Upping your skin care game as you age is so important! If that means splurging on luxury skin care products – then be it. During Christmas holidays, I made my first La Prairie purchase. I was curious as to whether I would see any benefits for myself after spending on this luxury skin care brand. But I was pleasantly surprised with the happy La Prairie journey so far and interested to try more. This is because I noticed a remarkable difference in the way my skin looked post using the products.
Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream – is one those moisturizers that make your skin appear as if you’ve drank gallons of water a day. That’s how moisturizing it is. I usually steer clear of richer, balmy moisturizers / day creams as my combination skin cannot take it. But the creamy-gel texture is not at all thick or heavy & worked very well with my not-so-easy skin without clogging pores. Plus, it left a velvety finish and made makeup application super smooth. Because of all the high moisture-goodness, I cherish it for colder months to cover the face rather in summer.
Dry skins on the other hand can literally get married to it as it’s quite simply put; a phenomenal moisturizer that leaves skin firm & deeply hydrated.
Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil -No matter what type of skin you have, this dry oil keeps the moisture game up like no other. It absorbs immediately, deeply hydrates and leaves no residue. I used it alone at nights when my skin is considerably dry and by mixing with Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream. All you need is 2 drop drops, to cover the face and it floods the skin with moisture without zero greasiness. I love the plump, soft and super smooth skin next morning whenever I’ve used it. All the flaky/dry patches were gone and my skin was very healthy looking.
- Both are phenomenal anti-aging moisturizers (comes in different textures), super light and non greasy. It’s quite difficult to get this formula right without causing breakouts.
- Longevity. Hydration levels are bound for long hours and made makeup lasts for longer too
- Perfect arsenal standby to fight winter and all dry skin woes. The BEST I’ve tried.
Dry oil is most effective I would say. This is because it is deeply hydrating anti-aging oil. You kill 2 birds by using this product alone and undoubtedly a faithful winter staple on its own too.
Though you’d get plenty of options in the moisturizing category, I can safely say, this duo is the Holy Grail for dry skins. Price point would be the only gripe, but we are talking about La Prairie here – and it’s all about luxury skin care & not drugstore. Your money is spent on highly researched skin care ingredients to combat pre-mature aging. So why not?
