LAMELLE Serra Restore Cream

Moisturiser. Dry, dehydrated, sensitive skin types.

This light cream contains patented lipid bi-layer recovery ingredients and is formulated for the treatment of dry skin. In dry skin the lipid bi-layer – a structure of natural oils between the dry skin cells in the top layer of your skin – is generally damaged. This layer is critical to maintaining the integrity and immunity of your skin and is responsible for trapping water in your skin and keeping foreign molecules out

Features & Benefits

Features & Benefits

Using a product rich in vegetable oil might feel like it’s relieving the problem, but it won’t fix the damaged layer. Serra Restore Cream contains ingredients that replace this damaged lipid bi-layer. Your skin will trap water more effectively, resolving increase water loss and dryness of your skin. More than that, it will prevent the penetration of foreign particles that might cause irritation, inflammation and even allergic reactions

The product will correct the pH of the acid mantle ensuring healthy skin with good immune protection. It also has a calming and soothing effect on dry skin and will hydrate with added lipid and essential fatty acids that have been lost through the damaged lipid bi-layer.

    An absolute must for someone who’s barrier is impaired and for someone who is on reaccutane.

  2. Alison (verified owner)

    Simply the best!

  3. Helena (verified owner)

    The best moisturizer I have ever used!

  4. Rozanne (verified owner)

    The restore cream is amazing. My skin has never felt this healthy. It gives the perfect moisture my skin needs.

  5. Lindsy (verified owner)

    Best moisturiser I have ever used. Will definitely order it again.

  6. Leigh-Anne (verified owner)

    I’ve been using the Lamelle Serra Restore Cream for two weeks now, and it has been absolutely amazing for my skin! This cream is incredibly nourishing and has made a noticeable difference in the hydration of my skin.

    The texture is rich yet absorbs easily, leaving my skin feeling soft and deeply moisturized without any greasiness. After just a short period of use, my skin feels smoother, more supple, and looks more radiant.

    What sets the Lamelle Serra Restore Cream apart is its ability to repair and restore my skin’s natural barrier. I’ve seen a significant reduction in redness and irritation, and my skin feels much more resilient.

    I highly recommend the Lamelle Serra Restore Cream to anyone looking for a deeply nourishing and effective moisturizer. It has become a staple in my skincare routine, and I’m thrilled with the results after just two weeks. Can’t wait to see how my skin feels and looks after long-term use! :)

  7. mthaysen (verified owner)

    I never knew I had dry skin… and then the doctor introduced me to this range of products, WOW, what a change, my skin looks healthy and alive, and I am getting compliments daily, Could not live without this product.

  8. Nafeesah (verified owner)

    Love this product. If you have flaky, dry and dull skin this is your go to! This leaves your skin feeling hydrated for hours. Wish this came in a bigger size

  9. Mirriam (verified owner)

    Cannot leave without this cream, the best moisturiser for dry skin especially!

  10. Nazreen (verified owner)

    Updated review:
    I’ve tried other amazing, more expensive products but nothing comes close to this cream.
    I can’t live without it.

  11. Vanessa (verified owner)

    This product exceeded my expectations in calming, soothing & hydrating my sensitive skin. Recently my eczema has been flaring up leaving my skin inflamed, sore, dry and red. I have tried many products but nothing comes close to Lamelle Serra Restore in providing comfort and relief. Usually I need to resort to cortisone ointment to calm the flare ups, so I’m thankful for this wonderful alternative. I highly recommend this product with confidence.

  12. Victoria (verified owner)

    First time I am using this cream; I highly recommend this product – very happy!

  13. Simonne (verified owner)

    I’m quite happy with this cream, its light, and I sometimes feel like its too light for my skin, but that’s just because I’m used to ‘over-moisturizing”. My skin never feels dry with this cream, so I am happy overall.

  14. Nawaahl (verified owner)

    Lamelle Serra Restore Cream is amazing. Leaving my skin hydrated, plumped and glowing. I love this product. Thank you skin miles.

  15. Londi (verified owner)

    This is my go-to cream for years. I made the mistake of trying another brand of a similar type and circled back real quick to my tried and true. You cannot go wrong with this cream.

