    How would the serum in this kit fit in with the formula 15? Which is Fab by the way. Also could we have body creams and serums thankyou

    Hi, been using the gentle cleanser as I’ve got extremely sensitive, delicate skin with large areas of scarring. This is the only cleanser that doesn’t make my skin red and itch but which other products would be good to help my skin heal while being gentle?

    What is the best way to apply the No Concealer Concealer please? It sometimes “cakes” and I am not the only one with this problem.
    Kindest regards

    I have hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage, from what I’ve read it seems that face firming activator or formula 15 could help with this, is this correct

    Hi I’ve been using Perricone for about four months. It took a while for me to notice a difference but am sure that the jawline is now less droopy. Being afro-caribbean, I don’t suffer much from wrinkles but am prone to sagging. I use cold plasma Sub-D, Formula 15 and the Neuropeptide facial Cream. Of course these are complemented with the Concentrated Restorative Treatment and the Facial finishing cream. Am I using the correct combination to help with a sagging jawline?

    The best products for someone aged 66 with some lines nod slackening

    I have 3 question:1. Do you need to use a primer or finishing powder over no foundation foundation? 2. Will no foundation foundation be formalated to be worn by us girls with a darker skintone? 3. Could you recommend products for a darker skintone has no wrinkle, slight slackning, normal skintone that has suddenly become, dry, dehydrated, and stressed (2 spots). On a good day my biggest bug bear is dark pigmentation on the cheekbone areas of the face – the pericone website has a blue plasma set with a citrus wash, restorative cream, but unsure if it would be too strong for my skin. Also I slot in both pericone oils as and when I need them,. Although, could the moisture rich cream be a better mix, for the day and restorative for the nights ? And don’t get me started on the eyes, which also have no wrinkles, its all so confusing and expensive if you get it wrong! I already have almost all this coming tsv, so i will no be purchasing it this time round, but would like an indication as to what to look out for in the future or even thursday?
    Kind regards

    I bought a mini kit of trial sized cleanser, cold plasma cream, moisturising cream and vitamin C cream. I loved the kit, it was so incredibly firming and smoothing. My normally combination skin became extremely dry in December and has stayed that way ever since, heavily peeling and flaking mainly from my cheeks. What could I add to fight the dryness and flaking please? Also, what eye cream should I use to reduce wrinkles and firm the eye area please?

    Hi, I am a female who has just turned 40 and have noticed my skin has changed almost overnight!? I have always had good skin but have now noticed pigmentation on my forehead as well as lines being more noticeable in this area. I’m also experiencing dry flaky patches with a few small breakouts which I never suffered with before. Help! – Which products from the Perricone range would you recommend? Thank you

    Hi I wonder if you could explain why the cleanser contains sodium laureate sulphate?
    I have been told that this is not good for the skin. Does Dr Perricone include this ingredient for a reason?

    I have been using Perricone products now for approximately 2 ½ years. I am a regular QVC viewer, but would really appreciate some specific advice in advance of tomorrow’s show and the TSV.
    I am a big fan and have quite a collection of Perricone products, but not entirely sure if they are the best ones for me or if there are more effective ones I could be using. Here is a list of what I use.
    • Nutritive Cleanser
    • Face firming Moisturiser
    • Firming eye cream
    • Neuropeptide Deep Wrinkle Serum
    • Blue Plasma
    • Acyl Glutathione
    • Advanced face firming activator – although nearly run out and wondered if Formula 15 would do the same job or better?
    • Concentrated restorative treatment
    • Neuropeptide facial cream
    Quite a list I know !!
    Hope you don’t mind but I have a few questions to ask Karra.
    How best to use the products I have?
    Which products I can or should be layering?
    Whether these are the right products for me, not necessary for me just now or if there are more effective Perricone products I would be better considering that you would recommend.
    Which should I be using day and night or just at night.
    Are any of the products designed as treatments and therefore not necessary to use every day.
    In the past I’ve tried Cold Plasma & Cold Plasma eye – but I’ve run out now. Not re-purchased just yet as unsure if necessary with all other products I’m using. I was pleased with it and it suited my skin so happy to replace one of the other products if these would give me better results.
    I’m considering trying the other cleanser, as read some good reviews, but again not sure if necessary for me just yet.
    I am 42 and thanks to Perricone have good skin. I do not suffer from breakouts, have even tone, some freckles, have a few fine lines on the outer edges of my forehead. My main concerns are my 11 lines in between my eyes. I have a couple of fine lines on my neck but nothing of real concern and the odd few underneath my eyes …but they are only very fine and thankfully no crows feet. I wouldn’t say I have any slackening at this stage.
    Looking forward to tomorrow show and thanks in advance of your valuable advice.
    Kind regards

    Is the face finishing moisturiser suitable for ladies in their mid forties or should I be looking for a more anti ageing moisturiser? I am still using the previous TSV from perricone and am now converted as I have found such a difference to my skin

    I love the range and have had great results with most of the products I have tried. Can you tell me which is the best eye cream for me to use, I only have a few fine lines but my eye lid and just under my brow is starting to droop. I am 47 and the products in the range have solved my sensitive and flaky issues and I now
    have great skin it’s just my eyes.

    Hi kara
    Can I use a different cream over the blue plasma at night also can you use the eye lid serum under the eyes to
    Thank you

  24. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 3:34 pm -  Reply

    Hi Victoria,
    Yes to both of those points, I hope you enjoy using the range. If you want more moisture after the eyelid serum you can layer a moisturiser eye cream on top e.g firming eye cream (one of Ali’s favourites). x

  25. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 6:05 pm -  Reply

    Hi Amanda Evans,
    Dr Perricone has specifically developed the Acyl Eye lid serum to specifically address the concerns you are experiencing. You can also apply an eye cream on top for additional moisture if required, it is a potent product so one pump is all you will need for both eyes (above and below the eye).

