This October, La Mer supports The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in their battle to beat breast cancer.
In order to aid research and increase awareness, La Mer will make a donation of $30,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in connection with the North American sales of Crème de la Mer. A special pink box has been created especially for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Look at how gorgeous this special pink box is.
Inside the formula is nothing short of special too. I know I have talked about my love for La Mer in the past, especially over on Aging Fabulous, but I am not sure if I have ever given you the background of this "miracle" cream. You see, many years ago, Dr. Max Huber, an aerospace physicist, suffered a horrific accident—a routine accident exploded in his face—covering him with burns. Dissatisfied with his scarred appearance, Huber decided to help himself. Twelve years and 6,000 experiments later, he perfected Crème de la Mer, the crème that would help give skin a dramatically smoother appearance. If it works for scars, imaging what it does for fine lines and wrinkles.
Crème de la Mer is available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and select specialty stores. Also at www.lamer.com. The prices are $130 for 1oz., $230 for 2oz., and $1390 for 16.5oz..
