Here’s a novel way for Mary Kay consultants to get rid of those old, expired products: put them all in a basket and raffle them off at a home show!
Here’s a story I received from one of our visitors:
On 4/18/10 I attended a Home & Garden Trade Show. There was a Mary Kay Booth set up by an Mk Rep, where she was raffling away a Mary Kay Basket. One of the team members of this Rep called me on 4/21/10 and turns out I was the winner of that
basket. I picked up my basket and When I got home I did that first thing a girl that just won make up would do start playing with it,well when I inspected the products I noticed one of the lotions was rancind, seperated and smelled really bad. I then got suspicious that these products are old and I called the the Mary Kay corporate head quarters 1-800 – Mary- Kay and explained my suspicion Emma the Customer Service Rep asked me for the 4 digit product code on each item and what we found was that half of the products were indeed expired. She explained to me that these products only had a shelf life of three years from the manufacture date and then they go bad. These are the results.
Mary Kay Affection LotionKF31 – 2006 MAY (expired 2009)
Shower GelKH05 – 2006 JUNE (expired 2009)
Private Spa Collection Embrace Harmony
Mist KM31 – 2006 August (expired 2009)
Lotion DC27 – 2003 March (expired 2006)
Creamy Cheek Color FT27 – 2004 October (expired 2007)
Downtown Dazzle Color Collection – HC10 – 2005 March (expired 2008)
The customer rep then told me that their Demonstrators are not supposed to give away or sell old products that are old that they need to be claimed as a lost and that MK rep needs to exchange them for fresh product for me. She asked me
for the information of the lady that raffled the basket away and found that she is a Director for the company. The customer service rep takes my information down and tells me she is going to call MK rep and have Mk Rep contact me. I get
a call back from the Mary Kay HQ and tells me they talked to the MK Rep who denies knowing me. The Mary Kay HQ Customer service tells me there is nothing they can do for me since they don’t control the Directors or any of their
I do feel that they should be held accountable and replace the products for me since their Director is representing and using the Mary Kay name and knowingly gave products that are old and expired and could be potential health risk.
And what about this whole god first, family second career third. She sure as heck wasn’t acting godly by giving away old products. And then to top it all of her Rep is still calling me to have a facial done.
That is funny! Dude you just left the most horrible impression on me and you still want me to give you the time of day.
So now all I have is a basket because the products were useless and had to be thrown away. LOL
