Erno Laszlo Hydra Therapy Skin Revitalizer

by christinamdick


I think Erno Laszlo’s Hydra Therapy Skin Revitalizer is just perfect. I bought it to use as a serum, under my moisturizer. Now that it’s summer , I use this in place of moisturizer for something super light that still keeps my skin hydrated.  Here’s what they have to say about it:

“A powerful thirst quencher for skin. Our lightweight emulsion is a serious hydrator, capturing and locking in moisture—drawing it into the deepest levels of skin. Completely immersed, skin feels plumper and softer, and fine lines and wrinkles look smoothed away. The hydration serum is perfect for summer for all skin types.  An added boost for those who are dry, and an oil free hydration for those who are oily.

Hydrates: Used alone, provides for oily skin’s occasional moisture needs and used with moisturizer, offers intensive hydration for normal to dry skin.
Rebuilds: Restores elasticity and increases firmness and tone.
Nourishes: Botanical phosphatides mimic skin’s own lipids, delivering nutrients to weak cells.”


This is one of the many, many products I’ve been trying out from Elements. Get 10% off your purchase in their Carytown store or at ElementsBeautyShop.com with the code TIRAMISU.

H&M Plaid Throw: The last time I was traveling, I noticed someone in the airport had a throw/scarf draped over their bag and I thought it looked so chic. I picked up this cream plaid one It’s sold out now, but  here’s a similar one. If you want to get really fancy, try this cashmere throw.

2. H&M Striped Woven Top:  I’m  wearing it here.

3. J. Crew Pixie Pants: These are a staple. I wear them almost every weekend all winter. I also thing they’re cute with a silk cami and a blazer. I love these with a sweater or long sleeve top for a plane ride. Maxi dresses with a sweater overtop are also great for long trips.

4. Tortoise sunglasses: I bought my round tortoise sunglasses from LOFT a few years ago, but these and these are similar. I also love these leopard ones.

5. Floppy Straw Hat: I love this for the beach. I have a black one, but this white one would be so pretty.

6. Fresh magazines are the best. I get Real Simple, Better Homes and Gardens, InStyle, Allure and Glamour. I try to save them when I know I have a trip coming up so I have something new and fun to read on the plane or in the car.

7. Kate Spade Saturday Square Down Perf Tote: I bought this last season and I’m still using it everyday. It’s sold out now but there are similar ones here and here.

8. Hue No-Show Socks: Socks! If I’m not in boots for winter, I’m usually not wearing socks. I like to carry a spare pair so I can take my shoes off and lounge for long trips.

9. Starbucks 24oz Cold Cup: I love having this with me on the plane or in the car to encourage me to drink more water. Traveling can take a lot out of you and
