La Mer

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.

The Lip Balm

I do not like the mint flavour. Moreover, the mint is not good for my dry lips, it makes it even worse. I will go back to my absolute favourite: the sisley lip balm - nothing can beat this one!

The Cleansing Foam

TLDR: This cleanser is OK, but at this price point OK doesn’t cut it for me personally. I have other, cheaper cleansers that outperform this one, thus I will probably not repurchase. I have mixed feelings about this cleanser. On one hand, it goes a long way - a pea size dollop foams up nicely. It feels very good massaging into the skin and rinses off clean with no lingering residue. My skin also feels soft and clean after using, not too tight and dried out. On the other hand, the cleansing power of this alone is too weak to remove all my makeup. If I want to use this cleanser I have to use a makeup remover, effectively pre-washing the makeup off my face to then follow up with this. This defeats the purpose to me? I suppose you might like it if you don’t mind extra steps, or if you don’t wear makeup... To be such an expensive cleanser, I would expect it to outperform cheaper brands, and this one doesn’t. Purity by Philosophy performs nicely with my skin and removes even waterproof eye makeup, as does First Aid Beauty’s cleanser (which honestly is similar to La Mer’s foaming cleanser in look and feel). I will probably not repurchase for this reason.

I got a sample of this with a set I bought, and used it for a couple days and noticed my forehead lines which are usually there normally were less noticeable if not gone. I was shocked. I kept using it, and have also started using the CDLM too and have noticed my fine lines are way less noticeable than before. I wish this wasn't $365, and that they would make a smaller version so you wouldn't have to shell out that much for just this. This is the only serum I've used that I've noticed a significant difference in fine lines.