  16. tertia (verified owner)

    This product is amazing, been struggling with dry skin all my life, tried almost everything that has been recommended to me, and eventually met Lamelle, there’s no match, my skin feels amazing!!!

  17. Mirriam (verified owner)

    Such an amazing product, a little goes a long way!

  18. Mirriam (verified owner)

    This has now become my go-to moisturiser, it is a must try for dry skin!

  19. Shanique (verified owner)

    Game changer! Super hydrating – leaving my skin brighter and smoother. ✨

  20. Stacey (verified owner)

    This moisturiser has been great for my rosacea-prone skin. It’s hydrating and leaves my skin soft and glowy. I have not experienced any adverse reactions. Definitely recommend.

  21. janel (verified owner)

    Great moisturiser!

  22. Gabrielle (verified owner)

    I starting using this product during COVID when my skin reacted with dermatitis. Now cleared, this is my favourite product I cannot live without. Skin glows and feels so hydrated. Sometimes use morning and night.

  23. Mirriam (verified owner)

    I have not looked back ever since i discovered this gem! no dry tight skin.

  24. Deserise (verified owner)

    It is the only product that helps for my under eyelids. They get very dry, red and inflamed. This is an amazing product.

  25. Ruwayda (verified owner)

    Amazing!! Very good investment. Highly recommended.

  26. Dayini (verified owner)

    This product is mandatory in my daily skin care routine. It leaves your skin feeling hydrated and plumped and silky. I absolutely love it!

  27. Catherine (verified owner)

    When it comes to dry, irritated & inflamed skin, there is nothing more soothing than the Lamelle Serra Restore. I cannot recommend this product enough, it’s a stable in my routine and the first thing on hand in my skin has any kind of flare up or irritation.

  28. Taryn (verified owner)

    This product helps me with redness and sensitivity. The cream spreads easily and evenly; you only use a little bit at a time so it lasts a long time.

  29. Selvum (verified owner)

    This product is the absolute best for my dry skin…love it!

  30. Megan (verified owner)

    This is my go-to in winter and when my skin needs extra TLC (like after peels). I also used it throughout my pregnancy. Recommended by Dr Alek. My skin feels hydrated and smoothe.

  31. Denise (verified owner)

    I started using this cream and instantly I’ve noticed a difference in my skin texture and a reduction of uneven skin tone. It definitely hydrates my skin.

  32. Prinasha (verified owner)

    I have started using this product during my pregnancy and it has been absolutely amazing on my skin. I started it just before winter and it kept my skin hydrated (not oily) and smooth. I will definitely continue this moisturiser even after my pregnancy. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a hydrating moisturiser.

  33. Anna (verified owner)

    I started using this product after a peel and my skin continued to glow even in recovery mode, this will form part of my routine going forward. It is so nourishing without making my skin oily, in fact this keeps the balance that I have never had between my serum, daily moisturiser and sunblock. Absolutely love it!

  34. Belinda (verified owner)

    The best product to make the crocodile skin disappear in winter!!

  35. Shan

    I’ve used this after peels with sunblock and it’s very moisturising. Good stuff

  36. Liezl (verified owner)

    I buy this life saver every winter!

  37. Ashleigh (verified owner)

    I adore this moisturiser, especially for winter. Just wish it came in a bigger tube as this one runs out quite quickly. Have already repurchased!

  38. Michelle (verified owner)

    Love this profuct. Helped with redness and sensitivity. You also need a very small amount, so lasts quite long. Good value for money.

  39. Cathy (verified owner)

    LOVE this cream, gentle on my face and my skin feels hydrated the entire day. Just wish it came in a larger bottle so I could use more!

  40. Simonne (verified owner)

    I really like this cream. It is light and moisturises well. I have been using it for a few months now and it does not make my skin breakout or feel too oily after application.

  41. Kirsti (verified owner)

    I haven’t bought this in a while and completely forgot how sensational it is! My skin is SO soft. This is perfect for winter.

