How is everyone? My first pot of Creme De la Mer finally finished last night so I thought, review time!
So, let me start with the method of using the cream. You take a tiny bit, rub in with your fingertips to heat it up and release the ingredients and pat into your skin, not massage it in. When you put it on, even though you've used just a tiny bit, your skin does feel moisturised. The cream smells like Nivea, so its nice, but artificial.
When I first started using it, the first 2 weeks it gave the glow...I was so happy thinking JLO skin, here I come! Then, after 2 weeks of glowy skin, my skin got used to it and I saw no difference. It was like I may as well have been using Nivea on my skin. However, as I had paid a stupid amount on the cream...Well a stupid amount of vouchers...I was going to persist and not just leave a half used jar like I do with everything else.
I then added in Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair into my routine, so I would use the serum, then the Creme De La Mer. Now these as a combination have had a amazing effect on my skin. I tried using the serum on its own to see if it was just that, but it wasn't, it's the combination. The funny thing is, is that Creme De La Mer was recently bought by Estee Lauder to be part of their brand. Doubt its the reason they work so well together though haha!
Would I buy it again? No. It's far to pricey and doesn't really do much as a product alone. I'm sure if I used another night cream with the Advanced Repair I would have the same results, maybe better. So, I am now off to find a new night cream. If anyone has any good recommendations, then please do let me know. Unfortunately, I am now yet again on the quest for the JLO glow.
Hope this review helps, and now you're not in awe of the £100 cream that isn't all that....!!
