La Prairie Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentrate

La Prairie Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentrate

In the midst of a credit crunch, it seems that penny pinching doesn’t count when it comes to beauty. The beauty arena doesn’t seem to suffer in line with the economy; Leonard Lauder’s Lipstick Index theory holds true through every crisis. A little dabble with beauty seems more an essential than a luxury, and if a lipstick purchase diverts us from snapping up those must-have shoes a snip at £600 then that’s what I call a pretty useful buy. Here’s my pick of the splash-out beauties hitting the shelves right now.

This high performance serum is packed with AHA’s, peptides and amino acids to boost cell renewal and plump the skin, while a shower of diamond, mica and quartz crystals give the complexion luminosity and radiance. £230, La Prairie Counters Nationwide.

During the month of June, Crème  de la Mer packaging takes on a limited edition blue hue and donates all proceeds of the 250ml World Ocean Day Crème  to marine conservation organisation, Oceana. As kelp forms a vital part of the Crème’s ingredient list, it’s a natural match.  £518.72, exclusively at Harrods.
