Amber Rose Says This Drugstore Cult Classic Works Just like La Mer
By Carolyn Hsu |
Amber Rose, like many celebrities, relies on top-of-the-line skin care products and regular treatments to maintain her enviably gorgeous complexion. But she also revealed in a recent interview with US Weekly, that those wishing to replicate her skin care routine don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on skin care creams.
“I use Clinique mild face wash and then I’ll use the La Mer moisturizer before I go to bed and I’ll kind of just cake it on so it’s still not fully rubbed in and then I’ll wake up and my skin is glowing,” Rose said to Us. “If La Mer is a bit expensive for you, you can use the Nivea cream that comes in the container that you turn open. You can get that at CVS and honestly, it works just as well.”

This is not the first time we’ve heard of Nivea being a dupe for the iconic Crème de la Mer. Multiple websites that have dedicated much time and space to analyzing the two products point out that many of the key hydrating ingredients are the same in both Nivea and La Mer, including mineral oil, petroleum jelly and glycerin, although the differences lies in additional botanical complexes (namely the famed La Mer algae “miracle broth”).
Rose also relies on the help of Beverly Hills, CA, plastic surgeon, Jason Diamond, MD, for skin maintenance. “He has face (skin) tightening he does Botox, he does fillers, he does dermabrasion,” she says.
Turns out—with the right treatments and products—Rose’s skin care secrets might be more straightforward than you think to replicate.
