Price per ounce: $190
While many people believe that La Mer is the most expensive moisturizer, it’s really just the second most expensive dermatologist-recommended product on this list—Although, at $380 for two ounces, that’s not really a welcome thing. What is, though? The results-oriented formula is truly worth the hype. Crème De La Mer is a concentrated moisturizer, ideal for extremely dry skin types.
Dr Henry said: “Created with the brand’s exclusive Miracle Broth formula, La Mer cream uses a blend of eucalyptus, citrus oils, seaweed and sunflower. She explains that while seaweed is a natural exfoliant rich in fatty acids, anti-inflammatory, eucalyptus and sunflower are known for their antioxidant properties and Vitamin E-rich formula. Together These ingredients ensure that dry skin is not only fully moisturized but also deeply soothed and smooth.
Because this moisturizer is much thicker, Dr. Henry says some people just like to apply it at night. She adds: “The recommended way to use La Mer is to spread moisturizer between your fingertips and dab over the face and neck area until fully absorbed. This “La Mer Massage” method will get you the most bang for your buck of $380.
Now, if you’re like me and want to discover magic or La Mer despite not having dry skin, you’re in luck! La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream ($380) is much lighter and blends evenly and easily into skin. In short, divine, especially for combination and normal skin.
