Perricone MD Advanced Face Firming Activator 2oz
Made a Difference for Me
I used this product two years ago. Finished the bottle, but did not buy another because I felt that I was not noticing results except for the fact that this product did seem to smooth out my skin texture. Looking back, I now realize that smoothing out my skin texture was exactly what my skin neded.
During the time I used the product, I had my driver's license renewed, and had a picture taken. At the time I was shocked; it was one of the best close up pictures I had ever taken! A few months ago I looked at my license pic and it hit me like a ton of bricks--my skin actually looked radiant and I certainly looked younger.
I started back with Perricone, the nutritive cleanswer and this product to begin with, and within a month I could see subtle differences. With every week I see a noticeable improvement. I will definitely stick with these two products because they work for ME at this stage of my life.
That being said, I read a lot of reviews on Perricone products here and I have come to the conclusion that these products do indeed work, but not on everyone. We all have our individual skin issues and different needs., No product, even Perricone, is a one size fits all. I've done some experimenting and some products work great, some amazing, some not at all. I will stick with the amazing and perhaps with the great, but return the others.
I like to read the reviews, but I don't let a negative review keep me from trying a product, unless the reviews are overwhelmingly negative. I can only say that I've tried a lot of products between age 16 and 61 and I take care of my skin, always have. However, I seem to get the best results from the Perricone line even though I have returned some products. This is not to say they were "bad," they just didn't address MY skin issues/concerns.
Another comment which frequently comes up is the odor of the product(s). Yes, I've noticed it, but here's my secret: As soon as I open a bottle, it goes into the refrigerator. I do not keep any of my products in the medicine cabinet or elsewhere. I've noticed that upon opening a new product, yes there is a fishy odor. Even though my house is air conditioned, I would notice the odor getting stronger as each week went by. If I keep my products in the refrigerator from the beginning, I notice that the smell does not get stronger. Once applied, it dissipates within 10 minutes. Try it, I hope it helps you if you have a problem with the smell of the product. It is also refreshing to apply a chilly product to your face, especially in summer.
I never purchase a skin care product or cosmetic if I cannot return it within a reasonable period of time. After many years of tossing things into the trash, I have become very, very picky about what I purchase for my skin. If it is expensive, hopefully I can budget to purchase it, but if it doesn't work for me, it goes right back. This way I can afford to take care of myself and not have a lot of products that just don't work for ME.
Thank you QVC for having a policy where I can try products and return them if they do not work for me. There are shipping charges, yes, but I feel like its a small price to pay to find products that work for me. As long as this policy remains in place, I will be a customer forever!
this one works
i gave it four stars because of the price, ouch. i tried this one in the 7-piece $50.00 kit. im 50 and use it on my neck too. really makes my skin there look younger, tighter (without a tightening feeling), and just less looser for lack of a better term, more firm. i hadnt used it in a while and before work one night i put it on. later, at work i was looking in a mirror and thought wow look at my skin. what did i do? my regimen that night was using mary kay microdermabrasion scrub in the shower, then this cream afterwards. the real difference lasts about 2- 3hrs. then starts to wear off. thats what i think of it.
Very Very Disaqppointed
Smells horrible like camel urine or ammonia. Despite that fact, I used it religiously and saw absolutely NO results. I don't understand how others are getting great results, but it did absolutely nothing for me.
OUTSTANDING SKIN CARE!!!
This product is one of the very first porducts I started using 2 years ago from Dr. Perricone. This activator does WONDERS for your skin. You can start seeing results in a matter of a couple of days. I've shared my great skin care secret with many of my friends who now also use this product. Takes YEARS off the look of the age of your skin. This takes anti-aging skin care to a whole other level!
This is the worst foundation I have ever tried. It does not cover anything, I was expecting something better than that! Went Back! Better products on the market, try one of them
Love this stuff, it is great, my skin has never looked better and at 52 I look 32. I use many of Dr.Perricone products and also a few of Dr. Denese and they do make a difference. My pores are actually smaller and my skin firmer. Anyone wondering give it a try!!
I have tried many, many different products over the years, including some from rival shopping networks. Let me tell you, I saw IMMEDIATE AND DRAMATIC results with this and several other Perricone MD products. I bought a 6 piece starter kit, and my skin is forever changed. I lost the lines around my mouth and the sagging skin that was beginning to develop along the bottom of my face. The best compliment was received last week when my boss asked me how old I was, and when I said 48, she said, "OMG, you look like you are in yout early 30's! Your skin is absolutely flawless"! (my boss is a woman, so no one was flirting with me or had ulterior motives in the compliment). I hardly have to wear any foundation anymore at all. Just a little blush, mascara, lip gloss and I am ready to go! I am now a PERRICONE WOMAN FOR LIFE!!!! THANK YOU, DR. PERRICONE, YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE!!
Really great product!
My pores were getting so big I could see them from a distance in a regular bathroom mirror and they were scarey! Didn't think there was much hope. After using this, along with his high potency amine face treatment and high potency evening repair, I can't see my pores at all in the bathroom mirror, and my pores are not scarey in a 10x magnifying mirror!
I've tried a lot of things, even more expensive treatments, and did not get this kind of result. Thank you QVC for carrying Dr. Perricone's products, they really work.
Gentle and Precise
Amounts dispursed are in the perfect amount to target the precise areas of the face. The palm of your hand will even feel a difference when dabbing in to apply to your face. Less is better!!!! Enjoy....your face will start to feel like a baby's bottom.
Felt the Difference after One Use
I've been experimenting with Dr. Perricone's products trying to find the best "mix" for my ever-changing 50+ year old skin. I got this in the old sampler configuration last year and just started using it. It is the BEST serum I've ever tried (and I've tried MANY pricy ones). In one use, my skin was smoother, softer, more radient, and the pore size in this HOT TX HUMIDITY (which seems to make pores grow in size) was definitely minimized. I have normal to dry skin. This didn't add oil at all, though, so you oily-skin ladies shouldn't shy away from it. Get it NOW ... and please put this on auto-delivery, QVC, with an easy-pay option.
Holy Grail Product!!!
I LOOOOOOOOVE this product! It tightens pores, making them nearly invisible. It also makes your skin GLOW like crazy! This is a powerhouse product and IO can not believe anyone has anything bad to say about it! I cannot live without this! I have noticed hat I think they have tried masking the original scent, which never bothered me before....
silky smooth pore minimizer
Just started using it so too soon to see results, but the product does glide on, smooths the skin and seems to minizie the appearance of lines and pores. Used after Cold Plasma and before Neuropeptide Facial Cream, the combination makes my skin feel very dewy and hydrated. So far, so good - fingers crossed for BIG results!
