Hi Folks! Today I have a review of a new Mary Kay launch, their TimeWise Vitamin C Activating Squares. This is an interesting product as it’s one of the first products to utilize pure vitamin C. With it, I have the Mary Kay TimeWise Tone Correcting Serum to test out too! I’ve been using this for about a month now, and definitely have an opinion on these!
Lets start with a bit of facts about the TimeWise Vitamin C Activating Squares. Apparently pure vitamin C loses it’s potency as it’s exposed to air, water or light. These squares come in individually packaged foil portions. In a pack you get 12 squares.
The square feels essentially like a thin piece of plastic (even though it’s not). The magic with this product begins when you add a couple of drops of water. I usually add 4 or 5 drops.
The square completely dissolves once the water is added (and you mix it together). After dissolved, time to add the serum. You’re not supposed to use the squares on their own and should be mixed in with a serum (I have been using the Mary Kay Tone Correcting Serum).
As per the suggestions, I always applied this at night (which works out perfectly for me). You should not mix the vitamin C squares with acne or SPF products. Also as per suggestion, I used this around 3 times a week.
Now to talk about results! After around a month of use, I did have a noticeable difference. This improved the texture of my skin A LOT. I couldn’t really test this for wrinkles or crows feet, but from how much I felt a difference in the texture of my skin, I wouldn’t be surprised that this would help. I’ve never felt my skin so smooth and even. This made for a better makeup application and just better general feeling to my skin. The serum was nice too. I have some hyper pigmentation and I didn’t notice a huge difference there, but I did notice redness went down slightly.
One thing to note is the price. This is $30 for a pack of Vitamin C squares (and the serum is $48). I’m torn because this did definitely produce results but $30 for only one month of use seems really expensive.
With all being considered I would recommend this product because it provides noticeable results. That is definitely a lot more than I can say for other products!
Thanks so much for reading! Have a great day!
