the moisturizing soft cream

The lightweight whipped moisturizer that rejuvenates and soothes skin.

Written By JAYME CYK


Crème de la Mer has long been touted for its age-defying ingredients, otherwise known as Miracle Broth (a secret blend that includes elements like hand-harvested kelp and semiprecious stones). But the famed moisturizer needed a much-deserved companion with a lighter texture. In 2012, the Moisturizing Soft Cream was revealed to rave reviews for its ability to soothe, heal, and erase redness. Infused with the brand’s signature Miracle Broth, this whipped cream delivers the same radiance as its richer counterpart.


“The Creme de la Mer is great, but can be a bit heavy, so the Soft Cream is great for everyday use. It’s also excellent under makeup.”—Georgie Eisdell, makeup artist

“I love the finish of La Mer’s Soft Cream. It has all the same benefits of La Mer’s original cream, but is a little lighter. I like to use this product under makeup or mix it with The Renewal Oil for an extra dose of moisture.”—Kayleen McAdams, makeup artist

“This is a great alternative if you don’t want as heavy of a moisturizer. I also love using the Soft Cream when I am doing makeup. It gives the perfect amount of moisture without making the face too oily for makeup.”—Patrick Ta, makeup artist
