The Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection

 Vintage beauty is back in a big way in 2012. Porcelain skin, pillar box red lips and immaculately lined eyes are the look de jour.

If like me you find yourself looking to the starlets of decades past for beauty hints and tips, you may well have come across a brand called Erno Laszlo, or alternatively you may have read about it on my blog last year here.

Either way, Laszlo was the go to skincare specialist in the Golden Age of Hollywood and his extensive client list included Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Katherine Hepburn to name but a few.

Ok don’t get me wrong, i know that these women were naturally stunning, but if Laszlo’s products were as great as Audrey Hepburn said;

 "I owe 50% of my beauty to my mother and the other 50% to Erno Laszlo.’’

Then i’d say they worth giving a go, and now is  great time to do so as they have just launched their Hollywood Collection.

The Hollywood Collection by Erno Laszlo is inspired by five of his most iconic clients and features five new products based on custom formulations taken from Lazlo’s  archive and updated with the latest skincare technology:

·         Ava Gardner – Instant Eye Repair (0.5 oz; £85)
·         Marilyn Monroe – Morning Beauty Rescue (1.7 oz; £95)
·         Katharine Hepburn – Intensive Porcelain Veil (1.7 oz; £140)
·         Grace Kelly – Refresh Moisture Infusion (1.7 oz; £125)
·         Greta Garbo – Velvet Night Cream (1.7 oz; £175)

I tried out three of the products, The Instant Eye Repair, Porcelain Veil and Refresh Moisture Infusion.
All three products are beautifully presented and smell divine.

Intensive Porcelain Veil (£140)

 The Porcelain Veil  is a feather-light cream which delivers deep moisturisation for a smoother, more refined complexion. The hydrating formula restores skin's suppleness for increased hydration and a reduction in the appearance of fine, dry lines and wrinkles.

Refresh Moisture Infusion (£125)

 The Refresh Moisture Infusion is a powerful formula which increases radiance and evens skin tone for a supple, more youthful appearance. Enriched with tourmaline technology and rejuvenating antioxidants to brighten and refine the complexion.

Instant Eye Repair (£85)

My favourite item is the gorgeous Instant Eye Repair. This nourishing eye cream hydrates and firms the eye area for a smooth, refreshed appearance. Formulated with natural brightening and firming properties, it works to ease puffiness and dark circles for a younger, more vibrant look.

The collection isn’t cheap, but when it comes to skincare i truly believe in investing in great products.

The Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection is available now exclusively from Harrods.
