Masks -La Prairie -Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask

I received a sample of this mask as part of a gift with purchase set. If it weren't for the exorbitant price tag I would definitely repurchase the full size. Although it's not a necessary part of my routine when I use this cream my skin is left feeling so smooth and radiant the next morning.

I have al2ays wanted bright skin, being from a Mediterranean background I always envied the Europeans ,asians for their bright white skin,I thought I will never have such beautiful bright skin thats until I discovered this cream in use with their white pear infusion I now can too have wonderful bright white clean skin. I can't believe I have spend so many $$$ on skin care that does not work. ** ladies,if you want beautiful bright clean skin ** this is the one,together with their white pearl infusion you will see your skin transform into something beautiful. i know it's pricey but it's all worth it.

Treatments (Face) -La Prairie -Cellular Cream Platinum Rare

If you really want to buy LP then the Radiance Cellular Cream is far better than this one. At the higher price range like LP I actually prefer Sublimage from Chanel and it feels far more luxurious!


Treatments (Face) -La Prairie -Cellular Cream Platinum Rare

foto

I have the good fortune of a close friend who works at Sephora and also temporarily part-time at Nordstrom, so getting to try samples is rarely an issue for me. I wanted to try the Platinum Rare Cream just to see if it would help with a few fine lines and well, it's La Prairie right! Who would want to pass up on the chance to try that? I love their packaging - silly of me I know since that doesn't equal a great product and here's the thing about this cream...it was emollient but not overly so and although I used for a good 3 weeks I don't believe I could make out any real difference. Perhaps you need to use a few months or longer? Cost aside (which I don't have an issue with if something works) it is an ok moisturizer, but it's just ok, nothing extraordinary or a game changer. Glad to have tried but not a re-purchase for me.

Liquid -La Prairie -Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation SPF 25 PA+++

on 5/26/2018 7:26:00 AM

I have been using La Prairie Skin Cavier Foundation. And was intrigued when I got the email about this foundation in a cushion form. I went online to the LaPrairie website and chatted with on line helper and was delighted to find that my shade 10 Tender Ivory was matched to my skin cavier foundation.

I hve tried the product two ways.. a very light application under my regular foundation as well as a medium application on its own. I used the on line video and followed the instructions.. like every La Prairie product I own, a little goes a very long way.

I have acne scarred very fair skin with some hyper pigmentation from sun damage . I have fine lines . This foundation provides a very nice blur and smooth look to my skin, and smooths into my hair line with out creeping on to my white hair. I like that you can put the compact into its blue pouch that comes with it and carry it along on my work day. But I didn’t need to retouch. It looks better as the day wears on. No visible oxidation,.

I get compliments on my skin when using this foundation. It allows me to just use my La Mer Face underneath, no need for a primer. As I curate my minimal make up less than 10 items I use daily, La Prairie is the go to for foundation, cream blush , powder eyeshadow . All double duty to not only look good, but improve my skin.

Liquid -La Prairie -Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation SPF 25 PA+++

on 5/21/2018 8:15:00 PM

I’ve never owned a cushion foundation before, but this is a sheer/light foundation that can be built up to medium coverage. I have dry skin, so I love how hydrating it is. The finish is beautiful. It’s glowy, hydrating, evens my skin tone (melasma), and doesn’t settle in or accentuate my fine lines and wrinkles. I use a damp BeautyBlender to apply. If I don’t, the coverage is a bit heavier than I like. It comes with a flat disc sponge that is fine for a touch up, but too flimsy for all over application. The price is ridiculous. If you want to splurge, this is an elegant, long-lasting foundation that provides an even, radiant finish. I’m very fair (cool undertone), and NW10 works for me. My Nordstrom didn’t have NC10 or N10 in stock, so I don’t know if either would be a better match. I find La Prairie’s color system to be be confusing. I’m 45 with dry skin, so I don’t set this foundation with powder. I usually don’t like La Prairie products because of the heavy fragrance. This foundation is fragranced, but it’s tolerable and short-lived.

Whenever i get the chance to be the first reviewer of a product here I sort have this "set the tone" feeling, but I'm rambling already.

I don't know how I got into purchasing this product, I got an add for it via e-mail and it seemed so enticing. I usually shy away from La Prairie makeup, I find the coverage to be really heavy and very makeupy other than the brightening concealer/highlighter and the Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming cream. I did, however, want to try this cushion.

If you don't like makeup with strong perfume then this is not for you, the scent is strong and it's there. I can say that after an hour or so I'm either used to it or it just fades.

