MK Men Focus Group-Just Provide Beer

The difference between Men's and Women's skin is first and foremost physiological. It begins at puberty when both girls and boys are experiencing hormonal activities. Add to that the distinct lifestyle patterns and the daily rigors of male grooming habits-like shaving-and you have skin that differs from woman. Mary Kay Skincare Company has developed a line of targeted skincare products to combat and help prevent the signs of aging specifically for a man's skin. I work mostly with woman and wanted to get a guys opinion of this skincare line before I started recommending it to the woman I serve for their husbands and boyfriends. There was nothing scientific about my little focus group. I called and texted my friends and female customers and told them to bribe there men with beer to get them hear. The guys were surprisingly willing! Men care about their skin too!

MK Men Face Bar and MKMen Moisturizer with SPF 25

The facial cleansing bar is a sleek looking grey and white marble with MK etched upon. The bar cleanses, exfoliates (removes dead skin) and freshens skin leaving it smooth and healthy. The MK Men Cleansing bar when used with the moisturizer with sunscreen helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plus, restores the look of younger skin. It also leaves the skin smooth and soft. My informal review panel was made up of my husband, a clients boyfriend and a neighbors 21 year old son. Each guy was really impressed with the look of the cleansing bar and how nice the lather was, they also noted the the face bar was fragrance free which they liked. The moisturizer had a light clean scent and the guys liked that it did not have a strong sunscreen odor. Each agree they would use the entire line for 1 month. I instructed each of them to first cleanse their face and then if they were going to shave use the MKMen shave foam the MKMen after shave cooling gel and finally the MKMen moistuizer. Each of these brave men brought a long their razors and agreed to give the MKMen Shave Foam and After Shave Gel a test drive!

I'm Sexy and I Know it!!

The MK Men shave foam creates a comfort zone between the razor and your skin, allowing for a clean, close shave. Did you know that using warm-to-hot water to wash the face immdiately before shaving opens the hair follicle and causes the hair to swell, which makes shaving easier? I instructed the guys to try it before applying the foam. MK men shave foam contains Aloe leaf juice, cucumber extract and Lanolin, in fact the guys in my focus group really loved the scent of the foam. They were sold before they even tried it. Brian commented "it is freshy fresh and not cologney! I like that" This foam creates a comfort zone between the razor and the skin allowing for a close clean shave, it softens the skin and beard for a smooth shave. Glycerin and Lanolin gently soften the skin and the enriched formula surrounds and clings to each whisker to help reduce razor irritation. Between sips of beer the men quickly shaved off the 2 day beard I made them grow for my focus group. Each guys face looked bright and clean. Their skin was super soft!

MKMen after shave gel helps to shield against razor burn irritation, sooth cool and refresh the skin. Aloe Leaf Juice and Alantoin are the ingredients which calm, soothe and improve the appearance of a man's skin. I instructed each man to apply the gel in an upward and outward motion. The next day my girlfriend called me to tell me her husband did not have to shave the next morning and his skin still felt really soft. He commented that he enjoyed bringing home his bag of goodies and admitted that he had been using his wife's Mary Kay creamy cleanser and moisturizer for the past week! Now he had his own!

Before each guy left I gave them a quick spray with the MKMen body spray. It is not a cologne but a fresh clean spray wonderful for after a workout or to freshen up before a meeting! My own husband uses it when he is coming straight from the job-site to school events for my son. So often he doesn't have time to run home for a shower and this product does the trick!

Cleansing skin, protection from the sun and environmental pollution and anti-aging products are important for the look, feel and health of everyone's skin. MKMen provides a complete line just for men of all ages. The line is smart, sensible and affordable. I now feel happy to recommend the products to my customers!
