Crème de la Crème

 Give your face some tender loving care with skin care creams from big cosmetic brands

 Limited Edition

From the Cle de Peau Beaute line of Shiseido comes this limited edition face cream ‘La Crème’, which is five times more expensive per gram than gold. The 50-gram jar, which was introduced earlier this year to mark the company’s 30th anniversary, features 30 layers of crystals and three platinum rings on its top. Price: $10,769

It’s Platinum

Laced with shimmer and hints of precious metals, the Cellular Cream Platinum Rare from La Prairie is described as the ultimate rejuvenating salve. In this, platinum is combined with peptides to create a wrinkle control cream, which is designed to adjust to the changing humidity levels and the temperature of the skin by releasing moisture as and when needed by the skin. Price: $1140

Gold Dust

As the name indicates, Chantecaille ‘Nano Gold’ Energising Cream is infused with gold particles – 24-carat gold, to be precise. Interestingly, this gold is connected to the silk fibres in the cream, which aid skin cell regeneration as well as collagen production for a vibrant skin. It is said to diminish lines, wrinkles, dullness and even dryness. Price: $420

 

 

 

Silk Touch

Koishimaru silk, described as a precious Japanese silk (said to have been once reserved exclusively for the Japanese Royal Family), is the main ingredient in Kanebo Sensai Collection Premier. The Cream also includes Japanese seaweed extract and beta-carotene – all of which hydrate the skin and renew its cells. Price: $650

 

Royal Jelly

Royal jelly, the sole nourishment of queen bees, blends harmoniously with 24-carat gold in this Orlane Creme Royale. It relies on the principle that gold has intrinsic properties to aid skin firming. And the royal jelly, the other main ingredient in this cream, is, basically, the secretion of honeybees that is fed to bee larvae. Classified as an anti ageing cream, it is said to tone the skin and regenerate cells, while reducing wrinkles. Price: $650

Orchids

Fancy orchids in a face cream? Apparently, this crème de la crème of the floral world has several aces up its pretty bloom to help moisturise and brighten complexion, while reducing age signs. ‘Imperiale Orchidee Molecular Extract’, packed in the ‘Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale Cream Next Generation’, is said to aid in suppressing all signs of ageing, while infusing the skin to make it appear plumper and radiant. Price: $410

Global Cream

The Sisleya Global Anti-Age Cream is specifically designed for those over 30; the ones who are savvy and are constantly on the lookout for ways to protect skin from daily stresses. Designed as a complete anti ageing cream, it infuses the skin with elements that preserve youthful texture and reduce negative effects of hormonal changes. It contains a bouquet of plant-based extracts as well as vitamins for skin regeneration.  Price: $490

Serum escape

Packed with Vanilla Planifolia PFA, the Chanel Precision Sublimage Serum Essential Regenerating Cream is said to be effective in renewing as well as modifying the complexion. As per the product description, Planifolia PFA (from Vanilla Planifolia orchid) is created through an exclusive purification technique developed by Chanel, who claims that it uses 231.5 pounds of Vanilla Planifolia to produce 35.2 ounces of Planifolia PFA. Price: $375
