Yes i agree this product is super expensive and most expencive skincare item i ever bought however if you dont mind spending a lot on your skincare, buy it. Its extremely pleasant to use, great packaging, fantastic texture and smell. Makes me feel so special every time i open this bottle. In terms of result, i think i can definetely see imrpovement in my skin, it is more firm and more glowy. And with all La Prairie products it will last you a very long time. With my last purchase i received sample of night treatment from the same range and also found it an exceptional product.

I bought 2 bottles after facial at La Prairie shop and love it . However I can’t see much difference vs the essence in lotion for the carviar line (the blue glass bottle) so I will go back to my blue bottle instead of paying 3 times as much for this one

SkinCombination, Fair

This is a turbid elegant light pink somewhat thicker emulsion that might be difficult to dose from the very small opening of the bottle. At application it is easy to smooth over the skin and absorbed easily leaving a perceptible feel of (light) hydration on the skin. I believe that it might be enough in a warm and humid climate alone before application of sunscreen/foundation. Launched in February 2019. "Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion is the first step in a new beginning for skin. An unparalleled formulation drawn from the source of life that regenerates to rejuvenate." Looking at the ingredients list, the only ingredient I can find that can back the above statement is Niacinamide (Vitamin B3). I believe that it is in a concentration somewhere 1-3%. This lotion contains dimethicone and Isononyl Isononanoate as emollients, glycerin and several glycols as humectants. This results in the turbidity of the lotion. It has some actives, a pretty pink colour and some added particles that provide a light glittery effect after application on the skin (Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate). It has a light and pleasant fragrance that dissipates quickly after application. Retails for USD 655 for 115 ml (3.9 oz.) bottle. It is definitely a product no one needs. In my opinion, there is nothing in the formula that could even remotely justify a fraction of the outrageous price. One definitely pays for the very fancy packaging with the advanced solution used for the closing mechanism.
