Review - Creme De La Mer -

P.s Dont forget to enter my contest!

Hey Guys!

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....!!

Love ShameeraXxX


  1. This review has helped me saved money, for sure! I've always been tempted into buying Creme De Le Mer. So glad you've done a full review of it now. :)

    At the moment, I'm using Sarah Chapman's Overnight Facial Oil. It's made my skin look a lot more smoother and less bumpy, but I've only just started using it. But it costs just over £50! xx

  2. Happy to help! It was to be honest, a waste of money. To be honest, I wouldnt be suprised if it was just Nivea re-packaged!My friend who bought it too thought the exact same thing.
    Oh I've seen Sarah Chapman products on QVC, I might try that thanks :D xxx

  3. Haha, yeah it's so weird it smells like Nivea :/ Let me know if you buy it and how it works for you. Loves xx

  4. I will do :D Thanks for the recommendation xxx

  5. I am actually using creme de la mer at the moment! And pairing it with Advanced Night repair! I love this combination!! Although I have only been using it for a week...
    Everyone is commenting on my skin at the moment though! :D

  6. It is a great combination, but I really don't think it's the la mer! I think that its the Advanced Repair as its only after I introduced that did I see a difference, what do you think?
