The Ultimate Indulgence

I just had a facial from La Mer today at Bergdorf Goodman. Talk about decadent! It was amazing! And my facialist Michelle couldn't have been nicer. She told me about how she left a corporate recruiting job to go back to school full time to become an aesthetician and how much she loves her job now. I always say it but I love hearing about people who have found their true calling and love going to work everyday. If you live in the New York tri-state area, you should call them up and put your name on the list for the next event. I also highly recommend the new Eye Concentrate. It's a miracle cream in a jar. Now if I could just afford to slather my entire body in La Mer everyday I'd be in heaven!

I envy Erin Aerin Lauder, she uses La Mer on her foot.

At $160 a jar - I can tell you and I are not in the same income bracket!

Karina, Using La Mer on your feel is definitely an ultimate indulgence! Wow!

Susan, I consider it an investment for my skin. Also, you only use a tiny little bit of all their products so they last a long time. Believe me, I've tried every cream and potion out there at every price and I love La Mer. Although, Olay does make some great products as well!

Watch out for that new eye concentrate if you have sensitive skin--I love the Creme de la mer and the old eye cream but the new eye concentrate made my eyelids break out in a terrible eczema rash which was miserable itchy red and very unsightly!!

I used to think La Mer was a rip off, but a jar lasts me 5 or 6 months, so it's more reasonable when I think about it that way. It's really pretty amazing.

If that's still a ridiculous amount to spend, a great alternative is ROC:

In fact, I think it might be better... it just doesn't smell as nice.

Anonymous, you would never buy a car without test driving it first and I treat skincare the same way. I always try a sample first before buying any product. I happen to enjoy La Mer products and think they make my skin look great but understand they may not be for everyone.

Decorno, I have tried ROC before but was never impressed. I may have to try it again if you are singing their praises.
