“Do I really need to wear a serum?,” is what you might moan. Not just for your face, but for your eyes as well? If you’ve been shopping around for some new skincare these days, you might find yourself perusing through a multitude of eye products with words like “treatment,” “essence” and “serum” on them. What happened to good old-fashioned eye cream? Technology happened. Looks like another step is necessary to really stop those unwanted wrinkles, dark circles and puffs from forming in the first place.
Good news is, we spoke with Dr. Daniel Stangl, Director of Innovation at La Prairie, to tell us more about the NEW! La Prairie Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare. Dr. Stangl knows that women are looking for long-term results and immediate satisfaction when it comes to skincare, which can be seen using the essence’s Lifting and Tightening Complex. “It imparts an instant look of lift and firmness that lasts for several hours,” explains Dr. Stangl. And did you know that your skin’s DNA (peptide-destroying enzymes to be exact) is actually trying to prevent you from looking young!

BeautyStat: What is the importance of an eye serum/treatment?
DS: The area around our eyes is among the most delicate skin on our face. Using an eye cream and serum can help eliminate signs of aging and often are formulated to work in synergy with one another. Like a facial serum, an eye serum is going to set the stage for more effective results with any product you layer over it. It’s also formulated with more targeted ingredients that are delivered to the depths [of the skin] where they’re needed. With Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare, we are able to address lines and wrinkles, dryness, darkness under the eye and puffiness.
BeautyStat: Can you wear it alone or under eye cream?
DS: The Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare can be worn alone, however, we do recommend layering it. Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare offers amplified results when layered underneath Cellular Eye Cream Platinum Rare – or your eye cream of choice. We developed the products [Cellular Eye Cream Platinum Rare and Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare] to work synergistically with one another for maximum benefits.
BeautyStat: What makes the new eye essence from La Prairie so special/different from the rest?
DS: The main breakthrough in the Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare is a powerful Platinum Peptide – an optimized compound based on platinum particles combined with an age-fighting Tetrapeptide. What’s extraordinary is that through this binding of Platinum with the peptides, this newly formed Platinum Peptide is protected from peptide-destroying enzymes that are naturally occurring in the skin. Therefore, allowing it to work more effectively and longer. This Platinum Peptide helps enhance firmness, reduce wrinkles in the eye area and improve skin elasticity and hydration. It’s worth noting that it targets specific challenges more intensely with benefits derived from technology not available until now.
