La Mer – skin care

La mer1La mer 2

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ What’s good enough for Chrissy (one of my favourite Modern Mommies) is good enough for me πŸ˜‰ #MyLaMerStory

    This looks like sheer bliss!! I’m pregnant with my 1st child and I have realised how important it is to give yourself a little time and attention. Even just allowing oneself the luxury of being still, calm and getting in touch with this amazing process that is going on inside despite our crazy lives. Have always been keen to sample the La Mer range☺I recon this is as good a time as ever?
