Luxury skincare brands bank on people’s perpetual desire for eternal youth and to look attractive. These products promise to improve the skin’s structural stability, restore moisture, and bring back radiance.

Our lives are changing fast. Several factors, including ever-growing pollution, stress, and the changing food habit, hurt our skin’s health. More and more people are thus clinging to skin nourishment products that offer hope to them.

More exotic ingredients are being introduced in face creams and other skin care products, and intensive research is being conducted to find that magic potion.

Here, we list 8 of the most expensive face creams from around the world. As new products are launched every day, it is practically impossible to track all of them. This list is compiled based on the information available on the websites of the top luxury skincare brands.
