Erno Laszlo New York

  • How Do You Mask?

    The Laszlo Latest
    July 12, 2016

    Get the scoop on Erno Laszlo’s full line of masks (including our brand new Hydrogel Masks!) and find out how masking can help you treat your skin concerns.

    Here’s the skinny – masking is all the rage. You’ve probably seen people posting their masking selfies on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook… You name it. If all this masking has left you a little confused, we’ve compiled the ultimate masking guide to help you find the perfect mask for your skin.   

    Beyond The Selfie: The Sheet Mask

    Our White Marble Sheet Mask = instant gratification. Just apply your mask and indulge in some you time. Our suggestions? Meditation, reading, or maybe even binge watching Netflix. After 15-20 minutes, remove the mask for brighter, glowing skin. We like using this mask in the morning when we have a big day ahead, or after work to refresh before dinner with friends.

    In Perfect Form: The Modeling Mask

    Modeling Masks, like our Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment (aka our famous pink mask) are a must-have when prepping for any big event. Think: weddings, family reunions or holiday parties. When you apply our pink mask to the skin, it delivers intense moisture and calms the skin. This mask requires time to mix and apply to the skin. It is an extremely effective mask with real results but best used when you’re not rushing off to the next big thing. Some of our clients use this daily for a week or month to really hydrate, plump and renew their skin.


    The Perfect In-Between: The Hydrogel Mask

    When you crave the results of a modeling mask and only have time for a sheet mask, that’s where our NEW hydrogel comes in. It peels on and off like a sheet mask but the hydrogel gel material contours to the skin like a modeling mask. It is mess free and great at delivering a boost on the go. Both sheet masks and modeling masks require you to relax or they will get messy when you move around. With hydrogel, you can multi-task. The gel texture helps the mask stay put. So, take care of the vacuuming or cook dinner while you’re masking. You can always travel with a few. Since these masks are mess-free, toss one into your carry-on and  restore your skin in-flight when you get away this summer. Our hydrogel masks are designed to treat three specific skin concerns – delivering active ingredients to address how your skin is feeling.

     Exfoliate & Detox after a long weekend with friends.

     Soothe & Calm while in-flight to keep your skin hydrated and refreshed when you land.

     Firm & Lift when you need that extra boost to look your best.


    For The Long Haul: The Sleep Mask

    Sometimes life is too crazy for a 20 minute mask, that’s why we LOVE our easy, drama-free Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask. This is for those lazy nights where you know your skin needs hydration, but you don’t have time or energy for a full treatment. Simply apply to clean skin before bed and wake up to glowing, hydrated and calm skin. We recommend keeping this one on your nightstand and using it twice a week. It’s perfect after a long, stressful day.


    The Laszlo Latest #YouOnlyYou

    It’s summer, and we’re celebrating by sharing our best warm-weather skincare secrets. Get the inside scoop on how Lead Esthetician, Judit, Global Training Director, Hyang, and Senior Director of Digital, Catherine, care for their skin.

    Judit – Lead Esthetician at The Erno Laszlo Institute

    What is your must-have product?

    If I had to pick just one, I would choose the Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30. I was a sun worshiper in my youth, but now I would never leave the house without sun protection. It contains Spirulina maxima and seawater, so apart from the sun protection I am getting the nutritional benefit my skin needs to keep it firm and glowing.

    How do you adjust your ritual for summer?

    I always pay close attention to what my skin is telling me and adjust my routine accordingly. This adjustment could differ from year to year as our skin is constantly changing.  Recently I just swapped my Transphuse Line Refining Cream with the Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask. It has a lightweight gel texture that keeps my skin well hydrated overnight.

    What’s your #1 skincare tip for flawless skin?

    Don’t skip your routine. No matter how tired you are or how late you get home, always follow your daily ritual. One night is all it takes to clog pores, cause breakouts and lose the glow of your skin.  As Erno Laszlo famously said: “Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle.”

    What is your favorite summer get away or activity?

    I love driving, but I don’t have a car in New York. When I can, I’ll rent a car and go on random road trips for a few days. My plan for this summer is to explore upstate New York.


    Hyang – Global Training Director

    What is your must-have product?

    I am a frequent air-traveler with a busy lifestyle and at the end of the day, my skin gets very oily and dehydrated, leaving my skin feeling tight and uncomfortable. For years I’ve been looking for a perfectly balanced moisturizer that’s light and hydrating, and I’ve found it in the White Marble Translucence Cream. I love the luxurious, creamy texture and the refreshing hint of citrus. It’s not just a wonderful moisturizer, but a true skin brightener loaded with powerful antioxidants like Vitamin C and Chinese Plum. It keeps my skin hydrated and bright while I’m on the go.

