I had been interested in this cream for quite awhile, but opted for others in the BR line because of the price of this one. Well, I finally broke down and purchased it, and now all I can tell you is that I wonder why I waited so long! Yes, it is pricey, but this creme is so incredible, you owe it to your face to purchase it! You will need far less of it for each application as it is so luxurious and like nothing I have ever used before. It is this expensive for a reason--it works! My daughter, in her mid thirties, came for a visit and absconded with mine--she said she is saving her pennies to buy herself a jar, and she has more creams and lotions for her face than anyone I know. Also, her skin is total perfection, and she swears by Biologique Recherche. Do yourself a favor and order a jar of this--it is worth every penny!!
