Hooked on Mary Kay®

Are you aware of the cosmetics and beauty brand Mary Kay®? No, then let House of Coco enlighten you.

Mary Kay® was launched in 1963 by Mary Kay Ash, an American who left her male dominated industry and opened her very own feminine focused business, in cosmetics and skincare.

For those who have never heard of Mary Kay®, the simple way for us at House of Coco to explain it, aside from the brand having some of the best skincare on the planet, is that it is a similar concept to what we are familiar with here in the UK, Avon Cosmetics.

Since 1963 Mary Kay® has employed a staggering global independent sales force of over 3 million women to promote and sell Mary Kay products. And nowadays, the brand has wholesale sales worldwide of $3 billion, and Mary Kay® products are sold in more than 35 markets worldwide!

So, if you didn’t know about Mary Kay® before today, then we’re pleased to say that you do now! Here are some of the brands latest releases in the UK.


The House of Coco beauty team favourites are all from the Mary Kay® Botanicals Effects range and include Cleansing Gel, Refreshing Toner, Moisturizing Gel, Moisturizing Lotion, and Invigorating scrub. All these products are infused with enriching antioxidant-packed Dragon Fruit and Aloe Extracts.

Botanicals Effects Cleansing Gel is both oil and fragrance free, non-comedogenic, and is suitable for sensitive skin, as is the full range. The naturally derived ingredients from coconuts deeply cleanse the skin and effectively dissolves all traces of oil. The soft formula does not strip the skin, leaving the face feeling nourished and clean. Priced at £14 for 127g.


Cleansing Gel

Botanicals Effects Refreshing Toner tightens the appearance of pores while removing excess oil and dirt. Dulling dead skin cells are removed for a complete clean, leaving a clearer and brighter complexion. This toner along with all the Botanical Effects collection are dermatologist-tested. Priced at £13 for 147ml.


Refreshing Toner

Botanicals Effects Moisturizing Gel is a soft, cooling and lightweight gel formula, which provides optimal moisturisation for all skin types. Skin quickly absorbs the gel leaving no greasy residue, yet leaves skin feeling moisturised for 12 hours. It helps to satisfy your skin’s thirst every day! Priced at £18 for 85g.


Moisturizing Gel

Botanicals Effects Moisurizing Lotion SPF30 is, like all the range clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy. Skin is given added protection from harmful UVA rays when using the Moisturising lotion with added SPF 30. This lightweight formula also offers 12 hours of moisturisation without leaving any heavy residue. The result is healthy, fresh and glowing skin. Priced at £16 for 50ml.


Moisturizing Lotion

Botanicals Effects Invigorating Scrub awakens tired looking skin. It contains natural ingredients derived from coconuts and apples, and the natural exfoliating fruit seeds unclog pores leaving a well-rested, radiant complexion. Priced at £15 for 88ml.
