The Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection by La Prairie

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Every girl needs a little luxury in their lives.  Some opt for a fabulous pair of designer shoes, others for a great statement necklace. While I'm a major lover of fashion, luxurious skin is at the top of my game!  How do I achieve this you ask?  Well, La Prairie is the ultimate in luxury skincare.  There's a reason why their products are a cult favorite amongst many woman.  Truth is, once you get your hands on some of these beauties, you'll quickly realize exactly what sets them apart from the rest.  I swear by my La Prairie Essence of Caviar Eye Complex!  Well, today I'm especially excited to tell you about their newest creation launching in February!  Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream and Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil are innovative and feel out of this world on my skin!  According to La Prairie, the inspiration for the line were two seemingly fragile plants and one small algae, which manage to grow and flourish miles high in the Swiss Alps. La Prairie claims to have harnessed their extreme survival secrets to create the patent-pending Swiss Ice Crystal Complex, which transfers the properties of its key ingredients to the skin, allowing it too to become more resilient to the daily extremes of life, such as stress, anxiety, pollution, lack of sleep and travel. 

 The inspiration, ingredients and source also underline La Prairie’s long-standing Swiss heritage and legacy.   The first key ingredient is Saxifraga Oppositifolia, or Purple Saxifrage, which grows just below the summit of the ice-covered Dom, one of the highest mountains in Switzerland. The second is Soldanella Alpina, which flourishes on the lower mountain slopes in central Switzerland, up to 3,000 meters above sea level. The final component is Swiss Snow Algae, first used in La Prairie’s Cellular Power Collection.

According to the brand, the Swiss Ice Crystal Complex helps skin adjust to skin-ageing stressors, and supports cell renewal, delivering increased hydration and resilience. Furthermore, the DNA-protecting plant power helps skin to protect itself from the visible signs of accelerated ageing, leaving skin looking younger for longer.

It was love at first swipe for me!  The second these beauties touched my skin I was instantly smitten by the texture and scent.  More importantly, I absolutely loved the way my skin looked and felt after application.  You can wear them simultaneously, though I love to add a few drops of the oil on to the cream as I find that together, these work best for me!  If you're an instant gratification girl like me, you will absolutely adore this new La Prairie launch!

Bonus for all my local beauties... Saks Fifth Avenue in Short Hills, NJ is hosting a launch luncheon to give you first dibs on the La Prairie Cellular Ice Crystals collection before it launches globally! If you'd like to attend this event on Friday, January 24th, be sure to RSVP (973) 315-1208. 

So lets chat!  What's your go-to La Prairie product?  Are you as excited about this launch as I am? 

Thank you so much for reading! XOXO Carla - FMM
