La Mer supports World Oceans Day with limited-edition jarBy Ria Prieto
Philippine Daily Inquirer
There are some products that I wish I could bathe myself in, and one of them is La Mer. When I use my favorite Crème de La Mer, however, I am careful about putting just the right amount on my skin, because I dread going to the store counter for a new bottle.
But now that I think of it, who can put a price on such an effective product really, especially when it gives optimum results? To have Crème de La Mer on my counter is a must. One does not have to use it everyday (I only do when my skin feels tight and needs that boost), but I firmly believe everyone should have it.
The man behind this amazing product is Dr. Max Huber, an aerospace physicist who suffered an accident in the ’60s that left his skin burnt. He harvested sea kelp and combined it with vitamins, minerals and essential oils pulsed with light and sound waves to create the perfect healing elixir. The result is Crème de La Mer.
As a beauty brand whose heritage relies almost solely on the sea, it is no surprise that Crème de La Mer is supporting World Oceans Day 2013 by developing a limited-edition 100-ml jar. Proceeds from the sale will go to the Blue Marine Foundation.
World Oceans Day is a day to recognize the importance of the sea as one of the world’s most vital ecosystems, with efforts to preserve its delicate wildlife. It takes place on June 8th this year.
For Crème de la Mer, this is a tribute not only to their heritage but to Huber, who recognized the value of the living ocean. I am due a tub soon, and I am more than happy to wait for June to get my own to help support this cause.
No surgery required
I recently received four exciting products from new brand NewPeptin Cosmeceuticals: Eye Expert EyeLash Enhancer, Eye Expert EyeLid Lifting, Double Chin & Neck Cream, and Lip Expert Lip Volume Treatment. As someone who hates needles, I love how these products address problems brought about by aging without requiring surgical procedure. Online reviews are good, and it seems like most customers were very happy, especially with the Eyelash Enhancer.
I was born with short and thin eyelashes. There was a time when I tried getting extensions, but they never truly satisfied me. They sting my eyes, I can’t move around when I sleep, I wake up with the falsies pointing in different directions, and I even end up pulling them out one by one because some have already fallen off. It’s just a disaster! I am always in the hunt for good mascara. My personal favorite is Emporio Armani, but, sadly, it is not available here.
Luckily, my friend gave me Benefit’s BADgal waterproof mascara, and I am hooked! Not only does it make my lashes look thicker but it also gives the illusion of length. I am a big fan of this brand. Even when they didn’t have a store here yet (they’re in Greenbelt 5 now), I used to order Benetint rose-tinted lip and cheek stain.
