I did not want to like this based on price alone It seems crazy. It kind of feels like a gateway drug to the lofty prices of the La Mer universe but if it gets results I guess I cannot argue much. I have tried SKII treatment essence and MIssha FTE and neither wowed me. I gave the Missha FTE a huge bottle and months to make me love it. This "lotion" however is much richer in texture and once the generous samples I was able to coax out of the La Mer associate were used up. Which took over a month maybe and it was just a few tiny bottles. I was dismayed that I was definitely going to have to buy the full size. On the upside, the bottle will last ages if you apply it correctly so I suppose it is actually a somewhat? "fair" price for what you get since its huge. The product does have a definite scent but It is not what I would call overpowering and falls in line with other La Mer products and definitely goes away quickly. Its silky texture makes application easy and it sinks in leaving skin feeling smooth and ready for more serums and moisturizing goodness. I do not have what I would call very sensitive skin so I cannot speak to it being good for those that do. I would like to say it is worth the price but it is so high I just won’t. I will say however that as of now it is something I would not go without by choice, price be damned.

It's a great first step. Absorbs fast and is very hydrating. Lasts a very long time.

I would not recommend a product that is as highly priced as LM TTL. It would be highly unethical. But if you happen to have the financial means to spurge out on a cosmetic product, then this should be it.

It has a very nice not-too-watery consistency, with a bit of body that makes it easier to apply. (Unlike the other Essences and Treatment Lotions.) I also find that it does hydrate the skin and settles into a natural glow. (I don't believe that the hydration will last the whole day but you will definitely notice that your moisturizer or/and serum will "last longer".

It is an identical product to the LM Hydrating Infusion (that is discontinued) but with a bit more added body.

I have used LM TTL since 2014 April and also tested (a full bottle of) Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion and Biotherm Life Plankton Essence.
Although I liked all the three products, I prefer the LM TTL.

La Mer foundations and products never break me out (knock on wood) even though I still have tempermental skin, which clogs easily, sometimes dry and flaky, sometimes really oily in the T zone. Go figure...
So I tried a small 5ml eBay sample, which lasted for 8 weeks.
I did a split face test: La Mer on one half, and my usual (Cerave) on the other half for a trial of 8 weeks.
Split face test results:
Good news, this moisturizes effectively (this is the summer with lots of humidity, so I can't tell yet how it will be in the winter), without clogging, spreads easily, like a watery gel but isn't runny. Soaks into the skin, but leaves it mat, not greasy at all.
No flaking on the La Mer side, but lots of flaking on the nose, forehead and chin on the Cerave side (I have to use anti rosacea and anti acne products, and they can be drying - so I'm not blaming Cerave, it's just that it's not moisturizing enough).
After 8 weeks, blackheads are hardly noticeable (BONUS this I did NOT expect)- it's almost as if it calmed down my skin so that oil production was regulated.
Only bad news, pricy**** Aieeeee... Looking around for a cheaper dupe- if I can't find any, will gladly fork out the $$$$

EDIT November 27 2015 Winter dryness kicking in mercilessly...
The combo that seems to be working is La Mer Treatment Lotion thinly applied all over first, then the Lotion mixed in with a small amount (one or two pinheads) of Finacea over the T zone where the rosacea/acne is most prominent. Then for the winter only, Cerave oil-free cream on top of that.

Now it is the fall, it's drier and colder and the La Mer treatment lotion alone is a bit too light, not enough moisturizing by itself when combined with anti rosacea/acne treatment. But with this combo working, I was happy to shell out the $$$ for the full size bottle, since nothing less expensive worked. Sigh....

My trial with the La Mer treatment concentrate did not work out in the long run did not work out this winter (?lavender too strong for sensitive skin), see my edited review.

I bought this after trying it in the store. I have issues spending this much money on something if it isn't outrageously amazing...in Canada it's only available at Holt Renfew and they do not return products easily. It is pretty cool and different from other toners, it lasted almost a whole year with 2x day use. At this stage in my life though I can't justify spending this much for something that doesn't make a dramatic difference in my regimen, so I will not repurchase. It's not bad, it's good just it's not outstanding.

Love it. Definitely makes a difference when used before la mer moisturizer.

I am known as a "skin care guru" amongst my friends, and, seriously, I am very obsessed with skincare. I'm also an RN and work in clinical research. So I am no push-over for products but demand they produce results.
I first received this as a sample and wasn't impressed by its watery consistency. I didn't use it much at all.
However, on the prompting of the ladies at the La MER counter, who seriously believe this to be one of the line's best products, I took this out and started using it.
Once I gave it a fair shot, I must say, I fell in love. Love, love. I soon bought a bottle. I use just a few drops, so it will last a long while. It really packs a lot of moisture into that thin, liquids gel-like substance (thanks to hyaluronic acid). It's also, like other La MER products, packed with so many great things, most especially, the "ferment."
I use it directly after washing, then top with a serum or two. I often can then skip moisturizer, it truly works that well (and I have dry skin, thanks to retin A). However, I live in a warm climate, and love the Crene De la MER in the cold weather.
My first bottle will last me quite some time, I can tell, but I will definitely replace it when it is gone. I really like La MER but this is my favorite (along with the eye cream).
It's also a great deal (for La MER, anyway), due to how long it lasts, and how well it works.

I love this non oily lotion. It smoothed and softened my skin after using for a week. Will repurchase it.
