It’s true that great skincare doesn’t need to come with a hefty price tag. But that doesn’t stop Estée Lauder from formulating its top-of-the-line anti-aging collection, Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond, with one of the world’s rarest ingredients: French black diamond truffles, which go for about $900 per pound.
Yes, the same ingredient you find delicately shaved over a bowl of decadent pasta is distilled and extracted in each of the Re-Nutriv Diamond cream, mask, and serum formulations. It’s said to be a potent anti-aging ingredient. We know what you’re thinking: is it worth the $405 per bottle price tag? Do truffles actually do anything for your skin? Why not just eat them instead?
