The Mary Kay TimeWise Plus event was held at Café de Jardin (Beach Road, beside Hairloom) where we had a lovely evening learning all about the new products and at the same time have tummy filling moments, special hand-pampering spa for everyone of us, and not forgetting... swatching away Mary Kay's makeup. Lolx~



Give skin a second chance to act like it did when it was younger.

Introducing Mary Kay New TimeWise Plus Regena-Firm Serum and Eye Cream

Sophisticated biotechnology. Unprecedented innovation.

September, Singapore – With the power of plant stem cells and other advanced ingredients, TimeWise® Plus+™ Regena-Firm™ skin care is the latest scientifically innovative skin care from Mary Kay, developed to minimize advanced signs of aging and help skin recapture its youthfulness. As the result of years of extensive investigation into the science of how and why skin ages, a team of scientists at the Mary Kay Research Center identified a complex of ingredients designed to help renew skin’s youthful appearance and help bring back its resilience and vibrancy.
At the heart of the TimeWise® Plus+™ Regena-Firm™ is the Regena-Firm™ Complex, a perfect union of three ingredients so vital to skin recovery it’s in every product.



Lifted Look. Firmer skin for younger "V" you!

Before introducing the products, the speakers mentioned about the importance of Stem Cells.

So, what are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are the building blocks of your skin. They have a unique ability to replace damaged and diseased cells. As they divide, they can proliferate for long periods into millions of new skin cells. Stem cells are responsible for constant renewal (regeneration) of your skin, and for healing wounds.
Epidermal stem cells are responsible for everyday regeneration of the different layers of the epidermis. These stem cells are found in the basal layer of the epidermis.
As we age, our stem cells lose their potency. Your skin's ability to repair itself just isn't what it used to be. The result can be fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin. [Reference from HERE, HERE & HERE]
To read detailed information about stem cells, click HERE. (It is worth a read! If you are not bored with all the scientific terms that is. ^^)

That says for how important stem cells are to us, to our organs, to our hair follicles, to our skin and every other parts of our body. You may have realised there are more & more skincare products in the market this year that promotes the use of stem cells, especially plant stem cells. Stem cells are this years' HOT topic! ^o^/

So why use plant stem cells?
There is one third type of stem cell – plant stem cells, which have increasingly been of interest to the beauty industry. Like human skin, plants contain stem cells that are located at their apical and root meristem. Plant stem cells are found in those regions of the plant where growth takes place. Plant stem cell extracts have already an anti-wrinkle effect on human skin. Plant stem cell extracts likely contain natural growth factors that will be of interest in future cosmetic developments, an interest that is being confirmed by preliminary clinical results from various sources, and by cosmetic companies integrating these ingredients into their products.
To read detailed information about Plant Stem Cells, click HERE.

And with the explanation of Stem Cells, we now know why Mary Kay TimeWise Plus Regena-Firm contained Plant Stem Cells besides the 2 other ingredients - Peptide and Hyaluronic Acid (commonly found in most anti-aging products)


The Regena-Firm™ Complex contains:
1. Plant Stem Cells that help protect the integrity of the skin matrix, the source of skin firmness¹.
2. Tripeptide-1, biomimetic peptide that helps support processes critical for skin repair¹.
3. Hyaluronic acid boosters¹ that help provide youthful skin volume and lift.
¹ Based on invitro testing of key ingredients.


Mary Kay TimeWise Plus Regena-Firm Product Introduction
Next speaker did a introduction on the products which she is currently using and swear by.
She's an Independent Sales Director whom I met before at my workplace months ago for a skincare makeup workshop that she conducted (with the help of my liaising of cos, lolx~) and I heard that the participants in the class were very happy with the workshop and wanted more sessions after that. ^^
The way she said how these products benefit her, I so wanted to give them a try already!! (≧◡≦)
