As a general rule, anything topping the £100 mark for skin care and I switch off. However, I’ve never had anything but good experiences with Thalgo, so even though Thalgo Prodige is £130, I’m giving it a second look. There is so much information on this one, and I don’t want to write a thesis on the product, so I’ve cut it back to the very basics.
The word essence can mean a multitide of things in beauty, but in this instance, Thalgo Prodige des Océans Essence means a texture that falls somewhere between a serum and a fluid creme. It’s purpose is to re-energise the skin – give it back some radiance and vitality which is always something I’m chasing. Can you be too radiant? I think not.
Thalgo’s roots are in marine ingredients (their spa in Paris is something else – visit if you can!) so its no surprise that Thalgo Prodige focuses around that, although not exclusively. It contains a stonking 61 skin nutrients that target even tone, toned skin, radiance and a refined complexion. I’m already won over by the fact that it has 14 essential fatty acids and a whack of hyaluronic. On the skin, it feels quite active – like I can tell it’s there for a little while after use, but there is no discomfort. There’s no sheen or disruptive film and it feels as though it’s gone straight in.
It’s far too early to tell whether this £130 essence is money well spent – but of all the super-pricy creams and potions out there, and based on my previous experiences with Thalgo products, I’d put my cash on this over and above just about anything else in that bracket.
