Travel Trials

When traveling, not only do I take advantage of those little trial sizes at the local drug store, I also take along all my free trial cosmetics I have collected over the year.

La Mer

This year, I was really lucky to get a sample of La Mer--yes, that really expensive moisturizer. ($130.00 for 1 oz.)  A friend of mine is totally smitten with it and says it is worth paying the price.

It does smell good, but after a week, for me the jury is still out.  I checked out other reviews, and found that the jury was still out for a lot of people. Some say I should try it longer.  I think it may work best with dry/troubled skin, as it originally was discovered to work well for burns.

At the same time, I was trying another moisturizer sample for comparison. I really liked that one! Check it out on my Baby Boomer Beauty page~


  1. Great idea to take along your trial cosmetics. I think it would add to the adventure of travel. I've never tried La Mer - just as well you're not overly impressed at $130 an ounce!

    1. I like my other serum moisturizer better!

  2. Paula! How did you score a sample of LaMer??? For $130 an ounce, I would need to see HUGE differences in my face! When do you return home? I love at y'all do this every year! Soooooo cool! Hugs girly! Serene

    1. I got the sample from my friend who is smitten with it! She lovess me~

      I return end of jan; missed you this year!

  3. I always save all my travel size products and free samples of makeup, moisturizers, and perfumes for my travels. It really is a great idea. Glad you are back from your trip and posting again. I have always wondered if LaMer was worth it. You were so lucky to get a large sample to try.

    1. Ahh great minds think alike! The sample is small actually, but I am on my second week so enough to know its not a miracle!
