Shoppers Say They've Been Wrinkle-Free for 20 Years Thanks to This J.Lo-Approved Day Cream
For someone who's been in the public eye for more than 20 years, it still seems as though Jennifer Lopez hasn't aged a day since her 2002 Maid In Manhattan role. There's nothing wrong with aging, and Hollywood's representation of people wearing their years well is a balm to the issue of stars "aging out" of desirability. But the fact persists: At 51, J.Lo looks better than ever. And while she's now devoted to her own skincare line, shoppers say a German cream she once loved is a "miracle" for fine lines and dark circles.
Back when J.Lo Beauty was just a twinkle in her eye, Lopez revealed to Andy Cohen in 2014 that she was a longtime fan of Dr. Hauschka's Rose Day Cream. The full episode is no longer available, but Buzzfeed reports that, per Lopez, she'd been getting the Dr. Hauschka moisturizer from Whole Foods for about 10 years — and her skin predictably looked amazing from it.
She may have moved on since then, but Amazon shoppers most certainly haven't. The day cream has over 900 five-star ratings on the site, where people say that after using the moisturizer "for 20 years," they have no wrinkles to speak of. Even 69-year-olds write that it has made fine lines around their eyes and cheeks disappear, and their skin "has never looked or felt so good." The cruelty-free cream works so well, in fact, that one reviewer said "nobody believes" that they're actually 53 — even their dermatologist.

"This cream saved my skin. I have tried everything under the sun to try and cure my dry, dehydrated, acne-prone skin," another person wrote. "It truly is a lifesaver. My skin is seriously totally different. I can actually leave the house without makeup now and feel ok." That's probably thanks to the Rose Day's Cream ultra-nourishing formula, which draws on marshmallow root extract, shea butter, and avocado oil to hydrate, plus rose water and rosehips to soothe redness or irritation and add an extra dose of moisture.
Despite the $43 tag, shoppers say it goes toe to toe with ultra-pricey creams in the $100 range. One person thinks it's worth 10 times the price, while another compared it to La Mer's $190 formula. And you'll certainly get your money's worth, since users say it keeps mature skin hydrated for a full 12 hours.
If it's been a minute since you've browsed Whole Foods' beauty aisles, Dr. Hauschka is a pioneer in the clean beauty world. The brand forgoes synthetic fragrances and colors for ingredients that are certified petrochemical-free by the International Natural and Organic Cosmetics Association (NATRU), and sustainable sourcing is at the forefront: Ingredients come from biodynamic herb gardens, certified-sustainable German farms, and fair-trade global partnerships.
A number of customers add that they found the cream because of J.Lo, but she's not the only longtime enthusiast. The reviews are scattered with people writing of their 10+ year relationship with the rich and creamy moisturizer, with some going on 25 years together. Someone in their late 60s commented that they "look much younger" after 20 years of using the cream, and to top it off, the natural rose fragrance feels like they're sleeping next to a dozen roses nightly. In the words of one reviewer: "Works for J.Lo, works for me."
