I first met Ariane Turner as a makeup artist in 2019, but it was her perfectly dewy natural complexion that drew me to her. Brown, golden, poreless, I immediately asked her what her secret was. Little did I know, Turner, who’s also a skincare educator and “beauty industry OG,” would be bottling up her expertise and sharing it with the masses just a little over a year later. Enter Look Good Live Well, a line of products “formulated for melanin-rich women and men who are done dealing with dark spots.”
Considering the melanin-rich tend to be disproportionately affected by dark spots, otherwise known as hyperpigmentation, Turner’s brand is spot on. The Exfoliating Mask, made from a mix of enzymes and acids, is the bestseller of the collection, crafted to not only remove dark spots but prevent them from returning. Glycolic Acid, Gotu Kola, and Reishi Mushroom are the star ingredients, working together to slough off dead skin, stimulate collagen production, deliver hydration, and speed up skin’s healing process to get you to that bright, glowy complexion Turner has even faster. And you only have to leave it on for five minutes once or twice a week to reap the benefits.
Though highly coveted, The Exfoliating Mask is just one of many effective, yet gentle products in the line. Check out the rest below.
