Transforming Skincare with La Prairie

La Prairie Review

Today I’m talking all about La Prairie’s Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream. It’s a sun protection, skincare and color all in one! With SPF 30 to boot!

If you told me in high school that one day I’d “grow up” and be obsessed with makeup, so much so that I felt knowledgeable enough to review it, I would have been shocked!

Maybe because all I wore in high school was a dash of blush and a swipe of mascara. If only that high-school skin could last forever! Thankfully, there’s such a thing as Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream (kind of like foundation) to answer all of our skincare woes. Phew!

Let me tell you why I’m loving it ….



La Prairie is a luxury skincare brand based out of the Swiss Alps (how cool?) specializing in cellular creams, serums, treatments and all sorts of skincare.  Using both rare and beneficial ingredients, La Prairie boasts that its products are some of the most luxurious on earth. After trying a few of them, I’d say that I most certainly have to agree!

La Prairie’s deliciously scented Transforming Cream is now my go-to for everyday foundation. Mostly because it’s so so much more than foundation! It covers those dark under eye circles (which we all seem to get after 25) like you wouldn’t believe, counteracts dullness, helps my skin adapt to stress (wow!) and guards against UV damage.

A bit pricier than what I usually spend on makeup, but totalllllly worth the splurge.


Plus, it comes with a handy little brush for application. Much better than your fingers! I only recently starting using a brush to apply cream makeup about a year ago. It’s mind blowing how bad it can be to apply makeup with your fingers, even after you’ve just washed them!

If you have drier skin, which I do, it’s best to apply La Prairie Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream over your moisturizer and morning serum. Pump a drop or two onto your brush and apply  as much or as little as you think you’d need for a natural look.


I can’t wrap up this post without sharing a few deets about my look, now can I?


It’s safe to say, navy blue is “my color.” Take a peek into my closet, and you’d see a whole lot of it! I guess it just works really well with fair skin and dark hair?

Needless to say, this off-the-shoulder number from TIBI was a no brainer for me.  From summer parties to weddings, I’ll be wearing this one all season long!


I love that it can be both dressed up and down. With flats and a tote or heeled sandals and a wicker crossbody.

For fair-skinned gals like me, it’s important to protect your skin with SPF every day! And as my friends would say (and most magazines too) it’s never too early to start using anti-aging products for preventative measures! I’ll never forget when my college roommate went out and bought anti-aging serum on her 21st birthday.  She was the smartest of the bunch! Now in my mid/late 20s, I can’t get enough!

In other news, we’re off to Tennessee & Kentucky for the weekend! We’ll be seeing two dear friends say I do and I can not wait! I’ve got my party dress packed and I’m looking forward to hitting the dance floor with my main squeeze.  Weddings are the only occasion where I can convince him to dance with me, but I know he loves it! 😉

As always, thanks for stopping the blog!
