- La Mer
La Mer boasts not only a timeless reputation—one that’s synonymous with the upper crust of luxury skincare—but also the concrete science to back it up. Aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber is the brains behind the storied label, and its signature Miracle Broth™—a skin-nourishing formula powered by hand-harvested and fermented sea kelp. Our pick? The Moisturizing Soft Cream, a much lighter version of the label's ultra-rich Crème de la Mer (that’s made to achieve the same lifted look).
