Today I'm talking about the most luxurious product that I have ever put on my face.
I feel I need to start with the price 'cause yeah, it's the elephant in the room, I suppose... a full size 50ml bottle is £304... there, done and dusted, now we can move on... ;P
I've always wanted to try La Prairie. I remember being a skint university student, browsing in Sephora between lectures and thinking "one day, one day I'll buy La Prairie... when I'll have a steady wage"
Well, I do have a wage now but that day still has to come!
The company is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the launch of their caviar skincare line and they have introduced a new product to the range: La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift*
The famous gold caviar pearls - rich in lifting action - have now been combined with a unique Recovery Complex that alters the skin's basic structure for long term firmness. New pentapeptides help maintain epidermal equilibrium and protect the cells from stress damage.
On top of that, the caviar extract concentration is the highest of the whole line; the caviar's derived from aqua-farmed Baerii Sturgeon and the shell of the beads is made of red algae... now, we're starting to understand the price...
You need to activate the 2 principles - combining the emulsion and the pearls - simply pressing the button on the neck of the tube; you only need to do this the first time and after that the serum is ready to use.
It smells like I would expect Kate Middleton to smell like: gloriously sophisticated.
You would use the serum twice a day before your normal moisturizer.
Parsimonious is the key word here: you need 1 drop per application - you definitely don't want to waste it!
I don't have particular issues with sagging just yet (Thank God) but my jawline is definitely in better shape and the results are instant; It also has blurring effects thanks to tiny flecks of gold in it and mattifies like nothing else... It's incredible! I'm getting scarily addicted to this product!
Definitely worth considering as a Christmas/Birthday/Hanukkah combined present to add to the list! :)
