some new permeant and limited edition items for the winter time.  I am pretty excited about them, so let's take a look.

Reusable Facial Pads (Limited Edition) / Set of 10 / $18

Reusable pads have quickly become an 'it' item. I have wanted to get some for a long time, but unfortunately due to the lockdowns this year I haven't been able to source some out. Mary Kay has answered my call and I now have a set to call my own.

This set contains 10 bamboo reusable pads and a bag for washing them.

I really love using them micellar water, eye makeup remover and toners. They are exceptionally soft and I find they wash up really well too.
Satin Hands Pampering Set is my all time favourite Mary Kay product, so whenever Mary Kay launches something in the line I get really excited. This season they launched two, so naturally I am incredibly excited.

Satin Hands Shea Hand Soap / $10

Hand Soap! Mary Kay has added hand soap to their Satin Hands line up! This is probably the most sought after product of 2020 so having more is never a bad thing.

Let's be honest, washing our hands as much as we have been can be hard on our hands, which is why this hand wash is so good. It cleans but also contains Shea butter to help stop your hands from drying out. This formula is fragrance free so it is even more gentle and less irritating.

I find that half a pump is more than enough to wash your hands. The lather is quite rich but loose and rinses easily. There is no fragrance to it but my hands smell mildy of a clean scent after which I can only assume is the shea butter in the formula. 

Satin Hands Shea Hand Sanitizer / $8

You probably could guess hand sanitizer would be the other product added to the Satin Hands line. You know it is 2020 when people are stoked about hand sanitizer. I of course am one of those people.

This one is fragrance free, with Aloe Vera and Shea Butter to help hydrate your skin, and 75% ethanol alcohol to kill 99.9% of bacteria. What I really love is that it is a spray, which makes it easy to use on the go and even something I can put onto objects in a pinch. It also is non sticky!!!!

I end up using two spritz per hand to get them covered, but I really like how easy having a spray is to use. I don't find it burns my hands, I also find that my hands don't dry out too much when using it and it smells unscented but nice.

TimeWise Replenishing Serum C+E / $58

This is an update on the TimeWise Replenishing Serum C, it now has vitamin E in it as well as C. It is alight serum that contains anti-oxidants that help fight oxidative stress. 

It light on the skin and absorbs quickly. It even shows a dosage line on it so you know how many uses you've used as well as how many you have left, which is fantastic.

Micellar Water / $20

Who doesn't love a good Micellar water? Mary Kay's eye makeup remover is one of the best around so for them to add a Micellar to their lineup just makes sense. I find it does a fantastic job removing my makeup while not agitating my skin. I have been using the reusable rounds with it and have found the results really great.

Illuminea Extrait de Parfum / $70

This is Mary Kay's latest luxury perfume, with 20% concentration of fragrance oils it is their longest lasting fragrance. Extrait De Parfum in case you were wondering is the strongest concentration of perfume oils out there, even stronger than eau de parfum, so it is pretty long lasting.

It's top notes are Mandarin, Quince, Pink Pepper and Morning Dew. Middle notes are Red Apricot, Orange Blossom, Scarlet Peony, Water Lotus and Honeysuckle. Finally the bottom notes are Florentine Iris Absolute, Violet Leaves, Cashmere Woods, Vanilla and White Moss. Overall it is a complex and well rounded scent that is floral and warm all at the same time.

Illuminea Body Soufflé (Limited Edition)/ $30

This cream features the same gorgeous scent as the Extrait d Parfum. It is cream has shea butter in it and has whipped in texture so it isn't heavy but does a great job of moisturizing the skin.
So there you go, some new products for the winter from Mary Kay. I am really enjoying all of it but think the hand wash, reusable pads and micellar water are the true standouts to me. I really also love the hand sanitizer.
