Brightening vs. Whitening

The Whitening Essence Intense
3-6 Update - Blanc de la Mer - The Brightening Collection

What is the difference between the new "Brightening" range versus the Asian "Whitening" Range - Blanc de la Mer?

'Blanc de la Mer' in French translates to 'White of the Sea", and if one looks at the new bottle for The Brightening Essence Intense the French translation of "l'essence éclaircissante intense" is "intense lightening essence". Allow me to clarify the confusion...

I was told "The new Brightening range was designed for Asian skin, it is preferred to call it 'Brightening' here".

Thus we (in the West) are now privy to the highly successful Blanc de la Mer range (which was previously discontinued 'here'), although we will only have 3 of the products. What's more is that the range has received an exciting facelift!

The Range
The three products we are going to indulge in are:

The Brightening Essence Intense
Helps soothe irritation, lift dullness and fade the appearance of stubborn age spots and uneven pigmentation. Skin looks firmer, more even and refined.

The Brightening Lotion Intense
Utilizes potent brightening and smoothing ferments to retexturize skin and help maximize and accelerate the benefits of the Blanc de la Mer regimen.

The Brightening Infusion Intense
Delivers extreme brightening, targets hyper-pigmentation and boosts the benefits of The Brightening Essence Intense.

NEW: The Reparative Body Lotion

NEW: The Reparative Body Lotion.
UPDATE below and in comments.

As I hinted on December 1, Crème de la Mer is launching a BRAND NEW product called The Reparative Body Lotion.

Partly replacing the discontinued The Body Serum and the The Body Cream, The Reparative Body Lotion will start shipping from the La Mer site late February, and will be in most stores afterwards, The Reparative Body Lotion is currently only available by invitation.
Description from La Mer;

"A time eraser that delivers anti-aging power of a serum to the body."

Rich in Miracle Broth, sea-born ferments and potent anti-oxidants, it replenishes moisture, helps even skin tone and helps protect against future damage. Skin is visibly firmer, clarified and comforted.

The Miracle Broth heart of La Mer's profound powers of transformation, soothes irritation, restores radiance and hydrates deeply. The Reparative Ferments clarifying algae helps brighten skin and even tone while marine peptides help repair lines and wrinkles. Rock Samphire, a seashore plant, increases cell turnover for exceptional smoothness. The nourishing Marine Pro-Biotic Ferment derived from hardy microorganisms found in hydrothermal vents of undersea volcanoes, helps prevent dehydration and strengthens the skin's moisture barrier.

My Valentine Ménage à Trois

For Valentine's Day on February 14, I'm  suggesting a Ménage à Trois with Crème de la Mer - The Lip Balm (for softer lips), The Eye Balm Intense (for that bashfully youthful eyelash batting), and The Body Refiner (to sparkle - because you're literally covered in diamond dust)!

May your valentine spoil you with My La Mer Valentine Ménage à Trois!

 Sparkle! Kiss! Love!
