When you're talking about the most decadent spas in the world and the most glamorous jet-setters, they're all using La Prairie products. As they say,

It all began with a quest for timeless beauty, the primary mission of the clinique la prairie in Montreux, Switzerland and the inspiration for our revolutionary skincare formulas. a pioneer in cellular anti-aging therapies, la prairie has always harnessed ingredients both rare and beneficial. today, with cutting edge biotechnology and our patented cellular complex, the formulations have become the most luxurious on earth.

In other words, there are people who can get the finest cutting edge treatments -- "get a little work done" -- in the privacy of the Swiss Alps. Early patrons included Patrons of the Clinique included Charlie Chaplin, Marlene Dietrich, and Charles de Gaulle. I was very happy to be hosted to experience their products!

Maybe you can travel to the clinic, maybe it's simply not possible. Why not make your bathroom the site of the most luxurious spa of your dreams? Make it like you jet-setted for the finest skin treatments without even applying for a passport! Turn your mail carrier into a concierge who brings you the best!

The Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection is an age-defying fortifier group. Imagine all of the benefits of rare and pure oils in a dry oil . . . "What's a dry oil?" you ask. It's a thin, easily applied and absorbed oil that leaves a more powder-like touch. You can wear the finest silks after applying it and never worry about staining.

Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil has a gorgeously lush, floral bouquet and isn't a product that you have to wait for 3 months to see results: you see and feel results immediately. It's considered a sheer, moisture-binding treatment oil. The applicator is innovative: it's an easy twist-off, then you pump a drop or two wherever you like.

After a harsh, cold winter, this is a perfect product to effectively overhaul your overworked body skin. It's something to use when you want to wear something a little more revealing and at the moment, you feel too dry and flaky to even dare. Do you have a friend who's going through a life "re-set"? What a wonderful gift it would be, lasting more than just a day at the spa. Your friend would feel special, again!

Maybe you've been diligent about your face care, but not your hands. Have you given them a good look lately? A manicure -- even a paraffin one -- isn't going to fix that situation on its own. Your hands can give away your age immediately! What you need is a hand cream that not only has lasting benefits, but also has immediate benefits . . . and doesn't have to be constantly re-applied. After all, who wants to be caught in a professional or social situation constantly creaming her or his hands? And yet, you need a super-hero to fix your paws.

That's where White Caviar Illuminating Hand Cream SPF 15 comes in, to be your super-hero. These are its stated benefits:

  • helps fade appearance of age spots and discoloration hydrates deeply
  • conditions cuticles
  • strengthens nails SPF 15
  • helps firm and smooth

I have been using this hand-cream for a while. Previously, I had really, really crappy nails. There was no getting around it! I even eat special foods that are supposed to be good for nails. Just yesterday, I was looking down at my hands: I have the kind of nails now that other people have always enjoyed! The cream itself leaves a little soft glow, so there's that instant gratification. Think about adding that on top of a new jewelry purchase! After all, you don't want scruffy hands and new gems.

Also, if you have age spots/sun spots, those are easy to get, but tough to get rid of! This cream will be your weapon against the ol' "liver spots".

The cream is 100 ml, perfect for taking in your travel 3-1-1 bag. The cap is ingenious, with a texture that defies creamed hands from slipping/dropping. The threads of the twist-off cap are particularly easy to work. It has a light, outdoor garden-y scent.
