Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentre
In a word, the name describes the serum perfectly. It’s a very lavish concentrate, I mean it feels luxurious on your skin and it just makes your skin look very expensive. Okay, let’s be honest here, achieving expensive looking skin is very time and money consuming. But with Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentre, you can fake it instantly.
It just plumps up your skin and gives a crystalline pearlised effect to your skin. Trust me, your skin will just glow as if you just left a relaxing day at the spa. It’s very hydrating so you won’t need any other serums if you have been layering serums. It falls into the thick rich serum category, so if you have oily/combination skin (even normal skin), you will need to test the texture at the counter first before purchase. With consistent usage, it will really firm and brings radiance back to your skin.
Skin Caviar Liquid Lift
Compared to their Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentre, the lifting serum doesn’t have that long of a history. When it was first launched a few years ago, I thought the La Praire’s oldest/first skin caviar product, Skin Caviar got renewaled and came back as Skin Caviar Liquid Lift in a pump. But I was wrong! It’s a lifting serum for daily usage.
If you have found Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentre and Skin Caviar a little too rich for your skin or even during warmer humid weather, you will probably like Skin Caviar Liquid Lift better. It’s very fast-absorbing and light like their White Caviar Illuminating Serum, and doesn’t leave any sticky residue at all but a subtle glow. It isn’t as hydrating as the other serums, so if you have dehydrated and/or dry skin, you might not like it.
And it isn’t a miracle product, you won’t see a dramatic lifting of your skin if that’s the main reason why you have an eye for the product. If your skin really needs serious tightening and lifting from aging and an extreme diet, you should save up some money and consider seeing a dermatologist for a procedure like Ultherapy. This way, the result that you want is probably achievable, and the effect will last much longer. Having said that, the serum is more for maintaining and improving your skin in a very subtle way.

Formerly, caviar extract was sourced from wild sturgeon, long believed to offer the highest quality available. In respect to the endangerment of the wild sturgeon population, La Prairie has researched and discovered an outstanding source of caviar extract offering equivalent high quality, in the Baerii sturgeon, which is grown on Aqua-farms.
