Think of the phrase ‘a sight for sore eyes’, or ‘the mirror of the soul’: Having a fresh gaze automatically reveals our clear intent and focus, and after spending long hours keeping up with the frenetic pace of modern life, we all need a daily tonic to heal the gateways to the soul. La Prairie’s latest release is just the thing to do so.

La Prairie has once again pushed the boundaries of their existing Skin Caviar science, now to treat the overworked and delicate eye area. With 22 muscles in constant motion — whether by blinking some 10,000 times a day, crinkling the eyes to smile, laugh, or open in delight or shock — skin around the eyes is one of the the most telling signs of age. Gravity pulls from the upper and lower lids and under the brows, and time tugs at the skin’s natural elasticity, leading to fine lines and wrinkles.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

—Marcel Proust

The new Skin Caviar Eye Lift is the first eye serum created to treat the entire eye area, from the brows to under-eye circles, providing an effective means to lift and firm the delicate skin. Made with a potent infusion of luxurious Caviar Premier and La Prairie’s exclusive Cellular Complex, the serum targets sagging skin and results have shown that with daily use over time, the eyes appear more open, while the surrounding natural contours and the eyebrows also look more defined. Most importantly: the lower lids are smoothed, puffy under-eye bags are banished and the upper eyelids are tightened, making for a more youthful, awake and alert gaze.

As the brand’s newest star product to help redefine the gaze, an artful approach to its formula design was a must. The vial design is inspired by the Skin Caviar Liquid Lift serum and the way its caviar beads within are visible through a window. The new Skin Caviar Eye Lift also showcases this in full view with two separate chambers, putting the focus on the two supremely pure ingredients. One press of the activating pump instantly fuses the two formulas for each individual application — the Caviar Premier encased in gold beads, and the Cellular Complex in an attractive tourmaline-pink-hued gel-cream. The delivery system is awaiting patent and is an innovative method to ensure freshness with each use.

Created with a sense of audacity to break the boundaries of what was previously thought possible, the Skin Caviar Eye Lift wouldn’t be complete without a meditative skincare ritual. Starting with clean, pristine skin, La Prairie recommends prepping the face with a few drops of Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex around the eye. Then, press to blend a single dose of formula of the Skin Caviar Eye Lift, dabbing along the eye’s contours to feel the tensing sensation immediately. Follow with Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream — also recently upgraded with Caviar Premier extract — to seal in the indulgence, morning and night, and open your eyes wide to a refreshing new gaze.
