La Mer The Eye Concentrate Overview
Let’s face it. For most of us, La Mer skincare is either out of reach completely or at the very least a major splurge – I’m one of those people! Hubs once treated me to the crème de la mer face cream and I treasured it! it was the BEST face cream I’ve ever used… but just an FYI I don’t have problem skin so I can’t help but feel it was wasted on my skin.
However, when you have a mum like mine who has expensive taste and happy just to GIVE me her eye concentrate then I will happily accept with a smile on my face!!
So, just for a bit of background, Crème De La Mer was initially designed for burn victims to help with the scar tissue and problem acne skin. It was developed by Dr. Max Huber, a physicist, half a century ago, the famed Miracle Broth is the cornerstone of this very pricy line. Viewing the ocean, and more particularly sea kelp, as a miraculous resource for the nourishment needed to restore youth and beauty to the skin, Dr. Huber and his successors have created top of the line products for very discerning customers.
La Mer The Eye Concentrate is an award winning eye cream that’s been known to dramatically reduce the look of dark circles, smooth and tone the skin, thereby minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. The silver-tipped applicator goes on smooth and cool, soothing and waking up tired eyes and reducing puffiness. Hello, to all you tired moms out there like me this is supposed to help your appearance.
The La Mer The Eye Concentrate formula is built upon a triple concentration of Miracle Broth, which is a precisely formulated blend of ingredients like Eucalyptus, Alfalfa, Sunflower, and of course Dr. Huber’s precious Sea Kelp.
In addition to Miracle Broth, La Mer The Eye Concentrate has another unique ingredient. It’s Brazilian Malachite which gives skin the energy to renew itself, thereby reducing the appearance of dark circles.
Then of course there are a host of skin identicals, cell-communicating ingredients, hydrators, antioxidants, peptides, and minerals to round out this all-around healthy skin formula.
One of the special things about La Mer The Eye Concentrate is the silver-tipped applicator. It remains cool, and feels like a spa treatment every time you use it to apply the cream. The real purpose however, is to get your circulation going to reduce puffiness and dark circles.

Where to Buy
La Mer The Eye Concentrate is available at several high-end department store beauty counters. The benefit of going this route is that you get to try the tester so you have at least some idea of consistency and feel before you leap into a purchase. You may even be able to score a sample to take home. Online, you can get it through the same stores or at the Creme de la Mer website. The ½ oz jar will run you just about $200, sometimes a little over, sometimes a little under.
As skincare lover I think it’s always a good idea to try some of the expensive stuff if you ever get the chance. It’s a good way to see what’s out there, and in a lot of cases, it can reassure you that you’re not actually missing much by selectively choosing from your less expensive options. So, if you’ve got some extra cash, or even better, if you can find your way to a sample, we recommend La Mer The Eye Concentrate as something to try. Just make sure to use the applicator and keep the jar closed tightly so the active ingredients will stay active as long as you need them to.
I do recommend Crème De La Mer, and like I said I LOVED their face cream. This is their recommendation of products to use and why. Let me know if you have used Crème De La Mer before.