Each package comes with the compact, two refills, and two sponges. Each refill has 15ml worth of foundation so you're getting a regular sized foundation, and yes I know it doesn't justify the outrageous price but if you compare it to My Armani To Go cushion foundation, they're *almost* priced the same if you take into consideration that the Armani only comes with a refill.

The La Prairie cushion is their "caviar essence" makeup line, don't get me started on why I purchased the essence which I will review at a later date but don't be fooled by their cushion packaging this baby is a light to medium formula with a satin finish that seats amazingly on your skin and I feel as if my skin looks better when I take it off at night. The compact is heavy and not really purse friendly and you get the product dispensed through a metal net and you can use the sponge or a brush to apply it.

People with very oily skin will want to set this with powder in their t zone, I notice that I get shiny but not greasy.

It also lasts a lot when compared with other cushion foundations that I have used like the YSL Ink Cushion or the Armani ones which were my favourite but when I was taking my makeup off at night it seemed like my skin had absorbed all the product. I get a solid 8-10 hour wear with this, on me it doesn't separate or crease or set weirdly in more problematic areas and for review purpose I don't wear any other La Prairie product other than the Essence on my face.

I got it in N20 which is Pure Ivory which I think will suit me in the coming warmer months. This will most likely become one of those products that I will purchase with a 25% discount or at the Duty Free because of the outrageous price tag but I simply adore it and will definitely buy it again.

Loose Powders -La Prairie -Cellular Treatment Loose Powder Finishing Powder

on 5/12/2018 9:11:00 AM

foto

This is a very uniquely textured powder, it's almost creamy which I can imagine would be great for mature skin. I would not recommend this to anyone whose skin is on the oily side and prefers a matte finish that lasts all day; it mattifies my normal skin type enough for my liking, even over sunscreen.
I would say that color number 1 is not completely transparent, so it might not be ideal on snow-white skin in the winter months; I find that it makes my NC15 skin look a little more tan than I am, but not so much so that it doesn't match.
The smell is pretty strong for a powder, I happen to enjoy the signature La Prairie scent but you might not.

Powder -La Prairie -Cellular Treatment Foundation Powder

on 5/11/2018 11:41:00 PM

I’m nc10 and I owned the LP pressed “foundation” in Ivory. It is extremely dense so it took me about 2 years to finish it off although I did not use it daily. It is very demanding to the condition of the skin - it did accentuate dry flakes and was quite tricky to use if I needed to conceal little smth as I found I couldn’t really layer it , incl. on top of a concealer, as it caked and stood out from the rest of the face never blending in. And it did look powdery if I went “heavy handed”. A bummer, bc I bought it as a “foundation” marketed as having decent coverage - which it does not. Alone, I’d say it gives light coverage at the most, preferably even “sheer” for a more natural non-powdery finish. Light-midway medium coverage is imo only achievable with a “sticky” moisturizer, medium - with a foundation underneath. So, my experience with it is a) using it alone when the skin is perfectly hydrated, on its best behavior, with nothing to conceal - it then gives a nice polished satiny finish and holds up rather well for hours; b) on top of a liquid “sticky” product - but risking streaks/blotches and creasing in expression lines. In any case, although it surely is a “base” product, I can’t ever call it “a foundation” in its current sense of the word. A pretty good, finelly milled talc-based satiny mattifying non-translucent powder it is. Hence, the 4 lippies because, although imo mismarketed, it was a quality product. Not foolproof, btw. (quite cakeable) - but really in line with the like (eg Chanel vitalumiere pressed).
The shade had a light neutral-ish peachy undertone which opalesced to cool in a certain lighting (which was a bit ethereal and rather flattering). As far as I rememder all the 3 shades they make were peachy to a more or lesser extent. There aren’t really shades for warm (yellow-tone) complexions or when warm-based shades are advised (rosacea or other reddness that needs balancing out with yellower-based products).
Didn’t seem to irritate however I never noticed any sooting or skin-bettering effect.
I couldn’t EVER master the wet sponge application - and oh I tried. It was hot mess. Idk. I got a MUFE #110 (a dense softest straight kabuki marketed for liquid products) specially to use with this powder instead of the sponge/puff. It kinda worked as well as this powder “foundation” could perform. A fluffier kabuki (the Mufe #124) applied it sheer as a regular matte powder. The sponge that goes with the compact is made of a latexy stuff similar to the beautyblender, it is not the flocked type; and it was imo pretty unusable.
The compact was nice, a good quality plastic that didn’t really scratch during use and was light enough for travel.


