I don't know what hubby asked Santa for, but I asked Santa for a new DSLR camera so I can take some nice clear pics because I'm going to start doing eyeshadow looks. Hopefully
Anyway, I wanted to talk to you about my new obsession La Mer. Yes, I said it La Mer! A few weeks back, I tried a beauty product that left my skin.... well let me just show you.
Yes with TWO huge scabs. I was in tears. I didn't know what to do. Then I started doing some research and I found out a lot of aestheticians say that after your skin has been traumatized in any way, you should put La Mer on the problem areas. Also another great beauty blogger reached out to me and told me to put La Mer on it. She had tried that same product and the same thing had happened to her face. I had always been skeptical about La Mer. Before becoming a serious blogger, I was a huge fan of Paula Begoun's book Don't Go To The Cosmetic's Counter Without Me, and she had said some pretty harsh things about La Mer. However, after blogging for a few years, although I can appreciate Paula's book, I don't agree with a lot of her opinions. Anyway, I was lucky enough to have La Mer Moisturizing Gel samples on hand. I want you to understand that I had the scabs on my face for three days before trying La Mer and nothing was working. I began applying the La Mer at night and kept applying throughout the night. The moisturizing gel is great if you have sensitive skin because it's not rich like the cream, It still feels very hydrating but it doen't irritate your skin. It's specifically made for people whose skin can't deal with the original cream because it's too moisturizing. La Mer was created by a NASA scientist Dr. Max Huber to treat burns on the face and eyes. The next day I woke up and the scab on top was GONE and the bigger one was almost gone. I couldn't believe it. I think I did a backflip or maybe a somersault! I was so happy. Here's a pic two days after.
After that I just kept applying, reapplying, and the next day the scab was completely gone, and although I still have a very slight mark on my face, that I'm applying the LaMer on, it's not even noticeable.
I am obsessed with you LaMer. Not sure what your "miracle broth" contains but I love you. The great thing about Lamer is that all you need is a dime size amount. Although I'm continuing to use it as a moisturizer all over my face, I'm still using the same sample size that I had a week ago. I love how moisturizing the gel is on my face, and it doesn't break me out. I actually asked myself recently, " How could I have been skeptical of this product?" Around six years back, I was a seat filler at the MTV Music awards and I sat next to Jennifer Lopez. At the time, she was rumored to use La Mer all over her skin. To this day, I have never seen skin as beautiful, healthy and glowing as hers. I was super excited to be sitting next to her, but the funny thing was, I was more excited to ask her what she used on her skin. (Although we were told that if we were caught talking to the celebs, we would be escorted out so I just shut up and stared at her.) The next day I did my research and found out it was La Mer.
Now that I'm using it as a moisturizer, my skin is really glowing.
I love you La Mer.