    How do you adjust your ritual for summer?

    Extra sun exposure, heat and frequent cleansing makes my skin sensitive during the summer. Whenever my skin needs help, I put on the Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Mask to calm and soothe the skin. It is a fantastic rescue mask that works wonders in less than 20 minutes! It’s also an excellent mask to use after receiving treatments such as waxing and laser hair removal. In the summer, I’ll include more brightening products in my regimen. For example, the White Marble Treatment Bar keeps my skin cleansed, exfoliated and brightened, all in one.

    What’s your #1 skincare tip for flawless skin?                

    Honor your skin by nourishing it in two ways: topically and internally. Our skin is the first line of defense against environmental assaults. In order to defend our body, our skin needs constant nutrients, not only from topical products, but also from nutritious foods. A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables is crucial for good health and good skin.

    What is your favorite summer get away or activity?

    Terranea Resort in California is one of my favorite places on earth. It’s built on a bluff, so it has a breathtaking oceanfront view. I love hiking in Terranea while admiring the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. If I’m lucky, I’ll get to do some dolphin watching! It’s a gorgeous place.


    Catherine – Senior Director of Ecommerce and Online Partnerships

    What is your must-have product?

    This is a toss-up between the Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask and the Phormula 3-9 Eye Repair. I use Phormula 3-9 Eye Repair morning and night to keep my lids hydrated and looking refreshed on a daily basis. An esthetician once told me that eye cream is a must in your daily ritual from the time you are in your early 20’s, so I’m trying to make up for lost time! The Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask is great as I travel frequently, and I always apply it just before a long flight. I also use it bi-weekly when I’m at home to keep my skin hydrated, especially in the winter months.

    How do you adjust your ritual for summer?  

    I lighten up my routine. For skincare, I’ll swap out my serum/moisturizer/make-up routine for a serum/tinted moisturizer routine. I love Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum and always use it, regardless of season. I also like to switch from the hydrating double cleanse to using just the Phelityl Gel Cleanser. Of course, my moisturizer or tinted moisturizer must have an SPF, all year round.

    What’s your #1 skincare tip for flawless skin? 

    Don’t pick at blemishes! (I wish I was better at taking my own advice!)

    What is your favorite summer get away or activity?

    Road trips! I love taking off for the beach, going camping, or exploring a new city. Now that I live on the west coast, I’m looking forward to cruising the Pacific Coast Highway this summer.  Plus, I can travel by car with my Poodle/Bichon mix, Bernie. He’s the best navigator.

  • DAD - WE ❤ YOU

    The Laszlo Latest
    June 13, 2016

    So to celebrate, we’ve put together a few ideas for Father’s Day fun. We’re sharing some of our favorite spots in New York to treat your dad too, but we think as long as you do a little something to show the love, you’re golden.

    Let’s face it, dads are so much easier to please then moms. 


    You know him well, and there are some things that never change. A Mets vs. Braves game might be just the ticket to make his day, or even a trip to his favorite museum.  The Met has a great rooftop!  Want to do something really random but fun? A great haircut from the one and only Rudy’s Barbershop is something he won’t soon forget.


    Nothing says love like good food and drink, and a nice steak dinner with dad seems pretty fail-proof. The Old Homestead Steakhouse serves up the biggest, most delicious steaks in the city in a classic, old New York setting. We also love the 21 Club, a former speakeasy with a great vibe. If you want to go really old school, Pete’s Tavern is a casual, vintage bar with great burgers, and it’s also been around since 1864. If you’re looking for something a little trendier, try The Lucky Bee, a farm-to table Asian restaurant with fabulous curries and cocktails. 


    He might scoff at the idea of a bespoke facial at the Erno Laszlo Institute, but we guarantee that the moment his treatment begins, he’ll forget all about those hesitations! Why not surprise him this year, and even indulge him with an Institute membership? He’ll be so glad you did.  And if a facial is out of the question, give him a new shaving kit.  Our iconic Sea Mud Soap + Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil creates a great lather that softens the hair for a close shave while continuing to protect the skin from a sharp blade. If you are in SoHo stop by the Institute and one of our brand ambassadors will give your dad (and you) a free sample to try and a moment of celebrating 1927, when the brand launched.  It’s a beautiful 10,000 square space, with a vintage glam vibe.  Fun to pop on over. 

