I've been wondering for awhile if I should buy some La Mer face cream. I could probably swing the $150 for the 1 ounce size (once, at least). Do I want it? Am I missing something? I've read that Mick Jagger uses it faithfully.
I'm just not sure I would spend that much. Then the Nordstrom catalog comes and I see that $150 is nothing.
La Prairie Cellular Power Serum is $475 for the 1.7 oz size and, get this, due to high demand you're only allowed to buy up to 6 'units' in a 30 day period. What's going on here? I'm worried now.
I bought this one after seeing on Pinterest that Dr. Oz says it's the only one you really need. It was about $5. Dr. Oz, would you steer us wrong? I did use a prescription retinol cream for about a year once but I found that after a year, I was a year older so I didn't really bother with it anymore.
Seriously though, what I am interested in is skin that doesn't look pasty and dry. My extensive people-watching at airports has led me to conclude that pasty skin is a very ageing look. Luminous is what I'm interested in and I'm willing to pay for it - to a point. That point is not $475. For that price you'd need to actually BECOME younger and I sure don't want that.
I remember years ago Anita Roddick, the founder of the Body Shop, said something to the effect that it doesn't really matter what you put on your face, it's all just moisturizer. I think she got in big trouble for saying such a thing but I sort of thought it might be true. Now, I'm not so sure.
I guess I'll order this book from Amazon and see what Paula says. I always used to like reading her books until she came out with her own skin care line which made me not quite trust her opinions anymore. Hopefully, she has some truthful information. I'm in a panic! I'll let you know...
