La Mer - Crème de la Mer
- Overall rating:
Crème de la Mer is an intensive moisturising cream for all skin types, including sensitive and dry complexions. In a short time skin becomes softer, firmer and looks virtually creaseless. Ageing lines and pores are less visible and skin is more supple. This formulation aids even the driest of complexions and soothes skin sensitivities. At the heart of this extraordinary formula is Crème de la Mer’s Miracle Broth™ - a nutrient rich broth that is bio-fermented for 3-4 months containing a combination of sea kelp, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, lecithin, vitamins C, E and B12 plus oils of citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower. To activate the broth and release its key ingredients, warm a small amount between fingertips. Pat onto clean, dry skin to instantly feel the soothing effects of the broth. Smooth over face, neck, even under the fragile eye area. Apply day and night – for a lifetime.

Saviour for dry months
This heals my dry skin which is exacerbated by seasonal changes. I rotate this with my other moisturisers, depending on how my skin feels. It has a light perfume which is very pleasant.

4 Stars. Only because of the price! Ekk!
I was lucky enough to receive a small sample pot of this a little while ago and although I wouldn't fork out the $250/$440 for it, it was a very nice cream that I felt hydrated my skin well. I used it on my face as a night cream and my skin visibly looked much nicer in the morning and I found that it worked best around my eye area as a eye cream. After about a week it seemed to have made a good difference to my fine lines around my eyes. I also made use of this little wonder cream by using it on my knees, hands and feet to see how well it hydrated my dry spots. It did the job very nicely and it felt especially soothing and relaxing on my feet. Not to mention had them smelling gorgeous which is always nice, especially after having your feet stuffed in shoes all day. Overall, I wouldn't purchase this cream, only because its way out of my price range, but if you can afford it, I would highly recommend it because it is just divine, can be used on other parts of your body in my experience/opinion and smells really nice, kinda like that smell you get after you've spent time at a day spa. :)

Good things come in small packages!
You fork out a ton of money and you receive this tiny little container of what looks like ordinary moisturising cream. This product has actually worked miracles for me. I religiously apply this to my pimple scars. Over months, the dark spots fade away. It really renews the skin, smoothing and hydrating it. I don't use it as a regular moisturiser because it's too expensive. I was lucky that my mum gave me one so it costed me nothing. If I had a lot of money to spare, I would not hesitate to purchase this product again. It works but at a cost!

Oh so soft
I love La Mer. All their products are worth the price. However, I do find that this cream is too heavy for me and gave me some pimples. I have stopped and switched to the gel version which I am loving at the moment.

Agree - overated
My sister purchased this creme and was generous enough to give me some to trial. This white cream is quite thick in consistency and great in that it can be used on the delicate eye area. I generally prefer lighter lotions or creams which are moistersing enough for my normal skin so did find this a bit too rich and just a tad greasy. Consequently I mainly used this as an eye cream which is nice and moisterising, but therefore can't comment on how effective this is for fine lines/wrinkles/pores (and because I don't have many). I have also heard that this cream might cause breakouts for some people due to its rich consistency (it did for my sister even though she has dry skin) so it might not be for everyone. I believe it would be most suited to those with normal to dry/very dry skin as well as mature skin. Also, this cream might work better if it isn't used daily and perhaps during the colder winter months when the skin is more dehydrated. For the expensive price, if it can't be used daily without causing breakouts, I don't recommend splurging your money on this cream.

Creme de la Creme
This is really quite a thick cream but it's also very hydrating for my super dry skin. It has a nice powdery sort of smell which is very mild and pleasant. I did have a small breakout a few days after use due to the richness of the cream but that settled down and my skin is looking really great and feels really soft. Expensive but a quality product.

Nice but wouldn't repurchase
I got this cream for my birthday, and I'm really happy I got to try it after all the hype about it! For $250, I was expecting miracles to happen, but unfortantely I do not think it's worth it. I mean, it's nice and has a nice fragrance and does brighten up my skin a bit, but it also makes my skin quite oily which I acutally don't mind since I use it at night and need the moisture, but I find that this doesn't moisturise very well, despite all the oiliness.

Too much of a good thing...
I found this product a disappointment. Way too heavy for my skin causing breakouts and irritation around nasal folds even when I avoided the area. It did feel great on a limited number of areas though.

yes expensive, but amazing - so worth it
I love this creme!! it feels like silk on your skin, yes it is expensive, but you don't need to use much so it can last you for quite a while. It really helps hydrate your skin, and it really helps relieve dry skin in the winter.

This cream is soo expensive many anti-aging creams offer the same level of moisterzation like Olay etc. I think if you get over the price this cream is really great and is good to prevent future wrinkles and damage.
