Dream Cream

La Mer Moisturizers

La Mer does it again! La Mer's original Crème de la Mer was revolutionary when it first launched. Max Huber was an astrophysicist who burned himself in his lab. He worked tirelessly to create a cream that healed his skin - and since he could heal burned skin, he could work miracles with unburned skin! Once I introduced my mom to the original La Mer cream, she was completely hooked. She said her skin was never as supple and plump as when she used this cream. In fact she would call me in a panic when she would run out!

Fast forward to today, there are now many ways to get your La Mer fix! The original Crème de la Mer cream, packed with a fermented seaweed miracle concoction called Miracle Broth, is super thick and perfect for winter time or sunburned skin - you have to warm it up in your fingertips first and then slather it on. A couple of years ago, the genius team came up with the La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream - a little lighter cream, but still packed with goodies.  Is is super easy to apply and great for all around hydration, day or night.


And now, they created the Moisturizing Soft Lotion.  It is the perfect drink of water for the skin! I love it in the morning pre-primer and pre-makeup if I am feeling dry. And if your skin is fairly normal and you want hydration but don't need a cream, this is perfect for you! You also get a little more of an illuminating effect from this one. Now three dream creams to choose from!!!!

Midnight Toes Year Round

Deborah Lippmann Fall Collection
Left to Right: Wild Thing, After Midnight, Love Hangover, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Those of you who know me know I love dark polish on my toes – year round! I am partial to either black, deep grey, or deep navy. Deborah Lippmann happened to send in her new Fall Collection and I fell in love immediately with the After Midnight, a deep deep purple that looks almost black, but catches the sunlight perfectly showcasing the perfect purple. I popped it into my purse so I am never without it while I am traveling. This will be my go-to for the next six months - no question!

P.S. – I also love her new Wild Thing – a deep, deep emerald, which is also a go-to color for fall.    This one has a hint of blue undertones. For a green, green emerald, Smith & Cult's Darjeeling Darling is perfect (coming soon to Bluemercury.com!)!
