La Mer 'The Oil Absorbing Lotion' Oil-Free Lotion
I reside in the very humid South. I have searched for oil control products that actually work for years. I was thrilled to discover this. And I was even more thrilled at the fact that it works and does what it says. I use the La Mer cleanser, oil absorbing tonic, brightening infusion and the oil absorbing lotion topped off with a light dusting of the La Mer translucent powder. I have never worn foundation and with this my face is more flawless than I could have ever imagined. I admit I was surprised at its smaller size as compared to other La Mer products. However the reason for this is because you simply do not need more than one pump of this lotion for your entire face. If you use more than that, you are wasting it. I expect this product to last 4-5 months. The condition of your skin improves with the La Mer regimen-pores reduce in size, brighter complexion etc and as this happens you use less and less product because continuing the La Mer regimen maintains your flawless skin after it helps you achieve it. I use the soft creme at night and the oil absorbing lotion for day. I have provided a photo for size reference that I hope helps others as they consider this product.
After having a bad reaction to a tinted moisturizer, I desperately ran to my nearest Nordstroms cosmetic section to look for something to soothe my irritated skin. My mother has been a devout La Mer user for years, and has perfect skin. So I decided to give the La Mer counter a try. The helpful SA (who had amazing skin!) let me try two different types of moisturizer, but steered me toward this. It has been so beneficial, and now know what the hype is about. Will be buying this from Nordstroms again!
I love La Mer! And now I can wear it under my make-up, not just at night. My skin is oily, so the regular moisturizer is too much during the day, but the oil free-lotion is perfect--it helps keep my skin matte and my make-up stays on. Great product!
I read all the amazing reviews for this product and even though I live in Alaska I have extremely oily skin but dry sports as well. I have tried so many oil control products and was a bit hesitant at the price. Less then two weeks ago I purchased it. It does leave my skin matte finished for more the half the day but still have slight oil in my t-zone areas. The dry areas on my skin got worse. I would say this product is more for humid climates. I cannot justify only using this for our 3 months of summer, so I will be returning this product.
