L.A.'s Most Instagrammable Spa Le Jolie Shares Its Top Skincare Products

Shani Darden Retinol Reform

"Retinol Reform is an amazing treatment product that will boost collagen in the skin, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, reduce hyperpigmentation, and it can even help with acne. Lactic Acid lightly exfoliates for immediate brightening and niacinamide helps to even out skin tone. It's a must have treatment product to address multiple concerns!"

Shani Darden Daily Cleansing Serum

"A gentle yet effective cleanser is a staple for any skincare routine. This one will thoroughly cleanse the skin without stripping it. Oat bran extract helps to repair the skin's barrier and prevent moisture loss, and Olive and Chicory Leaf Extract will help to calm inflammation."

iS Clinical Pro-Heal Serum

"iS Clinical's Pro-Heal Serum is an antioxidant serum with vitamins C, E, & A to protect the skin from environmental stressors and soothe the skin. This is one of my favorites to brighten and protect skin to keep it youthful and glowing!"

Déesse Premium Led Face Mask

"LED light therapy is my favorite treatment for aging in reverse! LED light boosts collagen in the skin and increases circulation to give the skin an amazing glow. I use my Deesse Mask every single day to get all of the benefits."

DR NIGMA TALIBHydrating and Plumping Serum No1

"I love a hyaluronic acid serum to deeply hydrate the skin. Dr. Nigma's Serum No 1 has marine peptides and plant stem cells to plump up the skin and minimize fine lines."

Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen

"Everyday Sunscreen is lightly hydrating and doubles as your daily moisturizer while also keeping your skin protected! Sunscreen is the most important thing you can do for your skin to keep it healthy."
