La Prairie Cellular Moisturizer SPF 15 — The Smart Cream
I’d like to continue my skin care reviews. This time — La Prairie Cellular Moisturizer SPF 15 — The Smart Cream. I’ve noticed an empty jar just recently, so it’s time to post, isn’t it?
The Smart Cream — promises to think for your skin and deliver necessary ingredients where they are needed the most. It claims to give your skin many things from moisturizing and radiance to lifting and reduction of fine lines. SPF 15 is included.
I’ve found this cream is a good moisturizer, I don’t even need any extra products for the day unless I overtime too much or the weather changes in the bad way. I’ve started to use it in the end of the summer and found that texture is kind of heavy for me in the beginning. However, I always preferred very lightweight, gel-like texture, so many good cream will be «a want lighter» for me. Anyway it absorbs very quickly and doesn’t left any oily feeling after application. As the weather became colder I get used to the texture and found it comfortable, haven’t really noticed when my jar ran out.
I can’t comment any anti-age claims cause I don’t really need lifting, I don’t have to much fine lines neither. I have two small lines between my eyebrows — one smaller and one bigger. Smaller is almost unnoticeable now, but I still see the bigger one. Though I’ve enjoined the every application of this cream I can’t skip that it is expensive. You may want to skip it, if you need just a common moisturizer.

Final Thoughts: for me this cream is a very good daily moisturizing care with good texture, some kind of nourishing, but I wouldn’t say it does a lot more. I just can’t comment any anti-age or lifting claims as I selfishly think I’m luckily too young to have such problems where this cream can show more care. I think this cream will be perfect for a young woman of 25-30 with skin like norman, combination dry/oily, but not very dry or really oily. The price tag is disappointing. I won’t recommend to save for this cream, but if it’s within you beauty-budget it is worth of try.
