What it is: A rich, luxurious moisturizer that deeply hydrates, revitalizes and enriches the skin with the radiance of pure gold.
What it does: Inspired by the beauty of the golden hour in the Swiss Alps, La Prairie seeks to recreate its unique radiance and impart it to the skin as if lit from within. Infused with the brand's proprietary Pure Gold Diffusion System and the Exclusive Cellular Complex, it provides essential nutrients, smoothing the skin, evening skin's texture and restoring a youthful glow. The Pure Gold collection has been developed for devitalized skin—skin that is fragile, thin, dry and dull. When skin is devitalized, it becomes less receptive to nutrients, leading to a slowing down of renewal processes. For skin to function more efficiently, it needs to be constantly exposed to active ingredients. To address this particularity of devitalized skin, La Prairie created Pure Gold Diffusion. This system leverages the unique properties of gold as a vehicle for powerful actives to deliver three peaks of action to skin. First is the immediate deposition of gold on the skin's surface upon application, offering instant radiance. An intense infusion of active ingredients follows. Finally, a steady release of the replenishing active ingredients linked to gold particles over the course of the day completes the sequence and ensures skin is continually replenished.
How to use: Apply morning and night after cleansing, toning and applying your concentrate and eye cream. Using the 18k gold-plated spatula, scoop a dime-sized amount of cream and apply between your eyebrows, sliding up to your forehead then down to the temples. Slide across your cheekbones. Continue to your jawline and chin. Slide one hand around your mouth. Repeat until absorbed.

La Prairie: La Prairie skin care, makeup and fragrance represent an exquisite fusion of Swiss science, art and rare ingredients. The brand traces its origins to 1930s Switzerland, where a doctor at Clinique La Prairie pioneered cellular anti-aging therapies. La Prairie became the first brand to apply this research to skin care, infusing collections with their exclusive Cellular Complex.
