5 Skin Care Products Worth The Price Tag

Today we have an awesome guest post from Kelsey (that’s her in the photo above, isn’t she gorgeous?!)! Kelsey is the editor at LuxAuthority and is trying to balance both her budget and her credit card balance. She likes to live lavish and treat herself when the opportunity allows it. She loves the newest tech, old cars and the smell of rich mahogany and leather bound books as well!

Youthful looking skin is the key to helping you feel more confident. With so many products on the market, finding the ones that are most effective can be a daunting task. Drugstores carry many products for less than $20 that work well. However, skincare regimens that come with a higher price tag could produce better results. Expensive products tend to provide long-term effects and come in a physician-strength formula. A retinol product at a drugstore, for example, will give you the ingredients but at a much lower strength. Here is a list of the top 5 luxury skincare products that are worth the splurge.

  1. La-Roche Posay Anthelios Sunscreen

Sunscreen is one of the most essential products you should use on your skin every day. Not only does it protect you from the sun, but also from free radicals and environmental factors that cause aging. La-Roche Posay Anthelios Sunscreen is a lightweight formula that absorbs quickly into the skin. It leaves your skin with a tinted glow that can replace the need for foundation. It is ideal for sensitive skin and is made 100% from minerals and antioxidants. La-Roche Posay sunscreens have won over 60 beauty awards and are:

* Non-comedogenic

* Fragrance-free

* Paraben-free

* Allergy-tested

* Water resistant

* Dermatologist tested

Dr. Kenneth Mark is a board-certified Mohs surgeon and dermatologist. This antioxidant boost contains encapsulated Astaxanthin, green tea, hyaluronic acid, collagen-promoting peptides, and plant stem cells from Switzerland. The powerful formula has a time release technology that increases the action of the ingredients. Precious vitamins and minerals efficiently protect the skin from environmental hazards and free radicals. You will notice a decrease in facial wrinkles and even skin tone after just a few uses.


  1. Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Serum

Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Serum


Skinceuticals is responsible for creating the first serum that includes the combination of vitamin C, vitamin E, and ferulic acid. Ferulic acid is a potent antioxidant that is found in many plants. It increases the body’s natural collagen production, fights free radicals, and boosts sun protection. Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Serum is fragrance-free, prevents sun damage, and premature aging. (Note from Lindsay: Lady Sonja Morgan is a big fan of this product.)


  1. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules

It contains sweet almond oils, Bisabolol, and kukui making it ideal for dehydrated skin. The small capsules include hyaluronic acid to help lock in moisture and reduce lines and wrinkles. Individuals have seen significant results after four weeks of use. Your skin will appear more radiant, hydrated, and smoother to the touch.


  1. Peter Thomas Roth Neuroliquid Volufill Youth Serum

Lilly Ghalichi’s Tips and Tricks – Part One

Lilly Ghalichi had a live makeup tutorial using one of her many professional makeup artists Bria Valencia on 8/15/14 and I watched it for Blushing in Hollywood research purposes 😉 If you don’t know Lilly, she is a reality TV star from Bravo’s Shahs of Sunset where she was referred to as Persian Barbie. Lilly is not just a pretty face she is also an attorney, a fashion designer, a (very successful) business owner, and a blogger as well. Lilly is from Houston (but lives in LA) and as a native Texan she loves big hair and big glamour. She typically rocks a very full face, several pairs of false eyelashes, and lots of contouring. She even mentioned in the class that she hates makeup artists that only use a little bit of foundation and pinch your cheeks for a “natural look” because she wants to look like she is wearing makeup.

She started with skin care and she swears by Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub ($6)

biore-pore-Unclogging-ScrubThis was the first product that I immediately added to my shopping list. She said she needs a good scrub because she wears so much makeup and I’ve been feeling like I need something to give me a deeper clean as well. She then went on to say she loves Murad skin care products and you can read more about which ones here on her blog.
