The latest eye cream from La Prairie, their White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire, is not just visually stunning, it has some unique properties that could make you more stunning as well! There are plenty of eye creams out there including some really excellent ones from La Prairie. So why buy this one? Actually, there are plenty of reasons.
Before you even get to the benefits for your eyes, the La Prairie White Caviar Eye Extraordinare product will make you feel incredibly pampered. For a beauty product, the presentation really makes an impact. It’s something like lifting a Birkin bag out of the box. You can get a handbag anywhere, but this one is special in the way it makes you feel. It’s the same with this eye cream.
The outer black and white sleeve reveals a pristine white cube, Inside is the silver box that leads to the eye cream in a stunning silver and white airtight pump jar, nestled within on a silver platform. The substantial silver top flips open to reveal a mirror. It’s on its own silver tray. And then there’s the pièce de résistance: the silver and white rolling eye tool that helps distribute the cream into your skin and provide lymphatic drainage.
How to Use White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire:
Flip the lid and press down on the airtight pump which delivers a perfect portion for both eyes. Using a pat and press motion, apply the cream around your under-eye area to the temple and up to the outer brow. The cream feels rich and super-soft. You will feel a nice cooling as it goes to work and very quickly you’ll see a brighter more luminous under eye area.
Then, use the silver and white “pearl” roller to help absorb the cream into your skin and aid in lymphatic drainage which also helps to de-puff that under-eye area. You can use this special tool whenever you feel like it, and you’ll have it forever if you take care of it.
The Amazing Eye Cream:
However, the packaging and skincare ritual means little if White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire doesn’t do something special for your skin as well. Fortunately, it does.
You’ll feel the cream cooling and working immediately. Without getting too technical, the lightly floral-scented formula works hard to help illuminate your under-eye area. As you age, the pigments that help to illuminate your under-eye area decrease and along with it, the natural luminosity of your skin. You can see this, particularly where your skin is thin, in the eye area.
What’s in It:
Partner this with under-eye bags and puffiness and wrinkles, and your face looks older than it needs to be. What makes this eye cream special is that White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire has Lumidose along with Golden Caviar, Ginseng, and Licorice root extracts. Without getting too technical, Lumidose is an illuminating molecule that can help to inhibit Tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for the formation of melanin.
By targeting grey, brown, yellow, red, and violet that can dull skin, White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire can boost the reflection of light and make your eye area look brighter and younger. The Golden Caviar Extract particularly helps to increase collagen production and help your own skin to reflect light as well. La Prairie’s Exclusive Cellular Complex adds biotech benefits to help restore firmness and elasticity so skin is smoother, firmer, lifter, and of course, more youthful.
White Caviar Eye Extraordinaire Is Pure Pleasure:
Protect Your Skin & Your Investment:
I can’t say it enough times. If you don’t want to look old before your time, use sunblock! La Prairie suggests their Cellular Swiss UV Protection Veil SPF 50 in the morning and repeat application during the day (read our 2017 review).
The Bottom Line:
While it’s true that the $550 price tag is hefty, the cream provides the kind of illumination and skincare benefits you can’t find anywhere else. It’s a luxury that will pay beauty benefits for a long time. And, the little ceramic pearl and silver roller, and silver tray makes a fabulous display to admire every day.
