Bellissima! Kenneth Mark Antioxidant Hydrating Cream

If "summer" is a verb for you—as in, "I summer in the Hamptons," you might already know about Dr. Kenneth Mark. The dermatologist works with some of New York's and Aspen's fanciest faces, focusing on cosmetic treatments such as Botox and chemical peels. I'm not interested in those things, but one of his creations definitely caught my eye.

Kenneth Mark Antioxidant Hydrating Cream ($95) is a pricey cream, for sure. But here's what's cool about it: it contains astaxanthin, which is up to 10 times more potent than other antioxidants. Since antioxidants fight free radicals, which cause aging, this cream is a power punch of good-skin stuff. By the way, its rarity helps explain the product's high price; synthetic astaxanthin fetches $2000 a kilogram on the market, while the natural stuff (which is harvested from sea organisms) goes for more than $7000 a kilogram.

I've sampled this cream, and although it's a lightweight cream, it's surprisingly hydrating. Plus, it's used in the Ritz-Carlton spa in Aspen, which makes me feel kinda fancy myself.

Professorluv, why isn't it worth the money? Just wondering because I don't want to waste money on it, if it really doesn't work.

I can't wait for the next article on this, Bella. I'm at a point where I think I should start preventative measures!

Yep, good for prevention. I've recently fallen in love with a night cream that I'm going to tell y'all about next week. Oh, and a drugstore cleanser that is remarkably good. So much to write about!

Oh never mind, its for fine lines and wrinkles :) ...I could definitely try this as a preventive cream.

I wouldn't mind trying it...Bella, care to give us a review if it helped in anyway after using for a couple of weeks, that is if you do use it for that long! Also, what is it supposed to take care of - fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles or all?

I'm afraid nothing is $125 worth of fancy in the way of face cream!! That's just not going to happen.
