I’ve always been impatient when it comes to reviewing skincare. The typical answers go through my mind. How long will I have to use it to see a difference? Will my skin react badly to it? What if it just doesn’t work? You get the idea. After trying numerous brands, I decided to really give it a go this time. 100% effort from my side means that if anything goes wrong or the products just don’t suit my skin then it’s down to the brand/products and not me.
I decided to give La Prairie a go. My first indirect experience with La Prairie products was when I was around 17 years old and worked in the Beauty department in Harrods Knightsbridge. I remember it being one of the most expensive and in particular I remember the Caviar line of La Prairie. I also assumed at that point that La Prairie was for the older woman with aged skin which is why I bought the gift set for my Mother and remember how amazing the scent of the cream was!
I recently read up on the collection and it turns out La Prairie is not just for mature skin. In fact, it’s perfect for young and mid aged skin. It’s about prevention and not just repairing. Why wait until you have the lines and wrinkle? I’ve been using the La Prairie Skin Caviar collection for around 3 months now. At first I was worried that I would just give up after a month of not seeing any results. A month went by and I stuck with it. It’s over the last month that I have really seen the difference and it’s been worth the wait. My skin feels smoother, looks clearer and brighter. The texture of my skin has improved significantly. My open pores look more refined and my once uneven skin tone seems to look more even and less patchy. I’ve also noticed more lift in my skin around the jowl area.
All I can say is that I’m actually excited about how my skin will look in another few months. It really works and it’s worth every penny. Below is exactly what I use after cleansing and when I use it.
STEP 1: Skin Caviar Essence-In-Lotion This is a pre-serum treatment and works wonders! It’s instilled with distilled Caviar water and helps to increase firmness and elasticity as well as hydrating and conditioning the skin. It also helps the skin to absorb the next steps in the skin care routine. How to use: I put a few drops in the palm of my hand and massage into the skin lightly then let the skin absorb it all in.
STEP 2: Skin Caviar Liquid Lift This provides a lifting and firming effect to the skin over long term use. It’s enriched with Caviar extract and the little pearl beads burst and mix into a milky fluid after you’ve activated the switch and shaken the bottle. How to use: I apply one pump of this to the palm of my hand and smooth onto the skin in an upwards motion, focusing on the areas I want lifting.
STEP 3: Skin Caviar Eye Lift Cream This firming and lifting eye treatment helps to combat dark circles, puffiness and dryness. How to use: Apply a small amount to your forefingers and lightly pat around the eye area but not too close to the tear duct. I circle around the eyes gently until absorbed.
STEP 4: Skin Caviar Luxe Cream This is perfect if you want that lifted and taut look. It helps to tighten the skin with it’s Caviar extract and also helps to refine the skin. How to use: I apply a small amount to my fingers and smooth over the face avoiding the eye and lip area.
