My Creme De La Mer Facial Experience

Monday, 12 May 2014



Hello Beauties! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and aren't too bummed about going back to work today! Today, I'm heading off to a Benefit Event in London for the launch of their new top secret product, so I'm still not sure what I'll be getting up to later! Anyway, On Saturday I was given the amazing opportunity to have a Creme De La Mer facial* at their counter in Selfridges, Oxford Street. 

When I arrived, I was sat down at a beautiful desk and given a skin consultation whilst sipping on some beautiful champagne, I was talked through each of the products in their range and what their ingredients did for your skin, and then was told which products would be recommended for my skin type. I learnt that Creme De La Mer was founded half a century ago, by aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber. Dr Huber received burns in the laboratory and began a personal quest to transform the look of his skin. He hand-harvested sea kelp and fermented it with simple, pure ingredients and after 12 years and 6,000 experiments, he perfected the precious, nutrient rich Miracle Broth, which is at the heart of Creme De La Mer's profound powers of transformation. 

After my skin consultation, I was taken to the treatment room which is actually in the middle of their counter surrounded by fish tanks and cloudy glass, and although it's in the middle of the beauty hall, it's actually quite relaxing. First, I had my make up removed and my skin cleansed using the 'The Cleansing Gel' which is a gently foaming gel for combination skin which draws out excess oil and pollutants, while still maintaining skins moisture. I loved the feel of this gel and it was perfect for my sensitive skin. Next, I had the 'Oil Absorbing Tonic' applied which helps to reduce excess oil which can lead to break outs and helps to revitalise this skin. This was really nice and cooling and left my skin feeling ever so fresh. 

Tahmina (the Creme De La Mer expert who served me) then applied 'The Radiant Serum' to illuminate my skin and refine the look of my skin tone, followed by 'The Concentrate' which is a deeply nourishing treatment that helps with the look of scarring and skin discolouration, and I have to say, my skin did look instantly better after this product was applied. I was then left with 'The Hydrating Facial' on my skin to work its magic, which is a sheet face mask. I'm never usually a fan of these face masks but this one was lovely and so relaxing. It left my skin feeling so hydrated and I'd really recommend it to any dry skin sufferers like I occasionally am. After my face mask was removed, Tahmina used 'The Eye Concentrate' which is targeted at dark circles. She applied this using a little metal ball which comes with the product. This helps to de-puff your eyes as the cooling massage it gives you helps with circulation and cools the eye area. My facial was then finished off with the application of the Oil Absorbing Lotion, which is a lovely light cream which helps to mattify your skin, whilst still keeping it hydrated. 

The whole experience was brilliant and I left feeling relaxed and feeling great about my skin. Above, is a picture of me with no make up on after my facial which really shows the effects of the Creme De La Mer products, not only on my skin but on my self confidence as well. My skin is something which I always try and hide due to years suffering with acne, but my skin looked and felt so amazing after my facial that there was no need for make up, and if that doesn't show how amazing these products are, I don't know what does. Today I left the house without make up for the first time in a couple of years and it felt great. If you really want to invest in your skin care, I really recommend a trip to the Creme De La Mer counter. 

Lots of Love,
