Bésame Cosmetics is a luxury brand that throwbacks the vintage glamour we are missing today. The historically inspired brand sells lipsticks, mascaras, and now skincare. The owner, Gabriela Hernandez, a Buenos Aires native, a designer, and cosmetics historian started Bésame Cosmetics in 2004.

Gabriela always had an artistic side and an affinity for color. When she created Bésame Cosmetics, she wanted products that represented a time when a woman had beautiful romantic products on her vanity that she could enjoy and use.

Even though 10-step routines and complicated products have become the trend over the last few years, these four innovative creams bring us back to a simple skincare routine. Each product is designed to have clean, fragrance-free ingredients that work and give you glowing, supple skin. Each cream also comes with a custom self-massage application for each product, turning your skincare routine into a self-care routine.

The Skincare Essentials Include:

  • Day Cream
  • Vanishing Cream
  • Cold Cream
  • Night Cream

“Once a vital part of any woman’s skincare and makeup routine, vanishing cream fell out of fashion in the 1950s. Thankfully, Gabriela’s brought back this powerful primer that evens-out skin tone, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and creates a perfect base for makeup.”
