Erno Laszlo New York

The ritual

A personalized System for Balanced Skin

Tailored to each of the seven Erno Laszlo skin personalities, The Ritual ensures thorough cleansing, gradual exfoliation and the stimulation of circulation to the skin, to impart the famous "Laszlo Glow." Performed twice a day, The Ritual gives skin a 24-hour cycle of continual, gentle conditioning and renewal.

The four steps

Erno Laszlo’s Twice Daily Regimen of Care

  1. Step 1

    Cleanse

    The cornerstone of the ritual

    Combine your prescribed cleanser with the Erno Laszlo Splashing Technique to exfoliate, oxygenate and stimulate blood flow. This step prepares skin to fully benefit from toning and moisturizing.

  2. Step 2

    Tone

    Treatments that balance

    Erno Laszlo toners balance your skin's pH, attract and bind moisture to the skin and provide lasting absorption of excess oil. A quick sweep primes the skin for moisturizing.

  3. Step 3

    Moisturize

    Feel smooth and look flawless

    Day moisturizers quench and protect, while night moisturizers repair and replenish your skin as you sleep. The result is round the clock hydration and cell renewal.

  4. Step 4

    Finish

    80% treatment - 20% finish

    Our tinted finishing formulas both treat and cover—controlling surface oils, tightening pores and providing a sheer, matte finish that allows your natural radiance to shine through.

The 30 splashes

ERNO LASZLO'S TWICE DAILY REGIMEN OF CARE

  • Deeply and thoroughly cleanse the skin
  • Exfoliate skin cells and flush out toxins
  • Plump and soften the skin
  • Exercise and strengthen the capillaries
  • Accelerate cell renewal
  • Enhance the absorption of moisturizers
