Diamonds, a private island, a one-of-a-kind masterpiece… the definition of luxury comes in myriad forms. But strangely enough, a chef and a beauty lover—two individuals who might seem completely different—may have the same answer: Caviar. A culinary delicacy that has been a symbol of discerning taste for centuries, caviar has equally indulgent effects on skin, as Swiss beauty brand, La Prairie discovered 30 years ago.
The story of La Prairie’s Skin Caviar started in 1987, with the launch of Dermo Beads. This was the beauty world’s first introduction to these plump little spheres that burst with rare restorative powers from the nutrient-rich matrix of caviar—a skincare breakthrough that reverses the effects of environmental damage for tighter, younger-looking skin. This industry-changing formula launched what would be one of the most advanced luxury beauty brands around—and led to the development of the coveted Skin Caviar Luxe Cream.
Fast forward three decades, La Prairie has remastered its masterpiece that is the Skin Caviar Luxe Cream with Caviar Premier, a newly formed extract that harnesses caviar’s full anti-ageing potential using components that were previously impossible to isolate. Combining this magnified caviar prowess with La Prairie’s Exclusive Cellular complex, this creation boasts unparalleled lifting and firming superpowers. The result? A younger-looking mien that is richly supple, taut and toned, with a lot less fine lines.
While the formula has been remastered, the classic design codes of the Skin Caviar masterpiece remain untouched: The signature cobalt blue colour; the minimalist Helvetica typography; and the silver-capped geometrical glass jar, inspired by the Bauhaus movement, which evokes precision and purity.
As if being an elixir of youth wasn’t luxurious enough, the application process of this last step of skincare is a true sensorial experience. Massaging this velvety cream onto skin allows for deeper penetration and relaxation, all while you take deep breaths of its enveloping floral fragrance. This, before you open your eyes to an instantly softer complexion imbued with renewed radiance, while skin undergoes a total transformation to become more toned and lifted day after day.
