Find it in: Carita Diamant De Beaute – Diamond Cream
If you love diamonds and money is not an object, you’ll probably squeal at the thought of slathering this lavish cream on your face. Aside from sequoia buds and blue lotus, this cream features precious diamond dust, which soothes skin and reflects light particles, leaving your complexion radiant and luminously youthful. But that’s not the only thing that warrants this product’s hefty price tag. The founders of this 70-year-old French skin care line are also the same people behind La Maison de Beaute, the upscale beauty salon in Paris with a client list that includes some of the biggest names in French haute couture. Any questions?
If you can’t be bothered to go to a spa or your facialist like the rest of the world, then this opulent mask is for you. Infused with pure 24-karat and colloidal gold, this mask locks in moisture, keeps skin firm by inhibiting collagen and elastin breakdown and leaves your skin with that priceless, radiant glow. Peridot, an ancient, magnesium-rich gemstone, fights cellular oxidation and environmental stress, while tried-and-true ingredients hyaluronic acid and glycerin deliver intense hydration.
Find it in: Cor Silver Soap
Silver has long been known as one of the best natural antibacterial agents. Physicians and alternative-medicine practitioners worldwide use it for medicinal purposes, mainly for its ability to block bacteria’s ability to transfer oxygen through their cell walls. That is the premise behind this revolutionary soap, which brilliantly removes makeup along with acne-causing impurities. On top of that, it also evens out skin tone, reduces the appearance of dark spots and pore size, maintains the skin’s natural moisture factor and protects against sun damage. It truly is the best face-cleansing wash money can buy.
Find it in: Sjal Saphir Concentrate
Sapphire is the second hardest mineral on earth next to diamond, but did you know that it offers a calming effect when crushed and applied to skin? That’s the promise of this super-luxurious concentrate. Infused with Himalayan blue sapphires, aquamarine and an artisanal blend of rare essential oils, this “liquid silk” visibly diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, increases elasticity and plumps and revitalizes the skin.
Find it in: Dr. Brandt Do Not Age Transforming Pearl Serum
This serum features Dr. Brandt’s exclusive Juvenessence+ Complex, a combination of algae and paracress flower extracts that revitalizes skin and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. But what makes this serum so luxurious isn’t so much about its ingredients but rather about the sophistication of its delivery system. DuoPearl, a pearl-like capsule that encapsulates the formula, is the result of five years of research and six patents. Produced one by one, it serves as a mini laboratory, locking the ingredients inside until you need them to ensure maximum potency and preservation.
Find it in: Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub Advanced
Created by board-certified dermatologist Gary Goldfaden, this revolutionary exfoliating treatment rivals in-office microdermabrasion treatments with 100% pure ruby crystals, which effectively removes dull skin cells and boosts skin’s ability to reflect light for a radiant, soft-focus glow. By sloughing off debris, it also allows other key ingredients—organic red tea and hyaluronic acid—to penetrate more deeply and perform their skin-plumping magic.
Find it in: DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Amethyst Clay Detox Mask
Purple has long been considered a royal color, which makes amethyst a favorite among monarchs and royalty. But apart from the color, this mask features magnesium-rich amethyst clay, which absorbs impurities and detoxifies skin without removing its natural oils. Add the antioxidant benefits of vitamin C, kakadu plum, Tasmanian pepper and muntari berries and you have a treatment fit for a queen.
Find it in: bareMinerals Stroke of Light™ Eye Brightener
This innovative eye brightener is unlike anything you’ve seen before. It evens skin tone under the eyes, covering up under-eye bags and dark circles immediately, to give you a well-rested, more youthful appearance. But the best part? Its weightless texture sets to a silky finish that never settles into fine lines or wrinkles. This unique attribute supposedly comes from mineral jade powder, which provides a natural-looking sheer finish to mask the appearance of imperfections. It also features mineral amethyst and pearl to enhance the appearance of your skin over time.
Though not a precious stone, caviar is considered a luxury enjoyed only by a chosen few—especially the kind that you extravagantly slather on your hair. This anti-aging hair mask infuses hair with intense moisture as it repairs chemical and environmental damage with vitamin C, cytokines and—you guessed it—caviar extract, smoothing the hair shaft and increasing shine after just one treatment.
