Jennifer Aniston’s beauty secret for “keeping wrinkles at bay”: Vaseline…?

Back in March, The Mail had a story about Jennifer Aniston shelling out thousands of dollars a month to maintain her beauty. According to the report, Aniston was all about the “best” in skin care, beauty treatments, massages, spas, makeup, etc. The Mail’s figure was $8000 a month – excessive, of course, but I didn’t think much of the report, figuring that Aniston probably did spend a lot of money taking care of herself, but it probably wasn’t $8,000 a month. A few weeks afterwards, Aniston actually went to People Magazine to specifically deny The Mail’s story and claim that she only spends $200 a month on beauty treatments. Which was interesting because A) I don’t believe Aniston ONLY spends $200 a month on herself and B) Aniston will not come out and deny any of the stories about the unholy Bermuda Triangle or any of the millions of stories about her womb, her dating life or how she casually uses the word “retard” in conversation, but she’ll totally come out and deny a story about her beauty treatments.

Which leads me to what I’m sure is another dumb “Aniston’s beauty treatments” story. Now Magazine and The Mail claim that Aniston loves using Vaseline to “keep wrinkles at bay.” For real.

Thrifty Jennifer Aniston doesn’t just rely on expensive creams and overpriced serums to maintain her youthful skin. The wealthy 43-year-old actress keeps wrinkles at bay using a tried-and-tested technique that costs just £1. Every night, she religiously smoothes trusted beauty stand-by Vaseline below each eye.

The former Friends star starts each morning with another simple – and free – technique for glowing skin. She fills her sink with water and ice cubes and dips her face in it to shrink the pores and reduce puffiness around her eyes.

‘Jen doesn’t like the thought of surgery because she doesn’t want to look stretched, so she has a 30-minute nightly beauty ritual,’ an insider told Now magazine. ‘Jen’s very disciplined when it comes to staying young.’

The LA-based actress, who is dating Justin Theroux, begins her DIY facial by steaming her pores for ten minutes. She then applies a gentle cleanser and toner, followed by Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion. Next she gives herself a ten-minute facial massage to stimulate skin cells and help tighten her muscles, finishing with Dr LeWinn’s Ultra R4 Restorative Cream.

Dedicated Jennifer then applies a vitamin A treatment from Anna Lotan called Rénova, which she leaves on for another 10 minutes, in which time she smooths vitamin E capsules on to her shins and elbows.

The final touch is the quarter of a teaspoon of Vaseline under each eye. It may seem like an effort, but if the key to flawless skin is elbow grease rather than pricey products , perhaps we should all start trying the Aniston regime.

[From The Mail]

Sure, I’ll buy that she spends a half an hour every night doing this crazy-extensive beauty ritual. I’ll also buy that Aniston is tweaking occasionally – sometimes she looks Botoxy and full of fillers, sometimes not – which says to me that she’s not getting the “non-surgical” stuff on a weekly basis, but she is doing something. As for the Vaseline – my mother swears by it, but she uses it to take off her eye makeup. I guess it works as some under-eye treatment too.

    Ice cold water definitely works for the pores. My fave beauty product for hair and getting it to have elasticity and REAL growth, is avacado oil.

    • ComeNOW says:

      Take a look at the above. There’s a reason she was voted worst skin in HD a couple years back. The blasted out cleaned up Getty images that make their way to blogs and mags, that her PR people INSIST be fixed first, don’t tell the REAL story. Vaseline won’t do anything to help pores and craters the size of the moon. We’re not even talking about the 4 nose jobs, hairline surgery,juvadermed cheeks and restylane duck bill she’s had for the last few years. Besides, the woman, on record, has admitted to botox, to fillers (always in disingenuous, ‘Oh sure I’ve tried it, but it’s a slippery slope…blah blah’ – never owning up to her habitual usage – but not wanting to deny outright, lest she be caught like she was coming out of Dr. Kanoodia’s for her ‘deviated septum’ surgery..heh), and just a month or so ago, said she trolled on the internet for ‘laser p.orn,’ when asked what that was – she said she’s into all of the newfangled laser contraptions to improve the skin or whatever. Yeah, she sounds like a hoot to be around. My point? Anyone whose pasttime and spare time is spent looking for laser devices on the web, is gonna be severely high maintenance, as if we didn’t know that about this woman already.

