A while ago I did a post about if I should take the plunge and buy some La Mer face cream. I decided to go ahead and buy it or I would just never know.
I ordered it from the La Mer web-site and didn't read the little pamphlet that was enclosed so I had no idea why it was so thick! I was a bit horrified at first. You can't put it on damp skin as I had always tried to do with moisturizer. You have to warm it between your fingers and press it into your skin. It takes some getting used to.
I was considering getting the 'soft' cream this time but the lady at Saks said that wasn't a good idea for this time of year. Winter = dry skin, even in Houston.
Wait, how did I end up in Saks? Why didn't I just use this $5 jar of cream that's all over Pinterest as recommended by Dr. Oz ? I had fully intended to try the St. Ives to really see if the La Mer was worth the money. I lasted exactly one day.
I started to turn into an alligator without the La Mer. I don't even go to malls but I didn't feel I was able to wait the time it would take to order it on-line.
The thing is, I don't expect to look younger or any foolishness like that. It's really just about comfort. La Mer works. It moisturizes. That's all I ask. It lasts and it works. Sold!
