Mary Kay giveaway

When Melanie first contacted me in regards to a Mary Kay review/giveaway my initial thought was, " Mary Kay? that's what moms use."

::blink blink::

i know, right?

so then i thought, "well i already have a skin care regiment..." which had me surveying my somewhat cluttered side of the bathroom sink & realizing that i totally don't. i basically use whatever. sale? sweet- i'll take it. i have a few things that i stick with, but then again, not really.

so what did i have to lose? nada.

i got a nice little package in the mail & i quickly de-cluttered my side of the sink. i'll be honest, i'm only about 1 week in so i can't say a whole lot. but i can't say anything bad either. skin can be a funny thing & i think changing up your regiment can sometimes throw things out of whack- but so far so good.
i don't have uber sensitive skin- but it's sensitive enough that i have to keep thing spretty simple. wash. rinse. moisterize. done.
Melanie asked me what type of skin i have & then customized my order based on that info.
...that actually makes me feel a lot more grown up than going to target & buying whatever they have on clearance. but i'm easy to please.

& now it's your turn.

1. Melanie is offering a FREE Miracle Set ($90) to 1 winner:

MKTWMiracleSet

after you win you'll be able to contact Melanie & she'll determine the best set for your skin type. done!

TO ENTER: all you have to do is a leave a comment talling me 1 thing from the MK website that you think you'd use- or something that you have used in the past that you love.

me? i love the Mint Bliss Energizing Lotion. i saw it sitting on the counter at a friends house this summer & used it on my entire body once (not aware of what it actually was) & i was like, "whoa".

2. & for everyone else- you'll get 25% off any MK orders through Melanie simply by mentioning my blog in your comments: go HERE to order & when placing your order enter "lookatthebirds" in the comment box & that's it.

i know a lot of you may have your skin care down to a science & that's awesome, but if any of you are still trying to figure out the best match then this might be a winner.

this giveaway is open until Thurs 01.12 @ 11:59pm PST. i'll use random.org to select a winner on Friday morning.
good luck!

Ooh. I love the Satin Lips lip mask - it makes my lips feel so soft. I, too, could use some skincare that doesn't come from the clearance rack at Target, so anything would be awesome!

It's funny my Mom used to use Mary Kay so she'd buy my products there as well. I don't know why she stopped but I loved using their face wash and powder. I'd love to try this Miracle Set.

Wrinkles scare me. Almost as much as gray hairs.

Sweet Honey Mead said...

I've never used any Mary Kay products, but that Energizing Mint Lotion you mentioned sounds really intriguing, and I love mint! I've also been looking for a new night-time skin care routine that includes some anti-aging products, so the Miracle Set in normal to dry really appeals to me.

Susan said...

The Creme to powder foundation looks great!

Juani said...

I would be happy to try any of the products,seeing as I have absolutely no set skin regime at the moment,and Mary Kay isn't readily available in South Africa.

I'm pretty sure I've used the Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover; I was dancer...performer...uhh I was in a dance group from age 4-18 and we used lots of makeup for big performances. This is what we used to take it off.

But I would LOVE to be a grown up and try and figure out what my daily face regimen should be. :)

Mrs. Beeper said...

I have used satin hands and loved it!

Baby Mama said...

I am into any product called "timewise." I need some serious skin care help!

*Mandy* said...

I would love to use the soothing eye gel. At 30 weeks pregnant and having a two year old at home I am going to need something to refresh tired eyes when this baby comes.

Leah said...

Pretty much any makeup - I have none and need to do the adult thing and start wearing it daily!

*mckenzie* said...

Ohhhhh! I'd love the mint lotion or the lip mask or the ultimate mascara. :)

Great giveaway!
