Beauty Math: Is A Jar Of La Prairie Eye Cream Worth $350?

September 23, 2010 by Justine Schwartz

One thing every woman in our SHEfinds office wants – no matter the age – is eye cream. When one of us finds an eye cream that actually works, we all run out and buy it. And it’s no wonder – under eye wrinkles are the most common beauty gripe.

So, what happens when my editor Eileen and I find ourselves with a bottle of fancy $350 La Prairie eye cream? We try it, damnit. Well, ladies, the results are in: it DOES work as well as you think. After 30 days, we feel collectively 7 years younger (no real ages, sorry) and our skin is much brighter, awake and smooth. We even look like we got a few extra hours of sleep (we didn’t).

Before you run out and spend your life savings on a bottle, we’ve crunched the numbers so you know it’s worth it:

Of all the products we buy on a daily basis, good skin is priceless. While it might be a hard pill to swallow, splurging on an eye cream is a better investment than splurging on that second pair of black booties. The 20 ml bottle last approximately 6 months (180 uses), so for less than $2, you can feel softer, smoother and brighter for the day. Better than a shot of espresso, I’d say.
