I know this topic hasn't been visited much of late, but I wanted to add my 2 cents' worth anyhow. ;) I do LOVE Mary Kay products, especially the Satin Hands treatment. For the overly-exposed hands, digging around in every sort of soil I can get my grubby little paws in, MK's Satin Hands treatment keeps my little paws girlie-looking and soft. :)
Oh yes please do, you'll be so glad you did! It's surprisingly a quick little "do", but gives amazing results for how little time it takes. It used to be that you had to apply and massage in each step, one at a time; Apply step 1, massage it in. Apply step 2 on top of that, massage it in... etc. Now ya just apply steps 1, 2, and 3 all at the same time, massage and smoosh it around in your hands for a minute or 2 (add a few drops of water as necessary for added smooshiness), then rinse. Tah Dah! =)
Hmmmm, they have changed the kit since I last bought it (I used to be a consultant and have oooodles of stuff still left over).
Used to be that the kit contained:
Extra Emollient Night Cream (step 1)
Scrub (step 2)
Cleansing Gel (step 3)
Hand Cream (step 4)
One would smoosh steps 1-3 around all at once, rinse, then apply hand cream last.
Now, it would seem they have eliminated the "cleansing gel", so just use the "softener" and "scrub" together, massage it in for a minute or so, rinse well. Then use the hand cream last, like you would any other moisturizer. I hope this helps!
I only use organic and I don't like many I have found so I tend to create my own mixtures using simple reliable ingredients. The organic provider I really love right now is Morrocco Method but they only have an ayurvedic eyeliner right now. Hoping they will create more makeups...but I use their Euro Oil as a base under my foundation powder. It moisturizes without becoming too oily.
Ya know, lately I've actually just been using Cetaphil for washing my face, then plain ol Palmer's cocoa butter around my mouth and eyes (for those delicate-skin areas), and an SPF-50 sun block as a moisturizer all over my face and throat/neck/chest. Got started doing that late this Spring, since I'm outside so much at work and I've GOT to be smothered in sun block anyway... so why not just use it as a moisturizer all the time? It's been working for me just fine, and it's not expensive.

Here I go, being a whistle-blower again, but the above post, #9388836, breaks "rule" #5 and is against the User Conduct policy. This post has absolutely NOTHING to do with skin care (the topic of this thread), it is nothing more than an ADVERTISEMENT OF SERVICES, if not goods as well... even if thinly veiled.
I like Clinique. I am 46 years old, and have very oily skin. I like the 7 Day scrub cream, and they have come out with some good products for the maturing skin lately. Repairwear Laser Focus has made a dramatic change in my skin texture. Always wear sunscreen, and I like Elta MD. I am just amazed at how much longer it holds up than the over-the-counter kind of sunscreen. No fragrance and they have stuff specially for oily skin. I work at a garden center, so I'm outside almost all day. I have to throw in a pitch for Mary Kay satin hands too. Great stuff for all over. I use it on my legs when they start looking scaly in the winter. And for fingernails, I use a product by Elon, Lanolin-rich Nail Conditioner. Massage a tiny bit into each fingernail just before bed each night. Makes a world of difference in my nail growth and strength, as well as the cuticle softening. Just my two cents:)
I wonder how olive oil would work for nails/cuticles... that is something I always have tons of. It sure makes a difference on my straw-like hair.
Thank you, Happytail, for the tip about the sun block. I too work outdoors at a garden center and even through my SPF 50 sunblock am getting really brown... and I don't like it. I'll be looking for this one that you like! =)
I have tried olive oil on my hands, with a few drops of lavender oil or tea tree oil, but it doesn't do anything like the Elon cream. I keep my nails short, but I tend to bite and pick at my cuticles all the time. And between digging in the dirt at home and working in the dirt at the garden center, my poor hands just take a beating all the way around.