  42. Mirriam (verified owner)

    I wish I knew about this cream earlier, what a relief for dry skin!!

  43. Zanele (verified owner)

    Game changer your dry skin takes a 360 turn! Believe the hype.

  44. SALOME (verified owner)

    Absolutely believe is this cream. Really protects skin by fixing barrier. You can feel how your skin changes as you start using is. Softer and more elastic skin texture. Just overall HAPPY SKIN. 10/10

  45. Glenda (verified owner)

    This product was recommended to me by Dr Alek to restore skin barrier function. I have used it before in winter and I found it to be just as good for my dry skin in summer. It is gentle enough to use around my extremely sensitive eyes for a hydration boost. It hydrates superbly without being oily, absorbs really well without disappearing, and is super calming.

  46. Nazreen (verified owner)

    This is my third purchase of this cream and I absolutely love it. It hydrates my dry dehydrated skin, isn’t oily and doesn’t ‘sit’ on the skin- it absorbs into the skin quickly. It leaves your skin feeling soft and springy. Beautiful product

  47. Marni (verified owner)

    I have tried almost every single moisturizer available on the market. The Serra Restore Cream is the one moisturizer I have been most loyal to. It’s perfect for a dry and sensitive skin.

  48. Claire (verified owner)

    This cream is amazing in making your skin feel nourished without feeling sticky. It is great to use after a treatment like microneedling or fraxel and is really soothing. It is at such a great price point and I have repeat purchased it for my sensitive dry skin.

  49. Helena (verified owner)

    For a very dry skin this product is a must have.

  50. SALOME (verified owner)

    Lamelle changed my skin for good! The restore cream is a great moisturizer. Combining the restore cream (am) and Lamelle RA cream (pm) really works for my skin currently.

  51. Helen (verified owner)

    I have tried other hydrating moisturisers, but this is my all-time go-to. I will never deviate. It’s texture and formulation really works for my dehydration. And it’s local and I just love supporting local. Very important for the South African economy. I use day time and night time with the serums of my choice – makes skincare a breeze! Thank you Lamelle and SkinMiles.

  52. Patricia (verified owner)

    My skin feels & looks healthier. The Serra Restore cream leaves my skin hydrated after each application. Thanks Dr Alek

  53. Alice (verified owner)

    I tend to have dry skin, and my skin loves this sooooo much. I wish it was available in bulk at a cheaper price LOL! Will never stop using this.

  54. Zanele (verified owner)

    It is worth all the money, thank you for such a great recommendation. winter and summer I’m stuck with it.

  55. Deserise (verified owner)

    Such a wonderful cream. It is a bit expensive but it lasts long.

  56. Sproetjies (verified owner)

    My skin adores this cream, have seen an amazing improvement! It is now my daily cream and my skin is looking radiant!
    Skin Type: Very Dry, iffy barrier, sensitive

  57. Patricia (verified owner)

    Thank you so much Dr Alek for recommending the Serra Restore Cream as part of my repair regimen. My skin was extremely thirsty, dull & unresponsive. After being misled for months with a lot of products; my skin is finally coming alive just by using this moisturizer. I’m gaining my confidence because my skin looks healthy, feels subtle & looks natural.

  58. Leigh (verified owner)

    My daughter is on Accutane and has struggled to find relief from side effects of dry skin. This product is has made such a difference.

  59. Leigh (verified owner)

    Love love love. Just can’t beat this product. Love the dewy feel after applying and my skin just keeps looking better and better.

  60. Tanya101 (verified owner)

    I have been suffering from very dry skin on my face during my pregnancy and this is really helping.

  61. Shelley (verified owner)

    Lovely product – really hydrated my skin and feels hydrated the whole day.

  62. Helena (verified owner)

    The BEST moisturiser EVER!!

  63. Selvum (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this product for over 2 months now and just a small amount keeps my sensitive skin well hydrated and glowing. Definitely a stapel for me!

  64. Samantha (verified owner)

    I thought I had dry skin but perhaps it’s dehydrated skin. I use very little and my skin stays flexible and soft the whole day. Also having less breakouts and irritation. Using for 2 weeks now.

