It seems that society is completely obsessed with beauty and youth – it’s hard to turn on the television without having to watch at least a few commercials on new “breakthrough” lotions and “age defying” creams. This is all well and good if you can test some of these with a few extra dollars — but what about when they cost more than a month’s worth of mortgage payments and half of your kid’s university tuition? Take a look below at our list of some of the most expensive beauty treatments in the world:
La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare
Developed in Switzerland, this high-end treatment costs $588 per ounce and contains the most precious metal on earth: platinum. Maybe you’ll think twice about cleaning your face at night knowing that you’re washing all that money right down the drain.
Orlane Crème Royale
This antioxidant and skin firming treatment costs a pretty penny at $382 per ounce. Not only is this high cost cream sparkling with 24K gold, but it also contains Royal Jelly, the sweet substance that honeybees feed to their young larvae. If you wake up with ants on your face, then you’ll definitely know why.
