BEAUTY | Review : Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System

Assalamualaikum and hello.

I gotta say, skincare is one of the things in life that I take really good care of. Age is definitely a factor because as known, the mature we age, our skin will lose it's elasticity, radiance and glow. So it is a good (I mean MUST) thing to be discipline and go the extra mile to take care of the skin. I am not majorly concern about becoming fairer, but the most important for me is to have healthy, hydrated radiant, glowy and translucent skin. Is too much to ask? No, if you are able to find the right products for your skin.

Do you want to have diamond luminous skin? Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System is a complete skincare regime that could help you to achieve that brighter, radiant, glowing and hydrated skin with it's 3 main ingredients :

Targets melanin and diminish discolouration on the skin and is the perfect ingredient to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. Also  provide skin brightening protective effect.

♥ Algae Extract 
Targets melanin and reduce the appearance of discolouration on the skin

♥ Vegetable Amino Acid
Improve skin's brightness, improve skin tone evenness and reduce the visible contrasts of dark spots.

As you can see, these 3 main ingredients helps to even out skin tone and targets melanin production so the appearance of dark spots can be reduced. What are the other benefits that a user can gain by using all of the steps in this system? 

 Skin's luminosity and translucency is improved
♥ Brighter skin
♥ Skin will be more purified
♥ Even skin tone
♥ Improve, regain and maintain skin clarity
♥ Dramatically enhance skin's overall appearance

There are 5 products in the Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System range and they are consists of the Foaming Cleanser, Freshener, Ultimate Serum, Ultimate Cream and Mask. All 5 has these 3 main ingredients. But with a new formulation, there's a new additional ingredients in the Foaming Cleanser, Freshener,  Ultimate Cream and Mask which is Shiitake Mushroom Extract. Shiitake Mushroom has a specific enzyme that is know as a purification properties therefore it is very beneficial in a brightening skincare products. I have been using the whole skincare set for 2 weeks (as of the photos) but I am going into 3 weeks of usage already. Want to know what my thoughts are? Keep on reading! :)

  Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Foaming Cleanser  
Size/Weight/Volume  |  100ml
Price  |  RM129

I like the mild floral scent of this Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Foaming Cleanser, it's kind of soothing. The cleanser does foam up well, I usually squeeze a proper amount on my palm and mix it water, then massage it on my face. While massaging my face, I can sense that the cleanser is gentle on the skin and it is easy to rinse off. Do you know the feeling of cleansers that are slippery? I find that quite annoying to be honest. What I love about this cleanser that it does not give me that tight feeling or dryness after washing my face. My skin feels soft and bouncy, feeling fresh and clean!

  Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Freshener  
Size/Weight/Volume  |  100ml
Price  |  RM129

I never skip using a toner after cleanser because toner helps to balance up the pH level of my skin.  I also use toner because I believe in a way that it helps to close down my pores. I have large pores and it is annoying. I love that this Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Freshener give me the fresh feeling and mild cooling sensation. It absorbs pretty fast and does not leave my skin greasy or tacky.  

  Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Ultimate Serum  
Size/Weight/Volume  |  30ml
Price  |  RM350

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Ultimate Serum has an additional ingredient, which is the Hexylresorcinol that targets Glutathione and the dark pigmentation on the skin. As we grow older, Glutathione production in our body will decrease and with the additional environmental pollutants and stress, it is going down even further. Glutathione is important for skin's purification, to eliminate dark spots and to brightened up the skin. Therefore, adding this serum in our skincare regime is crucial as it helps to protect the skin from the formation of dark spots and pigmentation. I use 2 pumps at each application because I simply love the texture! Even though I use 2 pumps, the serum absorbs quickly into my skin, making my skin feels soft and supple. It is not greasy at all! 

  Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Ultimate Cream  
Size/Weight/Volume  |  30ml
Price  |  RM180

I love that it comes with a protective lid! 

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Ultimate Cream does not have SPF so you can use this as your day and night cream. I thought the texture is too rich due to the thick and creamy texture but guess what? The cream blends into the skin nicely and absorb pretty fast for such a thick-textured cream. I use a small amount during the day and double up the volume at night. It gives my skin such a soft and bouncy skin! The cream actually gives me sort of a protective film but it does not weigh me down. It keeps my skin well-moisturized and smooth at the same time.

  Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Mask  
Size/Weight/Volume  |  85g
Price  |  RM169

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Mask is a face mask that leaves the skin radiant and luminous after application. It's creamy texture makes it easy to apply all over the face. I let the face mask do it's magic for about 15 minutes on my face, then I will rinse it off with water. I like to massage my face when I am rinsing off the mask, extra step to have better blood circulation. Immediately I feel that my skin is soft and smooth! Somehow I feel this mask also has a protective film that is helping me to retain the moisture in my skin and protect my skin from skin culprits. 

After the usage the 5 products in 2 weeks, I can feel the difference in my skin texture. My skin has become softer and bouncier. I can see that my skin has become a bit more radiant because my cheeks somehow has this 'blush' effect. A bonus benefit that I can see that the appearance of pores has slightly reduced! The whole skincare set does not irritate me and it is safe to say that Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System is suitable for all skin care type. But if you have very sensitive skin, you might want to check with your dermatologist first. I always say that, it is not about having a fairer skin, it is about having brighter, radiant, translucent and healthy skin. I think all the 5 products works hand in hand for a better result, as in brighter, translucent, even skin tone and well-hydrated skin. But if you want to try something from the range, I would suggest for you to get the Ultimate Serum, Ultimate Cream or Mask. These 3 are my favourites as I believe they give more visible results.
