There are so many beauty brands out there that it would probably take months in order to tally them all up. Out of the practically endless options, Lancôme is as classic as a Chanel bag: The 80-year-old, luxury French-born company has long been a dependable choice for skin-care and makeup essentials, and continues to launch derm-approved favorites each year. Given the brand’s vast collection, it’s hard to choose just one fave, but a dermatologist is particularly fond of two that she considers the best Lancôme skin-care products you can buy.
Lancôme is known for its high-end perfumes, potent skin-care staples, and iconic makeup products (like its Dèfinicils High Definition Lengthening Mascara, $28, which delivers), but board-certified dermatologist Shirley Chi, MD, swears by the brand’s sensitive and dry skin-friendly elixirs. Keep scrolling for her two faves, which she considers the absolute best Lancôme skin-care products out there.
“This is my favorite Lancôme product,” says Dr. Chi of the brand’s eye makeup remover. “It’s a gentle makeup remover that’s safe for sensitive skin, and it’s great for removing the heaviest eyeliner without pulling the skin or causing redness.” The formula uses a lipid phase (to lift away makeup) combined with an emollient-spiked water phase to slough off residue without fazing your skin.

If you’re dealing with skin that’s feeling dry or dehydrated, Dr. Chi recommends this mask. “This would be good for dry skin in the winter,” she says. It’s a hybrid between a cream and a sheet mask, and it works by delivering 20 grams of marshmallow-soft cream that’s spiked with hydrating linoseed extract. The sheet holds the ingredients in place as they work to penetrate your skin, pushing moisture deep within your complexion. Twenty minutes later, and your skin is completely rejuvenated and quenched.
