Review: Mary Kay Botanical Effects




2017 promises a “Super Fresh” start for all of us. I would gladly say that I have started the year with a clean face and fresh start as I started using Mary Kay’s newest skincare product line: Botanical Effects Evolution earlier this month. I'm really glad that I made the switch from my old facial cleanser.

Honestly, I've always wanted to start my skin care routine since last year but I'm one those lazy girls who are just contented with makeup remover and facial cleanser. But, Mary Kay's Botanical Effects facial wash and moisturizer changed my views and upgraded my skin care regimens.

Before, I just usually wash my face in the morning and at night before going to bed. But, there are some instances that I do wash my face as I arrived home from work or from event and/or whatnot. AND THAT'S IT. Yes, I don't use any moisturizes, sunscreen or night creams to help my skin. But then again, I'm not getting any younger anymore and I should really start investing on good skincare. 

Let the reviews started!
DISCLAIMER: Products were given to me by Saladbox and Mary Kay cosmetics.
Nevertheless, ratings and reviews are all my honest opinion and observation based on personal experience.

First off with Saladbox! Their monthly subscription is worth Php 1,800 and all I can say is I'm getting high quality products for such price. I'm on my second box and what they have been sending me are all Mary Kay products which I know costs more than Php 1,800. So is it worth it? For me, HELL YES! They have really good products for your needs. They also deliver it on time. I did get my December and January boxes on time!

Second, the all-new Botanical Effects Evolution. The January box of Saladbox has 2 full size products of Mary Kay Botanical Effects Evolution: Cleansing Gel and Moisturizing Gel.All products from the line are infused with Dragon Fruit and Aloe extracts which are great antioxidants. As for my experience, I do guarantee a fresh effect on the skin. Both the moisturizer and cleansing gel come in very nice packaging which are refreshingly simple, uncomplicated, and easy-to-use. What I noticed after 2-3 weeks of using these products everyday, my skin feels softer and I did not experience any breakout while using it. I also love the citrus scent because it gives the extra freshness that I look for from products.

I have a sensitive skin and I do get breakouts whenever I try different products on my skin. But this one is an exception. When I read the label and there's the word "non-comedogenic, I feel so assured that these products will leave no harm on my skin. If I'd rate these products, I'd give them a 9.5 out of 10! 

Lastly, every subscriber will receive a full size product of Mary Kay Brow Definer Pencil which I super love! It is easy to blend and easy to use. It's like a gel brow pomade but comes in pencil form. Yes, that's how good this product is. But on the sad end, it doesn't have any spooly or brush to blend it. As for my rating, I'd give it an 8 out of 10.


It is a great deal for Saladbox to offer their customers products they can use in their busy lifestyles, a perfect way to start their day off right with skincare products that keep things simple.
