This morning, we took a shower using a soap made from gold and diamonds that just happens to cost nearly $3,000. Oh well. It's melting down, but who cares! We'll just order more. Anyway, we continued our morning routine by brushing our teeth using a toothpaste made by Theodent. It costs nearly $200, so we kept using more on our teeth just because we can. We even used it on Fido to get rid of it and order more.
Then we shaved. We used to shave using Barbasol, but it costs around $8, so of course, we traded up and used a Jack Black shave lather that only costs around fifty bucks. We lathered up, and then shaved using our Art of Shaving razor, which, get this, sells for the bargain price of $225. So we threw it away because we don't like to waste. And then we wrapped up our regiment by putting on Clive Christian’s Imperial Majesty Perfume for Men, which, if you really want to know, is only $435.000, which we're told is the price of a house.
But while we're wealthy, life is hard. Sometimes we don't know when to trade up on our grooming products. There's so much out there for men, and we have to browse men's blogs to keep up. What if we missed out on a Vitamin A serum worth only $500? Then where will we be? So here's the deal. We gathered up 25 of the most expensive grooming products for men to show you the hard life we have.
25 Orchidée Impériale Black Cream - $1,115 for 1.6 oz

24 La Prairie Cellular Platinum Rare Cream- $1,200 for 1.7 oz
Made for both men and women, La Prairie Rare consists of one of the world's most precious and rarest metal on earth, platinum. Platinum works to bond with your skin and is now an infamous anti-aging cream that recharges the skin, protects the skin's DNA and replenishes moisture as if you've drunk 8 cups of water. The platinum also protects the skin from harmful chemicals and climates and lends you a more youthful appearance if you wear it every day.

21 Verso Dark Spot Fix - $150 for .05 oz
The Verso Dark Spot Fix contains the highest concentration of Retinol 8 of all Verso products. The Vitamin A ingredient is more corrective than standard Retinol and half as irritative.

20 ReVive Intensite Line Erasing Serum (Advanced Wrinkle Corrector) - $600 for 1 oz
This wrinkle corrector serum smooths and softens your face while also working to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The result is skin that appears visibly firm and tight, and the serum also prevents new damage by protecting your face from the environment, like urban pollution, humidity, smoke, etc. But the best thing about this serum is that you don't have to wait like six months before showing any signs of rejuvenation. The ReVive works instantly and overtime.
19 ReVive Intensité Volumizing Serum - $600 for 1 oz
Serum is a skincare product that you put on before moisturizing. It can penetrate deeply into the skin but it's not a moisturizer because face creams are richer and create a "shield" on the top of the skin to keep the serum intact. This serum works to increase facial volume and plump up pockets on your skin, like furrow lines. It increases skin cell renewal in order to make skin feel firmer and brighter. A 1. fl. oz. costs $600.
18 ReVive Intensite Crème Lustre Night - $385 for 1.7 oz
For a moisturizer to use in the day, we suggest ReVive's Intensite Creme Lustre Day. But those who care about rejuvenating their skin at night, you should use a cream while asleep. This moisturizer brightens and hydrates the skin overnight for a healthy-looking visage. Developed for men who have dry to very dry skin, Creme Luster makes their skin feel firmer and supple from a loss of elasticity. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines, and makes skin more firm and tight.
17 Youth Eye Complex by Innovative Skincare - $78 for .5 oz
Eye cream is always expensive. In fact, other beauty products for the face are always expensive if they target one area. If you have crows feet around the eyes or dark circles, you really should invest in an eye cream. It is powerful because it uses pharmaceutical-grade Centella Asiatica extract. Why does it cost so much? Well, the Centella that RE uses is 1,000 times more effective than the cosmetic-grade ones, according to the RE website. The eye cream is $78 per ounce.
16 Jack Black Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather - $50 for 3 oz
The Jack Black lathers your skin for a smooth shave. It allows for closer shaves, better razor glide, and protection from razor burn, nicks, and cuts. The cream is thick to lift whiskers from the skin and which allows the razor to better cut each whisker. It moisturizes your face and leaves skin hydrated and smooth to the touch. At around $50 for 3 oz, this shave lather is designed for sensitive skin and worth the price for a close cut.
15 Tom Ford Intensive Infusion Ultra Rich Moisturizer - $235 for 1.7 oz
It's hard finding the right moisturizer. Basically, you want only one, and you want it to do everything. The Intensive Infusion does just that. Nutrients allow for a smooth and young visage, and the cream works to restore the luster and the vitality of your skin. It has a complex that stimulates the natural cell-repair mechanism, which allows the skin to become resistant. Like coffee, it awakens your face, making it feel more renewed. A 1.7 oz jar costs $235.
14 Dr. Barbara Sturm Super Anti-Aging Serum - $350 for 1.0 oz

11 La Mer Crème de la Mer - $2,095 for 16.5 oz

Once again, the cream is enriched by the highly potent Miracle Broth, which has ingredients like sea kelp, vitamins, and minerals. The nutrient-rich broth was created through a meticulous 3 to 4-month fermentation process.
