|On the current skincare routine|
Upon following a full skincare routine for the past three weeks, it really comes to show how the skin would be able to achieve the utmost care in hydration and brightness when the entire range of the collection is fully utilized.
You see, what I can see trending about skincare lately is that luminosity remains as one of the more concrete aspects that women search for and given the fact that clear, dewy and supple skin is all the rage now thanks to Korean beauty, it is no surprise that this factor is a focal point to achieving healthier, radiant and younger looking skin.
MARY KAY MelaCEP Plus+ Luminous System
|On the range|
I have heard about Mary Kay in the past, both on their winning skincare sets and products alongside with their makeup line which tastefully dons up the face to a beautiful yet natural finish. So when its latest launch which is the MelaCEP Plus+ Luminous System made its debut, I took a look at the regimen which in its description states translucency, brightness, purity, even-looking tone and hydration to improve the skin to a healthier state.
There are 5 products in the collection that completes the routine - a Foaming Cleanser, Freshener, Ultimate Serum, Ultimate Cream and Mask. All of the products within are non-inflammatory and gentle which is suitable for all types of skin-tone be it dry, normal, combination, oily or even sensitive skin.
The Aim of Mary Kay's MelaCEP Plus+ Luminous System
- Reduce the appearance of skin discoloration
- Reduce the appearance of dark spots
- Evens the skin tone
- Purify the skin alongside 24 hour moisture
MelaCEP Plus+ Foaming Cleanser
So with that in mind let's have a look at the first product which is the MelaCEP Plus+ Foaming Cleanser which retails at RM129 a bottle at 100ml.
The sensation is mild and gentle with this one and a small pea size in the palm is all you would need to thoroughly lather it with water and massage all over the face. The skin is left clean and fresh afterward with a refreshing scent to follow.
MelaCEP Plus+ Freshener
Next we have the Freshener which is a softening lotion that retails at RM129 for a 100ml bottle. The use of this is simple enough; which is best utilized during the morning and night right after using the cleanser. Simply moisten a cotton ball with it and apply the formulation evenly over the face and neck avoiding the eye area.
MelaCEP Plus+ Ultimate Serum
|The key product|
Following that up is the key item of this entire range, that is the Ultimate Serum which retails at RM350 for a 30ml bottle. More towards the premium side in terms of price, the results of this do not disappoint as this non oily product is fast absorbent with a brightening effect that leaves the skin with a smooth a supple feel.
Used twice daily, this whitening serum applies well with 1 pump over the face and neck and can even be used sparingly to clear and brighten highly pigmented areas.
MelaCEP Plus+ Ultimate Cream
|The Formulation Within|
This fourth product in the routine is a daily favorite of mine and is called the Ultimate Cream which retails at RM180 for a 30ml tub. Since I am up for anything that dishes out moisture, this product is perfect as it absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving much residue.
It also has 24 hour long moisture which is pleasantly surprising considering its cream texture is quite thick. It brings quite an effective glow after a week and its hydration effect gives the skin a very well rested look.
MelaCEP Plus+ Mask
|On the mask|
Ending the beauty regime with a mask, we have this one here at RM169 for an 85ml bottle. This one has no scent and has to be applied to clean and dry skin. A small drop size is used to cover both the face and neck and after you would need to leave it on for 15 minutes and rinse away with warm water. This is a very gentle mask that can be used up to 2-3 times a week to achieve and instant brightening and moisturizing effect.
Personally I find that the range did very well in serving the purpose on what it is suppose to do. I think it delivers well in terms of its apt description of the products and seeing that the collection had been specifically formulated for and tested on Asian Skin, you can rest assured that its development has been well structured to fit into the consideration of our humid and hot weather conditions as well.
|Skin after a full 3 weeks|
Overall I can see significant improvements on the face after long use and while radiance is indeed key, I like how the way my skin feels really soft and smooth right after usage.
