Feast your eyes on some of the most luxurious skincare gifts, From La Prairie, for Holiday 2014 :
La Prairie ANTI-AGING EYE AND LIP PERFECTION A PORTER ($150)
If I had to pick just one special item from La Prairie to own, or to give, it would actually be the most modestly prices, but essential and portable one. The La Prairie ANTI-AGING EYE AND LIP PERFECTION A PORTER ($150). Inside a pristine white round zippered case lies a compact that brings the best of treatment for eyes and lips.The silver compact has two separate compartments: an eye cream-gel in one and a lip balm in the other. This elegant accessory is a must for an anytime, anywhere beauty fix. Both products are luxuriously emollient but not greasy, so you can use them any time, anywhere when you feel the need. Traveling? It’s a must-have to combat dry air and fatigue. Just past the ye cream/gel under the eye (you can even use it over foundation and on the eyelid). My favorite part is the lip balm. It is silky, soothing, and hydrating and makes lips look more alive without anything else on them, but you can use it under or over lipstick too. If your lips are very dry, wear it to bed for softer lips with less chapping, when you wake up. The products are formulated with our La Prairie’s Cellular Complex. I personally own this product and while it does take up a bit of room in my handbag, I won’t leave home without it. I’m totally hooked!
