This product feels like a thin layer of glue applied to my face. Also, I've been using it for 2-3 weeks now and I have begun to have breakouts which is not acceptable because I have VERY oily skin even at the age of 55 and have spent most of my life learning how to combat breakouts. Another reviewer suggested that it takes some time for your face to get used to having all those vitamins and peptides on your face. Horse hockey there are plenty of other moisturizers out there that will work great for oily skin without breaking your face out (Mary Kay's Timewise Age-Fighting Moisturizer for combination/oily skin, and Estee Lauder's Day Wear oil free cream are two good examples). Not only will I not be buying this product ever again, I am giving the rest of the bottle to a friend who has dry skin hoping she has better luck with it.
This might be my new HG. I am now in my late 30s. I have kept the fine lines at bay for several years, but in the past year have noticed some sagging in my cheeks, as well as the dreaded parenthesis lines around my mouth. In the two weeks I've been using this product, I've noticed fewer lines around my eyes, more firmness under the eyes, decreased facial labial lines (the parenthesis on either side of your mouth), and clearer skin. I haven't noticed in improvement in the melasma leftover from my pregnancy, but at two weeks it's still pretty early. Love this product, and will definitely repurchase. I'm using it in conjunction with the Timewise moisturizer for oily skin.
I love this product. I use the Timewise Miracle Set and I believe they work best together. As for the night solution I worked it on slowly. Any blemishes I have heal quickly when using this. I don't mean it clears it up but it heals faster because of the cell turnover. Love it!
Unfortunately, my skin does not seem to like his product. It does not want to absorb and feels sticky for a long time. I canīt see any difference on my face after using it. I like lots of other products by MK but this one was a waste of money for me.
This products has a ton of Vitamin A in it, and as you know, when starting any Vitamin A product, like Retin A, your skin, if not used to Vitamin A, will go through a period of break outs before it begins to clear up. This product is FULL OF VITAMINS AND ANTI-OXIDANTS AND PEPTIDES!!!! ) If you are new to Night Solution, I STRONGLY suggest using it only 2 times a week in this manner, by putting one pump into your moisturizer (Timewise) and mix it together on your finger tips and then apply it to your face. Do this for about 4 weeks. Then you can begin applying it more concentrated, like maybe 2 pumps of Night Solution in your mositurizer 3 or 4 times a week. I donít see the need to use it every night. Too much of anything is not good for the skin, so do not over do it. And you should know that only about 2 pumps of the Night Solution are needed once you are used to it. If you see some pimples forming, lay off the night solution for awhile. That's most likely where the pimples are coming from. You may not be 100% used to the vitamin content. And again, only 3 times a week is needed. I strongly suggest to mix it in your moisturizer first so it spreads all over your face better. If not, it tends to dry up too quick before you spread it on your face. Let your skin get used to these vitamins SLOWLY. Night Solution, however, does not have any salicylic acid nor glycolic acids (BHA and AHA) in it, so if you are very oily it won't do much to clean up your clogged pores so I strongly suggest using a salicylic acid soap and moisturizer at a 2% concentration. If you put too much of this product on your face and your skin is NOT used to having vitamin A put on it, your skin will burn. Just a warning! And I mean, BURN! You'll feel it, and forced to wash it off right away. The vitamin A in this is like the 8th ingredient, so itís pretty strong, almost like a Retinol, but not quite. I would STRONGLY suggest if you are new to Mary Kay (or good quality skin care by any line with tons of vitamins and anti-oxidants) you should start out slowly by only using the products maybe twice a week for two months. Then up it to 3 times a week for another two months to get your skin used to the products. Failure to ease into a quality skin care program (whether itís Mary Kay or something fancy from Macyís) will result in shocking your skin and you will develop pimples and irritation. Vitamins are good for the skin but you have to develop tolerance to them to get that pimple free and black head free look that models have in the magazines. If youíve only just begun using quality skin care (and again, by that I mean a skin line that uses a lot of vitamins, anti-oxidants, cell turn over exfoliants like Retinol) do not get upset when you begin if you get pimples and irritation. This is normal and even a dermatologist will tell you that starting Retin A will cause you to go through a period of pimples before things get better. However, I will say ignoring your moisture content of your skin can cause acne too. An example is if you use the Mary Kay Matte Wear Foundation or the Medium Coverage Foundation, those will suck the water (and oil) right out of your skin, and if you fail to put that water back in your skin (through steaming I prefer, buy yourself a steamer, than lock it in with a good moisturizer from Mary Kay) and continue using those foundations, that too can cause acne because youíre drying out your skin. Think of those foundations as clay masks, they have talc in them to absorb oil but they will take out water too. (Read my review on the Mary Kay foundations).
My mum gave me this, this summer to try out and I must say I can't live without it! And the bottle (travelling addition) she gave is still in use! That' almost 5 Months...
At first when you put it on it feels kind of weird. It feels like a film over your skin, a bit sticky. But that feeling goes away quickly! You can really feel how your skin is soaking up all the goodness and leaves a smooth surface. And in the morning I can see a differnence. My pimples are not as red as they where the night before and my pores not as visible.
I now what I want for Christmas from my mum ;)
I absolutely love the MK Timewise line and this product is no exception. From loving the little vitamin packed vials that are suspended in this patent pending potion, to the way it feels on your skin, I am a believer. My skin at 44, looks renewed, refreshed and feels more taut in the mornings after using this the night before. It adds to the wonder of the TW line with its beauty of packaging and effective skin smoothing properties. Love this stuff, and it is fragrance free, a Godsend for skin over 40.
I have combo/ oily skin and it makes me feel like I have a thin layer of glue on my face. Feels very taught and drying. I dont think this product does anything for me :(
This product didn't do anything to my skin. It goes on like clear gel and gets absorbed quickly. It looks pretty with its little beads in the glass bottle with a nice pump. And that's all there is to it. I threw it away half way through the bottle because it was not an effective night serum.
I have been using Mary Kay Night Solution since I was in college. I just love the way the product makes my skin feel, silky and smooth. This serum is packed full of powerful antioxidants and vitamins to fight fine lines and wrinkles. I am 34, and have not developed any fine lines, not even around my eye area. I feel the Night Solution is the reason for my youthful skin.
