Apparently everyone and their mom in Hollywood slathers on La Mer like it cost ninety nine scents. J-Lo swears by it and I can’t help but think to myself if I looked as good as her in that dubsmash video she did I’d be bathing in La Mer because she has incredible skin and looks so much younger than 46!
Is, La Mer all hype or a hit for you?
My answer might surprise you!
La Mer Moisturizer is pure hype as far as I’m concerned. The fragrance alone turns me over and I find the formula a little too slick. It actually creates unnecessarily oiliness around my T-Zone which is saying something considering how dry my skin is. There aren’t many ingredients in La Mer that are actually worth its high cost. Nivea is a cheaper option ha..!
There exceptions to this rule though! I’ll pay $200 any day of the week for La Mer the Eye Balm Intense or La Mer The Eye Concentrate. Several years ago while staying at Atlantis in Bermuda I treated myself to both (YAY duty free!) and was blown away by how well they treated puffiness and also, how supple and soft the area under my eye looked and felt.
Since that time I’ve purchased and re-purchased both eye creams several times. Typically I want for the Nordstrom Semi-Annual Sale as they have exclusive sets and GWPs which makes me feel a lot less guilty about spending $200 on eye cream!
What about you?
Is La Mer all hype or does the collection have any hits for you?
