Is La Mer worth it? It’s a question which has surrounded luxury skincare and La Mer – the ultimate purveyors of luxury – for some time now. So is it?
For us, the truest marker of skincare’s worth comes down to result, and ultimately that salon-finish and feel. Walking out of a facial incites the most amazing feeling. You have a spring not only in your step, but your skin, too – as you leave with the smoothest, springiest, most supple skin of your life.
But, can you truly recreate the magic of a salon appointment at-home? With a few well-curated products you can. But, it comes down to quality over quantity, and honing your at-home skin regime is imperative in your quest for steadfast skin. Celebrity facialist, Melanie Grant, concurs, “For me, it’s never about having an elaborate skin regime, it’s about using a handful of really good, efficacious products and applying them correctly.”
So for brilliant skin at-home, what should you arm yourself with? La Mer, the at-home answer for salon-worthy skin.
Like investment pieces for your complexion; here, three non-negotiables for the best skin of your life (salon not included).
3 steps for salon skin at home
a combative cleanser
Ask any skin therapist, and cleansing is one of the all-time beauty rules when it comes to skincare. But, cleansing has come a long way, and now you can even wash away the day’s dead skin cells sans water. La Mer’s marine-charged Cleansing Micellar water combines the clever technology of micellar with its magic Miracle Broth formulation, to simultaneously sweep makeup, impurities and pollutants away whilst nourishing and hydrating the skin at the same time. Genius? Of course, it’s La Mer.
