This is a great heavy moisturizer. But no more than Pond's creme or any other thick cream. I have used it on and off for about a year with no ill effects, but nothing amazing either. It didn't perform miracles ~ it did hydrate extremely well and leave my face very soft though. But because of the high price, low amount of product and the lacking performance there is no way I can justify buying this again. It also doesn't mix well with other products. I tried many times to add a Hylauronic Acid or oil or something on top of it and the other product kind of slid off. I am about finished with my jar and that will be it for me.
Worked really well for me for about 2 months - the first time I used it you can see the effects overnight. After 2 months Im not sure the effect'/impact on my skin is as strong. For the price I paid and for the diminishing effects...I wont buy it again. I think I can get the same benefits from a cheaper brand - I already tried Kiehls and it worked better than La Mer. Nevertheless, the skin transformation when I tried it for the first time was amazing.
HG HG HG!!! This is the only thing that helps my rosacea! One week without it and I get flare ups! Can't live without this miracle cream! It is very heavy, so I would only recommend this for people with very dry skin.
I've been using La Prairie and my sister passed me a jar of this cream because she broke out after just 2 applications and it's just too expensive to throw away.
I've heard that it's similar and even better than La Prairie so I thought, why not?
After I used it for 2 days, twice each day, I've developed several white heads on my cheeks and 2 acne pimples on my forehead. I checked the ingredients and saw mineral oil. That's probably the reason why. My skin is not suitable for mineral oil based products.
Probably just me. But not gonna touch this again.
I have an oily skin, and i had a doubt of use this cream since a long time. when i finally decided to buy gel de la mer, i asked the beauty advisor to give me a sample of cream de la mer, as i heard that some woman use gel de la mer during the day and cream de la mer at night. So, when i tried cream de la mer, i found out that i love it more, compares to gel de la mer. So, next time i will buy cream de la mer as soon as i finished my gel de la mer
I've been a La Prairie user for 13 years and although I wouldn’t change my favourite skin care, La Mer its my second option to treat my flaky dryness areas due to climate change. To keep my skin in top condition I spare no expense on a good product and I believe it’s a good long term investment. I never had anything done apart from a facial, weekly exfoliation or an occasional microdermabration, but have a daily routine of taking my make-up off every day before going to bed and tone and moisturise at least 30 minutes before bed time so the moisturiser will be absorbed onto the skin. A good balanced diet and lots of water during the day also helps and by protecting from environment pollutants and UVF aggressors its ideal. I'm also a strong believer that less is more and normally go light on the make up side specially in the summer. The wrong make up products can cause irritation on the epidermis and enlarge pores. Skin needs to breath and oxygen to renew their cells and produce more collagen and by doing the simple steps you will be on the way of aging gracefully.
My sister brought this back for me from the U.K a few years back. I didn't think it was anything great and considering it cost the best part of $500 AU for a 60 mL pot I didn't even contemplate repurchasing. Then, about a year and a half ago my Mum randomly bought it for me for some reason. After only a couple of days I noticed a dramatic improvement in my skin. Before I was using La Mer, I had always received compliments on my skin but ONLY when I was wearing make-up. Without make-up my skin was dull and tired looking even though it has always been soft and smooth. La Mer gave me the clarity and radiance my skin lacked. Every day since I have started using it again I'm proud to look in the mirror when I wake up and I don't feel the need to wear make-up as much anymore. The reason I didn't love it the first time I had it was because I wasn't warming it between my hands first and trust me this really makes a difference. I usually warm it between my hands for 10-30 seconds depending on the temperature. Warming it between the hands releases key ingredients. My room mates could not believe it when I told them how much it costs, but after a few weeks of seeing me use it they went and bought their own one! One of them was suffering from slight acne scarring at the time and it's pretty much disappeared now.
No matter how much I can't afford this I will continue to purchase for years to come. I thank La Mer every morning when I wake up to clear, glowing skin. It's also comforting to know that I'm doing something good for my skin in the long term.
At first I hated this cream. I fel to the hype and splured so much money and was disappointed. I thin thats why I stuck to it. After a month using I saw a really good improvement. M pores very tight and clean and my skin looked fresh and was'nt that oily anymore. I must say I used the Cleansing Foam, Tonic for normal skin types and this creme twice a day. I used it for half a year and I still have 1/3 of the 30ml pot. At the moment I'm not very consequent in using, because I'm trying the Karin Herzog products, another hype I ran after! ;)
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.
I have bought this moisturizer for the past 4 years now. I am never without it. However, you need to cycle it. It once made my skin break out because I used it for a long period of time, and did not use any other moisturiser at all.
I've now got the gel version of it, which I find a bit too light and so you have to use more of it. Whereas the price is the same for both :( - Better off with the cream.
NOTE: IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE HOW YOU APPLY THIS CREAM. IF YOU DO NOT USE THE BROTH RELEASING METHOD, YOU WILL JUST BE DISAPPOINTED AT HOW OIL YOUR SKIN BECOMES AFTER USING THIS. SO DON'T WASTE YOUR EXPENSIVE CREAM AND USE IT LIKE IT SHOULD BE USED :)
