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 EL Guide to Father's Day Ideas
Father’s Day is on its way and we’re recognizing the many important men in our lives. Have a great one this year with quality time spent together, creating memories. And don’t forget: men deserve self-care too! If you’re in need of some Father’s Day inspiration, get it below.
Movies, Museums, & More
Your dad is obviously a pretty cool guy. (After all, he raised you!) Celebrate him with an activity centered on something he loves. Take him to see a movie, baseball game, or the local art museum. We’re all so busy that simply spending time together is often the most rewarding gift of all.
Skincare bonus: a bottle of our Phelityl Day Lotion SPF 15 is a perfect pre-game present if your seats are in the sun!

Marilyn Monroe’s would-be 92nd birthday is June 1st. In honor of her status as a beloved American icon – not to mention the role she played in our own history – we’re remembering Marilyn with fun facts, rare photos, and her finest thoughts on fascinating topics.
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” – Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn is in our DNA
As one of Dr. Erno Laszlo’s most famous celebrity clients, Marilyn Monroe was an early adopter, shaping our future as the heritage brand we are today. Dr. Laszlo even created the Phormula 3-8 balm specifically for Marilyn, to heal an appendectomy scar on her stomach. We’ve reintroduced it in the modern era as Phormula 3-9; now it’s use
There’s no better time than spring to refresh your everyday life. Whether that means your habits, closet, or medicine cabinet, there’s more than one way to channel radiance into your life and your skin. Get inspired to add a new spring ritual to your routine this season!
Clean out your closet and get rid of old products.
Few things feel as good as an organized closet and refreshed wardrobe. Get into the spirit of the season by getting rid of old clothes like that lumpy sweater you didn’t even wear this winter. (Bonus: this makes room for more new ones!)
It’s not just your closet that can use a refresh, though. Take some tips from our guide to organizing your bathroom if you’re a skincare enthusiast. The most important one might be to toss expired products. Not only do they take up space, but they aren’t as effective as new product
Dating back to 1927, we have a very rich heritage of featuring iconic women through the years. Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn just to name a few. International Women’s Day comes once a year and is a big deal around our office! We sat down with a few of our leading ladies to get inspired on what they love about being a woman and celebrating this special day.
Social Media and Influencer Coordinator
Who are some women that inspire you and why?
It’s hard for me to pinpoint who exactly inspires me because all women inspire me every day. From seeing women holding the highest position in a company that once would be considered “male dominated” to seeing women around me fighting for equal pay and reproductive rights, I’m inspired by all women who are going against the grain and are unapologetically themselves.

We might be suckers for food-themed anything (Yes, we spent a lot of time on pizza shaped pool floaties this summer.) but when it comes to the ingredients in your skincare routine, fruit and veggie packed products really are better! If you haven’t experienced the results of the following products just yet, we can paint you a picture of just how effective (and luxurious) they are thanks to some delicious ingredients.
What’s it in? White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C-Peel
Your mom was right, having an adequate Vitamin C intake in your diet is super important, and we can’t stress enough how great it is for your face either! Vitamin C is proven to even out skin tone, hydrate, protect against pollution, and brighten up your complexion. It’s a miracle ingredient, really, and it’s one of the reasons why we fell so hard for our Dual Phase V
With Halloween creeping up on us, you know we’ll be getting a little spooky before the costume parties get into full swing later this month. Because we’re never ones to gloss over a holiday, we always look forward to spending a few cozy nights curled up on the couch getting the daylights scared out of us by a few choice horror films (or at least a couple of Halloween-themed movies).
All this holiday spirit begs the question, what’s more fitting than watching a Halloween-themed movie while donning our favorite kind of mask...one that gives you glowing, healthy skin?! Without further ado, we introduce our Halloween horror movie recommendations to match your mask preference.

These days there you can find a multitude of tools at your disposal to help you look and feel like the best version of yourself. While the vast majority of these items are targeted toward women, the items and practice of self-care are genderless. There is somewhat of a stigma surrounding men’s self-care and it’s time to break that way of thinking.
Self-care is an important part of anyone’s daily routine. Knowing you’re doing something that will help you look and feel like the best, has huge benefits on confidence. So the next time your in a man’s bathroom, be on the lookout for certain products. Having them means he is making that investment in himself. If he doesn’t, encourage him to start a self-care routine that works for him.
When starting a self-care regimen, it is imperative to make sure that you have a good moisturizer. Investing in a good moisturizer will only be a benefit in the long. The best way to think of moisturizer is as food fo
By now you’re an expert on our latest creation, our groundbreaking Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse. The latest addition to our Exfoliate & Detox collection brings the effectiveness of our classic double cleanse to a simple, one-step system. So how is our brand new cleanser fit into the morning routines of some of our favorite It Girls? Read on to find out.

