LA PRAIRIE SKIN CAVIAR EYE LIFT

EYES IN FOCUS

SKIN CAVIAR EYE LIFT

At La Prairie, the boundaries of innovation are constantly being pushed, the potency of caviar science is always being enhanced and new realms of its potential are perpetually being explored. With an infusion of Caviar Premier, the latest caviar incarnation developed by La Prairie scientists, the eye becomes the focus of La Prairie’s Swiss science. Caviar’s full lifting potential is harnessed for the first time to revive, raise and redefine the gaze.

La Prairie introduces Skin Caviar Eye Lift, the first eye-opening serum for the whole eye area, including brows – the gentle yet effective answer to eye lifting and firming concerns. Skin Caviar Eye Lift is a potent combination of two formulas enriched with Caviar Premier and La Prairie’s Exclusive Cellular Complex, which uses cutting-edge biotechnological research to give new life and energy back to the very cells where beauty is born.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Eye Lift

THE INNOVATION

The innovation that defines Skin Caviar Eye Lift is not limited to its cutting-edge formula. Inspired by the vial design of Skin Caviar Liquid Lift and its visible caviar beads, this latest eye area treatment is an homage to the potency and indulgence of the La Prairie’s iconic gold caviar beads. With a press of the activating pump, the two formulas – one encapsulated in caviar beads, the other in an innovative tourmaline-pink gel-cream emulsion, each housed in separate chambers to maintain their purity – are drawn up to a patent- pending mechanism that freshly blends them with each use. The result is a delightfully textured serum that melts into skin with a refreshing touch and an immediate tensing sensation.

Skin Caviar Eye Lift brings together audacious science, cutting-edge technology and the indulgence of caviar in one elevated creation for the eyes.

WHAT’S PROMISED

The results are simply unprecedented. Using innovative algorithms specifically developed for the study of Skin Caviar Eye Lift’s data, the scientists at La Prairie found that with regular use, over time the eyes are opened while the eye contours and eyebrows appear redefined. The upper lids look tightened while crow’s feet appear visibly reduced. Lower lids appear smoothed and under-eye bags and puffiness look diminished. With daily use, the complete eye area appears lifted and firmed. The gaze is raised, revived, redefined – reawakened with a new appearance, with a new perspective.

THE RITUAL

The Skin Caviar eye area ritual begins with perfectly clean skin. A few drops of Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex helps sooth and prepare the eye area for the treatments to follow.

Gently pressing on the pump of Skin Caviar Eye Lift activates the blending mechanism and releases a single dose. Starting at the inner corner of the eye, the silky formula is dotted along the eyelid crease to the outer corner. As the dabbing gesture continues along the eye’s contours, a pleasant lifting sensation takes place, adding a delightful moment of indulgence to the morning or evening skincare ritual.

Follow with Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream to complete the Skin Caviar eye area ritual for an indulgent experience that puts the eyes in focus.

Clarins Rose Radiance Cream

ROSE RADIANCE CREAM

Instant glow, lifting, replenishing

In its expert formula, Clarins Laboratories have combined the
most effective instant radiance-boosters with the best
replenishing key ingredients. What makes it really irresistible?
Its pink colour! A bold shade that reminds us that you can feel
young, vibrant and radiant… at any age!

Designed for women age 50+ who know their own true beauty Clarins created Rose Radiance Cream. A skin-enhancing cream to replenish, exfoliate and beautify the skin and every morning, revive its natural, rosy radiance. But what is radiance in mature skin? It’s an undeniable yet subtle glow. With this in mind, Rose Radiance Cream consists of three expert ingredients that combine their radiance-boosting properties to deliver a smooth skin texture, luminous complexion and an even skin tone.

SMOOTH SKIN TEXTURE

HIBISCUS FLOWER ACIDS

Famed for its beauty, the hibiscus sabdariffa flower hides a real treasure: flower acids, such as those used in Rose Radiance Cream, which offer a guaranteed content of exfoliating pyruvic acid. Incorporated in a skin care and applied to the skin, they prevent the accumulation of dead skin cells which can dull the skin and make it rough. Their plus? Gentle exfoliation. By protecting the epidermis, they do not cause dehydration or irritation.

A smooth skin texture is achieved with the gentle biological exfoliation of hibiscus flower acids. Very gentle hibiscus sabdariffa flower acids encourage the quick and delicate removal of dead skin cells, to boost complexion radiance, encourage skin renewal and preserve a tighter skin texture. The smoother and more supple the skin, the more even it is and the more it reflects the light.

EVEN SKIN TONE

VITAMIN C

Even skin tone: the tinted texture and a vitamin C derivative
On the skin, the vibrant colour of the texture tones down, leaving a subtle shade of pink with an instant healthy glow effect. Day after day, the vitamin C derivative helps reduce the look of dark spots to give a perfectly even complexion. Finally, the cream’s fresh fragrance with notes of blossoming rose gives Rose Radiance Cream a delicate feminine touch.

REPLENISH SKIN AND REGAIN TONE

ORGANIC HARUNGANA EXTRACT

Studies carried out on organic harungana extract have revealed its capacity to reactivate the metabolic functions of the fibroblast and increase the synthesis of collagen fibres. Skin is progressively strengthened, skin slackening slowed and wrinkles and fine lines visibly reduced.

