A skincare powerhouse that diminishes the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores, infusing skin with the look of youth.
Borne from La Mer’s heritage of healing, this transformational serum dramatically diminishes the look of lines and wrinkles and infuses skin with youthfulness.
A powerful anti-aging trio: a high concentrate of The Miracle Broth™, The Marine Peptide Ferment and The Regenerating Ferment™, infused with marine plant stem cells and colloidal gold, helps skin trigger this natural production of “youth proteins,” collagen and elastin. Together they work to help radically diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as pores, revealing a vibrant, smoother and firmer looking complexion.
In a day, skin looks rejuvenated, glowing with youthful radiance. Over time, skin appears seemingly ageless.
To release key ingredients, shake gently and sweep several drops of this silky, ultralight elixir over face and neck each morning and evening. For ultimate results, follow with Crème de la Mer.

La Mer Introduces
The Hydrating Facial
Dr. Max Huber’s legacy of healing and renewing the skin is celebrated once again with La Mer’s introduction of The Hydrating Facial. The ultimate in moisturization, this two-zoned mask delivers superior hydration through a luxurious, sensorial, spa-like experience to reawaken the appearance of youth. In minutes, dry complexions are renewed, visibly transforming the skin. Skin is left hydrated, nourished, smoothed and conditioned with a resilient healthy glow, ready to receive the benefits of Crème de la Mer.
Skin concerns such as dryness, fine lines and dark spots are all addressed in the
100% cotton, two-zoned mask that is saturated with the fast-acting formula.
La Mer’s Hydrating Facial contains a trio of transformative benefits that makes this new product so effective:
The Sea Moist Ferment, a special blend of dark green algae gathered from all over the world in countries such as Japan, Indonesia, Brittany and the US, infuses the skin with intense hydration.
Marine plant algae such as Ascophyllum Nodosum and Aparagopsis Armata help
to diminish visible signs of aging. Dark spots and discoloration begin to fade in appearance, revealing a clearer, more even complexion. The Hydrating Facial also contains cellular lipids and plant extracts derived from melon and avocado to
provide a smoother skin texture.
Ultra soft to the touch, the spun-lace cotton mask is embedded with tourmaline and Mariponic Ferments that energize and set molecules into motion. The Hydrating Facial mask drives the formula into the skin, boosting hydration.
When making The Hydrating Facial, a high energy inversion process is used to
blend the formula together creating a liquid crystal structure. This gives the formula the properties of both a solid and a liquid. As a solid, the formula suspends andprotects the ingredients while still on the mask. When applied to the skin, the formula has the properties of a liquid as it delivers activity to the skin.
This advanced formula saturates the plush mask for enhanced penetration to condition and soothe sensitivities. Skin becomes softer and looks smoother.
Apply upper zone mask on clean skin. Gently smooth and press into place.
Next, apply lower zone mask, gently smoothing and pressing into place, overlapping at the cheekbones. Leave on for 8 minutes. Gently remove and pat remaining treatment over face and neck, allowing skin to fully absorb the extraordinary benefits. Use morning or evening once a week and follow with Crème de la Mer.
The Hydrating Facial
Suggested Retail Price $250 for 6 applications
The Hydrating Facial will be available in October 2009 at select Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and www.lamer.com

I’m hooked on the ethereal, soft-focus finish of La Mer Treatment Powder Foundation, $90. Fittingly, its base ingredient is Airgel, a literally weightless material used by NASA.
To soften the edgiest makeup looks, Lancome’s Aaron De May cleverly borrows a stroke from Renaissance painters, highlighting faces with gold—on cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, Cupid’s bow, or center of eyelids (my personal fave). Best gilty pleasures: Lancôme Poudre Liberté Highlighting Powder, $40, Sensai The Lipstick by Kanebo, $55, and Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Gold Emulsion, $36.
Ouidad Double Detangler, $24, is designed to gently unfurl ringlets. But I found it also effortlessly rakes deep conditioner through my long straight hair, pre-swim, making it my new beach-bag staple.
Runway Dorothy-worthy ruby eyeshadow, sparkling up models’ lids at Prada.
Reality Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Red Iron mascara, $28, and palette, $58, serving up vibrant yet flattering crimson shades that most of us can pull off (seriously). The exception: pale blondes (you’ll want to avoid the albino bunny look).
THE BIG APPLES
My beauty crutch: heaps of blush. But fall’s high-drama eyes and shockingly bold lips demand a lighter touch. For a featherweight fix, Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tint, $9.99, serves up just the right dewy dose.
