I Tried Every Single One of La Mer's Moisturisers–Here Are My Findings

I love moisturiser. Even when the skincare pendulum swung out of its favour and flocked to serums, I remained true. I just don't think any skincare ritual (not even the peeling of a sheet mask or roll of a derma-roller) can beat the satisfaction of slathering on a good blob of face cream and basking in that glowy-skinned glory. Like most of us, my skincare tastes range from drugstore finds to more luxe buys, but having tried my fair share of La Mer moisturiser samples over my beauty editor career, I can confirm the stuff is so damn good, some of the very best face cream out there—even if it does come with a sizable price tag.

I get it. Dropping over £100 on a pot of face cream is never going to be a spur-of-the-moment purchase, and such skincare investments require scrupulous research—especially considering La Mer offers a line up of five moisturiser formulas. You need to know where to put your money. This is where I come in: In the fanciest experiment I've implemented to date, I tried all five of the La Mer moisturisers on my combination skin in a bid to help us all properly decipher the differences between them and to help you choose the one that's right for your skin. Below are my findings.
