We can't think of many better feelings than unwrapping La Mer on Christmas morning. The luxury skincare brand is more than just a bathroom shelfie dream with a cult following (which includes the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Blake Lively), the clever formulas really work, which is why we're always coming back for more.

What began with a pot of Crème de la Mer - essentially a very fancy moisturiser - has become a whole skincare range from serums to sheet masks, and the story behind them is almost as iconic as the brand itself.
The key ingredient in every product is La Mer's patented blend of bio-fermented sea kelp. Originally created by scientist Max Huber to treat burns he sustained after a lab accident, it progressed to skincare products when he realised its renewing and restorative powers.
From your parents to your partner, your best friend or even yourself, there's truly something for everyone in the collection and La Mer's limited-edition Christmas gift sets make the perfect presents.
