La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream /Review/

Hi guys!

Today I want to tell you about another great item from La Prairie - Cellular Eye Contour Cream. It is a 24 hour age fighting eye care. La Prairie launched this cream back in 1978, and it has permanently been a best seller since then. Can you imagine? For over 30 years! What a wonder!

What company says: The tender skin around your eyes deserves the tender loving care of this richly hydrating eye cream, which combats dryness, the most common cause of fine lines and wrinkles, and effectively treats other visible signs of premature aging.

A nutritious protector with rejuvenating qualities, its gentle firming action smoothes and brightens the skin and improves its elasticity.

It is La Prairie’s eye-care product, which satisfied customers have pushed to the top of the best-seller list.

My experience: La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream comes in a sleek jar. I love it's combination of opaque white glass and silver-toned metal - simple and stylish.

It has really thick texture. As you can see from the photo below, it is white color.

It also has a pleasant scent that I can't describe. It seems to me that this is a typical scent of a luxurious cream. Although I'm not sure.

In spite of it's thick texture La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream isn't oily at all. What I feel when I apply this cream to my eye area is moisture. This is a very pleasant feeling I enjoy every morning and evening. 

Also the good news is that this product is paraben free. It contains a combination of amino acids that deeply moisturizes and improves skin's ability to retain moisture. Botanical extracts smooth and soothe the skin, relieve puffiness, eliminate irritation. Exclusive cellular complex saturates the skin with energy, nourishes and moisturizes. La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream doesn't irritate the delicate eye area and it is totally makeup-friendly. And because of it's rich texture a little goes long way - the amount of this cream I need for 1 use is the size of a match head. I'm sure that the 15 ml jar of La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream will last me a few good months. Here we go after 1 month of using.

To be quite honest I can't say that I have a lot of problems in my eye area such as wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, etc. At my age I only started to notice first fine lines and some lack of firmness and elasticity. In total it makes me look kind of tired. Don't get me wrong, I use different eye care products on a regular basis. But they can not be compared to La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream. After the first application the skin in my eye area became softer, smoother, and brighter, and those fine lines disappeared. And after 1 month the results are even better. See for yourself!

As stated on La Prairie's web site, the main goal of La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream is intensive moisturization and I must say it copes with it's task very well! I have been using this for 1 month and I know why it is a best seller! It's a good moisturizer for your eye area and you can use it as a daily care starting from 18 years to prevent premature aging. However this is not an anti-aging / anti-wrinkles treatment. So if you have wrinkles, dark under eye discoloration, circles or bags, look for a stronger treatment.

The only thing I regret about La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream is that it doesn't contain SPF.

Summing up I want to say that this is a really great moisturizing cream for the eye area and it is worth the money.

I received La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream from LaPrairie.com for review purposes.

    1. Цена высокая, конечно, для базового увлажняющего крема, но со своей задачей он справляется хорошо.
