Why I love Perricone skincare…


Perricone Nutritive CleanserPerricone, from Dr Nicholas Perricone, is a fantastic skincare brand and is what I would call a true doctor brand.

Dr Nick is a working dermatologist and nutritionist, and specialises in making his own worldwide patented ingredients. You can use any of his products as part of your usual routine.

At the cheaper end of the scale, I would recommend the Perricone Nutritive Cleanser. This gel cleanser is a bit of an unsung hero for this price range.

It is gel based, however it still takes off all water-based make-up in a way that usually only cream cleansers can. It still contains some of his patented ingredients, so this is an affordable way to try out this range. It does have an unusual smell, but this is because of the potency of his products and it doesn’t linger on the skin.

Perricone Advanced Face Firming Activator SerumAnother recommended product that is still affordable is the Face Firming Activator Serum. This fantastic product can be used underneath any moisturiser you already use. You will see a difference in the shape and size of your pores and the smoothness of your skin almost immediately – it’s amazing, you can feel it working on your face. This serum offers results within a few minutes.

Perricone Neuropeptide Firming MoisturiserIf you’re willing to pay a bit more for your skincare then try the Neuropeptide Firming Moisturiser. I love this as a night treatment and if like me you suffer more from slackening than wrinkling then this is perfect. It is more expensive, but this is because it contains more patented ingredients and is more concentrated.

Give Perricone products a go if you want different results than what you will get from aromatherapy brands. These products are straight from the clinician, and so are very effective. Each product works well individually, so add them to your usual salon, aromatherapy or retail skin routines.

    Hi Alison,
    Please advice me what I need to do with the Perricone 2 Piece Firming & Restorative Collection. One is for day time and one is for night time. Once I put the cream on, do I need to put day/night mositurizer on top>

    Hi Alison,
    I am using perricone and I need your advice.
    I am sing the cold plasma and the face firming activator,
    Do I put the cold plasma under the activator, or do I put the activator on first then the cold plasma.

    Hi Alison,
    I am a bit of an Elemis junkie, but was so impressed with Perricone at the Beauty Day, thank you for inviting me, brilliant day,that I have just bought the Perricone tsv. One query Elemis always said you must use a toner after washing off any cleanser with water, but there appears to be no toner with perricone or is it incorporated with the cleanser. Day two and already am sure I can see results, also ordered neurotepides but not yet arrived.
