La Prairie Anti-ageing Rapid Response Booster Serum

The brand La Prairie is right up in there in luxury category when it comes to skincare, one of those brands you really want to try but need to know whether they are worth their price tag. I was very lucky to be able to try the La Prairie’s Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster, which is described by La Prairie as the most accelerated wrinkle interceptor yet. Erm oh, wait, really? It can intercept wrinkles? At £195 for 50ml, I don't quite have enough to bathe in, but I am definitely up for putting it to the test.

La Prairie also say "A revolutionary active delivery system targets the cells that make skin look younger with precision and speed and delivers anti-wrinkle ingredients exactly where your skin needs them most. Beautiful, visibly younger-looking skin is only two weeks away".  Add to that it promises to reduce wrinkle depth and volume, help control the evolution of skin aging, recovering hydration and reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, whilst exfoliating to refine skin and minimize the look of imperfections including wrinkles and enlarged pores - wow!

As you might expect, the packaging is absolutely exquisite, it just screams luxury and expensive at me every time I use it. The product itself is a really lightweight serum which you are told to apply, in one or two drops, to the face and neck after cleansing and toning, but before you apply your moisturiser. So nothing too onerous at least and an easy part of my every day skincare routine.

La Prairie is said to be one of the main pioneers when it comes to anti-ageing products, so it comes as no surprise that their Rapid Response Booster Serum is jam packed full of ingredients to specifically target the signs of ageing. So to fight wrinkles a targeted delivery system transports anti-wrinkle peptides to exactly where they are needed, these peptides are then released to fortify the skin and in turn this reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles and reinforces the skin’s barrier protection.  Next is an ingredient called Plankton extract which is a marine element which improves exfoliation for softer smoother skin. There is also a mixture of jojoba, mimosa, and sunflower waxes all of which help to reduce trans-epidermal water loss.  The final ingredients to mention is sodium hyaluronate which attracts and holds moisture, the herbal brightening complex inhibits excess pigmentation, and the silver vine complex improves skin’s translucency. Phew... there is just so much information within this little product that it is mind blowing and you can read more about it right HERE.

I have now been using this serum for just over 2 weeks now and I have to say it is these most fabulous serum I think I have ever used. On the skin, it feels just beautiful and is so luxurious, it is so lightweight that it immediately disappears into the skin leaving behind incredibly soft feeling skin. I am lucky that I have no wrinkles as yet, but the very few fine lines that I do have on my forehead do seem to be much less prominent with my overall complexion is much definitely brighter and more radiant, so much so that my work colleagues have asked me what it is that I am using because they are wanting some for themselves!  You only need to use one pump of this at any one time to cover your entire face which means it is going to last you a good few months.

Now that I have tried a product from the La Prairie range I really want to try more! I am going to be very very sad when this serum runs out, it is so amazing but totally out of my budget range which makes me feel very said.

The La Prairie Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster is available now from John Lewis.

  3. Yikes, La Prairie! It is so pricey, though 50ml is actually a decent size. Most of my eye serums are 30ml and a few are 15 so when you look at it like that, this doesn't seem quite so expensive. I've never used any La Prairie, though the ingredients in this serum crop up in a number of my skincare products too. Great to hear you've had good results with this - and friends/colleagues commenting on how good your skin looks is the ultimate compliment, yes?! Tx

  4. I don't have any faith in anything that calls itself "anti-aging", but I do love products that soften the skin which can have a similar effect, so I would be tempted to try this.

  7. It certainly looks luxurious, and sounds amazing and if it works then I guess it's cheaper than some of the alternatives. Sadly, it's out of my price range too so I'll just go off and sulk with my wrinkles :(

  10. I am a sucker for presentation and packaging, this is fabulous. I love the sound of the serum and have tried a few of the high end serums and though they were amazing, but this is very high end, top of the range and way out of my budget. I would love to try it though, sounds as if it has done wonders for you!
