La Mer foundations and products never break me out (knock on wood) even though I still have tempermental skin, which clogs easily, sometimes dry and flaky, sometimes really oily in the T zone. Go figure...So I tried a small 5ml eBay sample, which lasted for 8 weeks.I did a split face test: La Mer on one half, and my usual (Cerave) on the other half for a trial of 8 weeks.Split face test results:Good news, this moisturizes effectively (this is the summer with lots of humidity, so I can't tell yet how it will be in the winter), without clogging, spreads easily, like a watery gel but isn't runny. Soaks into the skin, but leaves it mat, not greasy at all. No flaking on the La Mer side, but lots of flaking on the nose, forehead and chin on the Cerave side (I have to use anti rosacea and anti acne products, and they can be drying - so I'm not blaming Cerave, it's just that it's not moisturizing enough).After 8 weeks, blackheads are hardly noticeable (BONUS this I did NOT expect)- it's almost as if it calmed down my skin so that oil production was regulated.Only bad news, pricy**** Aieeeee... Looking around for a cheaper dupe- if I can't find any, will gladly fork out the $$$$EDIT November 27 2015 Winter dryness kicking in mercilessly...The combo that seems to be working is La Mer Treatment Lotion thinly applied all over first, then the Lotion mixed in with a small amount (one or two pinheads) of Finacea over the T zone where the rosacea/acne is most prominent. Then for the winter only, Cerave oil-free cream on top of that.Now it is the fall, it's drier and colder and the La Mer treatment lotion alone is a bit too light, not enough moisturizing by itself when combined with anti rosacea/acne treatment. But with this combo working, I was happy to shell out the $$$ for the full size bottle, since nothing less expensive worked. Sigh.... My trial with the La Mer treatment concentrate did not work out in the long run did not work out this winter (?lavender too strong for sensitive skin), see my edited review.

I bought this after trying it in the store. I have issues spending this much money on something if it isn't outrageously amazing...in Canada it's only available at Holt Renfew and they do not return products easily. It is pretty cool and different from other toners, it lasted almost a whole year with 2x day use. At this stage in my life though I can't justify spending this much for something that doesn't make a dramatic difference in my regimen, so I will not repurchase. It's not bad, it's good just it's not outstanding.

I am known as a "skin care guru" amongst my friends, and, seriously, I am very obsessed with skincare. I'm also an RN and work in clinical research. So I am no push-over for products but demand they produce results. I first received this as a sample and wasn't impressed by its watery consistency. I didn't use it much at all. However, on the prompting of the ladies at the La MER counter, who seriously believe this to be one of the line's best products, I took this out and started using it. Once I gave it a fair shot, I must say, I fell in love. Love, love. I soon bought a bottle. I use just a few drops, so it will last a long while. It really packs a lot of moisture into that thin, liquids gel-like substance (thanks to hyaluronic acid). It's also, like other La MER products, packed with so many great things, most especially, the "ferment." I use it directly after washing, then top with a serum or two. I often can then skip moisturizer, it truly works that well (and I have dry skin, thanks to retin A). However, I live in a warm climate, and love the Crene De la MER in the cold weather. My first bottle will last me quite some time, I can tell, but I will definitely replace it when it is gone. I really like La MER but this is my favorite (along with the eye cream). It's also a great deal (for La MER, anyway), due to how long it lasts, and how well it works.

I love this non oily lotion. It smoothed and softened my skin after using for a week. Will repurchase it.
