La Prairie Anti-Aging Concealer, A Review

Always on the quest for the ingredients to achieve a flawless face, I knew that I could count on a brand known for its exceptional skincare. La Prairie's newest concealer offers up excellent coverage, with lots of wonderful bonuses. Anti-Aging Concealer with SPF 20 hides flaws while offering both skincare, and sun protection. Think of it as your cosmetic friend with benefits.

Most concealers effectively cover up blemishes and discoloration, with varying degrees of success. The problem is not necessarily in the performance, but in formulations that only address half of the problem. It is like sweeping dust under a rug, you may fool others, but you are ultimately only fooling yourself.

La Prairie's concealer acts as both cover-up and treatment. With an ingredient list that includes peptides and plant extracts, the silicone-based formula is as beneficial as it is effective. With ingredients that support collagen production, this concealer helps to keep skin firm. The formula moisturizes as well; and as the concealer acts to blur the appearance of surface imperfections, you can rest assured that it is also treating the areas of application.

I found the texture to be the perfect consistency- liquid, but not runny. Viscosity is always something to consider as harder, cream concealers don't always blend well, and thinner, runny concealers don't usually cover well enough. Migration can be an issue with a lot of concealers too, as your cover up can draw attention to imperfections by settling into fine lines, or traveling halfway across your face. Blissfully, La Prairie stands up to both the test of coverage, and the test of longevity. Upon application, with the convenient built-in doe foot applicator, this concealer easily lasted from 7 in the morning to 9 at night.

Standard before and after, so you can see this wanded wonder perform its magic.

As yet another added bonus, this concealer also has an SPF of 20, protecting delicate areas from the harsh UVA and UVB rays in the atmosphere. Suffice it to say, you can think of this as the Jill-of-all-trades of the concealer world.

La Prairie Anti-Aging Concealer stands up to the tests of wear and tear, and performs beautifully. It is available online, and at most fine retail stores.

This product looks fantastic, if not for the SPF alone. Just what I've been looking for. Thank you for posting :)

I'm a fan of La Prairie products. It's a good thing that most of their products contain SPF because everyone seems to want that in a beauty product.I know they are kind of expensive but they really work wonders. For now I've limited myself only to face and eye creams but I would love to try more of their products.I also like their perfumes :)
