Currently Loving: Beauty Products with Ice Crystal and Pure Gold
The search for the latest and the best in skincare is never ending. That’s because there’s always something new being researched and developed in the beauty industry — especially in the case of anti-aging products. And when it comes to beauty, I must admit it’s difficult to choose or stick to just one brand.
But let me share with you something: I become loyal to certain beauty and skincare brands only after having used them for at least 6 to 8 months. I believe that in that span of time, a good product (one worth being loyal to) should have already delivered its promise and the results should be clearly visible.
On top of my trusted beauty list is Swiss skincare expert, La Prairie. (If you have been reading my blog for some time now, you would know that I have written about this many times and how I swear by it!)
Just recently, I was invited by La Prairie at the launch of their newest products that are once again, set to create a higher standard in beauty and skincare.
Here’s a bit of trivia : Did you know that it was my very own mother who taught me how to take care of my skin from early on? In fact, it was she who introduced me to La Prairie! 🙂 Being very conscientious about skincare herself, she gave me all the product samples she got after her every purchase! Suffice to say that this brand has truly impressed me with real and long-lasting results!
These new anti-aging products from La Prairie are truly luxurious and effective, but definitely worth the investment. Take a look:
La Prairie’s Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Serum and Transforming Cream SPF 30
The Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal line of La Prairie has been one of my favorites. I’ve used its different products to my satisfaction over the years. This line features the Swiss Ice Crystal Complex, which works to restore the skin’s resilience, keeping it young, and able to resist environmental stressors and of course, the aging effects of time.
I am now using two newly released products from this line: the Transforming Cream SPF 30 and the Serum.
First in my new routine is the Cellular Swiss Crystal Ice Serum. Modern life is filled with so much stress (in between mummy duties, work, and more responsibilities…), which do not help when we are trying to hang on to the qualities of youth.
This silky, skin-replenishing serum works against fine lines, dryness, and skin dullness caused by environmental stress. It is fortified with Winter Daphne, a purified plant cell extract which has curative benefits, boosts microcirculation acts, and strengthens the skin’s protecting barrier.
The second product from this line I am loving is the Cellular Swiss Crystal Ice Tranforming Cream SPF 30. It works as it corrects the complexion’s color by brightening the skin and making the skin tone even, in a weightless, and yes, buildable manner for a flawless look.
This product promises “self-adjusting color-correcting pigments that identify the missing colors in the complexion that create dullness and balance them back immediately.” This one has Daisy Flower Extract to make the skin look really vibrant!
Don’t we have those days when fatigue and daily stresses make our skin look dull and well, lackluster? So I say, this product is great to have in anyone’s beauty kit! Plus, I love the fact that it has UV protection — something so important nowadays (especially if you live in a tropical country like ours) when we are fighting the signs of aging!
La Prairie’s Cellular Radiance Perfecting Fluide Pure Gold
The other new product line that was introduced to us recently is the Cellular Radiance Perfecting Fluide Pure Gold from La Prairie‘s Radiance Collection.
“La Prairie scientists feature the precious metal in various iterations within the Radiance Collection, which helps reignite skin’s youthful radiance with rare gold ingredients – the essence of opulence – to help revitalize and perfect skin’s appearance, restoring lustrous texture and tone.”
The formula is unique and the texture is so silky, that when I tried it the first couple of times, I already felt how this precious ingredient (the “gold” in the product), really helped my skin achieve that flawless perfection. It made me look as if I were basking under the glow of a golden sunset!
This product is also known for its collagen-boosting golden peptide, which helps improve skin quality below the surface — where radiance begins, for smoother-looking skin that reflects light at its best. I say, this is my version of investing in “liquid gold”!
These skincare products may cost more than the other commercially available beauty brands out there, but I also know they are more potent and are more effective than the rest. I’ve always been a big believer in investing in my skin from early on, so this is something I really do take seriously. In the long run, because the products I choose deliver the real and long-lasting results I want, I find that I only need to use a little at a time. Thus, all my investment will turn out to be worth it after all!
