How La Prairie’s Line Interception Power Duo Changed My Skin

I’ve always been incredibly slack when it comes to following a strict skincare regimen and up until quite recently I’ve always cut corners when it came to looking after my skin but been lucky enough to still have healthy skin. You’re probably thinking here she goes again with her humble brag but I’ve never felt the need to pay too much attention to my skin. On the off chance that a rogue pimple does find its way onto my forehead I tend to panic and reach for every skin product I can dig out of my arsenal. La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo

So why have I started to pay so much attention to my skin now? Is it because I’m rapidly nearing the turning point of my life where I can no longer classify myself as being in my mid-twenties or is it because those long days under the sun and late nights with girlfriends drinking way too many glasses of bubbly are finally playing a serious game of catch up with me? I’ve recently come to the realization that being comfortable in your own skin is so important and for most ladies it means waking up every morning and throwing a face of make up on before waltzing out for work, meetings, events or all of the above. For me it’s about being able to confidently sashay out of the house without having to wear sunglasses that envelope your entire face and an Adidas cap to hide your breakouts and redness.


Fun Facts: (some are not so fun)

  • Skin is the largest organ on our body
  • Over 50% of the dust in your home is actually dead skin (ew)
  • Collagen is what determines how smooth the skin is. Men have thicker skin than women and get fewer lines and wrinkles than women due to a greater amount of collagen (as if they don’t have it easy already)
  • Every 28 days your skin renews itself

 

Whilst I don’t believe that skincare regimens need to contain products solely from the same brand, I do believe that certain ingredients are used throughout products of skincare lines and are effective when used in conjunction to each other. Now my skin isn’t as supple and poreless as a VS models’ but if there’s a product that can make me feel confident enough to step out of the house sans make up then I think it’s worth taking a moment to gush about. So what is this magical elixir? Well it’s a healthy combination of fairy dust, unicorn hair and the tears of newborns. Kidding!

La Prairie Line Interception DuoLa Prairie’s new Line Interception Power Duo has recently become my hero with its sleek and efficient design of having both day and night creams in a dual chamber bottle (a traveller’s dream). It’s also been designed with a lock that limits the products’ exposure to oxygen and keeps your possessions safe from mid-air explosions. I’m no skincare expert and without boring you with too much technicality here is what you need to know about the Line Interception Power Duo.

What does it do? La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo

  • The day formula contains three specialized peptides that prevent the formation of expression lines as well as SPF30, UVA and IRA protection to help defy sun induced damage.
  • The night formula contains anti-wrinkle peptides that stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid and gives your skin the kick it needs to regenerate.
  • The product has been compared to delivering the same results as botox but over a period of time – its always a bonus when you don’t have to resort to botox.

How does it feel?

  • The day cream is not heavy in consistency despite the SPF protection and feels incredibly light on the skin.
  • The night cream is incredibly soothing and doesn’t leave your skin feeling like you’ve just drowned it in product. (I also love the smell of the night cream.)

Who is it for?

Any woman who is looking to get a head start on fighting fine lines so my recommendation is for any girl 23 years and over and especially those who are quite liberal when it comes to spending time under the sun.

Use it With:La Prairie Skincare Range

I spent Christmas and New Years in Bali and by that stage I had been trialing a complete La Prairie regimen for just over a week. My skin felt amazing and was glowing (I sh*t you not) so much so that Edward Cullen had nothing on me. I’ve never felt completely confident in stepping out of the house with no make up but this has changed entirely since I started the regime. I even managed to shoot images that made it to my carefully curated Instagram feed and I swear on the life of my first born (I don’t have kids yet) that I was wearing no make up except for a tinted lip balm.

    This product looks, and sounds great! I love the smooth application, and how well it looks on skin, or under makeup. Also pretty grossed out with the fact that so much of the dust in our homes is dead skin! Eek!

    First of all you have GORGEOUS skin! It is glowy and dewy and not a wrinkle in sight! I definitely need to get my hands on these La Prairie products! I agree, as we age we definitely have to be more mindful and protect our skin and use the best quality skincare products available. I’ve actually heard amazing things about this brand and their products and you have convinced me to go out and get them now! xoxo, Christine

  • I always wondered how your skin is so flawless every time I watch your IG stories! Now I know the answer! Definitely need to check these products out as I’ve been pretty experimental with skin care products lately, whilst in search of the perfect ones now that I’ve turned 25 haha. Hopefully I can keep my skin looking this perfect even after my mid-twenties too 🙂 xo, sharon

  • I’ve forever been envious of your flawless skin! Now that I know your secret, I gotta get on board with that skincare regimen. It seems like no matter what I try, I will always have difficult skin, but whatever I can do to help it stay healthy, I’ll give it a go! I loved your comment about Edward Cullen haha totally had me laughing out loud, girlfriend!

    Wow !!! I have to say you are truly inspiring! I, too, have never had any kind of formal skin care system and I am certainly not in my twenties or even my thirties ! It’s definitely time and this looks like a great way to start . Thank you so much!

  • WOW the La Prairie’s Line Interception Power Duo’s packaging looks luxurious! I might wanna try them out for myself if my skin ain’t too sensitive. Right now I’m still struggling with my adult acne and can’t seem to find a good solution to fix it T.T
    Wish I can step out of my house sans makeup and feeling like a queen too *haha

  • Lisa Mao

    I always have a problem with day creams being way too thick and creamy! It makes it hard to apply makeup. So good to know this is a good solution and alternative. will have to check this out for myself!

    Haha, dear Helen, here I DO have to disagree with you, we men don’t have it easier than you do. That is, if we want to look young and fresh like I do 😉 I have tried some of La Prairies products before, but can’t wait to try these out too! 🙂

  • You look beautiful without makeup – your skin glows. I also had it easier when I was younger but when I hit my mid 20s. I moved to the City and maybe it was the pollution but I got adult acne and it was horrific. You really can’t take your skin for granted. These products look amazing – they are clearly working. But wait till you have kids – they suck all of the life out of you LOL. I looked like a baby until I had my kids at 30….

  • I had heard that you need to try a product for a month before you notice a difference, but did not remember skin renewed itself every 28 days! I had seen this brand a lot and hadn’t tried it. You have fantastic skin, which I totally love and envy. La Prarie seems like a wonderful brand to try. I’ll have to check it out.

    (Eye Roll) How is it that men get longer lashes and more collagen too! Not fair! lol I definitely need to stock up on these La Prairie products, I have been all about tackling fine lines lately, and preserving my youth. Thanks for sharing these products with us! 🙂
