Did you know that LA MER’s famous moisturizer Crème de la Mer comes in five different textures? Let’s discuss why it’s very popular in the first place and let me tell you why I am so addicted to it.
Originally developed by scientist Max Huber to treat burns sustained after a lab accident, LA MER’s unique blend of transformative biofermented sea kelp and other pure ingredients, the famous Miracle Broth™, has seen the moisturizer achieve cult beauty status. The formulation is now found across the brand’s skincare range to target and transform specific areas.
All creams come with the famous Miracle Broth™ and a few other ingredients that make the consistency to be different. See below please to find out what is the difference between those five different textures?
Crème de la Mer – Ideal for drier skin.
Benefits: Heals dryness with deep moisture.
Texture: Ultra-rich cream to be warmed up between fingers before application.
Look: Natural, healthy, radiant.
Personal take: My all-time favorite, part of my daily beauty ritual! I cannot live without it all year around. It’s formulated to alleviate the natural effects of aging by smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. The skin appears immediately softer and firmer. You can do so much with this cream and I use it not only on my face, but also on a lot of different parts of my body as the elbows, and the knees. An amazing makeup trick I learnt from Mary Phillips is the following: after applying foundation, apply a pea-size amount of The Moisturizing Cream with The Powder Brush all over the face for an instant, hydrated, creamy glow. You can also use this application trick to refresh the glow of your makeup during the day.
The Moisturizing Soft Cream – Ideal for combination / drier skin.
Benefits: Deeply hydrates and comforts.
Texture: Ultra-soft cream.
Look: Natural, healthy, radiant.
Personal take: I use The Moisturizing Soft Cream preferably in summer, especially during the day. It absorbs quickly and is a great base for your make-up application.
The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream – Ideal for combination / oilier skin.
Benefits: Calms, cools and replenishes moisture.
Texture: Lightweight gel.
Look: Fresh, healthy, soothed.
Personal take: As I have very dry skin, this texture is not for me, but if you tend to have oilier skin, you will adore The Mosturizing Cool Gel Cream. Store this lightweight in the fridge – a pure treat during the warmer summer months.
The Moisturizing Soft Lotion – Ideal for combination skin.
Benefits: Quickly absorbing, lastingmoisture.
Texture: Lightweight lotion.
Look: Natural, healthy, balanced.
Personal take: With the legendary Miracle Broth™ at its core, this lotion is lightweight and fast-absorbing to deeply penetrate beneath the surface, creating a healthy glow. This is a texture I also like to use to change a my daily routine from time to time.
The Moisturizing Matte Lotion – Ideal for oilier skin.
Benefits: Controls shine and diminishes pores.
Texture: Ultra-lightweight texture.
Look: Fresh, healthy, matte.
Personal take: Those with oily skin will know the hunt for the right moisturizer is a serious one and this lotion is perfect for controlling shine. My fiancé loves to use it as it keeps the hydration levels steady throughout the day while keeping the skin matte.
