Jennifer Lopez is putting out a skincare line, promises it will work

I was surprised at how popular the skincare post was on Friday. I’m a newbie when it comes to skincare and I learned a lot from your comments and suggestions. Last night I tried the microneedling device that I linked in that post. I cleaned my skin with Simple foaming cleanser and then exfoliated with the acure brightening facial scrub. (It does seem to work, but has a lot of grit that takes time to rinse off.) After microneedling my skin gently (directions are here), I cleaned the device with soap and water and then soaked it in alcohol as recommended. Then I rinsed my face with water and treated my skin with Bare Minerals serum. (It was just a sample I had.) My face is so smooth today and feels amazing! It’s a little tingly but it doesn’t hurt and it definitely made a difference. As long as you stick to around .25mm needles at home, I think microneedling is safe to try and shows results. Also I ordered the Costco K-Beauty skincare kit that Skyblue recommended. It was $100 which felt like a splurge but you get full size products and that’s cheaper than a facial.

So thanks for all your help and advice on that post. I may do a follow up in a day or two with what I’ve learned as I keep reading about skincare. Many celebrities have skincare lines including Salma Hayek, Christie Brinkley and Miranda Kerr. Jennifer Lopez is getting into this lucrative business with her own line, coming out next year. She already put out a makeup capsule collection earlier this year and of course she has perfume and clothing lines. Given how amazing she always looks at 49, this is a natural next step.

After years of being asked for her skin-care routine, Lopez revealed that she’s finally working on a new line. “I will be coming out with a skin-care line. I’ve been working on it for a long time because I don’t want to put [just] anything out,” she said during a speaking event in New York City, where she was promoting her new film Second Act. She told moderator Yari Blanco, who asked about her skin-care regimen, “I get that question a lot, especially as I get older. I want it to be something that encompasses all the things I’ve learned and all the secrets I have. And it doesn’t have anything to do with needles.”

As if that wasn’t enough exciting news for the crowd at co-working space The Wing, who cheered when she made the announcement, J.Lo said that the product will be effective, especially being that it’s a personal project. “It’s going to be something that works,” she said. “That’s what you can count on when my name is on something.”

And while Lopez didn’t give many details on the line — like the exact products or the name — we’re predicting that there will be a brightening moisturizer or serum included in the collection. Because when it comes to Lopez, everyone always wants to know how they can achieve that “J.Lo glow.” The one thing we do know is that the release is tentatively scheduled for late 2019, as Lopez announced at The Wing, and we’re marking our calendars.

Normally I would think “oh that’s great that it doesn’t have any needles” but now that I’ve tried microneedling I’m a convert. I’m sure there are all sorts of other celebrity skincare treatments that I’m also missing out on, like mild acidic serums and treatments. Lopez told People in 2016 that she uses glycolic acid (here’s a high rated inexpensive brand) and night creams. Plus she possibly had laser resurfacing at some point, but I’m just guessing. I have to stop reading all about this stuff as I just end up spending money for problems I didn’t realize I had.

    I am super excited to see her line, even if I don’t end up buying anything from it. JLo’s skin looks great, she eats well, gets a lot of sleep, stays away from caffeine and alcohol and exercises. She is extremely disciplined in terms of self-care. But I do believe that she has gotten a facelift, and I do believe that she looks her age, which is fine. She still looks terrific.

    • Mel M says:

      Really? With all the makeup on maybe but with her bare skin, like the IG photo she posted a few months ago, she looks so young to me.

      I’m excited to see what she come out with too and like you celebitchy im finally diving headfirst into skin care, which I should’ve done a long time ago. I was a sun worshiper and regret every second of it because I’m not dark completed but everyone around me is like my mother and sister, my husband and his entire family so I just wanted to be as tan as them. Anyway, so many things out and there and I wish I had all the money to try it all. The only good thing to come out of it is that I can tell me kids to use SPF all the time and that your skin will thank you done the road.

  2. savu says:

    I hope it’s all good! I always wonder if celebrities who have their own lines actually use it. Like is she just gonna keep using all the things she already loves?

    • me says:

      Exactly. Her skin is that good because of years of good eating, exercise, and genetics, and whatever creams/potions she’s already been using. If you want to have her skin, just use what she’s been using for years and follow her diet…but still you can’t get her genes.

  3. Rhys says:

    I think she has very good genes (her mother looks terrific) and she obviously took care of herself. Since this skin care she’s releasing had nothing to do with her looks, I won’t be buying it.

    • Isabelle says:

      Its rumored she slathers herself in LaMer. LaMer is some good sauce IMO but can’t imagine the cost of it when you can afford to use it like a body cream. Girl isn’t telling the whole truth.

