I recently was invited to try out la prairie‘s new Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection, and how could I pass that up? la prairie is an extraordinary, luxury skin care brand, best known for pioneering cellular anti-aging skin therapies. Based in Switzerland, this “timeless beauty” company develops revolutionary skincare formulas and cutting edge beauty products. Their latest: Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream and Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil.
I immediately tore into the box, first admiring the pretty packaging, designed to resemble beautiful ice crystals. Nestled inside were the two products. I first tried the cream, since my usual daily beauty regimen includes cleansing and moisturizing. I applied it soon after washing my face with my usual cleanser. The Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream went on smoothly and it felt lightweight on my face and neck. The fragrance was also light, which was great because I prefer moisturizers that aren’t heavily perfumed. Also, a little bit goes a long way. Some other creams you have to slather on in order to keep your skin from drying out, but I only used a few touches of this one and it provided good hydration and coverage – it lasted the entire day! The cream is definitely a product I’d keep in my beauty arsenal.
On a separate day, I tried the Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil. I have heard many of my beauty blogger friends sing the praises of using facial oil, but I had never tried it myself. Oil is the last thing I’d ever think of putting on my face, since my skin is quite oily already! But to my surprise, la prairie’s Dry Oil went on just like the moisturizer: light, smooth and silky, and there were no traces of oiliness on my skin! My face drank it right up!
If you’re looking for lightweight facial moisturizers, I’d highly recommend la prairie’s Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection. It’s a great way to take care of your skin without overwhelming it. Plus, both the Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream and Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil are formulated to build skin’s resistance to daily skin-aging stress, to moisturize and prevent water loss in the skin, to firm in order to minimize the look of wrinkles and to calm, soothe and protect. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!
