Remede Hydra Therapy Lift Creme
Remède Hydra Therapy Lift Crème
Though we find most chichi skincare trappings pretty silly (the tiny spoon, the mother-of-pearl box), we do love dipping into a luxuriously weighty jar of face cream, like Remède Hydra Therapy Lift Crème ($130; BlueMercury.com). Inside you won't find caviar or 24-karat gold, but a rich blend of far more proven skin soothers: essential fatty acids and antioxidant vitamins. The cream soaks in quickly, leaves skin feeling silky for hours, and is paraben-free. If you want to splurge on yourself, this is chichi with substance.
