Expensive, thick and not for me

User Reviews

Strongest points
Would have worked better on different skin I believe
Weakest points
Price, thickness/richness, pot is old fashioned
Summary
I tried some of this and I have to say I was not impressed whatsoever.
I have heard rave reviews about this product so I had to try it for myself.
I found the cream to have a nice scent, however the cream itself was far too rich for my skin and I broke out.
One good thing, you can use it sparingly as a little does go a long way, however this in mind, the price is still so high.
I found the pot is really old fashioned and reminds me of a well known brand of perfume.
Maybe I have the wrong skin type for this product as it is rare I heard a bad review.
Might try again in 10 years time.

My Miracle Product!

User Reviews

Strongest points
Ingredients of the "Miracle Broth". The years and experience that perfected the Creme. Full range of miracle products that work in synergy. Can be used under the fragile eye area. Skin becomes, softer, smother and firmer after use. Pores are noticeably less visible. Soothes sensitive and even very dry skin.
Weakest points
Price - although it can be bought cheaper on other websites, also you may not need a separate eye cream and a tiny amount is all that you need to use each time.
The fact you need to make sure your skin is completely dry before you apply - skin is sometimes still moist after cleansing and the Creme will not melt into the skin at all if this is the case.
You have to warm the creme between your fingertips before applying which takes a little extra time, although I find this quite a relaxing ritual before bed!
Summary
Reading the other lady's review it just shows how different we all are and how different each persons skin needs are. This is the beauty of a website like this that we can read a wide range of different peoples reviews on each product tested.
I swear by this product. I have been using it for about 10 years now. I am 45 and the picture that you see is 18months old. I haven't as yet had to have any "work' done! Having said that, I believe it is true that this Creme is not for everyone. My skin was being admired at the Pharmaceutical company I used to work for and I told them that I was convinced that it was all down to Creme de la Mer. My colleague bought the Creme and subsequently told everyone she hated it and it wasn't worth the money!!! Even though this Creme is £100 per 30ml I have put 5 stars for cost effectiveness because I really believe it is worth the money.
My advice before using this product would be to remember it is probably totally different to any moisturisers you have used before in it's texture and the way you apply it. When your skin is clean and dry you warm the creme between your fingers first and then literally press into the skin. I find that the creme really does melt into my skin when I have taken the time and trouble to do this. If my skin is at all moist from cleansing the Creme just slips over my skin and does not melt in.
It is also worth mentioning that Creme de la Mer have launched a new gentler blend called La Mer’s Moisturizing Soft Cream, a revolutionary new formula that delivers the profound benefits of Crème de la Mer in a softer and smoother texture. All key ingredients are now infused by way of Moisturizing Spheres, an advanced absorption technology that allows for irritant-free penetration.
The cream contains the sea kelp-infused Miracle Broth, to sooth redness and replenish lost moisture, and the brand's exclusive Lime Tea Extract, which is steeped in power anti-oxidant properties to neutralize free radicals, enabling the skin to focus on renewal and repair.

Just Too Rich!!

User Reviews

Strongest points
A rich product that absorbs well. Light floral scent. Extremely nourishing and hydrating. Attractive simple packaging with spatula applicator
Weakest points
Ridiculously expensive. Does not absorb fully and caused breakouts
Summary
I was very sad that this product failed for me after reading the hype about its amazing ingredients and fantastic benefits. It is strange cream that needs warming between the fingers during application. It has an oil base and whilst my skin appeared to absorb it at first, it left a definite greasiness on my skin. I could certainly tell that it was deep moisturisation but after a few days I began to break out. I am glad that I was only using a tester as had I have purchased this product at its full phenominal price tag I would have been very distressed. I feel that this product is just too nourishing and would be better suited as body cream (its ingredients that is). Sadly unimpressed
