La Mer Moisturizing Lotion: Custom Tint for a Light Coverage Day


In additional to using Crème de La Mer for night time, I started using moisturizing lotion by La Mer during day time. The crème is too rich for me twice daily. Crème de La Mer is also great for air travel since it's super dry inside the cabin. During these long flights, my skin is kept hydrated and supple. Rest of the time, the lotion is just right to hydrate my skin, keeping my face soft, supple and oil free. It's not as rich as the cream, which can become too oily and rich for younger skin.

I have also been making my own custom tint with La Mer lotion as well, which can't be done with the crème (too heavy). There are days I just want to have light coverage without applying full foundation. Being really particular I don't want to buy just anything, I now blend a dab of foundation with the lotion, a gal can adjust the amount according to her need. It's great anytime I want lighter coverage!

I tried La Mer oil absorbing lotion as well and my skin dried up like over-baked bread. I freaked out and went to La Mer counter demanding an answer. Apparently, oil absorbing lotions are appropriate for people with really oily skin, not just oily T-zone. So savvy gals, do you have a favorite tinted moisturizer?

  2. ha, your La Mer counter story cracks me up, did you get a refund?
    I would do this in the summer with Weleda's children's sunscreen, worked really well.

  7. Koko, not everything by la mer is great, but lotion and cream are fab. foundation and foam cleanser are good too but you really need to test for yourself. before spending a lot of money on these products, always ask for samples to try first.

  8. I like Dr. Haushka translucent foundation. I think it is more like a tinted moisturizer. I didn't really care for Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer.

    I got a sample of the La Mer lotion. I loved it but I just can't fork out the money for it. Do you love their foundation?
