Luckily, Allison at Tartan & Sequins let me in on a little secret: you get two samples when you purchase anything on La Mer's website. Even more brilliant?! La Mer usually has a promo code of some kind (right now it's POWER) that will score you a deluxe sample. Since I already had my eye on the lip balm, I bit the bullet on the $50 price tag and scored about $100 worth of free product. So the way I look at it, I made $50. That's how I do math, anyway.

Look, I realize spending $150 on a tiny jar of face cream is ridiculous, but that's why I'm telling you about this whole "order one thing, get three samples of other things" thing. It's the only way to try this stuff out, man.
Anyone else using La Mer products? What do you think? Did you buy yours or get them as samples??
