At the moment, I am completely addicted to La Prairie face care products and took them all on my road trip through the US. This means a lot because the packaging is quite enormous. Of course, it looks very luxurious in your bathroom but if you travel a lot like me, it is not very convenient. I hope that the Swiss brand will come up one day with a travel-size collection. But packing them is worth the effort! The results that you can achieve in a short amount of time are truly amazing.

Here is what I use on a daily basis at the moment:


La Prairie Essence Eye

Instant Firming Eye Energizer

The perfect pick-me-up for the sensitive skin surrounding your eyes, this lightweight, rapidly penetrating gel acts like a mini eyelift. I like to carry it in my handbag when flying to hydrate from time to time the delicate tissue around my eye and to soothe away signs of stress and fatigue.

It also effectively “erases” slight imperfections and helps to increase the staying power of eye makeup. CHF 160.- (15ml)

Cellular Eye CreamCELLULAR RADIANCE EYE CREAM (Day & Night)
Restorative Eye Treatment

Unfortunately, I have very sensitive skin around the eyes and not all eye creams work for me. This one is amazing as it helps to refine, hydrate and smooth the delicate skin surrounding the eyes without being too aggressive. A brightening complex, which combines light diffusers with vitamins and minerals, fills in lines and wrinkles and provides instant luminosity, immediately wiping away signs of stress and fatigue. CHF 412.- (15ml)



Protecting Emulsion

I am using this product for quite a while now (for the previous post, please click here) and I truly love it because it improves my natural glow immediately, while working to help prevent age spots and discoloration over time. Firmness and moisture increase, giving the look and feeling of younger skin while SPF protection helps minimize skin-aging damage. CHF 570 (50ml)


Radiance CreamCELLULAR RADIANCE CREAM (Day & Night)
Time-Correcting Treatment

As you get older, you are loosing unfortunately your youthful luminescence and radiance more and more, especially after being short of sleep or too much time in an airplane. This truly advanced de-aging treatment with unique radiance complex helps to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles while refining and firming the skin and enhances its reflective properties. Your complexion will become more luminous, more radiant from the moment of application. It will help you look as young as you feel. CHF 820.- (50ml)


Cellular Power ChargeCELLULAR POWER CHARGE NIGHT (Night)
Magical things happen at night

I have told about this magic potion for your skin already in April (please click here for the previous post and the detailed information). It is no joke, it helps you to turn back the clock overnight by taking advantage of your skins natural resting state to perform necessary recovery functions. CHF 544 (40ml)


Airbrush your face

Designed to create shimmery accents to contour and highlight any area of the face, this unique formula is flattering on all skin tones. This silky, lightweight fluid enhances the natural skin tone with a brightened luminosity and creates a “soft focus” effect to blur the look of lines & wrinkles with the help of an invisible light diffuser. It may be worn alone, or blended with your favourite foundation. CHF 72.- (30ml)
