La Mer Review

I'm sure many of you have heard about the miracle of la Mer. La Mer means the Sea in English; and sea kelp is what constitutes most of la Mer's miracle broth. This is no typical sea kelp: it can be harvested only twice a year. For the miracle broth, la Mer's sea kelp is combined with other natural vitamin and mineral rich ingredients, and then painstakingly processed for months with special bio-fermentation process that includes using energy in the form of light and sound waves. Next time someone says that they can get all the ingredients of la Mer for less than $10, tell them to look up the specifics of la Mer's ingredients/how it's collected and processed, and then try getting ingredients of exact same quality! Yes, even so, it still won't cost as much as la Mer products for obvious reasons. But my point here is, that you can't get a bag of sea kelp at the market and think that it equals to sea kelp used by la Mer. Without the miracle broth, creme de la Mer is merely a very moisture rich cream.

I used creme de la Mer years ago after someone recommended it to me during my efforts of battling adult acne. My skin was at it's worst condition due to the strong acne treatment products I used daily for nearly 6 months. And last year, after nearly 5 years, I went back to using la Mer again. This time, along with creme de la Mer, I also tried the Treatment Lotion, the Concentrate, and the Eye Concentrate. Watch my You Tube review below to find out about my experience with these products as well as my overall thought on la Mer.

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance Lifting Creme Makeup

Re-Nutriv is Estee Lauder's ultimate luxury line targeted more towards mature skin. With use of Multi-patened Contour Lifting Technologies and precious micro-fine gems, this line promises to provide intense hydration, 'lifting,' as well as array of anti-aging benefits. 

Estee Lauder released Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance Liftng Creme Makeup with SPF 15 PA++ (as well as the liquid foundation version) in Fall of 2014. This one is different from Estee Lauder Ultimate Radiance Makeup, same idea but better. I've been wanting to try a 'serum foundation' which seems to be gaining popularity lately. The idea of getting anti-aging serum benefits from a foundation is definitely intriguing. For me, it was a toss-up between YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation and this Estee Lauder one; they both promise anti-aging serum benefits and 'lifting.' I decided to go with Estee Lauder because I like the idea of extra moisturization of cream foundation for winter.