    So how are you planning to treat Dad this year? Share your Father’s Day photo on Instagram and tag us! @ernolaszlonyc #LaszloGlow #welovedad

    We’ve all heard it a million times, but it bears repeating: always wear SPF! No matter the time of year, even if it’s cold and cloudy, the sun can damage your skin. Anytime you’re outdoors, you should plan on applying sunscreen to areas that will be exposed to the elements. If you’re not sure why, we’ve got a few good reasons:


    Yes, we will all acquire a few lines and wrinkles as the years pass, but if you use sunscreen regularly, you will notice a huge difference in how your skin ages. Ever witnessed the skin of a sun worshipper or someone who doesn’t use sunscreen? The proof is truly in the (sun-protective) pudding!



    Freckles are cute. Dark spots are not! When sun damage turns into brown spots on your face, hands and chest, you’re seeing the sun exposure and sunburns of your youth coming back to haunt you. And the older you get, the more this damage becomes apparent. But all is not lost! Using sunscreen now will protect from further damage, and lucky for all of us, there are powerful skincare products available to correct and lighten skin in amazing ways.



    Ah, dry skin. In addition to causing wrinkles and dark spots, the sun also dries skin out considerably. When skin is dehydrated, wrinkles are enhanced and we can look older than we are. A good sunscreen will not only protect your skin from the sun, but will also keep skin moisturized and flake-free with an emollient-rich formulation.



    What else to say on this one? Nobody wants cancer. By simply applying sunscreen every day, you’re protecting your skin from cancer in the best way possible. If there was ever a reason to wear sunscreen, this is it.



    Firm & Lift: Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30

    Hydrate & Nourish: Phelityl Day Lotion SPF 15

    Repair & Rejuvenate: R.E.M. Day Lotion SPF 30

    Purify & Control: Oil Control Day Lotion SPF 15

    “Call your mother.” It’s something we hear all the time, and there’s a reason for that. Taking time on Mother’s Day to show the moms in our lives that we appreciate them is so important! Whether it’s your own mother, your mother-in-law, your best friend, or even yourself, this is the day we put aside to celebrate all the moms we know and love.

    Mother’s Day is one of our favorite holidays.  We have been sharing skincare through generations of mothers and daughters.  We hear over and over again the connection we are able to make on something so important and personal. 

    If you’re thinking of going beyond the usual Mother’s Day card and doing something special this year, we’ve got a few ideas to help you show your love in true New York style!



    For a truly indulgent way to say “I love you,” nothing compares to a day of beautifying. The Institute at Erno Laszlo offers a bespoke facial treatment tailored to your skin concerns.  It’s the first year we are offering this, book a session for mom and yourself and spend the day together, luxuriating your skin and slowing down your mind.   



    Nothing compares to a big celebration with family and friends. If you are creative (and daring) enough to cook a fabulous meal at home for a large group, this is the way to go. Of course, if you’re just too busy to host a gathering, brunch or dinner at the perfect restaurant is a great way to treat mom. Three of our favorite places in the city include Supper, Egg Shop and Buvette. Time to treat and be treated!



    While spa days and incredible meals are things we’d all love to enjoy and give, sometimes our finances nudge us in a different direction. It can be just as meaningful (if not more so), to simply spend time and express your love in a way that doesn’t involve spending a lot of money. Why not grab coffee or tea and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge together? There’s also the Highline and window shopping in the Meatpacking District. Just taking the time to be together can mean everything.



    If you’re a mom, you know how precious your alone time is. Why not treat yourself to a day out, doing what you love most? Maybe its yoga, going to the gym or a SoulCycle class. Perhaps you love going to bookstores and getting lost in a new book. Or, maybe you just want a day at home to take a bath, do your favorite mask and snuggle up with a magazine. Do whatever you want – you deserve it!

    Our guest this week is the lovely Sarah Kauss, founder of S’well Bottle, a company dedicated to reducing plastic on the planet through their gorgeous collection of insulated water bottles. We talk about what she’s looking forward to in NYC this spring, her daily diet and exercise regimen, and her unwavering dedication to hydration, inside and out.

    Personal questions

    What are five things you love right now in New York?

    Union Square Farmer’s Market - I pass it every day to and from work and it’s so nice to walk around now that it’s not bitter cold outside

    The S’well Roof - We have a built out roof on our building that only S’well has access to and we’ve already started having team lunches and eating Pinkberry up there together

    The Whitney Museum - It’s such a beautiful museum to get lost in on a Saturday afternoon

    Central Park - As it gets warmer, I can’t help but want to spend more time there just wandering around and people watching.  

    Drinking Wine Outside - We’re inching closer and closer to Rosé season, but I might have put some in a S’well and started a little early

    Best advice you’ve ever received?

    The best advice I’ve received is that it’s ok to say ‘no’. People who know me well know that I love to say ‘yes’, so I try to make ‘no’ a positive word in my day-to-day interactions.

