The It-it: Retrouvé

For almost two decades La Mer has been the gold standard in face cream but there is a new crème de la crème. Retrouvé launched in 2013 and it's quickly becoming the moisturizer of choice by beauty junkies all over the world.

The Retrouvé skincare line is the brainchild of Jami Morse Heidegger and her husband Klaus Heidegger. Jami comes from a long line of beauty experts--her father and grandfather developed Kiehl’s. The story goes that the couple worked to create a personal line of products that contained the most exclusive and effective ingredients available on the market for her skin, in the highest possible levels of concentration, regardless of the cost.

Needless to say when the mandate of securing ingredients has no budget the product is going to be expensive. Prices range in price from $460 to $520-- about the same as a Botox treatment. The unisex line houses four core anti-aging products: facial moisturizer, face serum, face cream and eye concentrate. Each concoction contains no dyes, artificial fragrances, parabens or silicones and there is no animal testing. They are all really quite luxurious.

We figured that Retrouve was a good last resort before reverting to face freezing. If you're not willing to make such a large investment in the face cream, we suggest hitting Bergdorf Goodman. Their current beauty gift bag promotion includes a half-ounce of Retrouvé. The gift bag is free with any $275 fragrance or beauty purchase and contains lots of other wonderful products like, Tata Harper body oil, Kevyn Acoin eye pencil, Chantecaille face oil, Sulwhasoo serum and a roller ball Gardenia fragrance from Robert Piguet. You can see everything included int he beauty bag here.

Just don't be surprised when all your September fashion magazines have full page editorials about Retrouvé. It's sure to be the IT anti-aging face cream.
