Skin Care Sets: Timewise Repair Volu-Firm

Okay, so we are still talking about sets. Let's talk about the newest one. Timewise Repair Volu-Firm Set. This is the highest line of anti-age and anti-wrinkle in the Mary Kay line. This set is no joke. It launched in the early fall, this year. I've used this set over the last three months. I am younger than the recommended age, but I wanted to see how this product works for myself. Awesome is just not good enough. This set is made for those over 50 years of age, for those who have visible signs of aging or for those looking for the top of the line in skin care.

There are 5 products in this set. We've talked about 4 of them in earlier posts (see Cleansers, Day/Night Solutions and Eye product posts from earlier this month).

This is the second skin care set that has the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. This is a big deal. Mary Kay will stand behind this product. If it does not do everything they claim, you can get your money back. And if Mary Kay doesn't refund your money, then Good Housekeeping will. It's that good. Definitely worth a try. Ask yourself, what do you have to lose (other than wrinkles)?

Here are some of the benefits based on a 12 week study:

91% had less noticeable deep lines and wrinkles (NOTE--not FINE lines--DEEP ones)
86% said the skin look lifted
98% had less undereye puffiness (almost everyone)
93% said the skin looked more even toned
93% said they had a significant improvement in overall appearance

While using advanced wrinkle analyzer technology the following was found:

86% had a decrease in the appearance of average wrinkle length
81% had a decrease in the appearance of average wrinkle width

As a personal user, I can tell you for certain that the fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes are gone. I'm 38 years old and people still think I'm in my twenties. I also noticed the two deep lines in my forehead are fading. I can't be more pleased.

One thing I can tell you is that my skin does feel a bit more oily than when I use the regular Timewise Miracle Set. I have combination skin, anyway. Someone with dry skin my not notice as much. Also, older skin tends to be more dry. This set will help with that. I find that if I use the Microdermabrasion twice per week and the Classic Skin Care #3 Mask for oily skin twice per week, I keep the oiliness down to a minimum.

This set retails for $199, plus tax. So, this isn't cheap. It's the most expensive line in Mary Kay at the moment. If you look for comparable products with other companies, they start at $400. The discount lines that are less expensive than Mary Kay don't have all the benefits that the Timewise Repair line has. So, you are either missing benefits by buying something cheaper, or you are spending too much money by paying more. If you buy the products separately, you pay $36 more. So, it saves you money to buy the set.
