La Prairie's new Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream has SPF protection and adjusts to a skin-flattering shade

If you're always on the lookout for the next, holy grail product that does it all, La Prairie may just have invented in. The brand's new Transforming Cream is one of those nifty makeup and skincare hybrids that literally breaths life into skin with an intuitive colour formula — made from a new generation of smart adaptive colour-correcting pigments. These 'clever' pigments identify the missing colours in the complexion that cause dullness and helps balance them, so skin looks glowing and perfected. The weightless, oil-free cream, comes in four shades — pick your closest match — and comes with a brush for a flawless application. It can also be built upon to create a more opaque coverage if needed. 

La Prairie Transformative Cream

But beyond its colour-adjusting pigments, the Transformative Cream has outstanding skincare properties. Containing the Swiss Ice Crystal Complex that is formulated into the other products in the range, this has daisy flower extract — Bellis perennis — to brighten the skin and even out the complexion. It also contains UVA protection and ample SPF of 30 to protect skin from  daily UV exposure, putting it pretty high up our beauty lust list.

$320. Available from mid-April at La Prairie counters
