Review > La Prairie Skin Care Comprehensive Overview

Published by Jasmine Seo

This is a requested post. I thought I would start with the products that are applicable to all skin types as you can mix and match with other products that are more suitable for your skin types. For better mix & match, I also added non-standard skin age group that's best suited for the texture and targeted concerns next to the skin types. I understand the fact that La Prairie offers many products and it's really hard to tell which products to pick based on skin type, as the company typically addresses more on a skin concern-basis.

Please be aware of the fact that this entire post is very personally organised, so the products that have been recommended may or may not work on your skin and you also may or may not like the consistency and/or the scent of the products that you may have chosen. For this reason, I strongly recommend you to go to your nearby La Prairie counter and take your time patiently testing the products that you are interested in before making a big purchase.

Although I would say most of the La Prairie products are very result-driven, as some people might get confused which one to try for the first time, so I also added a ✓ to mean Jasmine's pick for your first safe bet considering the price and overall efficacy with using other products even from different brands. That being said, the ones that have been marked as Jasmine's pick don't necessarily mean that they guarantee the highest outcome out of all other La Prairie products. By the way, I intentionally excluded their Swiss Cellular White Collection during the process as the products are available only in certain countries including Europe and Asia, but if you have any questions on those, feel free to ask.

And here is the brief summary of products based on personal experiences of myself and people around me including my family who have been La Prairie users for long time :).
