Mary Kay Time Wise Day Solutionwith Sunscreen SPF 25As spring has arrived, I notice more and more friends searching the back of their cars or the bottom of the diaper bags for sunscreen.  As a skin cancer survivor (getting ready to celebrate my 11th anniversary) I sunscreen myself and my children all year long.  Of course I never wanted to put most sunscreen products on my face so I needed a moisturizer for my face that included at least a SPF 25.  I tried a product by Avon called ANEW Alternative that also had an SPF 25.  I liked the way it felt going on but but it kept burning my eyes and left me tearing for half the day.  I kept trying to get it further and further away from my eyes until I realized I was no longer getting the sunscreen coverage I wanted.I moved on to the Mary Kay line.  I like Mary Kay products in general and had used and loved Mary Kay moisturizer for years but the Day Solution was new to me.  I liked the way it felt going on, never greasy or sticky.  It didn't burn my eyes.  It protected my face through those first sunny days this year on the tennis court.  I've found a winner!I was disappointed at first that it comes in just a one ounce bottle but I found that the pump action helps me to bring out the minimal amount needed so none is wasted. One thing I didn't like was that the heft of the bottle masked how much was left and I ran out quite suddenly so you'll want to figure out how long it last you to be sure that you don't run out.  For me, the bottle of Mary Kay Time Wise Day Solution lasted exactly 3 months.  At times I still need my regular Mary Kay moisturizer if I've had long exposure to the fireside or the countryside but on many days the Mary Kay Day Solution is all I need and I love not having to think about or be without a sunscreen on my face.  ***My Viewpoint:*** I welcome the wisdom and wrinkles of age but I don't want to bring on extra wrinkles from sun damage or increase my risk of recurrent skin cancer.  I use Mary Kay Time Wise Day Solution with Sunscreen 25 SPF daily and I like it.

My sister is a rep, so I gave it a shot. Was not impressed. It had a nice feel to it but didn't see any noticeable change in winkles. I used one bottle that should of been long enough to see some thing. So many of the Mary Kay products have a funny smell to them . I used to rolling eye stick. It was for winkles and dark circles. It was not good at all. stunk so bad and felt so sticky.

Absorption
Did absorb well, but didn't see any change in skin tone or winkles.

Doesn't Clog Pores
I did not have any break outs . I have this was a good thing for my sensitive skin so Most products that are not a natural blend break my face out so bad. I use Dove soap and a natural herbal lotion , so I was surprised that this did not break my face out. I still would not buy it again. I have stayed away from Mary Kay. I bought around 5 other products at the same time. They all where for different part of the body and some make up. Don't really care for any of it.

Effectiveness
Did not find any effectiveness with this Mary Kay product. I would not be buying it again. The good thing is you can return it. How ever I did not due to it being my sister selling it to me. Don't really care for any of the Mary Kay products. this was the first and the last time I will buy .

    Comments about Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25:

    I got a phone call from a friend asking me to attend a Mary Kay party she was holding for another friend. I accepted the invitation even though I was not anxious to attend. The friend did a good job, but I have a whole drawer full of make up that I use for a week and then forget about. I felt obligated to buy something, so I went with what I thought I might actually use and would helpful. That led me to buy the Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF. I have been faithfully using it for the last few weeks and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. It is easy to apply and you don't need to use that much of it to cover my face. It goes on nice and smoothly and doesn't feel greasy at all. The timing is right because my son started baseball, so I've been outside at his practices and games. It's nice to know that I have sunscreen on my face all day and don't need to worry as much about being out in the sun.

    One of the other things that I like about this product is that there is no noticeable fragrance. I don't like to have a fragrance on something that I put on my face, and this meets that requirement. It's also nice that this is very light and something that is easy to wear under make-up. According to the information in the ingredients section, there are lots of antioxidants that are good for the skin. I really can't vouch for that or that those are doing anything, but I guess time will tell if I see any kind of difference in my skin. I also am not sure what I will do when we get to the summer and I'm really out in the sun for a long time. I think this is great for everyday, but I'm not sure if it's good for swimming or other sports activities. I guess once we get to the summer I will have to see if this provides me with enough protection or if I will feel that I need to use a different sunscreen during the day. At this point I probably use a different sunscreen during the day due to the price of this product.

    Great for sensitive skin

    Comments about Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25:

    I have two colors, white and burnt to a crisp. My face, being much more sensitive skin, always needs sunscreen. Generally I don't like to smear heavy greasy sunscreen on my face due to the probability of clogged pores and breakouts. Yet if I do not go with some sort of protection on my face I will end up with burnt skin, and the damage that entails.

    With melanoma running in the family, and my probability to burn, I was looking for a light weight sunscreen that I could use when I went out for normal every day activities, like walking my kids to and from school.

