The ultimate luxury.
La Mer’s pride is the Creme de La Mer; and La Prairie has its Skin Caviar Luxe Cream.
For Cle de Peau, its jewel is the anti-ageing La Creme.
The pink jar (pictured above) is a limited edition launched in 2012 to mark the brand’s 30th anniversary.
The updated La Creme, which hits stores in March, comes in a jar carved like a faceted diamond.
The cream is as rich and nourishing, but it literally melts on warm skin and sinks right into it.
There is no waxiness like most rich creams, and the after-feel is a satiny finish. Skin looks dewy and feels more supple.
No need to warm the product between warm hands; just apply and press into skin.
A little bit – a pea-sized amount – goes a long way.
Perfect for wintry conditions, as well as to veil skin in an air-conditioned room at night.
Made to tone skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, the new cream contains silk and pearl extracts, a version of retinol, rosemary extract, and the brand’s signature brightening ingredient 4MSK.
The cream made my skin look visibly brighter, clearer and firmer after a week.
It does not come cheap, but a cream that works is worth investing in.
