Close

With so many beauty products on the market to try, sometimes you just want the tried and true classics.  Sometimes you just want the product that everyone has tried and everyone still loves, years after it has launched.  As self-professed product junkies, we understand the need to try something new and different will never fade away, but there are just some products that should and will always be a mainstay in every woman's makeup bag.  So we've compiled a Top 10 Beauty Classics You Must Own List.   Each week we will highlight a product on the list, giving you all the details on the history, how it came to be, why it's great, and why women and celebs alike swear by it.  Let the countdown begin!

Our #10 Beauty Classic:  Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream

This product comes in at 10 on our list due to its price point, but consider it an investment or a serious splurge.  Ranging from $150 for 1 oz., to $1,900 for 16.5 ounces., Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream is legendary.  This little jar instantly refreshes and hydrates the skin, leaving a supremely soft finish.  Skin is deeply hydrated, renewed and conditioned.  Aging lines and pores are significantly less visible.  Skin becomes softer, firmer, and virtually creaseless.  And sensitivities are calmed.  Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream has received many awards over the years.  Among its many accolades are the Neiman Marcus Beauty Award, Neiman Marcus Beauty Hall of Fame Award, and the Elle Magazine "Hall of Fame Moisturizer" Award.

Estée Lauder, the makers of this 'miracle' cream, claim that its formula was discovered in the 1970s by NASA scientist, Dr. Max Huber.  An aerospace physicist, Huber was badly injured when a routine experiment to develop rocket fuel went wrong and an explosion left him with severe burns on his hands and face.  Over a 12-year period, he conducted thousands of experiments until he managed - according to the crème de la mer website - to 'perfect the art of bio-fermentation (a natural chemical process that breaks down a plant, for example, and allows chemists to make more concentrated versions of the active ingredients it contains), blending a mix of sea kelp with an array of vitamins and minerals, oils of citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower. 

Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream has been endorsed by many professional makeup artists and has many celebrity fans, including Jennifer Garner, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Christina Applegate, Emily Blunt, Florence Welch, Sienna Miller, and Brooke Shields.  The cream continues to get rave online reviews from everyday women as well.  To activate and release its key ingredients, simply warm a small amount of Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream between your fingertips.  As you pat onto clean, dry skin, you will feel the soothing effects.  Smooth over your face, neck, even under the fragile eye area.  Apply day and night. 

A luxurious beauty classic, Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream is a must try.  Look out for #9 on our Beauty Classics You Must Own Countdown next week.
