    Default Mary Kay

    I few months ago I got talked into selling Mary Kay products. I am now wondering if Mary Kay a bad product to use. Does anyone have information about Mary Kay makeup and cleansers?

    I am using the products but I really don't want to. I want to use a small amount of foundation and maybe a lip gloss. Any suggestions of natural products or options? The Mary Kay moisturizer is okay but I want to use olive oil as a moisturizer instead.

    I really need some help in this area. I don't want to spend money on a product if it is dangerous for my skin.

    Thanks!

    There are a lot of reviews out there on the products. https://www.google.com/search?q=mary...ient=firefox-a Personally, it makes my face itch. It seems a lot of other people love it.

    If you are uncomfortable using and selling the products then quit.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    Not that familiar with it............just know that I tried it years ago and couldn't use it.

    I returned the products I purchased.

    Don't know anyone that sells it.

    Every time I every tried Mary Kay my face was red, itchy and full of hives. However lots of stuff does that to me. I now use Treskin products and coconut oil.

    I sold Mary Kay at one point but left very shortly after because one of the events I went to they talked about not want women who were ugly or disabled to sell there product. I was so outraged that I walked out.

    I love their products but am not a fan of their mlm structure.

    I think that the reputation that they have tends to overshadow how good their cosmetics actually are. I once did a comparison of their foundation and Laura Merciers silk creme foundation and they were identical in shade texture and wear. I like their classic basic skincare over their Timewise line (which is what they push).

    What you'll probably find with mary kay is an oversaturated market and them pushing you to buy more "inventory"

    EL companies did NOT test on animals until they entered the market in China (along with MK) where animal testing is mandatory.
