‘Stellar shine-free skincare’
Not all skincare is created equal and in a sea of luxury skincare, La Mer continues to set the standard for advanced technology and demonstrable results. Let’s face it, skincare for men can sometimes be a difficult sell, but not with ‘The Moisturizing Matte Lotion’ as its mattifying effect makes it a winner for guys who are keen to appear shine-free for important days, such as a business meeting or first dates.
The brainchild of La Mer, Max Huber, decided to develop his own skincare brand in order to combat the appearance of burns he had experienced in a lab accident. Through discerning research, he discovered the wealth of incredibly effective ingredients found in the sea. There are now five different textures available in which one can purchase the legendary La Mer moisturiser, making it even more applicable to your skin type. Using ingredients from the sea in order to ensure a high level of hydration for the skin, this lotion is further enhanced with a unique mattifying technology. The combination of these two ground-breaking discoveries culminate in the Mattifying Mesh Network which diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, shine and pores.
In addition, the gel-like consistency slides onto the skin and ensures that the moisturiser feels weightless– perfect for a humid summer’s day! The fresh, slightly sweet scent adds a further freshness.
Our testers agreed that the light formula of this moisturising lotion is ideal for the current sunny climes and felt both refreshing and soothing. Once applied, our skin felt and looked healthier and plumper. Thanks la Mer..what’s not to love?!
Verdict: ‘Refreshing and mattifying, ideal for sunny, humid climes’