In the formula of Rose Radiance Cream, the replenishing properties of organic harungana extract and an anti-ageing peptide are combined with the plumping effect of line-filling pearls. At all levels, skin is replenished and more toned. The fuller look of more youthful skin is restored, a key factor for better reflection of the light.

HYDRA-BIOME PROBIOTIC SUPERDOSE FACE MASK // KORRES

REAL GREEK YOGURT IN A SUPERDOSE FACE MASK

HYDRA-BIOME PROBIOTIC SUPERDOSE FACE MASK

Life is stressful. Late nights at work, screen time overload, polluted air, one too many drinks…it all takes a toll on our bodies and minds. We all know what comes next – skin acts out – you can see it and feel it. It’s time to feed your skin the comfort it’s craving. Experience deeply nourished, balanced, healthier-looking skin after just 15 minutes of use. 

Meet your stressed-skin savior: KORRES HYDRA-BIOME™ Probiotic Superdose Face Mask. This first-ever probiotic superdose mask made with real Greek Yoghurt instantly comforts and relieves stressed-looking skin by maintaining skin microbiome balance.

SKIN’S MICROBIOME

Skin’s unique microbiome – the fragile ecosystem of microorganisms that work together to protect and shield skin against stressors – is taking center stage in the beauty universe. This living protective layer is so delicate that it can easily become imbalanced from the stressors we are exposed to every day. Everyone’s skin reacts to stress – but how it reacts is different for each person. Skin might look red or feel dry, tight, itchy and exhausted.

ABOUT THE MASK

This mask is a multi-tasker with clinically proven anti-pollution protection, a time-released hydration complex and a long-lasting cooling effect, created by the natural superfood, Greek Yoghurt. It continues working beyond application, with anti-pollution protection to help skin survive urban stress caused by environmental pollutants. 

This superfood mask is a super quick solve for post-party days, all-nighters, long hours in the sun, air pollution, and all those stressors that throw your skin off balance. Use 2-3 times per week, or daily if it’s one of those weeks!

WHAT IS FORMULATED WITH

Formulated with cutting-edge microbiome-friendly technology, HYDRA–BIOME™ Probiotic Superdose Face Mask works in as little as 15 minutes to maintain skin microbiome balance and transform stressed-looking skin into a comforted, glowing complexion after one use.

The unique formula includes:

Real Greek Yoghurt, a Greek superfood: delivers an instant cooling sensation along with deep moisturising and nourishing action
Hydra-Biome™: cutting edge microbiome-friendly technology clinically proven to maintain your skin’s invisible microbiome balance, returning skin to its healthy-looking form
Pre- and probiotics that help maintain skin microbiome balance, while delivering nourishing and smoothing effect
Time-Released Hydration Complex: releases hydration for 48-hours to keep skin feeling bouncy, youthful and energized

Three types of Hyaluronic acid for supreme moisture absorption to help skin look plump and smooth
Bisabolol and Ginger Root Extract to intensely soothe parched skin
A rich blend of Shea Butter, Apricot Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Aloe Vera to nourish and deeply hydrate
Fragrance of 100% natural origin

HOW TO USE IT

Slather a super thick, creamy layer to clean, dry skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse and pat dry to instantly relieve and soothe de-hydrated, sensitive skin while giving it a “healthy” microbiome-friendly superdose. For super quick mask removal, use a wet washcloth. It doubles as a sleeping facial: smooth on a thin layer before bedtime to wake up to plump-looking and well-rested skin.

PRO TIP: Keep the face mask in the fridge and indulge in its extra-cooling effect as the revolutionary formula works its superdose magic!

The secrets behind Crème de La Mer

What began as one man’s journey became transformative experience that would be
whispered about all over the world…
Some say it’s magic. 

Some say it’s science.
Others just believe.

As the groundbreaking skin-care brand turned 50, we reveal the secrets behind the delicate science of Crème’s enduring appeal.


1.  Driven to find a treatment for his own burn scars, it took aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber 12 years and 6,000 experiments with ingredients and time-intensive bio-fermentation to develop the formula for Crème de la Mer. Today, the rarefied mixture has never been more popular.

2.  Each jar of Crème de la Mer is hand-filled within eight hours of the formula’s completion, with the room’s temperature tightly controlled.

3. When La Mer’s sea kelp is harvested in the spring and fall, it’s shipped directly to the lab on ice. Because only the top fronds are used, the plant remains unharmed.

4. To speed up the fermentation process, the Miracle Broth is exposed to pulsating sound waves and light energy from specialized equipment, which intensifies potency. To maintain the integrity of every batch, a small portion of Broth from the previous is added to the next.

5. Known officially as the Miracle Broth, La Mer’s secret sauce is a powerful blend of sea kelp, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, lecithin and vitamins C, E and B12, along with oils of citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower. Fresh limes are hand peeled to maximize the living benefits of the rind, then added as Lime Tea Extract.

Recently, the luxe sea-kelp-based skin-care brand has opened its first spa in the U.S. at the Baccarat Hotel & Residences in Midtown Manhattan. Opulent services—like a bespoke, 90-minute La Mer Baccarat Facial, with a diamond-powder exfoliation and warming facial massage using Baccarat stones—harness the healing energies of the sea to help guests relax.
