Mary Kay

Skin care was one of my most frequently asked questions before i started wearing makeup. I received a lot compliments on my skin at the age of 21 and above alhamdulillah. I was glowing and really happy about it. But until few years later, i started to experience skin problems. Here is my story on how i went from glowing skin to problematic skin, and now in the phase of recovery.

About 7 years ago i started wearing Tabita after hearing it from a close friend. Before this product went viral (negatively) everyone was praising it because of the whitening effect it gave to the skin. But i wasn't aiming for that. I was in Australia at that time and was experiencing acne problem. I had to splurge on Mac Cosmetics to cover my flaws. Being a student abroad especially in Brisbane there were many gatherings and social events that i had to attend. So my acne really affected my self-confidence.

Tabita caught my attention when one of my friends mentioned about her relative's skin stop producing acne after using it. That was what i rooted for. Alhamdulillah it did help improve my skin acne. The whitening and glowing effect was a bonus.

Fast forward to 2018 and above, my skin started to show the opposite results. During this period of time, I wore Tabita on and off. And tried experiencing different skin care. But when i wasn't wearing it, my skin became dull and acne started showing. Somehow my skin was getting worse when MCO began. I know that my skin was aging seeing that dark spots starting to become visible. I was never a makeup lover until i desperately need to wear it. So at the end of 2018, i started learning makeup to cover my acne.

My husband always wants me to be natural. But when we have gathering with friends, i can't help but feeling down about myself. I'm sure you all can relate to this emotion.

Last month i decided to try Mary Kay products. Honestly i'm really happy with my skin moisture. But i still have a long way to go before i can share the results and experience. But my point here is if you are still using products such as Tabita, it's time to call it off. I can truly understand now how women who was once my age felt and why they were so scared about skin aging.

My only goal right now is to have a healthy skin and age beautifully 🤪 Well lets hope that we can all achieve this goal at the age of 40 and above. Amin.

I'll update more soon inshaAllah. For those of you who wants to try MK, you can contact my friend on instagram (@hannashah_).
