I use La Prarie's cellular eye moisturizer spf 15 the so-called 'smart eye cream' and I'm very happy with it.
It doesn't give me millia, it's not greasy, and it moisturizes nicely.

For me, the sensitive and unpredictable skin type, La prairie I can use one a month, means that I use in my facial regular. When it comes to daily routine, la prairie is not good for me.

A week after facial using La prairie, my skin become smooth, firm and looks healthy. I really love my look.

I thought La Prairie was exclusively for women older than 99% of everyone here It seems I was wrong

*bump* I just ordered La Prairie's Cellular treatment and now I am starting to worry it might not be for me.

Is it oil-free?

I just recieved an email from them saying all the products they carry have oil in them . I still might try a small bit of it and see....but I hate gambling with my skin.

They have a very good foundation which is in the same time a concealer,it's called Skin Caviar concealer foundation, it's a bit grassy for oily skin,but with some powder,it's just wonderful,I never have seen such as foundation,though it's very expensive for a foundation 150euros or 180US$!

It's been two weeks and.....my skin looks amazing! I am so glad I bought this A few spots appeared around nose/chin, but they were very small and the makeup covered the so well you couldn't even tell :p. My skin is very soft, smooth and glowing. It's perfect for the dry weather too. There is a fragrance in it, but it is the oil they use....I can't think of the name now, I will look it up later. Anyway, two thumbs up!!

I have tried a sample of some cream (dont recall the name) IT WAS MARVELOUS!
And the lipsticks are devine. Not too many colors but the texture is wonderful.

i LIVE for La Prairie. i've used almost everything. their cleansers, toners (i hate alcohol-free toners) cellular treatment serums, day and night creams, microdermabrasion, masks, eye creams, even their skin caviar foundation (was bought on a whim...returned it because i have such fabulous skin and didnt want to cover it up)

Their products are very concentrated, and you need to use literally just the smallest amounts they recommend. That might be why people end up thinking their products are oily, or that their skin turns oily, from overuse. i use the skin caviar luxe cream at night, and since it retails for $650 (it was a gift) i use it so sparingly. i have sensitive skin too, and cant live without their Anti-Redness Nurturing Cream. it retails for $175 and i'm usually out of it after 4 months which means i overuse it but it makes any irritation i might experience from shaving disappear and my skin is left glowing.

LOVE and LIVE for La Prairie.

i totally agree. you're suppose to use a damp sponge for light application and your fingers for medium coverage. I tried just applying with my fingers and it was too heavy. I switched to a damp sponge and it was perfect.

Tomorrow I'm purchasing their Retexturizing Booster with Glycolic Acid and their Cellular Softening and Balancing Lotion. I used to be so faithful to La Prairie and then strayed for about a year or so and now I'm obsessed again since using the Retexturizer serum and seeing instant glow in my face. The glycolic acid is in the top 5 ingredients, and you need only two pumps for your whole face.
Someone else should reply to this thread so I didnt bump it for nothing.