      • Emma - the JP lover says:

        You know what gets me? People really believe that Jen walked around NYC wearing those ‘large’ dark sunglasses the week after her ‘one’ hospital visit because she was upset about her mother.

        She has been photographed several times entering or leaving Spas. She even treated Justin to a Spa day. The woman never denied the story that she spends $200,000. a year on her hair, so are we really to believe that she only puts ‘1 pound’s’ worth of effort into her face and skin?

        This isn’t hate, Jen-Hens, really. It’s just that some women need very little maintenance on their face and skin, and some women need more. Unfortunately, Jennifer isn’t a low maintenance woman. She is ‘not’ a natural beauty. Heck, how could she be? The way she looks today is nothing like how her birth face ‘would have looked’ without several cosmetic changes.

      • blah says:

        while I don’t deny Maniston’s skin sucks compared to other actresses her age, a big contributor to her looking so assy in that pic is bc it looks to be a raw, unprocessed HD shot. Anyone looks gross shot under those circumstances. Whoever took that pic and published it must really hate her.

      • Dotty says:

        Her greek mustache is showing!

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        I don’t think it is just the HD. AND I think she lies like a rug. I am her age and look at least my late 20s with NO makeup. Be happy to prove with pics.

        I didn’t start using anything on my face until a month ago. Slept with makeup on, sun, etc.

        Now I use retinol pads am and pm plus dark spot corrector. I added it up and I spend 120 a month on products. BTW, philosophys miracle worker will erase your lines, even deep ones and shrink your pores. It’s a miracle.

        Saw people I haven’t seen in 18 years two weeks ago and they all said I haven’t aged. It’s the Italian, we don’t crack too much either.

        Her skin looks worse than mine ever did.
        So if I spend 120 on skin, not including cleansers, she is a bald faced liar, the woman of laser porn.

        That doesn’t count the trainers, the hair, etc.
        The “good girl” lies like a rug.

    • skuddles says:

      The ice water plunge was also Joan Crawford’s beauty secret (anyone remember “Mommy Dearest”?) – I suspect in Joan’s case it also helped a lot with boozy face bloat…

      • Emma - the JP lover says:

        Paul Newman swore by this as well. He once said in an interview that he always plunged his face in ice water 30-minutes before leaving for a function.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        When I was a teen, I used the “towel-over-the-head-over-a-bowl-of-steaming-water-and-mint-leaves” method to open the pores; followed by a mud masque & rinse; followed by the “face-in-a-bowl-of-ice-water” technique to re-close cleansed pores.

        I had the rare occasional blackhead and NEVER got zits! 🙂

    • thyphoid mary says:

      Wow! I gotta give her credit on this one, i have had some psoriasis patches on my arms and nothing, not even the steroid creams the dermatologist prescribed worked. Until one day the patches were so dry the almost cracked the skin and i had nothing but a jar of vaseline with aloe vera and vitamin E. I havent used naything else since then and i even used it as make up remover, to wake up to extra soft dewy skin. Aniston: this is probably the smartest thing you ‘ve ever said, girl! I am pleasantly surpirsed.
      I used to associate it with Wanda (Jamie Fox) from “in living color”, back in the day putting vaselineher huge lips…lol…i guess it had some truth to it.

      • Anon says:

        Actually Tyra Banks said this several years ago when she gifted her audience with little Vaseline bejeweled jars (on her gifts on the cheap show or something like that–Tyra’s cheap). Her #1 beauty aide and other models’ too.
        Btw, what happened to Aniston’s bar of Neutrogena soap she’s been using since her teens? Her story change again?

  2. jano1981 says:

    Like her or not, I love this routine! I have a couple kids and a hubby but I think I can find the time. Perhaps minus the ten minute massage or reducing it to a couple minutes. I have purchased the most expensive and most budget friendly product and always come back to cetaphil facewash and lotions.

    • jano1981 says:

      Oh. But probably not those last 2 creams. Bet those are a pretty penny! 🙂

      • ZenB!tch says:

        The Lewinn costs $65 on par with my Perricone eyecream and the Anna Lotan Renova line runs from $30 to $124.

