This mask will remain my HG as long as they still continue with the production. It made me love my skin more than i already do :))))) its milky essence and absorbed really well. The scent is very nice calming seaweed.LOVE!!! It made my skin super soft,radiant,clear,hydrating and didnt leave any grease or residue behind And the result lasted even till the next morning :))))

Yikes. My mom is a devout follower of La Mer and at age 50 she has flawless skin. She gave me one of these facials to try. I used a scrub and applied this mask. There is a lot of product on the mask! I rubbed in to my face and neck and went to bed. In the morning I woke up with several cystic pimples (and I never break out - maybe one tiny pimple during TOM, but that's it). I was horrified. I think that this may be a fantastic mask for people that really need that moisture (very dry skin), but for me it was too rich. My skin didn't look glowy or dewy at all. I was extremely disappointed. I do still love the regular La Mer creme for nightime.
I prefer the NARS aqua gel hydrator over this.

From the La Mer website: Utterly sumptuous, this pure cotton mask saturates dry, dehydrated skin on contact with Hydrating Ferments and tourmaline - encouraging it to feel hydrated, nourished and conditioned. Potent marine extracts help diminish visible signs of aging to reveal a more youthful vitality. Skin looks smoother, feels soft and supple to the touch. Includes 6 masks.
My Impressions: The Hydrating Facial was introduced in early 2010 and replaces the previous offering which was called Radiant Facial. In this review I will compare the two and point out differences between these products. I liked the predecessor mask very much, so I was curious to see whether this could live up to the high expectations set by the former La Mer mask. The mask itself still consists of an upper and a lower part, made of thick high quality cotton, each part comes individually sealed in a plastic tray. The mask is soaked with a white soft cream, in terms of color it is more white and opaque than the old product which was more of a translucent slightly yellowish gel. Each mask in the Radiant Facial came with a primer vial which was a gel to apply before putting the cotton mask on. I actually liked the way the primer soaked right into my skin. The Hydrating Facial does not come with the primer anymore, so it is supposedly already incorporated in the mask which makes it a one step product. The mask feels nicely soothing and cool when it touches the skin, similar to the old product. In terms of the effect on my skin I cannot detect much difference yet because I have only used the new product a few times but so far I like it.
Price comparison: The Radiant Facial came in a box with 8 applications including 8 primer vials for $320, this Hydrating Facial costs $250 for 6 uses, and contains no primer vials, so La Mer slightly increased the price.
Overall: At over $40 per use this is definitely a splurge, but I really like this product. For me, this is one of the best masks on the market, it feels luxurious and soothing. Perfect pampering, I will continue to buy this.
