Why Kim Raymond and La Mer ‘Sea’ Eye To Eye #LoveLaMer

Our third and last personality for the #LoveLaMer campaign is no stranger to the Malaysia Tatler and celebrity scenes. While La Mer is a crowd favourite for its prestige, luxury as well as effectiveness, Kim Raymond shares why she has an affinity for the brand and its products.

When one thinks of La Mer, a number of words and images come to mind but they all have something to do with the sea, water and hydration. When one asks Kim Raymond about her relationship with water, she bursts into a knowing grin and says, “I am an Aquarius, therefore I am naturally a water-bearer.” Well, it seems that she and La Mer seem to be a match made in heaven.

 

An itch for the beach

Kim also shares that she is absolutely passionate about beaches and islands, so much so that she and her husband, Keith Foo, try to visit a new beach at any given chance, especially during the holidays. “I would say I have a very strong pull towards islands, oceans and water. I’ve always planned to retire by the beach, actually!”

A hefty dose of vitamin sea

Her first experience with the brand transpired about 5 or 6 years ago, and initially, she thought she didn’t really need it when she was younger. However, this notion seems to have changed. “Now that I use it – as I think that my skin is different now – it becomes better with the product,” Kim shares, “It doesn’t feel too strong. Plus, I don’t usually use too many things on my face, but the most important thing to me is the moisturiser.”

 

The highly potent Miracle Broth™ is the heart of Crème de la Mer. A blend of sea kelp, calcium, magnesium, potassium, lecithin, iron, vitamins C, E and b12, plus oils of citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower go into this product. This concoction was perfected by La Mer’s founder, Dr Max Huber, after 12 years and nearly 6,000 experiments.

This formula has the power to moisturise, regenerate, sooth, smooth and enhance the radiance of skin. To use the extraordinary Crème de la Mer, warm the a smidge of the product between your fingers to active the Miracle Broth™, until it becomes translucent. Press gently onto cleansed face and neck in the morning and before bedtime. It is best paired with other La Mer products such as the The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum and The Eye Balm Intense.

It’s easy on the eczema

The doting mother of one, who is always looking flawless at events and soirees and especially on her Instagram page, confesses that she struggles with eczema – which she contains and controls with the use of La Mer products. “I do have eczema on my face, so I try to go with more natural products,” she says, “So far, La Mer has been very good to me.”

La Mer products, especially the Crème de la Mer, is known to help heal dryness in just three days, especially if one is prone to redness and eczema. Thanks to ingredients sourced from the sea – as mentioned earlier – most, if not all, eczema sufferers swear by La Mer, considering it to be the ‘holy grail’ of products after trying and testing so many others that were not effective.
