Here’s a list of five of the most expensive beauty products.

Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Cure Face Treatment – R22 700

This intensive, four-week treatment is supposed to accelerate the renewal cycle of your skin, to leave you with a visibly younger-looking complexion in 28 days. This product contains four vials, each of which is designed to address a different skin concern. Weeks one and two focus on stimulating and activating the regenerative process of your skin, which allows for better absorption of the Imperial Orchid Molecular Extract in weeks three and four. This treatment also comes with a twice-per-year recommendation. Which means a whopping total of R45 400 per year.

La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare – R22 500

In addition to the DNA-protecting and cell-recharging platinum, this skin-transforming formula contains exclusive ‘smart crystals’ to boost the anti-ageing properties accompanied by climate-activated hydration and moisture revival. The iconic jar, with lilac diamond-shaped inset, is practically famous due to its packaging.

Infused with 24-karat gold and essential oils, the 24k Nano Night Recovery delivers nutrients and hydration to the skin. Nano-gold (the key anti-ageing ingredient) is said to be small enough to efficiently penetrate the deep layers of your skin, ensuring a younger-looking, tighter, more radiant complexion.

La Prairie Cellular Serum Platinum Rare – R12 000

Serums are probably the best beauty splurge because they have the power to make serious skin improvements. Colloidal platinum, a rare precious metal, helps maintain the skin’s electrical balance, in order to preserve its youthful appearance and restore its natural moisture barrier. The futuristic-looking serum promotes skin clarity, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and helps maintain skin firmness.

Azature Black Diamond Nail Polish – R3.5 million

This product might not be a beauty product as such but it does, however, deserve a mention. At R3.5 million a bottle (yes million!) I’m sure you would agree that it’s a eye-watering price to pay for nail polish. Redefining extravagance, jewellery couturier Azature’s 267-carat diamond-infused ‘Black Diamond Nail Polish’ is the world’s most expensive nail polish, and is only sold in private at their Los Angeles headquarters. You’ll need a rather large diamond ring to go with that nail polish!
