Product Review: La Mer Body Cream

Talk about at-home spa treatments. This La Mer Body Cream is so unbelievably thick and creamy, the folks at La Mer HQ call it a "seaweed wrap in a jar." Lucky for me, I was sent a sample because $195 for body cream is holy outrageous, Batman!

The lotion comes packaged in a pale green celery jar and smells exactly like the face cream and the hand treatment. That's probably because it contains all kinds of ingredients from the sea along with four kinds of algae, omega 3, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Funny enough, it doesn't contain the company's most famous Miracle Broth, which I thought was their secret weapon.

I'll level with you: If this became your guilty pleasure, you'd need to take another mortgage out on your house, but for anyone who's got some cash to burn, I'd put this at the top of my list. It really is that fabulous. The cream comforts and seriously moisturizes dry, damaged skin. For everybody else who is looking for a less expensive option, check out my drugstore pick for body lotion.

lol i guess it sounded it, but i hate how people just slag something off when they've never even tried it. her comment was the classic "i cant afford this so ill just be negative about it so it sounds like im not bothered or jealous that i cant have it" get my drift..?

Yowza. No WAY am I paying $200 for body cream. I think La Mer is pretty overrated, because I think I get pretty fab results from stuff that's a mere fraction of the price (and the hype).

Wow you're so lucky to have received it for free! I've first read about La Mer's expensive cream in an article about celebs'secrets to have a pretty skin in a French magazine a few years ago where they said that Paris Hilton used it, I bet she doesn't have any troubles affording it! I wish I could too!

I love this body cream. It's a little on the ridiculously priced size but I did 9 years of competitive swimming and 3 of water polo growing up and my skin was always so dry and scaly even a couple of years after not being in a pool a whole lot, only swimming a couple times a week to stay in shape and this is some of the only stuff I don't have to reapply a few times throughout the day or that feels like there is a heavy layer of waxy or oily residue suffocating my skin.

ah, La Mer. So controversial. I think if I was to use a heavy cream over large areas I will stick to the original nivea creme because they are somewhat similar in texture and feel, and even smell.. but I suppose if you want to blow your money on a ritzy product, that is your prerogative :) although if someone handed me a sample jar of this I would use it for sure, dont get me wrong.

I love LaMer face cream and I will spend the $90 on it, because a jar of it lasts me FOREVER. But I won't spend $200 on a body lotion...I'd go through it in about a week. I'm sure it's fab, though.

La Mer is over-rated and over-priced.

Oh, mejor, what fantasy does it help you concoct? On what sort of fantastic voyage does it take you?
terryt18 terryt18 8 years
¡Ay, Dios mio! That is definitely outrageously priced. And I must confess, I haven't yet had the opportunity to smell anything from La Mer, much less rub it into my most sensitive of areas. Tell me, Bella, of what do La Mer creams smell?
