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."
Except for Jared Leto who literally emerged from a 12-day desert meditation retreat into a swiftly changing world, we’ve all had Coronavirus on our collective minds for the past few weeks. At Erno Laszlo, we’ve all joined the collective fight against it as well, by practicing social distancing and following all the CDC’s recommendations for handwashing and other cleaning measures. And just like everyone else, we’ve been stressed about it all.
The good news is that we’re all in this together, and we’re here to share our favorite tools for calming our racing minds during this unprecedented time. Today we’re talking all things meditation: what it is, how it works, and how its benefits can help you now more than ever. Step away from the newsfeeds, turn on some soothing New Age tunes, and prepare to relax.
Meditation is particularly helpful now because it is

Is it just us or does no one seem to be getting enough sleep anymore? With only so many hours in the day – we’re looking at you, Type As and workaholics – multi-tasking while catching those few precious Zzz’s can totally help you rest (even) easier. Sleep itself helps your body recover, while overnight skincare can do the work you don’t quite have time for during the day. To multi-task and wake up refreshed, we’re launching our AHA Resurfacing Sleep Serum!
What Is It?
Our AHA Resurfacing Sleep Serum is a powerful skin resurfacing exfoliating treatment with the potency of a peel in the form of a delicate and gentle serum. It’s a fuss-free overnight boost that deeply clarifies, detoxifies impurities, and helps cal
A new year is here and it has never looked so bright! As the world continues to change and society at large becomes increasingly more conscious of the environment, Erno Laszlo is striving towards continual growth of our own awareness and responsibility to both the planet and our loyal customers. We care about the planet as much as you do. When we did a survey last spring, many of you inspired us to make all the moves we are making in 2020 and beyond.
We are excited to announce Erno Laszlo’s Clean Promise, which is our take on clean ingredients and our commitment to having all our products clean by the end of 2020. We started this journey back in 2009 and are now moving into the final stages, making us one of the first heritage brands to update their entire range.
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
This year, our holiday campaign Laszlo For All was inspired by brand self-reflection and discovery. We launched our new website this past summer, redefining our take on beauty and how we fit into the dynamic, every changing landscape. We have a beautiful 92-year-old heritage, the legacy of a doctor whose goal was to make women look and feel beautiful from day one and products that deliver on their promise. But wow, how things have changed since our launch in 1929.
Three years ago, we started asking ourselves a few big questions. What’s next? How do we fit into the skincare conversation? What do our customers expect from us? We met and listened to all kinds of customers living across the globe with different skin, ethnicities, age groups and life choices. We enjoyed hearing all their stories so much we created our entire Real Skin, Real Stories campaign around them.
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
Autumn is officially here and we are ready to curl up with a book we can’t put down, binge our favorite podcasts, and check out some of the most intriguing new films and TV shows coming out this fall. From the things that we’re looking forward to the most to the favorites we can’t stop listening to, check out what we’re obsessed with this season, as selected by our digital team: Ecommerce Manager Chelsea Olchowy, Social Media Manager Stephanie Rosen, and Social Media and Influencer Coordinator Adriana Autie..
Chelsea’s Pick: My Favorite Murder – Out now
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
The leaves are changing colors. Skeletons and pumpkins are taking over store shelves and front porches. Sweaters and scarves are blissfully back in action. Family get-togethers are on the horizon. There’s only one thing left: a partner to enjoy (and get through) it all with. Cuffing season is officially upon us.
If you don’t know what cuffing season is, you’ve either been in a relationship for the past ten years or aren’t into the dating scene. For anyone who hasn’t heard the term, it refers to the time of year starting around October and ending around March when single people start yearning for that certain someone to hang out with during the cold winter months, a plus-one for all the inevitable seasonal festivities as well as someone to rewatch The Office with for the billionth time. “Cuffing season” first appeared in Urban Dictionary in 2011, and by now it’s become a full-fledged wintertime dating phenomen
Here’s a secret about us: we’re kind of obsessed with astrology. (Who isn’t, though?) Then again, it might not be much of a secret, considering our Summer Skincare Horoscopes and Chinese Zodiac Horoscopes. Now we’re turning the astro-spotlight specifically on our best-sellers – turns out, there’s an Erno Laszlo must-have that perfectly corresponds with each sign of the zodiac. Which one are you?
