Hydrating Infusion by La Mer
I have been testing La Mer's Hydrating Infusion for close to a month. This is a treatment that pre-wets and prepares the skin for the benefits of a moisturizer. It is a serum-like texture that transforms into a watery fluid upon application. Once Hydrating Infusion is activated by the skin's pH and temperature, the ingredients are released to start hydration.
It is like a primer for your moisturizer. Instead of keeping your foundation in place, this primer preserves your moisturizer and jump starts the hydration process. The texture and science behind Hydrating Infusion is similar to Kanebo's Smoothing Water Make Up Base. Both represent a skin care trend that actually works.
I have been testing Hydrating Infusion with various serums and creams. Hydrating Infusion works well with the heavy duty creams like La Mer and Eve Lom's TLC Cream. It also works well with the feathery light creams like Chantecaille Biodynamic Lifting Oil Free Fluid. It applies wet and quickly dries to a matte finish. Moisturizers apply smoother. Skin looks hydrated longer. Flakes and dry patches are history. As someone who lives in Arctic Ohio, this skin cocktail is an answer to my prayers.
Smart skincare is pretty standard these days but this new innovation is more along the lines of an honor society or Mensa.
It retails for $95 and is available at your local La Mer counter.
