With a week to go for Diwali, primping our homes is not the only change we go for. With us ladies, this is another excuse to go splurge on ourselves. So I thought, why not take my mom out for something different this time? I wanted her to have a different experience as opposed to the routine facials she always went for. I visited La Prairie during one of my trips to the mall and discovered the amazingly unique range of products they have. Upon speaking to them, they offered a facial service for mom using their special Skin Caviar range.
The most amazing thing about this range is the use of caviar extracts in this entire range that helps your skin get a naturally healthy glow. Regular usage over a period provides permanent change. Each product has high coverage, the smoothest texture and a distinct fragrance.
This is how she looked before her facial service (she has her compact on):
The products used in order (L-R)
Skin Caviar Essence-In-Lotion, Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex, Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream, Skin Caviar Liquid Lift, Skin Caviar Luxe Cream and Cellular Swiss UV Protection(SPF 50)
This is after her facial service:
The difference was instant and amazing. Her skin had a dewy natural glow, I couldn’t take my eyes off her.
She said “The cleanser (Skin Caviar Essence-In-Lotion) used did not dry my skin at all like the other ones we use. This one hydrated my skin. I could easily skip the moisturiser if I wanted. The products have left my skin feeling supple and well hydrated but not greasy, unlike when I use the usual products. I did not even know my under-eye was dehydrated until I felt the serum seep in. Service was great. Would recommend this to all.”
While she was getting her facial service, I looked around a little more and found other extremely fascinating ranges. They were happy to let me sample a few:
The Cellular Radiance Range
Considering the 24karat gold particles, I had to try their serum.
At first, I thought the gold particles as seen in the serum, would be visible as particles over my skin. But after massaging the serum in my skin, I realised they only left behind a healthy yellow-undertone finish. The serum kept my skin hydrated till the next morning.
Just like the gold range had gold particles, this infamous range has platinum particles. I sampled their moisturiser.
The texture was dense, but it blended into my skin smoothly. This one left behind a white-undertone glow. The platinum particles are used to make the skin tight and supple.
They also have a range of cleansers and toners. The toners do not take away the natural hydration of your skin and work wonders due to the amount of quality ingredients present in them.
While their skincare products are already so nourishing, I also found their limited cosmetic range to have a excellent hydrating capabilities. Upon my request, they applied their Skin Caviar Concealer+Foundation(which comes with that cute little brush) on my mother’s face finishing it with a light brush of the compact.
Even just the cosmetics are so hydrating, you can skip the moisturiser altogether. And the sunscreen too, since they contain SPF15.
Here’s how she looked after:
These foundations come in different high and medium coverages with ample shades to choose from.
They have only one bronzer, but it is the one of the best I have used so far. The shade is perfect for most indian skin tones and even though it is glittery, the finish is dewy.
Last, but not the least; I am also in love with their fragrance named Life Threads Gold.
They have a lot more products, but it would take several posts to cover everything up. Skincare is a long-term investment, and I am glad there are brands like these that put in so much effort and research to give us its worth.
My mother felt pampered and loved. So will yours. Go take her out this week, for a little treat, for a little pampering.
Their store is at Palladium, Mumbai.
