The Cream (La Creme) is one of the growing number of prestige moisturizers with ultra prestige prices. The former version of this product contained the skin-lightening agent arbutin, making it effective for those seeking an high-end product to handle discolorations. This version is arbutin-free and, considering the cost, free of anything that justifies the price.

Without going into my long, detailed disclaimer, in a nutshell: I got this on some special promotion with a Saks giftcard. I really like this creme. I love a rich creme, and sometimes use Vaseline on my face, which is probably what this stuff is. If this was $50 a jar (or even $150!) I would say it's an excellent moisturizer and move on, but it is impossible not to mention and take into account the prohibitive (and criminally insane) price tag. However, when you buy a skin care regime that costs more than your winter coat, you tend to go about the process differently and more thoroughly. My face is so smooth. I have good skin so I rarely see a difference in it, but I have to admit, it looks supple, smooth and even.
