La Mer

We all put down big bucks for beauty in the long run, sometimes its worth the splurge and sometimes it isn't. I recently put down pretty big bucks in the name of flawless skin, and am loving the fruits of my sewing.

Even now, it is not entirely clear how Crème de la Mer works. For those schooled in logic, it is something of a jolt to the imagination. But facts are facts and certainly the proof can be seen on the faces of those who use it. In a short time, skin becomes softer, firmer, looks virtually creaseless. Aging lines and pores are noticeably less visible. Even the driest of complexions are healed. Sensitivities are soothed. And, of course, there are some who insist it has produced astonishing results—as Dr. Max Huber witnessed. No wonder many who have tried every cream available remain steadfast in their devotion to Crème de la Mer.

Today, Crème de la Mer's Miracle Broth™ is manufactured by the same slow, meticulous bio-fermentation process created by Dr. Max Huber. And because kelp has natural antimicrobial properties, only the tiniest amounts of preservatives are necessary to maintain its long shelf life. This extraordinary crème must be individually hand-filled in order to sustain its delicate balance.

Miracle Broth™ is suspended within its extraordinary formula. To activate the broth and release its key ingredients, warm a small amount between your fingertips. As you pat onto clean, dry skin, you will instantly feel the soothing effects of the broth. Smooth over your face, neck—even under the fragile eye area.

-La Mer

Le Mer was invented by Dr. Max Huber who is a burn victim due to his chemical experiments in his professional as a scientist. Through many years, Dr. Huber was looking for a miracle that would help soothe and restore his burned and dry skin. Finally after years of research, he came up with his miracle La Mer moisturizing cream infused with many incredible natural agents, it really is the best cure for dry skin and leaves wrinkles less noticable over time.

This summer, I had a pretty hard time getting over a huge dent that was left in my forehead from excessive sun exposure. No matter how much sun block I put on my forehead, the skin there became quite hard and dry...which developed a really deep wrinkle. I knew it would go away with time, but it was so hard to find a cream that would help heal it quickly, and I still have a tiny bit of its remnants on my forehead, but overall it's almost all gone. Le Mer really helped me get rid of that dry skin, and I learned to stay out the sun for such long exposures.

Along with La Mer I teamed it up with a Yves Rocher cream to help not use it since it is rather pricey. Both of these creams really soothed and healed my complexion. I really have no fear walking out of the house without an ounce of makeup on because I know my skin looks flawless. I've gotten a lot of compliments from my blog readers on my skin and asked questions to my secret, so here it is. La Mer moisturizing cream, eye cream, lip balm, Yves Rocher regenerating cream, and just great cleansing routine.

The La Mer cream is expensive - runs at around $240 and could climb into the thousands.

The eye cream is in the $150s.

The Yves Rocher cream is a lot less expensvie and can be found on their website. I think it's around $40.

It really is a small price to pay for a flawless complexion.

I use different products so that my skin is charged with different agents and cleansers and doesn't become immune to a certain wash or tonic I use. It works for me, but it may be hazradous and allow your skin to be prove to break outs if in fact you don't know what you are putting onto your face. It's all about knowing your body and knowing your skin type. It's such an important thing to know.



  1. Great post! Someday I will shell out the cash and make the investment :)

  2. I refuse to hear it!!! **hold ears** then again I already read it all. My home girl swears by it, and I didnt want the dent in my wallet so i always pretended it was in her head and hype! so.... no.................... :( it seems real lol

  3. Great review. I heard abour La Mer a long time ago and so many famous ones use it and love it. I have yet to try it. If it's worth that pretty penny for my dry skin I might give it a try.

  4. Thanks for the info. I always here tons of different things, so I never know what to believe. I like how you said that it depends on your skin, cause it really does. I also heard it works better on more mature skin, since when you're in your 20s your skin is still changing. I think I'll try it one of these days.


  5. I heard about the cream and I'd love to try it. Too bad it's so expensive though.
    However, I'll do my best to save some money for it. :) I bet it's worth it.

  6. nominatd u for an award !
    Check it out below:

  7. I looked into the la mer cream, it sounded so interesting i was so psyched but there's no way i can use it with mineral oil in its list of ingredients! i would be so pissed to pay 240 for that, mineral oil sets me back like 2 months from having a clear complexion and that's with the help of acne rosacea meds too! the best lotion for me was dove sensitive lotion but now that it's discontinued, my derm recommends Cerave.. Both lotions contain ceramides, which are pretty cool.

  8. Thanks for a wonderful post! It has been a great change of pace for me as i am always on the lookout for a whole new perspective on different subjects. Keep up with your hard work and dedication.

  9. Great post man! I always follow your blog because it is full of compelling information about various things. I like to read this post  because I met so many new facts about it actually. It's really great that I noticed this post.
