The Best La Prairie Products That Dermatologists Splurge On, Too
Money can't buy happiness, but the best La Prairie products certainly come close. The Switzerland-born line offers some of the most luxurious products in the world, but unlike buzzy, here-today-gone-tomorrow lines that pop up seemingly daily, these products have science, quality ingredients, and dermatologists' seal of approval to back them up.
Since its start in 1931, La Prairie's has formulated its products with high concentration of active ingredients, a combination of science, and rare ingredients including platinum, gold, white caviar, and caviar which all serve as added investment in your skin, Dr. Michelle Henry, Clinical Instructor of Dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College, tells TZR.
Many of the products also contain microalgae extracts, which help to increase your skin's tightness, and plumpness — which speaks to the painstaking research behind every cream, serum, and essence that the brand releases. “La Prairie is one of the only skincare lines I have seen that has extensive scientific research into their skincare,” says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Lily Talakoub, of McLean Dermatology and Skincare in Virginia. "The justification for the high price tag is the look, feel, and smell of these products... they're amazing and extremely well-formulated. They hydrate and leave your complexion glowing."

Dr. Marnie B. Nussbaum, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City, says that this light infused serum is brightening and firming, and it instantly illuminates the skin for an instant glow.
Dr. Henry says that this filler helps to moisturize and add volume to aging skin.
The Platinum Rare Cellular Life Lotion detoxifies the skin and enriches it with antioxidants and hydration, rejuvenating and resetting skin functions. "The elegant formulation is so pretty and feels wonderful. I look forward to using it morning and night because of how nice it feels to apply and also because it makes my skin look and feels so great," Dr. Nussbaum explains.
This cream is hydrating and has algae extract that builds collagen in the skin, according to Dr. Talakoub.
This cream is luxuriously formulated with caviar to lift and tighten the delicate eye area.
Dr. Nussbaum says that this compact is encapsulated with caviar water, which feeds the skin while providing a natural finish.
This mask helps to restore and moisturize the skin while you rest deeply. It's a decadent, rich formulation that is a dream to apply, Dr. Henry tells TZR.
Dr. Talakoub says that this eye cream is excellent for dehydrated eyelid skin, fine lines, and dark circles.
