Where—and Why—to Get a Fermented Facial in Chicago
This month, a La Mer Sculpting Facial is discounted at Bluemercury. Maybe it’s time to smear fermented algae on your face.

Luxe skincare line La Mer recently introduced its new Lifting and Firming Mask to market, a concentrated ferment of algae and active plant stem cells said to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production. Fermentation doesn’t come cheap: a 1.7 ounce jar of the stuff will set you back $230, but with that comes the promise to visibly tighten, firm and refine your face and neck.
To reap the benefits for a lot less, Bluemercury is offering a new La Mer Sculpting Facial using those same concentrated products. The 50-minute facial incorporates the brand’s lifting ferment with its trademarked “miracle broth,” the nutrient-rich secret sauce found in all of its cult-favorite formulas.
The La Mer Sculpting Facial normally costs $300, but now through the end of the month Bluemercury has discounted it to $95. Book your appointment before June 30 at Bluemercury in Lincoln Park (2208 N. Halsted St., 773-327-6900) or find more locations here.
