Ever entertained the idea of spending half your paycheck on a moisturizer? Before you hand over your plastic, find out what makes expensive creams so pricey
The Ingredients: Rather than bombarding the formula with an army of different ingredients -- which can sometimes cancel each other out when it comes to benefits -- Chanel focused on one source. They blend both the fruit and the flower from the rare Vanilla plant to create something they named Enriched Planifolia PFA. It makes skin glow, improves texture, and firms.
The Packaging: A substantial black and gold jar features the iconic Chanel logo on the cap.
Our Take: "I tried it for a week and noticed a difference in the texture of my skin -- it's softer and feels more hydrated even a few hours after I apply the cream. And what can I say -- I'm a sucker for the C's." -- Dawn Davis, NYC Beauty Editor
