Mary-Kay TimeWise Review


TimeWise is a product line from the world famous Mary Kay Inc. Mary Kay has been around for almost 50 years and has typically been sold by “independent Mary Kay Beauty Consultants”. Almost anyone can work from home as a distributor for Mary Kay so this brand used to be very well known and a direct competitor of Avon, another company that offers a similar arrangement for its distributors.

The TimeWise line is a comprehensive beauty line that claims to put a lot of emphasis on using anti-aging ingredients to help you stay looking younger, longer. The TimeWise line covers almost every category of skin, face, and lip products you can think of. There are moisturizers, creams, cleansers, sunscreens, soaps, and lip primers. There are around 30 distinct products available in the TimeWise line at the time of this review.

Product Details

Mary Kay TimeWise products claim to utilize a wide range of anti-aging ingredients but the official Mary Kay website doesn’t list the ingredients for any of their products. Instead, you may see a line in the product description that mentions anti-oxidants, peptides, moisturizers, and other common anti-aging ingredients. Most of the products talk about anti-oxidants a little bit and mention how they fight free radicals that could cause the skin to age prematurely.

To actually find out what is inside each individual TimeWise product, you will have to call a Mary Kay independent Beauty Consultant in your area and odds are there will be quite a few of them. The prices of the TimeWise products seem to be in the $10-$60 range depending on what the product is and what it claims to do. We don’t see any testimonials or return policies on the official website but a company such as this probably has at least a 30-day money back guarantee on its products.

The Good

  • Mary Kay is a well known name in the beauty industry.
  • Some of the TimeWise products contain anti-oxidants.

The Bad

  • The official website doesn’t list any ingredients for any of the TimeWise products.
  • There are no testimonials posted on the official website.
  • No return policy can be found on the official website.
  • You will need to call a consultant in your area to learn more about specific products.

The Bottom Line

Mary Kay used to be extremely popular and most people knew someone who sold Mary Kay products or had easy access to a catalog. In the past decade or so, Mary Kay seems to have dropped off the map in some areas but this doesn’t mean their products have declined in quality. It’s hard to get a good feel for the TimeWise line because there are no testimonials and we can’t find a full ingredients list for them.
