La Mer

La Mer was founded by an German-born astro-physicist named Max Huber. After suffering serious burns in a lab accident in the 1950s, he turned to the sea to find and formulate powerful healing ingredients that eventually became Creme de La Mer. It is owned by Estee Lauder Companies and is available online and at luxury retailers worldwide.

Lip Treatments -La Mer -The Lip Balm

on 3/17/2019 5:24:00 PM


For the results I experienced way too expensive! Just because its a luxurious brand doesnt mean the product is wonderfull. I have very dry chapped lips and this product just coats the lips for a short period. Average blistex quality! I have better results with Toyomilk dark lip balm. Save your money...

Treatments (Face) -La Mer -The Concentrate

on 3/14/2019 11:21:00 PM


Now I'm in big trouble, I don't want to ever be without this product! I tried the La Mer Concentrate and it is incredible! I had cosmetic surgery one year ago and wanted to try this on my surgical scars. In only one month, it helped to improve the appearance of the scars. It has also helped improve the texture of my face and the appearance of age spots. I am using the concentrate in the morning and evening. For the first time in years, I feel like I can actually go without foundation. I have tried the cream in the past and was not very impressed. I didn't really see any results from the cream. I really wish I was one of those people who didn't like the concentrate.....I love it, so I'm now looking for a night job to pay for it!

Treatments (Face) -La Mer -The Treatment Lotion

on 3/5/2019 10:26:00 PM


If there ever was a "filler" product by la mer, the treatment lotion is it. I had to return this product because it added nothing to my skin regime. In fact, I tend to be more on the oily side and do not like products that will cause me to feel greasy/dirty by the end of the day -- this actually did. It added a layer underneath my products which is, theoretically, supposed to contribute to the absorption of your other la mer products, moisturizers, etc. I found that, the first day, I did not notice much difference, but by the third day of using this product, I noticed that I had a couple blemishes and when I was washing my face and went to pat it down with my toner, it was much dirtier than normal.

Conclusion: If you want to drop the cash to feel like you're "completing" your luxurious la mer routine, go for it. But, I do not find this product to be nearly as beneficial as their other stand alone products.

Powder -La Mer -The Powder

on 2/26/2019 10:54:00 PM


Well I finallly got to try this. I was so hoping it would be the miraculous and gorgeous product as described in reviews, but for me it was a big letdown. I respect other people's love for it, but from my point of view, as someone who has used many face powders, this is not that good. It has glitter - microglitter - lots of it. The glitter seems to go away after a few minutes but then there's nothing. I didn't get any amazing, glowing finish at all. Therefore I don't think it is worth the $125. Also, the powder puff was nothing special. It was exactly the same as the puffs in other loose powder. (At least as far as I could tell). I have been using Physician's Formula for a long time and will stick with it.

Masks -La Mer -The Hydrating Facial


Hands down this is the richest sheet mask I've ever used! I was expecting the liquid to be more like a serum, but it's literally like a tub of thick moisturizer with 2 sheet masks thrown in as an afterthought. From the moment I opened the packaging for the upper and lower mask pieces I could see the sheet within the transparent plastic tray, covered in a milky essence. Curious, I swiped a little bit off as there was plenty of excess and rubbed into my hand. The texture although fluid enough was very rich, even oily, and not just on my hand, after I'd applied the mask for 10 minutes and removed, there were large patches of the liquid still sat on my skin that hadn't been absorbed (tells me this would suit dehydrated skin pretty well) and as per instructions I gently massaged this in to face and neck area. Unlike SK2 masks for example, I didn't find that there was tons of essence left over, it was just sufficient for the single use.

I used this straight after a hot shower which is the only time my skin feels parched somewhat but despite that and even once massaged in there was still an oily layer all over my face. Luckily said heaviness did not equate to acne the next morning, although having said that I wouldn't like to risk using on consecutive nights and at this price point nor would I be inclined to! (got my single piece to test off e-bay).

Did it help relieve the dry, tight feeling on my face after my hot shower? Yes, and then some! All that saturation also gave me a nice dewy (albeit oily) glow for the next couple of hours until I got into bed and awoke to my normal-looking self. But this is the thing...I could very easily achieve similar results without the oiliness and most definitely without the price tag ($250 for 6 pieces). I didn't find the actual sheet mask itself to be of good quality which was disappointing when you're spending this kind of money. In fact it dried right up before the 8 minutes application time was even up and the quality of it just felt cheap. The packaging itself however was luxurious and good quality and gets a thumbs up from me.

Bottom line: If you have some money to burn and are veering more towards mature, dry and non-sensitive (it contains fragrance and Eucalyptus oil amongst other potential irritants) then you might just find this to be a godsend. If you need hydration it will hydrate make no mistake about that! For most other skin types (and pockets) there's lots of other alternatives out there that are just as good if not better.
