In this review, the author had high hopes for La Mer Moisturizing Cream due to its high price tag and cult following. However, after trying it out, they found that it did not live up to their expectations.
One positive aspect of the cream was that after using it for some time, the author noticed some subtle improvements in their skin, such as smoother fine lines and a fresher appearance. They also appreciated the brand's money-back guarantee.
However, there were several negative aspects to the cream. The texture was extremely thick and difficult to apply, taking over two hours to dry and making it unsuitable for daytime use or under makeup. The scent was also unpleasant (in the reviewers opinion) with a heavy floral and baby powder smell. Additionally, the cream caused the author to break out in whiteheads.
The cream contains a mix of good and bad ingredients, including the beneficial Seaweed Extract but also potentially problematic Mineral Oil, Lime Extract, and Fragrance.
Overall, the author gave La Mer Moisturizing Cream a rating of 2 out of 5 stars and would not recommend it due to its thick texture, unpleasant scent, and potential for breakouts.
