If you haven't heard of the miracle moisturizer Creme de la Mer, well then you need to read this! I've been trying to get my hands on a Creme de la Mer jar for quite some time now, but I'm just not willing to pay $300 something dollars for a face cream. Of course, if I was a millionaire I'd have no complains, but since I'm not…I'll keep rummaging till I find a cheaper version. So what is Creme de la Mer exactly?
The Miracle Cream: Creme de la Mer
Creme de la Mer is a very deep, moisturizing face cream that really works miracles. It was developed by a NASA scientist, Dr. Max Huber, who had some sort of experiment explode in his face. He was compelled to create a creme that would repair his face when nothing else worked. It was bought out by Estee Lauder in 1996. In fact, it turns out that they had a hard time recreating this cult classic. The Miracle Broth that is the secret of the Creme is very time consuming and difficult to make. The lotion is a fairly basic moisturizing lotion, but with the added ingredients of sea kelp (turned out it could only be harvested twice a year and then had to be processed for months), calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, lecithin, Vitamins C, E and B12, oils of citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower.
The Creme is a little hard to use since you have to place a small amount (about 1-2 peas) in the center of your palm and rub your hands together vigorously. The creme will liquify, eventually becoming a clear liquid which you apply to your face.
This is the ultimate moisturizer for dry skin, especially during the winter. Now I haven't tried this product myself, but some of my friends have and they can't stop talking about it. It leaves your complexion with a youthful, radiant glow that you won't be able to compare to anything else.
