Product Review: La Mer The Hand Treatment

I love all things La Mer. I love the smell, I love the story behind the miracle broth, and I'll admit, I am totally into its huge celeb following. Let's face it, famous faces can use whatever they please and La Mer consistently draws the A-list crowd. So when I discovered they had a hand cream, I was all over it like white on rice.

I'm not sure what it is with me and hand creams, but recently I've been writing a lot of reviews on different hand treatments in search of the crème de la crème. (Heh!) I'm not quite a connoisseur just yet, but I'm on my way.

Here's what I have to say about the La Mer The Hand Treatment ($70). I was pleased to find out that it definitely softens your hands, soothes any dryness or chapped skin—and not only does it smell like the crème, but the fragrance is even more potent. The texture is nice and silky and it spreads evenly and easily. It makes your skin look plump and hydrated and it's really only greasy for about one minute until it fully absorbs.

Having said all of that, you do need a good amount of product to coat your paws. And since it comes with only 3.5 ounces of product, I just wish the tube was bigger considering the hefty price. Have you ever tried the La Mer The Hand Treatment ? If so, what did you think of it?

I love La Mer too. I have the face cream, body cream and the eye cream (plus some other stuff, the refining facial is wonderful...but back to the creams), but I really wasn't that impressed with the hand cream. Like you mentioned it takes a lot and even then I don't think it's SO much better than some other brands that I would spend the money on it.

I am debating over getting my mom a La Mer face cream since I've read in several places that it's pretty darn good ;) However, for me, my new found discovery was the Soap & Glory Great Shakes Hand Cream..It has a nice smell..and does leave my hands soft. I also used Glysomed in the past, it's a green little creme bottle..I got it at CVS and was similar to the Neutrogena Hand Cream...

$70 is way too much, I use Desert Essence Organics Hand & Body Lotion in Bulgarian Lavender (their Vanilla Chia and Coconut are amazing too). They smell so good, are organic, 100% vegan, no wheat or gluten, doesn't contain Parabens, lauryl/laureth sulfates, petroleum-based ingredients or artificial colors or fragrances and only cost $5-$8 for 8 oz. :)

As much as I would love to buy this, I think $70 bucks is a bit much for hand cream. Regardless of what it does. One of my favorites, and I'm a hand cream lover, is CO Bigelow's Dr. Hiosous Quince hand lotion No. 0007. The smell is nice and fresh and it leaves my hands very soft. Try it!

Off-topic- Who won the La Mer cream giveaway? I never saw the winner being announced.

I liked it but was not crazy about it. I love love love Elizabeth Arden's 8 Hour hand cream. I test a lot of creams and this by far is one of the superior ones. You barely need to use any, it's not sticky, and your hands aren't left feeling slimy.

$70 is a bit much for me for my hands. I'll stick to my 5-10 stuff, that works great.

I had a friend buy this for me for Christmas last year and I can't live without it, I don't care about the $70.00 price tag, it makes my hands feel wonderful and is especially nice on your feet. I NEVER leave home without it, you can get small sample sizes for your purse, just check on ebay.

I love all things La Mer too!!! I don't mind splurging on the face cream, it's just amazing and it lasts a fairly long time. I would probably splurge on the eye cream too (although I haven't tried it yet...someday). I don't think I would ever spend this much on hand cream though. I use a Lemon hand cream that I buy at Target for about $5 or so...it smells like a lemon cookie and works great. I think I'll just stick to that :)

Meh, I wasn't really impressed- My mom loves it, though. The scent is nice, but it doesn't really blend well with the scent I usually wear. And let's face it, la mer really just isn't worth it. Sure, it's a "treat," but I can think of way better ways to spoil myself for $70 bucks (massage, anyone?) I prefer Neutrogena's "Norwegian Formula Hand Cream" when it is really cold and dry. But I normally just use their dry-touch sunblock on the backs of my hands (age spots? no thanks) and Burt's Bees Apricot Oil on my palms and cuticles- now that stuff smells fantastic (I also use it under lippie and on my legs.)
