Erno Laszlo Refresh Moisture Infusion
Erno Laszlo has been helping the world's most beautiful women maintain radiant skin since 1927. He was considered the progenitor of modern skin care, and now contemporary skincare products and philosophies owe something to the Hungarian visionary and his eponymous brand. Laszlo was infamous for his honesty and directness, refusing treatment if clients stopped following advice. The new Refresh Moisture Infusion is inspired by Grace Kelly, one of Laszlo's muses. This hydrating cream diminishes dullness during the winter and restores suppleness and hydration. It infuses the skin with 24-hour moisture with Watermelon Fruit Extract, while precious tourmaline gem technology recaptures skin clarity. Vitamin C helps return skin's radiance as Vitamin E protects against free radical damage.
