(Only slightly related to) La Prairie Anti Aging Eye & Lip Contour Cream

A while ago I went along to House of Fraser on London's Oxford Street to be introduced to La Prairie products, both new releases and old favourites.  The event was lovely - the ladies from both the PR firm and La Prairie were helpful, providing in depth explanations into the La Prairie sub-ranges, and smearing creams on any available bits of skin so we could feel the textures.  BUT.  Most of the bloggers at the event were in their 20s or early 30s.  And this product, one of the new launches, costs a staggering £126 for a 20ml pot.  Are we the right people to be testing what is a very expensive, very high science anti-aging product?  Probably not.

I've been using it for a few weeks now, and my eye area does indeed look smoother, my fine crow's feet do look diminished, and my skin is undoubtedly very well hydrated and very firm.  I'm just not sure that the effects on my limited wrinkles really provide enough of a test for this product.  So I'll be handing my other La Prairie eye cream, one from the classic range, over to my Mum for a proper test.

On the upside, your £126 also includes some pretty cool packaging - this little wand comes with the cream, and you're supposed to take a dab out of the pot and apply it to the skin using the wand rather than your fingers. The wand is metallic, and therefore has a lovely cooling effect when you apply the cream with it.  Oh, and it's MAGNETIC, so you can't lose it - it sticks to the lid of the pot.  Very, very cool.
