Loving my La Mer lotion

I feel very soft and young and luscious lately because of a gift Ina Casas of La Mer gave me a few months ago--a big tube of La Mer Body Creme. She told me it was a "Congratulations on your pregnancy!" gift but I haven't been using it because, well, I wanted to try out Palmer's Cocoa Butter first.

Now I use them both--Palmer's on the ever expanding parts of me and La Mer everywhere else. And my skin is so soft! I feel so gorgeous and delectable. And it's also so hydrating, I don't need to use it every day. So even if it's pricey, I don't feel like my money is draining away because I hardly use it. In other words, it lasts longer.

Oh, wait. It was a gift! Thank heavens! Or rather, thanks, Ina! But I'll still use it sparingly. I also have the Treatment Creme Foundation and the Powder, both of which are so marvelous on my skin that even with my pregnancy-caused acne and scars, I look flawless after application. Again, both were gifts.

Sigh. Now I have to really make more money. I'm getting spoiled with all these luxe gifts. When they run out, I don't think I can shell out thousands upon thousands for just lotion and makeup! Then again, I like to think that my life is getting better so maybe it's okay to be spoiled a bit!

  1. Oh, I'm jealous. I hear it's wonderful! Can I be Ina's friend too??

  2. lucky you for receiving luxe gifts....i always dread the day when my moisturizer is coming to its final squeeze.

  3. Haha, yes, I do enjoy the perks of my job but yes, I also use the products sparingly because they're so precious!
