Confession: I’m a product junkie, especially when it comes to skincare. I—against my better financial judgment—will buy a new cleanser or cream at the drugstore, try it out for a few weeks, and if I don’t see results, send it to the product graveyard (the bottom shelf of my bathroom cabinet).
But with fall comes new promises, and my end-of-summer goal was to find a skincare regimen I could get on board with and end my habit of serial product switching once and for all. So, needless to say, I was ecstatic when I found an experienced brand that gave me serious (and immediate) results: Erno Laszlo.
I owe 50 percent of my beauty to my mother and the other 50 percent to Erno Laszlo. – Audrey Hepburn
With clients like Jackie O., Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe, Dr. Erno Laszlo’s skincare philosophy was the secret weapon behind some of Hollywood’s most coveted complexions. His iconic products, which he initially brought to New York City in 1927, live on today at The Erno Laszlo Institute in SoHo. And if you’re not based in or around the Big Apple, don’t fret: The products are available online and at the Erno Laszlo Institute in downtown New York, as well as select Nordstrom locations (see stores near you by clicking here).
What made Erno Laszlo’s skincare regimen so popular amongst Hollywood starlets? It went beyond just quality products; it was about the method. Laszlo was the first dermatologist to create a skincare ritual, as women previously washed their faces with cold cream to remove makeup. (Ah, the good ol’ days of owning only one face product!) He emphasized the importance of cleansing with both oil and a bar in a two-step process, known today as the “double cleanse.”
The brand recently reinvented the double cleanse to cater to modern-day beauty clients. The products include four concern-specific cleansing duos (oil and a cleansing bar) that contain highly effective actives, delivering results you can instantly see and feel. Oil dissolves impurities on contact, and the bar emulsifies them into a rich cleansing mask, leaving no trace of dirt or makeup behind. Targeted treatments include:
- Exfoliate and Detox: for large and clogged pores, dull and flaky skin, and an imbalanced complexion. Contains charcoal, dead-sea mud, and grapeseed oil.
- Firm and Lift: for lack of firmness and elasticity. This anti-aging cleansing duo contains algae extract, shea butter, and jojoba oil.
- Hydrate and Nourish: for dry, dehydrated skin that is tight and lackluster. Contains antioxidant-rich rosemary extract, sunflower oil, and macadamia nuts.
- Soothe and Calm: for sensitive skin that has a red undertone, tightness, and irritation. Contains chamomile, coconut, and antioxidant-rich green tea.
To complement your cleansing ritual, Erno Laszlo offers intense hydrogel masks for more targeted treatment; age-defying, skin-smoothing serums; eye creams to smooth, brighten, and lift; and more than a dozen day and night creams to replenish, repair, protect, and promote continuous cell renewal.
And now, we’re partnering with Erno Laszlo to offer FIVE lucky readers a cleansing ritual worth up to $599, including:
- A double cleanse travel set based on your skin concern
