Skincare is the basis of everything, so why not splurge on your complexion? But we know that jumping to luxury skincare can be daunting for anyone – no matter how much $$$ you have in your bank account. So we’ve put together a list of our all-time favorite luxury skincare products that do everything they promise and more. For anyone who is thinking about purchasing an expensive skincare product: make sure to test it out first. Just because it has an expensive price tag doesn’t mean it works. And like any other skincare, just because it works for someone else doesn’t mean it’ll work for you! Go to a store and ask for a sample. Do your research. Read reviews like this one! Get to know the luxury skincare products before you splurge.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum
This is a moisturizing, anti-aging serum that speeds up your skin’s recovery overnight. It brightens, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and hydrates all at once. It has Hyaluronic acid, which is great for moisture, yeast extracts and algae, good for cell activity and healing. It absorbs right into the skin and adds moisture to the skin even before you layer your lotion on top. This product is also amazing for balancing out your skin’s overall texture. It’s great for all ages and skin types, not just those looking to reap those anti-aging benefits.
Chanel Hydra Beauty Sérum
While this has a hefty price tag for a serum, this is the best hydrating serum on the market. Have you ever wanted your face to feel like it’s been touched by the velvety hand of an angel? This Chanel serum will get you there. It has been shown to increase skin hydration by 50 percent immediately after application (whatever that means) and works perfectly for nighttime or daytime application under makeup. You could definitely use this product without a follow-up moisturizer, it’s that good. This is one of the classic luxury skincare products that holds up to its name.
Anything From Biologique Recherche
This skincare brand is so exclusive, it’s extremely hard to find in the U.S. and only has a few retailers. Their most acclaimed product is probably the Lotion P 50 , which is a cult favorite of top skincare professionals. This facial in a bottle exfoliates and balances the skin, while protecting it from future breakouts and pollutants. Another great product to try is their Masque Vip 02 Oxygenating, a gentle mask that gives your skin a natural glow. It revitalizes your skin and gives it active ingredients like marine elastin and collagen that instantly feel amazing. It’s also a great mask to use before makeup!
Allies Of Skin Bright Future Overnight Facial
We’re always told that your skin repairs itself best overnight, so why not add a $120 mask to speed up that magic process? This overnight facial is a mix of retinol, probiotics and hyaluronic acid that literally plumps your skin while you sleep. This product makes waking up flawless easy. This is one of the luxury skincare products that will make you feel like you just got a professional facial.
Drunk Elephant T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial
This 25 percent AHA facial peel is serious stuff. Think Glossier’s Solution, but on steroids. It gives you a professional grade facial in 20 minutes at home, without the burning sensation of most exfoliating at-home facial peels. Plus, you don’t need that much to see results – so the bottle actually goes a long way. (I’ve had mine for 6 months and there’s still TONS of product)
An essence helps your skin absorb the other products you’re about to layer on it, so why not invest in a good one? The Vinoperfect line is great, and this essence is no outlier. It is lightweight, but feels moisturizing, and instantly refreshes your skin and preps it for the next thing. More notably, it brightens and evens out the skin’s overall texture.
SK-II R.N.A. Power Eye Cream
The best eye cream on the market. If you have a problem with dark circles, this stuff is amazing. There are no bad reviews. Most eye creams are good moisturizers, but this adds a firmness to the under-eye area that I’ve never seen with another eye product.
Kate Somerville EradiKate Cleanser
If you’re looking for a zit-zapper, this is a good go to. It doesn’t dry out the rest of your face, which is the hardest thing to find in an acne-fighting cleanser. Best for acne-prone, oily or combination skin, the honey and rice bran ingredients calm redness while natural oat extract absorbs excess acne-causing sebum.
Because what would a luxury skincare list be without La Mer? If you want to talk about moisturizers that leave the perfect dewy finish, this makes the top of every list. This “highly coveted” moisturizer hydrates and improves dryness instantly. It contains magical sea kelp that heals and regenerates and does things no other moisturizer can do. It’s incredible.
