A good friend uses only Creme de la Mer, and she was kind enough to share some sample sizes from a "gift with purchase."  Personally, I hated it — much too thick, and it actually made me break out.  So, may depend on your skin (which is a little scary when you’re spending so much).

Do you know about the product reviews on MakeupAlley?  Usually a great way to get a range of people’s experiences with a product:  http://www.makeupalley.com

@mrsbee – just wondering, why did your derm advise against it?

Creme de La Mer actually has mineral oil, which is known to clog pores, as one of its ingredients.  If you have acne prone skin–proceed with caution.

I used to use it.  Not recommended unless you have dry skin.  They also make lotion that’s less expensive and better for normal skin (vs. Dry); but if you have oily or combination, I don’t recommend it.  

1 oz. can actually last you a long time since you don’t need to use much.  Just a dab, you put between two fingers, rub to warm, and pat on your skin!  I only used it on my temples, cheeks, and around the mouth where it felt dry against Toronto winter.  Stopped using when weather warmed up.  

I’m a product junkie, and I have to say, I didn’t think this was for my skin type.  I did not have a wow factor.  I do, however, love Mercier tinted moisturizer.  Can’t live w/o it!

My mom loves it, but it makes me itchy. Not very helpful, eh? :p
