The Mary Kay Timewise Even Complexion Essence according to the packaging is designed to “visibly correct skin’s imperfections, reduce the appearance of dark spots, freckles and uneven skin tone.”
Update: 29 December 2007
Throughout the summer I used this skin care product to avoid uneven and blotchy skin, sometimes I get uneven skintone on the left side of my forehead. You can use the Mary Kay Timewise Complexion Essence under a moisturiser in the day time or under your moisturiser at night after you have cleansed or washed your face.
Initially, my skin was flaking very badly and I was using it only at night time. Once the flaking had subsided, I started to use it in the day time under my moisturiser.
This product evens out your skin tone, so if you have discolouration or uneven or two-toned skin, this product will help to smooth your skin, even out your complexion and make it more radiant. It is not a skin bleaching or skin whitening product.
How do you apply the Mary Kay Timewise Even Complexion Essence?
- Cleanse your skin
- Use a Toner
- Apply Even Complexion Essence
- Apply your normal moisturiser (I have oily skin so I use the Mary Kay Oil Control Lotion over it or I just use the Even Complexion Essence by itself)
In the summertime, I was using it with the oil control lotion and then applying foundation and powder over it, only once the flaking had stopped, of course.
My skin did not react in the sun, I was using the Even Complexion Essence both morning and night, once the initial flaking had stopped.
