When you think serious skin luxury, La Mer is sure to enter you mind after all it’s rumored that J Lo herself uses it on her entire body. It all began with Dr. Max Huber who spent 12 years and over 6000 formulations to find a crème to soothe the burns he suffered in an experiment as an aerospace physicist until he finally found one that dramatically changed the texture of his skin and poof! Crème de La Mer was born. The ‘miracle broth’ is the basis for the wildly popular crème, its key ingredient is sea kelp harvested off the coast of California twice a year, then it’s formulated in small batches and filled by hand.
For years I wanted to give it a try as my night crème, luckily they recently introduced the amazing gel crème formula perfect for younger skin that doesn’t need the intense hydration and won’t cause breakouts. La Mer (and I) realize this is a serious purchase $220 for a 2oz jar- which is why they have a generous sampling system, so you can try it out before making the commitment. I wake up feeling softer, line-free and just a little bit like a rock star
