Reap the anti-ageing benefits of La Prairie’s new facial treatment oil that works while you sleep so you wake up to smoother and firmer skin

Let’s face it, ageing is inevitable. Besides fine lines and wrinkles, loss of facial firmness is another prominent sign of ageing. And did you know that the way our skin ages is actually an accumulation of the cumulative damage we put it through, such as repeated exposure to UV rays, pollution and other environmental stressors such as blue light?

To address these skin concerns, La Prairie introduces its new Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil. Two years in the making, this facial treatment oil is part of its indulgent Skin Caviar collection. Embodying the brand’s Swiss identity, synonymous with quality, perfection, precision and innovation, it pushes the boundaries of Swiss caviar science to achieve utmost efficacy in anti-ageing. It works to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles, while enhancing skin firmness and elasticity to restore your lost youth.

This is achieved by working in conjunction with your skin’s natural circadian rhythm to support and improve three essential night-time processes—increasing the formation of collagen, improving epidermal stem cell renewal and minimising moisture loss by encouraging the production of new hyaluronic acid within. Skin is repaired, revitalised and regenerated. The best bit? It does all these simultaneously while you are deep in slumber.

And it’s all thanks to a new key ingredient, La Prairie’s exclusive caviar retinol. It’s well-known that retinol is a potent anti-ageing active, but this exclusive blend not only reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but also delivers powerful lifting and firming benefits at the same time. The brand’s latest Swiss caviar incarnation, this caviar-derived retinol is composed of caviar lipids—vitamin D and triglycerides comprising omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids—and retinol, and is obtained through a specially-designed extraction process, done at room temperature, to capture and retain the potency of these delicate caviar molecules.

A luxurious oil, it glides over the skin like a dream, nourishing it and leaving it supple and comforted. And to protect the precious anti-ageing properties of the caviar retinol, the delicate formula is housed in a glass-in-glass bottle that consists of an opaque black inner vessel within a cobalt blue outer jar. This is the perfect fusion of form and function.

A first for the Swiss house, La Prairie commissioned French digital artist, Mathieu Le Sourd, better known as Maotik, to create an interactive and multisensorial experience as an ode to the iconic cobalt blue shade of the new Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil and Skin Caviar skincare collection.

Titled Sense of Blue, this immersive installation of The Cobalt Night is set in three stages, and captures a progressive journey to discover what the night holds through the use of light, sound and digital interactions. Through the use of algorithms and technology, Maotik leads the audience down a magical path where the night unfurls from early night, which is serene and captivating, to the deepest night where creativity is set free and the senses are liberated, triggering one’s curiosity, surprise, contemplation and imagination. The work will also be presented in a public space during Art Basel in Switzerland, from September 22 to 26 this year.

The culminating step in your pampering Skin Caviar night-time ritual, applied after the Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion, Liquid Lift and the Eye Ritual, the Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil will seal in moisture and the active ingredients, strengthening the skin’s barrier, leaving it supple and plump when you wake. It is available at La Prairie counters at Takashimaya D S, Tangs at Tangs Plaza, Metro Paragon and One Assembly Raffles City, from August 16.

When the new minimalist-themed La Prairie Boutique (#B1-15A) at Ion Orchard raises its shutters from August 20 onwards, it will also be stocked with the new formulation. Customers can make appointments for luxurious facials at its two cabins in-store too.
