I have always had a rather low maintenance to skincare: 1) Wash with whatever’s around, 2) Moisturise and follow up with a sunscreen and go … until recently. I’m 35 years old and as much as I like to subscribe to the lovely adage of “Black don’t crack” ala Oprah, I have to admit that I do a double take when I look at unfiltered unedited pictures and wonder when age crept up on me 🙂 I can count on my two hands the amount of times I’ve had a facial in 15 years. I have been procrastinating with when I’d actually get my skincare routine in order and then the lovely people from La Mer contacted me 🙂
I had always heard of the product and never quite made my way to a counter yet to investigate, but I’d recently seen a post of Chrissy Teigen on Instagram in a La Mer facemask and thought I’d give it a try. After using the products for a few weeks now, I must admit, I am hooked. The “Lifting Eye Serum” and “Renewal Oil” are my favourite products and I feel quite indulgent rubbing the renewal oil onto my expanding belly. I love the ethos of the products and the fact that the goodness is extracted from the sea – hence “La Mer”. I had the pleasure of sitting down for a one on one with Sarantis Tsimilimis – their Director of Education for La Mer in the EMEA region and enjoyed the way he brought the product to life.
So, hopefully, despite sleep deprivation, I’ll be bright-eyed and fluffy-tailed with a little help from La Mer 🙂 What’s good enough for Chrissy (one of my favourite Modern Mommies) is good enough for me 😉 #MyLaMerStory
