Let’s take a short break from all the travel and food posts for now and give way to another favorite topic for us women : Beauty. Since a lot of you have been asking me for some beauty tips (especially when travelling), I am now sharing with you one of my favorite new skincare products.
Not a lot of people know that I am a beauty junkie — skincare and makeup! I have a whole spectrum of beauty products that range from affordable drugstore finds to luxurious brands that can only be bought in department stores or select boutiques. One skincare brand that I have stuck with ever since I discovered its amazing benefits is La Prairie. (I didn’t realize that this is the only beauty brand I’ve written about on the blog four times already! Find out why by clicking here , here , here and here!)
So allow me to share with you my latest beauty buy that has proven to be effective for me — especially since I’ve been travelling for the past 2 months…
One of the perils of traveling is the havoc it can wreak on the skin. For one, there’s the dry air in the plane to deal with, and then there are the changes in weather once you reach your destination. I always make sure I consider these factors when packing my beauty bag.
These past 2 trips (US and now Japan), I brought a new product to help me ease into the different time zones and weather conditions. Just before I left, I got the White Caviar Illuminating Moisturizing Cream from La Prairie‘s White Caviar Collection.
I needed something that would be both pampering and protective, and this promises just that: a silky, lightweight cream that brightens and promotes even skin tone. And since I will be exposed to the sun more than the usual, this is something my skin desperately needs! And how indulgent is it that this has Golden Caviar Extracts? Just those words make me feel spoiled already! It is extra hydrating because White Caviar products have three times more Omega-3 fatty acids than the other skin caviar products out there (the Caviar extracts here are more concentrated).
Between jet lag and, well, all the hopping on and off planes and trains, having the luxury of a premium beauty product from my trusted La Prairie is a definite must-have.
La Prairie is available in all Rustan’s Department Stores.
