Before I started blogging, my skincare routine was pretty minimal and I never realised how important a good skincare routine is in order for your makeup to look good. I mention it quite often, but one of the best parts of blogging for me is trying new brands and products that I’d perhaps never try if it wasn’t for my blog. Creme De La Mer is such a luxurious skincare brand, and until now I’ve never tried any of their products but I was excited when I was given the opportunity to try the iconic Creme De La Mer Moisturizing Cream 15ml £60 as I’ve heard such amazing things about it.
Creme De La Mer’s story is really quite interesting where half a century a go, Dr Max Huber suffered burns in a laboratory accident, and neither medicine or science offered him the results he wanted in repairing his skin so he began his quest to find something that would transform the look of his skin. 6000 experiments and twelve years later, Dr Huber perfected the nutrient rich Miracle Broth which is the heart of Creme De La Mer’s profound powers of transformation.
Crème de la Mer’s profound powers of transformation are derived from potent, highly active ingredients like nutrient-rich algae, protective antioxidant extracts and semi-precious stones. The Creme De La Mer Moisturizing Cream has won many awards since it launch, and it boasts a pretty impressive description;
“Born from the sea, the legendary Crème de la Mer has the power to transform the look of skin. In a short time, skin appears firmer, the look of lines, wrinkles and pores appear less visible, skin looks virtually ageless. Even the driest complexions appear renewed and rejuvenated. With the nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™, the heart of Crème de la Mer’s profound powers of transformation, skin is immersed in moisture, skin appears soothed and radiant.”
The Creme De La Mer Moisturizing Cream is without a doubt, the richest and most luxurious moisturiser I’ve ever tried. The consistency of the cream is very thick and dense, almost as if it has a whipped texture which feels incredible as you massage it into your skin. Due to how very rich the cream is, you don’t need a lot as a little goes a long way which is a relief as it’s such a pricey product.
I really love the packaging with the cream being contained within a white glass jar with a screw lid. Once you unscrew the lid, the cream seems to sit in a solid lump within the jar which I’ve never seen before in a facial moisturiser but it’s just so thick. Creme De La Mer recommend warming up the cream between your fingers until it becomes translucent and then press it onto the skin, which again is nothing like anything I’ve experienced before.
Whenever I apply the Moisturizing Cream, it instantly nourishes and softens my skin, and my dry patches have become almost non-existant since I started using the cream which breaks my heart a little as it’s such an investment product but no other product has made such a considerable improvement to my skin in such a short time.
When I use the cream, it leaves my skin feeling as if I’ve applied an hydrating overnight moisturiser as it’s so intensively moisturised and I love using it at night before bed as I am guaranteed to wake up to beautifully soft, moisturised and plumped skin. I can’t sit here and say you “need” to buy this moisturiser, as it is so pricey but I really, really recommend heading to a Creme De La Mer counter to try it as you’ll fall in love the minute you touch it for yourself; it’s incredible.
