In light of how much I test here at Beauty Professor, it’s rare for me to have products in my skincare routine that have remained staples for over six years but such is the case with Mila Moursi Paris.
I was first fortuitously introduced to Mila Moursi Paris back in 2015 (my initial review can be read HERE, with additional past reviews HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE and HERE) and have used the brand steadily since then. In the early days, Mila’s brand was carried exclusively at Barney’s New York (I miss BNY regularly, don’t you?) and then it expanded into other retailers I adored, including Beautylish and Neiman Marcus, gaining traction and devotees along the way.
The formulations–which protect skin from the five key factors of aging (free radical damage, dryness, fine lines, uneven skin tone and inflammation) are innovative and performance-driven while expertly taking care of sensitive skin. And I attribute a lot of my skin’s stability to the consistency with which I’ve used the line.

Kindly scroll on for more details as well as the Bottom Line…
// MY MILA MOURSI STAPLES //
Here are five products that have maintained their places on my skincare shelves for years on end.
Creamy and plush, this delicate calendula, arnica and resveratrol-rich foam adeptly cleanses without stripping skin, removing every last trace of dirt, oil and makeup while leaving my skin smooth and soft. I’ve gone through multiple tubes of this gem over the years.
This, along with the Dual Action Serum below, is the product that made me fall in love with the Mila Moursi line. When swept onto the skin (I use a cotton pad), it expertly clarifies and balances. Reducing excess oil production without drying. It also helps subsequent skincare steps to be better absorbed. I have tried a lot of toners in the past decade of Beauty Professor and this one–which contains resveratrol and lactic acid–easily ranks in my top two; every time I use it, my skin looks and behaves better…what else could one want?
This anti-aging powerhouse contains a unique blend of apple stem cells and hexapeptide 3 for firming, smoothing and a restoration of skin elasticity. Lightweight and instantly absorbed. It pairs perfectly with the toner above and, in my personal experience (with approximately 5 bottles of this elixir under my belt over the years), my skin looks tighter, brighter and clearer when I commit to this protocol.
For moments when my skin requires an overhaul (generally due to travel, stress and/or extreme fatigue), I reach for this formula. Multiple weights (this is important for efficacy and maximum levels of absorption) of hyaluronic acid drench skin in moisture while biopeptide EL optimum works to firm and tighten for noticeably revitalized skin.
Ever in search of a natural glow, I love a good beauty oil and this one–which is 100% natural–contains less common components including Tsubaki oil, Abyssinian and Inka Omegas 3, 6, and 9. Along with Neroli and Geranium essential oils for a sensorial experience that also creates radiant and hydrated skin. I love to apply a bit on my collar bone and décolletage for even more luminosity!
// NEWER LAUNCHES in the MILA MOURSI LINEUP //
Newer to Mila Moursi Paris, the Mila Moursi Hyaluronic Acid, Mila Moursi Illuminating Vitamin C Infusion and Mila Moursi Bio-Retinol Intensive Cellular Renewal are targeted and concentrated boosters that enhance moisture, brightness and cell turn over, respectively.
The Hyaluronic Acid delivers intense hydration, thanks to hyaluronic acids of various molecular weights. The Vitamin C Infusion boasts two stable forms of vitamin c for increased collagen production and skin that positively glows. The Bio-Retinol Intensive Cellular Renewal has a triple-dimensional (three different retinols!) system which enhances cell renewal and skin density while reducing signs of photo-aging (e.g., sun damage) with continued use, all the while mitigating potential irritation. It’s, dare I say it, the retinol of dreams.
If masking is your indulgence, then the Mila Moursi The Mask Collection, which features a trio of mask ingredient and focus profiles (COLLAGEN, ROYAL JELLY BIO-CELLULOSE MASK and GLOBAL ANTI AGE MASK) and the Mila Moursi Triple Action Eye Contour Masks (an orbital area rescue!) are a must. Beautifully crafted and instantly effective. These bio-cellulose masks are drenched with active ingredients that make a difference. And I deeply appreciate how well they adhere to the face. Allowing me to get things done while taking my skincare to the next level.
Read on for my thoughts on the glorious Mila Moursi SPF 30 and another special offer for Beauty Professor readers…
Finally, the *Miła Moursi Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 is a gel-based formula with UVA/UVB protection and a smooth, semi-matte, weightless finish (essential for summer). More than simply sun protection, this luxuriously silky gel contains peptides for firming and nourishing. And antioxidants to fight free radicals, making it a true skincare star.
Between July 12- July 19th and with code BP21, in addition to 30% off, you will receive a free full sized *Miła Moursi Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 with any purchase of $350 or more.
