    L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

    i use this cream, it is great! here's a tip:

    i keep this cream in my nightstand drawer so i can remember to put some on b/f i go to bed. that way the effects of the cream can work all night while you sleep, on penetrating your skin instead of coming off during the day when you both use the cream, and wash your hands a lot. hope this helps you to maximize your product use! xoxoAnya

  • La Mer Creme De La Mer

    La Mer Creme De La Mer

    I use this every day & night

    a couple of comments: this is expensive stuff but worth it. unfortunately it just got more expensive, they raised the prices on all La Mer products (about $25.00, so if the cream was $225 it's now $250 Sucks!) all of the employees of all of the big dept store chains received announcements about this too. all employees, in retail, not just the make-up beauty staff were given a "heads up". by big dept stores i am citing barneys, neiman marcus, saks, bloomingdales & nordstrom and of course if you go on LaMer's webside it will reflect inflated prices. when i asked why? to my LaMer consultant she replied "they (the company), just feel they have a strong hold on their market and people will still buy it." this i feel is a bit greedy. i stocked up when i was given the "heads up", bought all of the LaMer products i use: the body lotion, the LaMer Creme of course, they water spray, the lip balm and my sheer foundation. however, i did not have enough money to purchase the $1600+ bottle of the Creme de le Mer. that is the only other size bottle they carry. who does? that's an outrageous outlay of cash that only (i assume), really rich people or movie stars can pay. i sent LaMer a letter expressing that as a LaMer loyal customer i was really disgusted and unhappy they have chosen to mark up their already very expensive products. i also am considering starting a blog and asking LaMer users to boycott LaMer until they go back down. i mean really, upping the price on the product b/c "they think they can get a way with it" is an insult to their existing market. they didn't even tell me "anya, it's more expensive for us to make" they just told me quite plainly they could get away with it. very disappointing i feel. i even sought out other moisturizer brands (like orlane, diamond bisse, Revive, la Prarie, etc). i may be switching to orlane. not sure right now. anyway, that's my view on this current new price point news. now for a tip: i find using the creme de le mer after i spritz myself with laMer's water called "the mist", seals in the moisture and benefits of the mist. that makes my skin soft and DEWY. if you can't afford the mist (about $50, i know, disgusting!), try Evian spray you can get for about $5. the key here is to lock in moisture while applying a very potent skin moisturizer thus making the moisturizer even more powerful, ya dig? xoxoAnya
