If you’re an avid follower of Jennifer Rock, aka The Skin Nerd, but haven’t taken the plunge with her skincare line yet, you’re in luck. The brand is introducing new refillable, easily recycled versions of her Key 4 products; cleansers, the pre-serum, serum and SPF. With the rebrand, the products with the older packaging are going for 50% off on her online store theskinnerd.com. We’ll be honest, you’ll have to be quick on this one - the SPF has already sold out.
