I love pulling out the little tube and seeing La Mer on the tube.
I love that it smells almost exactly like the face cream.
You need just a small amount of this cream (about the size of a baby pea) to cover both hands. It sinks in very well, though a very faint greasiness is left behind so I tend to apply it only to the backs of my hands. My hands are left soft and supple for hours! It even survives the surgical strength soap I use at work.
And yes, it is incredibly expensive. I know there are cheaper hand creams that work great. But, sometimes a girl just needs to be pampered!