An intense sign deserves a powerful product. With innovative detoxing abilities from charcoal that draws out impurities while refining skin, an AHA Fruit Blend that remove
Whether you’re young or old, two decades into your career or diving in headfirst, life is going so well – until all of a sudden, it’s just not. You spend all day working super hard, dip out for a quick dinner, and then head home and continue the hustle, whether it’s a side project or more work from your day job. Maybe there’s something amazing going on that your friends insist you have to check out, except that this keeps happening every single night. (At least, that’s how it feels.) Then comes a day when you realize how incredibly tired you are all the time. You keep working, but it’s lost the meaning. You’re always on edge, feeling cynical toward everything, and wondering why you even bother. What is going on?
What is burnout?
If you’re feeling this way, know that you are so not alone. One Gallup poll that surveyed 7,500 full-time employees found that 23% of them feel burned out often or always, while 44% feel burned out sometimes. That’s so close t
Your eyes are not deceiving you – our new Multi-Task Eye Gel Cream has arrived! We’re excited to expand our eye care offerings and share more about our new eye gel cream, conveniently (and gorgeously) housed in a slim rose gold pen. From how it’s formulated to how you should use it, we’re putting the spotlight on our latest piece of #EyeCandy!
What Is It?
Our Multi-Task Eye Gel Cream is a revolutionary pressed serum that dramatically diminishes the appearance of dark undereye circles, bags, puffiness, and fine lines. The result is a totally refreshed, revitalized appearance – no one will suspect that you spent all night hustling on your next project, scrolling through Instagram, or staring at the ceiling because you just couldn’t fall asleep.
The curved tip of the hygenic applicator is precise, comfortable, and simple to use, producing an effect similar to gently massaging t
When your entire company is named after a specific individual, you know that person must have been a vital force. We’re honored to keep alive the legacy of Dr. Erno Laszlo himself. July marks his birthday month (July 11th, to be exact), providing a perfect reason to celebrate his many accomplishments as a leader in the skincare space.
A Brief History of the Good Doctor
Born and raised in Hungary, Dr. Laszlo studied skin pathology and skin disease in Budapest and finished his clinical studies in Berlin under Professor Max Joseph, the father of modern dermatology.
Dr. Laszlo was a true master of medicine, pioneering many innovative products while introducing specific formulations to treat a variety of skin conditions. A man of firsts, the doctor established the concept of a “ritual” skincare routine with
We’re excited to announce the latest addition to the Erno Laszlo product family: our brand new Hydra-Therapy Gel Cream! We couldn’t be more proud, as this is our first product made entirely with clean ingredients that adhere to the Sephora Clean Ingredient List.
What Is It?
Our Hydra-Therapy Gel Cream is a long-lasting, moisturizing gel cream that deeply hydrates while rapidly absorbing into the skin. Delivering a silky smooth, matte finish, this light cream helps reduce the appearance of pores and quenches dry skin. It’s residue-free, effectively weightless, and infuses skin with antioxidants, sans oiliness. The end result? A fresh, healthy complexion.
A summer sorbet for the skin, this cream feels like a cooling gel – which you’ll appreciate even more on those hot summer days! On top of the cooling effect, it provides 24-hour hydration to keep your skin feeling moisturiz
Cosmetic masking as a beauty ritual is truly as old as time. From ancient cultures to modern life, masking has been a vital part of skincare routines.
5,000 years ago in India, women who practiced the Ayurveda medicinal tradition used ubtan face masks made by mixing plants, roots, flowers, and herbs, with different ingredient configurations based on skin type. Fun fact: ubtan masks are actually said to be the very first cosmetic product ever used, globally!
Other parts of the ancient world were just as entranced with face masks. In Egypt, the first face masks were made of clay, much like our own Pore Cleansing Clay Mask. Cleopatra herself is said to have used a mask made of Dead Sea mud! (You know where else you can find Dead Sea mud? The iconic EL Sea

Need a fresh way to detoxify your skin? Love trying new masks? Is clay your favorite skincare trend? Feast your eyes (and skin) on our brand new Pore Cleansing Clay Mask! A perfect post-cleanse addition to your bespoke skincare ritual. The special blend of natural cleansing materials is ideal for a variety of needs no matter what your skin type.
Harnessing the natural benefits of clay, this detoxifying mask is the perfect antidote for stressed-out skin. It helps remove impurities without drying skin, infuses moisture as it draws oil and dirt from your pores, while leaving your face feeling smoother, more even-toned, and glowing with health.

Come February and everyone’s got love and romance on the mind. As one of the coldest months of the year, the timing is actually ideal for spicing things up. But whether or not you’re partnered up, it’s also a great time to focus on yourself. This Valentine’s Day, don’t wait for flowers or candy. You deserve to treat yo’ self and your skin – do it the bright way with Erno Laszlo!
