But there’s always something a little more exclusive for those who can afford it, isn’t it? Well, the makers of the magic cream launched this precious offering retailing at a astounding £12,500 ($20,000). Yes, for just a pot of cream, no face-lift on purchase.
But what makes it so expensive? Well, ‘sadly’ just its packaging! This special Crème de la Mer was designed by Boucheron, the famous fine French jeweler. Keeping with Crème de la Mer oceanic theme, Boucheron chose mother-of-pearl for the precious case, going on to embellish the jar with their Clous de Paris motif (think about there famous rings!) in gold and a sea blue saffir cabochon. For a cream that was created by an aerospace physicist, the cream has a fan following including celebrities like Sienna Miller, Yasmin Le Bon, Kate Moss, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lopez.
