Is La Mer Moisturizing Cream Worth It?
Updated: Dec 27, 2021
What Is Special About Creme de la Mer?
If you haven't heard of or tried La Mer brand skincare products (wait... what, you haven't?!) then, it's worth getting to know it and try it, even with samples or travel size, which is exactly how I got addicted to the brand. With excellent reviews and an established brand, women invested in skincare seem to agree that La Mer Moisturizing Cream is a wonderful product. It is known to calm irritation and redness and help dry skin concerns. I have rosacea and it paled my pink. I used it daily by layering it last over my serums as part of my skincare routine and my skin was firmer, looked more lifted, and I was noticeably more supple and less irritated. And that's good because aging skin, like mine, always wants a second chance!
This is the cream that put the brand on the global map. The La Mer brand has an interesting start. When aerospace physicist, Dr. Max Huber, fell victim to a lab accident during one of his experiments, he incurred severe facial burns. Devastated by a lack of remedy for his scars, he delved into a mission to find a way of making his scars disappear and give his face a second chance. He dedicated 12 years to discovery and experiments and marveled at the healing powers of the sea. He found the answer in the pristine waters of a nutrient-rich kelp forest in the Pacific.

Yes! To Answer the Question. While it's a pricey product, there is something special about it's formulation. According to thezoereport.com, the official list of dermatology favorites includes La Mer. “La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream is the moisturizer of all moisturizers,” Dr. Aanand Geria, a dermatologist with Geria Dermatology in New Jersey."
However, please note that if you have very sensitive skin, the fragrance may be a bit much for you, yet most love it.
