Tested for you: Needle-free skin rejuvenation “Platinum Rare Haute-Rejuvenation Mask” by La Prairie
Overnight skin rejuvenation without needles at the beauty doc. What woman over the age of a teenager wouldn’t want that? But boah – the price of the new anti-ageing mask for the night makes me gasp – well over 1000 euros. But…isn’t it Christmas again already!!!
I try to mentally justify the high price for the new rejuvenation concept to myself. After all, when you buy it you get two-in-one, so to speak, two products from La Prairie’s exquisite Platinum Rare line: 12 vials with a highly effective concentrate and a rich, pink-colored mask in a jar that is applied like a night cream, without the hassle of washing it off or washing it off again. In a nutshell: the “Haute-Rejuvenation Mask” is the ultimate in luxury, containing a wealth of the latest high-tech beauty know-how.
The design of the brand new member of the Platinum Rare family is ultra-stylish and cool. Even the unboxing of the typical silver-colored La Prairie box is an event in itself: two layers, each with six of the precious grey vials, embedded in a matching case with a ribbon for easy removal. The lower part of the box reveals a cream jar with a silver-colored lid, and the iconic diamond-shaped insert for the cream shimmers in light purple. There is also a small, compact silver spoon for removing the texture. Finally, a small, black-bound booklet explains how to use the needle-free skin rejuvenation treatment.
Anti-ageing without needles
Proven aesthetic medical treatments were the inspiration for the two-stage rejuvenation skin care, which makes it possible to completely avoid invasive treatment of the skin. It is based on the innovative Macro-Infusion technology. It is a special coating process that allows large molecules such as hyaluronic acid and collagen to pass through the skin barrier. Until now, this was only possible with the help of aesthetic procedures.
In addition, there are key active ingredients that La Prairie has spent a long time researching, such as Platinum Multi-Peptides and the exclusive Cellular Complex. The aim of haute rejuvenation science is to achieve a rejuvenated appearance of the skin in the long term.
Skin rejuvenation in two steps
My skin is cleansed and so ready for a needle-free rejuvenation. A lengthy general anesthetic that I have just undergone has not only taken its toll on my body, but also on my complexion. It looks restless, tired, exhausted and dehydrated.
The first step is called recharge: I unscrew the small cap of the gray vial and press the plunger on the other end to activate it. I let the crystal-clear liquid flow into the palm of my hand. I experience the Ultra-Potent Concentrate as a silky liquid gel. I spread it evenly over my face, neck and décolleté with my fingertips. I skip the eye area.
The rejuvenation concentrate immediately supplies the cells with high-molecular hyaluronic acid and collagen, the two essential components of the product. They increase the moisture in the skin, while the Macro-Infusion Technology plumps and smoothes it. I let the liquid gel absorb completely, which is very quick for my currently dehydrated skin. It really thirsts for it.
Step two is all about Reactivate: this is where the small, silver platinum spatula comes into play. I use it to take a generous amount of the pink cream from the jar and apply it to my fingertips. Using gentle, outward and upward gliding movements, I spread the cream texture over my face, neck and décolleté, again avoiding the eye area. The mask is not washed off, but is left on the skin overnight.
The rich texture has a nourishing effect and locks hyaluronic acid, collagen and ceramides into the skin. It supports the reactivation of skin-rejuvenating processes and ensures that the immediate effects of the Ultra-Potent Concentrate are maintained..
In fact, my skin appears plumper and smoother after the first application and is better moisturized. To ensure a long-term rejuvenation process with more elasticity and visible firmness, I use the anti-ageing night care twice a week – just before going to bed so that none of the expensive mask is lost on my pillow.
Refillable and recyclable
It should not go unmentioned that La Prairie has not only created an ultimate rejuvenation treatment with the “Haute-Rejuvenation Mask”, but has also focused on sustainability. The elegant cream jar is refillable and the vials can be completely recycled, as both components are made from the environmentally friendly plastic PP (Polypropylene). The formula is also free from PEG and microplastics. And where can you get a refill? Refill containers and replacement ampoules are available in La Prairie boutiques and online.

To travel during my profession as a beauty journalist was never enough for my. Also my six month on a world trip didn’t do it. It always attracts me to other cities, foreign countries, on roadtrips and places I don’t know yet. But I am not only interested in “culture” and “cream”, I am also fascinated by people who have stories to tell . Such unique experiences I want to share with you.