      • Bailie says:

        I don’t know, smells like Nivea…a lot of marketing going on.
        I think it’s genetics, lifestyle and of course she can afford countless facials and laser treatments, IPL’s and who knows what else.

      • Isabelle says:

        Its compared to Nivea a lot but the ingredients are very different, no matter what the blogs try to say about it. Tried both and LaMar delivers. If I had to compare it to anything it would be Algenist but still….no true comparison. Am I spending $100 on it heck no but it does deliver. Not a miracle worker but it delivers for the most part.

        As far as Jennifer look at pictures of her mom, its hugely genetic. She also is religious about skin are and taking care of herself.

  4. Isabelle says:

    I use a .30mm needle and it definitely help my skin look more radiant. A smaller needle is perfect for the “glow”. For now a small needle is perfect for my skin care needs and have no desire to graduate to a larger needle. When I began using Retin-A (Amen this is the real game changer) my Esthetician said a lot if not most of her clients start off with “too much”. It is always best to start off on the smaller end and then graduate. The skin not only adapts but you are more likely to stay with it. Real results don’t happen until almost months to a year after using a product consistently.

    • Becks says:

      I’ve been using Retin A for over ten years and I swear by it! People are always shocked when I tell them my age, ha!
      I am definitely going to look into this microneedling device, it has great reviews.

      • Isabelle says:

        Retin-A is the God of skin care everything else is an underlying. nothing and I mean nothing has compared.

  5. Sam says:

    I’m extremely SKEPTICAL of products being sold by a celebrity, it’s too often heavy duty marketing with a famous face and not much substance.
    JLo is coming out with new skin care line and many people will buy into it, because she is a very attractive woman, but I wonder how often people wonder about how much of genetics is involved in her good looks, how about the organic healthy foods she eats, the amount of exercise she does, how much sleeps she gets and how many non-invasive treatments she gets like lasers, peels, facials and who knows what else, because she can certainly afford it all.
    It’s pretty simplistic thinking that someone slaps on products by JL,o on their face and will have similarly good looking and youthful skin.
    My grandma told me many times over the years, treat your body and soul like you only have one, because you do, eat as close to mother nature as possible, sip on a bit of wine on rare occasion only if you must, avoid sugar, rest and relax, don’t smoke and don’t ever leave your house without great sunscreen on your face, neck and hands.
    I wish I would have listened to her earlier in regards to exercise and sleep, but at least I found MUKTI ORGANICS to reverse some damage and that stuff is amazing for my skin.
    I’ve found many wonderful oils like KOSMEA’S organic rose hip oil in the health food store, no celebrity endorsements, but works amazingly and I’m not paying leg and an arm for the marketing.

  6. Another proponent of Retin-A! My dermatologist tells me that it really is the Holy Grail of anti-aging products. I’ve been using it for years, and my insurance covers it!

  7. aenflex says:

    Shorter length needles help with product absorption, but don’t offer any documented collagen stimulating effects.
    Also, it’s good to ensure you’re getting actual needles on your roller, not knife-shaped blades. There is a difference. Attention should be paid to the number of needles as well the as the metal used. More needles does not equal a better effect.
    Unless you own an autoclave, it’s not possible to sterilize rollers at home.
    Much research should be undertaken before rolling at home. Also stamping versus rolling should be considered to mitigate tearing. Foreign body granulomas are a thing. I don’t personally advocate for the application of serums after rolling, but that’s just me.

    Unless she is using Retinaldehyde, tretinoin, L-AA, Niacinamide or hydroxy acids, I’ve got no time for another celebrity line. Over priced and over hyped, most of them. You want celebrity skin? See a dermatologist.

    I will blindly buy anything skin related from this woman.

  9. Loca says:

    I’m going to look into glycolic acid products. I have not tried that yet. Most of the Olay products have worked really great on my skin and do the trick. Also the brand Simple cleansing water miscellar works so great at cleaning your skin to go make up free. Target sells it for $4.99 and CVS has a great line from this brand out. I’ve been taking Vitamin E and A supplements since I was young and it has paid off in protecting my skin. Also a lot of people don’t realize but organic ginger white teas will give your skin a youthful appearance. Drink them once a week they provide a lot of antioxidants beneficial to your skin. I’m not against any type of surgery but celebs that have done minimal work have had the most success rather than those that ended up doing to much and have blowfish lips and the joker face. Going to minimal non invasive treatments first when it comes to that time.

  10. Loca says:

    La Mer is also sold online at Sephora and yes the price is outrageous. But one day I will fork it out just to try it I’ve heard great things about that cream Jennifer uses.

  11. Jag says:

    I will definitely try her line, if it’s inexpensive enough because she looks great! And I do believe that she would want to have it actually work because her name is on it.
