I used to use Erno Laszlo products in the 1980's. I just decided to try Laszlo again. Ordered what I used to use: Sea Mud Soap and Detoxifying Cleansing Oil. I have dry skin. This combo has made my skin look smoother, cleaner and just "unbelievable!" My skin never looked this good with other products. Maybe I will eventually turn back time to my 20's!! :)
"My face needed a cleanser like this! I loved the pink bottle it came in, it smells great and was very easy to apply. I use it at the end of the day to get all the make-up, dirt and grime off my face. My face is now smooth and hydrated!"
"I use the mask 2x a week and I feel like my entire face has been exfoliated, detoxed and tightened. It's healthier looking and feels smooth. I love the natural benefits of clay. My skin has been feeling like a dried out raisin the pore cleansing clay mask is a great remedy for distressed skin."
The dawn of a new decade is here and we’re renewing our commitment to cleansing. We started the concept that cleansing is the #1 way to keep your skin looking fresh, rejuvenated, and youthful. Dr. Laszlo inspired us all to take our skincare rituals very seriously and never skip this step. With the launch of our new cleansing bar packaging, we wanted to reset some of our founding skincare beliefs and bring cleansing back to the top of your skin resolutions for this new decade. Read on to discover the fun of cleansing and why you should try the Erno Laszlo Double Cleanse!
The Value of Daily Cleansing
Daily cleansing prevents clogged pores by washing away your makeup, but it has another benefit that is sometimes overlooked: the removal of environmental pollutants from your skin. Impurities can stick to our skin due to its n
Whether you’re a lifelong New Yorker or have adopted the city as your home, winter in the city can truly be a wonderland. From glistening snow dusting the tops of trees to the cozy feeling of escaping the cold with a warm cup of hot chocolate from Serendipity, New York is just as alive during the winter as any other time of year. We’re sharing some of our favorite classic winter activities in the city that actually never sleeps.
Skating & Sledding
Cabin fever is all too real, but you can fight it by heading outside to have the kind of fun you had as a kid. That’s right: it’s time to go sledding and skating – perfect for friend dates and romantic dates alike. Bryant Park is a great place to skate for free, especially during the week when it’s less crowded. If you want to avoid the winter crowds, head to the rink at Prospect Park. If you want to check out a newer spo
From the cookies to the champagne to the dreaded circles that tend to accompany staying up all night with friends you haven’t seen in months or even years, the holidays can be as stressful on your skin as to your mental health. Luckily, neither has to suffer. Keep reading for our tips on how to fight the unwanted effects that holiday fun can have on your skin.
Watch the sugar.
If you have a sweet tooth, the holidays can be tricky. Whether it’s your aunt’s famous pumpkin pie or your coworker’s baking hobby filling the office kitchen, it can be difficult to resist. The thing is, sugar is one of the worst sources of inflammation in the body, which can have unwanted effects on your skin. There’s a difference, however, between added sugars, such as those in most baked goods, and sugars naturally found in
Alongside the warm, fuzzy feeling of finding the perfect gifts and admiring the extravagant light displays during the holidays can come the potential stress of spending time with extended family. As wonderful as it is to see people from the far-flung branches of your family tree, it can also kick your neuroses into high gear. Will Aunt Linda grill you on why you’re not married yet? Is your youngest nephew’s terrible-twos phase still going strong? Of course you love your family, but you gotta love yourself, too. Take some tips from our guide to surviving time spent with your extended family and practice social self-care this holiday season.
Indulge your skin as preparation.
A sense of confidence can empower you to get through the night. In the spirit of inspiring self-confidence, take extra care with your skin as you get ready to head out. Start you

Ecommerce Manager Chelsea Olchowy could write a dissertation on her love of My Favorite Murder, which may not be new but is a perfect podcast for
This month’s Glowdown spotlights Lindsey Metselaar, founder of the podcast We Met At Acme. The arrival of autumn has put cuffing season on our minds, so we had to know more about what inspired Lindsey to launch a podcast about millennial dating in NYC. As a native New Yorker and CEO of her own social media management company (Lindsey's Lunchbox), we were thrilled to pick Lindsey’s brain about her career motivations, dating advice, and more!
What inspired you to create We Met At Acme?
I created We Met At Acme because I was newly single and in a position where I needed some dating gui
You have summer skincare needs, we have summer skincare answers. To help you combat the issues that can come up during the hottest season of the year, we’ve compiled the Summer Skin Bible. From sunburnt to dried out, we’ve covered all the possible scenarios your skin might come up against this summer – and the perfect solution for each one.
Sunburnt and Peeling Skin
You were in such a hurry to get outside that you forgot to grab sunblock. “I’ll be fine,” you think. Next thing you know, a few hours have passed and you’re red as a tomato. Peeling skin is in your near future.
Whether you forgot to reapply your SPF or to use it at all, there’s one thing you can always count on relieve and heal your sunburn: moisture, moisture, and more moisture!
If you’re prone to dry skin to begin with, considering adding our Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm to your skincare rit
Whether you snooze your alarm to the point of double digits or make it to the gym for the crack of dawn and still have time to spare, skipping your skincare routine should never have to be a part of your dressing up (or down) routine.
With the introduction of our new mini sizes (including our Hydraphel Skin Supplement, Firmarine Lifting Serum, Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30, Phelityl Night Cream, Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask, and Phormula 3-9 Eye Repair), you can take your whole routine to your morning workout - or any overnight activities the
You need your beauty sleep, yet when you close your eyes, your brain is racing and you just can’t slow down. Whether it’s due to caffeine, stress, or anything in between, everyone has struggled with falling asleep at some point or another. If that’s currently you, keep reading to find out how to defeat insomnia once and for all.
1. Decompress after a long day.
Sometimes the biggest sleep-killer is the fact that you haven’t given yourself time to properly wind down from your long, busy day. Meditate, get a facial, draw yourself a bath… these are all simple ways to practice self-care that are sure to help you lighten the load of your mind. When your body is naturally relaxed, it’s so much easier for your mind to follow suit.
2. Practice yoga before bed.
Yoga is so effective as a mental decompression tool that we decided to single it out. Pra

