Crème de la Mer Master Class

I promptly accepted the invitation from La Mer for their Master Class, as I was unable to attend the previous one. To secure the booking a small deposit is required, which can be subtracted from your purchase afterwards. They confirmed via SMS, and sent directions to the location vie email, which was at Banksia Luxury Boutique Hotel in Rosebank, Cape Town, truly an escape into another world, with trendy décor and a Colonial architecture feel.

After welcome nibbles and drinks, about 10 beautiful attendees moved into the presentation room, where we were guided through the very informative La Mer 10 reasons to believe, followed by an interactive walkthrough of the Crème de la Mer collection.

Everyone was guided as to which products would better suit the type and condition of their skin. We started with cleansing the face, choosing from the 4 options available. Then The Refining Facial, I love exfoliating with this weekly, the idea, and feel, of diamond dust on your face is simply lavish!

Afterward we toned and prepared the skin, I chose my new favorite, also now my new toner, is The Hydrating Infusion. Then of course onto the core: we were advised as to which of the Crèmes would be the best possible match for our skin. One noteworthy point was that we were recommended to warm the Crème in the palms of our hands, rubbing it vigorously, not just between the fingertips, quite effective for warming the broth!

Subsequently we either applied The Eye Concentrate, or The Eye Balm Intense. Then either The Regenerating Serum, The Lifting Face Serum, The Lifting Intensifier, or The Concentrate, followed by SPF, The Lip Balm, and a spritz of The Mist to seal the deal.
After two hours of being in Crème de la Mer heaven, we all left happy, glowing and ebullient, walking the dog (shopping bags in hand)! If you have the opportunity to attend the La Mer Master Class – grab it!
