About Jennifer Rock
AKA The Skin Nerd
CEO & founder of The Skin Nerd® online skin consultancy and the Cleanse Off Mitt® makeup removal tool
We have recruited a team of skin analysts with internationally recognised qualifications and decades of experience in the industry cumulatively.
Prior to hitting the video calls, our Nerdettes go through an intensive, The Skin Nerd specific 4 week training course, which is continuously refreshed throughout the year with new information.
Our Nerdettes are real, fun, personable humans. They are not artificial intelligence… Well, you can’t prove that anyway.
Hailing from Sweden, Benjamin is a vitamin A connoisseur and trained makeup artist. He loves cats and techno music and makes a mean rabarberpaj – rhubarb pie, for those who ain’t in the know.
Our education co-ordinator, Grainne, hasn’t only lectured in skin but in a past life, she was a secondary school teacher! Pens at the ready. When she’s not in Nerd HQ being a fountain of knowledge, she’s plane-watching or crafting bits for baby showers!
Kate is our resident drama queen – she adores singing, dancing and playing music. When it comes to skin, she believes that connecting with the hooman and understanding how emotion is playing a part is integral to results!
Having been a skin lecturer, Lisa is well used to educating on the skin. As a teen, when all of her friends were spending their pocket money on makeup, she was saving it up to get the best skincare she could afford! Outside of skin, Lisa loves a good horror film and reading true stories.
Sarah, our performance co-ordinator, was drawn to the skindustry due to suffering with her own skin and because of this, she is a pro with those who are acne-prone. She loves doing yoga and walking her dogs.
Shannon is unanimously the peppiest of the Nerdettes - don't worry, the other Nerdettes agree. She is a ray of sunshine that loves motivational reads, talking about antioxidants and creating at-home spa experiences.
