Diamonds Forever?

Net-a-Porter now sells Beauty Products! Don't be too excited yet because some of their items are just ridiculous! Feast your eyes on this $590 face cream!

{Natura Bisse - Diamond Life Infusion $590}

I understand that beauty and youth comes at a cost, a very HIGH cost. Genetics can only take you so far and apparently for $590 it can help you get there. This cream is described as a "Facelift in a bottle" that uses cell-renewing life infusion serum. Let's look at the ingredients:

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Niacinamide, PEG-8, Pentaerythrityl Tetracaprylate/Tetracaprate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Methyl Gluceth-10, Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethoxydiglycol, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Propanediol, Lauroyl Lysine, Pentylene Glycol, Maslinic Acid, Allantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glyceryl Linoleate, Arginine, Ceratonia Siliqua Gum, Phospholipids, Algae Extract, Geranylgeranylisopropanol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Decyl Glucoside, Levan, Glyceryl Linolenate, Artemia Extract, Sodium Carboxymethyl Beta-Glucan, Zizyphus Jujuba Fruit Extract, Pentapeptide-31, Acetyl sh-Pentapeptide-35, Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Diamond Powder, Alcohol Denat., Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Lecithin, Butylene Glycol, Acrylates/C10- 30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Silica, Phenoxyethanol, Methylisothiazolinone, Phenethyl Alcohol, Sodium Benzoate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Fragrance (Parfum), Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Linalool, Coumarin, Amyl Cinnamal, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Mica

On the list is:
  1. Water - Makes sense to keep the skin hydrated.
  2. Glycerin - Every cream has this to provide a smooth touch to the skin
  3. Niacinamide - Water-soluble vitamin (vitamin B group), anti-inflammatory properties and can be tonic in high doses.

What I found MOST interesting is the Diamond Powder! Would that even be beneficial to your skin? I have spent my fair share on expensive creams but I may or may not try this one. Going on rant about the diamond powder I can't understand why that would be needed in a face cream. Reflecting light, providing an extra sparkle to the skin but I'm sure most woman would apply foundation, loose powder or some type of make up OVER their face creams in the morning. Maybe the diamonds shine through other make up or enhances it, who knows! Most importantly is this product cell-renewing???
