La Mer: The Regenerating Serum

lamer_regenerating.jpgI try not to get into all the hype over big brands but when it comes to La Mer serums, I am a total devotee. It first started when I had a minor burn on my face from a curling iron 5 years ago (I know, my quest for beauty often scars me, how’s that for irony?!) and a La Mer specialist suggested I use its face serum on the wound. I used the sample they gave me and saw a drastic improvement within a week, needless to say– I ran back to the counter and bought the entire bottle.  After two months of use, the burn completely healed WITHOUT scarring!

Though my face is not burned or injured in any way right now, I have other issues– wrinkles from travel and stress!   Which is why I was very excited to receive a sample of La Mer’s latest endeavor in the fight against age– The Regenerating Serum. I used it during my 23 days whirlwind trip of fashion weeks around the globe and it kept me looking fresh no matter how little sleep I got!

But lack of sleep was the least of my worries, second hand smoke was the most worrisome for me in Milan and Madrid where almost everyone smokes– even indoors at restaurants in Madrid!  At times I felt like I smoked 2 packs a day without ever touching a cigarette but my skin was just fine despite all the stress I put it through as I used the Regenerating Serum diligently each day. 

It took Four years and hundreds of hours of lab work to create this ultra-luxe elixir but only 3 weeks for me to see real results.  But don’t just take my word for it– check it out for yourself at a La Mer counter or purchase on their website here. 

Price: 1 oz $250

  1. I started to notice a few trouble areas around my eyes, forehead, and frown lines so I searched for an anti-aging product to use and settled on the Vitamin Enhanced Face Firming Serum from Made From Earth skin company. I am truly amazed!

    In two weeks it took care of everything, seriously. I am only 30 so the areas were very minor but it is still amazing. Even better, I have had a pretty nasty spider bite scar on my neck for the past few years that always drives me crazy because it is very noticeable (very red and large, it looks like a giant pimple at all times), it has shrunk and is not red anymore at all. I could not be happier about this, I have tried so many serums to try to make the scar less noticeable. All in all, I love the Vitamin Enhanced Face Firming Serum!
