LA MER’S RESURFACING TREATMENT

The look-at-me glow. No downtime. No irritation.

DISCOVERED

There is a lengthy list of things that VG’s curators love about La Mer—rejuvenating formulas, sumptuous textures, total luxury—but the one that takes the proverbial cake might just be their unique ability to produce powerful, active formulas that are simultaneously gentle and hydrating (thank you, Miracle Broth). When we heard about a soon-to-launch triple-acid exfoliating treatment for daily use that clears pores and refines texture while giving skin a look-at-me glow sans irritation, we said, yes, please.

TESTED

Excited to try a truly gentle daily exfoliating tonic that encourages natural cell turnover without disrupting skin’s pH, we immediately fell for The Resurfacing Treatment’s elegant texture. Applied on a cotton pad or with the palms by pressing into the skin, the silky liquid rapidly went to work with a three-pronged exfoliation process that first smoothed skin and reduced excess sebum, then employed enzymes to stabilize and maintain balance, and finished with time-released spheres that penetrated deeply to continuously resurface and renew. After several days of morning and evening application without redness or sensitivity, and skin that was velvety soft— luminous, we’d say—we sent it to the Committee of Industry Experts for their official seal of approval.

“Great chemical exfoliator with alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, and poly-hydroxy acids. These all act in different ways to clean out pores and give the skin smoothness and luminosity.”
—DR. DAN BELKIN, Dermatologist

“I love an exfoliating toner, and this one is GREAT. It effectively resurfaces while still being gentle enough to use every night. Plus, it feels hydrating on the skin.”
—GRACE AHN, Makeup Artist

“The formula is well tolerated and it gives skin a great glow.”
—DR. MICHELLE HENRY, Dermatologist

APPROVED

With all of our skin authorities in unanimous agreement, La Mer’s The Resurfacing Treatment is officially VIOLET CODE APPROVED and has earned a place on THE SHELVES.
