Jazz Lord-Kershaw spent thousands of dollars trying to get her skin back to normal after the birth of her second child.
The 46-year-old mother of two from Sydney has always valued fair skin and the natural confidence that comes with it.
But a few weeks after baby number two was born, everything changed.
She told FEMAIL that “dark spots” had started to appear on the surface of her skin.
“I’ve always had freckles, but this pigmentation was different and I really struggled with it,” she said.

She Tried Thousands of Dollars’ worth of Creams – Before Finding a Miracle Product
“One day I looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize my own face. I looked much older and I knew I had to do something about it.
Jazz, who works in warehouse logistics, spent hours on YouTube following all the dermatologists and buying products with the active ingredients they recommended – but was always disappointed.
“I was so tired of buying over-the-counter products that didn’t work,” she said.
“I felt like I was spending all my free time trying to figure out what to buy next at Mecca, Woolworths, Sephora.
“But in the end, I was spending a lot of money and filling my cupboard with creams that didn’t do anything.”
Two years after having her second baby, Jazz’s confidence was at an all-time low: her lack of sleep wasn’t helping her mental health or her appearance.
Jazz felt like he was ten years older when his pigmentation came to the surface.
Fed up, she decided she had two options – hgo to a dermatologist and pay a lot of money for him to permanently banish severe pigmentation; or try prescription skincare products that are also traditionally quite expensive.
Eight months ago, she decided to opt for Moshy Skincare, the women’s version of the famous Moshi brand.
And since then, she has never looked back.
“I completed the online questionnaire and spoke to the doctor about my concerns and they sent me my cream,” she said.
The $120 bottle of night cream lasts three months for most people, but Jazz admits she sometimes gets four months or more, making it the most affordable thing she’s ever tried.
She said nothing she tried worked
“I panicked at first because my skin was peeling a lot – like it was falling off – much more than with any other product,” she said.
“But when I finished, I was left with the softest, most beautiful skin. And it only peeled once.
“The pigmentation is gone and my skin is better than it has ever been.
“My skin cleared up in three weeks. I couldn’t believe the difference.”
Jazz said it was a relief to go from six or seven products a night to “just one.”
“During the day, I just use a gentle moisturizer and before I put on my night cream, I use a gentle cleanser and that’s it,” she said.
Now she feels confident and becomes herself again
“I don’t need mountains of products, which also makes it easier to check out.”
She was also able to get rid of the makeup she had purchased to cover the pigmentation.
Jazz is moving to Queensland soon with his family and will look for work once there.
She thinks she’ll be much more confident in interviews now than she was two years ago, when she was trying to lighten her complexion.
“My self-confidence was shaken – especially working with people 20 years younger than me – when I felt like I looked 10 years older than I should have,” she said. she declared.
