There are few things that make you feel like you have your life together more than a boujee skincare product. Let’s face it, smoothing on a super-rich eye cream or misting with a luxury face spray really does feel great – and if it makes you feel good, then that’s what we are here for. Gone are the days where we would just look for the cheapest moisturiser – we’re so much more aware and educated on what we should be doing for our skin. So, not only will these products look great on your shelfie, but the next-level ingredients and science inside these tubes and pots really do live up to the bigger price tag. If a boujee skincare routine is your vibe, then these are the products you should be investing in.
Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask
If there’s a brand that everyone will recognise when it comes to boujee skin, then it’s Elemis. The legacy skincare brand is trusted by spas and beauty gurus around the world thanks to their knack for combining effective science with rich natural ingredients. The Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask works to effectively regenerate the surface of the skin, making it feel smoother, more even and balanced. Their patented Tri-Enzyme technology (fancy!) combines with amino acids and white truffle to help balance sebum levels and encourage the retexturising of the skin’s surface. The result? Super soft and glowing skin.
Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Boost Serum
The dermatologist Erno Laszlo started his namesake brand in the 1920s and went on to provide skincare to some of the biggest icons of the 20th century – we’re talking Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn here. The brand still produces high quality skincare to this day and the Hydra-Therapy Boost Serum is one of our faves. This serum contains micro-droplets of oil suspended in a hydra-gel formula, which keeps them potent until they touch the surface of your face. Nothing will leave your skin feeling as nourished and moisturised as this serum. Well, if it’s good enough for Audrey…
Farsali Rose Gold Skin Mist
One of our fave boujee brands is Farsali, known for their extra AF elixirs and essences. Naturally, we were obsessed with the Rose Gold Skin Mist as soon as it landed. This four-in-one face mist can be used to hydrate, prime, refresh and illuminate the skin and it’s infused with actual 24K gold flakes… how boujee do you want to get? The rosehip oil in this mist helps to nourish the skin and reduce signs of aging, whilst the gold flecks create a natural, radiant glow on the skin. It can be used before or after makeup and is clean, vegan, and cruelty free.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Hydrating Oil
There are few products that are as tried, tested, and loved as the beauty buys from Anastasia Beverly Hills, so naturally The Hydrating Oil is the next boujee buy you’re going to want to add to your bag. This lightweight facial oil is enriched with Mediterranean botanical extracts, jojoba and rosehip oil that all help to nourish and hydrate the skin for a glowing result. It’s non-comedogenic and absorbs super quick, making it ideal for using before makeup application, as well as before you hit the sheets.
NIOD Ethylated L Ascorbic Acid 30% Network
Okay, it may seem like you need a degree in science to decode this name, but we’re going to break it down for you. In short speak, NIOD’s Ethylated L Ascorbic Acid 30% Network (or ELAN for short) is a highly stable and extremely pure version of vitamin C that costs nearly 100 times more than pure vitamin C – boujee. Being a stable form of vitamin C means that it effectively protects your skin against free radicals, in turn preventing long term cell damage and signs of aging. Basically, if you want your skin to be brightened, balanced, revived, and protected, then you need this.
Rodial Vitamin C Eye Souffle
If we’re talking boujee, then eye creams are where it’s at. They’re a product that so many people skip, yet the benefits are definitely worth the spend. The Vitamin C Eye Souffle from Rodial is a super-rich and creamy eye treatment that feels like a dream on the delicate skin around the eye. It contains 2% vitamin C, which helps to make your eye area look visibly brighter, less puffy, and more even. The hydrating formula sinks into the skin to help reduce the appearance of dark circles, which we all need from time to time.
Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Prism Cream
If this gold packaging doesn’t scream boujee, then who knows what does, but the contents of this standout tube are just as extra and great for your skin as the outer. The 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Prism Cream is a facial moisturiser that will literally give you the all-over glow of your dreams. Infused with 24K gold (apparently used by Cleopatra for its beauty benefits – need we say any more?) this cream works to add luminosity and radiance to the skin, whilst also protecting against moisture loss. The three shades of optical diffusers glide onto the face to give the appearance of a flawless complexion. We’re into it.
