La Prairie Pure Gold Collection is the latest launch from the prestigious Swiss brand. Not just a new launch but it is the step La Prairie has taken to enter the world of eco-friendly, replenishable packaging of the products. Pure Gold Collection is inspired by the beauty and grace of the golden hour in the crowns of the Alps. With their ancient composition, captivating and soaring majesty, the beauty of the Alps reaches a new height when the sun begins to sink, that is, the Golden Hour. The view is worth watching and remembering one's whole life. Inspired by this resplendence, La Prairie has launched the Pure Gold Collection and it seeks to recreate that radiance and impart it to the skin. In this post, I am going to review La Prairie Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate.
As with other products from La Prairie, the Gold Collection has unique packaging. Elevating the height of craftsmanship, both culturally and ethically, this time is no different. The grace of golden hour is depicted nicely in the brushed metal casing and cap of its first replenishable cases. The glass vials containing the precious formula are to be replaced by the new ones, once empty.
Why Gold And What is La Prairie's Gold Diffusion System?
Gold is a precious and rare element. It is a noble metal, which means, it has outstanding resistance to oxidation, least reactive metal towards atoms or molecules at the interface of a gas or a liquid. This precious metal has a luster that does not change with time. It stays and stays the same. The radiance and hue of gold are due to its electrons that absorb energy-rich blue light and reflect complementary yellow light as a warm tone. It is similar to the same as found on radiant glowy skin. Apart from the reflective luster of gold, the properties of gold at the submicron level allow for the higher concentration of gold atoms on its surface to get attached to the active ingredients. Then, it allows those active ingredients to allow them to release in a time-controlled manner on the skin's surface.
This is where La Prairie's exclusive new Gold Diffusion System comes into the picture. It works with the above-mentioned properties of gold and forms a three-peak action sequence to deliver the benefits of the active ingredients to the skin. Once applied, the first thing I notice is the instant radiance from the gold particles on the skin's surface. Then, the infusion of replenishing active ingredients provides nourishment and revitalizes the skin. The steady release of these active ingredients attached to the gold submicron gold particles completes the sequence. This helps with the long-term skin benefits as they penetrate the skin in steady but delayed infusion.
La Prairie Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate is a revitalizing serum with a rich fluid consistency. Fine gold particle flecks are visible in the fluid with the naked eye. The serum is smooth and applies well to the skin. There is a slight slip that helps to spread it over the face. Once applied and massaged, it soaks into the skin without leaving any residue. It does not feel heavy on the skin. Massaging it onto the skin is soothing and comforts the skin. It literally melts into the skin. It is quite mesmerizing to see how the gold-infused in white liquid diffuses into the skin. The skin instantly lights up, more in the sense of radiance.
As mentioned, the diffusion system makes sure the benefits and results are immediate as well as long-term. With continuous use of this serum for over six weeks, I have noticed my skin to be smooth and even. I prefer using Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate at night nowadays as the summer is in full swing but before last week, I was using it twice a day. As it is nourishing, I always make sure to cleanse my skin nicely, use this serum, an eye cream, and then follow with a light moisturizer for now. I also enjoy using it when I have exfoliated my skin. I am enjoying the 3-minute Peel from the brand. It is very gentle for my skin. This routine has been working very well for me.
I plan to follow up with a normal or rich moisturizer during the winter. I have not noticed any breakouts or irritation. With a rich serum or moisturizer, I usually notice a few bumps here and there occasionally. But with La Prairie Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate, I have not noticed anything like that. I really enjoy how soothing it is and my skin is very comfortable. Overall, I am very impressed by everything about this serum. My skin is calm, radiant, even, and smooth. Skin is soft to touch and my problem areas like pigmentation appear diminished. So, it is a winner for me and I am looking forward to keeping it in my routine.
For eyes, I love the duo Skin Caviar Eye Lift and Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream. My favorite Balm Cleanser that I use as a first cleanse is the La Prairie Supreme Balm Cleanser. It works so efficiently and is very gentle. My skin feels so comfortable and radiant just massaging with this balm and removing with a washcloth.
