Erno Laszlo Skin Miracle!

Posted in Erno Laszlo, favorite, product review, skin by fashionista514 on February 6, 2009

I have been using Erno Laszlo products now for almost a year, and I can’t even begin to tell you how it has completely transformed my skin.

I have very acne prone skin and would always cover it up with massive amounts of makeup. Pretty yuck. Anyway, one day I was meandering around Holts and remembered a friend of mine had suggested I use a cleanser or mask with Alpha Hydroxy Acid to help deep clean away my blemishes. So, I asked a saleswoman at one of the counters if any of the cosmetics brands in the store carried that ingredient in any of their lines. Before I knew it, she had addressed my skin problem and was recommending a completely new regime. The Erno Laszlo splashing regime. I was skeptical. How many times have we all been sold a line of cosmetics or skin care that just does not deliver? At this point I had tried Proactiv, dermatologist prescribed antibiotics and topical serums, creams and peels. Every recommendation I had tried and was seriously beginning to consider Accutane. Now I know this is quite a leap, but I work and have my future in fashion and makeup. Really there is no place in my life (or time) for me to be worrying about what will appear on my face and cripple my confidence.

Somehow I trusted Tina the saleswoman. She wrote down my new regime (which was quite hard to get used to at first), and sent me on my way. The infamous Erno Laszlo splashing technique basically consists of filling your sink with hot water and splashing your soaped up and oiled face exactly twenty times with the same water. This technique treats your skin by treating it every time you splash. Then to finish up, splash ten more times with fresh hot water. The soap is made up of dead sea mud with mild exfoliants and lathers into a rich mask-like cleanser. Mixed with the oil (to take off makeup and coat your skin in essential oils), this combo proved to be unbeatable.

Within two weeks, my acne had altogether stopped. It honestly felt like a miracle! I thought it would control it, but cure it? Crazy! So now, I am a super loyal Erno Enthusiast who adores slowly trying the whole line cause everything truly delivers.

Dr. Laszlo was the original dermatologist skin doctor to develop a product line from popular demand after treating celebrity clients such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O, and Greta Garbo. Hey, if it’s good enough for them I’m on board!

If you do happen to be a montrealer, you must go and see Tina herself at Holt Renfrew on the corner of Sherbrooke and De la Montagne. Not only has she worked for Laszlo for years, she is an amazing esthetician who gives very coveted facials! Make an appointment for a personalized skin care practice with her at 514-842-5111 and watch all your wildest beauty dreams come true!

Here are some of my absolute die-hard faves:

  • Sea mud Soap

  • Total Blemish Treatment (a serum anyone can add to their regime that treats acne and prevents it – god sent)

  • C-Peel scrub (not only does it smell like oranges, but it gives the most effictive deep clean my skin has ever experienced)

  • Sea mud mask (use this after the c-peel for best results)

  • Antioxidant Complex for Eyes (Oh. My. Depuffs in the morning, regenerates at night, can be used as a mask for the undereyes. My eyes have never been happier!)

  • Hydra Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment (a new fave – great for giving back your skin the moisture you stole from it… via martini’s 😉 ).

You must try this line, whatever your dilemma – there is a solution! Check out:
