Having just returned from “the happiest place on earth” with my entire family celebrating birthdays for Mickey and my girls, my Fitbit showed over 53,000 steps in 5 days so in bold type I must say – I am pooped! But! Tomorrow “is another day” as I am fond of saying and I am off to the mall to check out a new beauty product I heard about while I was away.
I had to pack conservatively when it came to my beauty bag since many of our skincare products are heat sensitive and I didn’t want them breaking down as they traveled to sunny California in the belly of the plane. So I opted to take samples of a line of products that I could slip into my purse that would last for a week and chose La Prairie of Switzerland.
Three products – so three reviews this week. La Prairie’s Anti Aging Rapid Response Booster is a fast acting wrinkle filling gel serum. Product labeling promises you will see visibly younger looking skin in two weeks and I have indeed seen a difference in my skin. I applied this serum twice a day – AM and PM directly to lines and wrinkles as it delivered anti-wrinkle peptides exactly where needed to reduce depth and length of wrinkles. Nice!
Okay so the next product I packed was a richly indulgent cream for my eyes, La Prairie’s Cellular Radiance Eye Cream. Product labeling states It revitalizes hydrates and smoothes the delicate skin around your eyes, and a brightening complex diffuses light for a golden glow. Signs of stress and fatigue which of course happens on family vacations was replaced by instant luminosity. It worked! Again with this fabulous eye cream I saw a difference by Day 5.
Finally, I found another jewel in La Prairie’s Anti Aging Neck Cream which is formulated to help reshape the chin and neck area by producing a slimming and tightening effect through regular use. The cream also helps reduce age spots while promoting even skin tone, elasticity and texture. Over time I have no doubt that this product would slim and tighten the neck as I noticed some of this from the sample I was using. Reshaping the chin? I cannot comment on that because it didn’t happen. But! Again it was used as a sample for one week.
What I must pause and say at this point is La Prairie is a luxury skincare line. Price points are very high, in fact, these three products cost within a few pennies of what I paid for all of us to go to Disney. But! The small change I saw in one week indicates there could be real changes in my skin when used over a long period of time.
So I’m thinking… perhaps these products go on my Christmas list?
