Welcome to ‘Til The Last Drop: a bi-monthly column in which I, CF Beauty Editor, Olivia Bennett, share my review of a favourite cult product that I (truly) use to the last drop. This week’s featured product is La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream.
I’m messaged by friends and family, at all hours of the day, with recommendation requests for everything from “the budget gel moisturiser that works with combination skin” to “the hard-hitting eye cream that will make Botox a last resort”, and queries on “whether X, Y, and Z from the current trending brand are REALLY worth the hype”.
Such incessant inquiries sparked this column, where I’ll cover best-selling names alongside under-the-radar brands to note. You’ll hear about blow-the-budget products that live up to their hefty price tag and the purse-friendly steals which I unashamedly turn to time and again.
No need to text me, I’ll be sharing all my intel with you right here every other week. Tune in.
The sales of eye products, and the interest in cosmetic treatments have sky-rocketed over the past 18 months, in no small way influenced by mask wearing, with our eyes consequently taking greater prominence. There are a multitude of eye-cream formulas available from affordable steals to super luxe, and that is where La Prairie comes in. Yes it’s pricey, but boy does it deliver. La Prairie is synonymous with luxury, combining Swiss technology with expert know-how. Harnessing the power of Caviar Premier as well as the brand’s exclusive Cellular Complex, the effect of this efficacious cream is: dramatically lifted and firmed eyes. In addition, puffiness is diminished, and skin is softened and hydrated. The formula itself is decadently rich but when delicately patted on it sinks in seamlessly. It adds a super-indulgent element to your skincare regime: scoop up a little silky cream with the silver spatula to maintain potency.
