La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum

February 1, 2017

I will get back to Spring 2017 makeup collections soon, but there’s something that I’ve just been bursting to tell you about and it has to be done now.  As I had shared a week ago [here], I’ve been on a skincare diet for the good part of last year due to my acne, but inwardly I’ve been itching to slather myself with some luxurious products.  It is a delicate balance between giving my skin all the hydrating/lifting/plumping it needs, and keeping acne from flaring up all over again.  When this bottle of La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum arrived last month, I first approached it cautiously, but within days was completely won over…and now I can’t live without it!

La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum

The new La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum is so much more than just another moisturizing serum.  It promises to penetrate deep within the skin’s surface, and immerse the cells in a proprietary blend of sea-sourced actives.  Apart from the mainstay Miracle Broth, La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum also features 2 new ferments:

Another popular La Mer ingredient – Lime Tea Concentrate – is also present in The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum.  This is a powerful blend of antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental aggressors that cause early onset of skin aging.  A new nano-encapsulation technology enables the ingredients to be broken down into tiny micro-droplets for faster and better absorption.

La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum comes in the classic marine green glass bottle and metallic silver cap.  A convenient pump dispenses a small dose of product to prevent wastage, and allows even for half pumps.  I usually take 1.5 to 2 full pumps for my face and neck.  The product is a light mint green emulsion that is absorbed very quickly, and leaves my skin feeling instantly refreshed and hydrated.

Going back to my skincare diet again, my skin was feeling somewhat parched from the anti-acne blemish treatments I was applying, and the moment I tried on The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum it was as if my skin sighed in relief.  A minimalist basic moisturizer may have kept my acne at bay, but it didn’t do anything else.  So it was immediately noticeable when my skin got plumper, more lifted, and radiant!

The other day I passed by an aquarium with my son, and he immediately pointed out a particular goldfish and squealed, “Look mummy!  It’s got WOBBLY JELLY CHEEKS!!”  *lmao*  Seriously, I laughed so hard and for so long, people may have thought I was deranged.  If you’ve seen my son (over Stories from time to time) you may know that he has some rather cute baby cheeks of his own, which I absolutely love and will miss kissing terribly when he grows up.  So whilst I am unlikely to regain any wobbly baby jelly cheeks of my own anytime soon, I am thankful to have La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum to keep my skin plumped and youthful looking!

La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum retails for SGD330 for 30ml, and is available at all La Mer counters in Singapore now.

  1. I have seen this one released here, have to yet pop by the counter and check out. I love the eye counter part of this green bottle, as soon as I apply the eye serum, I can feel that around my eye it gets plumper. Excited about the face one now. Thanks for the review.

      Did La Mer not send you samples, Sara? This one is really quite a nice serum… not just a basic hydrating serum, but it really feels soothing and I even skip a moisturizer sometimes after this. The eye serum is gold, I LOVE it too!

    Ah another positive review!! I’m chanting to myself “I shall not be tempted to use my angpow money”. HAHAH!

  3. Wobbly Jelly Cheeks- haha awww how cute is that! 🙂 This serum sounds lovely! I have yet to try anything from La Mer, although I do have to say I’m very tempted to try Creme de la Mer, but not sure how I feel about the jar packing. Love the packing of this serum though! x

      Hahaha… he really says the cutest things sometimes. I wished i can record them all! Instead, i shall share those nuggets here when they happen. The creme de La Mer is great, but if you are concerned about the jar, try the new soft lotion that comes in a pump bottle. It feels as good as the original, and is easier on acne-prone skin imho.

    Linda you are officially one of my biggest enablers now! Thank you for such a detailed and thorough review. While I don’t consider myself a die hard La Mer fan, I do tremendously enjoy their eye concentrate and their soft fluid foundation, both of which I use almost daily. I’m always tempted to experience their products, so will definitely be picking this serum up for a test drive. Thank you for sharing this review!

      We are skincare twins, so I definitely think you will enjoy this one! If you love their eye concentrate, you should also try their eye serum… it’s my favorite (currently torn between that and the La Prairie).
