When it comes to anti-aging, apparently no price is too high! Dr. Alexandrides of 111 Skin crafted the Celestial Black Diamond Cream, which was developed with former Soviet space scientists. Derived of a potent Vitamin C derivative, Escin, and black diamonds (yeah, you read that right), the cream increases antioxidants that protects and repair skin as well as increase circulation for better absorption. While the black diamonds aren’t active ingredients, it pushes the price up to $1,095. Time to pay up, kittens. [Fashionista]
