When it comes to skincare I justify high price points for one reason and one reason only: preventative measures. Sure you could waltz into CVS and gran any 50 SPF from the shelf but it is important to consider many other factors when applying anything directly to your skin. La Mer has forever been praised for its purity and protecting ingredients. For summer 2015 Lynn Julian, the skin guru who heads the La Mer counter at Greenwich Saks, helped me stock up on the three best products to have on hand at all times for these beautiful sunny days.
