A skincare powerhouse that diminishes the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores, infusing skin with the look of youth.
Borne from La Mer’s heritage of healing, this transformational serum dramatically diminishes the look of lines and wrinkles and infuses skin with youthfulness.
A powerful anti-aging trio: a high concentrate of The Miracle Broth™, The Marine Peptide Ferment and The Regenerating Ferment™, infused with marine plant stem cells and colloidal gold, helps skin trigger this natural production of “youth proteins,” collagen and elastin. Together they work to help radically diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as pores, revealing a vibrant, smoother and firmer looking complexion.
In a day, skin looks rejuvenated, glowing with youthful radiance. Over time, skin appears seemingly ageless.
To release key ingredients, shake gently and sweep several drops of this silky, ultralight elixir over face and neck each morning and evening. For ultimate results, follow with Crème de la Mer.

La Mer Introduces
The Hydrating Facial
Dr. Max Huber’s legacy of healing and renewing the skin is celebrated once again with La Mer’s introduction of The Hydrating Facial. The ultimate in moisturization, this two-zoned mask delivers superior hydration through a luxurious, sensorial, spa-like experience to reawaken the appearance of youth. In minutes, dry complexions are renewed, visibly transforming the skin. Skin is left hydrated, nourished, smoothed and conditioned with a resilient healthy glow, ready to receive the benefits of Crème de la Mer.
Skin concerns such as dryness, fine lines and dark spots are all addressed in the
100% cotton, two-zoned mask that is saturated with the fast-acting formula.
La Mer’s Hydrating Facial contains a trio of transformative benefits that makes this new product so effective:
The Sea Moist Ferment, a special blend of dark green algae gathered from all over the world in countries such as Japan, Indonesia, Brittany and the US, infuses the skin with intense hydration.
Marine plant algae such as Ascophyllum Nodosum and Aparagopsis Armata help
to diminish visible signs of aging. Dark spots and discoloration begin to fade in appearance, revealing a clearer, more even complexion. The Hydrating Facial also contains cellular lipids and plant extracts derived from melon and avocado to
provide a smoother skin texture.
Ultra soft to the touch, the spun-lace cotton mask is embedded with tourmaline and Mariponic Ferments that energize and set molecules into motion. The Hydrating Facial mask drives the formula into the skin, boosting hydration.
When making The Hydrating Facial, a high energy inversion process is used to
blend the formula together creating a liquid crystal structure. This gives the formula the properties of both a solid and a liquid. As a solid, the formula suspends andprotects the ingredients while still on the mask. When applied to the skin, the formula has the properties of a liquid as it delivers activity to the skin.
This advanced formula saturates the plush mask for enhanced penetration to condition and soothe sensitivities. Skin becomes softer and looks smoother.
Apply upper zone mask on clean skin. Gently smooth and press into place.
Next, apply lower zone mask, gently smoothing and pressing into place, overlapping at the cheekbones. Leave on for 8 minutes. Gently remove and pat remaining treatment over face and neck, allowing skin to fully absorb the extraordinary benefits. Use morning or evening once a week and follow with Crème de la Mer.
The Hydrating Facial
Suggested Retail Price $250 for 6 applications
The Hydrating Facial will be available in October 2009 at select Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and www.lamer.com

I’m hooked on the ethereal, soft-focus finish of La Mer Treatment Powder Foundation, $90. Fittingly, its base ingredient is Airgel, a literally weightless material used by NASA.
To soften the edgiest makeup looks, Lancome’s Aaron De May cleverly borrows a stroke from Renaissance painters, highlighting faces with gold—on cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, Cupid’s bow, or center of eyelids (my personal fave). Best gilty pleasures: Lancôme Poudre Liberté Highlighting Powder, $40, Sensai The Lipstick by Kanebo, $55, and Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Gold Emulsion, $36.
Ouidad Double Detangler, $24, is designed to gently unfurl ringlets. But I found it also effortlessly rakes deep conditioner through my long straight hair, pre-swim, making it my new beach-bag staple.
Runway Dorothy-worthy ruby eyeshadow, sparkling up models’ lids at Prada.
Reality Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Red Iron mascara, $28, and palette, $58, serving up vibrant yet flattering crimson shades that most of us can pull off (seriously). The exception: pale blondes (you’ll want to avoid the albino bunny look).
THE BIG APPLES
My beauty crutch: heaps of blush. But fall’s high-drama eyes and shockingly bold lips demand a lighter touch. For a featherweight fix, Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tint, $9.99, serves up just the right dewy dose.
I have loved pretty much every La Mer product I’ve had the chance to try and the new La Mer Body Refiner is no exception. There is something instantly spa like when you see the trademark soft green color and great La Mer scent.
What is great about it? Well La Mer seems to have perfected the consistency, not too thick or thin it was easy to work into my skin and didn’t wash away before I was done. The buffing particles worked great on my skin and with no sharp edges it was a nice break from some of the overly coarse products out there. My skin felt amazing when I was done, on top of feeling fresh my legs and arms were as smooth as baby skin.
