I really like the kind of genius finds I am going to present you today; the luxurious La Prairie anti-aging eye and lip perfection à porter. Why genius?
- It combines two products in one; an eye cream in one compartment and a lip balm in the other one.
- Being on-the-go makes it really convenient to use throughout the day.
- It has two mirrors which comes in really handy for touch-ups
Several things I like about this must-have beauty fix are; first its elegant packaging. It is a light-weight fancy product that comes with a leather cover for protection and that is easy to slip into the bag. Second, the textures of the eye cream and the lip balm are really stunning; the first one is a creamy, kind of pearly texture that can be used over foundation or concealer to blur lines and give instant glow, it smooths the line of the skin for a comfortable and bright result. The lip balm is silky and smells heavenly. It helps to keep the lips pretty with a bit of plumpness.
The eye cream contains the following ingredients among others:
- Ginseng; known for toning the skin by preventing sagging tissue and reducing the appearance of fine wrinkles, also renewing cells. It is ideal for eye contour gels, serums and care for the bust.
- Horsetail; antioxidant, invigorating and purifying, moisturizing and firming because rich in silicon, involved in the formation of collagen which forms the supporting tissue of the skin element. Horsetail is known to promote firmness and elasticity of the tissues while ensuring adequate hydration of the upper layers skin. It is also healing, it helps to repair irritated skin with slight wounds.
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Cotton seed oil
- Linseed oil
The lip balm contains the following ingredients among others:
- Hyaluronic Acid
I use it a lot when I travel to moisturize the eye area during the flight. As you know, cabin air causes deep dryness that one can prevent by applying rich creams and drinking water. I apply the eye cream before and after the flight for a higher skin relief. The lip balm is really fine for beautiful, natural lips.
This beauty genius has a massive disadvantage though, its high price, around 120€.
