La Mer Moisturising Cream

Special offer


Product information

If miracles are unique events that seem hard to explain, then surely the discovery of La Mer can be described as a miracle. Here is the Crème that will truly change the way you see yourself, the Crème that has inspired a devoted following.

The value of La Mer reflects the highest quality ingredients, the unique craftsmanship and the transformational benefits enjoyed by its many devotees. The outstanding properties of La Mer are the result of not only the individual ingredients but also the artisanal way in which they are sourced, specifically combined, meticulously formulated and then hand filled. This is the La Mer difference.

We source the highest quality of raw materials and stringently conduct the time-intensive and complex process needed to create La Mer. We use a form of sea kelp which is sustainably hand harvested helping to maintain its native ecosystem.

The kelp is also only harvested at specific times of the year when it is in its most nutrient rich state, once shipped overnight on dry ice to The Max Huber Research Labs, the sea kelp is combined with other key ingredients.

These ingredients then go through a lengthy 3-4 month bio fermentation process. In addition, a unique extract, The Lime Tea, derived from hand peeled limes and processed for 4 to 6 weeks, is incorporated into each Crème. Our scientists rigorously evaluate the activity of each batch of Miracle Broth™, and if our high standards are not attained, the batch is discarded and we start again.

Because of the intricate and artisanal process that goes into making each jar, which is still hand filled to this day, only small quantities of La Mer can be produced at a time.

La Mer’s transformational and efficacious results have inspired a global following. With use, skin appears smoother, lines and wrinkles are reduced in appearance and even the driest complexions are soothed on contact. Its benefits speak for themselves and continue to generate loyal devotees around the world.

Brand Story

Half a century ago, aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in a laboratory accident.

After twelve years and 6,000 experiments, he perfected the precious, nutrient-rich Miracle Broth,™ the heart of Crème de la Mer's profound powers of transformation.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for sensitive skin I use this cream in the morning, only a small amount is needed. It has made a remarkable difference. My skin is more even in tone, firmer, and hydrated. I shall purchase again. 17 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by It seems very rich cream Yes the cream seems nice but unfortunately wasn't good for my dry skin which after a week of using it my skin had a rush and beside that I thought it was to expensisive 31 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth it Great products and well worh the money - cream lasts ages as just need a little 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best product you will ever buy I was to say the least reluctant to buy this product. After having been given a sample to try I was hooked. This is the best product I have ever purchased and although expensive it does last a good six months. My skin has never felt so good . 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely cream I love this cream and this is the second one I have purchased. It is expensive but worth every penny. However, buying on line is not a good idea as you do not get the usual free trial samples of one of their other products You do get a small sample but this seems to be from any random cosmetic company. Very disappointing Will not buy the next one from John Lewis. 26 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The mother of all creams My wife has used this for quite a long time and likes it a lot 18 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable luxury An excellent way to treat yourself! A pot of Creme de la Mer lasts me on average 4 months so is good value for money and a twice-daily treat. My skin has improved since using it and feels softer to the touch immediately on application. It has a lovely smell too and I love the ritual of warming the cream in my hands before applying it. I've learned the value of good skin care thanks to Creme de la Mer. 13 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't believe the hype.. I thought I would treat myself to something special & I bought Creme de la Mer. I used the contents of this cream over many months and I was totally disappointed. It's an old-fashioned heavy duty moisturiser. It looks and smells like Nivea & Ponds and there's probably a good reason why. I wouldn't buy this product again. I've reverted to my old favourite and my skin looks better for it. 01 February 2014
