When it comes to caring for our skin, we are often inundated with so many choices. From toners and eye creams to moisturizers and cleansers, we end up having to purchase a ton of products to solve our skincare concerns. As you peruse the aisles and weigh out your options of whether to go for the cheaper brand or buy that 200-dollar cream you’ve heard so much about, how do you really know if it’s worth the splurge? Luckily here at BeautyDesk, we’ve got your back. We found some of the top products in the market right now that are worth spending that extra dime on.
We’ve heard of skincare that sources their ingredients from some of the most sacred places on the planet but Fresh takes it to another level with their Crème Ancienne ($350) couture cream. Inspired by the world’s first cream, each jar is actually hand-blended in a monastery to preserve its natural ingredients and rich history. According to Fresh, Crème Ancienne contains such fragile ingredients that each must be poured in a particular sequence at a determined temperature—requirements that can only be met by hand. Fresh turned to a monastery to hand-blend each jar because monks are an important part of the cream’s heritage. Historically, if a formula was not produced by a monk, it was considered witchcraft. Without them, the original formula would not exist today. So is it worth the splurge? The formula is proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in depth and length, providing a significant, anti-oxidative effect for 24 hours which delivers instant and long-lasting hydration. We say treat yourself!
