3 Products Worth the Splurge This August
Some people like to save their money and invest in a vintage car, a one-of-a-kind appliance, or a piece of striking jewelry. If you’re a beauty editor, investing time and, of course, hard-earned cash on your skin can give you the same feeling of satisfaction, especially when expensive products and treatments deliver out-of-this-world results. (Hey, a little splurge never killed anyone, right?) We firmly believe that you simply can’t put a price tag on clear, radiant skin, and—unlike a costly accessory—it never goes out of style. Below, three products that are (quite literally) worth their weight in gold.
SKINCEUTICALS AGE-DEFYING LASER + ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEM
If you’ve been on the fence about purchasing an at-home laser, allow us to motivate your decision. This at-home laser system combines the Tria Age-Defying Laser with antioxidants to help improve visible signs of aging. One package includes the Tria Age-Defying Laser, an at-home laser to help restore skin’s luminosity for a more youthful, radiant, and refreshed complexion, as well as antioxidant-rich formulated products SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic and SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E. Use both post-laser for protection against environmental aggressors caused by free radicals, as well as to help support skin’s natural repair. Visible results of the system show an improvement in discoloration, smoothness, overall skin appearance, and facial wrinkles. Are you sold yet?
YVES SAINT LAURENT BEAUTÉ FOREVER YOUTH LIBERATOR SERUM
This serum is receiving rave reviews and there’s no surprise as to why. It contains the highest concentration of Glycanactif—a patented formula composed of three glycans—that can help restore skin’s youthful beauty. It’s available in three sizes—1.0, 1.7, and 2.5 oz.—but why not splurge on the largest size? The more the merrier.
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Forever Youth Liberator Serum, $255 for 2.5 oz.
GIORGIO ARMANI CREMA NERA SUPREME RECOVERY BALM
If you’re not waking up to revitalized skin, it’s time to consider changing your night treatment. This unique balm works while you snooze for skin that looks visibly fresher, plumper, and rested come morning. The formula boasts the brand’s exclusive anti-aging Reviscentalis complex to even skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firm skin, and add a radiant glow, as well as antioxidant-rich purpura extract to help detoxify skin’s surface. Apply in a thick layer two or three times a week as the last step in an evening skin care routine. The silky texture immediately melts into the skin and gets to work, no time wasted.
