La Mer celebrates World Oceans day…

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

Heard about World Oceans Day? It takes place annually on the 8th of June to recognize the sea as a vital part of our planet’s ecosystem. To celebrate, La Mer, who partners with Oceania, the world’s biggest ocean advocacy group, has released a limited-edition World Oceans Day Crème de la Mer,  R3 200 for 100ml.

Instead of their usual sea foam green and baby pink logo…

The La Mer you know and love.

…the brand’s opted for a shiny blue.

The new box is nice and shiny and has little fishies on it…

La Mer will also be donating a cool R1,6 million to Oceania’s Habitat Protection campaign.

The new-look jar was delivered to our office last week and caused a frenzy of excitement… until we opened it up and realised it was empty. Hee hee hee… (FYI, we don’t always get the actual product, often it’s just the packaging for photography purposes…)

If you want to get your mitts on the real deal, look out for it around June at selected Edgars and Stuttaford stores.

    It is overpriced, however, they are donating to a worthy cause.

    An overrated product, popularized by OPRAH very expensive and did nothing special to my face. I got the eye cream as well and didnt made any difference at all. I often discourage my friends from it nd recommend Lancome genifique instead.
