In my 30th birthday post, I mentioned the Jason Ester-C Skin Care line which had the best moisturizer I have ever tried. I remember my skin looking alive, and glowy, and pretty, and healthy, and smooth, and even-toned, AND post-acne hyperpigmentation went away so much faster when I was using it. Note that back then, I wasn’t using tretinoin yet. The line is already discontinued, although technically, it’s not. They reformulated and the moisturizer is just not the same anymore. After that, I switched moisturizers a lot in an attempt to find something that could give me the same effect….
I’ve already tried a lot of Olay moisturizers: Oil of Olay, Age Protect, Total Effects (Normal, Gentle, and Blemish-prone), Regenerist Superstructure SPF 30, Natural White Night Cream, and Natural White SPF 24. Age Protect is my favorite out of all of them. It’s straightforward and BS-free. I found it when I was looking for the now discontinued Olay Total Effects for Blemish-Prone Skin. When I found out the latter wasn’t available anymore, I looked for any other Olay moisturizer that has salicylic acid in the ingredients list. I almost didn’t buy it because I haven’t heard about it from anywhere….
