Worthy Splurges: The La Prairie Caviar Absolute Filler + A Weekend Sales Edit


Elements of my La Prairie Caviar Ritual.
Happy first day of September, friends! How are you spending the holiday weekend? This post is dedicated to my updated La Prairie Caviar Ritual; the recent launch of the impressively effective *La Prairie Skin Caviar Absolute Filler (also available at Neiman Marcus) has slightly altered the order in which I apply the products and I am excited to detail how my skin has responded to this opulent formula!

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of La Prairie in action as well as my holiday weekend sales suggestions and the Bottom Line...


My La Prairie Caviar Skincare Ritual now involves four key steps (the first three, executed both day and night):
  • *La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion (also available at Neiman Marcus and reviewed HERE): Upon cleansing, a drop or two of this bouncy formula (which delightfully simultaneously feels like a liquid and a gel) delivers moisture while toning the skin, ultimately preparing it to more readily accept the benefits of the skincare to come. 
  • *La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift Serum (also available at Neiman Marcus and reviewed HERE): This serum nourishes the skin, encouraging skin cells to repair and rejuvenate; the results include firmer and more lifted looking skin with each application. 
  • *La Prairie Skin Caviar Absolute Filler (also available at Neiman Marcus): One pump (the packaging, by the way is extremely innovative) yields enough of this luxurious cream to cover my entire face; as soon as it's absorbed (which is in mere seconds, I might add), my canvas appears hydrated, bouncy, revived and positively glowing. The blurring effect this seems to have on my skin is remarkable; fine lines and even pores appear minimized and the effect lasts the entire day; consequently, I am over the moon for this latest addition to my routine.

Infused with potent Caviar Absolute, this innovative addition to the Skin Caviar collection targets the loss of volume and substance in the skin. This daily moisturizer restores tone and density for enhanced skin fullness and refined contours. The skin is imbued with the harmony of youth.

Caviar Absolute, La Prairie's new caviar ingredient is used for the first time in Skin Caviar Absolute Filler. It is the result of an advanced technological process that captures the most elusive, volume-enhancing nutrients found in caviar—an innovative scientific breakthrough in state-of-the-art caviar science.

Immerse yourself in the Skin Caviar lifting and firming ritual by starting with Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion, followed by Skin Caviar Liquid Lift and Skin Caviar Eye Lift Cream. Complete with Skin Caviar Absolute Filler.

Product Benefits:
  • Helps restore skin density and refine contours.
  • Contributes to increased elasticity.
  • Improves the appearance of tone.
  • *La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer and Foundation (also available at Neiman Marcus and reviewed HERE): Ever a foundationphile, this formula is consistently in my top five formula rotation as it offers buildable medium coverage and a gorgeous natural skin finish that delivers skincare benefits while perfecting one's canvas. It's so adored that I never ever travel without it...and, based on your comments and emails, a host of Beauty Professor readers feel the same way!
Upon cleansing, I apply a few drops of the La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion, either with a cotton pad or my bare hands. It primes my skin and also adds a lovely wash of moisture. 
Then, I distribute a single pump of the *La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift Serum  all over my face for firming and lifting benefits.
Next, a signal pump of the *La Prairie Skin Caviar Absolute Filler  is all that is necessary to plump fine lines and smooth my canvas for makeup application. After this step, my skin literally glows!

Finally, I conclude my Caviar Ritual with the *La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer and Foundation. A nickel-sized amount imparts flawless medium coverage and the accompanying concealer instantly brightens the orbital area. 
On to the makeup...

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this overview of my updated La Prairie Caviar Ritual; I cannot say enough good things about the *La Prairie Skin Caviar Absolute Filler (also available at Neiman Marcus) as it has notably contributed to a smoother, brighter and more refined canvas in my two weeks of consistent testing. I plan to diligently use it daily this fall and can't wait to continue to calibrate the results.
