La Mer Radiant Serum is perhaps the ultimate luxury product in the La Mer cosmetics line. La Mer Cosmetics has been at the forefront of combining science with beauty and many are claiming that this new serum is the pinnacle of their achievement. While La Mer users have been raving about this product and asserting that it is in fact worth every penny, comments such as these must always be taken with a grain of salt. La Mer claims that the product will add brightness to one’s face and also balances skin tone while preventing future pigmentation changes. These are lofty assertions, so we will try this serum for one month to see if the facts back up what they say.
The first part of the evaluation will consist of determining whether or not the use of La Mer Radiant Serum leads to a brighter, healthier-looking complexion. In order to be consistent throughout the test, an application of the serum was applied once per day – in the morning – to a damp, clean face. While nothing was evident immediately after the first application, results were visible within a week. My face appeared “polished” and after the full thirty days, a definite improvement could be observed. My dull skin was dull no longer; the serum passes its first test!
La Mer Radiant Serum’s second test, which was conducted over the same thirty day period, was to observe whether or not the product was capable of balancing skin tone. Many individuals often buy separate products for each of the two tests we performed on the serum, so if it is able to do both at the same time, we will be ecstatic. After one month of use, darker areas that were mismatched on the face due to a summer tan had noticeably faded. While there was still some progress to be made, I am confident that with another month’s use of the serum the pigment inconsistencies will be fully corrected.
With the serum meeting the initial claims by La Mer, what, if any, are the negatives to this product? First and foremost, the $370 price tag may be hard for consumers to swallow. The one ounce of serum lasts quite a long time, so if viewed as an investment, the purchase is actually a good one. Another concern is the bottle; many manufacturers have recently begun putting one ounce cremes into bottles that appear to hold 3-4 ounces, as a way of mentally tricking the consumer into thinking he or she is getting more. If you keep in mind that you are getting one ounce and one ounce alone, this will not be a problem for you.
In conclusion, this serum works best for those who are between the ages of 20-45, as it accentuates younger skin by bringing out the natural beauty under your existing skin. If you fit in this category and have been considering an investment in a high-quality skin product, this just may be the right one for you. La Mer Radiant Serum is a holy grail for those seeking to brighten and liven up their faces.