        The Renova line is for dry skin and the LeWinn is a peptide cream. Those two and the Cetaphil make my skin feel greasy thinking about it.

        I compensate for my pricey products with Rite-Aid generic ROC Retinol night cream and Rite-Aid generic ROC ultra lift SPF 30 which are $15 each ($30 for the brand name).

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Zen bitch, I love your name.
        Anyway, ROC is reviewed in allure as one of the best OTC retinols.
        I am swearing by the philosophy miracle worker line. What a difference! For the massage, Olays intensive night cream massaged in is rated best and is about thirty.

        Even the pricey stuff isn’t too bad. Philosophy is 72 for the pads, I get both, the light spot antioxidant is 65 and the murad is about the same. All last for two months.

        I would not put petroleum products on my face. My grandma who lived in the desert and rode horses daily used oil of Olay cream religiously and had scant wrinkles and flawless skin until her death at 80!

    • Maguita says:

      Vaseline works for me… It doesn’t take away the wrinkles, but it makes them less deep, and carved in your forehead.

      I learned the best routine is the most natural one, faithful to your skin-tone origins. I was born around the Mediterranean, and even if I’ve been an American citizen most of my life, nothing beats Olive Oil and organic sugar for my daily facial scrub.

      Best around the eyes treatment? Tomato paste… Yes, I am a walking, talking, hot little Italian dressing. I will definitely give Jen’s treatments a shot though. See what comes out of it!

      • Meanchick says:

        I use the olive oil/sugar combo as a scrub once per month. Other than that, I use Oil of Olay cleanser, toner, moisturizer or the generic verson depending on my pockets. You don’t need much. All of that expensive crap is a waste of money IMHO. If you smoke (Jen used to) and drink (I think she still likes the sauce), it will age your skin. Besides, if she “tweaks” here & there, what’s the point of all of that anyway?

      • Maguita says:

        Definitely agree, I had bought a few years ago Christian Dior’s Capture Sculpt 10 when I was having a pore and spots problem, and it made my pores look like moon craters!

        Went back to basics: room-temperature organic natural yogurt, honey and lime masks.

        Never went back to pricey products after that, just stick to old-fashioned Nivea and Vaseline mixed with whatever your skin needs during seasonal changes!

      • Sassy says:

        Try this ladies. Regular chapstick at night around eyes and on lips and any areas with wrinkles. It works. Also Alpha Hydrox 12% cream $15. Buy online. Wash face with any non greasy cleanser or soap like Dove. That’s it.

      • Issa says:

        @Maguita do you just out plan tomato paste around your eyes and leave it on for a few minutes? Know tomatoes are great for your skin when you eat them but never heard to use it literally on top of the skin.

      • Maguita says:

        @Issa, don’t be disgusted, but I mix it with high-fat organic sour cream. If not, it might burn.

        I apply this once a week around my eyes (not on eyelids though), the skin around my eyes feels supple, and looks much-much lighter (again, Mediterranean heritage, even if I’m pale, blue-eyed blonde; Some things like dark circles, need all the help they can get).

    • TXCinderella says:

      Cetaphil rocks! I have the softest, clearest skin due to Cetaphil. My boss’s dermatologist told her that is the best skin cleanser out there and I’ve been using it ever since.

      • NYC_girl says:

        I sometimes use this in the winter when my skin gets dry, but I’ve noticed it contains a lot of parabens. I’ve been trying to avoid that in stuff I use moisturizers, shampoo, etc — kind of scary if you read up on them.

      • Runs with Scissors says:

        Yep parabens in Cetaphil…

      • sdgirl says:

        Cetaphil is great, but i do think parabens are legitmately scary, so really try to avoid them. My new cheap, basic cleansers are Earth Sciences Clarifying or Creamy (I change during the seasons). They work great – even remove eye makeup with no stinging.

        Is Jen realy using Vaseline? umm…doubt it.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      Sounds normal to me – mixing the pricey with the non-pricey. I have a little $15 clairol facial steaming machine which also doubles as a sinus opener on allergy days. Her skin has to be be drier than mine (we are the same age) because Cetaphil is too greasy for me. I splurge on my cleanser and eyecream. The latter because I was told vaseline was bad for my face because it clogs your pores. It took FOREVER to find an eyecream that actually works. They aren’t saggy or wrinkly just super dry.

