The Treatment

This 90min treatment only uses La Prairie products. It starts off with a relaxing neck and shoulder massage and a double cleanse follows. Thereafter my facialist applied the Cellular 3-Minute Peel followed by the Skin Caviar Essence-In-Lotion that is infused with distilled caviar water to prep skin for the application of other products. She then applies the Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex, which is a soothing eye serum and massages in the Cellular Eye Contour Cream after. She used firm strokes that were painless. After the eye massage, the spreads a generous amount of the Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil to lock in moisture before applying the Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask for ultimate hydration. The mask is left on for 15 minutes and during that time, I am treated to an arm massage. Once the mask is removed, my facialist applied basic skincare and it ends off with a shoulder massage.

Verdict

I tried out the brand’s signature facial at its new Takashimaya boutique and I really loved the facial cabin. It was cozy, luxurious and had one of the most comfortable beds. I also enjoyed the pampering treatment and how it was peppered with relaxing massages that did not feel painful and uncomfortable at all. Apart from that, I really love how this treatment gave instant results. My skin looked visibly more radiant and even toned, plumper and suppler. I also noticed that my eye bags were less visible and I really love how fast-absorbing the products were. My skin did not feel greasy post-facial and it was a lot smoother and more lifted too. $260, Level 1 La Prairie Takashimaya Department Store, 391A Orchard Road tel: 6835-7503
