Who is Dr. Jen?

Everyone knows me as Dr. Jen, a moniker I picked up when I had a storefront in Seattle for several years. I am not an MD, I have a PhD in biophysics and biochemistry, hence the ‘Dr’ moniker (tbh, it makes me squirmy to be called Dr outside of a conference or a job interview, but it has caught on, and I can’t stop it now). I did my undergraduate work in pathogenic microbiology. Since 2007, I have been involved in creating skincare and cosmetics products that are safe, but also that work. My focus is on safety and efficacy, not on ‘natural,’ ‘organic,’ or whatever other marketing terms for woo bullshit they’re using today. My products have been created and developed by me, and are made by me in my Beauty Lab in weird-ass Rio Rancho, NM.

You educate us and provide good products to help our skin. You deserve all the kindness in the world. Having well taken care of skin helps us feel our best! ☺☺☺☺

I love your posts, products, and education. I tell everyone who wants to listen about your products. Sometimes they listen, sometimes they don't (sad face, for them not me). Keep it tight, girl!

I love you and your educational posts and your products! I am slowly improving/creating a skincare routine and it's thanks to you. (also that zit zapper is magic)

I love everything about you. Every. Little. Thing.

What you do DOES MATTER! And VERY IMPORANT to us. Don’t ever change!!

Thank you so much!❤️ PFM and The New 20 have made such a difference! P.F.M!

I definitely had like an hour long conversation with one of besties about you and your skincare line last night. I’ll do it any chance I get! Right Annastasia 😁🫶🏼🥰

Just got my order and once again thank you for the kind note and extra goodies!!! ❤️

Very exciting day yesterday, I received my products.

I adore you lady.

You make this shitty world a better place. ❤️

You are skincare mom! I left a note with my recent order because I knew without context it would cause a table or two to be flipped. ❤️

You are important

Love your posts and your products!

I love it when the hot pink box shows up on my doorstep! Thanks Dr. Jen!!

It does, and you are!! ❤

You’re a great person

I've learned a lot from you. Thank you for that.

Since April when I launched the new site, I have made, packaged, labeled, boxed, added samples, written a card, and shipped 1000 orders. For the first time since the new site went up, I have fewer than 200 open orders (198, but I’m counting it as a win) I would be more excited, but I’m friggin exhausted. Skincare Mom needs a joint and a nap. 😴 ... See MoreSee Less

BTW, my husband uses the co-wash for his scaly, irritated skin on his scalp, under his beard and his eyebrows. He has always had dandruff issues and has never gotten relief before like this. We were talking about it literally 20 minutes ago and he said "Have you ever told your Skin Mom how much that stuff helps me?". Thank you! Enjoy a break, you've certainly earned it! ❤️

eagerly and patiently awaiting my skin care package 🥰 i swear you’re super human sometimes but still human nonetheless. take care! 💗

I reordered WAY later than I should have, and my skincare sitch is getting a little scarce. 😂 That’ll teach me!!

Next time I pick up an order I’ll bring you one! 😂

I’ve been using my new products daily and it’s only been like a week since my package arrived but I am tell such a huge difference!!!! I’m obsessed!

I say that’s a win! You are appreciated.

I can't wait to get my stuff and get in on all the lovin'!!!

You're amazing ♡ thanks for working so hard to help our skin!

Omg, yay! You are awesome!

Our stuff came today!! My girlfriend and I’s skin rejoices!

Do you ship to Australia by any chance? I checked your site and it said NZ but not Australia

Girl, treat yo self to both

Here’s the thing, we love and missed you that much 🥹 I waited a bit bc I figured you’d be overwhelmed but had to pull the trigger when my eye cream and toner supply started looking bleak 😂😂😂😂 Not that I’m not missing my serums but now I know they’re the first I run out of!

Maybe you need an assistant?

Treat yoself 🙌

We appreciate you!

YOU ARE AMAZING! You are so appreciated!

I'd mail you one back but you know.... Legalities 😂

Enjoy some time to yourself.

We love you and everything you do.

Skin care mom is the best mom

Thank you!!!

Then you should do that! We all appreciate you!

My boss is kind of a bitch, but she did give me my birthday off work, so I will be largely unavailable today. 🤣 Everyone knows that your 52nd birthday is the ‘eat all the food’ birthday, so I kicked it off at my favorite breakfast place, Chocolate Maven. Later, I’ll be at a fancypants place that has an entire section of their menu devoted to potatoes. Gonna drink good wine and eat potatoes 7 ways. BRB. ❤️Skincare Mom ... See MoreSee Less

Hi! Two things before I start making product.
1) Do I have anyone here who is familiar with shipping via DHL? Where tf do you drop the package? The DHL website has sent me to a UPS store, the post office, and a probation office so far.

2. Yesterday someone posted a paper about collagen ingestion and skin, and even though I could swear I saved the link, I didn’t. I can’t find the comment either, bc FB sux. Can whomever posted the link send it via DM here so I can read it? Or, if you all can see the comment that I can’t find, can you msg me with it? Thanks!

My daughter's bow tie order for her wedding was delivered, but not to the correct address. Fortunately they sent a photo of the delivery, I searched the street to see if I could find the doorway. Nope. My daughter complained, and 3 days later it was retrieved and delivered correct. 🙂

In Seattle I go directly to the DHL location to ship. But I've also had them pick stuff up from me before to ship as well

We take them to a local shipping place that takes fedex, ups and dhl. We live in the “country” though and it’s our one stop shop. We don’t have a ups or fedex standalone. Maybe find a small town near you?

DHL left the United States domestically I thought but still services the US for international shipment delivery. I only get DHL from Indonesia, Thailand and China. When I receive it comes from DHL in Ohio and is dropped off by a random guy in a van (I’m in NY so this is weird). I do need to mail DHL soon and my personal plan was to just drop it off at a random local shipping center that accepts every carrier known to man 🤷🏻‍♀️

For number one, I would think the first two options are correct because they tend to use USPS to do the last part of the delivery. And the UPS store accepts USPS packages.

Google is out of date. It sent me to the old IRS office a few weeks ago. The IRS had moved.

When I ask The Google it tells me you can take D.H.L. packages to any U.S.P.S. office or any D.H.L. Shipping Center. When I Google that, it shows me this:

Pjörk is very good at hide and seek. 🤣🐷🐽🤦🏻‍♀️ ... See MoreSee Less

She will sit there with her head under the blanket until I say ‘What are you doing?’ and she pops out. It is funny every time.

My sweet boy Chop Suey loved to bury himself in the blankies!!! It’s been years since he went to hog heaven but I still miss him and his hilarious noises! Give Pjörk a belly scratch from me and ChopChop! 😍

My dog does this too. I'm pretty sure she thinks it makes her invisible like an ostrich 😂

Aw. Better than my morning of having a goat's eye sutured 🙄

Excellent pig name 10/10

My cat burrows too!

OMG her butt wiggles are so freaking cute

So cute!!


Haha I love her name


Maria LeMieux

Ryan Wallberg omg meet Pjork the pig 😍😂
