I received samples (skincare & makeup) as a prize through  a contest from a friend & Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant Shawanna Bryant.   I am reviewing three Mary Kay ® Botanical Effects® Formula 2 skincare samples.
Step 1

I applied this on my skin after waking up. After using it my face felt much cleaner.  I have sensitive skin, but I didn’t have any allergic reaction.

Step 2

I applied the mask immediately after the cleanser. After two minutes, the mask started form on my face. After rinsing it off, my face appeared lighter & my nose wasn’t as oily. It is one of the areas I tend to break out the most.
Mary Kay ® Botanical Effects® Fresh Towelette (Normal Skin)

Last step, I wiped my face with the towelette.  It was refreshing and brought some moisture back after I applied the mask.

Overall, I was impressed with this line. I have tried a lot of skincare & with different results. What I like is that each product has a special formula catered to your skin type (normal, dry or oily).  The one drawback I found is the smell.  Although, I suffer from allergies the lack of scent wasn’t my favorite. Other than that I didn’t find any other problems.   It has been days since I used the samples I can report that no allergic reaction occurred.
