Field Test – La Prairie Cellular Power Infusion and White Caviar (Part 1 – The Products)

There are lots of ways to fight the signs of aging. Medical spa treatments use lasers, peels, and medicines to remove dark spots and wrinkles. These treatments can be expensive ($250-$500+ per office visit); involve down time (time for the skin on your face to recover from the treatment); some ingredients, such as hydroquinone, used in the treatments are harsh or have scary side effects; and often a series of treatments is needed to get the desired results.

I’ve been on the hunt for home treatments that provide professional results. Almost every cosmetic line in boutiques, department stores, and drug stores claims to have products that reduce wrinkles and fade dark spots. Most over-the-counter home treatments promise significant results, but often don’t deliver. In my experience, they work best for preventative maintenance, but don’t significantly transform or restore the skin.

These are the best I’ve found so far in my quest, and reKinerase PhotoFacials Sun Damage Reversal System does a good job reducing wrinkles and fine lines and restoring glowing skin. Mary Kay’s Timewise Even Complexion Essence does a good job lightening age spots without harsh ingredients. Note, dark spots are tricky and hard to fade because they begin deep in the skin layers. Fading them takes time (about 8 weeks) and takes committed daily application.

The “word on the street” is that the most effective over the counter treatments for wrinkles and age spots come from La Prairie. La Prairie Cellular Power Infusion reverses fine lines and wrinkles and White Caviar fades dark spots. Yeow! They are pricey!! But if they work, the price of a full treatment is about the same as one office visit for a medispa treatment, so it may be worth the price tag. That’s what I plan to find out.

La Prairie has generously offered samples of these two treatments for me to try. So, I’ll be testing them out to see how they work and posting before and after pictures along the way, so you can come along for the ride. My field test begins next week (May 18).

Here’s what I’ll be using:

La Prairie White Caviar (Illuminating Serum, Illuminating Cream, and Illuminating Eye Serum)

I’d love to hear if you’ve used them and about your experiences with them and other anti-aging products you’ve tried.

  1. Do facials! Have evyedbory wash their face, then have evyedbory exfoliate with a facial scrub (or sugar mixed with oil), then fill a few large bowls with boiling hot water, drop in rose petals (or a few drops of an essential oil) and evyedbory takes turns and holds their face over the bowl and drapes a towel over it-keep it there for 10 minutes. Then, you can make a face mask bar for evyedbory and they can pick the one for their skin type.Dry skin: oatmeal with mashed banana or mashed avocado (the avocado will brown so mix it with a small amount of lemon juice if it’s going to be out for a while)Oily skin: egg whitesMake sure evyedbory uses an astringent or facial toner afterwards to remove any excess mask or scrub, and then evyedbory can put on face lotion and their skin will glow!Exfoliate legs, hands and feet by mixing sugar with oil (any kind will work, but olive oil and canola or vegetable oil is best). Then, have evyedbory put on some heavy duty body butter on their hands and feet, put plastic bags on them and sit for a while-this will intensely moisturize plus the scrub will remove dead skin to make everything extra smooth! Then, display a bunch of polish and evyedbory can paint each others nails. Everybody will look beautiful!
