Creme Smooth foundation has an interesting texture: it’s like pudding in a jar, though the sales associate assured me that it spreads and blends like a dream (gliding over the skin, she said, not settling into lines). She also said it’s the first Laura Mercier foundation that is specifically recommended for application with fingers.
To my surprise, the sales associates said Creme Smooth’s coverage was not as full as Silk Creme; it provides medium, buildable coverage (and they strongly recommended using it with a primer).
Creme Smooth is Laura’s first treatment foundation (though, as with almost all treatment foundations, it shouldn’t replace your regular skincare). It contains Dermaxyl (a line-reducer, said to help with moisture retention) and is best for normal-to-dry skin. According to the sales associates, you should see reduced lines and wrinkles in four weeks of use.
