Erno Laszlo Active Phelityl Intensive Cream Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Erno Laszlo Active Phelityl Intensive Cream is in incredible face cream, especially for dry skin, and while I do not have dry skin I find that it works exceptionally well on my normal/combination skin. My mom, who has dry skin, used it for many, many years, and absolutely love it. My sister and I were recently obsessing about how amazing this cream was, and I told her and my mom that I had purchased a few items, and was currently rather obsessed with Erno Laszlo all over again. This is a very rich cream that locks in moisture and leaves skin unbelievably smooth, supple and luminous. It contains petrolatum, which makes it a bit rich for daytime use for my normal/combination skin, but perfect for my nighttime routine. It is very concentrated, and therefore only a tiny amount is needed. I warm it up in my hands first and then massage it into my freshly cleansed skin, and it sinks right in. It has a wonderful smell that is light and a bit beyond description, but it is very warm and comforting. Laszlo claims that this is a 24 hour cream, and that really is no exaggeration. This also can be used as a spot treatment for dry patches on the face and body, and it does a remarkable job healing and moisturizing. I knew someone who used this religiously, and it was her go-to product after a peel. I haven't tried it in that capacity, but she claimed that it was the only product that worked for her post-peel.
According to Erno Laszlo,

Erno Laszlo's original, all-purpose 24-hour cream intensively protects your skin's natural moisture around the clock, even in extreme weather conditions.

One of Dr. Laszlo’s earliest innovations, the Phelityl Complex remains an advanced way to deliver hydration and balance pH by replenishing the fatty acids essential to skin’s health. Skin-mimicking Safflower Seed Oil allows skin to easily absorb moisture. Lanolin helps to form a shield for the skin against environmental stressors like cold weather and wind.

An all-day solution for dry or weather-exposed skin, this 24-hour cream fiercely protects from the elements and nourishes skin’s moisture barrier

  1. You are great at reminding everyone about this forgotten line. There's a reason it's still around after so long and you are showing that.

    1. Thanks, Marcia! Frankly, it had been quite a few years since I had used their products, and I am just so happy that I am using a few of their products again! There definitely is a good reason why they are still around. They have done a lot of rebranding over the years, and sadly they have discontinued a lot of really amazing products.

  2. Once I get caught up on all the moisturizers that I currently have, I need to give this one from Laszlo a try. Sounds perfect for my dry skin

    1. I was actually thinku=ing of you when I was writing this review because this cream would be perfect for your dry skin, Allison! They are having a 25% Off Friends and Family Event sidewise starting today, therefore you might want to consider it!
