The "Fabulousness" of LA MER Oil Absorbing Lotion

La Mer Oil Absorbing Lotion is an oil-free, oil-absorbing fast-penetrating formulation that hydrates, yet leaves a soft matte finish for hours—perfect for normal-to-oily and oily skins.

The Oil Absorbing Lotion contains the same amount of renowned Miracle Broth™ as the original Crème de la Mer. It possesses all the coveted benefits of the original Crème without compromising any of the extraordinary properties that make Crème de la Mer a skincare legend.

Just like the Crème, The Oil Absorbing Lotion is rich with sea kelp, vitamins and nutrients that undergo a highly intensive four-month bio-fermentation process. This is the exact process that preserves and empowers every ingredient of Crème de la Mer.

The Oil Absorbing Lotion is simply a lighter version of the original. The texture provides freedom of choice for those who desire Crème de la Mer in lotion form for times when a crème may be too rich.

Crème de la Mer's Miracle Broth™ is suspended within its extraordinary formula. To activate the broth and release its key ingredients, warm a small amount between your fingertips. As you pat onto clean, dry skin, you will instantly feel the soothing effects of the broth. Smooth over your face, neck, even under the fragile eye area. Apply day and night.

You've heard about Creme de la Mer before, so the brand itself isn't new to you. What may be new to you, though, is some of the history behind the "miracle". Crème de la Mer was conceived under extraordinary circumstances. Years ago, Dr. Max Huber, an aerospace physicist, suffered a horrific accident — a routine experiment exploded in his face — covering him with severe chemical burns. Neither science nor medicine offered sufficient promise of help, so Huber decided to help himself. Twelve years and 6,000 experiments later, he perfected the Crème that would help give skin a dramatically smoother appearance.

Crème de la Mer defies the laws of nature. At the heart of the Crème is a highly potent Miracle Broth(TM). There is nothing miraculous about its ingredients — sea kelp, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, lecithin, Vitamins C, E and B12, plus oils of citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower. For Huber, it wasn't the ingredients but the way those ingredients were distilled that made all the difference between a good moisturizer and a small miracle. No doubt, Huber understood the ancient science of fermentation. And, he discovered that an amazing thing transpired as these ingredients journeyed from individual components into a nutrient-rich Miracle Broth(TM) — a process that took 3–4 months to complete. The ingredients did indeed transform into a whole far greater than the sum of its parts. Vital energies were spontaneously released and through this slow bio-fermentation process, Crème de la Mer was born. Gradually, but perceptibly, the amazing happened. The skin’s appearance was miraculously improved, just as Huber hoped. It became softer, smoother, more supple.

REVIEW: La Mer Oil Absorbing Lotion is nothing short of fantastic. This is a gentle lotion that quickly lends itself to firming the face and giving a matte effect to skin. This is not going to dry skin, in fact it's quite nourishing and hydrating, but will bring a fresh non-oily appearance to skin within seconds of application. I notice some oil-free and matifying products cause my skin to "pull" a bit when I apply foundation or other products on top. You'll not find this problem with La Mer's Oil Absorbing Lotion. With its fresh scent and fabulous effects, you'll not feel an ounce of guilt about spending the money for it. Yes, it is pricey, yet a little goes a long way and the results will leave you smiling. This is not a product you'll spend the money for with little to no apparent visbile results. You'll see the results, and you'll certainly feel them. Great job, La Mer!

La Mer's Oil-Absorbing Lotion may be found at select Holt Renfrew stores, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, StrawberryNet and at La Mer's online site.


  1. I gotta get this! I have recently been experiencing oily skin and bought a Neutrogena oil controlling face wash, but after one wash my face is really dried out. This product sounds perfect! Thanks for the info =)

  2. I know ... I really questioned whether it would be worth the hype, but was very pleasantly surprised. It's a wonderful product, very hydrating. xo
