If getting a facelift were as simple as applying La Prairie’s “gravity-defiant” lifting serum known as Skin Caviar Liquid Lift, anti-aging combatants would be flocking to covet this miraculous solution. The journey may end quickly however, upon realizing that this miracle in a bottle, described by the company as being a “lifting phenomenon”, ranges between $300-$500. Remember, it is not necessarily the price but the ingredients that prove how effective an anti-aging product will be.
La Prairie claims that the Skin Caviar Liquid Lift is a next-gen product that will defy gravity. The serum, which includes the La Prairie caviar pearls, is supposed to lift and firm the skin while rejuvenating the cells and repairing previous damage. The formula is also supposed to create new cells while the ingredients are said to nourish and protect the skin.
La Prairie considers the Skin Caviar Liquid Lift to be the epitome of science and luxury. Looking at some of the benefits that the serum offers, you may find that they do not vary tremendously from other product lines. La Prairie promises to provide instant lifting and firmness, fill wrinkles, and protect the stem cells. The company suggests that the product will prevent lines and wrinkles from appearing and “help the skin act younger”.
The lifting serum can be used daily in the morning and in the evening after cleansing and toning. La Prairie suggests only using a couple of drops on the face, neck, and décolleté. The Skin Caviar Liquid Lift contains quite a bit of alcohol and Parabens which may cause unwanted irritation to the skin. La Prairie recommends following up the application with one of their moisturizers. If a product contains too much alcohol, it can dry the skin worsening already existing conditions.
Although the lifting serum does include the brand’s signature caviar extract and some AHA’s, the number of Parabens included is significant when placed up against other luxury products. Products with more natural plant and fruit extracts are recommended for people with extremely sensitive skin while still being beneficial for all other skin types.
