Fixed my acne prone discolorations in 2 weeks!!
I heard about this cream because my friend said she started using it & it fixed her hormonal skin. Before spending the money on it I read reviews & people mentioning that it fixed their acne & that they stopped breaking out because of it. I got some samples of it & started using it on vacation. My cheeks were broken out for a few month with pretty bad whiteheads & I had gotten a bit of scarring. I noticed a big difference after using this after 2 weeks! It cleared up the acne & it healed up the dark scars. I was in disbelief!!! Because of the price of this I tended to stray & use cheaper products. If my face started breaking out I'd turn back to this. It is a great moisturizer for dry winter months. For the summer the gel cream or lotion would be better. I currently use the La Mer lotion because it is slightly cheaper altho it's not as concentrated. It still moisturizes very well tho. My acne has never gotten as bad as it was before I started using La Mer.
Not For Wrinkles Ladies!
I go through a lot of research and ingredients for skincare and recently I found out this product does nothing for wrinkles. I'm relieved because I don't have wrinkles, but then again if you're looking for a wrinkle fighting creme, this isn't it. It super super moisturizing. It makes my skin feel so amazingly soft and hydrated the morning after when I wake up. Dry, tight skin is supple and flakiness is pretty much gone wherever any breakouts are healing (benzyl peroxide and salicylic acid makes skin peel). Whenever I can splurge during the winter, this is the skincare product I will splurge on. The smell and the feel of this product is wonderful but I don't recommend it for the summer months if you live in a humid climate.
Worth the splurge for sure if your looking for a rich, hydrating night moisturizer, NOT to get rid of wrinkles.
nothing else compares
the history of le mer is what makes it so fascinating. this creme was designed to heal, restore, repair, and rejuvenate skin. worth every penny! and remember, your makeup will only look as good as the face it is on. makeup starts with skincare!
If you have the $$ Go For It!!!
I once owned a medical spa so when I say I've used it all.... I really have used it all! Because my skin has become so used to the "higher" quality products.. just any ol' drugstore product wont do!! I have tried though:) But for over a year I struggled with this crinkly mess right around the dark circles under my eyes and I was SO desperate I bit the bullet and bought a little sample from one of the girls at Saks (sshhhh).. Well I'm SO glad I did!! Within days it smoothed and was plump and back to life! I use the La Mer Gel on my skin all over when I fly and when I go up north to drier climates. I can't use it everyday or I will break out. The Creme is definately best for under my eyes personally but it sure feels great all over! Especially my neck, I'm almost 40.. I kinda need it:)
Excellent Cream. Except for....
The FIRST ingredient is petroleum! The cheapest, most polluting, "filler" ingredient available! Why? That's the reason that you have to "warm" it between your hands, to melt the waxy petrol.
I do use it, though, it is a deeply healing cream. I had a deep scar that people don't even see anymore. When the weather is dry and my skin is dry, sensitive, and irritable, this stuff is fantastic. It's very expensive, so I usually split it with a friend. It lasts forever, stays fresh forever, and you don't need it every day or all over your face & neck. You can use it as a spot treatment.
I would love to try the serum and see if it's as effective as the original cream. It doesn't have the petroleum.
I just applied the creme on my skin and I love how you have to first warm up the crème between your hands to release the active ingredients. Just makes the LA MER experience more exciting.. I like the consistency and texture of the crème, its quite thick, my skin feels very moisturized. I have very sensitive skin, and usually most products sting for a few minutes after application. However this product feels very soothing and cooling . It’s pricey, but I think a 30ml tub( I purchased this tub) would last 2 months or more. So a little definitely goes a long way.
I love La Mer moisturizing cream. I have only used the sample sizes and my skin changed within a week. It was so dry ( almost alligator) and went from dry to smoothy and silky in a week. I just hate how expensive it is because i can't afford it :(
Super moisturiser with instant results, but be wary of putting TOO MUCH!
I got this for free, so yes, I'm obviously not going to plunk down that amount of money on moisturiser. Not yet, anyway. Maybe when I'm almost wrinkly :)
Anyway, I received a sample pot of this, and was taught the right way to apply it. You need a very small amount on your fingertips, rub them together, then pat pat pat all over your face. I saw immediate results. My face was brighter and plumper the next day. It almost gave me a smooth, almost pore-less visage.
Problem is that if you use too much or consecutively (every night, for me), it tends to break you out. I suppose the fact that I live in a tropical country factors in, so people in colder climates should fare better with this.
Will it justify the price? Honestly, I saw the moisturiser's immediate effects and I do think it's worth the money IF it suits your climate. For me and this tropical country, probably not.
It's all in my head...
and I'm fine with that. I just threw down almost $300 on face cream, people, let me think it's the best thing since donuts. And actually- it IS good but I wouldn't say it's The Best. There are some definite plusses to this product: I love how rich it is but goes on light (for a heavy moisturizer). I love how it smells. I like that it doesn't interfere with my makeup's ability to stay put, either. I like to slather this on and get into my bed. Then I just lay there and pretend I'm rich.
Don't waste your money!
I have no idea why this product is so expensive $130 for a 1oz jar and hyped the way it is. It's a waste of money and the product ingredients are EXACTLY the same as Nivea for only $8 for a 6.8oz jar. They both contain Mineral Oils so if you have oil/comb skin it's a big no-no.
