Crème de la Mer The Moisturising Gel Cream

You may have already read my review of Crème de la Mer The Moisturizing Cream, which I referred to as being great for dry / normal skin types, so what about those of us who tend to be a little more oily? Well Crème de la Mer The Moisturizing Gel Cream is the answer. The company tends to ask the question, “What texture do you prefer?”, which is a good question, but if you’re not that aware of how your skin works or behaves, you could end up buying yourself the richer cream version and applying it onto incredibly oily skin for example, which probably won’t give you the effects you’re looking for to say the least.


So the The Moisturizing Gel Cream. It harnesses the powerful active ingredients as found in The Moisturizing Cream but added to an ultra-light gel / cream base. I cannot stress enough how much I love the feeling of this on my skin. Use the spatula and dispense around two-thirds the size of a five pence piece and apply it to your finger ends, then, sweep it across your skin. Don’t rub it in, just sweep and leave it to soak in, I promise you it will. It feels cooling, refreshing but importantly, hydrating. Remember, even if you’re more oily, you can still be massively dehydrated.

This is perfect for Acned and Acne prone skin, as it won’t  cause congestion because of its ultra-light texture whilst the powerful efficacy of The Miracle Broth’s formulation and skin regenerating properties will give you great results, fast. If you’ve suffered with Acne and are currently dealing with the scaring after effects, then this will also make a huge difference but consider looking at The Concentrate, recommended by Practitioners, Dermatologists and Surgeons alike.

In only two weeks, I’ve noticed a massive increase of my skin’s brightness. My nasty outbreak has stopped completely (I’m really not messing you around here, I mean completely) and the remaining red blemishes have disappeared. My skin looks dewy and feels incredible to the touch. As we all are, I’m always the harshest critic of my skin, looking at every pore, blemish, flake and mark but even I can accept there’s been a massive improvement.

I’ve been using this day and night after cleansing with The Cleansing Foam which has been in my cupboard for a few months that I’ve been meaning to use (review to follow soon). I have been using The Eye Balm Intense but other than that, that’s it, and obviously that’s only affecting my eye area. So considering all I’ve done in two weeks is wash my face (using the Clarisonic as exfoliation) and applying the same moisturiser day and night, the improvements are incredibly noticeable.

Price. I’ve ‘ummed’ and ‘ahhed’ about talking about the price and decided I will. Crème de la Mer The Moisturizing Gel Cream is £100 for 30ml / 1oz. Firstly, this has given me results I’ve not yet encountered from another brand’s moisturiser without having to use a combination of the serums, toners, astringents, masks and moisturisers. Secondly, you use the tiniest amount and after two weeks, you can barely see that I’ve touched it. A 30ml pot should last around 2/3 months, whereas with some moisturisers I’ve used and paid £40/50 for, they’ve lasted me half the time. Obviously there is cheaper stuff out there, but in the world of premium and luxury skincare, this is by far not the most expensive and delivers undeniable results.

If you fancy trying it out, you can pick it up from the department store of department stores, here at John Lewis.

That’s the thing! All I use both day and night is The Foaming Facial Wash, This, Eye Balm Intense and The Lip Balm. The amount saved is huge as they all last for an absolute eternity and I don’t need a serum for the time being. My skin has become amazingly low maintenance since using them.

Sounds like it’s done a fantastic job, although the price point does put me off a great deal. I’d love to give it a try though, especially if it can save money by replacing other products.
