La Prairie Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Sun Cream SPF 30
I have been using La Prairie for a good 20+ yrs. I really like this Sun Cream since I play golf at least 3 to 4 times a week. Most people think I'm around 55 when in reality I just turned 69. I have not had any plastic surgery or injections of any kind. Men and women comment on my skin all the time.
I live in 2 dry climates and this cream is very rich which I really need...
Beautiful moisturizer with SPF
I was on the market for a new moisturizer and a new sunscreen, so I was pretty chuffed when I saw that La Prairie had a product that combined the two. Living in California, I am conscious about sun protection year around. When I went to my local La Prairie counter, the tester pot of this product was bone-dry, so I ended up buying it without being able to smell the product or see its absorbency and finish. I am in my twenties, so anti-aging properties are not typically first priority in my skincare products, but I was curious enough to give this a go.
Firstly, you don't need a lot of product. That's good considering its price point! It absorbs quickly into the skin, does not have that 'sunscreen' scent to it, and leaves a nice dewy finish on top. I have pretty normal, if sensitive, skin, so I definitely powder my skin after the application of this product and my regular foundation. This cream would be perfect for those with drier skin; those with oily skin may want to get a sample size of this product to test it out for a few days to determine if it is too moisturizing. I put it on my face and neck and a bit on my ears. I have used it everyday since I bought it, and I have had no allergic reactions or breakouts. If anything, I think my skin's overall condition has improved and whatever imperfections I have are minimized -- and this is coming from someone who doesn't believe in miracle products. For me, the only drawback, besides its high price tag, is the scent. I would prefer a lighter fragrance. The scent does dissipate after about 10-15 minutes, but based on fragrance alone, this product is definitely not my cup of tea. Thankfully the SPF and moisturizing properties are enough to offset the scent!
Love this cream. Great for under makeup but use it more in the summer when I golf. I'm fair skinned and it really keeps my face protected. I put it on my neck and ears (short hair). Has a nice smell to it also. Goes on smooth-non greasy
