We all have been slaves for makeup products at one point in our lives And as skin care products are becoming a thing, we’re no exception. Resistance is futile as we get weaker to the presence of cute packaging, beautiful pigments and overflowing positive feedbacks. At some point in our lives, we’ve all saved up or impulse bought that most expensive skincare product we’ve always wanted to buy. And we’re still not guilty. Here some that we can relate:
Erno Laszlo Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm
“This balm is ultra moisturizing and feels incredibly luxurious. I use it like crazy before and after traveling to make sure my skin doesn’t dry out. Totally worth the price tag.” —Elyse K.
It thwarts inflammation and irritation with tamanu oil, which allows the skin to repair itself more readily. Dromiceius oil helps stimulate cell renewal. And it also contains marine extracts that act as water magnets, helping to hydrate skin and encouraging moisture retention.
Total Damage: $255
Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask
User Zulacar said, the most expensive item in her routine, however, goes to the Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask, priced at $162 for 60ml. “Love how luxe it feels and will repurchase, but ultimately, not worth the price,” she summed up.”
Black Rose is plumping, moisturizing, radiance-giving. The results are pretty amazing in just a few minutes, skin looks more youthful, brightened, and energized. It’s great for all skin types but especially good if your skin is feeling dry and parched.
Total damage: $162
Vintner’s Daughter Serum
“Vintner’s Daughter serum has been crowned the most expensive skincare item in my stash, also the most recent purchase,” Bongsunthecat revealed. That’s the Active Botanical Serum. Much has been said about this face oil, which contains all sorts of botanicals and essential oils, but we’re still trying to absorb that crazy sticker tag.
Total damage: $185
La Prairie Cellular 3-Minute Peel
It resurfaces dull skin tones with a combination of AHAs, BHAs and fruit acids to reveal fresh baby soft skin. However, it justifies its price by claiming to use professional-strength AHAs and BHA and stating that it works without irritating skin.
Total damage: $270
Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask
“If bright and glow-y is your thing, this creamy Vitamin C mask is killer. You see a difference fairly quickly. Who doesn’t love instant gratification?” —Bee Shapiro
The consistency is rich and creamy, with a barely-there, floral scent, and it glides on like a heavy moisturizer. As the mask dries, there’s a pleasant, tightening sensation as the anti-aging superfoods cleanse the skin of any pore-clogging dirt and debris.
Total damage: $68
La Mer Eye Balm Intense
It uses tourmaline to hydrate and reduces fine lines, paired with a petite silver applicator to boost circulation and wake up tired eyes. Tip: Put applicator in the fridge the night before to cool and reduce puffiness.
Total damage: $270
