    yes, would love to hear about retinol, still confused which one to use and how to choose. I invested into this smart masking devices UFO2 , the masks it uses are fantastic, nourishing and balancing

  2. raindrops on September 25, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    I’d love a retinol video, along with some reviews/comparisons of the retinols you’ve tried in the past!

  3. Cyndee Kim on September 25, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Love your video’s. You’re as Adorable as always. I started using Retin-A prescription at 32 years old . I’m 56 n everyone thinks I’m in my 30-40 years old. I started .05 n now I use 1. For the last 15 years. I will use it forever. Also Obagi products are great to look into n Glycolic creams. Just sharing with you n everyone:)

    I love Krave’s great barrier relief, but somehow their face wash is quite stripping for me compared to some of the other ones I’ve used.

  5. Dwi Toma on September 25, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    I absolutely love the Glow Recipe papaya sorbet enzyme cleansing balm. I works really well.

  18. Emily Trang on September 25, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Yayyy thanks for this video Jen!!

  19. LaurelieV on September 25, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    Altreno is the best retinol, far superior to Retin-A. I tried a lot of retinols, including Retin-A at 0.025%, prior to trying Altreno and despite phasing in, had to stop all. I changed dermatologists and my new one recommended Altreno (the best dermatologists will be aware of). I began at 0.05% with zero issues. The extra moisturizing ingredients in it are so valuable no matter where you are in your retinol journey and no matter what the rest of your skincare routine looks like, though it’s especially great for those just beginning on retinol. I feel if more people knew about this lotion, they’d stick with the active, which is really the only skincare product scientifically proven to be effective.

  20. Selena Lue on September 25, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Retinol please!!

  21. Makaravine on September 25, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Hi Jen! Have you tried the Drmtlgy CE Ferulic acid serum? Curious to know your thoughts if you have ❤️

  22. Nhi Nguyen on September 25, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    It’s creepy that you just mentioned about 80% of my skincare that I repurchase for the past 5 years lol

  23. Jenna Davis on September 25, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    great products! I also discovered a new favorite, a beauty gadget actually . Foreo Luna 3 facial brush. Honestly, it’s a game changer! my face never looked better

  24. kbl on September 25, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Yass! Retinol video please!

  25. Helen Wilson on September 25, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Have you heard about this brand Foreo??? their smart masking device- WOW> Check it out, super interesting

  26. Lafalot54 on September 25, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    I love seeing people’s skincare favorites since I started getting really into skincare as I’m now in my mid 20’s. Please do a video on retinols! I use the 0.2 retinol in squalane from the ordinary every other night, but I don’t think it’s a high enough percentage to be seeing a difference. I would love some non prescription recommendations too 🙂

  27. Chef Toni on September 25, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Skinceutticals patent on their vitamin c serum expires next year so they’ll either drop the price significantly or other companies will make the same formula for less.

  28. Youngju Anderson on September 25, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Tret/Retinol video please!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Lizzy Bradley on September 25, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Jen you absolutely have to try the Holika Holika Good Cera moisturizing cream. It’s my number one favorite skincare product! Also have you heard of Good Light by David Yi? I love the gel cleanser!

  30. bhappyyyy on September 25, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    My makeup peels when I put on sunblock. Any suggestions??

    I know it have to let it let and dry but in the mornings I don’t have time for that!

  31. Colorful Life on September 25, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    I make subtitles in every language.anyone needed??

  32. Olivia Newton on September 25, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    you are adorable. I have seen this device by Foreo UFO 2 in some videos, maybe even yours and ordered it. First impressions – WOW! was it you who featured this brand??

  33. Lava Yuki on September 25, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    I remember Shu Uemura was the very first oil cleanser I ever used many years ago when they were released and oil cleansers came onto the scene, but now with tons of oil cleansers and balms, I prefer cheaper ones and balms. I loved that Glow recipe balm, it smells lovely. I also like the Farmacy and Beauty of Joseon cleansing balms. I prefer balms to oils as I find them more effective

  34. aznibuki on September 25, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Oh my gosh, o keefe’s is my holy grail for me too! I’m a nurse and a mom and I wash my hands all of the time and that has surpassed any other hand cream I’ve ever bought and the most economical. I can never use anything else now because it actually does what it’s suppose to do without any of the fluff.

  35. sonatak304 on September 25, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    How is it that Jen looks exactly the same as 12 years ago when we all started watching her channel. I’ll have whatever she’s having!

  37. Sereyroth Meng on September 25, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Could you please do holy grails for korean Vitamins C, sunscreen or any others products?

  38. ksyusha ksyusha on September 25, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Nice video, I also love GR watermelon lotion and my bf using the same hand cream at night and it’s the only hand cream he actually agrees to put on . Lol! I’m on Differing and had to change my skincare routine and still can’t find perfect mineral sunscreen . Any recommendations ?

  39. amydd100 on September 25, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Hi Jen, so nice to see you doing videos again, especially makeup and skincare although I loved your home videos as well. Can you please share what products you used for your lip look?

  40. FashionByAlly on September 25, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    can’t wait to try out of some of your favorites 🙂