Whether you’re burning the midnight oil or getting carried away during an extra-long girls night out, sometimes you’re just not gonna get enough sleep. But what if you have an important date the next day? You just cannot look tired. Never fear – we’ve got your back with tips on how to look way less tired than you feel!
Don’t skimp on your AM routine.
First of all, you better start the day with a super-thorough take on your morning skincare routine. Here are some of our faves: our Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse, which combats dull skin by drawing out impurities; our White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel, which refreshes and renews tired skin; and our
If you think you need foundation, think again. We get it – it’s literally foundational for many makeup routines.

We’re all about confidence, so help take yours to the next level with our tips for transitioning into a foundation-free life!
Take it slow.
You don’t have to dive in headfirst. If you don’t feel comfortable abandoning foundation entirely, opt for lighter coverage such as tinted

Toner here, a cleansing bar there, and face masks everywhere: in the sea of skincare products on the beauty scene, we wouldn’t blame you if your bathroom has become a bit overwhelming. An organized bathroom won’t just look better, but it’ll help you streamline your skincare routine, too. As much as we love color-coordinated shelfies – and trust us, we do! – they might not be the most practical method, although definitely the prettiest.
If you can work in these efficient ways to organize your bathroom while maintaining color coordination for the perfect shelfie, you’ve hit the jackpot. Either way, try these out and you’ll never look back!
1. Keep daily-use products on the bottom shelf.
Let’s start with the most important shelf: the bottom shelf. Here is where you should keep the products that you use the most in your everyday skincare routine, such as moisturizers like the Firarmine Moisturizer SPF 3
The latest addition to our Hydra-Therapy line will be your first stop in the morning when time is tight and sacrificing your skincare routine is out of the question. We’re no strangers to dashing out the door in a rush (in fact it’s our M.O. more often than not) but our new Hydra-Therapy Foaming Cleanse is the gentle, quick 1-step savior for constantly busy (and chronically late) skincare enthusiasts. Not only that, the cleanser acts as a 2-1 makeup remover and will tackle any remaining makeup after a night out (and on that note, check out our Skincare Routine for Hungover Skin). When double cleansing is out of the question, our Hydra-Therapy Foaming Cleanse comes through.
We could not be more excited. It’s officially time to pack away your chunky sweaters and bulky winter coats. Spring, we’re here for you. We await you and all the great (and sometimes not-so-great) things that you bring. The temperamental weather or forecasts that guarantee frizzy hair days are less than ideal but beggars can’t be choosers and we’ve been begging for chirping birds and blooming tulips. While we will probably continue to procrastinate spring cleaning of our houses (Hey, at least we’re self-aware!), spring cleaning our skincare routines is always an exciting process (and great excuse to buy some new products!). We’ve laid out the swaps you should be making to transition your skin while the weather transforms from dry and harsh to moody and humid.
As you know by now, the Double Cleanse is the foundation of our skincare philosophy and always the first s
Buckle your seatbelts, make sure your seats and tray tables are upright and in the locked position and your skincare routine is stowed underneath the seat in front of you in your carry-on. We are taking off into the land of in-flight skincare routines (Yes, that’s officially a thing now.) so you can land with first-class skin after your next flight! Pack these TSA-approved essentials, pair with cheesy in-flight entertainment and combat the dehydrating, damaging environment up in the air like a true frequent-flyer.
For long or red-eye flights, we always recommend removing your makeup and any dirt or debris that has established temporary residence in your pores. Pack your favorite Double Cleanse Travel Set (depending on your skin type or the environment of your destination) and head to the airport bathroom a
We’ve added a new mask to our hydrogel collection and we have a feeling you guys will be fast friends. New to the hydrogel game? It’s essentially an upgraded version of the sheet mask. The difference is in the material. Instead of being made of cotton or fiber, our hydrogel masks are made from a slicker gel material that locks in moisture.
What: Our new Whiten & Brighten Hydrogel Mask instantly brightens dull skin and reduces the appearance of any pesky dark spots or aging.
Rich Essential Oils and Hydrators including Avocado, Chamomile and Peony nourish your skin.
Sunflower Seed Oil helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles as it protects skin.
Vitamin B3 prevents the signs of skin discoloration by suppressing melanin production for a glowing complexion.
We are so excited to launch our new Multi-Task Eye Serum Mask and to give you a little intro to what might be your newest favorite way to get your #LaszloGlow on.
What: Using our beloved hydrogel mask technology, we developed a mask specifically to target your eyes. The eye mask conforms to the contours of your eye to deliver an instant infusion of hydrating, healing, brightening nutrients into skin—de-puffing, smoothing, and making dark circles disappear! The mask is soaked in serum featuring a powerhouse of ingredients like…
Glycerin, a powerful moisture magnet, attracts and holds hydration, helping fill in fine lines and crow’s feet for softer, smoother-looking skin.
Vitamin B3, a natural illuminator, defies dark spots and discoloration by jump-starting skin cell renewal.
Gotu Kola and other anti-inflammatories calm stressed skin and improve circulation, reducing puffi
With the holiday season behind us (and with it the excuse to overindulge in all of our favorite guilty pleasures), we are in the market for a comprehensive detox to head into 2018 full steam ahead. Detox your mind, body, and skin with the below suggestions and you’ll find yourself back to looking and feeling your best. We can’t make any guarantees, but it will almost be like that month-long open bar didn’t even happen.
Our newest Hydrogel mask has quickly become a favorite of ours for its instantaneous results! Designed to break up dark spots and disrupt the appearance of uneven skin tone, the White Marble Hydrogel Mask delivers desperately-needed brightness to dull skin.

