Madame LA LA West Coast Face Bronzing Serum has got you covered
Olivia Palermo and Lana Del Ray are among the celebs pampering themselves with Madame LA LA products.

La Prairie is pure indulgence, we know. But one whiff of their products sends us into beauty heaven and their latest creation, White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion, best described as ‘liquid light’ is like silk on the skin targeting redness and age spots with visible results in just four weeks. Made with golden caviar extract, vitamin C oil in soluble form and Diglucosyl Gallic Acid (DGA), it combats three major types of skin chromatic disorders, namely lifestyle-induced cortisol, UV light and pollutants that damage the skin’s natural protective barrier. See ya, brown spots! INFO: Dhs2,205, See laprairie.ae for details
