Creme de La Mer The Renewal Oil #spon

 

To celebrate the launch of their first oil, (frankly, it's about time) La Mer asked me to put together my top tips for how to use this luscious newness.

What is it?
'A highly renewing new elixir. This dual-phase elixir blends bubbles with Miracle Broth™ and sea-sourced actives, unleashing a wave of activity to infuse skin with a look of youth.'

Basically - and finally from La Mer, a highly active serum/oil that can be used on face, body or hair.

Who is it for?
Everyone, but obviously you will see more benefits from this if you are 30-40+

What’s in it?
'What isn't in it?' is more appropriate.
meadowfoam seed oil, dimethicone, caprylic triglyceride, water, trisiloxane, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil, polydecene, hydrogenated polydecene, butylene glycol, propanediol, glycerin, algae extract, rapeseed seed oil, sunflower seed oil, sesame seed oil, eucalyptus leaf oil, camelina sativa seed oil, cranberry seed oil, olive fruit oil, hippophae rhamnoides oil, alfalfa seed powder, sunflower seedcake, sweet almond seed meal, sodium gluconate, copper gluconate, calcium gluconate, magnesium gluconate, zinc gluconate, tocopheryl succinate, niacin, sesame seed powder, laminaria ochroleuca extract, laminaria saccharina extract, hydrolyzed algin, sea salt, chlorella vulgaris extract, salicornia herbacea extract, st. pauls' wort extract, laminaria digitata extract, rosemary leaf extract, magnolia officinalis bark extract, yeast extract, crithmum maritimum extract, commiphora mukul resin extract, lime peel extract, molasses extract, sucrose, acetyl hexapeptide-8, acetyl glucosamine, caffeine, tocopheryl acetate, phenyl trimethicone, sodium chloride, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, alcohol denat, fragrance, hexyl cinnamal, linalool, amyl cinnamal, geraniol, limonene, citral, benzyl benzoate, coumarin, citronellol, bht, phenoxyethanol, yellow 5 (cl 19140), yellow 6 (ci 15985), <iln41590>

How do you use it?
A multitude of ways. 
Although it can be used on the body and in the hair, frankly, this is going on my face and staying there.
  • After cleansing and toning in the evening, apply a few drops of the Renewal Oil to your face, massaging in gently. Take the Serum Massage Tool and follow the angle of the chin front to back in a slow methodical fashion, moving up the face and finishing with the round end of the tool gently pressing out from the inner brow to the temple. The oil and the tool combined stimulate micro-circulation and help to reduce puffiness while you sleep.
  • After cleansing, apply the Intensive Revitalising Mask all over the face. Add a thin layer of the Renewal Oil on top, sealing in the mask and it’s nutrients. Go to sleep!
  • Add a couple of drops of the Renewal Oil to your morning moisturiser before you apply for a beautiful, golden sheen that lasts all day without ever looking oily.
  • When flying/travelling - add a layer of the Renewal Oil between your Concentrate and Soft Cream for enhanced protection and hydration. Renewal Oil will ‘seal in’ the moisture and help prevent the dehydration that inevitably follows long-haul flights/travel.

Where to use in your routine?
In the morning, on top of serum, under moisturiser. 
In the evening, either repeat the above or use on its own.

What's good about it?
This oil is loaded, loaded with actives. I’ve always been keen on ingredients in skincare that you can take as supplements, especially magnesium and zinc, because I know they have helped my skin in the past. Equally, anything sea-related is amazing for the skin, as I’ve discussed before here.
Putting all of this into one bottle is no small feat but La Mer have done it without making a product that is too sticky, or too fragranced, something that a lot of luxury brands fall into the trap of. Strong smell does not always equal high performance chaps.
The Renewal Oil is hydrolipidic, comprising of both water and oil, meaning it gives immediate relief to a dehydrated skin, while also being the perfect companion to an added moisturizer on top.

The Crème de La Mer Renewal Oil is £155.00 for 30 ml and is available from cremedelamer.co.uk and all La Mer stockists.

    2. Hi Caroline

      I've recently received a 10ml jar of Cult 51 which I've used the last few nights after cleansing. I've read some mixed reviews about it, have you any thoughts on the product?

  6. Would this compare to the illumine face oil from the Dr. Colbert line?

  7. This looks lush! Good, on-topic opportunity for me to ask a question that crosses my mind twice a day during my routine: If nothing cuts through oil, why put oil under moisturizer? I especially wonder this when I want to layer an oil with an oil-free hydrating mask, like Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, or using Sunday Riley Luna and pondering if any moisturizer I put on top is even going to get into my skin. (I usually end up mixing a couple of drops of oil in with the mask or moisturizer, but dying to know.) Thank you!

  8. Dear Caroline,
    How would this compare with Vintners Daughter oil ( can only afford one of them )

  9. You're killing me, Hirons. Just when I thought I didn't need another facial oil.

  10. If using an oil without silicones is it ok to use after a non silicone moisturiser in the evening? After cleaning etc I use a serum, eye cream, moisturiser then a facial oil to lock all in, I hope. Thank you

  11. A Luxury Facial oil now that is something I would like to try!

  13. Hi Caroline, have you done a review yet on Omorovicza products? I'm wondering how the La Mer oil compares to Omorovicza's miracle facial oil. Would love to hear your thoughts.

  14. I looooove adding this to the Treatment Lotion after a nice double cleanse. Hoping to score some of the cut mini bottles for a trip next month to actually use in-flight.

  16. Hello! Are you concerned about the number of ingredients? A lot of dermatologists recommend the rule "10 ingredients or less" for skincare. Thank you!

  19. Dear Caroline! I am a total fan of La Mer in terms of regenerating power ... Have never seen anything like it, especially the way it works on scars....BUT: I get clogged pores immediately ( after 1 time application)....No matter which cream type or serum of the La Mer range I have used... Admittedly I got dream- skin in between the clogged pores... Well, It has gotten better after I banished all products that contain silicone from my skincare ( hence exchanging La Mer with Sunday Riley) ... I have therefore looked forward to the release of the La Mer facial oil....thought it would be without silicones ... because I did not think one would need them in an oil... But apparently I was wrong.. .Dimethicone being on top of the ingredient list ...A great pity...In fact, having acneic skin I am positively scared to try the stuff...

  20. Its great that it can be used both for skin and hair. I want to know that is this oil natural and can be used both for oily and dry skin conditions?
