This is The Most Expensive Serum I've Ever Tried! Is It Worth Getting?

One of the beauties and perks of being a blogger or influencer is getting "free" stuff. I put quotation marks on free because most of the time, brands send stuff in exchange for a post or two, making the product the payment for the content. HAHA. You get it?

This $520 serum that I will be talking to you about today is one of those products that I got for "free" in exchange for a post, and I will be sharing all my thoughts about it. Is the serum really that good to be worth half a thousand dollars?! Let's find out!

La Prairie is a luxury skincare brand founded in Switzerland, and their purpose is to offer a path to rejuvenation. I've never heard of this brand before until I was given the opportunity to try some of their products out, and my gosh, I was shocked with their prices! When they said luxury, they weren't kidding! #dasesspensive!!! They have already sent me a few products from different collections, but the one we are focusing on today is their White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion which is a brightening serum. It is part of their White Caviar Collection, and a 30ml bottle is worth a whopping $520. You read that correctly! Five . Hundred . Twenty . Dollars .


They call it Liquid Light, and its exclusive formula is said to target age spots, redness, and greyness: the three chromatic light-barriers to a luminous complexion.

It claims to give us youthful, luminous skin in 4 weeks, and it also claims to help fade the appearance of dark spots, diminish redness, and shields skin from pollution.


  1. It smells heavenly! It has that expensive smell (which it should, because das esspensive!), and I don't really know how to explain it. But in case you were wondering, it DOESN'T have a floral scent, and I like that.
  2. A little goes a long way. The serum itself seems pretty thick once pumped out of the bottle, but it actually feels very watery once applied on the face. So you only need half a pump.
  3. Since it is watery, it glides on the face with ease, and the skin absorbs the product almost instantly. Feels very lightweight.
  4. It dries down to a tacky finish, and I like that it does, because the moisturizer that I'll be putting over it will stick better to my skin. 
  5. Now, to answer the question "DOES IT WORK?"..... it does! I did notice that my red spots went away in just one week, and my complexion looked brighter. I used it day and night for a whole month, and it didn't break me out. But is it worth $520? My answer is a big no. I've tried other serums that gave me the same results, and those weren't even a fraction of the cost of this white caviar serum. If you do want to splurge on skincare and you have that extra $500 lying around, then by all means, get this product because it works! But if you are on a budget, I would tell you to skip on this one.
I've already used up 1/4 of the bottle in just a month. Note: I use it day and night.

So after I've double-cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my face, I apply this serum all over my face and neck, then I go ahead and put on my eye cream and night time moisturizer. I still use this product to this day, and I'm so in love with how my skin looks right now. My skin isn't perfect, because I struggle with pores and blackheads on my nose area, but the rest of skin feels really soft and looks clean.


Here's my clean face, no edits whatsoever.

I don't have a before photo because my skin didn't really look that bad before, but this is how my skin looks now, after a month of using this serum.
