La Prairie is one of my top two favorite brands when it comes to skincare products. It’s a luxury brand and their products have amazingly high products especially in Europe but indeed they have great products that can deliver the exact promised results.
I used their products for almost 4 years and my skin feels spoiled everyday and it’s showing. Today I wanna talk to you about La Prairie Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex which I received it as a 5 ml /0.17 fl oz sample together with the purchase of my favorite La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye Cream SPF 15 (review & photos). Since the normal La Prairie eye cream contains 15 ml / 0.5 oz and lasts me about 6 months this sample was enough for testing and reviewing. I used it for a month before I postpone its application for testing another eye cream. It still has a good amount of product left inside.
La Prairie Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex (15 ml /0.5 oz for $135.00 even up to €150.00 in Europe) is a transparent gel rapidly absorbed into the skin. Is dedicated for sensitive skin and can be applied under the eyes, continuing over the eyelid delivering the effect of a mini eyelift.
I previously used La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye Cream SPF 15 and for about 4 years I’ve been using only La Prairie or La Mer eye creams so I can’t say I noticed a dramatically change in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, because I’ve been fighting this battle with similar or even better products and I’m happy to win so far. I did experience a nourishing and re-energizing feeling around the eye zone. It helps improving skin tone and texture and the eye area is hydrated for the entire day.
I also used Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex at night and in the morning my skin was soft, hydrated, refreshed without any signs of fatigue and stress. I remember when I first used a La Prairie eye cream after the Clinique All About Eyes and the results were amazing even after 2-3 days.
This amazing gel with caviar extracts helps reduce under-eye puffiness so if you are predisposed on having dark circle, eye puffiness or sagging skin around the eye area, this gel could really help you out by improving the skin condition. It is also an anti-aging eye cream which will visible minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Usually most women start using anti-aging products after the age of 30′ when the lines and wrinkles become more visible but is more difficult to try and erase them when they are already there. I honestly start using cream with antioxidants properties since I was 18 and follow with anti-aging creams around my 26 birthday.
Another plus for this eye cream is that it helps increase the staying power of eye makeup, almost like an eye primer. I experimented this cream as an eye primer without using my usual Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer and it worked wonderful. The eyeshadows have a long lasting power, the concealer and powder didn’t crease so while I’m using this gel I don’t need another primer.
My final thoughts are that it’s a great anti-aging eye product, not to dramatic and can be used to prevent fine lines and wrinkles, works great as an eye primer, firms and re-energizez sensitive skin around the eyes leaving it hydrated for the entire day. The price although is far on the expensive side and not many can afford such a mini lift luxury eye cream.
