When the temperature drops, one’s obsession with lip moisturizers kicks into high gear. Who doesn’t have several lip balms rustling in the bottom of their bag? I find myself slathering on the stuff every hour or so.
Well, guess what—our eyes need that same kind of TLC throughout the day, especially when frigid weather and dry indoor heat sap your skin of moisture, exacerbating wrinkles, redness and dry patches. The skin around our eyes is extremely thin, so it is as fragile as your lips and just as easily irritated by the elements.
Enter, La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection A Porter. This chic mirrored case (love the snap when you close it) holds a compact with two separate compartments: an eye cream-gel in one and a lip balm in the other. It has become my must-have whenever I leave the front door—whether I’m traveling for the holidays or staying local running around town.
Both the lip and the eye formulas swell with water in the skin for an anti-wrinkle effect, filling in lines and plumping lips. They also quickly diffuse light to disguise imperfections and impart a radiant, refreshed look. And of course, they are very moisturizing, preventing dryness and nixing flakes. The eye cream quickly sinks into your skin, reducing any crepe-y areas and the lip balm gives a nice glossy sheen to your lips.
The La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection A Porter is new to me this winter, but has been a classic La Prairie best-seller for quite a while. I discovered it when I attended a La Prairie editor event earlier this fall to get a sneak preview of their newest launches, including La Prairie’s latest: Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare, $365, a new eye serum, enriched with their signature platinum peptide, that lifts, firms and diminishes wrinkles while brightening dark circles. You’ll soon find it in our upcoming holiday wish list which includes some other decadent skincare splurges. Stay tuned…
