I think I found an adequate solution for SPF for summer. In the meantime, I’m getting closer to a good formula myself. My suggestion:

Olay Complete for Sensitive Skin + a few drops of jojoba oil

I know this sounds off the cuff, but believe me, I’ve tried just about everything and this is the best solution I’ve come across in the past several years. Try it and I think you’ll agree. If you do try it, let me know what you think.

A bunch of people are asking about the AHA so here’s a quick update:

The labels are printed so it’s just a matter of getting them applied to the tubes. This requires sending them out and takes 2 and a half weeks. Then we’ll send the labeled tubes to get filled. Filling can take a while too because our filler are sticklers for quality every step of the way. But the ball is most definitely rolling. Believe me, I want this as much as anybody. I’m running out of my sample! I’ve learned never to promise a date, but I’m working on it as quickly as I can.

I put my benzoyl peroxide in the fridge and have been using it chilled lately. I like it a lot. We know that ice/cold reduces inflammation, so it certainly can’t hurt. I am uncertain, but I have a feeling it doesn’t help too much either. My skin warms up the BP in only a matter of seconds really. Regardless, I think I’ll continue using the BP this way. It’s been hot around here lately and a nice cool application of BP feels good. I almost look forward to it. I’d love to get more comments on this method if you’ve tried it.