If your Google Calendar looks anything like ours, your social agenda is overflowing with dinners, parties, and invites of the holiday variety. Our theme for this season’s holiday look? Glow and glitter without giving off aggressive disco ball vibes. Unless your party happens to be ‘70s-themed and, if so, we say 1) go for it and 2) can we come?
We sat down with our glam guru of the office, Gina, to get all her expert advice on holiday party circuit essentials, which we’ve detailed out below. Watch our Facebook Live with her here if you want to get the full 411 (including what her favorite Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara dupe is).
Antioxidant Complex For Eyes: This will wake your eyes right up with a refreshing, cooling sensation (Pro Tip: Store in your refrigerator!) and is lightweight enough to layer your concealer or foundation on after without feeli
The holidays seem to be the time when you have a month-long lapse of judgement and forget that you’re not in college anymore. Oh, yeah. Our body cannot bounce back after a night of shots, champagne or even two glasses of vino. Even if you’ve been able to avoid the open bar situation at the influx of holiday parties, New Year’s Eve is looming around the corner and if you manage to get to 2018 without a hangover...well, you’re stronger than us and can you please slide into our DMs with your secret??
The hangover symptoms vary based on the person and their poison of choice from the previous night but what about when your skin is suffering from the same hangover? Waking up with a pounding headache and a churning stomach is exponentially worse when it’s accompanied with dull, parched, irritated skin. Lucky for you, we’ve got the hangover cure for you face mastered to a skincare science.
Okay, so this might be the trickiest part. We always swear to guzzle w
The holidays are upon us and, while it’s always a season of cheer, it’s also a season of indulgence and stress that can often wreak havoc on your skin. Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, we’ve got all of our essentials to keep your skin sane and end the year with a glowing, hydrated complexion. Only the strong survive but keep reading to equip yourself with everything you need for skincare survival!
The holiday season is a time of indulgence between the second (or third!) servings at Thanksgiving dinner, reuniting with old friends over cocktails and, of course, the holiday party circuit. Your skin is likely to be crying for help through it all. The charcoal in our Detoxifying Double Cleanse will draw out and trap all of these impurities while the seaweed and grape seed oil boosts circulation and renewal. Indulge away without worrying about dull, drab skin!
In case you haven’t noticed the influx of pumpkin spice that has taken over our entire universe (seemingly overnight!?), fall is here. Our fall skincare philosophy is well-aligned with our fall fashion philosophy: layers, layers, layers! ‘Repair and replenish’ is the name of the game when transitioning your regimen to match the dropping temperatures and drier atmosphere. With that in mind, we’ve curated the perfect routine to help your skin recover from the summer’s sun exposure and keep it hydrated and happy so that redness, irritation and dry skin stay away.
Cleanser - Hydra-Therapy Double Cleanse Cleansing is a year-round habit for us. We don’t dare go a day without double cleansing but during the colder months, we switch to our Hydra-Therapy Double Cleanse to hydrate our skin as much as p
