10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny!

There are a ton of luxury beauty products on the market and with so many options, it can be so difficult to weed out what’s amazing from what’s just mediocre and not really worth the steep price tag. Because I know this is a common issue and I often have had this own problem myself, I decided to share my top luxury beauty picks that I know truly are worth the cost.

10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny!

therapie equilibrium bath and shower essence - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

Roques O’neil Therapie – £38.00 – Equilibrium Bath & Shower Essence – Although all of the Therapie line products are amazing and truly help you feel more relaxed, calm and clear, this one is my absolute favorite, but at £38, it’s not exactly a bargain. While it’s true that it’s not the cheapest, this comes in luxurious black glass and is a shower oil that is truly great for nourishing skin, especially really sensitive skin types. You can see a full review on Therapie products – here

may lindstrom the good stuff radiance oil - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

May Lindstrom – $110 – The Good Stuff Radiance Oil – This is an all natural body, hair and skin oil that smells INCREDIBLE! Just like chocolate with something else you can’t quite put your finger on, this radiance oil comes in an incredibly luxe black glass bottle and has a bit of shimmer making it aptly nicknamed “Liquid Sunshine.” I’ve used this on my hair, body and skin and it’s amazing. It doesn’t irritate, it’s hydrating, and the slight shimmer feels so luxurious and fun. You can see my full review on this – here.

vintner's daughter active botanical serum - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum – $185 – This is the face serum to end all face serums. If you are the kind of person who wants one face oil/serum that does it all, THIS IS IT! The formula includes potent, organic plant oils and essences. What benefits can you expect? Clearer skin, diminished fine lines (and acne scars), more even skin tone, softer, calmer, and hydrated skin. No biggie. This one is worth it! It was originally sent to me for review, but I’ve since repurchased. You can read my full review on it here.

may lindstrom problem solver face mask - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

May Lindstrom Problem Solver Face Mask – $90 – Another May Lindstrom product, this not only smells like chocolate, but it actually looks like cocoa powder! Filled with all natural ingredients including activated charcoal, nutmeg, raw cacao and others, this face mask is one of the few that actually makes an instant difference to your skin after you use it. You WILL see the difference once you rinse the mask off. Your skin looks clear and calmer, pores look tighter and blemishes look smaller and less red. It has a somewhat warming effect to it so I’m not sure how sensitive skin would fare, but it’s ingredients are certainly more natural than most. See my full review on it – here.

leakey pure marula oil - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

The Leakey Collection – Pure Marula Oil – $78 – This is one of my favorite face serums – ever. It is so simple, all natural and includes one potent ingredient: pure marula oil. It’s so hydrating, softening and it even helps clear your skin of scars, blemishes and redness. It’s quite expensive at $78, but this product actually helps to sustain and support small businesses in Kenya. It’s fair trade, sustainable and ethically sourced. You can read my full review on it here.

aromatherapy associates inner strength bath oil - may lindstrom problem solver face mask - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

Aromatherapy Associates – $63 – Inner Strength Bath and Shower Oil – A more recent favorite, this Bath and Shower Oil from AA is something special. It doesn’t have the same relaxing qualities as Roques Oneil, but it does provide an incredibly soothing bath that I think is perfect for hard days. It’s appropriately named Inner Strength and I do think it helps to calm and relax, but more than that, I feel like it actually makes me feel more determined and positive in the face of hard challenges. You can see the review on this – here.

suti cleanse organic balm - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

Suti Cleanse Organic Balm – $49 – This Suti Cleanse Balm is incredible as a cleanser. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin, but will help clear your blemishes and solve dry skin issues. It’s softening and it comes with a muslin cloth so you can gently exfoliate and never have to use a face scrub or chemical exfoliant ever again, if you don’t want to. This product is expensive, but it’s truly all-in-one as it cleanses, softens, hydrates, and even exfoliates skin. You can see my full review on it here.

antonia burrell natural glow cleansing oil - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

Antonia Burrell Natural Glow Cleansing Oil – $102 – This is another face cleanser, but unlike Suti, it’s an oil instead of a balm. Nonetheless, it’s incredible at clearing skin of blemishes, redness, scars, and evens out tone. For a cleanser, it has the most incredible results for those suffering from frequent acne breakouts and redness. I couldn’t believe how clear it made my skin, but it’s that good. I’d pay $102 for it any day. They now have various sizes available – 50mL, 100mL, & 200mL bottles.  You can see my full review on it here.

antonia burrell cream supreme - 10 Luxury Beauty Products That Are Worth Every Penny

Antonia Burrell Cream Supreme – $115 – This face cream is not  your average face cream! It helps clear blemishes like no moisturizer I’ve ever seen before and it does it so well that it even helps clear blackheads and scarring. It smells like cinnnamon and nutmeg and is very softening to the skin. It uses all natural and organic ingredients, including a certified organic anti-acne complex and even has ingredients that boost your sun protection and help prevent hydration loss. You can see my full review on it here.

