A fun fact about me: While I very much enjoy the star-studded sightings that occur regularly here in L.A. (I’ve spotted everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Jonah Hill at my nearest grocery store), I’m significantly giddier when I get to meet one-on-one with the experts who enhance our fave celeb’s god-given beauty—whether its an A-list makeup artist, facialist, or, most recently, the cosmetic dermatologist for Hollywood’s elite, Simon Ourian, MD. (And yes, if the name sounds familiar, you’ve likely already met him via episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.)
Although Ourian caters to some of the most recognized faces in the industry (the Kardashians and Jenners, Megan Fox, Sofía Vergara, Jasmine Tookes, Olivia Culpo… the list goes on) and his cosmetic services are justifiably pricey, I was intrigued to find out that his just-launched line of skincare, MDO Skin, is surprisingly affordable, with every individual product, excluding the kits, sliding in at the under-$100 mark. What’s more, his elite clientele use and swear by the line. Obviously, I needed to learn more, right?
