It will sell.
 
2012-06-18 09:31:53 AM
At first glance I read the headline as "one pot of ice cream" and sat there thinking for a minute what kind of ice cream could possibly cost $13,000.

Wow $13K - is it made form unicorn semen?

Clé de peau beauté = Key of Skin Beauty (direct, word-for-word translation), or The Key to Beautiful Skin. Gotta love the names Japanese companies come up with.This one ain't bad, actually.

Also, to get this out of the way, there's no need to pay exorbitant amounts for skin care, as I can provide ladies with a high-protein face cream free of charge.

For that price Amanda Seyfried should be farking the hell out of the hubby while the dumbiatch is slapping that crap on her face. In the same way there are no thousand dollar a night hookers but plenty of thousand dollar a night johns this stuff is made out of the same FDA approved ingredients as all the rest.

I feel bad shelling out $25 for my moisturizer. Amazingly though, one of those lasts me three months and I think it's supposed to only last one, so I guess it all averages out.

No one should spend that much on a beauty product. No. One.

If you're willing to spend that much money on a cream to try and look better, you might have some deep-seated psychological issues.

You might be better off spending some of that money on counselling.

I enjoy my powders and paints as much as any girl, but a basic knowledge of high school chemistry has inoculated me against most of this pseudo-scientific garbage.

I once got told by a sales bimbo that the difference between the $30 facecream and the $130 facecream was that the $130 cream had "smaller atoms" to "better penetrate the skin."

I make and sell face cream and my best seller is a big jar of cold cream for $10. There is a reason people have been using that stuff for at least 2K years.

Or you could just stay off the beach and apply sun-block. It's too late to start applying skin cream when you've already baked your face into a catcher's mitt.

Ongoing debate in my household, she's gotta have the $15 shampoo and $15 conditioner, I buy my shampoo from the 99 cent store. I would argue the fact that all shampoo is pretty much the same, but I choose my battles wisely.

It's a little more complicated than that. Is she trying to avoid certain ingredients? There are a lot of shampoos and conditioners out there that have crap in them that leave a lot of shiat in your hair that actually builds up and weighs it down. There is also some that strips away the natural oils that the scalp produces and ends up damaging your hair.

So if her hair is lovely and soft and all that, let her keep it that way :)

In her defense, it could depend on if her hair is colored or not. I use a particular shampoo (only $7, but still) because its the same brand as the hair color I get, and they are made to work together so the color doesn't get stripped from her hair. Not all shampoos are the same. Some are for dry hair (extra moisture) but if I were to use that, I could wring oil from my hair twice a day (Mediterranean heritage- we's oily mofos). I use the type to pull oil out of my hair and it works quite well.

For most guys it doesn't matter though since you don't get a tenth of the damage we do from blow drying, curling, flattening, and in my case, heavily hair spraying to style it. You could just use whatever- unless you have dandruff, then a zinc compound would work for you.

You're a smart guy to pick your battles though.

I one time had a 23 year old salesgirl in a faux-labcoat try to convince me that some overpriced cream featured "peptides," making it the best thing in the universe. To be a dick, I enthusiastically encouraged her to tell me more about the cream, I ooohed and aaahed about how great it seemed, and then I asked her to explain what a peptide was and why peptides were so good for me. Her reply: "Hamada hamada peptide derrrrrrp."

the brand's luxurious creams come encased in 30 layers of crystal, in collectable handmade jars that are each adorned with three platinum rungs.

Fark the cream, that jar is something I put in the WANT category.

//But it is really cool, and I would like to play around with it for like ten minutes.

It is notable the jar that contains this cream is 92% of the cost, based on the "regular" version they are offering without the fancy packaging.

You're right, we get 0 of that damage. A bit of water, dab of suave hair cream (fitting, because I'm a smooth mother farker) and I'm out the door.

But it bends UV rays around the cream, preventing it from breaking down within the jar increasing the product's effectiveness and lifespan. It's well worth the cost.

Suave? Oooooo dang, you's a hip bastard. The ladies must line up around the block.

There's a reason I keep my hair so short. Two minutes to dry, one minute to spray into the ideal shape, done. As opposed to my sister, who hasn't had less than three feet of hair since she was 13. She goes through two bottles of shampoo every month and takes an hour to dry. Blecchhh.

Yup, because it's the cheapest. My hair is thick and dry. If I don't put anything in it, I get a fro. I prefer Gilette's cream, but it's hard as hell to find. I'm not even sure it's still made. But in all honesty, I'm a Dapper Dan man.

That and possibly selling one of their vacation homes! Holy lord!

Reminds me of a friend of mine- her aunt and uncle "cut back" by selling one of their THREE corvettes. Apparently they just wept and wailed and gnashed their teeth. I'm going, um, there's only two of you. How many cars do you need? More than that, can you drive more than one at once? Or is it a variety thing? Matching the car to their underwear?

Now, GRANTED. If I won the powerball, I'd have a 20 car garage full of toys. But not more than one of the same car. That's just silly.

I keep my hair long because it's easier to put it in a chignon or ponytail in the morning than short hair which has to be "styled". I hated short hair when I had it.
But you know what? Any style is beautiful on the person who likes it.

Except pixie-cuts. I hate those. I almost wept when Emma Watson chopped all her hair off in favor of the recently-shaved escaped-from-the-nunnery look.
