I've been writing about Augustinus Bader's The Rich Cream for over two years now, but I'll be honest, I was hesitant to make the splurge at first. A full-size, 50-milliliter bottle regularly costs $290, which is no small price to pay for a face moisturizer. But now that I've experienced the formula's skin-saving powers like many PureWow editors have, I must say: It's totally worth it. And while a little bit of the luxurious cream does go a long way, there's nothing worse than going for a pump and realizing that my bottle is finito. Feel my pain? Well, the brand has got a solution. Augustinus Bader just launched a new *100-milliliter bottle* of the iconic cream on Nov. 16, which means our skin practically never has to go without. Yes, the supersized bottle costs a pretty penny—$520, to be exact— but when you compare it to the price of two 50-milliliter bottles ($580), it's actually more cost-efficient in the long run. Unsurprisingly, it's on every PureWow editor's wish list this Christmas, including mine, but here's why it should be on yours, too.

First off, it would be remiss not to mention that Rich Cream was developed by Professor Augustinus Bader (one of the world’s leading experts in stem cell research), who created the line's core Trigger Factor Complex (TFC8), from a mixture of amino acids, vitamins and molecules naturally found in skin, while conducting medical research. The product is supposed to help nourish and heal skin above all, but thanks to other skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which can help with the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, it can do so much more.

For instance, the rich-yet-lightweight face cream left one editor's skin "radiant, blemish-free and so much more hydrated after just a few days of use," according to her review. As for me, I'm obsessed with how it keeps my dry skin moisturized and glowy all day long. Needless to say, it's also consistently buzzed-about on TikTok, racking up more than 54 million views, which just confirms how widely beloved this stuff is.

Whether or not you're already a member of the Rich Cream cult, this epic new size is worth the price tag if: one, you don't want to risk running out every few months, or two, you or someone you know is in the market for a truly nourishing and science-backed moisturizer that meets the needs of various skin concerns. But don't just take our word for it. One reviewer shares, "I have just finished my second bottle and can genuinely say that the rich cream has transformed my peri-menopausal skin. Not only does it look good, but it feels good...The redness is calmed, and I can go without foundation again for the first time in years. I feel like I have my confidence back."

Now, if that's not enough to convince you to snag the 100-milliliter bottle as a holiday gift for yourself (or someone equally as skincare-obsessed), we're not sure what will. Perhaps the fact that 95 percent of users in a clinical trial agreed that it dramatically improved the look of wrinkles, and 97 percent said it transformed their skin tone and texture? I can keep going, but you probably just want to add it to your cart now—I certainly will be.
