Honest Review on Mary Kay Timewise Skincare Range

Presenting the Mary Kay Timewise Range
Hey guys! I apologize for being MIA lately and honestly speaking, I've been pretty stressed out juggling work, commitments and planning out a wedding. Yes guys, im getting married! But anyways, with that in mind, I decided to switch up my regular skincare routine and tried out the Mary Kay Timewise skincare range for a change. I've seen a lot of good reviews on this particular range, and couldn't resist but to try this out with the date of the wedding getting super near. Thus, in today's blog post, I'll be sharing with you a review on the Mary Kay Timewise Skincare Range after using it for about a month now.

So, getting into details, the range features 5 products to complete the range which includes, a cleanser, toner, eye cream, day cream sunscreen, and night cream. I love the idea that the range is pretty much minimal targeting on what is necessary cause I honestly can't go for the K-beauty 12 step skincare regime as it takes too much of my time. LOL. So, now you know what the products are, let's get into the details of each product, and I promise I'll try to keep it short and sweet for you guys to easily understand thoughts on the products.


Age Minimizer 3D 4-in-1 Cleanser
Suitable for Normal to Dry Skin, Dermatologist tested, frangrance free and non comedogenic
Starting off with the cleanser, it states to be suitable for normal to dry skin that claims to multitask on your skin's needs. Now, this was a concern for me in the beginning as I actually have combination oily skin, but surprisingly, my skin loved it! The cleanser is unlike your common cleanser as it doesn't foam up as much, but as I wash my face daily with this, I realize that it does not only cleanse but also lightly exfoliates to remove impurities from the skin. In terms of results, I'd have to say that I started to see that my skin condition improved (especially my breakout scars), giving me a well-balanced skin condition.

Tecture: creamy with orange micro beads

Not as foamy, but imagine sleansing with the slightest exfoliation
In terms of texture, again I highlight that it doesnt foam up as much, but it definitely had a unique creamy sticky texture that lightly glides onto the surface the skin, gently cleansing the skin without drying up my skin. After cleansing, skin actually feels clean and what I liked about it was that it did not tighten my skin like some cleansers would. Despite giving my skin a good cleanse, it still felt well moisturized and had an after cleansing glow.


Timewise Moisturising Renewing Softener
I like to apply my toners on a cotton pad before application
Just spread it around your face like so
The Timewise Moisturising Renewing Softener is somewhat like a toner to me, but instead of drying out on the skin, I noticed that it softens the skin after cleansing. This is suitable for Dry to Oily Skin, including sensitive skin, and is recommended to be used after cleansing. My impression on this was that it's very gentle on the skin, and it leaves the skin feeling super soft and smooth. Like any toner, the texture for this is watery, but what makes this stands out from the rest would be that after application, it feels as if your skin has already been applied toner and moisturizer. The best feeling in the world! I'll leave this here for you to think about it.


Age Minimizer 3D Eye Cream
Ophthamologist and dematologist tested, and non comedogenic
Has a tiny outlet for easy direct application
I like to use my ring finger to gently spread out the cream around the eyes
Of course, when it comes to aging, you start worrying when you see the area around your eyes showing wrinkles. The Age Minimizer 3D Eye Cream does not only prevent wrinkles but also minimizes your current wrinkles if that is your concern. I haven't been sleeping property the past few weeks and surprisingly, with this baby, I have not experienced any dark circles around my eyes which I believe that the eye cream does what its suppose to do. Upon application, you'd realize that its creamy in texture and as you apply it around your under eye area, it immediately moisturizes your eye area effortlessly preventing fine lines and wrinkles from forming.


