Quite often, a product that’s expensive comes along and we’re hesitant to open our wallets up to buy it. Well, the eye cream concentrate made by La Mer is one that’s an exception to this rule. Having known many people that praise it, I felt obligated to do research on the product and determine if it’s as good as they claim. Check out my La Mer Eye Cream review below and definitely read it before you decide to head to Sephora to scope it out. Let me kick things off by telling you a little bit about the product…
La Mer Eye Cream is a rejuvenating cream that specializes in reducing lines and wrinkles around your eyes. To determine if this is the right choice for you, it’s important to know the ingredients and how it affects the skin. It’s a great product, but it may not be the right product for your particular skin type. The company manufactures multiple skin care products. The company was founded by Dr. Max Huber who suffered burns during an experiment and developed skin cream from fermented sea kelp to treat his injuries. Check out the ingredients and how they affect your skin below to determine if it’s the best solution for you.
La Mer Eye Cream Concentrate Might Be The Solution
You can purchase the cream from the company’s website or at multiple retailers that deal in skin care products. It is more expensive than most creams of its kind on the market. If it works like it says it does, it’s definitely worth the price. It’s especially important to make sure that it is right for your skin because it’s a lot of money to waste if it’s not. The Eye Concentrate will run you $200 for .5 ounces. You might expect some type of miracle for that price, but it is not a quick and easy fix. The only quick solution is plastic surgery and the cream is not going to have that kind of noticeable effect right away. The cream provides a slow and steady change that is noticeable over time but will not give you miraculous results overnight. If you have the patience and diligence to continue the regimen without fail, you will be glad that you took the leap and spend the high price.
Manufacturing Company’s Opinion
Based on my research, the manufacturer claims that La Mer Concentration cream helps to reduce the presence of dark circles under your eyes. The product is a cream that contains hematite, which is supposedly a mineral that helps dissolve dark circles, fix any skin discolorations, and improve any uneven skin issues that may exist. The manufacturer also claims to soften the wrinkles and lines of the skin. The end result of using the product is essentially healthier looking skin around and under the eyes. The recommended application process is to follow the eye cream up with a quick application of Crème de la Mer. This is the moisturizer which will cost you about $170 per ounce. Most consumers feel that it’s well worth the cost though. I know, that’s close to $400 just for two skin care products. Definitely not cheap, I feel your pain!
The Key Ingredients
I’ll just list out the main ingredients first then shed some further light on them. Keep in mind that the ingredients listed are only the first few on the ingredients list. There are plenty of other ingredients should we prefer to
- Seaweed extract
There are key ingredients that are integral to the effectiveness of the product and should be mentioned to your physician before using it because of how potent they are. Like most of the company’s products, this contains seaweed extract also known as algae. This contains antioxidants that protect the skin from various toxins. The artemia extract helps to eliminate wrinkles and the Cyclopentasiloxane provides a barrier of protection for the skin and seals in moisture. This causes some puffiness that smooths out wrinkles, but this puffiness goes away.
Recommended Product Usage
It is recommended that you use the cream once in the morning and once in the evening, daily. This will help curb the effects of not getting enough sleep and other things that can cause imperfections around the eyes like bad eating habits. Be sure that your hands are clean and apply to the eye area with your fingertip. Do not use the cream on cuts or irritations because it will make it worse.
Pros and Cons of This “Eye Concentrate”
The natural ingredients that make the product effective are the same ingredients that could harm or irritate your skin if you are allergic to them. Therefore, it’s important to read all the ingredients, especially the ones above, and determine whether you can use them on sensitive areas of your skin. Even if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients, you should still test it by applying it to a small area of your skin to make sure there is no irritation before you apply it around your eyes. Another drawback to the product is its high price, so it’s best to do as much research as possible. Purchasing the product is an expensive way of testing it. If it ends up irritating your skin instead of helping it, you have an attractive and pleasant smelling but expensive paperweight.
The bottom line is that the La Mer Eye Concentrate is highly effective with natural ingredients, but those excellent ingredients make it an expensive product to use. They also require that you use caution because they may irritate your skin. This goes for any product that you use around sensitive areas like your eyes, especially when natural ingredients are involved. If you have the money to spend, and you are not allergic, this product comes highly recommended.
