La Prairie is the leader in luxury skincare, the name alone evokes innovation, performance, high-touch service and Swissness – the purity, precision and excellence are inherent to the extraordinary land that saw the brand’s inception in 1978. La Prairie endeavours to fulfil a quest for timeless beauty through the highest standards of advanced technology combined with exquisite formulations and elegant packaging – elevating science to art. Eyes in Focus – as I mentioned in the title of this editorial – it is all about the eyes – Revive, Raise, Redefine – The Gaze is Reawakened. There is one new addition to the Skin Caviar collection and one reformulation of the existing Skin Caviar Collection – both for eyes.

‘Known as the mirror of the soul, the eyes also tell a story of time past. The eye area includes some 22 muscles which are in perpetual motion. Indeed, we blink on average 10,000 times a day. Consequently, the delicate skin around the eye is the area of the face that displays the most concentrated signs of ageing, including gravity’s noticeable effects on both the upper and lower lids and brows, loss of elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles.’

Caviar Premier, the latest caviar incarnation developed by La Prairie scientists, the eye becomes the focus of La Prairie’s Swiss science. Caviar’s full lifting potential is aimed to be harnessed for the first time to revive, raise and redefine the gaze.

La Prairie has introduced Skin Caviar Eye Lift, the first eye-opening serum for the whole eye area, including brows – the gentle yet effective answer to eye lifting and firming concerns. Skin Caviar Eye Lift is a potent combination of two formulas enriched with Caviar Premier and La Prairie’s Exclusive Cellular Complex, which uses cutting-edge biotechnological research to give new life and energy back to the very cells where beauty is born.

Using innovative algorithms specifically developed for the study of Skin Caviar Eye Lift’s data, the scientists at La Prairie found that with regular use, over time the eyes are opened while the eye contours and eyebrows appear redefined. The upper lids look tightened while crow’s feet appear visibly reduced. Lower lids appear smoothed and under-eye bags and puffiness look diminished. With daily use, the complete eye area appears lifted and firmed. The gaze is raised, revived, redefined – reawakened with a new appearance, with a new perspective.

Inspired by the vial design of Skin Caviar Liquid Lift and its visible caviar beads, this latest eye area treatment is a homage to the potency and indulgence of the La Prairie’s iconic gold caviar beads. With a press of the activating pump, the two formulas – one encapsulated in caviar beads, the other in an innovative tourmaline-pink gel-cream emulsion, each housed in separate chambers to maintain their purity – are drawn up to a patent-pending mechanism that freshly blends them with each use. The result is a delightfully textured serum that melts into skin with a refreshing touch and an immediate tensing sensation.

The ritual: The Skin Caviar eye area ritual begins with perfectly clean skin. A few drops of Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex helps soothe and prepare the eye area for the treatments to follow. Gently pressing on the pump of Skin Caviar Eye Lift activates the blending mechanism and releases a single dose. Starting at the inner corner of the eye, the silky formula is dotted along the eyelid crease to the outer corner. As the dabbing gesture continues along the eye’s contours, a pleasant lifting sensation takes place, adding a delightful moment of indulgence to the morning or evening skincare ritual. Follow with Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream to complete the Skin Caviar eye area ritual for an indulgent experience that puts the eyes in focus.

Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream is remastered with Caviar Premier, the remarkable lifting and firming benefits of Caviar Premier are infused into this potent formula to target signs of ageing in the most delicate area of the face: loss of firmness and elasticity, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dryness and under-eye circles. This luxurious cream penetrates quickly, leaving the delicate skin around the eye looking smooth, firm and feeling exceptionally soft.

I have been using this in combination with the Liquid Lift and I am so glad about what it has done to my eye area. I never felt the need that my eyes need extra care – I thought they look okay for (a little over) mid-30s until I started using this duo. The skin around my eyes appears lifted and firmed, resulting in a total transformation. The eyes area looks smooth, firm, well-supported, tightened and toned, while the look of puffiness is diminished. The delicate skin of the lower and upper lids is deeply moisturized, leaving it with a feeling of unparalleled comfort. The eyebrow area looks redefined, upper lids look lifted, firmed, and tightened. The iconic sensorial experience features a modern interpretation of Skin Caviar’s signature fragrance and a silky texture that glides on effortlessly before vanishing into the skin.

This duo is a powerful combination of eye area lift in two little jars. I am so impressed with how science and technology has made innovations based on their research that without going the path of invasive procedures, skin can recover and be maintained with these products – I highly recommend you to check these La Prairie Skin Caviar additions. I little product is all you need and you may notice differences in just a few days as I did – there is a different kind of smoothness, radiance, freshness around the eye area that I have not experienced in a long time.

La Prairie is available at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