Age Minimizer 3D Day Cream SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
Dermatologist tested, oil and fragrance free and non-comedogenic
Texture: Creamy with a tone up kind of texture
The good thing is idoesn'tnt leave white patches after you evenly spread it out
Next would be the Age Minimizer 3D Day Cream SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen. As we all know, sunscreen is one of the most important things in the world if you'd like to prevent wrinkles to invade your face. I never really enjoyed the regular sunscreen unless its water based, but this has to be the only exception as I actually love the feel of it on my skin after application. Its lightweight, and it doesn't leave white patches on your skin. What makes it even better is that other than protecting your skin from UV rays, it also reduces visible signs of aging and moisturizes your skin too! Major love! Since it leaves your skin in a mattified setting, its great to apply makeup after applying this sunscreen on your skin. What more can you ask for?


Age Minimizer 3D Night Cream
Texture: Very rich and creamy
I use this at night on a regular basis, and I love waking up to my skin each morning
And as my night regime, instead of applying sunscreen, I'll switch it to the Age Minimizer 3D Night Cream. This particular night cream is pretty moisturizing and it may feel a little heavy on the skin, but the good side of it is that you'll wake up every morning with your skin looking like its glowing. I noticed that with this, it really speeds up the age minimizing process making me look 2 years younger. I've been applying this every night for a month now, and trust me when I say that my skin looks and feels so much healthier.


Overall thoughts? Definitely will repurchase!
As a verdict, I honestly didn't think that this skincare range would be suitable as most anti-aging skincare ranges would usually be too moisturizing for my skin. But with Mary Kay timewise Skincare Range is beyond my expectations, and with the results that it gave to my skin, I'd recommend this to anyone who would want to achieve smoother, younger and healthier skin. I'd also like to emphasize that are well tested by dermatologist (and an ophthalmologist, for eye cream), to ensure that its safe to be used on the skin. I have no regrets on switching to this with my big day getting nearer so I can assure you that this skincare is safe and would give you amazing results within 1 month of usage.

MAHA Agriculture Attractions | MADA

It was an exciting weekend for me as i explored what the locals favourite, the MAHA expo had to offer over the weekend. Its still not to late to checkout the MAHA expo yourself as it offers agricultural products by local agricultural entrepreneurs! This was my first time being present at such an event, and honestly speaking i really enjoyed myself (minus the crowd of course). So if you hate the crowd too, be sure to make you plans ahead and be early to enjoy a breezy morning at MAHA expo 2018.

Today i'll be focusing on agriculture which travelled all the way from Kedah to present 'Pulau Pisang' which happens to be a village located in the Kubang Pasu district in Kedah Darul Aman. Whats even better was that i got to see a glimps of the 'Kampung Pisang' surrounding as the MAHA expo presented an exclusive setting of the village in the expo itself. The Kampung Pulau Pisang is famous for its authentic malay architecture, unique to Kedah, offering a beautiful paddy field landscape when you consider taking their homestay packages. Other than that, you may also consider joining and experiencing how to harvest the paddy fields into rice.

The minute i walked into the proclaimed 'Pulau Pisang', i noticed a crowd rushing over to Ulu Sendaka which happens to be a local favourite stall in Kedah itself for savoury classic delights. I managed to try two local nostalgic dishes and it was so good! Something i've never tried before but im glad i managed to get a taste of Kedah. At the booth, you may also find yourself exploring agroart and DIY activities for visitors of the expo to experience the Kedah lifestyle.

Not to forget there was also a health and beauty section that focuses on beauty in a traditionally Malay style, under the Wakah Mahsuri where they offered a variety of beauty products that are natrually made with natural ingredients such as rice, honey, propolis, herbs and jewel of borneo. Theres testers so dont be shy to try the testers for a hands on feel.

While youre there, dont forget to hop on a buggy and make your way to the actually paddy fields in MAEPS. The paddy field is super green while i was there, with actual scarecrows and a museum for you to personally explore on how we have benefited from the paddy fields, elaborating on how the industry grew to further educate visitors on Paddy Fields. In this section, you will also be able to see how rice grains are processed with the actual machinery and if youre in luck, you might be able to bring some rice grains back home too! 

So what are you waiting for? Dont forget to make your way this weekend! The MAHA 2018 will be running till 2nd December 2018. More deets by heading to their official facebook page.
