5 Crème De La Mer Alternatives That Make Your Skin Look Younger & Cost A Fraction Of The Price

·4 min read

If you’re a fan of watching celeb skincare tutorials, or reading about what stars keep in their makeup bags, you probably are well-aware of A-lister’s go-to La Mer moisturizer—Kim Kardashian West and Chrissy Teigen are just a few of the many famous fans. While it’s tempting to want to splurge on luxury skincare and get a complexion like Chrissy’s, your wallet will most likely not be happy with you after dropping $350 on it.

It’s tricky because you want what’s best for your skin, but you also want to save money. However, in the wise words of Hannah Montana, you can get the best of both worlds thanks to more affordable alternatives that work just as well, according to reviewers.

So, what exactly makes this moisturizer so coveted and celeb-approved? The main ingredients in Crème De La Mer include seaweed extract, a concoction the brand calls “Miracle Broth,” and lime tea. It also has glycerin, panthenol, petrolatum, and lanolin, as well. This rich formula heals, protects, moisturizes, and most importantly, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Now that you know what the iconic Crème De La Mer is made of, you can understand why these five dupes totally fit the bill (hint: they pack a similar laundry list of soothing ingredients into each formula). Best of all, none of these alternatives cost more than $64.

Nivea All Purpose Creme

Perhaps one of the most surprising dupes is Nivea’s All Purpose Creme. Shoppers love this super thick goop because its ingredient list is most similar to that of its pricier counterpart. It’s also safe to apply it to your hands and body. With it, your skin will feel as smooth as butter thanks to provitamin B5, petrolatum, lanolin, glycerin, and panthenol.

“Was suggested to use this as a dupe of $300 Crème de la Mer. Works wonders!” wrote one reviewer. “Thought it would be too heavy for my skin on my face, as it seems so thick, but not at all.”

Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream

This face cream combines seaweed extract, collagen, elastin, and sodium hyaluronate to nourish, smooth, and hydrate your skin. Ideal for combination, oily, or sensitive skin types, you’ll wake up with a replenished and radiant complexion.

“La Mer is lovely and a nice splurge, but this stuff is really comparable, and a fraction of the cost. I will be a regular customer,” wrote one shopper. Other reviewers say that the thick formula helps them achieve “baby soft skin” without having to suffer through any breakouts.

CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream

This night cream boasts a ton of skin-benefitting ingredients like ceramides, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide. These elements work together to keep your natural skin barrier healthy, combat visible signs of aging, reduce redness, calm, and hydrate.

“If I got stranded on a desert island and could have one beauty product, this is IT. I noticed a difference in my skin after the first night,” wrote one shopper. “I have noticed diminished fine lines and a more youthful glow in my skin. I absolutely love this product. It works as good as La Mer.”

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream

The cult-favorite Magic Cream has its name for a reason—it’s an age-defying moisturizer that calls on hyaluronic acid, vitamins C and E, and a peptide complex to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The formula also brightens and hydrates the skin.

One shopper, who experienced hyperpigmentation, said, “After using this product overnight, I look 5 years younger. My dark spots had vanished, my skin looked tighter, my pores shrunk… This tops La Mer’s moisturizer by far.”