Skincare -La Prairie -Skin caviar absolute filler

on 5/10/2018 8:47:00 PM

The la prairie skin caviar absolute filler is an amazing product. I am 43 and have some forehead lines, fine facial wrinkles but my current skin issue is an overall loss of “plumpness”. I was given a sample of this product and it is pure heaven. It is thick in texture but absorbs fabulously (much better than the skin caviar cream which left a weird shimmer and film that felt greasy long after that cream was applied). This cream leaves my skin feeling very substantial.

Now onto the packaging...it is a jar but with an ingenious dispensing system that keeps the unused product away from air and contaminants but dispenses just the right amount of product.

This is a VERY expensive (approx $605) product and my biggest beauty splurge ever but I would absolutely buy it again.

Loose Powders -La Prairie -Cellular Treatment Loose Powder Finishing Powder

on 5/10/2018 12:19:00 PM

This powder is super finely milled, the packaging is very luxe and the price tag albeit high isn't that unreasonable for the amount you get. Most importantly it doesn't cake and the finish is natural and beautiful, not flat at all.

Now there are some negative aspects as well; firstly it doesn't absorb oil. Shamefully. It's a gorgeous finishing powder but not even a decent oil control powder.
There is also a slight pink tint left on my face (I'm fair, warm toned using translucent 1) which isn't really flattering. Not a huge deal breaker but not ideal.
Lastly, while the packaging is fancy, how are you supposed to use a brush..? I mean the small compact has already a puff and mirror while the big jar has a spoon attached to the lid. I keep my Laura Mercier powder jar around to sprinkle some La Praire powder on the lid and dip the brush. Not convenient.

Still I love the finish, if it came in more colors and controlled oiliness somewhat it would be my HG

Sunscreen -La Prairie -Swiss UV Protection Veil SPF 50

on 5/9/2018 9:30:00 PM

I really really wanted to love this product. I am a true believer in both sun and environmental factors aging skin and the science behind this product was so compelling. I use several la prairie products so I thought this would be a good fit for my daytime routine.

Unfortunately I found the product to be thick and sticky like a cheap mineral sunscreen. The scent was pleasant but both spreading and tapping onto my skin did not result in a smooth finish-but rather a shiny and sticky finish. I would let is sit for a while. After about 30 minutes it would become more matte, but as soon as I put foundation on (skin caviar foundation) it would get weirdly clumpy and some areas would slide off.

Sadly this is a terrible product for everyday wear to work, under makeup, full day wear. On a positive note, sitting at kids sporting events all day in the sun did prevent any burn so it’s probably a good weekend, beach, pool spf.

Went back to the counter and I’m testing the anti-aging day cream spf 30 which is a chemical filter so hopefully that makes for a better makeup base.

Treatments (Face) -La Prairie -Cellular Power Charge Night Treatment

on 5/7/2018 9:10:00 PM

This product was my first la prairie purchase. I read a review in a magazine that said it was the best beauty purchase and I decided to check it out. The lovely woman at the counter filled a small jar and I used the product for 5 days. I ran to purchase the full size when the 5 days were up. I have very breakout prone skin (sadly, still at 43 years old) that is starting to look haggard. I’m not into the whole Botox scene but am looking to fade some forehead lines and just appear more youthful.

This product cleared up any breakouts and within a few days left me with a more even complexion. By the end of the first month on continual use (I use the la prairie sleep mask 2x per week and this product the other 5 days) my skin looks dramatically different. Totally even, fewer breakouts and smooth as silk. Totally worth the splurge.

Treatments (Face) -La Prairie -Cellular 3-Minute Peel

on 4/29/2018 2:19:00 AM

I LOOOOOOVVVEE this stuff so much!!! I’ve been using the LP 3-minute peel for 2-3 years now, and it really is a game changer. I’ve neve gotten professional peels done because I have very sensitive skin and didn’t want to break out. The LP peel is so gentle, yet so damn effective. I use it once a week, and sometimes twice a week if I start breaking out a little. You’re supposed to leave the peel on for 3 minutes, but I leave it on for 10-15 minutes. The results - retexturized, smooth, bright, soft, and clear beautiful skin! If you use other AHA/BHA products or if you’ve never used AHA/BHA products, you may experience a slight burning sensation, but it will go away as soon as you wash it off. I don’t recommend leaving on for more than 15 minutes, and NEVER use this in conjunction with retinol products or you’ll burn your skin. It’s expensive but the results are so wonderful that I’ll be using this forever! Small price to pay for glowing skin.