1. The Classic
Give your self-care a glamorous Hollywood touch with our iconic Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar. A Laszlo original, this cleansing bar goes deep with mud from the Dead Sea, a “miracle” of nature with its 26 minerals that help protect and restore skin’s own mineral levels. Plus, the bar’s black color just looks cool – the perfect way to make your shelfies instant classics.
We know that everyone has their own unique skin concerns; that’s why we created the skin assessment test! Whether you’re dealing with dryness or dark spots, our skin quiz is designed to help you figure out which Erno Laszlo products will give your skin the glow you desire.
Now we’ve taken it a step further and built some nighttime ritual collections that specifically target all your nightly skin concerns. What’s missing from yours? Find out more about each collection below!

Do you love the idea of double cleansing but end up reaching for a quick 1-step cleanser more often than not? Being on the extra side, we hate having to forfeit a deep double cleanse in the name of saving time and energy. It’s just not a life we want to live! You asked us for a cleanser that does double the work but doesn’t expect the same of you, here it is. Skincare enthusiasts, please welcome our revolutionary Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse to the family! The cleanser will expedite your skincare routine without compromise plus the build-to-travel packaging can be thrown in your gym bag, overnight bag, or live anywhere you would use a one-step cleanser. Here’s what it’s about:
Our Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse is a one-of-a-kind gel cleanser that combines the powers
Big changes are on the horizon as we move into the final stages of summer. These new developments will affect your financial life, relationships, and consequently - your skin! Use the upcoming astrological forecast to your advantage, starting with changes to your skincare routine.
The more reflective and reserved headspace you’ve been settled into recently is lifting off with the Sun moving into Virgo on the 23rd. Incorporate our White Marble Vitamin C Peel exfoliator into your routine to shed your figurative and literal skin as you commemorate this social and psychological rebirth. You may still be feeling somewhat low-key as you work your way into this new period, but if a grand entrance is what you seek, follow up your cleansing and exfoliation ritual with our Lighten &a
In the war against wrinkles, we want to arm you with a few skin-saving strategies that don’t require needles to keep your skin firm, plump and lifted for a youthful glow. Consider us your ally in this lifelong battle. And if you’re new to the anti-aging efforts, shop The Ultimate Lift Firmarine Starter Skin Set, featuring some of our favorite firming products: Firm & Lift Powder Mask, Firmarine Night Cream, Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30 and Firmarine Serum! ($96, Retail Value: $160).
Drink Water, Duh
We’ll start with the basics here. Everyone knows you need to keep your body hydrated for a multitude of reasons but we’d be remiss to not remind you its vital role in keeping your skin glowing and plump.

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.
Calling all glowgetters! You are going to be over the moon with our newest product, Hydra-Therapy Boost Serum! We’ve developed a cutting-edge micro-moisture delivery system to give you your best skin and optimal glow with this oil-serum hybrid. Seriously! Don’t be alarmed if you find yourself skipping foundation when running your Sunday errands. The Hydra-Therapy Boost Serum leaves your skin plump and dewy in seconds like those no-makeup makeup tutorials spend 15-minutes trying to achieve.
What: When looking closely at the serum, you’ll notice little balls of oil floating amongst the hydra-gel that combine and burst when dispensed through the nozzle. This is that extra-fancy, super-scientific moisture delivery system we mentioned before. Those micro-droplets of oil are packed with actives and the oil protects the purity and potency of the actives until the moment it bursts right befor
Despite what our angelic complexions might suggest, we weren’t always the face of perfection as children, or teenagers for that matter. Our mothers, like all moms, put up with a lot throughout the years of raising us, and the older we get, the greater our appreciation and admiration for them seems to get. That’s why we’ve put together four very special bundles of some of our most prized Erno Laszlo products this Mother’s Day. So, even if you can’t take back the awful things you may have yelled at her as an angsty fourteen year old, you can show her some love this Mother’s Day with a real (or virtual hug) and the gift of some first-class skincare. It may even soften those worry lines that suspiciously appeared on her forehead around the time you were 15.
Because your mom is almost certainly as unique as you are, we’ve created this Mother’s Day Gift Guide so you can pass on the perfect present to the one who literally made you the person you are! Love you, Mom.
Our spirits (and our complexions!) are lifted for the launch of our new Firmarine Lift Essence Lotion. We are so excited to add a new member to the Firm & Lift fam and are trying not to excessively brag about its innovative technology. But this stuff is science! Plus, did we mention that we’re excited? If you need a refresher course on what the difference between an essence, toner or serum is, we’ve got the breakdown over here. Otherwise, keep scrolling to get the lowdown on our newest creation.