      I thought Renova was the brandname for the gentler version of Retin A.

      Oh and for anyone who has no time – like I don’t in the morning, I totally recommend the Garnier B&B cream.

      • jano1981 says:

        I don’t like the cetaphil you put on and wipe off. Will use in a pinch but I have a box full of expensive creams that just felt greasy or just not at all what I need. Too much of anything in the wrong spot and I will still Breakout. I actually use the cetaphil acne foaming wash and lotion. Love it.

      • jenna68 says:

        Renova is the brand name for a gentler version of Retin A – it’s in a cream base instead of a gel, so it’s a bit gentler on the skin. I’m 43, and I’ve been using it for about a year now – it’s definitely erased some very fine lines, and has softened up some that weren’t quite wrinkles yet, but were headed that way. It also makes my skin baby soft, and gives it a nice glow. I love the stuff!

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Retin A burns the bejeebers out of my skin, even in small doses like the Lubriderm Daily Renewal lotion.

        Guess I’m destined for a face – and body-full of wrinkles! 🙁

  3. Courtney says:

    If vaseline means botox.. then yes, definitely!

    • ZenB!tch says:

      I don’t think so – look at those forehead creases. HUGE They look like canyons. She seems to be on the opposite beauty regimin from mine – her body is in great shape – but her face looks well 43.

      Mine is the opposite, my skin looks great but my body looks um… 43.

  4. Lukie says:

    Vaseline has been keeping the women of my family young look

    • Rhea says:

      My son uses Cetaphil but during the coldest winter time, he still needs vaseline as an extra. I really think every skin treatment is different depends on the type of the skin. You are very lucky if only vaseline that has been keeping the women in your family looking young. 🙂

  5. alison says:

    Are we really supposed to believe she uses cetaphil?

    I have a pretty lengthy skin care routine. Cleanser, toner, exfoliant, benzoyl peroxide, skin lightening lotion, then sunscreen. twice a day (except for the sunscreen obviously). But i’m not always diligent.

  6. Fyofeelings says:

    And a good plastic surgeon

    • Janet says:

      And an expert at Photoshop.

      • ComeNOW says:

        Aniston is a fraud. Has the benefit of a PR power flack that would step in front of a bus for her, and is used to bullying blogs, rags and mags from daring to put real photos of her up. For the last several years (since 2006) she’s had tons of cosmetic work, her face on Friends is totally different than what she looks like now. She’s gone from looking like an ethnic greek or jewish looking woman, to Laura Linney. Has shortened slimmed the nose, and the chin, is using fillers regularly, juvaderm and restylane and has had her upper face resculpted, she used to have these deep brackets, like Tootsie on the sides of her nose, theyve been blasted out and filled in. Weird thing is, she doesn’t look better, just older and different than Rachel Green.

    • Agnes says:

      and spending most of one’s time grooming.

  7. Nanea says:

    Vaseline? As in petroleum jelly?

    If she really uses that, she’s an even dumber blonde than I thought she was.

    I don’t get how people still use products made of mineral oil on their skin.

    • Madge says:

      Petroleum jelly helps to keep water in skin. I can’t use it because it clog my pores but i know people who are using it and everything is fine. It really depends on skin.

    • Greta says:

      For work, I interviewed a 90+ year old black woman whose skin looked youthful and glowing. I couldn’t resist asking her beauty regime. She told me she was raised by her grandmother a ex-slave! Grandmother taught her to mix the old brown petroleum jelly with a little lemon juice then apply overnight to face. I cannot find that old style p.j. Anyway, genetics plays a part in all our skin’s aging. But the old woman got a laugh out of me when she exclaimed, “I hear the old ladies complain about their skin, but it’s their own fault for not taking care of it!”
      As a girl, I received similar advice from my Austrian born grandma. Now I use Renova overnight with Prevage SPF 30 during the day. And though I’ve taken care of my skin, my good genes and bone structure played help my beautiful 60 year old skin! My dermo also recommends Cetaphil and other inexpensive products for moisturising. P.J. is great under the eyes, mascara be gone!

