The skincare regime of my thirties is different than the beauty routine of my twenties. And while I still like to keep things streamlined and no fuss, I need my products to be efficient and show visible results. When I was approached by Tresor Rare, to test out their skincare line just in time for Mother’s Day, I knew that I wanted to give it a whirl. I’ve never used a luxury skincare cream with a whopping retail value of $399.00, and I wanted to see if their Ultimate Pearl Protecting and Defending Cream lived up to the hype.
If you’re a child of the 80s’ you may remember a certain (unrelated) commercial talking about the benefits of the pearl in ancient Chinese beauty. It turns out that pure pearl powder has been utilized for over 3,000 years as a Chinese beauty secret to brighten and beautify the skin. With promises of defending, protecting, depolluting and nourishing my face, I was exciting and perhaps a bit skeptical of giving it a go.
The verdict? After a few weeks of nightly (and sometimes morning like you’re supposed to do) applications, the cream is unlike any skincare that I’ve ever tried before. And I mean that it a good way. It makes my (typically normal) skin feel remarkably softer and smoother and made a visible difference in the lines surrounding my eyes. It even lightened two pesky old pimple spots that were beginning to take permanent residence on my face. I avoided it on mornings that I headed to spinning class (it’s a bit too rich for that) but layered an ample amount on every single night since the fancy box arrived on my doorstep. I’ll for sure be sad when I someday scoop out the last dabs of this product. If it’s in your price-point, Tresor Rare gets a double thumbs up. And if you’re looking for a gift to pamper and wow the hardworking mom this upcoming Mother’s Day, this cream is fit for your Queen.
