LA MER THE CLEANSING GEL | HONEST REVIEW


Its been such a long time since i did an honest review. I really love writing this section on my blog. Always your most honest reviewer. 

La Mer is a luxury skincare brand in the beauty market. The price of their products easily retails from SGD100-600. The main ingredient in all of their products is the miracle broth - a fermented process of sea kelp known for speedy renewing of skin & healing properties. 

Here on my hand now is their Cleansing Gel 200ml, retails at SGD190. And as you can see, it is already empty. I pretty much use everything until the last bit. 

DOES IT WORK? DID MY SKIN TEXTURE IMPROVE?

Honestly, I want to be really real here. If you are thinking of just using this product for some magic to happen on your skin then it is not going to happen. My skin texture feels the same. Nothing much has really improved or did i see any significant change on my skin. 

The texture of this cleanser is soapy. It will slowly lathers on your skin which is good. I use a Foreo to cleanse my face. You can get a pretty good cleanse on your face with this product if you have no makeup on. If you have makeup on, it doesn't clean away your makeup effectively. I recommend using a makeup remover as first layer of cleaning before using this cleansing gel. 

My face feels tight after using this which means that the cleanser is not suitable for me. But to be fair, i haven't really found any cleanser that makes me skin feels moist after using. So give or take but i have to almost immediately slap on some lotion & moisturizer to hydrate my skin. 

Packaging wise - nice firm plastic bottle. I dropped it several times and still in good shape. lol. The silver coating wears off easily though which is something i won't expect because this is a very luxury brand so should have perfect quality. 

IS THIS WORTH THE MONEY?

To me, absolutely not. SGD 190 can buy me some really good cleansers. This hype is all about their secret ingredient and marketing strategies. But say if you are very wealthy, love to be pampered, then i wouldn't say no to give this a try. After all, it did really cleanse my face well. 


Have you tried using a La Mer product before? Would love to hear about them from you :) . 

Until then, i will see you guys again.
