I was one of those people who was afraid of face oil. Dab what on my already slick T-zone? Add another step to my skincare regime? Anti-age for what? I didn’t have the time for that—word to Sweet Brown.

Then, La Prairie just came in and turned my daily routine up a notch.

Earlier this year, the Cellulaire Suisse—so fancy—line from La Prairie introduced an Ice Crystal Dry Oil to its beauty arsenal. Packed with a rare complex strong enough power to combat environmental extremes (like arid air, and harsh winter wind), the virtually weightless oil supports your skin’s “natural lipid barrier function.” In other words, it seals in the moisture beyond what your favorite cream would.

Since I do tend to have naturally dewy skin, I’ve opted to use the product only at night by either blending it with my night cream or rubbing in a few drops as my last skincare step. Contrary to what you would think, the face oil hasn’t caused any breakouts; it’s actually kept my skin smoother than before. Plus, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been stopped with a “you glow girl!” on the street. Ok, maybe that’s a stretch, but take my word for it: ice, ice baby can be a good, good thing. — Angel Lenise
