The Splurge is our recurring column dedicated to expensive beauty products that are actually worth it. This week, why we're rebuying SkinCeuticals' Metacell Renewal B3, despite the $100 price tag.
There's nothing I love more than taking care of my skin. But let's be honest: When I'm already exhausted, trying to complete a 10-step routine before bed is a pretty daunting task.
Sometimes I just couldn't even deal with it. And that meant I'd neglect my face every once in a while and would have to be extra diligent when it came to caring for my deeply parched skin the next morning. But once I got my hands on SkinCeuticals' Metacell Renewal B3, that all became a thing of the past.
This multi-purpose moisturizer works by boasting a formula with three knock-out ingredients: niacinamide (aka vitamin b3), peptides, and glycerin. Niacinamide works to improve discoloration, while peptides help to smooth out fine lines and increase firmness, and glycerin hydrates the skin — knocking four steps out of my nighttime routine.
The only caveat with this product is the $100 price tag, but I can assure you it's worth the investment. This moisturizer completely eliminates the need to buy a number of other serums or creams that combat the issues listed above, which in turn will also save you a ton of bathroom space.

Another plus? At 50 ml, this product is also TSA-friendly. So to make your on-the-go skincare routine a breeze, feel free to take it along with you in your carry-on luggage the next time you travel. You can thank me later. For now, take advantage of those extra few minutes of beauty sleep.
