La Prairie's newest product is here and it continues to harness the brand's favourite ingredients, that is, Caviar. It was discovered by the brand's scientists that caviar was capable of producing natural retinol, called Caviar Retinol. This research and discovery were at the newly launched La Prairie Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil base. Retinol has the ability to boost the production of elastin and collagen within the skin. It helps with fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and photoaging. So, it was made sure that the Caviar Retinol is extracted in a way that the Caviar Lipids and key ingredients from the caviar also stay put in the whole formulation without irritating the skin.
Key Ingredients & Packaging
The naturally-derived retinol in Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil is gentle even on the most sensitive skins. The lipids extracted from the caviar have vitamin D, omega 3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids that deliver skin-caring properties. As a result, this unique blend of Caviar Lipids and Caviar Retinol works together as a team to boost collagen synthesis and skin renewal. Thus, mentioned as a line-smoothing treatment, it truly is. The Oil is packaged in a cobalt blue outer jar on the outside and an opaque black inner vessel that holds the formulation. A dropper is provided to dispense the oil.
How I Apply It?
In regard to my skin, I am most worried about the lines on my forehead and the fine lines that have started to show now. So, it was a test I was very excited about when I started testing Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil. I am not new to retinol, so I indulged directly into this nighttime oil. I took 4-5 drops of this oil and gently warmed it between the palms of my hands. Then, keeping my hands flat, I start with a sliding motion between eyebrows, slide up to the forehead. Then, continue towards the temples, slide across the cheekbones towards the top of the nose and continue down to the jawline. Next, I slide the fingertips of one hand around the contours of the mouth. Finish by sliding fingers along the jawline from chin to earlobes. Then, I repeat the entire pattern until absorbed.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil is a lightweight, silky oil, unlike any other, I have used. It is to be used as a last step in the skincare routine. Yes, even after the moisturizer. I cleanse, tone, put on eye cream, and apply my serum before using this nighttime oil. If you are new to retinol or want to try it for the first time, you can mix 3-4 drops into your moisturizer and apply it instead of directly applying it. Then, make it part of your routine on its own as your skin becomes used to it.
It has been more than 6 weeks since I started using this nighttime oil and I am halfway through the bottle. Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil has a silky lightweight texture, as I mentioned earlier. It has a nice slip to it, so is perfect for applying, glides easily, and massages nicely. I have noticed the lines on my forehead are less noticeable and the fine lines are mostly diminished. Acting on fine lines and wrinkles at a good time with an excellent product. It worked! Overall, my skin is bright, hydrated, supple, and youthful. I have not experienced any dryness or irritation with this oil. Most importantly, I make sure to use sunscreen the next day, as with any other retinol or active product. My skin looks and feels smooth and firm. I plan to keep using it in my skincare routine regularly.
I love the result when I use it over La Prairie Pure Gold Radiance Concentrate. My skin is so bright and youthful.
