Top Customer Reviews

Erno Laszlo has an interesting glamorous history supplying very expensive skincare to European royalty and noted film stars from the 1930's onwards; the skin care line was created in the 1950's and became very successful in the late 1960's and into the 1970's in smart department stores. It's still sold in Harrods. This Phelityl intensive cream was actually used by the legendary and iconic Marilyn Monroe up until her death in 1962. I would agree that the packaging looks very upmarket, but what about the contents?

This expensive, fragrant, jar-packaged emollient rich cream is best for dry to very dry skins not prone to sensitivity. It has a very thick heavy texture and a quite basic formula containing mostly Vaseline, plant oil and lanolin. It lacks skin-repairing, antioxidants, and cell-communicating ingredients. It is also let down by the addition of added fragrance and fragrant ingredients, which could pose problems if you have a sensitive skin. Today this lacks the sophisticated formula and elegant texture you would associate with a cream at this price point.

Why Jar Packaging Is A Problem.

Good modern skincare formulations include antioxidants (like vitamins and retinol), cell-communicating and skin-repairing ingredients. However, you won’t get the benefits of these ingredients to your skin if the product you are using comes in a jar. This is because these ingredients are not stable, which means they won't be effective if exposed to light and air, which is exactly what happens when you take the lid off a jar. Hygiene is of course another issue; dipping your fingers or a spatula into a jar transfers bacteria into the product, which also causes the important ingredients to further deteriorate, making them far less effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant be without this! 8 April 2013

I bought this because I read Marilyn Monroe used this cream. I adore everything about this amazing product! My skin has become even in color and baby soft, with no more dark circles under my eyes. My face and neck look years younger and I dont know how I ever got by without it. I've never known another cream to moisturize so well and the smell is heavenly...reminds me of my childhood somehow. I'll be using this for life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but the quality matches 31 Mar. 2013

I bought this for my mother, and not a day goes by that she doesn't comment on how great it feels on her face. Also, I can see the effects already though she's only had it for a week. She looks great and many of her fine lines have diminished. She's now donning a healthy glow where her complexion was quickly becoming dull and faded.

This stuff is heavy and thick; it comes with a tiny spoon for scooping it out, and takes so little of it to cover an entire face that I expect it'll last a year which is certainly something to consider when contemplating the cost. Plus, it made my mom really happy, so for me, it was worth every penny!

Not for wearing outside of the house... super shiny/oily but moisturizes well. I can only use it at night because it is THAT shiny. Use it every other day or so, its THAT thick.
