La Prairie is a heritage with an unparalleled commitment to excellence, luxury and the science of skincare. Laboratoires La Prairie traces its proud heritage to the highly renowned Clinique La Prairie in Montreux, Switzerland founded in 1931. For more than half a century, the Clinique has been the pioneer in cellular, anti-aging therapy, sharing its unique accomplishments with thousands of visitors from around the world. La Prairie has luxurious skin care and makeup lines which offer various benefits to the skin based on the concern like “The Caviar Collection”, “Platinum Rare”, “White Caviar”, and more. I was sent La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-lotion and La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift as part of the press kit, I have used these products for more than a month before writing this review. The Skin Caviar Collection is for those who need refined skin texture, soothing, antioxidant protection, increase firmness and elasticity.
The Skin Caviar Collection is described as “A veritable icon, the Skin Caviar collection is the epitome of audacity. A legendary lifting and firming phenomenon, caviar extract helps support natural contours, restoring harmony to the face while profoundly improving the appearance of elasticity and tone.” These products are based on Exclusive Cellular Complex, a patented active ingredient complex that effectively protects against skin aging and damaging environmental influences.
What is Caviar?
Caviar has been known to be a magical source of dense, rich nutrients. Scarce and coveted, Caviar is a precious ingredient, sought after for its prestige, and for its power to enrich and regenerate skin.
More than 25 years ago, La Prairie journeyed to the depths of the sea to capture precious caviar beads and harness their rare restorative powers. The result was the wonder of Skin Caviar, created with potent ingredients from caviar.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-lotion
La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-lotion is described as the first transformative step in your skincare ritual, La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion prepares your skin to reap the benefits of serums and treatments to follow. This light yet potent, hydrating and conditioning formula contains caviar water, a highly-concentrated infusion with active caviar-rich components to lift and firm. It also helps to refine and minimize the appearance of pores.
I am a fan of essences and lotions that are used before the serum. Been using an essence in my skin care routine for years, I know how important an essence is, in order to create the perfect base on your skin to apply the serum and to get most benefits out of the serum. I have been using this morning and night before my serum and I am still so much impressed with it that I can not wait to see how my skin will look in the coming years as I do plan to keep this in my skin care routine for as long as I can. The essence-in-lotion comes packed in a beautiful heavy glass bottle with luxurious feeling as well as a beautiful print on it. I take 3-4 drops of this product on my palm and apply it onto my cleansed face with both hands. Then I massage it until it is absorbed into the skin. I did feel a slight difference in how my skin feels after the first use only and after using it for more than a month, I do feel my skin is more refined, hydrated and conditioned for the next step of using a serum. I do want to mention the fragrance of this product, it is so beautiful and unique, very subtle and luxurious. I sometimes just open the bottle of this essence-in-lotion to inhale the beautiful fragrance. For me, essences were a must-have step in my skincare routine and now after using this one, I am never going to be without it.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift
La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift is described as the next generation gravity-defying serum that lifts, firms and provides long-lasting effects. With a look that pays homage to our iconic skin caviar pearls, this formula contains scientific advancements that create exceptional results. Past skin damage recedes as existing cells are rejuvenated as new ones are super-charged, nourished and protected appearing lifted and taut. This serum epitomizes science and luxury, the heart and soul of La Prairie’s skin caviar collection.
This serum is an all-rounder product in my opinion. I have been using this regularly every night during my night time routine and more than three times during my day time routine and have noticed the difference. This is not something I thought will change, the quality of my skin. I see a major difference in how my skin looks and feel, not just in sense of glow and clarity but also in the sense of the quality and texture of the skin. No wonder why this line and this product are expensive and loved by so many celebrities and stars. My skin felt the firmness which I never thought about, in a good way. The appearance and texture of my skin are better than it ever used to be. The skin feels brighter and radiant after applying this serum. The golden beads that you see are the golden caviar beads stored in a separate chamber. There is a press button that you press and then shake the bottle, the beads turn into a milky emulsion with golden micro shimmer particles.
Both the products have not caused any irritation or sensitivity to my skin. The results from these are not something that you can describe exactly, it is something that you see and feel but still, I tried and explained my experience. And after using these products, now I know why they are so unique and advanced in terms of science and technology as well as the results. I am almost reaching my mid-thirties in few (let me say ‘few’ to feel better) years and I have not felt yet that I need something for lifting and firming but I am always on the side of anti-aging. And you might also think she is young ( in terms of skin, and not that young obviously) and she is suggesting a product for lifting and firming. Yes, I do hear you but as I mentioned this product has come out as an all-rounder for me. If the texture and quality of the skin are good, you will always have a beautiful skin. If you are in your twenties or thirties, I would suggest you check out these products and for my ladies almost in mid-thirties and above, you must try these, you will love me for this.
In spite of noticing the difference in my skin the next day after using these products, I am still noticing improvement every day and so happy with these products. I am definitely a fan and would totally recommend you to check out La Prairie Skin Caviar collection, it is totally worth it and you will not be disappointed. These products from La Prairie have completely changed the way my skin looks today and what I expect from a skin care product. I have never seen such nice and brilliant results on my skin all these years.
These are available at Holt Renfrew in Canada, Online, and In-stores.
