La Mer - Gel De La Mer - the moisturizing gel cream!

Finally receieved this long waited skin care product!
Heard so much about it but only get to really try it on my face when I receieved last week. Feeling great & really well moitsurizing yet non oily! Love it!

This high-tech, ultralight edition of the original Crème de la Mer instantly refreshes and hydrates the skin, leaving a supremely soft finish. Its gel-like texture is ideal for warmer weather and times when a true cream just might be too rich.

At its heart is the nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™ created by Dr. Huber that has become renowned for its healing abilities. True to Huber's coveted formula, Crème de la Mer's exclusive Lime Tea is also utilized in its original concentration. Created through the time-intensive process of extraction, Lime Tea is an exceptionally powerful anti-oxidant. Helping protect against a wide range of external insults, it gives skin the ability to focus energy on repair.

Created with La Mer's proprietary sea kelp, a natural humectant, The Moisturizing Gel Cream deeply moisturizes while maintaining an airlight feel on the skin, encouraging it to look and feel renewed, hydrated and conditioned.

Andy I'm super sad leh. My complexion has been good since young but however since last year my right chin to cheeks area start to have break outs. Alot of small looking pimples with no "heads" and leaving alot of scars on my fair complexion. Super duper sad. :(

I tot of buying this gel cream too since it's more for asian countries. So is this the best moisturizer you have come across? In you own opinion, do you think it's worth the price? S$400 plus??

Super duper sad

Dear Winnie

Is best you go & let a skin doctor/Asethetican check what's wrong with your skin first? Best not to use any thing before you know the cause of your skin problem. Wish you all the best dear!

*ps* You can look for Dr Georgia Lee my skin doctor! She's very good & nice in person as well. I think she'll be able to help you! You can find her website at my blog link. :) Get well soon!

Everyone knows Dr Georgia. Are her services very expensive?

hi andy,

normally exfoliator when should it be apply?? after cleansing or after toner??

any exfoliator can recommand?

i bought this SKII facial treatment essence.

what i know is first is cleansing ,follow by toner, essence, moisturizer.

so what i do is morning , cleansing ,toner, essence, moisturizer ..then, i put my make up..
is that a right way?

if at night , i apply essence already, is it needed to put moisturizer??

andylee makeup artist from singapore said...

Hi Pink

Yes! You do need moisturizer at night as well.
As for exfoliator- it really depend on what brands? Best to check before you buy it. Most of them have it for different type of skin used & different way of using as well.

Hi Joey

So far I've only tried La mer-the eye concentrate which I found quite good. I think the price is about $200+.
For scars best to check with the skin doctors. Thanks

Winnie said...

I tried this gel cream le.!! It doesnt have the oily feeling like some otjer brands and I like it alot however...i feel it's over priced.

Will continue to apply and see if there will be any difference with my complexion. :)

Hi andy,

sorry! i feel this post is kinda random but i cant help myself..i have to ask an expert!! =) im pretty prone to clog whiteheads and stuff... but i was thinking of getting a really good foundation (2way cake type)..but of course..they say 2 way cakes are real bad for skin...they make you have clog pores..stuff like that true?? could you recommend me a particular foundation that provides a dewy smooth finish but will not give me problems like clog pores, whiteheads, pimples..because im really very fair..the usual foundation tends to turn out like a mask for me after it a yelllow mask!! sorry for the long text!!! thank you so much andy!!!

P.s do you happen to know of any pdts that you've tried that takes away all that whitehead..sorry im too naggyyy =)

andylee makeup artist from singapore said...

Hi Pearl

Regarding your request about clog pore-
There's no way if you've such problem & yet thinking of using any foundations that won't clog pore. In fact you should look into taking care of this problem first instead of hiding it with foundations. Maybe is best to check with a skin doctor first, there's this gel that i've tried prescripe by skin docotr- Diffirin that'll help to reduce white/black heads problem..

pearl said...

yeah..i'm aware of that too...i wished i dont have to put make up as well but my job requires me too =( so i thought probably..out of all the foundations...i could just probably find like one to put on..although i know its bad!!! Thanks for your advice too!!! =) yeah i know that gel..its diffirin adapalene gel yeah? will go to a doctor soon to get that..Thank you so so much =) have a good day ahead!!

Hi Andy,

Do u know where can i get the BB cream from (at singapore)? And which brand is good?


andylee makeup artist from singapore said...

Dear Miss Q

You can look for most Korean cosmetics brands! Most of them do carried BB cream. eg. The Face shop, Missha, Beauty Credits. They've it for different skin type so depend on what's yr skin type to choose from?

Shirley Ho said...

hi andy, i got combination and sensitive skin type, can i know which brand of skincare more suitable? Laniege (heard there's a mild sensitive range)? Neutrogena? Shiseido? i have been using Shiseido and sometimes switch to Neutrogena. thanks a lot!

andylee makeup artist from singapore said...

Hi Shirley

Shieseido's quite good but I've not tried Neutrogena so can't really advise you. The other brand will be Ipsa.

Shirley Ho said...

thanks andy.
i am thinking of using essence, any brand to recommend for my skin type? essence is use after toner and before moisturizer, rite? if i am not wrong, it is to boost the moisturizer? i no use essence before.

andylee makeup artist from singapore said...

Hi Shirley

I'm not sure what's your skin problem?(Sensitive skin can be many things!!!) Maybe you can try to go Shiseido or Ipsa counter to check your skin first? They've those skin analyzer that can help you check what's wrong on your skin.
