Mary Kay cosmetics is not exactly thought of as the hippest company around. But hip doesn’t always mean best, or even particularly effective. We like to think of ourselves here at Womensblogtalk as equal opportunity critics. We can love something from Avon and hate something from Juice Beauty. It’s all the same to us. Quality is quality and if we’ve learned anything, we’ve learned that quality comes in all shapes, sizes, and packaging.
So, when we decided to look into the Mary Kay product line for something to review, we chose the popular and affordable Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream. This super thick and rich cream is designed for very dry skin or even just for the driest of dry patches. It can be used on your face or your body, wherever you need some extreme hydration. It helps moisturize the skin, and keep that moisture in where it’s needed to smooth and soften your skin.
The ingredient list for Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream is very simple and it’s all about emollients. Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Parrafin, Beeswax and other waxes, Glycerine, and Menthol. It’s similar to Vaseline, but more solid and firm from the waxes.
Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream is not really about wrinkles and anti-aging. Not directly anyway. If you’re skin is very dry, obviously hydration will help inhibit the formation of lines and wrinkles as you age. But more than that, it’s about hydrating and healing those extra dry areas. Lots of happy customers have left Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream reviews talking about how they use this around their eyes and on their lips. Lots of others mention elbows, heels, and the backs of hands.
Speaking of reviews, almost all of them are positive. It seems like everyone can find a good use for Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream:
- “I use this on my dry eczema patches and it heals them overnight.”
- “I only use this on my lips and eyes… My eye circles are gone and my lips are full and moisturized.”
- “This is the very best night cream for very dry skin.”

Where to Buy
You can buy Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream from a Mary Kay representative or online. The 2.1 ounce tube retails for $13. It sells for less on Amazon, though we’ve noticed some complaints about what was received was in a jar instead of a tube as pictured, so be aware that there may be something fishy about buying Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream at Amazon.
Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream is a great little tube to have around. I you’ve got extremely dry skin, this may become your regular night cream. More likely though, it’ll be something you use on your hands, lips, and dry patches anywhere when they come along. As long as you don’t expect anti-aging miracles from Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream and you can handle the scent, it should be a welcome addition to your beauty basket.
