I only bought this product once out of curiosity. The price is over $200 when you include taxes. So I expected this product to be a miracle. It was far from it. You can probably make a cheap body lotion that would do more miracles than this. My skin was dry the entire month I used this and I noticed no visible difference. Some of the other La Mer products might be good, but I have not tried them so I do not know. This goes to show that just because a product is expensive, does not necessarily mean that it is better than the other products in the market. In addition, I will always emphasize that a good diet and exercise are some of the best things you can do for your skin.
