Two people stole some very high-end facial cream from Duane Reade at 1889 Broadway (63rd street) on April 24, according to police.
The creams were from brands like Strivectin and Foreo, according to NYPD. Those brands sell extremely expensive stuff — one 4.5 ounce tube of Strivectin SD Advanced Intensive Cincentrate costs $139, for instance.

The thefts come as the local precinct has been urging Duane Reade’s corporate parent Walgreens to beef up security at Upper West Side stores. Since our initial story about the issue, other media outlets have begun covering the issue. Walgreens told NBC that it is beginning to work more closely with the police now.
“We recently began providing voluntary weekly updates to the NYPD about where we are concentrating our uniformed or plainclothed security officers and welcome input from police on how we can best deploy resources.”
