La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare Review

SKIN CARE REVIEWS

11.16.18 AD DISCLOSURE

The La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare, according to the brand, was inspired by one of the Earth’s rarest and most precious resources. These ingredients, along with the rest of the formula, work together to help diminish the signs of aging, which include dullness, sagging, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles. This range is considered to have some of the most luxurious products that La Prairie has produced. The Cellular Cream in particular provides a noticeable line-smoothing effect. That being said, in order to see the maximum effect, the brand recommends pairing this product with the Platinum Rare Cellular Night Elixxir.