  8. Madge says:

    Whatever she does it works for her. She looks ab fab and natural. And she has body to die for.

  9. Jackie says:

    awww, she is just like regular folk.

  10. TXCinderella says:

    Joan Crawford used to scrub her face with scalding water and soap and then pour rubbing alcohol over ice and then splash it on her face to close up her pores. This is not a new fangled thing in beauty regimes.

  11. Pretty Kitty says:

    Vaseline would make me break out ;/

  12. lower-case deb says:

    sounds like another “hidden advertisement” for these products.

    they have yet to figure out a way to “borrow” a celeb name and make their article not sound like a late night infomercial (the one with jovial upbeat insomniac guy voice).

  13. tru tru says:

    yup, your mom is right–vaseline def removes makeup easily and after I exfoliate, I use a lil olive oil and vaseline mix and my skin is so supple the next morning…just apply sunscreen and go.

    I lightly pat it on the dry areas, I don’t slather it.

    vaseline hasn’t hurt folks after all of these yrs, I have no complaints.

    I use it once or twice a week, dry skin leads to wrinkles. I have none. I’ve tried so many moisturizers, expensive, cheap etc. it keeps my skin neutral and it doesn’t burn or dry me out.

    uhhh not sure about Jenn though.

    • Aubra says:

      Vaseline and baby oil are great for removing makeup. I also use vaseline on my feet at night after a shower and wear cotton socks so that they’re soft.

  14. Tiegs says:

    I think the thing about her ‘selective’ tabloid denials is probably to with the amount of coverage. Now if she started denying all that Brangelina crap, and the constant womb watch, she’d have to keep doing it for the rest of her life.

    If she responds to one accusation, but not another a week later, people would be all over her saying that if she’s not denying it, then it must be true.

    It’s not like Brad and Angelina respond either. I think they’ve all moved on and it’s just the obsessive fans and tabloids that perpetuate the triangle.

    • ComeNOW says:

      I don’t buy it. First off, because ‘Brangelina,’ were made the bad guys in the tabloid press, if not directly by her explicitly (she gave tacit agreement by holding a grudge with Pitt before forgiving his insensitivity – in the press, only to turn around and start a faux catfight with Jolie when she was promoting that Dog movie, or something silly) – them coming out and saying anything was futile. It was up to the perceived person ‘done wrong,’ to say, ‘Hey, all is cool – I wish Brad the best, some things weren’t made to go the distance, blah blah blah,’ that way, when one party moved on, the other party who didn’t move on AS quickly, still wouldn’t look like a loser/complainer/whiner. She didn’t do that, she ate it up – let the silly tabs write their stories, gave cold shoulder, held grudges, allowing/aiding/abetting the tabloid narrative. People get divorced every day, you either handle things like a grown up with class, so as to not make yourself appear the sad sack left behind (see Reese Witherspoon, see Uma Thurman, see Kate Hudson, see J.Lo, etc.) OR, you do the opposite cry on the cover of all the women’s mags you can, make your ex the demon, cry in Oprah’s bazooms. Don’t get me wrong – it was a genuis career move, afterall, who is she, if not the woman, all the other angry women, rally for and root for to be happy as that’s ‘the best revenge,’ on Brangelina…(rolls eyes). That’s her schtick, and I honestly can see her playing it til she’s ready for assisted living.

      • Tiegs says:

        I can barely understand a word you’ve said, so I think it’s safe to say that a reasonable, unbiased debate between us is not going to happen.

    • A says:

      I do think she’s moved on, but it’s only been recently since she’s met Justin. Lainey’s pointed out some of the weird timing of Jennifer Aniston when Brangelina has the focus on them.

