Best of Boston

1998 Best Skin Care

La Prairie at Saks Avenue

Magnificent moisturizers and exquisite exfoliates don’t come cheap, but Madeleine DeCarlo helps you separate the hype from the truly hygienic. She not only knows her own product line (tres chic and tres cher) but is happy to turn you on to must-haves sold by competitors.
