I am currently in my 30th week of pregnancy and am loving it! I do have some morning sickness still, but I know that it will be short-lived and we are excitedly awaiting our new arrival! Due to being sick and being a busy mommy I NEED some "me time" in my day. Do you all know what I am talking about? I need time to sit back, relax, take a nap or pamper myself. It doesn't happen very often but I do find that when the children are napping, that is my "me time". 
So, in honor of pampering myself I agreed to review this new Botanical Effects Skin Care Line from Mary Kay. The Botanical Effects Skin Care Line comes in formulas for three different skin types: Oily, Normal or Dry. Because my skin is so undecided as to what it wants to be right now, I chose to go with the Oily formula. 
Nap time rolled around recently and I decided to duck into the bathroom for a bit of pampering. :) The first thing that I used was "Cleanse" Botanical Effects, a facial cleanser. This is a cleansing gel that gently cleanses pores and purifies your skin...which is something that I desperately need in my beauty regimen. 

When I finished with the cleansing of my skin, I then chose "Freshen" Botanical Effects, which is a spray that is applied directly to a cotton ball and smoothed onto my face. This spray helps to minimize the appearance of pores, remove excess oil and clarify the skin without drying it out. 
Next, I wanted to see what the "Mask" Botanical Effects was like so I applied that to my skin. Honestly, I did not take a picture of me with the mask on, as I did not want to scare you all away!! This clay-based mask dries very quickly once applied and is meant to cleanse the skin of environmental impurities while controlling excess oil and refining your pores. I was really impressed with how soft my skin was once I removed the mask 10 minutes after applying it! Immediately after rinsing this mask off my skin, I applied the "Hydrate" Botanical Effects product, which is just like a lotion. It went on smooth and really REALLY made my face feel pampered. I am not a huge lotion user on my face, but I can see myself using this daily.

The other really great thing about the Mary Kay Botanical Effects Skin Care Line is that no matter which product you use, none of them contain synthetic dyes or fragrances. They are also hypo-allergenic beauty products, which is wonderful...especially for those of you who have sensitive skin!

Before I wrap this up, here is a quick introductory video from Mary Kay about this stunning new line!

I LOVE it!! I am so glad that Mary Kay has such a refreshing line of products for us! Prices vary per item within the Botanical Effects Skin Care Line so check out Mary Kay's website for complete listing of prices.
So, in my opinion...Mary Kay Botanical Effects Skin Care is a wonderful line of products! I loved how each of them felt on my skin and really refreshed me after using them. When it comes to caring for my skin, I want the very best and am so glad that Mary Kay has offered this new line. I definitely feel like I am giving my skin a spa treatment!!

Mary Kay has offered to give away a sampling of three Fresh Face Look products (winner's choice of line...any two eye colors and a mascara.). They would also like to give the winner Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colors in Sweet Cream and Emerald as well as a Lash Love Mascara. the value of these items is $28. Here are your entry options!