      For example, I remember this because before Lainey pointed it out I thought it was all just coincidence. When Tree of Life premiered at Cannes, that same day Jennifer Aniston’s PR guy gave a statement to People magazine about how her dog died. Clincher is, the dog died like a week or so beforehand but it’s that particular day they decide to issue a statement to the press? Why even issue a statement in the first place? Another one was that her perfume launch kept getting moved around and around, and finally her perfume was released the same week Angelina’s film Salt was released. So there were photos of her in London doing promo for the perfume the same week a portion of the press was focusing on Angie because of her new film. Another one was where she gave that interview to Vogue about how Angie was “uncool.” Apparently, she asked the reporter to turn off the recorder and the reporter complied, and it was implied that she gave further info about Angelina. Jennifer is a pro, she knows how that is going to come across. The Vanity Fair thing too, where she went I will have a kid, I will, and then turns around accuses people of being sexist or dumb for wondering if she’s pregnant? The Vanity Fair article came out when many people believed she and Brad broke up because he wanted kids and she didn’t, so all of the sudden she plays the maternity card to get more people on her side and believe they broke up because of the cheating. Just saying, there are a lot more things like that too.

  15. Bite me aka aniston says:

    I mean they use vaseline on the camera lenses to shot her

  16. Janet says:

    You don’t need all that gunk and glop on your face. It just clogs your pores all up. I’ve been cleaning my face every day since I was 13 with Dial soap and water. Give it a good scrub and rinse, rinse, rinse… and when you think you’ve rinsed enough, rinse some more. Then pat your face dry and apply plain jojoba oil. It’s the best mosturizer out there. I’m pushing 60 and I still don’t have wrinkles.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      I wouldn’t put Dial on my face (maybe the t-zone) but here is a second vote for jojoba oil as make up remover – my eye area is soooo dry that I have to be picky.

      I was doing the oil wash for a time (olive and castor) but I got lazy having to steam it off every night. I do wonder if Jen steams EVERY night. I guess its possible since she is pretty obsessive about her diet and exercise routine.

    • Vesper says:

      Facial skin can vary widely and what works really well for one person cannot said to work for everyone or even the majority. Even something as simple as a steam cleanse isn’t recommended for anyone who has systic acne. I think specific product recommendations should always be taken with a grain of salt.

      In my family, our skin is so senstive that we can only use higher end baby products, organic products and quality, plant based / essential oils. Using a bar of soap or vaseline would screw up my skin completely.

      The safest route, according to my dermatologist, is using products that don’t contain chemicals unless one needs to treat acne. Essential oils can do amazing things, even for those with oily skin.

  17. Rory says:

    Agree with Janet. It’s a petro by-product and very comedogenic (and carcinogenic, by the way). Very bad for the skin. And she used to be cute; she was never pretty and certainly isn’t now. A lot of people don’t realize that Johnson and Johnson products are very bad for babies. Too much garbage in them.

  18. Nina says:

    Dear the insider who said ‘Jen’s very disciplined when it comes to staying young’:

    I think you meant -looking- young, not -staying- young. Unless she’s made a pact with the devil or discovered some kind of dark science, no one can STAY young, disciplined or not.


  19. Kim1 says:

    Now makes up celeb interviews less reliable than British tabloids

  20. HadlyB says:

    I don’t buy Vaseline does anything – its petroleum. It does not do anything for wrinkles.

    However maybe Jen and other aging celebs ( 38 and over maybe) are doing bio-identical hormones.

    If you are getting low on estrogen it affects your skin, hair, wrinkles, energy etc .. even if you haven’t reached menopause age yet some start these to keep up the estrogen .. and look and feel younger.

    I also don’t doubt she uses botox, fillers, laser, ulthera and other beauty treatments. Most people would take advantage of some of these if the price was more affordable.. not to the extreme but more often than not.

    • Vesper says:

      U can buy a vaseline type product without petroleum.

      One example, Live Clean Baby has a non-petroleum jelly that is 100% natural ingedients. Looks and feels like regular vaseline.

  21. Drivel Lady says:

    My mom used Vaseline too and hardly had any wrinkles. I don’t have wrinkles nearing 50 either, but I attribute that to sunscreen and pure cocoa butter mixed (in microwave) with an softener like olive oil. I haven’t used commercial moisturizers in years and when I recently tried one because it did a great sales job on me, it made my skin hurt!

  22. Bayarealife says:

    Why is this article so snarky. Those are actually really good beauty tips and I love cetaphil products. She doesn’t have to come out and respond to every negative tabloid story because it does nothing for her to do such.

    • Kim1 says:

      I agree although I would deny dating him when he had a girlfriend especially w the history of tabloid triangle .

  23. pwal says:

    Ummm… when she was on Conan, didn’t she say she had a chemical peel?

