If you’re wondering where the super-rich gets their flawless skins and perfect teeth, the drugstore and the mall’s luxurious section aren’t the places to go. While they might have an affordable product in their everyday stashes, it’s not likely the main reason for their brilliant glow.
When it comes to their holy grail, expect a very luxurious tool or treatment that’s only exclusive for the less than 1%. But not all of them cost an arm and a leg, though, so if you want to get a taste of their beauty essentials, you’d find a few products here that’ll likely fit your budget.
But mind you; the high-end tools and treatments you’ll see in this list are sworn by some well-known personalities, so if you’re wondering whether the splurge is worth it, just take a look at their skins to decide.
Without further ado, these are some of the most expensive cosmetic and beauty tools A-listers treat themselves to:
1. Dermaplaning Tool
“Dermaplaning” is just a fancy term for a facial razor, but not an ordinary one. Rather, it’s an exfoliating blade that removes your face’s dead skin cells to give way for a smoother and brighter layer of skin. And the best thing about this tool is that it has an affordable version; super affordable, in fact, as it’s priced no more than $5, and comes with two spare blades.
2. UV Teeth Whitening Kit
If you’ve been following famous beauty gurus on YouTube for a while now, you’ve surely noticed a few of them using an odd instrument that they stick into their mouths and lights up. That’s actually a UV teeth whitening or bealching kit, a device that instantly whitens your teeth when you can’t book an appointment for bleaching. First, apply the minty gel (from the syringe-like tool) all over your teeth, then connect the UV mouthpiece into your phone before putting it on, so that it’ll light up. Let it sit for at least ten minutes, and voila! Instant pearly whites.
3. Quip Toothbrush
The rich and famous don’t normally have time for regular grocery trips, but that doesn’t mean they don’t get the best quality oral care products. Quip, a high-end oral care brand, will ship a new brush head and toothpaste at the dentist-recommended interval to you after your initial order. Their sleek toothbrushes come in classy colors too, including rose-gold, silver, and gold.
4. Facial Steamer
When you get a facial, the aesthetician would usually blow steam on your face before starting the procedure. But if you can’t wait for your next scheduled session before getting a good dose of steam, buy a facial steamer, which is around the size of a humidifier, and enjoy it anytime you feel like having a deep facial cleanse. The warmth of the steam will open up your pores and loosen the sebum, allowing you to remove the toxins and impurities from your face as you cleanse.
5. Bee Venom Facial
The bee venom facial is exactly what it’s called; an actual bee and its sting will be prodded onto your skin to treat its issues. Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, and Gwyneth Paltrow are some of the most famous and richest celebrities who love this facial, and by the looks of their perfect skins, getting stung by a bee doesn’t seem so dreadful anymore.
6. Real 24K Gold Mask
Who says gold is just for jewelry? If an American-themed diner in London had successfully launched a “Glamburger”, a Kobe Wagyu beef and venison burger with a bun covered in edible, real gold, then you can definitely treat your skin with the precious metal too. The 24K Gold Mask has been around for years, and it does wonders to the skin, healing infections like acne. Russian model Irina Shayk loves it, so you could say that it’s her secret to maintaining her gorgeous bronze skin.
7. Facial Cleansing Device
The Foreo LUNA 3 is probably the most popular facial cleansing device, but less pricey dupes are available as well. The sphere-shaped handheld device thoroughly cleanses your face and massages your skin, helping with blood circulation and relaxation. Its silicone material also prevents bacteria buildup, so rest assured that it won’t get dirty while it’s just sitting on your bathroom counter.
8. 20-Hands Duo Massage
Don’t we just love to get a massage after a long day at work? What if ten people give you that? Sounds intense, but the Grand Wailea Resort in Maui actually offered this service to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Ten pairs of hands will give you a 50-minute full-body massage for the hefty price of $2,000. It’s insanely expensive without a doubt, but you’ll probably never get the same service anywhere else.
That’s just some of the most luxurious beauty tools and treatments the affluent society loves. Money may not buy you happiness, but it’ll undeniably get you the highest level of convenience and pampering possible.
