February 2011 saw the birth of the La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Système range that targeted common skincare problems, such as pigmentation and discolouration of the skin. At the time, there were only three products: the White Caviar Illuminating Eye Serum, the White Caviar Illuminating Serum and the White Caviar Illuminating Cream. Now, the brand has added 4 more products to the range. Let us all welcome the White Caviar Illuminating Clarifying Lotion, the White Caviar Spot Treatment, the White Caviar Illuminating Hand Cream SPF 15 and the White Caviar Illuminating Eye Cream!
The La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Clarifying Lotion is exclusive to Asia and contains a special refining peptide to remove dead skin cells to allow better absorption of skincare products that follow. Other additional ingredients, including caffeine, biotin and niacinamide, help to reduce the appearance of pores and keep skin shine-free during the day. It’s to be used after your toner and before any other serum and/or moisturiser.
The La Prairie White Caviar Spot Treatment is second on the list of newbies. This targeted age spot eraser comes in the form of a sleek pen with a clicker at the end to release product as and when needed. The angled applicator with the nubby end allows you to first rub the skin gently to exfoliate dead skin cells away before applying the gel. This is the most effective and potent brightener in the White Caviar range, as it contains a whole lot of active ingredients, such as Swiss Garden Crest Sprout Extract and Soy Isoflavone, which prevent further pigmentation and lightening of the skin outside of the targeted zone respectively. So, you’ll get a more even toned complexion with no ugly white spots due to application of excess whitening product!
It’s no secret that our hands are always the first to give our age away. The La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Hand Cream SPF 15 not only exfoliates and activates the renewal of cells, it also contains sun protection to reduce the ageing effect that the sun has on our skin. When applying this product, make sure that you also rub some onto cuticles and the nail beds to moisturise these areas as well.
The La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Eye Cream now accompanies the Eye Serum, which is part of the original White Caviar range. It targets accumulation of melanin (which causes skin discolouration) and cellular debris to stimulate circulation and brighten up the eye area. By relieving fluid retention, this eye cream also helps to fight against puffiness (i.e. eye bags). This product is to be used twice daily, in the mornings and evenings, either alone or on top of the White Caviar Illuminating Eye Serum.
All of these new products also contain beneficial ingredients, namely oligopeptide-68; vitamin C; licorice root extract; golden caviar extracts; La Prairie’s exclusive cellular complex of glycoproteins, horsetail and ginseng extracts; edelweiss extract and lotus extract. In addition, all of the products in the White Caviar range contain three times as many Omega-3 fatty acids than the ones in the Skin Caviar range. This makes them better anti-oxidant boosters, as well as better moisture barriers to promote firming of the skin.
