I received this as a GWP along with 'The Concentrate' and used both at the same time, as instructed by the very helpful SA: 'Maria' at Sephora in Atlanta GA (Concentrate first, followed by a dab of the Gel-crème). For the first time in 7 years of writing reviews on MUA I actually have very little to say, only because another reviewer - or in this case two, have already covered every possible angle on this newcomer product. The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream is simply a reincarnation of what was an 'average-ok' product to begin with (The Gel-Crème), although the Lime extract in the original formulation didn't agree with me at all (caused bumps,flakiness and redness). However this new version does not agree with me...AND THEN SOME!! I thought it was just my skin being difficult, until I read the other reviews on here. Turns out I wasn't the only one who didn't like the updated version! Definitely ask for a sample of this if you are unsure whether it will agree with you. La Mer has many better formulations within its moisturizer portfolio imo.Selena x~ My HG list ~(I've sampled 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, as I love trying out new stuff all the time - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora.

I got a tiny sample of this to try last year. The results? I was actually surprised....Firstly this was a GWP when I purchased, or rather re-purchased a tube of 'The Hand Treatment' which I adore. Secondly, I wasn't able to use this daily due to the silicone content, however used only a few times a week I did notice a slight reduction in blemishes (perhaps over 50%) left over from the odd 1 or 2 pimples on my chin. This came as quite a surprise to me, considering all the poor reviews I'd read online. I used only the smallest amount of the concentrate - perhaps less than half a drop, followed by a tiny dab of the gel-crème as instructed by the SA at the La Mer counter, to seal in the benefits. I must stress though that the results were not any greater than a vast number of brightening or regenerating serums I've used previously. The soft skin sensation only lasted as long as the product was on and purely down to the 'slip-feel' produced by the silicones. The moment I washed my face I was back at square one. Although I used for almost a month on one small area, I didn't really notice any difference to that part of my face in terms of skin texture or appearance. Perhaps this is a product whose effect accumulates over many months? To me it just seems a bit overpriced for what it is, considering I can achieve the results with any number of skincare products out there. For me it's a 'like' but not a repurchase.

This product is very expensive and it does not have any advantage over other cheap moisturizers. My skin is dry-normal and it doesn’t feel like it moisturizes it. Also, my skin absorbs every product. I have never seen any moisturizer other than this that my skin does not absorb. After 1 month of usage my skin started to reject it.

I have been a loyal La Mer customer for several years and this is one LM product that I will not repurchase. I am continually perplexed by several of the containers they use for their products. I am adding this bottle to the worst category of containers (it joins the dipping stick bottle for the concentrate that opens the very expensive product up to contamination and gives no precise way to measure it for use). I have to shake this bottle of Treatment Lotion to get any of the drops of it to dispense into my hand. What a mess and a waste of product when too much comes out.As far as the actual lotion ... I have only had it and used it for ten days, but La Mer asked for my review at this point, so I will give it. After using it as instructed, I neither see nor feel any difference in my skin and I basically feel like I am smoothing on a lightly sticky water without benefit.

I adore this powder. I literally love it. I've used so so many loose powders Laura Mercier, Chanel, Lancome, Coty Airspun and many more. This knocks them all out of the water. It reminds me a little of the Chanel Poudre Crystalline that was discontinued years ago though this is so so much better. The first day I applied it my partner commented that my face looked more slender. If you look at the powder in the jar in daylight you can see a slight fine glitter in it. Don't let that put you off when applied to the skin it is not glittery it just gives an angelic glow to the skin like nothing else I've ever come across. The packaging is so darn gorgeous & the included puff is so cute I don't use it I keep it in an old eye cream box to keep it nice. I'm so happy with this powder I've just ordered the fluid foundation I can't wait to try it. So far I've used this to set my under eye and face and used it to bake. It works beautifully for each method. This powder is stunning & worth every penny. It just blends so seamlessly into the skin in the skin, Like how ordinary powders do after a spritz of Fix+. I would never consider using a powder without a fixing spray but this powder you really could forgo the spray. Though I will continue to use Fix+ as I love how it melds my contour. blush, shadow & highlight. If you want to add a truly luxurious effective powder to your arsenal then please try this powder. You won't be dissapointed. You know it's good when your man see's a difference and compliments your make up un prompted.
