The Red Jar Transformation

This post is sponsored by Olay.

After using Olay Regenerist religiously for over a year as my only moisturizer day and night, it is a true honor to write this post and share this product with you.

I not only want to share my love for the Olay brand, but share more about the moisturizer that has transformed my skin, plumped it, and hydrated it. The results have made my friends, strangers, and my aesthetician ask what I’ve been using ever since I started.

For over eight years I’ve been getting light monthly chemical peels which have also helped with my face. Imagine – I’m eight years older and I still think my skin looks better than it ever has.

Within that time in the last year since I’ve been using Olay’s Regenerist (the red jar) I not only have seen or felt the difference in the way my skin looks, but so has my aesthetician.  She doesn’t tiptoe around how my skin is doing – she’ll tell me when my skin is looking congested, dry, and if I used a bad product I’ve introduced to my routine so I can immediately toss it.

Since using Olay Regenerist, my skin looks hydrated and I have less congested pores. I want to share the magic I’ve seen from the red jar and explain which version of the red jar moisturizer might be best for your preferences and needs.

I used to think I didn’t need to moisturize because I had oily skin as a teen, and I just had too much oil production on my face, and I have gone years without moisturizer. Then I started to see fine lines and I thought this shouldn’t be happening at my age – it was truly lack of hydration! Cleansing can strip good skin oils. Dry skin is less elastic and can lead to quicker development of fine lines and wrinkles, and Phoenix climate is so dry so I realized I really did need a moisturizer and this has changed my skin.

I have become such a fan of Olay Regenerist that I introduced my friends to it because sharing is caring. They became obsessed with it so much that last Christmas, it was brought as a gift exchange by Sommer and all of us fought for it!

Now if that isn’t a true testimony on how it works, I’m not sure what is.

Which red jar might be best for you?

Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer is a light, breathable moisturizer that leaves a matte finish. It works well for normal, oily and combination skin. If you have an on-the-go urban lifestyle and need your makeup to stay put all day, try Olay Regenerist Whip.  Your skin is ready for makeup immediately. It is very lightweight there is a SPF option and a fragrance-free option.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Face Moisturizer is a rich, nourishing moisturizer. It works well for dry and normal skin if you want to feel richly moisturized. If you work long hours in dry, air-conditioned offices and need a moisturizer to work hard all day, try Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. It softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles and visibly firms skin with plumping hydration. There is also a fragrance-free option.

I use both red jars!  I use Olay Regenerist Whip for a day cream I love how lightweight it is. I use Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream as a night cream.

I personally love Whips because it’s lightweight, but I would also be fine using the Micro-Sculpting Cream in winter but really, I will use either if I can get my hands on it, the hydration is magical.

I will use any red jar, really – I love what it does for my skin – hydrating it and making my skin look better than it has ever looked before. I can’t get enough, I’m a lifer. If I could buy everyone a red jar I would!

One of my best friend’s mom is 65 and looks amazing and when I ask her for her secret she’s always told me Olay and now I completely understand.

A medispa employee recently asked me what my skincare routine was – (I don’t get Botox done) so there’s none of that in my face and I just said, Olay. By her reaction I could tell she was impressed! Perhaps I piqued her curiosity! And I hope I piqued yours, go out and grab a red jar and just try it – you will fall in love with your skin.
