The Beauty Lookbook

Great skincare products can be hard to come by. After all, there are thousands of products on the market claiming to smooth wrinkles, brighten your complexion, hydrate dry patches, eliminate acne, or all of the above. With price ranges varying from $10 to $100, it can be tempting to reach for the more affordable option. We get it. 

While there are plenty of under-$20 finds that can offer results, some luxury brands and products really get the job done—and then some. Take the celebrity-approved brand La Mer, for instance. Its creams have a cult following because they go beyond just fixing dry, cracked skin by also renewing and rejuvenating your complexion with a nutrient-rich formula that doesn't require re-application.

If you're in the market for new skincare products and are curious about which ones from your Instagram feed are actually worth the splurge, we're here to help. From creams to masks to serums, check out the skincare products from Net-a-Porter that will deliver serious results and are worth every penny.


A great serum is both hydrating and chock full of nutrient-rich ingredients that can help to brighten, tighten, and reduce premature signs of aging. They're purposefully super potent, which means you get a concentrated dose of powerful ingredients with every application. Choose from the ones worth the most bang for your buck, below.
