La Mer - the Miracle.

Remembering what La Mer Crème de la Mer was formulated for originally, I put it to the test when I got a pretty nasty burn trying to curl my daughters hair with a flat iron. My finger felt the heat and a blister appeared within the hour.

I went to my medicine cabinet to find something to help ease the pain and could not find what I was looking for. In fact, I really thought that I needed to search for something beyond my standard generic burn ointment, so onto google I went. As I was about to type in burn cream, I noticed my sample of Crème de la Mer sitting on my desk. I opened the jar and applied.

My burn was almost immediately soothed, the redness started to fade to pink and the swelling went down. Really - like right before my eyes. The next morning, my burn was barely visible. Two days out now, I can not see it, only feel a very tiny dryness, like a scab just fell off, but one never even formed.

Now, I am not telling you what this will and will not do to your face. I have not tested it enough on my face to see if I get a miracle happening around my fine lines and wrinkles. But this cream obviously contains some pretty miraculous properties to treat a burn like this, in such a fast and furious way. I also heed you not to take this as medical advice, only as a cream that worked a pretty thought provoking remedy on me.

I did remember that Crème de la Mer was originally formulated to heal scars, so I decided to check out the story again:

"Crème de la Mer was conceived under extraordinary circumstances. Years ago, Dr. Max Huber, an aerospace physicist, suffered a horrific accident — a routine experiment exploded in his face — covering him with severe chemical burns. Neither science nor medicine offered sufficient promise of help, so Huber decided to help himself. Twelve years and 6,000 experiments later, he perfected the Crème that would help give skin a dramatically smoother appearance."

Now, it worked for Dr. Huber, and it worked on my burn. Just saying, folks. There is something to this cream. I plan to really give my Crème de la Mer sample a thorough test out and will promise to report back how I feel it works on my face.
