My experience with La Mer The Oil Absorbing Lotion began in December last year when I first start using it in combination with Oil Absorbing Tonic (review here).
These two products should win the Oscar for the best couple of the year for beauty products.
You can read all about the ingredients contained in this lotion and what I’ve experienced when I first used it, here in my preview.
What makes it my favorite face lotion is that it’s 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 (like mine). If you are using it along with the Oil Absorbing Tonic (200ml for $60.00) you will forget about an oily complexion in no time.
I’ve been struggling with sebum excess for years and although I’ve tried lighter creams that promised to keep my oiliness under control I could never find the right combination for my complexion.
Just to let you know, The Oil Absorbing Lotion is a lighter version of Creme de la Mer which I’ve also enjoyed using, so you will find the in this lotion the same ingredients that are contained in Creme de la Mer.
I have to admit I like the lighter version better, because the texture is lighter, non-greasy, smoother and faster absorbed by my skin. As La Mer says ” the texture provides freedom of choice for those who desire Creme de la Mer in lotion form for times when a creme may be too rich”.
