You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
This time last year, the Cut’s beauty director Kathleen Hou dubbed this luxuriously rich cream “the secret to rich-person skin” because not only does the expensive price tag really allow only said rich people to buy it, but it’s also beloved by celebrities — like Victoria Beckham, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Kate Bosworth — and beauty industry pros alike. Rio admits she has never used it before, but recommends it for brides looking to take their skin “to the next level” before their big day, and celebrity facialist Joanna Czech calls it “unforgettable.” We’ve also called it one of the best night creams because it’s great for “laziest nights when you don’t have time to slather on a million serums, but you still want all the anti-aging benefits.” That’s because formula is said to visibly reduce any signs of aging while brightening, tightening, and plumping up the skin by hydrating and restoring the moisture barrier.
And today, you can get this rarely on-sale cream for a smidge cheaper than usual at Violet Grey. With the code SPRINGCLEANING, you’ll get 20 percent off, so you too can have “rich-person skin.” The largest size, pictured above, has 50 mL of product for $212. But if you want to spend even less, there’s a 30 mL bottle for $136 and a 15 mL trial size for just $68.
