LA PRAIRIE CELLULAR SWISS ICE CRYSTAL X SEVIIN

La Prairie has long been known to create extravagant skincare products and provide ageless beauty with the fusion of science, art, and luxury. I was honored and excited to attend the launch of their newly released Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream & Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil at Seviin Tangs Orchard.




The lovely staff from La Prairie and Luxasia :)

The Loft is uber luxe and exclusive. How I wished I could spend an entire afternoon here to rejuvenate in serenity.





LA PRAIRIE CELLULAR SWISS ICE CRYSTAL DRY OIL



Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil, a hydrating, nurturing dry oil containing a precious blend of pure oils and age-delaying extracts strengthens and fortifies your skin to prevent moisture loss and keep skin supple, emitting a natural, healthy glow.

While the benefits of Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil are plentiful, the most obvious is hydration, as oils help create a seal which locks in moisture on skin.  In addition, the youth-preserving Swiss Ice Crystal Complex helps to provide potent anti-oxidant protection.    





How I apply:
  • It can be used AM or PM but I prefer to use it only in the evenings especially because I slept in an air-conditioned environment.
  • After applying my serums, I gently massage the Dry Oil all over my face, neck and décolleté, followed by my moisturiser.
  • Alternatively, you can apply your preferred serum first to clean skin and follow with a blend of 1-2 drops of Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil mixed in with moisturizer of choice; smooth mixture over face, neck and décolleté.
The Dry Oil is light but potent and it also has another surprising benefit! After all, humectants in creams draw water into your skin.  Oils hold water in, so if you use both at the same time, you get the most hydration.
  



LA PRAIRIE CELLULAR SWISS ICE CRYSTAL CREAM

Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream offers a nourishing daily moisturizer with extreme benefits, helping the skin adapt to stress, environment and aging.  The modern formulation – an oil-in-water gel-cream – feels rich but immediately penetrates and turns skin to silk as it revitalizes the complexion and works to fortify your skin’s resilience to life’s increasing aging assaults.  


Formulated with the best that science and nature have to offer, Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream features the youth-preserving Swiss Ice Crystal Complex (comprised of Saxifraga Oppositifolia, Soldanella Alpina and Swiss Snow Algae), which fortifies your skin’s resistance and adaptability to a world of daily skin aging extremes.  In addition, it contains the anti-aging powers of Tissue Guidance Matrix and two plant cell extracts based on stem cell technology to assist with skin renewal, Hyaluronic Acid to deeply moisturize and photo-reflecting agents to help skin glisten.


How I apply:
  • I use this in the evenings as the final step of my skincare routine. Smooth over face and neck after cleansing and toning.
  • For enhanced moisturization and barrier protection, blend a drop or two of Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil with Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream.
Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream is also an excellent “recovery cream” for stressed skin (a result of dermatological procedures, change in climate or excess traveling).
The age-delaying cream is deeply moisturising but may be too rich for my oily skin-type and would probably be more suited for someone with dry skin or an older age group. However, I highly recommend using the oil as it boosts the efficacy of my moisturisers.

I've never used an oil prior to this, so the Dry Oil is new and refreshing to me. I would have thought it would be too rich and potent for my skin-type but it doesn't feel greasy after long periods of time.




Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil (30ml, SGD500) and Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream (50ml, SGD500) are now available at all La Prairie counters.
