Face cream made from meteorites—would you try it?
A new face cream is out of this world—literally.
A new year is almost upon us ladies, so what better time to experiment with a face cream that claims to take years off your mug using ancient ingredients from space?
Sure, we’ve heard about caviar face cream and other bizarre concoctions, but this one caught us off guard—face cream made from meteorites.

According to the Daily Mail, the cream, called Celestial Secret, is an anti-aging range that contains powdered meteorite and is picked up by nomadic tribes in the Sahara desert before being sent to Spain for powdering and processing.
The 4.5 billion year-old dust is then mixed with extracts from semi-precious stones including haematite, rodochrosite, olivine and smithsonite, as well as botanicals such as beech bud extract to create an overall anti-aging effect when applied to skin.
“The meteorite extract is very hydrating and has proven anti-aging results, proven by outside independent test companies who scientifically test active ingredients,” said Tracey Smith, director of Essential Beauty Supplies. “Everyone who tries it say that they feel a benefit straight away which improves every day and after only four days you start to see a difference, which just gets better and better. We have proven photographic results using a much lower percentage of meteorite extract so we know it really works.”
We’re all for trying anything that gives us a youthful glow, but at $390, we’ll be applying it sparingly, to say the least.

Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
