  • Well, it does seep in (your skin is highly absorbent, no matter WHAT you put on it, which is why you should care what you are putting on it). I'm guessing it just doesn't work as claimed which is something else entirely.

  • First off, ANYTHING you put on your skin is going to be absorbed deeper than the top layer of skin. However, chances are, most of the "wrinkle stoppers" you are using are little more than a placebo... I've worked with a number of cosmetic lines, and if you read through the ingredients on the majority of the bottles there are more damage causing ingredients than there are actual wrinkle treatments. Your best bet to fight wrinkles - Drink lots of water, Eat well (heavy fats & sugars or low vitamins in your diet will cause wrinkles), stay out of the sun, and use natural products on your skin (over exposure to chemicals in cleansers, cosmetics and creams will AGE skin).

  • www.cosmeticsdatabase.com

    Go to that website and search the Mary Kay products that you are using (or the brand in general) and it will list the ingredients and toxic levels........

  • I have been using it for years. I don't see a problem. I definately notice a difference if I haven't used it in a while.
