I Tried this Luxury Face Cream and Here’s What You Need to Know


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.



  1. I do remember that commercial. I love that it worked! Glad when products live up to what they promise.

    WoooHoo for $399, it had better be good. I am glad you had great results with it. I too remember the pearls craze. It looks like a beautiful cream.

  3. I am always looking for something new for smoother skin.

    Love the beautiful container thay holds ths luxurious fave cream. Way out of my price point, but itvmay be true that the expensive lotions are really good

    • I don’t think that’s necessary true. I’ve tried creams on the pricey side that didn’t deliver results. This one however, does work. So much that I had to share about it here. Thanks for visiting Yvonne!

    Tresor Rare also is also the manufacturer of Tourmaline BX Skin Relaxer, a concentrate recommended for people with dry skin. If you are always on the lookout for a high end serum that will help nourish your skin, Tourmaline BX is the best product you need to get to solve your dry-skin problem. It contains smoothing pearl powder and plant stem cells which work together to tone and refresh the skin, and those that have used this product can indeed confess that its results are amazing.
