Fashion Math: Is A Jar of $130 La Mer Cream Really Worth It?

Beauty addicts and celebrities swear by La Mer as the must-buy facial moisturizer. Heck, supermodel Kate Moss has even been rumored to slather her entire body in it. But can you possibly justify spending a whopping $130 on just one ounce of skin cream?  This one is simple, so allow us.

We should note that a little La Mer goes a long way. A small dab of this gel each day is all you need, so make one ounce of La Mer last six months (that’s 180 days) and it will have cost you less than one daily snack at the vending machine.
