La Mer has been a household and incredibly renown name in skin care for as long as I can remember. It is safe to say that my mother has been using La Mer products for at least the last 10 years and the Creme De La Mer for just as long. In fact she taught me when I was little to wash my face every night along with her and we would use the La Mer Cleansing Gel, two pumps — I remember it said on the bottle and I thought it was basically a crime if you were to use three or four. I think I thought maybe the bottle would explode or something if I didn’t use it properly. Skincare can truly become a religion and should be a very serious practice that we all take up in an effort to have beautiful, clean skin and of course to age gracefully. E X T R A warning, but I also used to wear some of my mother’s Creme De La Mer usually put on in the morning with her and before I would go to school. I would always complain that it made my skin look too oily and so we switched the regime from morning to night.
The skincare lords at La Mer have heard the cries of Oily women who don’t want to make the matters worse and also the cries of women who aren’t fond of that just moisturized (aka oily) glow. They have created a true paradox in beauty with their new Moisturizing Matte Lotion. Wait….what? Isn’t that an oxymoron? Moisturizing – Matte? Well yes, the lords at La Mer have somehow figured out the unthinkable and for all you skeptics out there let me tell you about it. I swear on Chanel that this baby really is shockingly matte! I myself was surprised when I tried it for the first time that as I rubbed in the moisturizer it was soft and matte looking, it even diminished the appearance of any oiliness that I already had on my face!
Now let’s breakdown the magical science talk about The Moisturizing Matte Lotion, shall we? The lotion uses groundbreaking technology to deliver a healing hydration from the sea but, with a soft matte finish. IN order to achieve this harmony in benefits La Mer has used innovative capsule technology and powerful sea sourced ingredients. I think I am getting the picture but let’s read on. La Mer Moisture Spheres drive hydration deep into the skin while the Mattifying Mesh Network controls shine for a fresh, refined and balanced complexion. The product uses all the transformative powers of La Mer’s magical and legendary Miracle Broth in an unexpectedly fresh, matte finish to help soften away age, shine and pores for a rainfed and balanced look. WOW OKAY, UHM . . . how could I not be in, honestly!?
As I have used this for about the last week or so It has truly become a part of my beauty regimen. If I am not looking to wear a lot of makeup one day or even if I am going bare skin, I have been using The Moisturizing Matte Lotion as a base. Whether I use the moisturizer alone or with concealer under the eyes and on any dark spots, this moisturizer helps for a great, fresh and very healthy natural beauty look.