Argentum Apothecary La Potion Infinie - 10 luxury beauty products that are worth every penny

Argentum Apothecary La Potion Infinie – $225 – This is another amazing face cream. It’s very similar to the Cream Supreme, but it’s more geared toward helping those dealing with aging and discoloration than acne. That said, the patent-pending formula includes silver hydrosol and DNA HP, both of which are great for healing any kind of skin issue. Silver is brilliant for fighting acne-causing bacteria and DNA HP helps with cell turnover. This is also one of those face creams that feels both incredibly hydrating and balancing at the same time. It absorbs into the skin so quickly that your skin will almost feel matte after applying, but not dry. It’s seriously brilliant and worth the price for sure! You can see my full review on this here.

    As I have grown older, I have learned that sometimes it’s totally worth shelling over the extra cash for quality skincare products. I’m definitely pinning this list for when I need to find some quality products. 🙂

  13. August 30, 2013 at 7:56 PM

    Thanks for the great post!

    I don’t know if you’d consider this a “luxury” product, but MAC lipsticks. Yes, they are a bit pricey for some people, but I think the quality of the lipstick does make up for the price; you get what you pay for, definitely.

    As amazing these look, they are way too much for my budget LOL. But I think it’s okay to treat yourself to some luxury products once in a while. I’m very much interested about the Antonia Burrell Natural Glow Cleansing Oil. Your review looks great but I’d like to try it someday too! 😀

    1. March 4, 2014 at 4:24 PM

      it is such an amazing face oil and I love that it’s so ethically sourced and gives the women in Kenya a source of sustainable income to help their families. That makes it worth the $

    Am a BiG fan of all May’s line, I work in retail…not the largest salary around and I save for this line. It has fixed everything wrong with my 46 yr old skin…also has fixed my stress. (put some cocoon in a Little pot and I dab, smell in the amazingly calm scent) I love it so much and will never be without it.

    I also have the Leaky Marula oil, I love italso…great for healing wounds and all around 100% better than clog filling Argan oil.

    Will have to look into the others, have you ever tried the shampoo and conditioner from The Body Deli? Oh My Gawd incredible!

    1. April 29, 2014 at 2:44 PM

      yeah me too I love her stuff! Also love the Marula Oil from Leakey – best face oil around! never tried that hair care – never heard of that brand actually – will have to check it out thanks!

      hahah I know what you mean. In high school, I had no skincare routine. It’s just something that has happened over time. I guess and blogging has really made me a little obsessive. These products are amazing – truly – and I love each and every one of them. After 2 years of trying tons of beauty products, these ones stand out the most. 🙂 thanks for stopping by!

    What an awesome post! I’m never really sure which products are worth spending money on. This is truly helpful 🙂

    1. August 18, 2015 at 8:39 AM

      I know what you mean. It can be super confusing and daunting when trying to pick the good ones, esp. if they’re luxury products.

  38. April 7, 2016 at 8:00 AM

    Good to know :). The worst is paying a ton of $ for a product and finding out it sucks… Something affordable and great I’m finding is organic coconut oil for face moisture! So great!!

      SO TRUE! I hate when that happens and it’s happened to me quite a bit. These really work and work incredibly well. You won’t be disappointed ♥

  40. April 12, 2016 at 11:26 AM

    This is a great list. I’m kind of a minimalist when it comes to skin care products so I haven’t tried any of these luxury items before. But I’ll definitely look into them! Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

    1. April 14, 2016 at 11:22 AM

      Definitely give these a go – they’re all really fantastic products! Thanks for stopping by Lela ♥

  41. April 18, 2016 at 6:34 AM

    It’s hard sometimes to justify dishing out on expensive beauty products but if they do the trick they say they do, why not. Would love if you can link up to http://the-wardrobe-stylist.com/2016/04/17/diy-brazilian-hair-extensions/
