15 Best La Mer Products Actually Worth Your Money

The beauty industry is home to everything from affordable, science-backed serums to “miracle creams” and millennial-friendly clean formulas. But few newcomers rival the best La Mer products. The luxury skin-care brand’s offerings consistently top the wish lists of editors, celebs, and general skin-care enthusiasts alike.

Its limited selection and near-constant sold-out status give the brand a certain mystique, and La Mer’s origin story is as infamous as the price tags attached to its best-selling beauty products. Invented by aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber to treat burns he sustained after a lab accident, he supposedly stumbled upon the cure for everyday skin-care concerns like puffiness, irritation, and redness. That magic elixir is the brand’s proprietary “Miracle Broth” — a top-secret formula featuring naturally healing ingredients created through the fermentation process, such as sea kelp, plant extracts, vitamins, and minerals. What’s more, it’s gentle enough for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Now, every La Mer skin-care product is infused with La Mer’s Miracle Broth — and that hardworking combo of nutrients within it.

But with some prices starting in the three digits, it’s not every day you decide to add a little La Mer to cart. You want to know what’s actually good before swiping your credit card. So to answer one of the most frequently searched beauty questions of the Google era — “Is La Mer really worth your money?” — we had Glamour editors put some of the brand’s hero products to the test. Read on for our honest reviews of the best La Mer products.