First I reach for my journal and write my intentions and goals for the day - it helps me stay off my phone right when I wake up! Next I drink a big glass of water and then wake up my skin! After all the traveling and with fall around the corner, I’ve been using my Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse on the daily to kickstart my AM. Not only looks so
It’s that time of year again! And even if the school library is the last place you’ll be found this fall, we’re taking the opportunity to go back to basics with Skincare 101. When it comes to the steps in your skincare routine, it’s easy to get caught up in product names that are as long as the ABC’s and adjective-heavy product descriptions. But why do we use the products we do? Grab a pen and paper while we take you through the beauty basics. (Don’t worry, we won’t surprise you with a pop quiz at the end.)
Why use a cleanser?
Cleansing should always be step numero uno in your skincare routine, as its job is to provide a clean canvas for the rest of the products in your regimen. Choose a cleanser that’s effective enough to remove debris and makeup like our Double Cleanse sets, or if you’re looking for a quicker fix, try our Hydra-Therapy Foaming Cleanse
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
Hyaluronic Acid has been a hot topic for a while now and it shows no signs of slowing down, which it shouldn’t because it’s honestly a hydration hero for ALL skin types. But even if you love reaching for your moisturizer that boasts the presence of Hyaluronic Acid to bring your skin back to life...do you actually know what it is? (It’s okay if you don’t. You’re not alone!) We’re here to breakdown the beauty of this powerhouse ingredient.
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring molecule in skin and connective tissue that attracts and holds moisture. This means everyone already has HA working wonders on their skin. As we age, the levels of HA diminishes and with it so does skin’s ability to retain moisture. Babies are well-stocked on HA, which is part of the reason we all strive for skin ‘soft as a baby’s bottom’.
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. Still have difficulties drinking 8 glasses a day? Set a reminder in your phone or calendar to sip your way through the day!

The internet is brimming with conflicting stories surrounding SPF legends and sun protection. With so much opposing information, how do you know what to believe when it comes to protecting your skin from the sun? One thing is for sure - just about everything your mom taught you about sun protection when you were a kid is no longer relevant. Today, we’re breaking down SPF myths and setting the record straight! Stay cool (and safe) for the summer!
UVA vs. UVB Rays
Knowing the difference between UVA and UVB rays is crucial information when it comes to long-term skin protection. While they both increase your chance of cancer, SPF only protects against UVB rays, which cause the physical sunburn. Any old sunscreen will shield you from these, but it’s the deeply-penetrating UVA rays that will get you in the long run, causing leathery, saggy skin and wrinkles years down the road. To make sure you’re protecting yourself from both these types of sun damage, only use br
As the skincare world continues to evolve and practiced trends from Asia migrate over to the Western world, it seems like there’s always a new step to add to your routine. It can be overwhelming, confusing or just elicit a general ‘WTF’ response. While you’ve probably got your cleansing routine down pat, it can start to get a little murky for newbies and experts alike after that.
Toners, essences and serums are often confused and interchanged and that’s because while they have major differences, there are some overlaps. For example, essences and toners are both used to prep your skin to better absorb the skincare steps that follow it (like serum and moisturizer). Don’t worry! We’re here to break it down for you.
Let’s tackle toners first since this is the first product you use amongst this often confuddled trio. Toners usually come in a larger bottle than ess
If 2017 was the year for Vitamin C, we’re declaring 2018 the year that we sing the well-earned praises of Vitamin B3. (And, of course, continue to obsess over Vitamin C because there’s enough love to go around and we have a metaphorical iron-tight grip on our Vitamin C Peel at all times!) Let’s get to it and start shining the spotlight on this equally-impressive powerhouse player!
Vitamin B3, or niacinamide, is a natural illuminator that offers a plethora of benefits for aging skin. This water-soluble vitamin is the real queen of multi-tasking. It visibly improves the appearance of large pores, improves uneven skin tone, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, reduces dullness...and more! An overachiever after our hearts.
In the pageantry of skincare, Vitamin B3 ta
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

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.

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

Finding a gift that is worthy of Mom’s excellence can be daunting bu
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
