La Mer The Treatment Lotion

La Mer The Treatment Lotion
Luxury Friday

I have decided to try a new thing, every Friday (at least for September) I am going to post on something Luxurious. Now it could be makeup, skincare, or fashion. Now I know everything is relative so what may be Luxurious to me, may not be to you and vise versa, but I still hope you enjoy it.

My first luxury post is on the Brand New Product form La Mer called the Treatment Lotion! I am not sure if they even have it in the stores yet. I only got this two days ago! I normally would not Blog on something that quickly without giving it some time to really review it, especially when we are talking about something in this price range. It was $125.00, but you have to remember it is going to last me probably a year. I feel confidant posting this quickly on this product due to the results I have already experienced from using it and the fact that I have used this line for almost ten years. I feel very confidant on posting on it, after only using it for two days.

So here is the Skinny on it from La Mer:

The new Treatment Lotion is a miraculous source of vitality, the essential first step toward transformation. Like "liquid energy", this rich and silky hydrator visibly awakens the complexion and drives moisture deep into the skin to improve texture and even tone. Skin is perfectly prepared to receive the full benefit of the La Mer regimen that follows. After cleansing, sprinkle a small amount onto fingertips or saturate a cotton pad. Press into skin. Follow with your La Mer regimen.

I have been using La Mer for almost a decade and I would put my life on it that is why my skin look so good. Yes I know that it is expensive and believe me I have tried and tried and tried to find substitutes that cost less. In my quests to find brands that cost less, I probably could have bought my next 5 years of Lamer. I would say at around five years in to using it, I gave up on trying to find a substitute and just said "it is worth the money, stop wasting your money trying to find something less". So I put away a certain amount a week so I can afford it, it's like my little La Mer Fund.

Now I have only been using the Treatment Lotion for 2 days and I love it. I unscrew the bottle and sprinkle a few drops into my hands and press it into my skin. I can honestly say the second day I used it, I put it on and went and ate dinner. I than went to go bed and thought "I forgot to put on my night creme", so I got up and went to my vanity to put on my night creme. I looked into the mirror and thought "wow my skin looks good" and I had to sit there and think for a moment "what had I been doing differently". I remembered shortly and was impressed! My skin just looked so fresh, vibrant and young looking. It almost seemed as if I didn't even need to put on any night creme.

The top screws off and you just tap a few drops into your hands
and press into your skin!

After I use the Treatment Lotion, I than follow with my Creme de La Mer if it's the day. At night, I do use a different brand on certain nights because I like to use retinol. I do like the night creme that I use with the retinol in it, but I can only use it twice a week or I get too dry. La Mer does make many anti aging treatments and serums but not a night creme. Although, the Creme has many anti aging properties in it and could be considered a night creme. I honestly will say my skin looks this good because of La Mer! Whenever I go off it to test other anti aging skin care (that might be great and work well), my skin just still isn't the same. It just craves it! Not that sometimes what I am testing out isn't great, I just know nothing will ever beat Creme de La Mer. Now the serums and eye creams, that can be debating at a later date.

Final Thoughts:

I hope you enjoyed my first installment of Luxury Friday. I thought it was a good day to pick since it is pay day, not that I want to be an enabler...;) If you are new to La Mer, I would Highly suggest starting off with the Creme de La Mer Cream first. It is by far my most favorite of the brand and the favorite of many many women around the world. I have to say the only thing that bothers me about Creme de La Mer is that they keep upping the price of the Cream. I have been buying it for almost a decade so I would know. Now if they were redoing the formula (which I don't want them too, it's perfect) I would understand. They up the price and give no reason and I would like one! If the keep it up, I might be forced to find a new creme....:( I will keep you posted with my thoughts on this new Treatment Lotion, but I have a feeling they will be good. I will leave you with a little story of behind the brand.