  65. Liezl (verified owner)

    I thought I was going to be ok this winter without this cream. Big mistake! So I purchase it yet again and now my skin is happy

  66. Chanel (verified owner)

    Great moisture without the oily feeling.

  67. Michel (verified owner)

    I’ve been using Serra restore cream for about 10 years now, there is NO other face cream that gives me the hydration that my face needs….and I’ve tried quite a few products! Serra restore is always on my list😄

  68. Candice (verified owner)

    This cream provides the moisture my skin needs without leaving my skin feeling oily. I love this product.

  69. Londi (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this cream for years. Nothing beats this one. This is as good as it gets.

  70. Kirsti (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this for years! Every time I try and use something else, I always come back to this product. Brilliant!

  71. Cheleigh (verified owner)

    Stunning product!
    Since I have been using this my skin is much more tolerant to products with active ingredients and the redness and sensitivity is gone. It was recommended that I use it for two weeks to repair my barrier function, but I think I will definitely keep on using it.

  72. IlseKl (verified owner)

    Your skin just drinks in every drop of this amazing moisturiser. Incredibly hydrating and calming. So soothing to the skin, and feels very nourishing.

  73. Marni (verified owner)

    This is probably the best moisturizer I have used. It’s affordable and is just perfect for my sensitive skin. I even use it for my son’s sensitive and eczema prone skin.

  74. Charmaine (verified owner)

    A lovely calming cream. Very moisturizing. I will continue to ise this product.

  75. SD (verified owner)

    I had a bad rash/eczema on my face and neck. It was dry, itchy and flakey. This cream helped so much after 2 applications. Definitely recommend for dry skin. I will continue to use as a moisturizer when needed.

  76. Jessica (verified owner)

    My absolute favourite daily cream! I have had terrible rosacea and it took me years, but after communicating with the team on SkinMiles (and accepting that ‘care costs money’) I found Lamelle. It has literally saved my face! Something else I’ve discovered is that the cream really doesn’t work so well without the wash. It’s worth getting the full set

  77. Marni (verified owner)

    I have found a skincare range that suits my skin’s needs 100%. The Serra Restore cream is amazing, and works so well for my sensitive skin! I am hooked. I also find it so affordable

  78. Ilze (verified owner)

    Great purchase through the best online skin care provider! Only product that provides ongoing moisturize for dry skin, highly recommended

  79. Lynner (verified owner)

    I have dry, eczema-prone skin, and this cream ticks all the boxes. Light-weight, easily absorbed and non-greasy, it works well layered under sunscreen and keeps my skin feeling soft, supple and nourished all year round.

  80. Londi (verified owner)

    I have been using this cream for over 3 years. No other cream has been able to do what this one does for me. My holy grail!

  81. Tammy (verified owner)

    Great product . My skin feels a difference after just a week . My only wish is that it was bigger!!!

  82. Donna (verified owner)

    I can’t get enough of this cream! It’s my 5th tube at least, and when I tried to move over to a lighter cream for summer my skin missed it so much! This cream is perfect for winter and summer months, and your skin just feels quenched!

  83. Helena (verified owner)

    The best Day/night cream for a dry skin!

  84. Alessia (verified owner)

    I was looking for something a little more nourishing for the winter months. This product relieved the tightness I was experiencing from the first application. I love how gentle and soothing it is. I personally found it a little too thick for day time (especially when layered with an SPF), but I’ve really enjoyed using it as a night cream.

  85. Faryn (verified owner)

    First time I’ve bought this product, after hearing so many reviews on it. I must say that it lived up to my expectations. My barrier was slightly impaired and I was a little dehydrated. This really helped heal my skin and my skin is feeling juicer for it!

  86. Sarita (verified owner)

    I love this cream and use it all the time. It is wonderfully hydrating, gives a lovely glow and doesn’t make your skin greasy. It is also great for post procedure or for days when you feel you just want a simpler regime, it is good enough on its own. Highly recommend.

  87. Deserise (verified owner)

    It is an absolutely amazing cream. My husband and I can’t get enough of it. I also use it around my eyes. We just wish that it came in a bigger size.

