La Mer Hand Cream: The Best Dry Skin Solution for Hands & Feet

With fall coming, I am thinking about dry hands in the cold winter days. In the past I have avoided using hand lotion because my hands inevitably become oily and clammy because somehow the lotion is not being absorbed. After savvy sister got me into La Mer brand I decided to give the hand lotion a chance. Why not, it was a gift with purchase! Let me just say this is one of the best hand lotions I have applied on my hands and feet. My palms are no longer clammy after application; instead they are soft and hydrated. The only thing not so savvy is the retail price of $70 for a 3.4 ounce tube. I will still buy it because it is the only brand that won’t give me clammy hands. What is a savvy hand lotion that works well for you?

  1. I think that brand is so good, but it's too expensive to me. I normally use a lotion by Yves Rocher or Body Shop and it's ok.

  3. i should take better care of my hands
    i use hand cream everyday but i wash them so much, they dry quickly.

    hands are the first sign of aging as well.

  4. From what I've heard about La Mer, you can't go wrong with their products. I have never saved enough to afford them, though:)) I am usually using Dove hand cream or an older body lotion I never got to use.

  5. Hi there-I only know its brilliant as they have it in the harrods washrooms-totally gorgeous! I would use it money permitting!!

  6. I have been wanting to try this. I am not a lover of La Mer for my face. It didn't do much for me. But, I am intrigued by the hand cream and the lip balm.

    I use the Kiehls super dry skin hand creme ( that is not the real name--but it is the tub of goo for seriously dry skin and callouses). It is a miracle in a bottle.

  7. Recently, we were the recipients of many potions from a dr. that we know as she gets lots of creams, and the aquaphor is really nice. I will ask her if she has any word on LA MER - I painted for a client and was given the LA MER for my face and it is nice but has a strong smell.

  8. my problem is not usually with my hands it's my feet that get really dry so I usually pick up something specific for that!

  9. I am very happy that you left a comment on my blog so that I was able to trace it back to YOUR blog!

    It is FABULOUS!!!

    I will DEFINITELY be back here.

  10. Thanks for the recommend - I LOVE all kinds of lotions!

  11. i will have to ask for some for christmas, i do need a hand cream but thats a bit too expensive for me!!

  12. Oh, I aspire to La Mer. I plan on buying lots of it when I become a big-time hedge fund manager someday ;)

  13. i tried this hand lotion and fell in love! unfortunately, it's a bit expensive so i rely on my Bliss hand lotion that comes in a cute little blue bottle.

  14. I love La Mer! I haven't tried the hand cream, though. It sounds fabulous. Wish I could find a way to justify that price tag... *sigh* -Julia

  15. I might actually try Bliss lotion myself.... it helps to read comments doesn't it. ;P

    having said that.. if i could I will definitely try LA MER..

  16. Wow... you are making me dig in my non-Hermes Kelly bag... well, at least it is a Coach Kelly looking bag... anyway... ok... here it is... L'Occitane en Provence Creme Mains... very nice for the hands!
    Speaking of Provence I hope you will be joining me tomorrow for a glass of wine!
    Enjoy your weekend... Fifi


Love to hear your thought.....
