SkinStore x Erno Laszlo Limited Edition Beauty Box Review
Similar to the Look Fantastic collaboration, SkinStore also has a box with a few different Erno Laszlo products to enjoy!
The booklet goes over the brand's story.
And of course, what's included.
There is a dedicated spread to a new product, although it's not featured in this box.
Then they get into how to treat your skin for Winter.
And there's a two-page spread with Kristy Watson, CMO of Erno Laszlo.
Finally, there are details for a giveaway on the back.
Now let's see these products!!
Erno Laszlo White Marble Hydrogel Mask, 1 ct - Retail Value $16.00
The first of two masks included in this box is from their White Marble line. It comes in two pieces (top and bottom halves) and each piece is sandwiched between plastic backing to keep it safe. I was expecting a normal fabric sheet mask so I was delighted to see that it's actually a hydrogel mask which I wasn't familiar with. Like you can probably expect from the name, it's gelatinous in nature and really fun to use. It stuck to my face really well and easily forms over every different surface, including around my nose. This one is supposed to "lighten & brighten" so I used it in the morning after cleansing and before putting on any serums or moisturizers. After 15 minutes I peeled it off to reveal a thin layer of serum that I then easily massaged into my face. I'm not sure how much "brighter" my skin looked but it felt really nice and I liked this experience much more than the average sheet mask.
Erno Laszlo White Marble Radiance Emulsion, Full-Size 30ml – Retail Value $130.00
I don't love this serum as much as some of the other products but I think it's mainly due to the consistency. It's a thin milky product, as you can see and after spreading it on my face and neck, it feels a little tight to me. Some people may like that feeling and I'm sure it does help the skin look younger and more taught, but I'd rather look and feel dewier. After a while, it seeps in and definitely makes the skin incredibly soft but there are just other products out there that I personally like better. Receiving this full-size product is quite the value though, especially for the price since it has the highest retail value of the box. If this is a product you already know and love, getting the whole box for $98 is a no-brainer.
Erno Laszlo Phelityl Night Cream, Travel-Size 15ml - Retail Value $46.00
Ok, so they call this "full-size" on the description on their site, but there is a larger size available, so I'm going to call this a "travel-size". I honestly wouldn't have known the difference since it's still a really good size and definitely not just a trial, but this is the smaller of the two sizes available. That being said, OMG this cream is WONDERFUL. Not in my wildest dreams could I imagine my skin could be so soft as it is after using this for a few days in a row. I've been using oils and serums for over a year now so switching to what I think of as being more "old school" and using a night cream feels incredibly luxurious. When I wake up, my cheeks feel as soft as a baby's bottom, I swear to you. It's outrageous. I know I shouldn't touch my face throughout the day but I can't help it. So amazing!
Sensitive Hydrogel Mask, 1 ct - Estimated Retail Value $16.00 (Linked to similar)
I got so much more out of this mask than the other one for some reason. I think the harsh cold my skin is up against the past month really needed this intensely hydrating mask! Like the other one, this is a hydrogel and comes split into two pieces, the top, and the bottom. Meant to "soothe & calm", I used this mask in the evening and after 20 minutes, my face felt and looked impossibly dewy. There was leftover serum but not so much that it felt gross. I simply massaged it in and couldn't stop cooing and my fresh face. I felt no need to add a serum after this one before bed, I felt so hydrated. This is truly one of the few masks I would buy again and recommend to friends. Worth every penny of the $16 price tag.
Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Foaming Cleanser, Full-Size 100ml - Retail Value $45.00
This cleanser! My word, I love it. It comes out like a pearlesque moisturizer almost but is a foaming cleanser. As I'm using circular motions on my face, I can feel it making my skin softer as it cleanses. Usually, after cleansing, my skin feels dry a minute or so later and I can't wait to get oil or moisturizer on, but not with this one. I feel plump and lovely and barely feel the need to use a moisturizer afterward. This is probably my second favorite product of the box to the night cream. Using the two in tandem is a real recipe for success, I've come to find just after about a week of using. Really fantastic product!
Erno Laszlo Multi-Task Eye Serum Masks, 6 ct - Retail Value $30.00
The last product of the box is a pack of 6 pairs of eye masks. Similar to the hydrogel masks, these little under eye swatches stick under the eye for 15-20 minutes and stay put really well. Though they claim to have instant results, I have a hard time with eye products in general really making a difference with my dark under-eye circles which is always what I am aiming to solve. Popping these in the fridge beforehand adds an extra layer of depuffing and cooling, so I'd definitely suggest doing that if you use these after a long night out. 😉
The Verdict: I wasn't familiar with the Erno Laszlo brand before this box but I am now obsessed. Three of the six products are ones I'd buy again without batting an eyelash, and overall, the value is just ridiculously good. This is the PERFECT way to test drive a luxury brand like this and I feel I got a great taste of a range of what they have to offer. The six items total a retail value of $283.00 which is almost triple the $98.00 cost and just about meets the $288 approximate promised value.
