Nothing tests a person’s resolve to toughen it out than a frigid winter that wreacks havoc on fragile skin.  Cold biting winds that sting, excessively dry outdoor and indoor temps, raw, chafed, and cracked skin can all spell disaster for skin’s balance and skincare regimen.  Having the right products, not only for your skin type, but also for the season, are key to effective and gentle cleansing, maintaining hydration levels, minimizing the effects of aging, and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Today’s article features a recent product line I tested.  Caviar of Switzerland ranked very high with me for being effective, while delivering exceptional results.  Each product was an indulgent luxury, and would be an ideal addition to anyone’s “age diminishing” skincare regimen, and as a former devotee and La Prairie user, Caviar of Switzerland is just as superior performing, but not as costly!

~ My Experiences ~

When I first began my test with Caviar of Switzerland, my skin was in fairly good condition, with the exception of a few minor concerns…a few noticeable fine lines under the eye area and forehead, frown lines between my eyes on the forehead, a slightly dry patch under my chin, and a grainy appearance of my neck…yes, these are minor issues given my age!  I used the Intensive Eye Cream, Cellular Repair Serum, and 24h Regenerating Cream.  Each of these products not only performed beautifully, delivering noticeable results after only a few times of use, greatly diminishing these “concerns”, but the skin texture improved, became more firm and silky to the touch.  Hydration levels remained throughout the day and my skin looked and felt healthier, toned, and more nourished.  Skin tone was evened out and my skin appeared luminous.  Products went on effortlessly, were quickly absorbed, and left no tacky residue.  Texture of all products was rich and dense, and luxurious to the touch.  When all three products were used synchronous within my skincare regimen, my skin reacted favorably and appeared to improve with each day’s use.

Intensive Eye Cream ~ This gentle and non-irritating product provided exceptional hydration to the delicate under eye area.  One of the few eye care products I’ve been able to use on my fragile under eye tissue without any irritation, tearing, or product migration.

Cellular Repair Serum ~ This product has a silky and luxurious quality that primed my skin beautifully with revitalizing hydration; improves circulation and cellular development.

24h Regenerating Cream ~ As if the other two products weren’t star performers, this was an outstanding product; it hydrated, nourished, and revitalized the skin, while delivering vital nutrients to the skin that benefit circulation and cellular improvement.

The family of Caviar of Switzerland products definitely restored and revitalized my winter-weary skin beautifully; my skin looked healthier and felt renewed.  For additional information on these outstanding products, visit

That’s it for this edition.  Until the next one, remember to take care of yourself and those you love.