    So clearly, Vaseline didn’t do the job completely.

  24. ZenB!tch says:

    She then applies a gentle cleanser and toner, followed by Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion.——————————-

    What cleanser…. we won’t discuss how much mine cost. I was duped by the beauty counter girl. It’s the same brand I used pre-recession. I’m guessing her’s is about as pricey if not worse.

    I am proud of her for not using La Mer – that crap did nothing for me.

    • Becky1 says:

      Yeah-I tried Creme de La Mer, too. Waste of money. It actually made me break out.

    Shes clearly had (good) work done. The girl has admitted to nose jobs and says she’s into laser porn we are supposed to believe she would balk @ Botox or fillers yeah right. I don’t know why she tries so hard to deny the obvious (to anyone who knows about skin). She learned from Courtney’s mistakes but in certain candid shots the telltale signs tell the tale.

    • GrandPoobah says:

      She’s admitted to using Botox and fillers in the past and that she thought they looked weird so she stopped. She did not deny that she used them.

      Her face no longer looks puffy and weird like it did last year around the Bounty Hunter so I dont know what ‘obvious’ plastic surgery you’re seeing.

        Oh please Nicole Kidman has said she’s sick of Botox too but her face speaks for itself. She may not like the effects that Botox has but there are plenty of other things a gal with her resources can do. So she probably isn’t technically lying she might not use Botox but there are many other things on the market I’ll begrudgingly admit she’s aging well considering that she’s no natural beauty. But when she smiles too big or gets super expressive in interviews save a couple of lines for show to fool the minivans her face isn’t moving.

    While it may work for the appearance of wrinkles, petroleum is NOT good to put on skin, it is very toxic. Whatever gets put on the skin(body’s largest organ) gets into the body and accumulates if it can’t be broken down.

    Um, people, can we talk about what Vaseline IS? Petrolatum ( vaseline) is actually TERRIBLE for your skin, and should never be used as an everyday skincare regimen. It is listed as one of the ’12 killer chemicals’ that should be avoided at all costs. What most people don’t realize is that skin damage is a stochastic process, with little bits of damage accumulating over time, until a critical mass of damage is reached, and the skin is damaged permanently. Please, take the time to research the stuff you put on your skin…in the US, there is NO FDA regulation on the skincare/cosmetics market, and as a result, toxic ingredients are commonplace in nearly all products here. Additionally, due to lack of oversight, false claims as to health and beauty benefits of products are rampant. There are a few websites that are helpful for this. My favorite is Skin Deep’s site (, where you can enter the name of your product, and it will show you a hazard rating for it, based on the ingredients. Try it-you’ll be appalled. Okay, done ranting! 🙂

    I have used vaseline for years. I love it. I use it to take off my eyemakeup and I use it for quick daubs on my wrinkles. Tyra Banks loves it too!

  29. paola says:

    Marilyn Monroe used Vaseline for her face all the time and while it kept her skin elastic and young it also made grow facial hair on her cheeks. i stopped using it as soon as i read that article and i have to admit the little hair on the cheeks seemed bigger and fuller!!

  30. Nia says:

    Petrolatum is used in many OTC and prescription products. There is a USP monograph for such. Vaseline can thicken the epidermis and from what many of the chemists I have worked with the best moisture barrier. If your pores can tolerate it though. There are regs for cosmectics and ingredients. There are under the FD&C acts. Also, there is an organization called the CTFA which over the years has catalogue many of the ingredients used with tox data that is available to all companies. Many people don’t realize that many of the ingredients that say not tested on animals mean that their product was not tested. Many of the ingredients were at one point tested. As long as an ingredient company does not change the manufacutiring process and starting materials they can use the tox data available.

    I’m not a fan. But damn why would anyone care. I don’t get it. Every topic about her is Superficial. All we read about is her exercise routine or diet or hair oh and who she is dating.

    I would think her fans would be offended that this is all that is ever talked about this woman.

    It all just makes her look like a fool or some reality TV star.

    If she put that much effort in her selection of films/acting well you fill in the blank. But I guess it is all about priorities.

    regarding vaseline.. I only use it on my feet, elbows and knees. Never on my face.

