The Red Jar

How many times do you get to the skincare aisle at the store and completely forget what you were there to grab? Let’s face it, it is pretty overwhelming.

Here’s a funny story about that:

I have basically gotten every member in my family to use Olay products now. They LOVE OLAY! Well, my mom recently asked my dad to grab her some new Olay Daily Facials when he was at the store. She told him EXACTLY what they were called and what to look for. Somehow, he did not make it home with Olay. He had bought a completely different brand! My mom still tried them and they were horrible. They stripped her face of all of it’s natural oils and left her skin feeling SO DRY! She just doesn’t understand how my dad could have grabbed the wrong product.

I think we have all been there. We go in for something, get overwhelmed, and leave with who knows what! The same happens to me when looking for a moisturizer. How can I know which one is right for me? There are wayyyy too many to choose from! Read below and take a quiz to save time and see which Olay red jar you should pick up next time you are in the skincare aisle!

Everyone Needs to Moisturize

I really wish this had been drilled into my head when I was in my late teens/early 20s. I started using moisturizer wayyyy too late in life. If you are in the same boat or if you are still wondering why you need to moisturize, read below:

-When you cleanse your face, your cleanser can remove some of the natural, good oils on your face, resulting in over-drying.

-Without moisture, your skin is susceptible to dryness caused by the environment.

-Dry skin can lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. yuck!

There are A LOT of moisturizers in the skin care aisle. A LOT. How can you know which one is right for your skin? That is a question many of us have spent much of our lives on (and most of our money on!)

I have a solution for you that will save you so much time AND money.

Just follow this quiz below to find the Olay moisturizer that is right for you:

  1. What is your skin type?
  2. How do you like your skin to feel after applying your moisturizer?
  3. How does your skin change on a normal day?
  4. How patient are you in your morning skincare routine?
  5. How do you feel about primers?

Luckily, Olay has two amazing moisturizers and one of these is PERFECT for you!

Which Olay Regenerist Red Jar is Right for You?

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. This is my favorite Olay product to date. Well.. the daily facials are also amazing, and the Olay Sun, oh and the Olay body wash is soooo good, ok I could go on and on. I just really love this moisturizer.

Let’s see that quiz again:

  1. What is your skin type? If you said mostly dry or normal, the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is for you!
  2. How do you like your skin to feel after applying your moisturizer? Did you answer richly moisturized? Grab the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream!
  3. How does your skin change on a normal day? Does it start to feel dry and patched as the day goes on? The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream will fix that!
  4. How patient are you in your morning skincare routine? Get the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream if you don’t mind giving your moisturizer time to absorb. I like to brush my teeth during this time or pick out my outfit for the day.
  5. How do you feel about primers? Do you always use a primer before makeup? The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is stilllll perfect for you!

The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream will make your skin feel super nourished and hydrated. It also plumps up all of your fine lines and wrinkles- yes please!

If you tend to sit in a stuffy, dry, air-conditioned office all day then this product needs to be in your bathroom asap! You will love it. I can apply in the morning and hang out in my office all day and my face will still feel hydrated when I finally turn off my computer in the afternoon.

Olay Regenerist Whip

Olay Regenerist Whip. Whip is an amazing product and my mother’s favorite moisturizer! You would want Whip if you answered the questions like so:

  1. What is your skin type? If you said oily or combination, the Olay Regenerist Whip is for you!
  2. How do you like your skin to feel after applying your moisturizer? Did you answer light feel, like nothing is there then you should grab the Olay Regenerist Whip!
  3. How does your skin change on a normal day? It gets shinier and shinier. Whip will help you with that!
  4. How patient are you in your morning skincare routine? I have no time in the morning and need my moisturizer to absorb in a flash. Is that you? Whip absorbs super fast and leaves you with a smooth matte finish.
  5. How do you feel about primers? Did you answer like this- I am in too much of a rush for that extra step, but would totally be up for it if my moisturizer could prime for me? If so, look no further than Olay Regenerist Whip!

Olay Regenerist Whip also comes in a non-spf option, but I think you will love how light this moisturizer feels even with the sunscreen! Whip is great for the on-the-go gal or guy who wants a fast acting and absorbing moisturizer that will help their makeup stay on all day long.

Hopefully I just saved you SO MUCH TIME and so much confusion. Now, you can walk right up to the red jars in the skincare aisle at your nearest store and pick the Olay Regenerist red jar moisturizer that is perfect your skin!

    I want to try. I have bought day and night cream. I’m a smart and self sufficient woman. But those 2 little jars have me whipped because i cant get them open. This is a serious question. I have tried all types of Bobby pins, tweezers, letter opener and I had to quit after trying my switcblade. Doesn’t work but sure did a number on my knuckle. I’m stuck. Please tell me what to do. I will turn into a prune soon and out of desperation I will be forced to get the crowbar.
