World’s Most Expensive Body Cream?

This Month, Kanebo is launching what it believes  to be the most expensive body cream on the market.

At $400 for 6.7 oz, indeed Sensai Premier Body Cream outpaces at least one of the category’s most prestigious competitors, La Mer, which sells its body cream for $195, a bargain — comparatively speaking — for a 10.3-oz jar.

But will consumers think the product is worthy of such a price tag?

“We are pretty confident that the body cream will be just the right fit and we are quite confident the consumer will respond to it,” said Juliano Gomis, national training director, Kanebo Cosmetics USA. Sensai Premier.

What do you think? Will you be plunking down 400 bucks to snag a bottle of the cream?

Eco-friendly French skin care firm Patyka is opening its first store in the U.S. next month, a 450-square-foot outpost that will be located in Manhattan’s West Village.

“The idea is to combine organic and luxury,” Andrew Corrie, president of New York-based Patyka USA, said of the Ecocert-certified brand’s positioning.

In addition to showcasing the brand’s 50-plus face care products; body oils, creams and washes, and fragrances (priced from $32 to $59), the new space, at 33 Carmine Street, will have a room for facial treatments and a cosmetics consultation area.

All you NYC readers have to let me know all about it once it opens its doors!

Have a great weekend!

  1. the flower edition is beautiful!!
    400 for a body cream? hell naw!! I am PJ, i splurge from time to time..but i know my limits!!

  2. I agree, $400 is a bit too much for a body cream. It makes La Mer seem reasonable!


  3. Hey, it’s a nice product. I too tried it; Mineral Viel absorbs the oil and protects your face from dust and moisture. So it is the best oil absorbing product as far as i concern. Congrats for Mineral Viel for being a best Sephora beauty product. Thank you
