Remember the movie Death Becomes Her starring Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep? Streep plays an aging Hollywood star who becomes obsessed with youth and beauty and in an effort to stay young forever she takes a potion that makes her ageless. Hawn takes the potion as well and the two ladies end up looking like walking corpses for all of eternity. It’s a great film, one of my favorites. It’s also a timeless film since every woman on Earth is constantly looking for a way to preserve their own youth. Unfortunately for us regular gals, we have to settle with drugstore lotions and potions while female celebrities have the funds to spend thousands dollars on over-the-top treatments. These are a few of the most expensive beauty treatments that celebrities love:
Evian Bath: $5,000

If you’re ever in Miami, stop by the Hotel Victor for the “Evian Experience”. Tennis superstar Serena Williams loves receiving this treatment after a round of tennis. For $5,000, the hotel will fill up a 350-gallon, infinity edge tub with over 1,000 liters of Evian water. They’ll throw in some rose petals, a bottle of champagne, and a couple of spa treatments as well. Maybe you can request to keep the expensive water after you’re done?
Ruby and Diamond facial: $7,000

“That 70′s Show” star Mila Kunis looks like she hasn’t aged in years. And now we know her secret: $7,000 facials. This treatment, created by Scott-Vincent Borb, uses precious stones to exfoliate the skin. He crushes up the stones and turns them into a paste to detoxify and brighten the skin. Apparently you also get to suck on an ice cube to reduce swelling during the treatment, but it costs extra.
Caviar Skin Creme: $300

Superstar Angelina Jolie swears that there’s nothing better for your skin than rubbing it with the eggs of a Baerii sturgeon. She uses a cream infused with the fish eggs to ward off signs of aging, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. The cream has a high protein and oil content that supposedly does wonders for the face. I prefer my caviar on blinis. Not my cheeks.
Sheep placenta facial: $500

When Victoria Beckham gets a facial it’s not your typical mud mask, extraction facial. No, the singer/designer forks over $500 to have Beverly Hills dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer smear sheep placenta all over her face. The placenta is flown in from New Zealand, packed with ice, and kept fresh until it’s applied to the face. Apparently the placenta stem cells help to provide free radical damage to the skin. That’s fine and all, but I wonder what Beckham’s face smells like after she’s done wiping sheep blood all over it.
