Has anyone tried this??? I just got the acne gel for spot treatment and a gift size of the satin hands set and I love them both. I've heard good things about their microdermabrasion stuff, but I wanted to know what you guys think? I wanted to try the origins modern friction but I read a review by paula begaon (paula's choice) on her website, and she said it was horrible b/c it has a lot of irritating ingredients in it. So now that's in my head, and I can't try it now
. One more question, there are 2 steps to mk's. i was wondering if i havvvveeee to get the second step??? it's a lot of money for both parts. Sorry about the length, I can't get to the point.

Sorry about the length, I can't get to the point. i personally haven't tried it yet but i know people who have (my mk lady and my best friend) who swear by it... i'm willing to bet that it's as great as people say it is because i love a mask that i used to get from mk that completely cleared my skin overnight... the only other one that i like equaly as well as a stila cleanser that has beads (crushed marble i think she said) in it...

I personally have not tried any microdermabrasion products, but I work at Walgreens and have seen many people purchase the Neutrogena MD kit. I think it's around $20. Neutrogena should have a satisfaction guarantee (on the side of the box). If not I would say go to Walgreens b/c if you ask before you buy (to be sure) that should be one of the products that you can return if not satisfied.

I'd love to hear what you think about either of them. I don't know much about MD. I use to sell Mary Kay prior to the MD kit. It was probably about 6 years ago.

Check the reviews, though I didn't see one for Neutrogena.

I've tried all the masks and I love Mary Kay's skin care, but since TimeWise came out, that's my fave. It's a 3 in 1 (cleanser) so it includes the mask. I haven't purchased it in quite some time b/c of my living situation. Disrespectful "roomies" *my brother* but now that you mention MK's facial products, I'm going to call my MK rep tomorrow. I can hear my skin screaming for it!!
If you haven't tried it I highly recommend it. There are two types dependent on your skin type. I'll be writing my review within the next week or so. Once I start using it again, I can be reminded by more than just ever so pleasant memories.

Hope this helps!

I saw a good bit of Mary Kay for sale yesterday on e-Bay and I was surprised at the low prices. I almost ordered this mattifier type product but decided against it since I've already got a car full of products to return that do not work. Check out e-Bay and see if you can get for less.

Hi new here, I in fact have tried MK's set as well as L'Oreals set with a vibrating head deal. I loved MK's! One reason is because I have a pierced nose and by using my own fingers I was able to really get in the nose creases as well as take care around my jewelry. Secondly, and this answers one of your other questions, I loved the serum you put on afterwards. My face felt incredible. You really do want to use that afterwards. Ebay is the best place to get the set for such a fraction of the actual price. And so worth it.

I got a sample of this and I wasn't really that impressed,my skin didn't look any different than if i used a normal scrub but I have only used it once so I should try a couple more times to really know.

I dont see why you have to use the serum,you could use your own favourite products afterwards. I dont know why these companies cant just sell the scrub on its own.

Sorry about the length, I can't get to the point. It depends on the individual consultant. Most consultants are taught never to break a set and sell products individually, where others will. If you order through an MK rep ask her if she will sell individually, if she doesn't and its not to much trouble find another and ask. You can find a consultant at their website under "Consultant Locator" just type in your zip code.

you can always try MK's and the company offers a 100% money back guarantee on all products, so if you don't like it you can always get your money back or other products from the company. The only thing is that if you buy from one consultant you would have to return it to the same consultant to get you money/products back. HTH!

I sell Mary Kay, and I would never refuse selling a product to my customer unless I knew it would hurt their skin or something. I personally am crazy about microdermabrasion, and the 2nd step is what sets them apart from all of the other microdermabrasions out there. It has a patented restorative quality that is key to completing the process. Also, the luminescent property of the serum is gorgeous and reflects the light to enhance your new glow. I only need to use it about once a week and it lasts for about 36 uses. That's nine months of product! What I generally do when a customer is hesitant to purchase a product due to price is to offer an "introductory" discount of some kind.

I must say it is nice to hear good things about MK. We haven't been around 44 yrs for nothing. MK spends millions of dollars each year on improving their skin care line, and believe me you all ain't seen nothing yet. I love the microderm. As for Step 2, personally my face just feels better after I use it. It feels like it calms my skin down after scrubbing it and when I don't use it my face is red for awhile afterwards, but I guess you wouldn't have to use it if you didn't want to.

Be sure to check out the new Nourishine Lip Glosses. They are awsome.

I'm sorry to be a downer on this thread, but I figured I should give my input. The MK microdermabrasion set TOTALLY irritated my face. The side I used it on became puffy and irritated where I'd used the products. This was when I was considering joining MK and the reps didn't believe me when I said it irritated my skin...this was in the testing stages, too! I can use other scrubs no problem, though, even the Philosophy Microdelivery Peel.
