Buzzfeed Tried Jennifer Lopez's Skincare Routine And The Results Were Pretty Dramatic

Source - Buzzfeed wrote a fantastic article about one of their editors trying out Jennifer Lopez's skincare routine. As most of us know, själ's Saphir Concentrate Anti-Aging Face Oil is a very important player in JLo's routine.

For your convenience, we have included excerpts from this story below:

We all know Jennifer is blessed with beauty genes, but I really just wanted to know what skincare products she uses to obtain such a lovely, dewy face at 50 FREAKING YEARS OLD!

So, I started doing some research and – at first – I was really bummed because I was finding stuff I already knew, like wear sunscreen daily, drink lots of water, and get lots of sleep. Last year, she told In Style she tries to get 9-10 hours of sleep!

But, then I found the actual products she reportedly uses. In an interview with Well + Good, her makeup artist Mary Phillips said that Jennifer loves Själ Saphir Concentrate – a facial oil that contains aquamarine, botanical retinol, soothing blue chamomile, and a biomarine complex.

Here are my before pics. I am starting to get fine lines on my forehead, so I really hoped these products would help.

I applied the Själ Saphir Concentrate. The directions said you only need a couple drops... It has a mild floral scent, which was pleasant. I patted it in my face and neck and it seemed to absorb well.

WEEK ONE:
I was already happy with the way my skin looked during the first week. It felt more ~plump~ and it looked more hydrated for sure. I felt like the cleanser was doing a good job of removing my makeup as well.

WEEK TWO:
The following week, however, I was not so happy. I started having mad breakouts, my skin was angry! It wasn't that time of the month for me, so I started getting worried that some (or all) of the products weren't going to be a fit for me. After reading that my skin was probably purging from the new products, I decided to wait it out.

WEEK THREE:
After that second week, I was glad I decided to wait things out. My skin was turning back to normal, except that lil' guy you can still see on my left cheek. I should also note that, in addition to taking collagen every day, I increased my water intake as well (in this pic I'm chugging a giant cup of H2O to start the day.)

WEEK FOUR:
I was starting to notice that these products were bringing a nice color to my face (usually my skin would be more dull looking). One bad thing, however, was that I had never had a zit last this long on my cheek. I think it was because of the thick cream I was applying in combination with all the other products. Maybe it wasn't able to "dry" out? IDK, but that part was really annoying!

WEEK FIVE:
Cheek pimple aside, the benefits were really showing at this point. I truly feel like that magical face oil was helping give my skin a permanent glow.

WEEK SIX:
I was pretty shocked at how much my forehead lines were faded by the sixth week. They didn't seem as prominent as they were before, and my son agreed – I mean, look how excited he is for me.

For reference, here is my forehead in week three vs. week six:
