Beauty Review: BGP Tries mark Self Improvement Skin Brightening Kit

mark skin care faceMy New Year’s Resolution is to be more conscious of my skin and be sure to thoroughly clean, moisturize and prime my face after all of the makeup testing I do. With that in mind, I appreciate a skin care kit that comes with everything I need to pamper my skin: Enter the mark Self-Improvement Skin Brightening Kit. It comes with a Calming Effect Comforting Milk Cleanser, See Things Clearly Brightening Moisturizer and Mist Opportunity Multi-Tasking Refresher in scents like grapefruit, kiwi and banana.

The first obvious thing about this set is don’t buy it for the smell. While the fruity names sound appealing, there is nothing delicious about the smell of these skin care products. They smell like paste. It was a huge disappointment! Even though they didn’t smell great, I still had to give them a try.

I really like the Milk Cleanser. While it is a little too runny for my tastes, it makes my skin feel clean. After using it my face feels like I have a fresh palette for all of my fun makeup testing products.

The Moisturizer amazed me. The tub had a pump top so it pushed out as much as you need and you don’t have to scoop out the moisturizer getting it all over. It’s ingenious! The moisturizer is good for people with really dry skin. It leaves a bit of a film on your skin and I found some days I could feel it on me. On dry winter days, it was a life saver.

As for the Refresher, I really didn’t find much of a use for it. I like the idea of a spray to freshen my face, but it’s not something I would use before I leave the house. An ‘on the go’ travel size might be good to carry around, but I generally don’t need to freshen my face that often. It would have been nice if this spray had a really pretty fruity smell too to entice me to use it a bit more.

While the mark Self Improvement Skin Brightening Kit didn’t fulfill my skin care fantasies, it is a useful kit to get everything you could want in one place.
