Highway robbery: Luxtural

There isn't much to say about new range Luxtural other than... sounds too good to be true to me. $150 for 1.35 ounces for something called Skin Premonition that's supposed to raise the hydration levels of your skin by 120%? On the website, there's no ingredient list, poor usage notes... how the hell do I know I'm not just getting the regular mix of Water, Cetyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Steareath-100 and Dimethicone (Check the back of your moisturiser. Bet it has these in it.)? You don't, which means that's probably what it is... which means you're probably better off stumping up a fiver for a bottle of Olay. Even worse is the Sophisticated Veil (Really? Do you really think that's a good name for a beauty product?) at $186 for 1.2 ounces.

The wording on the website is dire and the lack of information when soliciting such a mark up is decidedly shady. Oh, and there is no About Us section [Editor's note: there seems to have been one added since this post was written] nor can you contact anyone (online form is the only option). Not impressed. The only redeeming feature is the bottle design (both Vaishaly and Sarah Chapman use it).
