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.
I know you're probably wondering why you should spend more on a mask when there are plenty of under-$5 sheet mask options that leave you feeling refreshed. Aside from just better ingredients, a good face mask can act like an at-home-facial, completely resetting your complexion and working as much more than a quick-fix. Take Clé de Peau Beauté's Intensive Brightening Mask ($160), not only does it brighten and exfoliate your skin to look more even and radiant, but it also helps to enhances the skin's resistance to environmental aggressors, so your complexion can look better, longer.
Tools and Devices
This year, a boom in personalized tools and devices has made it even easier to achieve spa-like results from the comfort of your home. From the more affordable massage beauty roller to the futuristic smart mask, go an extra week or two between facial visits thanks to these products.
A moisturized complexion is essential to the overall health of your skin, and since creams tend to be super rich, their ingredients are better absorbed into your skin, meaning they should be powerful and healthy. In other words, we seriously suggest splurging on a good moisturizer.
