La Mer The Renewal Oil

The Renewal Oil may be pricey, but a little goes a long way in achieving a natural-looking glow. Incorporating La Mer's signature repairing Miracle Broth, it promises to help ease even the most stubborn of imperfections by firming the skin and smoothing out lines. Make a habit of applying 3-5 drops over your face and neck every day. As the temperature drops, dab on as an antidote to chapped lips.
