Can Somebody Donate $1,147.50?

Or perhaps $250? It's for a good cause.

What's the cause?

'Cause I want to try this new face cream by Estée Lauder.Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Cream
And that is how much it costs: $1,147.50. One Thousand One Hundred Forty Seven Dollars and Fifty Cents.

Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Cream is what it is called, and it:
"Effectively reduces visible aging lines, Provides instant lift & hydration, Ensures a young-looking complexion, Unique ingredient helps skin from sagging, Boosts its natural production of collagen."

At first I thought it must be a typo and was going to send an email letting them know...

But just to be safe, I checked the Estée Lauder website, and discovered that the 1.7 oz. jar of Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Cream sells for $250.00 and that by purchasing the 8.6 oz. jar, I would be saving $117.21.

How often do you get the chance to save $117.21 on a jar of face cream?

Plus, if it costs that much, it must be good!

For that kind of money I better end up looking like I am 12.


Update! March 20th: Believe it or not, someone was generous enough to actually donate to the "Estée Lauder Face Cream Fund"! Tradeswind's, a bathroom vanities shop (with really gorgeous stone sinks, btw) has donated $25 dollars towards the acquisition of the fabulous Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Cream. Perhaps if enough people donate, I can actually purchase some and tell you for sure if it is worth the price...

I found you through 50shousewife :) I would think that your assessment is correct. If I pay that much for face cream, I better look amazing! lol

Wow...let's see, face cream, or my mortgage for a month? Really, it's a toss up. As you can probably tell from my user pic, I'm ALL about the beauty products. *cough*
