La Mer, La Mer

La Mer, La Mer


For the ultimate in luxury skincare, you cant look past Creme de la Mer & now with the release of their new Moisturizing Soft Cream, La Mer gets even better.

About five years ago I became familiar with this iconic product when I took part in the launch of the then brand new La Mer Foundation. While spending several days applying La Mer to an exclusive group of customers at Smith & Caughey, I got completely absorbed into not only the beauty of the product itself, but also the story behind it. If you do your research you can read all about the famous Aerospace physicist Dr Max Hubert, who personally invented it. After suffering burns in a laboratory, he began a quest to transform the look of his damaged skin & believed the sea (particularly kelp) was a miraculous resource in which to create the ultimate healing cream. After 12 years & numerous experiments he finally perfected the precious & nurturing ‘Miracle Broth’ which was eventually incorporated into Creme De la Mer.

When I  first tried the original formula of  La Mer I was very excited, as I literally felt like I was applying liquid gold to my face. We all know that La Mer doesnt come cheap, so you naturally expect amazing results! Unfortunately, no matter how hard I tried, the creme was just too rich & active for my skin, causing sensitivity. Highly concentrated formulas will do this to sensitive skin & I think the original La Mer is best for very dry or mature skins due to its richness.

Now I am using the La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream & I love it. I was introduced to my new friend at a beautiful ‘Ocean Themed’ launch that Estee Lauder hosted for all their favorite beauty writers & exclusive La Mer clientele. We were all given the cream to try & I was impressed by the new light & creamy texture that glides onto the skin like silk.

This new formula delivers all the benefits of the original La Mer, as it is deeply replenishing, but this formulation doesn’t feel heavy – plus it has caused me absolutely no sensitivity. I hope I can afford to buy a new jar when my current one runs out!
