Welcome to a banquet fit for a queen. On offer are the most nourishing, replenishing and delectable products procurable. Be our guest, but please, do not eat a single thing. These dishes are concocted not from edible items, but from the most sumptuous skin ingredients in all the land.

Here's what's on the menu:

The Tonic by La Mer

Kick off the evening by popping a bottle, but beware, this ambrosia isn't squeezed from French grapes, but rather a distilled blend of marine-rich ingredients that will refresh and tone the skin after cleansing. La Mer’s The Tonic as champagne.

Crème de la Mer by La Mer

At a banquet, it is most polite to wait for the host to take the first bite, however, in this case we strongly suggest avoiding consumption altogether. Here, dear guest, do resist enjoying this decadent caviar, delicately placed atop the richest of moisturisers. La Mer’s Crème de la Mer as sour cream.
