VIOLET CODE APPROVED:
Make some room on your vanity for this supersized jar.

The only thing better than Crème de La Mer? More Crème de La Mer. The world-renowned lush, dense, healing moisturizer is an OG hero product–one that skin care aficionados (including some of the most visible people on the planet and the experts who care for their complexions) have sworn by for decades. So when the brand offered us their fabulous Crème in a stunning one pound jar, there was no other reasonable response but a breathless “Yes, please.”
There is nothing quite like 16.5 ounces of La Mer. The “Mega Mer” (as we’ve christened it internally) is so luxurious, so nourishing, so indulgent that the VIOLET LAB couldn’t help but relish the sheer weight of it in our hands and revel at the sight of it on our humble vanities–like a precious work of art or ancient artifact on a pedestal. But of course, it’s not just the jar we instantly became obsessed with–this Miracle Broth infused richer-than-rich cream revives and restores even the driest, most brittle complexions with one quarter-sized scoop warmed between the fingers and pressed lovingly into the skin. We were confident there wasn’t a person alive who could find fault with this exquisite thing, but it’s our job to trust but verify, so we sent it to the Committee Of Industry Experts for their official sign-off.
“Is there anything more glamorous and swoon-worthy than the original luxury cult cream in a monster size one-pound jar?”
—SARAH BROWN, Executive Director, VIOLET LAB
“The ultra-rich Crème de la Mer makes my legendary client Mary J. Blige glow like none other. For the holidays I’ll gift her the one pound size to ensure she always has it at her fingertips, since it has become a must-have in her skincare wardrobe. At first touch, sensitivities look soothed and dryness disappears because this iconic moisturizer wraps skin in a decadent cocoon of luxurious hydration. It’s the perfect skincare gift for colder months.”
—PORSCHE COOPER, Makeup Artist
“Make sure you keep the season in mind when taking care of your skin. A colder, dryer climate can take a toll, so be sure to have this heavy-duty moisturizer (and a lot of it!) around.”
—KRISTIE STEICHER, Brow Artist
The truly fabulous, must-have of the season “Mega Mer” is officially VIOLET CODE APPROVED and has earned a (large) spot on THE SHELVES.
