Night has always been associated with mystery, a time and place where dreams replace reality and the seemingly impossible becomes magically achievable. Such was the case when the scientists at La Prairie discovered Caviar Retinol, the key ingredient in the Swiss luxury skincare house’s newly launched Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil. 

The elusive component of caviar is extremely difficult to capture and can only thrive – and indeed exist – under the cover of darkness. It is obtained through a specially-designed extraction process that creates the ideal conditions to capture and retain both caviar lipids and caviar-derived retinol. This unique combination brings to life the coveted ingredient’s lifting, firming and line-smoothing potential.

In addition to being imbued with Caviar Retinol, Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil is designed to work with the skin’s natural circadian rhythms. While the skin focuses on protection during the day, its defences come down at night as collagen synthesis and epidermal renewal occurs. This leads to barrier permeability and water loss, decreasing the density of the extracellular network and functionality of the epidermis.

Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restores firmness through re-densifying and creates an immediate temporary outer barrier to minimise water loss. It also includes, for the first time within an oil, La Prairie’s Exclusive Cellular Complex to give new life and energy back to the skin.

But where the oil reaches maximum effectiveness is as the final step in the Skin Caviar Nighttime Ritual. After a thorough cleansing, the five-step routine begins with a few drops of Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion to help soothe and prepare the skin for the treatments to follow.

Next comes Skin Caviar Liquid Lift, infused with Caviar Premier and Caviar Absolute, for an unparalleled lifted appearance and visually regained volume. Skin Caviar Eye Lift then revives, raises and redefines the eye area along with Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream, both of which are enriched with Caviar Premier.

Finally, Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil seals in moisture and active ingredients from the preceding treatments to intensify the lifting and hydrating results. Its silky formula soothes and cushions the skin, and over time, lines and wrinkles appear reduced, skin looks firm, and moisture is sealed in.

All five products in the Skin Caviar Nighttime Ritual come in the collection’s signature cobalt blue packaging. Representing femininity, audacity and strength, the striking hue is also – fittingly – the colour of life at night. It, therefore, makes the perfect vessel for Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil, which is housed in a state-of-the-art glass-in-glass construction featuring cobalt blue on the outside and opaque black inside. The sleek design was created specifically to help protect the elusive properties of Caviar Retinol.

Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil is the ideal addition to any evening skincare routine. The nourishing oil brings much-needed hydration to the skin during the dry winter season.