    Hi Lorna,
    Face Finishing Moisturiser is absolutely suitable for those in their 40’s.

  27. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 6:06 pm -  Reply

    Hi Natalie,
    Use the Nutritive Cleanser, this is great to address pore related issues, additionally you could combine this with the advanced face firming activator (228780)

  28. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 6:07 pm -  Reply

    Hi Maureen,
    The TSV really is a great starting point as you get a complete regime, if you wanted to just invest in one single product try the Cold Plasma Face, this is Dr Perricone’s hero product and will power pack your existing skincare routine.

  29. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 6:08 pm -  Reply

    Hi Cecilia,
    I would advise the Nutritive Cleanser which is great for irritated skin, the Face Finshing moisturiser is recommended for combination skin and the Intense Pore Minimiser may also be worth looking at, it contains salicylic acid which is great for combination skin and breakouts.

  30. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 6:09 pm -  Reply

    Hi Louise Pendlebury,
    Thanks and great question – for the problem fine lines and 11 lines, would recommend the following regime from your selection. In general, our product application runs thinnest to thickest textures. Have placed below a guideline for you and when you might want to “boost” the skin with a little extra anti-age from Dr Perricone:
    Morning – Nutritive Cleanser
    Serum/ targeted treatment – Deep Wrinkle Serum on stubborn 11 lines and fine lines on outer forehead
    Treatment – Advanced Face Firming Treatment – note FORMULA 15 is recommended for those looking for a step up from Advanced Face Finishing Activator
    Moisturizer – Face Finishing Moisturizer
    Eye – Firming Eye Cream
    Booster – for days when your skin needs a bit more “help” apply Acyl Glutathtione to the 11 lines and Neuropeptide FACIAL Cream to facial contours (e.g.: cheekbones) after moisturizer as a toning top-up.
    Morning – Nutritive Cleanser
    Unpeel – Blue PLasma
    Serum/ targeted treatment – Deep Wrinkle Serum on the stubborn 11 lines and fine lines on outer forehead
    Treatment – Concentrated Restorative Treatment
    Moisturizer – Face Finishing Moisturizer
    Booster – for days when your skin needs a bit more “help” apply Acyl Glutathtione to the 11 lines and Neuropeptide FACIAL Cream to facial contours (e.g.: cheekbones) after moisturizer as a toning top-up.
    Eye – Firming Eye Cream

    Hi Caroline,
    For all of the concerns you have listed this Today’s Special Value would be perfect for you, the serum will tackle irregular skin tone, will help to restore clarity and an evenness to the skin. You also have your staples including cleanser, moisturiser (great for the majority of skin types) and the iconic No Foundation Foundation to perfect, provide UVA & UVB protection, anti ageing benefits.

    Hi Susan,
    The Chia Serum (200320) is great at tackling any dryness you are experiencing. In terms of eye product the Firming Eye Cream (which is available as a birthday treat today) is Dr Perricone’s most nourishing and hydrating eye cream whihc provides multiple benefits to the delicate eye contour.

  33. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 6:13 pm -  Reply

    Hi Maureen Keating,
    Would recommend items from either Acyl Gluthatione or NeuroPeptides collection is Dr Perricone’s most advanced anti ageing collection e.g neuropeptide firming moisturiser is packed with his gold standard sciences to provide a real muscle in anti ageing.

    Hi Christine, Thanks – we think this combination is wonderful as well! Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Nila, £109.90 which offers substantial savings – regular size of four products would come in at over £200 but we have also managed to supersize the Face Finishing Moisturizer which offer much more value

    Hi Pauline, Our sensitive skin set (203274) offers comprehensive antiaging skincare for sensitive skin types. This kit offers full sizes at value with Gentle Cleanser, Nourishing Moisturizer and Firming Eye Cream – succinct skin care staples for sensitive skin types.

    Hi Shirley, perfect combination to target appearance of sagging jawline . Thanks for your feedback!

    Hi Dawn, thanks for your question – for rosacea would seek medical advice on this directly.

  39. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 6:15 pm -  Reply

    Hi Dorothy, would recommend the Todays Special Value especially with High Potency Amine Face which is designed to help address the appearance of patchy, uneven skin tone and clarity. In addition, you could slot in the Concentrated Restorative Treatment (228781) in the evening.

    Hi Fabienne, preparation is pivotal for all make-up. Make sure to apply eye cream before No Concealer Concealer. For the No Concealer Concealer application, simply require one small dot on and pat in – do not rub. Dr. Perricone recommends dispensing one pump, warming between ring fingers and patting gently along the lower eye contours, as well as upper eye lid and inner contours of the eyes if desired. Any excess can also be applied on targeted areas of the face to cover imperfections.

    Hi Sarah, Great results from Gentle Cleanser and top reviewed from in QVC UK. Our Sensitive Skin Set (203274) provides you with a moisturizer and eye cream from the same range with great value.

    Hi Glyn, Thanks for feedback and Formula 15 is great! You could use the High Potency Amine in the TSV during the summer months as your day time treatment if you desire.

  43. Will Gowing June 20, 2013 at 6:16 pm -  Reply

    Hi Nicola, Cold PLasma for Face is great for all-round anti-age boosting, but Dr Perricone specifically deveoped Cold Plasma Sub D (225995) to address the appearance of a crepey neck, as well as sagging along the jowls and chin.

  44. Will Gowing June 21, 2013 at 11:58 am -  Reply

    Hi Kate, Dr Perricone recommends that it is important to make distinction between sodium lauryl sulphate and sodium laureth sulphate. Please note that Dr Perricone uses sodium laureth sulphate in this wash-off formula. X
