We all know that The Morning Show star Jennifer Aniston’s beauty icon status started with a haircut. When she rose to fame on Friends, her blonde hairstyle – affectionately named ‘The Rachel’ after her character on the hit ’90s TV show – instantly became iconic, and fans scrambled to get the look.

The must-have hairstyle turned her into an instant trendsetter and she now even has her own hairstyle brand, Lolavie. But rather than opting for eye-popping red carpet looks and hair switch-ups every other month, Jennifer tends to keep her beauty looks consistent and with an understated glam vibe at red carpet events and in everyday life.

And the beauty products she swears by are clearly working. Jennifer’s skin always has a major glow and her blonde locks look incredibly healthy and full of body.
The TV icon doesn’t always spill her beauty secrets, but every now and then she reveals her skincare heroes. So, I rounded up a few of the beauty products she swears by, from a splurge-worthy luxe gold sculpting bar to a facial cleansing bar that’s a budget drugstore buy, take a peek at what the starlet loves to use in her beauty regime.
Gold Sculpting Bar – Jennifer Dempsey
Jennifer told Vogue she swears by pro makeup artist Jennifer Dempsey’s Gold Sculpting Bar, which helps tone, lift, and contour the skin. It’s also great for reviving tired, puffy skin around the eyes.
Jillian Dempsey Gold Sculpting Bar, £188 /$195
Concealer – Clé de Peau Beauté
The actress also swears by Clé de Peau Beauté concealer and told Marie Claire Australia that if she could only have five makeup products in her makeup bag that would be one of them. It conceals dark circles and blemishes, has long-lasting full coverage, and gives a smooth, seamless finish.
Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer, £55 / $75
Hair Mask – Olaplex
She might now turn to her own brand of hair care, but Jennifer has long been a fan of Olaplex hair masks. “I use an Olaplex hair mask once a week and I often let my hair air-dry to avoid damage caused by hot styling tools,” she previously told Marie Claire Australia.
One of the most popular is the brand’s No. 3, which strengthens the hair from within, reduces breakage, and improves its appearance.
Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector, £17 / $30
Drying Lotion – Mario Badescu
There’s a pimple-zapping lotion that’s become a cult beauty fave among celebs like Kylie Jenner, Drew Barrymore, and more, and Jennifer swears by it too.
When she gets a pimple (Yes, even Jennifer gets them), the actress told Elle: “First I roll my eyes and get annoyed, and usually I will put some sort of a drying lotion on. I don’t pick it, although I used to. Mario Badescu has a great drying lotion that I used for years and years.”

Collagen Powder – Vital Protein
Jennifer is a big fan of Vital Protein Collagen Powder which is great for supporting healthy hair, skin, nails, and joints.
Jennifer previously revealed that her “go-to” collagen routine includes adding Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides in her morning cup of coffee or smoothie.
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Powder, £20.33 / $24.98
Nano Current Device – ZIIP
Jennifer is also a big fan of facialist Melanie Simon’s ZIIP nano current device. “I have never seen such a result from a little machine like that,” she revealed. The original GX and OX devices, though, have now been replaced with the new ZIIP Halo. The wireless device delivers the benefits of an electrical nano-current facial at home, and when used regularly with the ZIIP Conductive Gel treatment, can help prevent and reverse signs of ageing, decrease on-set acne, smooth the eye area and promote supple glowing skin.

Facial Cleansing Bar – Neutrogena
Much like her wardrobe, Jennifer’s beauty routine is a mix of high and low. The actress told Forbes in 2015 that her skincare routine is “actually quite simple.”
She continued, “It’s been pretty much the same routine for a long time since I’m a creature of habit. I wash my face with my Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar, and then I usually use a toner, whatever toner of the month I’m using. And serum, depending on what serum I’m using at the time.”
The Hollywood star added: “I would say do a scrub three times a week to really get your skin clean. Hydrate—obviously drink, drink, drink lots of water. And moisturize. And I’m going to throw a fourth one in and say sleep.”

Moisturizer – Aveeno
Those budget-friendly products also come in handy when she’s doing spa days at home. The Aveeno spokeswoman told Shape in 2017: “Sunday is my spa day. I usually do a little mini-facial time where I just give myself a good scrub, use a mask, and then the Aveeno Positively Radiant Hydrating Facial Moisturizer. I leave it on overnight and when I wake up I have that dewy, glowing, twinkling skin.”
Aveeno Overnight Hydrating Facial Moisturizer, £29.99/$14.52, Amazon
As for that facial scrub, in 2014 Jennifer told Women’s Health she suggests doing “a scrub three times a week to really get your skin clean.” She added that she likes the Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub.
Moisturizing daily and sunscreen are also key, Jennifer told Forbes. “I use my Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer, which has SPF 15 — I usually mix that into Aveeno sunscreen. So I mix them together and put them on my face; psychologically, it doesn’t make me feel like I’m loading on layers and layers of cream. That’s about it!”
Sunbathing is one of her biggest vices, Jennifer told Refinery29 in 2017, so she considers Aveeno SPF 50 sunscreen a huge skincare essential. She also uses aloe vera from her garden after sunbathing.
Eye Mask – Shiseido
The actress’s skincare regimen also includes high-tech tools. When Vogue asked how she manages to look so great in the wee hours of the morning, she replied “eye masks and cryo sticks”.
Jennifer’s eye mask of choice is said to be Shiseido’s Benefiance Pure Retinol Eye Mask – a celeb fave thanks to its ability to smooth crow’s feet and plump fine lines.
Shiseido Eye Mask, from $20 for 3 sets
Clay Mask – Charlotte Tilbury
As for the beauty products she buys over and over again, Jennifer told Refinery29 that there are many face masks she can’t live without. “There are so many wonderful ones out there,” she said, adding, “Charlotte Tilbury has a great one right now.”
Goddess Skin Clay Mask, £40 /$58, Charlotte Tilbury
Anti-blemish mask – 111Skin
Jennifer posted a pic of herself wearing 111Skin’s Anti Blemish Bio Cellulose Facial Mask on Instagram, as she prepped for the Emmys in 2021.

Hair Care – Lolavie
Jennifer launched her own beauty company, Lolavie, back in 2021 and fans couldn’t stop raving over the first product drop – the Glossing Detangler. It’s a lightweight spray that helps detangle, enhances shine, smooths, and protects against damage with natural products like lemon extract and chia seeds.
