La Prairie is a European brand of skin care products from the German conglomerate Beiersdorf. The brand originated in the 1970s, when the first products under this label were introduced on the skin care market.
The company claims that the product formulas are very unique because they are based on patented research conducted at the Clinique La Prairie (a spa) in the Swiss Alps. Nowadays, the brand has grown enormously, with moisturizers, facial masks, serums, sunblocks, eye products and more.
The La Prairie brand is even known to be sold worldwide, including in Europe, the United States, Russia and South Africa. Because of the high price of many La Prairie products, consumers with a limited skin care budget are advised to contact their dermatologist or skin care specialist.
The company offers a wide range of products for different skin care needs and classifies its products on skin conditions, types of products and even collections.
Because of the price of these items and the wide range of products, it's a good idea to talk to a specialist who has experience with La Prairie products and can help you select the best one for your needs.
The La Prairie moisturizer series offers almost two dozen face and night creams. For example, White Caviar Illuminating Moisturizing Cream is a special cream designed to moisturize the skin and reduce discoloration (such as dark spots on the face).
On the other hand, Cellular Cream Platinum Rare is a moisturizer that focuses on tightening the skin by including peptides in the formulation. 720 for only one ounce. In the La Prairie Serum collection Skin Caviar Liquid Lifting is a product that is popular with many consumers.
This is a small bottle of small beads that resemble caviar. The beads are collected in a small applicator and then pressed to release the serum. However, some consumers have complained that the process is inefficient because part of the product remains in the applicator.
525 for just 1.7 ounces, this La Prairie product can be a very expensive experiment for some consumers. The company currently offers a large number of products with a wide range of ingredients designed to soothe, hydrate and restore the skin.
However, the basic chemicals in most formulations include ginseng root, horsetail extract and glycoproteins. The horsetail extract in La Prairie formulations would reduce the formation of wrinkles by strengthening the connective tissue of the skin.
It is believed that this extract achieves such improvements because it contains silicas, which are chemical chains believed to be the strength of the integral cell structure. It is believed that the glycoproteins in La Prairie skin care products improve cellular communication and the ginseng root regenerates the skin cells and improves the elasticity of the skin.
In addition to these basic ingredients, it is also said that La Prairie products contain gold, platinum and caviar. Although caviar can improve skin health through its organic and nutrient-rich properties, it is still questionable whether gold and platinum have a significant impact on skin health.
Although the content of these precious metals in La Prairie's products is very low, the prices of the products are certainly influenced by them and the demanding consumer has to ask whether these metals are worth the cost.
Of course it seems luxurious to distribute small particles of gold and platinum on your skin, but if your skin care budget is limited... is it worth the luxury? When it comes to reviews of La Prairie, many consumers are very satisfied with the results of the product and do not dispute the effectiveness of the creams or serums.
However, the majority of the negative reviews focus on the price of the product. Although the reviewers seem to have no problems with the actual ingredients of La Prairie products, for many there is a big difference between the effectiveness of the products and the price.
Since La Prairie products can be very expensive for the average consumer, it is important to find an authorized dealer before you buy. 600 for less than two ounces, there is an important incentive for the production of counterfeit products.