    • blonde on the dock says:

      Well it’s obvious people care by the number of comments on this thread. 101 so far. Most women use cosmetics.

  32. Dana M says:

    Uh, no thanks but I’ll pass on Vaseline’s toxic chemical ingredients.

  33. Billy says:

    Use cruelty-free products, Jennifer. Shame, shame.

  34. Hipocricy says:

    If you want to be serious with fighting wrinkles and premature aging, first thing to do : don’t go under the sun. Second, don’t smoke cigarettes, third : drink a lot of water and as few as possible any alcohol but a daily glass of wine.

  35. Issa says:

    My Grandmother used vaseline and olive oil. She never had a wrinkle on her face. She was from a mixed background, so I think her genetics contributed but she swore by vaseline & olive oil.

  36. Dahlia1947 says:

    Well her skin looks great and I think that it can be achieved by just doing this stuff at home. Yeah I didn’t believe that she ONLY used vaseline! She’s got money so she can splurge on the expensive creams.

    If she’s had surgery then she’s going to one of the BEST surgeons!

  37. Vasoline also works wonders on squeaky door hinges…

  38. Janet says:

    She’s got wrinkles on her forehead, vaseline or no vaseline. You can see them in the photo. And her skin is looking leathery. Too much sun and too many cigarettes.

    Jen is part Greek. Greek women age gracefully.

    Okay, can someone help me with my acne?! I went to the doctor and he have me a cream that has an antibiotic plus something else…I think benzoyl peroxide but it’s not helping. 🙁

    • I developed a case of adult acne about 7 years ago. I went to a dermatologist and was prescribed a cream with retinol(If I remember correctly)It took a few months but it worked,only bad thing was it makes your skin sensitive to sunlight.And I work

    • Bec says:

      My neighbor uses Proactiv for acne and has the most amazing skin. She swears by it. Her skin looks so good I even thought about getting it and I don’t have acne!

  41. Liberty says:

    My mother and grandmother (and two of my friends) have flawless soft smooth skin and they all swear by Ponds cleansing creams and moisturizer. I also love Origins A Perfect World cleanser and moisturizing creme….my skin looks clear and even and no lines. Genes help and lots of water, little alcohol and no smoking ever. My mother and her young looking best friend swear by vitamin E…take it, or rub it in. A monthly scrub of olive oil + salt or sugar too. Will try the tomato sauce and sour cream trick this weekend. My aunt has stunning skin for a woman of 69 and says she tones with rosewater and occasionally depicts her eye area with a little witch hazel on a cotton pad.

  42. Liberty says:

    Edit: depuffs not depicts. Autocorrect.

  43. Carolyn says:

    Oh dear. Huvane & Aniston are going back to Barbie Jen. Things are getting desperate…far too many other stars getting valuable PR space. Damn that Drew for getting married…damn that Jessica for having a baby. Zzzzz…..

    PS – with ‘yall in pointing out Vaseline is PETROLEUM jelly. Yeah, that’s great for skincare.

  44. maria says:

    the best facial creams are the simple ones. back to basics. you have to make sure to stay hydrated from an earlier age though.

  45. Nia says:

    For Isa: Try nicontinamide(Rx) or extra zinc. Most adult acne is caused by a decrease in immune system due to stress. Zinc is a mineral many people with acne are low in. I don’t take the recommended dosage of nicotinamide but it really helps my acne and roscea. I have been through the lot including two rounds of accutane.

  46. Oksana says:

    To find ideal skincare products can be a very long and expensive journey with mountains of products available. People shouldn’t slam cheap or expensive products, it’s just different things work for different types of skins and environments. Me personally, can’t use anything oil-based. I tried olive oil, bio-oil, baby oil and only thing it gave me was dry patches on my skin. None of a over counter creams will do miracles and make wrinkles go away as none of them are strong enough to penetrate amounts of skin layers of defense to get that deep (that’s the original purpose of skin). I found that Shisedo skincare works great for me to keep my skin hydrated (it maybe a little bit expensive but those big bottles last me for a very long time to justify the price) and I do Botox to prevent wrinkles. No shame in it as long as you don’t tweak yourself stupidly but use it as a maintenance tool. Good diet and basic common knowledge, Like not frying yourself on a sun, do a great job as well.
