THE CUT, November 2016
Every week, Linda Evangelista tests a new moisturizer. She’s on number 52 right now — the 52nd prototype of a soon-to-be released new product that’s still being tweaked, which she receives each Wednesday at a cosmetic lab in Elwood, New Jersey.
Linda Evangelista: I first learned about Erasa from Georgia Louise, who does my facials. Her husband, Marc, gave it to me, along with a mug. And he’s not even in the beauty world, he’s in the financial world.
Linda Wells: A mug? Who needs a mug?
LE: I actually like the mug [Laughs], because it’s tall. I have these tall mugs, I like them.
Marc said “Would you try Erasa and give me some feedback?” I put it on my night table because I said, “I want to look this up.” But Georgia gave me this huge typed-out nighttime beauty routine. I put it in this little frame up on the wall. Jimmy, my brother, puts up shelves for me and I number the products. I’m so excited. But if it’s late at night and I have makeup on (which is rare) and then look at all that, I’m like, “Bye, bye.”
LW: So tell us more about your skincare history? Do you still go to facials?
LE: I go every week to Georgia Louise. It doesn’t always happen every week because she has to cancel or I’m not here, but I have a set appointment. I discovered her.
