We’ve watched Sarah Jessica Parker grow up — from Little Orphan Annie to a widowed Carrie Bradshaw, she’s really lived. And you can’t live without earning a few badges, namely a few gray hairs and crow's feet. But she wears them with honor as she takes the realistic route to her golden years as a stage, TV and film star — and we’re here to take down her directions.
At 57, she has proudly let her gray grow out despite the uproar it ignited and — even under the heat of Hollywood’s spotlight — she does not rely on plastic surgery. “I know what I look like. I have no choice,” she said in an interview with Vogue in November. “What am I going to do about it? Stop aging? Disappear?”
Her thriving career keeps her in front of the camera, and looking as good as she does requires maintenance. There are a few products she uses to keep her skin glowing. She has sensitive skin and for many years she gushed about the Toleriane Ultra Sensitive Skin Face Moisturizer. Here are some more of her faves....
She’s not alone in her attachment to Ultra Face — Amazon shoppers caught wind of it and it has developed quite a following.
“I have mature sensitive skin and also have rosacea,” wrote a rave reviewer. “It’s been very hard for me to find a moisturizer that doesn’t exacerbate the problem. This was recommended by my dermatologist and it is awesome! Does not sting, have a smell and doesn’t make my eyes water!”
But Parker has recently expanded her collection of creams to include a few notable RoC Skincare products. She teamed up with the company on a set of products that she swears by, but you can get the items separately at Amazon. And, not surprisingly, they’re pretty popular among Amazon shoppers — they love giving glowing reviews for products that give them glowing skin!
The Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream uses hyaluronic acid to give the delicate skin around your eye a boost of hydration and to help fill in fine lines. The addition of peptides help firm your skin and the caffeine wakes it up. This formula has nearly 19,000 five-star reviews.
“I have been using this in conjunction with other Roc products for the past three weeks, unbeknownst to my boyfriend,” wrote a rave reviewer. “Last night he commented on how fresh and young my face looks compared to just a month ago. As he did not know I had changed anything, this is definitely proof that these products make a noticeable difference.”
Hydrate + Plump Serum Capsules blend hyaluronic acid with ingredients like jojoba seed oil, triglycerides and coconut oil to draw moisture to the surface of your skin for maximum pumping power. More than 9,000 rave reviewers have already harnessed that power.
“I'm 67, been using this for three years and love how it firms my skin, gives it a youthful firmness and glow and reduces fine lines,” reported a happy shopper. “It's not a facelift in a bottle, but is a natural way to younger-looking skin. Most people do not think I'm in my 60s. I've used many moisturizers, but this is my all-time favorite.”
Hydrate + Plump Moisturizer with SPF 30 is a fast-absorbing, water-gel formula designed to hydrate and improve elasticity of your skin while protecting it from harmful UVA/UVB rays. More than 8,000 five-star fans can attest to its ability to plump and protect.
“Grabbed this to use as a sunscreen, and after a few days, threw my other products away,” reported a satisfied customer. “This is now the only facial product I use. It evens out my skin tone somehow and makes the red go away. There's a very subtle shimmer in it that lets me get away without wearing foundation or a tinted moisturizer most days. When I do wear more makeup, this works fine underneath. And my skin is much, much less sensitive. I only wish I'd found it years ago!”
