I’m a beauty product junkie, so I can honestly say I’ve tried enough of them to offer a comprehensive list of luxurious beauty products. If you’re in a position to compare drugstore products to these luxurious beauty products, I think you’ll find there’s really no comparison at all. I was hooked on all of these from the very first application!

Clarins Moisture-Rich Body Lotion for Dry Skin
Yes, this body lotion is expensive, but that’s why it’s in a luxurious beauty products list. I use this on my hands as well, so it does do double duty. You can sample this at Sephora and the 6.8 oz tube is $41. Too much money for soft supple skin? Put it on your Christmas wish list! You’ll love having this around in December.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
What I love about this cleanser - immediate results. While I’m still splashing water on my face to rinse off this exceptional cleanser, my face feels like a million bucks! See it at Sephora for $38 for a 5.1 oz tube. My personal preference is for non-foaming, rinse off cleansers, and Fresh has made me a huge fan with this soy cleanser. They have pre-packaged samples. I tried it once, and that’s all it took to get me to buy the full size.
Lancome Galatee Confort Comforting Milky Cream Cleanser Dry Skin
Prior to falling in love with the Fresh cleanser, I used Galatee practically all my adult life. I swear I used to think this had addictive ingredients, because try as I might to find a cheaper alternative, I just missed this cleanser so much. Galatee is available at Macy’s for $51 for the 13.5 oz with pump dispenser. I’m crazy about this creamy cleanser, but for now, I am having an affair with the Fresh Soy Cleanser. Only time will tell if I come back to it.
Lancome Tonique Douceur
This is an alcohol-free toner. I have sensitive skin and this never irritates. It contains distilled flower water and it feels like you’re doing your skin a great service each time you use it. The 6.8 oz is $25 at Sephora and you can choose the Tonique Confort with honey almond seed extract if you prefer. I have never tried that one. I’ve been using this for as long as I can remember and never had a reason to switch.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30
A lightweight tinted moisturizer that really hydrates your skin, comes in eleven shades, has great reviews and is by Nars – you can’t lose! It’s pricey at $42 for a 1.9 oz tube at Sephora, but you only use a little.
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish
At $32 for 3.4 oz at Sephora, it better be good. Right? Right! Let’s FACE it, you have to exfoliate.You can choose a drugstore option which has large particles that actually cut your face, or a more expensive choice that has rave reviews like the Flawless Skin Face Polish.
Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream
I’ve been a fan of Origins Ginger collection for ages and when I read all of the great reviews for this eye cream, I just had to try it. Retailing at $30 for a 0.5 oz jar, this will last a surprisingly long time. Another product with great reviews from a great brand. Very effective!
These seven luxury beauty products can make a huge difference in your skincare and unfortunately, your pocketbook. Accumulate at your own pace. The biggest problem is once you use the best, you won’t settle for less. A good cleanser, an exfoliator that doesn’t cut, and a moisturizer, as your skincare routine, is all you need to look the best you can. Have you tried any of these or are you tempted to do so?
