I’m not sure how I ended up being interested in La Prairie. I just remembered walking by their counter one day and after striking a conversation with the lovely SA at the counter, I sat down and she patiently took me through the whole range.
I left with a few samples in hand and booked myself a $200 facial that was redeemable on their products.
This is the room located somewhere in David Jones Bourke St, my skin felt really plumped yet refreshed after the 90 minute treatment.
I ended up picking the tonic and emulsion from the marine biology range. To be honest, anything else was too expensive and this sounded more suitable for my skin. The emulsion was $170 and the tonic $100.
The tonic is similar to clarins hydraquench serum and while it looks like a toner, it really is more of an essence / serum. I love the shade of blue (how dreamy) but the packaging is a bit shit. It’s so hard to not get it all over the place when you pour this onto your hands.
The emulsion is definitely hydrating enough for winter but it has to be used in conjunction with the tonic. All in all, 2 pretty decent products but I’m not sure if it’s worth the high price.
I was given a sample of their Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex. I don’t know if it’s just me but I put a thick layer around my under eye and that area does look like it shows improvement. I definitely feel like buying that now!
