Introducing: Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Nourishing Moisturizer


Perricone MD has launched a line of products for sensitive skin, called the Hypoallergenic Line.

I have used Perricone’s products for YEARS….. we’re talking…. a long time. Whenever I can afford it – I always go Perricone, because it’s just WORTH IT. It’s quality products – that last forever – and the results are obvious. I asked if they would send me some products from this new line, and they happily agreed*!

I’ve been using this moisturizer for about 2-3 weeks now, and I’m not even kidding, my skin is dramatically different. I never thought I had sensitive skin before – but the difference in using a product made for sensitive skin is shocking.

When you’ve come to the end of summer, you don’t realize how badly your skin needs a little love. This product really transformed my skin into a healthier, more radiant skin. The moisturizer is formulated with the therapeutic benefits of olive polyphenols.

Perfect for sensitive skin that’s dry, dull or damaged, this gentle moisturizer prevents the visible signs of aging. It provides deep hydration while helping repair the skin, keeping it firm and toned. It leaves skin feeling soft and smooth, making it a perfect primer for flawless makeup application.

Gentle enough for sensitive skin, even after cosmetic procedures, this product is formulated with hydroxytyrosol, an extract from the olive fruit, and oleuropein, from the olive leaf. Both are patented and selected by Dr. Perricone for their therapeutic, regenerative and protective benefits.

Introducing Photo Plasma, The Skin Shield, by Perricone MD!

What I should do for this post is take a picture of the sun spots on my face – and use that as what NOT to do with your sun protection. I have the worst sun spots that come out every year around this time. I think years of sun – and sunbathing have made my skin go cray cray! What I SHOULD have been using all along is a product like this. Something that makes my skin feel amazing PLUS protects from EVERYTHING. What I’ve always hated about sunscreens, etc., is I feel you don’t get good products that go hand in hand with protection. My skin is so sensitive, I have to be careful about which protective products I use, because I could end up doing more harm than good!

With a product like this – from a brand I know and trust – I can protect my skin, all the while nourishing it.

Tackling the 10 signs of environmental stress (sun exposure, dehydration, harsh wind, smoke, pollution, etc.) this lightweight formula creates an invisible barrier to guard against natural aggressors and age-accelerating sun damage.

Astaxanthin, the superfood found in red algae, steals the spotlight among the cast of powerful anti-aging ingredients. Known for its natural anti-radiation benefits, astaxanthin has photo-protective benefits to further protect skin from the elements. In addition to acting as a natural anti-inflammatory (the backbone of Dr. Perricone’s philosophy on healthy aging) astaxanthin naturally delivers the pretty pink sorbet hue to brighten up your medicine cabinet amongst a sea of white skincare saviors.

Luxurious in texture and oil-free, Photo Plasma leaves skin with a velvet soft, dewy finish and acts as a natural primer to keep makeup in place. No tackiness like traditional sunscreen – skin is glowing and radiant without logging hours poolside. Photo Plasma nourishes all skin types and provides non-chemical, broad spectrum SPF30 protection.

If you look at all this product does, you’ll run out and buy it yourself! It moisturizes, protects, primes, and softens your skin! SOLD!

Ahh my arch nemesis pores! I have found products to hide them, clean them but I would really just love for them to disappear  While they may not be possible I have found the next best thing. Perricone MD Intensive Pore Treatment works quickly and effectively. Within the first few days of use I started to notice my skin was less oily then about mid way through the first week my pores appeared about half their usual size!

My pores are less visible it has also helped exfoliate and deep clean the pores , reducing pesky blackheads. It is a higher ticket item but I found I needed very little product to cover my T zone where I have issues. Two weeks in now and my skin is looks better, my makeup goes on smoother and stays put with no mid-day shine! If you struggle with enlarged pores this is the product for you.

Perricone MD Intensive Pore Treatment
Designed to address the causes of enlarged pores rather than mask the symptoms, Intensive Pore Treatment exfoliates skin, firms pore walls and controls oil production to reduce shine. Dr. Perricone’s signature patented ingredients, Alpha Lipoic Acid and DMAE, work synergistically to perfect pores and help them appear smaller. ALA purifies skin and acts as a natural exfoliator to cleanse skin on a deep level and resurface cells, addressing acne scars, discoloration and hyperpigmentation. DMAE firms skin and tightens pore walls for a taut, youthful complexion. Designed for ALL skin types, this formula is oil-free, silicone-free and excellent for blemish-prone skin.

Perricone MD Celebrates 15th Anniversary with New Formula 15!

I started using the new Perricone MD Formula 15 just a few weeks ago and I am loving the difference I see in my skin. I always put the most of my beauty budget into skincare and make sure to use high-quality products. So to see such a  visible difference in my skin was surprising albeit a nice surprise. The  patented Formula 15 is very effective and seems to be what my skin had been missing.

Formula 15 has an incredibly lightweight texture and seems to just melt into my skin, I like the slight hint of citrus. I noticed with the first use my face felt smoother and my foundation seemed to stay put better. After two weeks of use my skin is feeling tighter, more toned, and it has really helped improve the texture of my skin. 


Perricone MD Formula 15
In celebration of the 15th anniversary, Perricone MD is launching Formula 15, a highly advanced formulation of Dr. Perricone’s original Face Firming Activator – the product that put him on the map over a decade ago.

The active ingredient and powerful anti-ager, Alpha Lipoic Acid, had never been introduced in clinical skincare but over the last decade, advancements and breakthroughs in the skincare industry thanks largely to Dr. Perricone’s groundbreaking research, have set new standards and raised the bar for what people have come to expect from skincare, redefining the anti-aging category and making Formula 15 available to the masses. Dr. Perricone’s innovation has quite literally come full circle.

Formula 15 addresses fine lines and wrinkles, surface imperfections, dullness and rough texture. Formula 15 minimizes the length, depth and width of a wrinkle to impart unsurpassed smoothness and radiance and is formulated with Dr. Perricone’s signature, patented sciences to contain Alpha Lipoic Acid and DMAE in the highest concentrations available in any Perricone treatment product.

Powered by the revolutionary delivery system, NTP Complex ensure optimal results by driving the actives deep within the skin and takes a revolutionary approach to reversing the appearance of winkles in three modes of action:
· Addressing micro-scarring beneath the skin before they surface wrinkles
· Smoothing visible surface wrinkles
· Firming and tightening the skin
Perricone MD Formula 15 will be launching in October 2012 at Sephora for $125.