    Is there any health trend you love right now?

    Though we love doughnuts in the S’well office, we’re trying to switch over to some healthy snacks. We just started doing monthly orders from and I am loving it. Snacking on nuts is not only delicious, but has a ton of health benefits. Raw nuts are filled with protein, fiber, unsaturated fats, and important vitamins and minerals.

    Your favorite dish or something related to food?

    I’m currently loving Rhythm Superfoods- dried broccoli! It was in the gift bags at this year’s TED conference and I can’t get enough of it.

    How do you stay in shape?  Your favorite places/things to do to work out?

    One of the benefits for S’well employees is an Equinox membership and it quickly became one of my favorite places to workout. Whether it be spending some time on the elliptical or choosing from their range of classes, I know I’m always going to break a good sweat when I go.


    Skincare questions

    How do you practice beauty from the inside out?

    Hydrating of course! I try to drink as much water as I can throughout the day. I don’t go anywhere without making sure my S’well is filled.

    What’s your go to product if you feel your skin needs a quick pick me up?

    I love Erno Laszlo’s Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm deep moisturizer. It’s very light and repairs my skin while I sleep.

    What are your morning and/or evening beauty ritual?

    Washing my face is one of the very first things I do in the morning using Erno Laszlo’s Phelityl Cleansing bar. It helps wake me up before I have my first cup of coffee. After a long day, I love to come home and take off the day using the Sea Mud Cleansing Bar, and if I have the time, put a face mask on. Not only is great for my skin, but it’s good quiet time for myself.

    If you could tell your 20-year old self one thing as it relates skincare, what would it be?

    I would tell myself that it is so important it is to find a regimen that works for you. I used to love trying all sorts of different products, but once I started investing in my skincare and using just the products that were right for my skin, I noticed a difference in the overall appearance.

  • Wonder Workouts & Glowing Skin

    The Laszlo Latest
    April 04, 2016

    One of the best things you can do to get that youthful glow and defy the aging process is exercise. Whether it’s yoga, running, cycling or gym time, working out is a no-brainer when it comes to looking and feeling vibrant. But could your workout be affecting your skin negatively?

    We talked to a few of our fanatically fit co-workers to hear all about their favorite ways to sweat it out, and how they keep that Laszlo Glow post-workout.



    I do a ton of walking in New York, so when I actually workout, I focus on cardio workouts like Peloton Cycle. I just joined ClassPass and can’t wait to try new classes throughout the city! I tend to have sensitive skin that will break out easily. The combination of studio-provided towels and shared equipment doesn’t help. I bring the Sea Mud Detoxifying Cleansing Ritual Trio to wash and tone my face right after each class. This trio provides a deep cleanse but also calms my sensitive skin. I always follow with REM SPF30 before leaving the gym. It gives me the moisture I need, plus I never skimp on the sunscreen!



    I love FlyBarre classes. They give me great results and are incredibly challenging. I never leave for a class without Anti-Blemish Beta Wash in my bag. This cleanser is perfect for acne prone and oily skin! I love using it on those days I have an extra-tough workout and want to wash my face afterwards, or plan to go from my workout to meeting a friend. It makes my skin feel so refreshed, and enhances my post-workout glow.



    For me, it’s hot yoga and Pilates all the way. I love Y7 Studio for yoga. It mixes traditional yoga with Hip Hop music! Gramercy Pilates always has a class available so it's my go to spot for a quick pick-me-up class. Both are so rejuvenating and make me feel really strong and lean without building too much muscle. The Pilates machines often make my hands dry, so I always have Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm in my workout bag. It’s so rich and heals dryness quickly. The heat from the yoga class can also dry my skin out. I make sure to replenish my skin’s glow with Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Bar post workout. For an extra boost I use Hydra-Therapy Sleep Mask. When I use this mask I always wakeup with plump, hydrated skin.

  • Get that Wedding Season Glow

    The Laszlo Latest
    March 25, 2016

    The season for exchanging vows is upon us and we all know what that means: revamped regimens to help us look and feel our absolute best. Whether you’re getting married, playing bridesmaid or attending as a guest, weddings give us a great reason to start a new program. We want to trim down to look fabulous in that dress, eat nourishing foods to keep our energy levels up, and take immaculate care of our skin so we can glow, glow, glow on that very important day!


    Three months might seem like plenty of time to prepare for the big day, but trust us, this time will fly by and you’ll be glad you started early. Start cutting out foods that might bloat you, like dairy and gluten. These foods can also cause inflammation in the body and lead to acne, so they’re best avoided as much as possible. Kicking off a new workout routine now will also pay off down the road, as will working out at least four times a week. Remember to keep up your twice-daily cleansing ritual and also incorporate a weekly mask, like our White Marble Sheet Mask or the Luminous Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel.