What: Our Firmarine Lift Essence Lotion revives skin instantly and preps complexion for the next step in your routine. Merging the benefits of botanical extracts with Spirulina Maxima Extract to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles, this watery gel-like ess
Many of you will know of International Women’s Day. A day that falls on March 8th and celebrates women’s achievements and pushes forward towards gender equality all over the world. But not all are aware that it started back in 1913 in New York and was organized by the Socialist Party of America.
As a brand that was founded in New York in 1927 and one that celebrated bold women from the start like Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, Greta Garbo and Audrey Hepburn, we are taking a moment to reflect on progress made, to call for continued change and to acknowledge the acts of today’s courageous and extraordinary women. From the Women’s March back in January or the #metoo movement coming out of Hollywood as well as the Gender Gap Report showing it will take 217 years to close the gender parity gap, this year’s theme of #pressforprogress captured the spirit of our New York office.
We all gathered at the Made Hotel for a morning coffee and chatted about our own personal journeys, s
It’s not like you needed (or wanted) a reminder because your local drugstore has made you well-aware of the approaching holiday, Valentine’s Day. This year, regardless of our relationship status, we are celebrating love. Love is love and it takes so many forms, so whether you’re celebrating with your S.O. or your posse of femme friends, we think you deserve to look and feel your best! We’ve rounded up our favorite products to get glowing skin for date night (or any occasion!):
Get a head start on that glowing skin in your sleep. Honestly, if we had it our way a great night’s sleep would be our Valentine this year and a night with our Memory Sleep Mask automatically qualifies for an amazing sleep. Wake up in the morning with hydrated skin (no thanks to your sp
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.
The holidays are here! While this means visions of sugarplum fairies dancing in your head, it also means your holiday shopping list is growing faster than you can find time to brave the overcrowded stores. (Or faster than you can type in your credit card information, if you’re the cyber shopping type!) That’s why this holiday season we want to put a pause on all of the stressful shopping and take a moment to recognize the gifts exchanged every year (every day, for that matter) that you won’t find on any gift guide.
This is what we call ‘The Gift of Knowledge’ and it makes up the moments between friends, family, coworkers and more. It’s the advice you bestowed upon your younger sister when she came to you freaked out about her first blemish. Or the tidbits of rituals and habits that you picked up over the years from your grandmother, as you watched her get ready with such fascination. It’s the confidence and poise that your mother instilled in you by showing you how beautiful you
If we were forced to sit down and list out things that we would maybe probably definitely consider ourselves addicted to, masking would be #1 on our list. Masking should be a part of your weekly skincare routine but we’ve been known to mask Monday through Sunday during a particularly rough week. Coincidentally, Halloween is just around the corner, which is mask season, AND the perfect excuse to indulge our sweet tooth. Let’s indulge both of these “vices” with a masking (less Scream, more skincare) and candy pairing list!
Do yourself (and your skin) a favor and read this.
Everyone has different ideas of what washing their face means. For some, it’s a quick swipe of makeup remover while others have a much more involved process. Here at Erno Laszlo HQ, we swear up, down and sideways by the magical powers of the Double Cleanse. (Disclaimer: In reality, these transformational powers are propelled by science and not magic.)
Not only is the Double Cleanse the foundation of all our skincare routines but also of our company. Our founder, Dr. Erno Laszlo, introduced the two-step ritual to his star-studded roster of clients in Hollywood during a time when women were washing their face with cold creams. (Gasp!)
While skincare philosophies have evolved immensely since then, we have heard every hesitation of the Double Cleanse in the book. And so many of them are misplaced! Since we never miss out an opportunity to sing the praises of this revolutionary skincare step, we are addressing these concerns b

The world of exfoliation can often be an intimidating and scary beast in the wild terrain of skincare for both newbies and experts alike. With words like chemical, physical, peels, it’s easy to just slowly back away and skip this step all together. But we’re here to hold your hand and break down the big, bad world of exfoliation so you can stop missing out on all of its amazing benefits (like allowing nutrients and other products to sink into your skin better). Trust us!
Physical vs. Chemical Exfoliation First, let’s discuss the difference between physical and chemical exfoliation.Physical exfoliation incorporates beads, sugar or other pieces of texture to scrub away debris and dead skin cells.
Chemical exfoliation, on the other hand, won’t look like a typical scrub to the naked eye. It will contain a wide variety of acids (Lactic, Glycolic, Citric, etc.) in its list of ingredients to get the job done. Again, don’t panic. These are not the acids from your over-the-