    It has a low SPF so if you are out for a long extended period of time, you definitely want something with more protection, but for a casual walk, this Sunscreen is perfect. It doesn't clog pores and it offers more protection than not using anything. It is very easy to apply.

    The only thing I do not like is the price, since I use it practically every day of the year.

    amazing product

    By 

    from St. Paul, MN

    Comments about Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25:

    I am absolutely in love with Mary Kay TimeWise Day solution, as well as Mary Kay timwise night solution! They work the best when both used, in fact the night solution I almost love more because I can put it on before I go to bed and I know in the morning after I sleep my face is going to look wonderful when I wake up!

    Absorption
    I always apply my TimeWise day solution when I wake up first thing in the morning, and after I wash my face and before I put on my makeup for the day. It absorbs well enough to not effect that I can put my make up on with ease without the lotion solution effecting it or making it look streaky.

    Doesn't Clog Pores
    One of the main reasons I love this solution Is that it doesn't clog my pores at all. My pores get clogged and I get blackheads really easily and with this solution I almost feel likes it improves the look of my pores because it makes the rest of my skin look so good, smoothing it out and making it look even, fresh, soft and smooth!

    2 in 1

    Comments about Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25:

    Love how it is a 2 in 1 and how it makes your skin feel. It seems like a smaller bottle to some but you gotta take into consideration that this is a product that goes a very long way!

    Absorption
    I was actually surprised when u pump it into your fingers and start rubbing it in your face and realize how it only takes alittle to go so far, but it absorbs into your skin so nicely.

    Effectiveness
    It works incredibly good not just for me but for all of my friends.

    Mary Kay Day Solution : Makes Makeup Go On Easier

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25:

    After using Mary Kay's TimeWise Day Solution for several years, I still didn't know quite how much I loved it until I ran out. In the days before my new bottle arrived, I noticed that my foundation didn't go on nearly as well (or look nearly as good) without the Day Solution.

    The MK Day Solution works best if you put it on after your moisturizer and before your foundation. I am not sure why, but using this before your foundation makes the makeup go on so much smoother and it gives it a much more finished look. The age-fighting properties are great too of course!

    This does contain an SPF of 25, which is nice for those who need it and would like to avoid putting on yet another layer on their face. However, I actually wish that they made one without it, since it's not something that I want or need to use every single day.

    All in all, I think this a good product that can make your skin and makeup look better!

    The BEST moisturizer/sunscreen I have ever tried!

    By 

    from Royse City, TX

    Comments about Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25:

    Love, love, love this product.

    Absorption
    I really do not like most moisturizers containing sunscreen because they are heavy & greasy. NOT this one! It absorbs very quickly, simply leaving my skin soft.

    Doesn't Clog Pores
    I have quite oily, acne-prone skin and this has never made me break out. In fact, I would say my breakouts are less often since using it.

    Effectiveness
    Works well.

    It gives me a glow!

    By 

    from Berlin, NJ

    Comments about Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25:

    Marykay timewise day solution with SPF15 is a great product.  It gives you a glow, especially in the summer with a tan!  I don't feel odd at all with just smoothing it all over my face and neck and going out for the day without makeup!  Yes, I said withou makeup!  Not only are you protected from the UV rays but you have a glow to your face also.   I feel my face becomes tighter and poors become less visible, it's almost like I have a tone face without exercising!  I would love to use it on my legs!!  It helps you enhance your natural look, and lets face it, men prefer the natural look to the caked on makeup look!  He can touch your face with out having a nasty clay feeling on his hands!  I would recommend this product to teenagers through sixty year old women!  Just because it's timewise it doesn't mean you have to be older to use.  Teenagers could benefit and look good at the same time.  I love it and will use it through out my life!

    Great Fine Line Reducer

    By 

    from Eubank, KY

    Comments about Mary Kay TimeWise Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25:

    I really like the Mary Kay Time-Wise Day Solution. I have been using this product since it became available. When I saw this new updated Day Solution, I immediately bought it to see if it worked as well as the original. It does! I know this because I have people tell me all the time that I look much younger than my fifty-one years of age.

    I like the smell of this product too, it smells just like sunscreen, which to me is pleasant reminding me of summer and vacations. In fact, it include SPF 25 in the solution.

    The bottle is easy to use with a pump action top. I like how it comes out in a drop at a time, because a little bit of this product goes a long way. In fact, I only use a drop on my forehead, a drop on each cheek, and a drop on my neck.

    It has helped me reduce my fine lines and wrinkles and makes my skin feel smoother and my tone more even. It feels light on my skin and I do not notice it. I use it after I have cleansed my skin and before I put on moisturizer. 

    If you are like me, looking to find a product that helps keep your skin looking young, you have found the right product.
