Gift Wrapping 2011

Every year Crème de la Mer introduces new gift wrapping for Christmas, like we've seen for this year's Christmas Collections.

This year's new design reflects the rounded Crème de la Mer logo we've become familiar with on the Crème, Gel, Eye Balm, and Eye Concentrate lids, presented on top of reflective emerald green high-quality paper, boxes or tubes with sparkles that could signify either christmas fairy lights or snow.

This design is also visible on the new tissue paper, which previously had the logo tiled in rows across the paper.

The La Mer ribbon has also changed from light green with the text on the edges to white with the logo in silver, bigger and in the center.

It's fun to know that La Mer has new gift wrapping every year, and builds to the excitement every Christmas to see which Crème de la Mer products you'll be getting.

Kindly check with your La Mer Expert for availability in your area.

For Your Eyes Only (segment 2 of 2)

In segment 1 of “For Your Eyes Only” we looked at which of the Crème de la Mer eye crèmes, The Eye Balm Intense, or The Eye Concentrate best suits your skin’s needs. Now we’re looking into the application of the crèmes to the vulnerable eye area.

Accompanied by the specially-engineered genuine silver-tipped applicator, which helps to cool the skin, immediately stimulating micro-circulation, leaving your eyes looking more vibrant and conditioned.

NOTE: If you are allergic to silver, refrain from using the applicator, use your fingertips instead.

To start, dip the applicator into the crème, about ⅔ for The Eye Balm Intense, and ½ for The Eye Concentrate, or as recommended, about a pea-sized amount. What I did at first was use way too much (wanting quicker results), and it ended up making my eyes look puffy – stick to the small amount – your skin can only absorb so much Crème de la Mer at a time.

Begin at the temple, sweep underneath the eye towards the nose, then circle the eye area above the brow, returning to the temple. Repeat 3 times, and then using your ring finger, gently pat the area around your eyes. The reason we use the ring finger is because it uses the least amount of pressure of all the fingers, thereby reducing long-term damage to the skin.

TIP: If you want to distribute the crème more evenly, follow the procedure above using small circular motions as you round the eye area.

TIP: Avoid applying the crème too close to the eye, to prevent it from getting into your eyes.

Petite Concentrate Launches October 1

The global release of the new travel-sized Crème de la Mer The Concentrate is October 1, 2011.

The size of the new Concentrate is 1oz. (30ml), and joins the 1.7oz. (50ml) size. The design of the petit-sized Concentrate will look exactly the same as the 1.7oz., and also incorporates the dropper.

The major advantage of the smaller version will be to take with you on your travels, as pricing for the 1.7oz is around $375* (£295*) and the 1oz. $280* (£220*).

For Your Eyes Only (segment 1 of 2)

Which of the Crème de la Mer eye-crèmes is best suited for your vulnerable eye area’s needs? The Eye Balm Intense or The Eye Concentrate? Let’s take a look at the differences between the two – in this our first segment, “For Your Eyes Only”, segment 2 focuses on application methods and targeting areas of concern.

Originally named The Eye Balm, the light guacamole-green crème gets presented in a white glass pot. After using both treatments for a couple of months, I find The Eye Balm Intense a lighter option, effectively improving puffiness and dark circles in the eye well, also diminishing the look of fine lines and laugh lines around the eyes, leaving the skin feeling softer, smoother and looking more luminous.

I find The Concentrate, avocado-yellow in the bottle-green glass pot, the more powerful option, especially after a late night – it quickly reduces puffiness, and visibly tightens the skin around my eye area (and is less damaging than the “model’s secret” ice cold spoons on the eyes). Formulated with Hematite, a magnetically-charged mineral, which aids in improving dark circles, unevenness, and discolorations, The Eye Concentrate also boosts the tone and firmness of your skin.

Both treatments contain a triple concentration of the original Miracle Broth, and offers thorough moisturizing, and anti-aging benefits, the Marine DePuff Ferment (derived from energy-rich deep-sea red algae and activated with a rare tourmaline) to rejuvenate tired skin and decrease puffiness, and the Lifting Ferment (a combination of marine algae, peptides, botanicals and essential minerals) that strengthens the thin area under your eyes, which helps to boost your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, improving clearness and brightness.

If you believe that prevention is better than cure, my recommendation is The Eye Balm Intense, if you need a little bit of a “boost” for your eye-area – opt for The Eye Concentrate.
