Amazon Has a Secret Section of Professional Skincare From Dermatologist-Approved Brands
La Roche-Posay.

By virtue of my job as a beauty editor, I’ve entrusted my face to seemingly half of NYC’s skin care professionals, including esteemed dermatologists and celebrity estheticians. Along the way, I’ve compiled a mental roster of skincare brands plus specific all-star products that the pros recommend most consistently. 

When I stumbled upon Amazon’s Professional Skincare section — a shoppable curation of products typically sold by estheticians and dermatologists in their offices — it was as if Amazon had actualized the mental rolodex I’d compiled over the years. This secret pro-skincare section is helpfully organized by skin concern, product type, and brand (36 of them, to be exact). Though I consider myself well-versed in skincare, I’ve discovered new products and even unfamiliar brands as I’ve been clicking around. Below, you’ll find some truly stellar skincare picks plucked from Amazon’s Professional Skincare section to start your shopping journey.

EltaMD UV Active SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Lotion


Shop now: $34;

Perhaps one of the most frequently recommended mineral sunscreens, EltaMD UV Active SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Lotion is a gentle, fragrance-free facial SPF lauded by skincare professionals everywhere. With SPF 50 and broad spectrum protection, it’s the perfect year-round pick. Plus, it’s genuinely non-greasy, making it a no-excuses pick for the sunscreen-averse. The formula is also available in a tinted version — which is a go-to for celebrities like Hailey Bieber.

Vichy LiftActiv Supreme Night Cream


Shop now: $50;

Hailing from France, the springwater-infused Vichy Minéral 89 Serum is a go-to for board-certified dermatologist Dr. Marisa Garshick, who previously told InStyle it “boost[s] moisture and plump[s] the skin.” FWIW, Selena Gomez uses the brand, too.

iS CLINICAL Super Serum Advance


Shop now: $158;

As board-certified dermatologist Dr. Diane Madfes previously told InStyle: iS Clinical Active Serum C “is an all-around fabulous product,” specifically for “treating acne and preventing wrinkles." The brand offers an array of glow-enhancing goodies, most of which are available at Amazon — including Julianne Moore’s skin-brightening go-to, iS Clinical Pro Heal Serum Advance +.

Eau Thermale Avene RetrinAL


Shop now: $74;

Dermatologists often hail retinoids as unparalleled antiagers. The Eau Thermale Avène RetrinAL 0.1 Intensive Cream contains the strongest over-the-counter retinoid available, retinaldehyde, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Farhang previously told InStyle. For this reason, it’s potent and positively line-reducing, shoppers say. 

Revision Skincare Revox Line Relaxer


Shop now: $151;

While nothing tops the wrinkle-smoothing prowess of an injectable neurotoxin (e.g. Botox Cosmetic), this topical treatment could be the next best, needleless alternative. According to an InStyle interview with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michelle Henry, the Revision Skincare Revox™ Line Relaxer can certainly supplement in-office ‘tox treatments, too. Hyaluronic acid plumps fine, dryness-induced lines, while peptides smooth skin over time. Plus, the product’s wandlike applicator facilitates breezy application, particularly in small, crinkle-prone areas, including under the eyes and above the lip.

SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator


Shop now: $111 (Originally $124);

Of all the splashy serums in the neverending stream of hyaluronic acid (HA) products, SkinMedica’s has reeled in some of the most consistent acclaim. InStyle selected HA5 as one of the best hyaluronic acid serums thanks to its skin-quenching benefits and impressive number of HA molecule types — five, hence the name. I’ve noticed SkinMedica products in countless dermatology offices, and understandably so: Its products, though pricey, prove consistently phenomenal
