They’re responsible for the glowing and flawless complexions of A-listers, but most of us can’t just call and get an appointment for a facial with a celebrity esthetician. What you can do is the next best thing: Take matters into your own hands and use the products from their eponymous lines at home. Here, six cult-fave skin care collections from celebrity estheticians, plus what to try from each.
Celebs like Courtney Cox and Chelsea Handler rely on Moursi to keep their complexions clear and radiant. Known for her unique facial massaging technique, Moursi also has her own line of products, with everything from toners to masks.
Our Pick:Mila Moursi Oxy Cellular Renewal Cream ($220; barneys.com) packs oxygen into the skin for brightening benefits while anti-aging peptides and stem cell cultures do the whole skin-renewing thing. And it’s all in a lusciously whipped texture that strikes the perfect balance between being hydrating, but not heavy, and pleasantly scented, but not overly so.
This NYC-based esthetician is known for her no-nonsense approach (some devotees call her ‘Mean Christine’), and her eponymous product line is similarly straightforward. Think a range of cleansers, toners, moisturizers, masks, and exfoliators, all with to-the-point, effective ingredients.
Stars like Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts, and Rachel Weisz are on Vargas’ client list, but even us regular people can benefit from her skin care expertise, thanks to her extensive line-up of products, which is constantly growing and expanding.
Fedotova adopts a holistic approach in both her facials and her skin care line (she’s a cosmetic chemist, herbalist, and esthetician), sourcing all kinds of unique natural ingredients to create blends that truly deliver.
Our Pick:Elina’s Organics Oil Control Formula ($48; elinaorganicsskincare.com) contains a mix of fulvic acid, white willow bark extract (the natural precursor to salicylic acid), soothing aloe, and detoxifying burdock root for a final formula that is equally effective at zapping large red pimples as it is clearing blackheads and tamping down shine. It’s a clear-skin must-have.
