Product Review: La Mer Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream

I never thought that I would ever get to review or even put on a $315 face cream, but here I am ladies and gents and let me tell you, it feels luxurious. My skincare collection just went from a 7/10 to a 15/10 just because of this one product, hah!

The La Mer products have always been the type of skincare that I dreamed of owning, but last month I was reached out to for their Vancouver event and that’s how I got my hands on this product! Unfortunately I ended up having to go on a last minute work trip and missed the event, but a girlfriend of mine was able to snag my goodie bag anyway 😉

I’m so happy she did because otherwise I probably wouldn’t have been trying this cream for a few more years (aka when I could afford the luxury). Enough of my chatter though, let’s get into this review!

Texture & Feel

The first time that I applied this cream I put on way too much and quickly realized that a little goes a long way. The texture of the cream is silky smooth (no exaggeration here) and literally glides on and sinks into the skin. It’s also feather light which makes it great for daily wear under makeup.

In Combo with Makeup

I’ve only been wearing this cream in the daytime, both with and without makeup to really see how it works and benefits the skin. Without makeup it actually smooths the skins appearance and hydrates throughout the entire day. With makeup it creates an amazing canvas for BB cream, what I use daily, and doesn’t affect the oiliness of my skin. This is something that really impressed me, but I guess because it’s such a light gel cream, it works well with other products!

Benefits for the Skin

Since using this I have seen a change in my skin in terms of pores, glow and texture. The pores around and on my nose have visibly reduced in size creating a smoother appearance. Also, my skin feels much more hydrated and definitely looks like it, increasing my daily glow! 🙂

Thoughts on Price Point

I’m in no position to be spending $315 on a 2oz container of moisturizer but if I were I honestly think that this might be worth the money! In under a week I’ve already seen how well the cream works so I’m sure that using it long term would really show great results. Not to mention, the ingredients that are used in this product are fermented which is pretty impressive and I’m sure it adds to the price point.

Have you babes tried any of the La Mer products? I would love to know what your faves are if you have! Comment your thoughts below 🙂
