I received a sample of this Soft Cream with an unrelated makeup purchase from Holt Renfrew. The sample lasted a few days, long enough to see results. I was hoping I would dislike this expensive cream. I hate the fact that I loved it. Makeup looked so much better, boosted radiance and luminosity ... and those are not words I normally throw around. I also use Retin A twice weekly and this cream really helped counter any redness, flakiness or irritation. I may even be able to up my Retin A dose to thrice weekly for even better results. After one week I purchased a half ounce jar. Believe the hype, please don't choose to hate it just because it is coveted and expensive. Try a sample and see for yourself. A baby .5 oz jar of this cream is the price of a facial and much more effective imo. Especially recommended for plus 60 ladies like me. Soft Cream is particularly nice under foundation. It is easy to apply and does not need to be warmed between the fingers.

I used to use the regular creme de la mer formula till this came out. I like it better because it's lighter but still has the same moisturizing qualities. Soooo pricey but it really makes my skin soft and radiant.

My skin in normal to dry with no skin issues, no acne, etc. I don't care for this when compared to the original CDLM. I got a sample of this with my full size CDLM. The soft creme is easier to spread. But to me it's greasier and takes longer to absorb. As far as moisturizing, I think both perform the same. But I prefer the original because the afterfeel is less greasy and it sinks in better. I don't think the soft creme is geared towards oily or clog prone skin. As for all La Mer products, the price is ridiculous. And you can't get the 15ml version, only the larger sizes. Not a fan of cream moisturizers, so I'm pretty picky and will absolutely stop using something if it doesn't completely fit.

I have a couple of generous samples of this and I'm pretty happy with it. I love the application of it - no warming first, just put it on your face :) Unlike the heavy duty original, you can wear makeup over this. My real test of it though is putting it on at night and waking up to see how well it performed on my little lines on either side of my mouth. The original takes them away (okay, maybe virtually) but so did this cream too (as well as the lotion and gel also.) I'm 59 yrs old and believe me I would NOT shell out this kind of money for mediocre results. I would buy this when my samples run out. I think its effective; the only thing I'm not sure of is do I like it better than the moisturizing lotion for the daytime. For night - especially through the winter, I'll stick to the original.

As a die-hard Creme de La Mer user, I was very excited by their newly-touted "lighter" version of their regular cream. My thinking was that it would be perfect for the hotter, summer months. However, I was really underwhelmed. It doesn't appear to moisturize very much. I feel like I need to reapply in a few hours. Even that wonderful La Mer smell is absent. I think I'll just stick to the original.

I have a sample of this and will write a real review (and add/subtract lippies as necessary) when I've used it longer. In the meantime, I contacted the company for the full ingredients list, which I was not able to find online, and here it is:INGREDIENTS: ALGAE (SEAWEED) EXTRACT  CYCLOPENTASILOXANE  PETROLATUM  GLYCERYL DISTEARATE  PHENYL TRIMETHICONE  BUTYLENE GLYCOL  HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL  CHOLESTEROL  BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA BUTTER)  STEARETH-10  DIMETHICONE  GLYCERYL STEARATE SE  POLYSILICONE-11  SESAMUM INDICUM (SESAME) SEED OIL  MEDICAGO SATIVA (ALFALFA) SEED POWDER  HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEEDCAKE  PRUNUS AMYGDALUS DULCIS (SWEET ALMOND) SEED MEAL  EUCALYPTUS GLOBULUS (EUCALYPTUS) LEAF OIL  SODIUM GLUCONATE  COPPER GLUCONATE  CALCIUM GLUCONATE  MAGNESIUM GLUCONATE  ZINC GLUCONATE  TOCOPHERYL SUCCINATE  NIACIN  SESAMUM INDICUM (SESAME) SEED POWDER  WATER\AQUA\EAU  CITRUS AURANTIFOLIA (LIME) PEEL EXTRACT  LAMINARIA DIGITATA EXTRACT  CRITHMUM MARITIMUM EXTRACT  SALICORNIA HERBACEA EXTRACT  PLANKTON EXTRACT  CHLORELLA VULGARIS EXTRACT  GLYCINE SOJA (SOYBEAN) SEED EXTRACT  GLYCERIN  CAFFEINE  SEA SALT\MARIS SAL\SEL MARIN  MICROCOCCUS LYSATE  DIETHYLHEXYL SUCCINATE  ADENOSINE PHOSPHATE  CREATINE  HYDROLYZED ALGIN  ISOCETYL STEAROYL STEARATE  CETYL ALCOHOL  SUCROSE  ACETYL HEXAPEPTIDE-8  GLUCOSE OXIDASE  POLYACRYLAMIDE  ACETYL CARNITINE HCL  GLUCOSE  CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE  C13-14 ISOPARAFFIN  TOCOPHERYL ACETATE  TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE  SODIUM PCA  GLYCOSAMINOGLYCANS  UREA  DISTEARYLDIMONIUM CHLORIDE  DIPALMITOYL HYDROXYPROLINE  SODIUM HYALURONATE  LAURETH-7  LECITHIN  TREHALOSE  POLYQUATERNIUM-51  LACTOPEROXIDASE  HYDROXYPROPYL CYCLODEXTRIN  CYANOCOBALAMIN  PENTYLENE GLYCOL  FRAGRANCE (PARFUM)  DISODIUM EDTA  BHT  CITRONELLOL  HYDROXYCITRONELLAL  GERANIOL  LINALOOL  LIMONENE  POTASSIUM SORBATE  PHENOXYETHANOL continued >>