    Halfway there! Hopefully you’ve stuck with eating better, working out more and pampering your skin, because now it’s time to really kick it up a notch. Boost your workouts by increasing to 5-6 days at the gym per week or extending your current workout by 15 minutes or more. If you can, cut out sugar and alcohol. The extra calories and bloat aren’t worth it, and both can make skin look sallow and dehydrated. You’ll notice a real difference in how you look and feel.


    At three weeks out, you should be looking and feeling great. If those last few pounds are refusing to let go, or your skin seems to be having a “moment”, a tried-and-true solution is a cleanse and detox for the whole body. You can do a juice cleanse, take cleansing supplements, or try a new eating plan according to what you know works for you. Just be careful and consult your doctor before you start! We love doing a juice cleanse for 3-5 days; it really jumpstarts your energy and fat-burning power.


    Almost there! Hopefully you’ve stuck with your program, and if you have, you’re probably feeling pretty amazing. This is the week to keep things going, but also make sure to take some time to relax. If you’re in New York, this is the perfect time to schedule a bespoke treatment at The Erno Laszlo Institute. Your skin will love you for it.

    Ready to rehydrate and replenish skin after a long winter’s nap?

    It’s time to bring skin back to life with a mega-dose of much-needed moisture, and we’ve got the perfect solution: the Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment Daily Hydration Mask.

    We love this best-selling mask for so many reasons. Similar to the ever-popular rubber mask, its texture is unlike anything we’ve used before. It has a fabulous cooling sensation on the skin and is a breeze to peel off once it dries. It’s also just so much fun to mix and apply! Our secret weapon to boosting its hydrating and firming effects? Apply a serum before doing the mask, and you’ll see even better results! Depending on what you’re looking for, we have a few ideas to help you make the most of your mask and give it a beautifying boost.


    Want to supercharge skin with intense moisture and potent anti-aging nutrients? Try layering on Hydra-Therapy Refresh Infusion before your mask. It’s a super-light, silky serum that feels like a dream and goes above and beyond to help skin preserve precious moisture. It really helps reverse the damage from long-term dryness, very common in the winter months.


    We can’t say enough about the damage-defying powers of our new White Marble Collection, and the Radiance Emulsion is no exception. This is a staff favorite due to its silky, fast-absorbing texture and ability to work deeply to recharge dull, discolored skin and banish dark spots. If your post-winter skin is looking a bit tired, try White Marble and bring on the brightness!


    Our go-to serum and a classic in the Erno Laszlo family is Transphuse Rapid Renewal Cell Protocol. It always gives us great results. It turns back time with nutrient-rich active ingredients reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, while repairing and preserving the skin’s natural vitality. This one always gives us that unmistakable glow.

    Spring is finally on its way and if you’re feeling anything like us, it can’t come soon enough! The cold winter weather has us eager for spring’s arrival and the fun that goes along with the season’s quintessential getaway: Spring Break!

    And while we’re sure you won’t neglect your skincare ritual during your travels (right?!), we’ve got a few ideas to give your routine the extra boost it needs while you’re on the go.



    If there’s one thing we’re stocking up on for our travels, its sunscreen. Whether you’re taking a sun-drenched beach vaca or hitting the slopes for some downhill skiing, this is a no-brainer. Every day, you should apply a sunscreen that’s at least SPF 30 to keep sun damage and aging at bay. Our favorites include Firmarine Day SPF 30 for drier skin and Oil Control Day Lotion SPF 15 for oilier skin that needs a lighter touch, followed by a stand alone sunscreen if you are going to be outdoors for an extended period of time (and re-apply often!).



    It’s far too easy for skin to get dehydrated while traveling. Air travel is known for dehydrating skin and depleting moisture, and we often don’t drink enough water while we’re jet-setting. Keep drinking that water! Beyond that, our Refresh Infusion is a lovely solution to in-flight dryness or if you’re planning to spend time in a drier climate. You can apply the Hydra-Therapy Sleep Mask while in-flight to ensure your skin stays moisturized and glowing.



    It happens: you spend a lovely day at the beach and now you’re left pink with a sunburn! The solution: apply Skin Vitality Treatment for an instant cooling effect and follow it with a rich, moisturizing balm like Phormula 3-9. Be gentle with your skin and always reapply sunscreen after swimming or being out in the sun for more than a couple hours. Sun protection breaks down quickly in water and also loses its power to protect skin from sunburn after a certain amount of time.

    Enjoy your travels! And remember to keep skin healthy, protected and nourished–wherever the week takes you.
