PSA: La Mer Moisturizer Is On Sale (and This Rarely Happens)
Whether or not you keep up to date on the latest beauty innovations, you’ve likely heard of La Mer. It’s the crème de la crème of all skincare brands and its ultra-pricey hero product, Crème de La Mer, is proof. The luxe moisturizer has an A-list celeb following that counts Beyoncé, Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian West and Chrissy Teigen as avid fans (all of whom we’re guessing can afford to slather it on freely without rationing a tiny jar like the rest of us).
What makes it so great, you ask? It’s formulated from a propriety blend of active ingredients from the sea (P.S. “mer” means sea in French) to improve firmness and fade the look of lines, wrinkles and pores so your skin looks plump and youthful. But you can’t just apply it fresh out of the container—it should be warmed for a few seconds between your fingers until it becomes translucent, then pressed gently into the skin like you normally would a serum or oil.
Fortunately, La Mer is part of Sephora's Spring Savings Event where you can score the beloved product for up to 20 percent off using code 'OMGSPRING' from now until April 19. Below, we’ve rounded up two must-try products on steep discount.
1. Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream
The one that started it all. This moisturizer is the OG A-list favorite and although even the sale price seems steep, the 8.5 ounces will last you practically forever.
2. La Mer The Body Creme
La Mer is the kind of treat we give our skin when it really needs a boost of extra moisture. Yes, it’s pricey, but there’s something about the luxury of it that makes our skin feel glowier. It’s made with La Mer’s Blue Algae Lift Ferment, which helps promote an overall firmer look and feel, while rescuing dry skin with the type of long-lasting hydration you’d only get from a fancy seaweed wrap.
3. La Mer The Concentrate Serum
Maybe you’ve had a peel or a deep-cleaning facial. For post-op soothing, apply La Mer’s The Concentrate; its kelp formula is specially blended to reduce redness.
4. La Mer The Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid
This lightweight lotion protects your skin from daily sun exposure without any harmful ingredients like sulfates or parabens.
5. La Mer The Lip Balm
Does one need a $70 lip balm? Well, no. Is it worthy of the price tag? Absolutely yes, if you never want to see a dry flake again.
6. La Mer The Eye Balm Intense
Packed with the proprietary Miracle Broth, which features a blend of sea kelp, vitamins and minerals, citrus oil, eucalyptus, sunflower, wheat ferm and alfalfa that are fermented together, it’s meant to quell inflammation, moisturize skin and is packed with antioxidants.
