This is how to score a free La Mer sample and finally get a taste of skin care bougieness

Any beauty lover worth her salt knows that the absolute cream of the crop, literally and figuratively speaking, is the famous La Mer Créme de la Mer cream. Chances are, if you see someone walking around this world with glowing skin, they credit La Mer. There’s a reason that people are willing to drop hundreds of dollars on this magic cream, and it’s not for the pretty packaging.

For most, the price of La Mer Créme de la Mer keeps it out of reach (it can cost between $85-$2,095), but if you’re at the right place at the right time you can get your hands on a free sample of La Mer’s cult-fave creams. While the fact that you can get La Mer at Sephora makes it easier to acquire, it doesn’t solve the problem of the price.

So if you’re in the mood for a freebie, here’s the scoop: the La Mer Pop Up Shop is traveling to different locations throughout the year. And California babes, listen up: From May 10th to 13th, anyone who visits the La Mer Pop Up Shop at the South Coast Plaza will not only be able to get samples of all of La Mer’s famous creams but they’ll be treated to complimentary services as well. You could even run over and pick up a sample for your mama just in time for Mother’s Day.

So if you’re in or near Orange County, California, you’re going to want to run to the La Mer Pop Up shop.


This giant La Mer tub alone is worth the visit — think of the Instagram possibilities.

If you’ve always been curious about this ultra-rich, hydrating cream, now’s your chance to try it at no cost. This is not an opportunity that comes along often.


But if you’re not in Southern California, just remember the pop-up will travel to other locations through the rest of the year. Just cross your fingers it comes to a location near you, because there’s nothing quite like that dewy La Mer finish.
