Beauty Editor Sarah Halliwell’s Luxury La Mer Essentials

Discover the world of La Mer at the Dublin Pop-Up from July 25-27 and find your summer favourites – here are ours:


It’s hard to pick favourites, but first has to be Crème de la Mer. There are now five different textures of the original cream, which first launched in 1994, to suit a variety of different skin types and times of year. I have stayed loyal to the original rich velvety Crème de la Mer, as a tiny bit goes a long way and it’s so restoring for drier skin – but The Moisturising Cool Gel Cream is wonderfully light and refreshing in the summer.

Other standouts for summer? The Lip Balm is highly addictive, and if you invest in a pot, you’ll find it lasts for ages (though I have my eye on The Lip Volumizer too, a silky pink nourishing treatment for lips). I also swear by The Face and Body Gradual Tan, a fool proof and luxurious way to warm up your skin for summer without any hassle or lengthy prep. It smells good and gives skin a gorgeous natural-looking tan. Finally, The Renewal Oil is a brilliant multitasker for summer – add a few drops to your moisturiser for a glowy finish and on dry skin after a day in the sun. You can even apply to the ends of your hair to smooth frizz.

This month, from July 25-27, La Mer is taking up residency in Dublin and is inviting you to explore the story behind the brand and its legendary formulas.

Just a stone’s throw away from lively Grafton Street, at 58 South William Street, experience a full offering of complimentary treats for you to enjoy, from discovering your favourite texture of the iconic moisturiser to finding your radiant shade of Skincolor de La Mer™, you’ll leave with your own samples to take home*.

Exclusive events with local beauty and lifestyle experts are also on offer.
