For the first time in my life I have bought a face cream for over $200 but I absolutely love it - Le Metier de Beaute's Replenishing Daily Solution Cream. 2012 was hard on my skin - don't know why. Could be stress, hormones or just life! I was on a dermatologist-recommended skin care routine so now that it has stabilized, I went on a hunt for a rich moisturizing day cream. I was determined to find the perfect cream so I went to many makeup counters and tried many, many creams and came home with many, many, many samples as I have learnt that its best to try a cream at least for a week before buying it especially if you have sensitive skin (like me). After trying creams from quite a few well known brands like Cle de Peau, Le Mer, Lancome, Kiehls, and Chantecaille and a few not so well-known brands too, I settled on the one from Le Metier de Beaute. This cream is truly heaven in a jar and trust me nobody is paying me to write this review!!!! Just after a week, my skin felt amazing and after two weeks, it felt even more amazing.
The Replenishing Daily Solution cream with SPF 30 is a lightweight cream with vitamin E, aloe, sodium hyaluronate and sodium pca. It goes on very easily and absorbs quickly, you can skip sunscreen as it contains a broad spectrum SPF. It is made of yummy smelling and deeply hydrating oils like cucumber (rich source of vitamin C), avocado, hazelnut, and jojoba combined with shea butter. It is also paraben-free by the way, a major plus as many luxury skincare products are still made with the evil ingredient.
So in case you are in the market for an expensive face cream - I highly recommend it!
