Math Skillz: Price per ounce

By Voxy  

DSCF0129 by Krissyho.You know, I kept thinking about that “what if money were no object” question from last week. And so I thought I’d see what the most expensive kinds of things were that one could buy in the skincare department. (There were several more I would have included but the websites did not list how many ounces of product were in the container, which in all cases looked absurdly small.)


Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo: $140 for 12 oz. = $11.67 per ounce

OK, ounce for ounce this isn’t the most expensive product in this post, but it’s a SHAMPOO. One that costs ONE HUNDRED FORTY DOLLARS.

Creme de la Mer: $130 for 1 oz. You know, before I did this post, I used to think this was outrageously expensive. I see now that I should have saved my outrage.

Amore Pacific Time Response Renewal Creme: $400 for 1.7 oz. = $235.29 per ounce

Darphine Predermine Replenishing Anti-Wrinkle Serum: $325 for 10 0.1-oz ampules = $325 per ounce

Perricone MD Neuropeptide Eye Contour: $195 for 0.5 oz. = $390 per ounce

Kanebo Sensai Collection Premier The Cream: $650 for 1.4 oz. = $464.29 per ounce

Sisley Paris Sisleya Daily Line Reducer: $498 for 1 oz.

Clé de Peau Beauté La Creme: $500 for 1 oz.

Chantecaille Nano Gold Energizing Eye Cream: $260 for 0.5 oz. = $520 per ounce

La Prairie Pure Gold Platinum Radiance Concentrate: $570 for 1 oz.

La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare: $1,000 for 1.7 oz. = $588.24 per ounce

ReVive Intensite Volumizing Serum: $600 for 1 oz.

Clé de Peau Beauté Synactif Intensive Cream: $1,000 for 1 oz.


Suddenly, I don’t feel so bad about spending $40 on a moisturizer now.

    Creme de la Mer a bargain? I need a sample.
    There’s an expensive Shiseido moisturizer that’s wonderful (maybe $75 an ounce?), but I haven’t the nerve to buy it.
