La Mer Goes Pink for BCA.

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 The prices are  $130 for 1oz., $230 for 2oz., and $1390 for 16.5oz..


The Ultimate in Luxury!

Synonymous with skin care miracles and ultimate luxury, the legendary Crème de la Mer has inspired a devoted following. And BCA Month has inspired them to create a special pink box.

It is coined the "Miracle Broth"  and has a devoted cult-like following. The price? 1 oz. $110 (not available in BCA packaging), 2 oz. $195, or the ultimate in luxury 16.5 oz. for $1200. 
A few years ago, I was lucky enough to have a special batch made up just for moi. Now, this was when there was only Crème de la Mer, no other special treatment products that are currently in the line.  It was a small sample, but just enough for a few weeks to try it out.  I remember it being too rich for my entire face, but I really liked it around my eye area.

Being older (and much drier - skin wise) with a few lines around my eyes, I wonder how I would feel about it now. I must admit that I am intrigued by the eye balm, and may just have to see if there are samples available.

All in all, I think that if you were ever in the market for Crème de la Mer, now is the time to purchase where a bit of the money will do some good. La Mer will donate $25,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
