Spring is here, and whilst we all cheer that the harshness of the winter elements are gone, spring and summer bring with them their own skincare challenges. That being said, I find Spring a great time to change up my beauty routine, and just in time, La Prairie has brought out three new products to their world-renowned line.
The first two additions are part of La Prairie’s Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection. This line is aimed at a busy, active clientele fighting off the environmental challenges of an active lifestyle and the first signs of aging. This collection seems focused towards a younger audience who definitely don’t get as much attention from the luxury beauty brands as other demographics. As we all know, the key to maintaining healthy, youthful skin is to start taking care of it early. The two new products from this collection are Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream and Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Serum.
The Transforming Cream takes the idea of an all-in-one day cream and takes it to the next level. Not only is it a great light-weight moisturizer, it has built into it a myriad of environmental protections. True to La Prairie’s heritage, the key ingredients are sourced from nature. With La Prairie’s advanced technology, their scientists were able to harvest hardy wild mountain plants and create a complex that ‘embodies the strength and survival mechanisms of the plants and transfers them to the skin’. Take this complex and add in smart, adaptive, self-adjusting, color-correcting pigments, which identify the missing colours in the complexion that create dullness and balance them back immediately. In short, this isn’t just your typical tinted moisturizer. This product might be my new spring/summer skincare essential. It’s so quick and easy and covers all the bases.
The second product to be added to the collection is the Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Serum. Aimed at fighting pollution, climate, late nights, and stress, this silky, lightweight, skin-replenishing serum feels amazing on your skin. It is silky smooth and revives complexion instantly. Dryness and dullness seem to disappear. La Prairie says “Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Serum draws its power from an innovative fusion of advanced Swiss science and nature’s mysteries of resilience and longevity.
Last, but definitely not least, is the Cellular Swiss Protection Veil. Sheer enough to use over a moisturizer and rich enough to be used as a light-weight moisturiser on its own, the Cellular Swiss Protection Veil is a powerhouse of skin protection in a tube. Living in a world of extremes, your skin encounters heat, cold, changing climates and pollution on a daily basis. Cellular Swiss Protection Veil is La Prairie’s answer to combat these daily extremes. The formula includes extracts from Noble Edelweiss, a resilient plant native to Switzerland that enhances skin’s ability to defy age-inducing UV-exposure and external stress factors. Fortified with Smart Crystal White, a licorice-based herbal brightening formula exclusively designed for La Prairie, Cellular Swiss Protection Veil inhibits melanin production, improves skin clarity, reduces dullness, and evens skin tone.
These new products are each a revolution in skin care, and I am most definitely keeping them in my daily routine. Don’t just take my word for it.
