My Mary Kay Botanical Effects 3-in-1 Cleanser Review

Hello Candylovers! :D 

There's no amount of makeup that can make your skin look healthy. You can't conceal all those bumps/acne with just the use of makeup. You have to know what's your skin type is and what type of facial cleanser that suits your skin. This is the first step of knowing on how to take care of your skin. :)

or you can take this test and find out what your skin is telling you. :)
And my score is 4 (skin is feeling okay).

After taking the test, I tried using the Mary Kay Botanical Effects 3-in-1 Cleanser for Oily Skin. :)

Mary Kay has 2 nourishing botanicals that benefit all skin types. The Silymarin (Milk Thistle) and Luo Han Guo (also called the longevity fruit) are powerful antioxidant sources that help defent against environmental damage while helping to promote healthy, balanced skin. 

There are 3 available formulas for different skin types.

1. Dry - Enrich dry skin with: 
Flaxeed extract (Flaxseed) - a rich source of fatty acids .
Sea Kelp extract (Sea Kelp) - important for moisturization .

2. Normal - Keep normal skin in balance with:
Frangipani Flower extract (Frangipani Flower) - helps protect against environmental stressors.
Water Lilly extract (Water Lilly) - important for healthy skin.

3. Oily - Contol oily skin with:
Kanuka extract (White Tea Tree) -kanuka is known for purifying benefits.
Guava extract (Guava) - a known source of salicylic acid.

- I like that their box is made from 100% post-consumer recycled content. 
- It makes the "botanical" feel very effective.
- The design packaging is simple but very classy. 
- It has the complete information needed n the product.
- They also provide different languages for their customer to understand their product.

- It comes in a white plastic squeezable tube with plastic flip top cap.
- They also printed the exact information provided on the box. 
- The texture of the plastic tube is matte.
- I like the design packaging. Simple yet classy.

- The actual color is clear with micro beads in it.

- It has a mild scent. (more like organic scent)

I've been using Mary Kay products when I was in my College years, especially their full coverage liquid foundation. I know for a fact that Mary Kay has an amazing range of good quality products and there's no doubt about it. But little do I know that they also have skin care products. So getting the chance to try their Botanical Effects 3-in-1 Cleanser is an opportunity.

Having an oily-acne prone skin is a challenge for me. There is nothing I can do about it but to accept the fact that I really have to deal with my oiliness and acne every now and then. It's in my genes, my poor lifestyle. There's no one to blame but myself.

But there's always some remedies for you to achieve that soft, flawless skin. And I think one of them is the Mary Kay Botanical Effects 3-in-1 Cleanser. This facial cleanser helps control the oiliness of my skin without leaving it dry. It has a micro beads that can exfoliate your dead skin cells and can lighten your darkspots/blemishes. Also, it's very mild on my skin. 

I don't experience any allergies or rashes when I'm using this facial cleanser. It feels very clean and fresh. 
You can definitely use this for 3 months or so. You just need a little amount of product to entirely clean your face and neck. 

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the result and will continue to use it. :)
