Hello,

I am looking for a wholesaler in La Mer skin care.I am fearful of dealing with China so any wholesale source in North America would be great.
Thanks so much.

Hi..

I deal with a few companies that are wholesale and carry Le Mer. The problem is this...LeMer like CLINIQUE doesn't offer much of a discount from the distribution centers. Like CLINIQUE it's only like 4 dollars difference then a store purchase. By the time you add shipping your price is higher. The only way to get LeMer at a very low cost is from LeMer directly..Problem is this, they will want you to be a storefront and purchase a really large amount.

Becareful with companies in China.. A lot of stuff is knock offs!

Thank-you for your reply.I have noticed that Strawberrynet. and other online stores do carry La Mer.How do you think they are managing that? Oddly,their prices are *higher* than those on ebay.Where are sellers on ebay getting their suppliers?
Any help would be very much appreciated.

I know for a fact that Strawberrynet is only selling their items about 5 dollars more then what they are paying...You have to understand..when you have a retail store on line with a lot of products like Strawberrynet. Some products like LeMer will not make you a big profit but will attract customers to your site and hopefully they will purchase other items too... I know this because
I have a retail store online..and I deal with skincare companies all the time..I carry LeMer on my site..and I have the same prices as Strawberrynet that's how I know. In order to get a really deep discount.. You have to purchase in bulk and they require a storefront.

The lower price on Ebay is either a knock off which believe me is out there...just lilke there are knock off perfum.....or someone in the biz getting it for them...I remember a woman I met years ago..she worked for a famous makeup company in NY. She would buy the makeup at employee discount and resell it on ebay..she made a killing ! Also look real close and read the details on some of the listings.....ONE - THE HAND TREATMENT .24 OZ (7ml) trial size
Note ...Trial Size!!!!!
That's a trick I found some people do on ebay..they will show a picture of the full bottle....most people do NOT take the time to read the full ad..somewhere down the in that ad..is the word trial size......Meaning..they got this for FREE while in a department store...so selling it for 9.99 is great profit!
Hope this helps..if you need anything else.just give me a shout:)