Ever since The Max Huber Research Labs began engineering their first body treatments, they have incorporated the most luxurious ingredients to care for skin all over the body. Now, they have poured a wealth of knowledge into the creation of La Mer’s latest innovation, The Body Refiner. True to La Mer’s heritage, this multi-faceted treatment utilizes precious ingredients—including 1.75 carats of pure diamond dust— to deliver a cushiony resurfacing treatment that both polishes and softens the skin.
Plush, creamy, and calming, The Body Refiner incorporates fermented acidic sea muds harvested from a natural marine source to detoxify and purify skin for a bright, healthy appearance. Their low pH level makes these muds extremely gentle and especially suitable for sensitive skin. This essential purification process clarifies the skin and helps to restore its smoothness.
Pure diamond powder and polished sea quartz act as physical exfoliants, as this precious treatment instantly lifts away dull cells, gently retexturizing skin to reveal a smooth and supple new surface. The Body Refiner’s cream base serves to cushion the skin and protect its moisture barrier.
“To create the most effective exfoliator on earth, we incorporated the hardest material on earth – diamonds. When diamonds are crushed and polished they provide an extremely thorough yet gentle exfoliation,” says Loretta Miraglia, Senior Vice President of Product Development and Innovation. “Each Body Refiner contains over one and a half carats of diamond dust to lavish the skin with extraordinary softness.”
As The Body Refiner is massaged into skin, La Mer’s piezoelectric (electrically-charged) minerals – tourmaline and sea quartz – convert the massage action into energy, helping to stimulate circulation and awaken skin. A new vitality appears to glow from within.
For best results, massage with circular motions until the large particles completely dissolve. Rinse well. Use once or twice a week followed by The Body Crème. Skin is left instantly smoother and brighter as its radiant fresh surface is revealed.
I’d probably be obsessed with it as well, but at $350 a bottle, I’ll never know!
“La Mer Concentrate is the most amazing thing that I’ve ever put on my face. It feels so soft – it makes my skin feel like a baby’s.” — Ashlee Simpson
Designed for fragile, post-trauma skin on the face and body, The Concentrate complements skin’s own natural healing process. Miraculously, the appearance of scarring resulting from surgery and burns is noticeably improved. Irritation and redness caused by chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser treatments are visibly diminished.
This revolutionary treatment infuses skin with an unprecedented concentration of the original Miracle Broth™ found in Crème de la Mer. Immediately, skin’s sensitivities and redness are soothed. La Mer’s exclusive Lime Tea helps protect skin from a wide range of external insults, giving it the ability to focus energy on repair. The most precious and effective marine and plant extracts work in synergy with the Miracle Broth™ for a wealth of extraordinary results. This exclusive blend helps damaged skin renew and rebuild its appearance. Special barrier repair ingredients act as lipid “cellular cement” to help strengthen vulnerable skin. The Miracle Broth™, Lime Tea, marine and plant extracts are suspended together within a breathable barrier to slowly and optimally deliver their vital energies.
Feelings of tight or taut skin, often associated with scars, are miraculously relieved, increasing skin’s flexibility. Suppleness and smoothness are greatly restored. The result is a fresh surface. Huber’s vision is renewed as skin’s appearance takes on a new life. La Mer’s scientists recommend using The Concentrate in tandem with Crème de la Mer to seal in its vital, skin-renewing benefits. Clinical studies have shown visible results after 8 weeks. For external use only. Do not use on fresh or open wounds.
I have never been a big fan of tinted moisturizers or sunscreens somehow they always feel so heavy on my skin and leave my face extra shiny. I have finally found a SPF tint worth my devotion, La Mer SPF 18 Fluid Tint is simply divine. I applied a little first thing in the morning and noticed how light it felt and how quickly it absorbed into my skin.
All day I noticed my skin kept the flawless coverage and also how it left my skin feeling amazing. You only need a tiny drop so a tube of the La Mer SPF 18 fluid tint will last you forever. This is the perfect product for hot summer days when your normal foundation will be too heavy.
Dr. Max Huber understood the power of light. Just as plants need sunlight to thrive, there are energies within the light spectrum necessary for our well-being. Utilizing this principle, The SPF 18 Fluid Tint captures beneficial light while diverting potentially damaging light. It brings a touch of color to the skin for a smooth, even finish.
Designed for daily use, this water-borne formula absorbs instantly into the skin to provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. A trio of natural and sea-derived ingredients uniquely benefit the skin. Gemstones absorb light energy, transforming it into beneficial green light to enhance anti-oxidant activity. Photonic spheres within The SPF 18 Fluid Tint redirect and diffuse light. Smart, light-reactive seaweeds impart natural humectant properties to bind moisture – preventing dehydration. Worn over Crème de la Mer, The SPF 18 Fluid Tint acts as a generator, actually boosting its efficacy.
