La Prairie is a luxuriant skincare brand originating from Switzerland. It surely belongs to the top-tier brand among the skincare market, more expensive than the double Cs, and it's highly exclusive. I was so honored to be invited to the launch of their new Cellular Power Serum. Guess where the event is:
It's Sky100 Tower on Kowloon side of Hong Kong. Yes, who can go higher than that? Only La Prairie! The launch took place at the foyer of 100th Floor of Sky100 building. Behold your breath when scrolling down the gorgeous seaviews and pictures from up on cloud nine!
The picture above is to the West of Hong Kong, the pic below is the side facing the Victoria Harbour, I did some enhancement with the lighting of the below pic so you could see the buildings clearly.
Ok, enough sightseeing and let's talk about the the launch.
La Prairie had invited Peter Find - the executive chef at the Ritz Carlton hotel to teach us about super-foods that help to enhance your skin. Scroll down and prepare to drool. Hello caviar, fresh seaweed, strawberries, red grapes and salmon!
The amazing part of the snacks he made is that they're all bite-sized! Absolutely guilt-free indulgence and every bite is filled with skin-powering anti-aging elements!
Now coming to the star of this launch - the Cellular Power Serum on the left.
It is the latest technology breakthrough by the scientists at La Prairie. It is formulated with Swiss Snow Algae, Phyto Stem Cell Extract, Tissue Guidance Matrix and Skin Renewal Peptide. The powerful ingredients are sourced from Giant Knotweed, Blue Microalgae (hence the slightly blue tint in the serum you are about to see later), Heart Leaf Globe Daisy, Blue Lotus and Resvertrol.
The new serum is targeted for first lines on the skin. It offers protection and defense by activating the skin's regeneration and recovery ability. The powerful ingredients will help the skin to fortify its strength and resilience towards aging elements we encounter in the environment.
Now let me show you the actual serum and my thoughts on it. The bottle is silver in color and comes in a 50ml bottle. I used two pumps for my whole face after applying my toner and before moisturizer. It sinks in quickly and doesn't leave a trace. My skin instantly felt smoother. The blue 'windows' on the bottle allows you to see the inside. Look at the last two photos I took, once the serum was applied, the surface of my hand became smoother and the area where I applied the serum - the surface lines became almost invisible, say if you compared with the lower part of my hand in the same pic. The complex formula of this serum helps the skin to reconstruct and boost its immunity to anti-aging elements and help to fight aging.
Bottomline: Amazing product that tackles the effect of first lines and gives your skin an extra immunity and anti-aging boost. If you're wondering what to get for Mother's Day, this will be it.
