Let Me Introduce You To: Erno Laszlo

erno laszlo skincare review

If you have ever wondered what do Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Greta Garbo have in common, aside from being world treasures and icons of beauty and fashion, then you came to the right place. In today's post I am going to talk about Hollywood's A-list skincare brand, as well as maestro himself, Erno Laszlo.

About the Brand

Before moving to New York and working with Hollywood celebrities, Dr. Laszlo was already famous in Europe for healing acne of Princess Stephanie of Hungary and pioneering a plethora of groundbreaking formulations and products for various skin types. He is the father of the "double-cleansing" concept (which I swear by) as well as customized cleansing oils, bars, SPF and acne-prone skincare products. So, next time you look at your cleansing oil, you might as well send Dr. Laszlo a [cosmic] kiss.

My Skin

Skin type: Dry, dehydrated, sensitive. Concerns: dryness, texture, clogged pores.

Double Cleansing

If you have been here before (welcome back!), then you already know just how much I believe in double cleansing. In case you are new to the concept, here is how it works: at first you dissolve grease, melt makeup and lift impurities by using a cleansing oil (or balm); but since there is still quite a bit of grime left, you then use a second-step cleanser (could be a micellar water, liquid creme/gel cleanser or good old bar) in order to further purify, refresh and rejuvenate your skin.

Erno Laszlo has curated a one of a kind double cleanse skincare regimen back in the 1930s, offering special solutions for people with different skin concerns. I guess, you can already tell that this brand was never a one-trick pony. If you also have a Sahara-skin (just like moi), then Hydra-Therapy Collection is what you need to look at.
