Argentum La Potion Infinie
I cannot describe how excited I was to be given the opportunity to try this cream, as at £147.00 it would need to be seriously and I mean SERIOUSLY good for me to buy it !
Let me start by saying I am not a Beauty expert, and this is the opinion of a very ordinary woman :)
I have in the past tried high end cream like La Prairie and Creme de la Mere, and quite honestly not seen what the hype is about, and I don't believe in the adage that you get what you pay for in skincare nowdays as there are some fabulous brands out there without high end prices, ok moving on, let's talk about la Potion Infinie, it arrived in a black box totally full of shredded paper with a ton of literature, first off I would usually freak at such packaging, however it was used solely to house the jar for protection and of course can be
The literature that comes with the product is lovely if not a little complicated, you can register your Jar online to ensure that you are getting the original patented formula, which is pretty cool to be fair, I once got conned with some fake GHD straighteners and only discovered it on checking registration online, so I like this idea, coz at that money you want it to be genuine !
Argentum Apothecary is based on 12 Archetypes and each jar contains 1 of 12 cards I got the Sage card. apparently these cards enhance your energy ? to be honest I am not into that sort of thing but if you are it's all a bit fabulous and meaningful.
Moving on to the Jar itself, it is a Very dark Violet almost black heavy weight glass which has been specifically designed to protect the product from harmful light and keep your product fresh, it also comes with a little plastic spatula to make sure no mucky germs get into the jar from your fingers.
From the moment you open the lid the smell of the cream is expensive, it reminds you of the most luxurious spa treatment ever, really hard to describe not flowery or perfumed as such but a beautiful ultra clean fragrance. This is high end luxury and you really can tell.
This product is 99.5 % Natural and the first ingredient you see on the list is Colloidal Silver (Hydrosol) there is a whole host of natural ingredients one being Caffine known for it's skin tightening properties, I wont go into the whole list as I am not a skincare expert, and we only need to know if does what it says on the box.
Ok, here we go, From the very first use you can visibly see a difference, the cream is not too thick it smooths on easily and just melts into your skin, a little goes a very long way with this product, so managed to do my neck and decolletage easily with one scoop. Over time my skin has improved on a daily basis, you can use it twice a day, I chose not to, so only used it in the mornings, it was enough to see super fast results.
Ok, Price ! No it isn't cheap at £147.00 However, it is the only cream you will need, it covers face, eyes and neck, also you honestly don't need a primer as it leaves a beautiful base for foundation. So when you think of the price of your Serum, moisturiser, eye cream, neck cream, and primer, I think you would probably be looking at well over the cost of this jar, although it is an ouch moment to pay that out in one hit i know.
That said, Should you buy it ? YES, Should you put it on your Birthday or Christmas list ? YES I think you should, and I don't think you would be disappointed at the results, smoother, more refined and definitely less wrinkled skin, whats not to love ?
If you want to treat yourself it is Available to buy here.
