Mr. Jan’s feedback 
After using it for one week, I didn’t see any difference in my skin. In fact, I found that when I just use the cream alone I didn’t get enough hydration. The cream just sits on top of my skin. I have to lay a hydrating serum on top of it to keep my skin hydrated. By the way, I have very dry skin so if you have normal to dry skin, you may find this product to be perfect!!

I love the scent of this cream. It’s very light with a lavender & herb scent. I love anything that smells natural herbs. The texture of the cream is very smooth and velvety.   But would I recommend that you spend $795 on this? No I wouldn’t. Honestly, I don’t expect a miracle but, for this price, I expected the cream to at least keep my skin hydrated without having to layer on other serum.
If you are new to luxury brands and want to upgrade your current skin care ritual, I would recommend you spend your money on a great serum, as serum will address skin concerns and it will penetrate into the skin more than face creams. Face creams serve as a barrier to keep your skin hydrated.

Let me know if you will you pay for a luxe face cream and if you have any great recommendations.
