The name of this product says it all.  It screams luxury.  You should know that La Prairie traces its proud heritage to the highly renowned Clinique La Prairie in Montreux, Switzerland. For more than half a century, the Clinique has been the pioneer in cellular, anti-aging therapy, sharing its unique accomplishments with thousands of visitors from around the world.  Since 1982, Laboratoires La Prairie, Switzerland has no longer been a part of Clinique La Prairie, but has been the birthplace of extraordinarily effective products that help manage the skin aging process.  The White Caviar Illuminating Système combines luxury and innovative technology to offer the most advanced anti-pigmentation and firming benefits available from cosmetic treatments.

This product combines anti-aging, anti-pigmentation and luminescence with pearlescent pigments to inhibit melanin production, detoxify and beautify, leaving the skin surrounding the eye brighter and more even-toned with improved firmness.

We tested this product on a small panel of 5 participants, who used the product for 30 days.  The directions indicate to use AM and/or PM, after cleansing and toning, by smoothing the serum  under the eye from outer corner to inner corner, paying special attention to darkened areas.  3 out of 5 consumers fell in love with this product, from the luxurious packaging to the amazingly smooth, easy-to-apply serum that absorbed rather rapidly.  The other 2 consumers felt that despite the over the top display, the product offered little to no results and that maybe caviar should be served in fine dining establishments only.  Specific feedback included that the pump tends to stick and it is hard to gauge the amount of serum to apply.

We weren’t able to find much scientific evidence to support the high price.  The product doesn’t clearly claim to do much and we cannot find a list of ingredients in the product description on the web.  We can’t recommend a product that isn’t even willing to disclose to consumers the ingredients.  Perhaps, caviar isn’t on the list?!
