Skin Caviar Liquid Lift From La Prairie… By: Michael Hepworth
High end Swiss skin care company have launched their Skin Caviar Liquid Lift Serum recently, and it is part of their Caviar Collection. Twenty-five years ago the company launched Skin Caviar Dermo Beads, and this is the natural extension. The claim is to give an instant face lift to the skin thanks to the introduction of a Glucose based polymer (Xanthan Gum Crosspolymer) which lightens and smoothes the skin rapidly with immediate and long lasting effects.
Now I should warn you that the price tag of $500 is steep for the attractive and sleek 50ml container, but the caviar extracts which you can see in the bottle are rich in amino acids which are good for the vitality of the skin on a long term basis. It also contains a new pentapeptide which protects the environment of the epidermal stem cells and maintaining equilibrium as well as stress protection. It also works as a recovery complex allowing past damage to recede, helping the epidermal stem cells to flourish.
The new pentapeptide is also known as Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38 and rebuilds the skin particularly around the hairline and crows feet. The concoction also includes Acmella Oleracea Extract, which is a plant based ingredient that relaxes the skin reducing the dreaded “expression” lines. Pro vitamin B-5 acts as a humectant, binding moisture to the skin. Throw in Vitamin C and Glycoproteins along with Horsetail and Ginseng extracts and you have the whole package broken down.
Also from La Prairie is the Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream ($295-20ml tube) that attacks the seven prominent eye area agers-fine lines, wrinkles, firmness loss, elasticity loss, puffiness, dark circles and dryness. Here are the main ingredients and their benefits-Buckwheat Wax which is rich in phytosterols to reduce puffiness. Imperata Cylindrical Root gives 24 hour hydration, and Caviar Extract, Sweet Almond Protein and Marine Lifting Complex provide lifting, firming and tightening. Yes there are more such as algae extract to limit the appearance of dark circles, sea algae extract, amica extract which soothes and calms, Nylon-12 which reduces lines and wrinkles, and finally cellular complex for overall skin health.
The Skin Caviar Luxe Cream ($390-50 ml jar) certainly lives up to its name, and It gives an immediate boost to tired skin. The cream includes a Caviar Firming Complex that pampers the skin, and providing a fresh radiance. It also has a combination of Citric, Malic and Lactic Acids for the ultimate in anti-aging benefits.
