Product Review - MARK Skincare

Hi Y'all!!! I attended a "virtual" MARK party hosted by the fabulous Linda, back in July. I think Linda should host another one, it was like a little online party with games and chatting with my girls :). The same fabulous Linda who hustles Pretty Pink Boxes every month. Linda is a busy person!!!!
After the "virtual" party I decided to give their skincare line a shot since the Calming Effect Cleanser samples that I received in previous pretty pink boxes Worked a "miracle" on my heat annoying heat rash that I had on my face.. I ordered $25 skincare items and received the Calm Yourself Mask for FREE!!!


  Calming Effect Comforting Milk Cleanser- 6.7oz  $7
 A gentle soap free cleanser that removes makeup and dirt while comforting and replenishing skins moisture. "Super Ingredients" include oat & banana.


For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizer- 1.7 Fl oz $15
 Lightweight, oil free moisturizer that shields skin from the UVA & UVB rays and environmental pollutants.  Key ingredients are dark chocolate, blueberry extract, lemon fruit and Canadian Willowherb extract that contain powerful antioxidants that protect skin from free radicals. SPF 30 protects skin from sun exposure to keep skin looking younger longer.
The moisturizer has a cool cap button thing that pumps out the right amount of product!!



 Go With The Grain
Exfoliating Beads 0.65oz - $9
 It contains Adzuki Bean, Corn Cob Powder & Rice Bran which helps with uneven skintone.
The best part is you just mix a little (a little goes a long way) with your cleanser. Also the exfoliating beads fit right on top of any MARK cleanser.

 Calm Yourself Hydrating Mask 3.4 FL OZ $7
A feel good mask that hydrates and rejuvenates parched, tired looking skin. Contains green tea  cucumber extracts, lemon, and orange extracts.
The bottle says to use 2-3 times a week, but I FAIL! I always forget to use it... Maybe I should schedule a reminder on my Blackberry :)


The MARK site also has a skincare quiz that you can take to see which products would be best for you and it was 100% accurate for me. I was wary about the the low prices of the items but figured to give them a try. I'm so glad I did.  I love this line.  I would defiantly purchase again.
.
PROS
None of the products irritated my sensitive skin 
Calming Effect Milk Cleanser is gentle on the skin. Has a nice "clean/fresh" light smell.
 For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizer - has a pleasant smell it contains SPF 30 and you can smell the SPF, doesn't bother me, makes me feel summery & beachy. 
CONS
Calming Effect Milk Cleanser -doesn't clean up my globs of waterproof mascara & eye liner, but it's not a big deal. I use my Target Brand Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover (which is the same ingredient wise as Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup remover.
For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizer - Jar is light and the perfect amount comes out when pressed but when I got down to the last pump I didn't know!!!  EMERGENCY 911!!! There's no way to know when your running low, even if you open it.. Maybe if you take out the inner middle plastic part and judge it by it's "weight".....   I know now that using it twice daily will last me about 2 months.          
Calm Yourself Hydrating Mask- I forget to use it so that's my fault :)


I give MARK'S Skincare Line: ♥

I really liked the Matte Chance Mattifying Lotion from them. But it had too much alcohol in it for me. But yeah that pump thing is cool! LOL! But I hear you on the life span thing. I had to bust mine open to get the remaining out. But I'm glad you found affordable skincare that works for you! :)

And isn't Linda the BOMB?! She's a busy bee for sure! :)

Great post! I think I may have to give these a go.
I also tried the samples and loved the products.

I LOVE this lotion, it's my go to lotion for the cooler months. I've noticed that it makes me quite greasy in the warmer months.

You know my favorite skincare line is Bliss, but Biore comes in a close second.

Sher said...
