Not your average eye serum, La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Eye Lift is the non-invasive answer to an instant eye and brow lift. The Eye Lift’s two-part formula combines the brand’s signature gold caviar beads with a silky gel-cream emulsion. The result is a serum that’s enriched with La Prairie’s winning Caviar Premier extract and its exclusive Cellular Complex, which is backed by cutting-edge biotechnology to inject new life into your cells. One small pump of the refreshingly indulgent serum will bring about an immediate tensing sensation. Simply start at the eye’s inner corner and dot along the eyelid crease to the outer corner, then dab along the eye’s contours for the lift your peepers have been asking for. Gentle but extremely effective, the serum tackles problem areas such as crow’s feet and under-eye puffiness with ease. When used day and night, it garners results that not only lift and firm up, but also smooth out the entire area for what appears to be fresh and well-rested eyes. No filter required.

From the anti-ageing red light, anti-acne blue light, skin-soothing yellow light, detoxifying green light and other variations, this is the at-home-spa device made for the future of skincare.
It’s used in the world’s finest spas, so we’re not exactly surprised that Valmont came up tops in this year’s awards. But it’s the recently launched Primary collection that really impressed us. As part of the Swiss brand’s first microbiome-balancing skincare line — and first unisex collection for that matter — the Primary Cream is the ultimate smoothing cream that regulates the skin’s ecosystem.
