You Want It: The $12,500 Facial Is Here

If your eyes are the gateway to your soul, perhaps your face is the porthole to your pocketbook. Launching this May in the United States is the Biologique Recherche Haute Couture program, which just might be the world’s most expensive set of facials. Spearheaded by Dr. Philippe Allouche, head of creation of all Biologique Recherche formulas, the six-month facials/customized product program took four years to create and costs a mere $12,500 – no, that’s not a typo.
