Beauty Find: La Mer Whitening Lotion and Essence
April 11, 2006
After 33 years of infrequent sun protection, my face and neck are a totally different color than the rest of me. So, in addition to SPF 15, lately I’ve been using La Mer’s Whitening Essence (a watery treatment that you press onto the skin) and the Whitening Lotion. La Mer promises “dullness, unevenness and discoloration [will] begin to disappear.” But the most noticeable result of using the system is a rash of breakouts for me. All kinds of zits like I’ve never seen before, leaving dark spots behind. That’s the exact opposite effect of what I intended. However, I have noticed that my usual concealer is too dark for me now. I’m willing to continue using the system to see its long term effect, although as we approach summer, that may be an exercise in futility.