  88. Ruth (verified owner)

    This is a truly lovely moisturizer It is hydrating and soothing and leaves my skin glowing
    I am very pleased that I decided on it to complement my Lamelle Ultra Renewal night cream

  89. Tammy (verified owner)

    My skin after 2 weeks is less dry and inflamed . Calmed my skin and the more I use it the more smooth and supple it feels . Thanks for recommending

  90. Cindy (verified owner)

    When Dr Alek recommended this product for my badly dry flaking skin, I wasn’t sure it would work as I had tried other creams before. But I am a convert, I love the restore cream. My skin barrier has recovered completely and the cream is now a staple in my routine.

  91. Kirsti (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this product for over 3 years and cannot find another product that compares! Simply the best!

  92. Nikki (verified owner)

    I Was recommended this product By Dr Alek recently after an assessment, and I feel that it is really helping hydrate my skin, my skin feels smooth and has more glow .

  93. Zelma (verified owner)

    The process from ordering to receiving to using and seeing results from your products are just a pleasure! This cream is really soothes my dry, irritated skin. I usually suffer from breakouts, but this product has not caused my skin my break out at all. Thank you for your great service and products!

  94. Jade (verified owner)

    I started using this cream on Dr Alek’s recommendation while dealing with some stubborn breakouts. It really helps soothe the irritated parts of my face, and the rest of my skin looks genuinely smoother and glow-ier, so I’ll definitely keep using it even after my acne has cleared up.

  95. Alanis (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this product. Best facial moisturiser I’ve used! Leaves my skin feeling smooth, hydrated and my skin did not react badly in anyway. Reordered another one this morning and can’t wait to receive it.

    Fantastic product. It is so soothing and improved my dry, rough skin overnight. Ideal for use during winter when you’re exposed to cold air, heaters etc.

  97. Rochelle (verified owner)

    Love this moisturizer and started using it on Dr Alek’s recommendation. Absorbs easily into the skin, is very soothing and hydrates my skin without leaving it oily.

  98. Monique (verified owner)

    This is an absolute must for everyone! We all have times when our skin barrier is disrupted, whether it’s environmental or from a treatment. It’s soothing, nourishing, hydrating. An absolute staple.

  99. Leigh (verified owner)

    Started using the Serra Restore last winter and quite honestly have never looked back! Winter skin is a thing of the past with this product. I pair it with the Lamelle Correctives HA plus which has worked wonders for me.

  100. DerryAnn (verified owner)

    Dr Alek recommended this product to help repair my skin barrier as I was experiencing sensitivity and redness. All I can say is wow. What an amazing product. It is so nourishing and hydrating and doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily. The product absorbs beautifully and the texture is just so good! Will continue to repurchase.

  101. Deserise (verified owner)

    I just adore this product. It feels wonderful on my skin. My husband and I are both using it now. I had eczema under my eyes and after two days of using this product it disappeared. We really recommend this product.

    This is the only cream that helps me during winter. With all other creams I tried my skin just continued to feel incredibly dry.

  106. abigail

    I use this cream when my skin has been triggered by reactions. Sometimes from treatments ( after care . ITs a great basic and restore cream. It’s not my everyday but I do keep for when I need it.

  107. Jade (verified owner)

    I’m struggling with acne breakouts and perioral dermatitis, and this cream is the only thing that really soothes it when it’s angry and painful. The parts of my face that aren’t inflamed really glow after using this, too.

  108. Lee-Anne (verified owner)

    I’ve been using Serra Restore for a few years. I have rosacea and very dry skin, and I have found that this is the only thing that has really kept my face feeling healthy. I had tried the soothing in this range, but this was too rich for my skin. I love this product.

  109. Gizella Harding (verified owner)

    I specifically purchased the Serra Restore Cream as I was experiencing skin sensitivity and flackiness due to the use of Retinol.My skin feels and looks well hydrated hours after the application of this cream.It is an excellent moisturizer and is soothing,assisting with skin dryness associated with Retinol use.

  110. Daniela (verified owner)
