Perricone MD Neuropeptide Firming Moisturizer
I got this moisturizer in a TSV last month and it's excellent. At first I did not care for the moisutrizer and soon realized I was using too much. Do not overdo this moisturizer. The less I use the better my results. I am so happy I went on auto delivery and will be gettng this cream for the next two years.
A MUST HAVE
I use the Neuropeptide Firming Moisturizer and the Formula 15, every day. It is an amazing product and the results are incredible. While at work the other day, a co-worker asked me what I used on my face. I gave her a strange look and she continued to say how my skin was so smooth and wrinkle free (I am 50). I will say that prior to using the Perricone products, my skin was not so smooth and wrinkle free. My only concern is the price. I receive the products on auto delivery and at a special price(two year) that ends in September. I am praying that QVC offers another special on auto delivery and a cheaper package deal.
I primarily use Perricone serums. But I noticed that as I branched out to other treatments and moisturizers, I’d have reactions to it. Now, after years of suffering from break-outs associated with such trials, I research the ingredients. As a warning for those with sensitive skin, I offer this advice. This product contains Isopropyl palmitate which causes skin irritations AND clogs the pores. Possible skin irritation for those with sensitive skin is a useful warning for those with sensitive skin, but for the rest of the population- why would you want a product that clogs the pores…?
And no, I saw no anti-aging benifits either...
Not worth the money
I was skeptical and apparently for good reason. This product did not make ANY difference at all. I did a multiweek side by side comparison with less costly product and the other product proved to be much better. I also must comment on the horrible chemical odor when applied and for numerous hour after application. I would not recommend this product or brand just hasn't proven value for the very high price.
Wow! Never knew my skin could be so smooth!
I, like many ladies, have tried numerous moisturizers. Some promise to firm, some to hydrate, some to give your skin that nice clean glow. Well, this is the one that delivers. It only takes a small amount each application, so it will last a long time; probably will get 3-4 months out of this one jar. I use it morning and night after I wash with the Perricone MD face wash. My skin feels like silk. I have some acne scars from my teenage years. This moisturizer has dramatically reduced the appearance of these scars and gives them a smooth look. This also firms my skin, but not to where I feel my face being so tight. You can just tell it is the right amount for your skin. It is pricey and I have never spent this much on a product, nor do I usually write a review. This was worth the time to tell others how awesome this is and you won't be disappointed!
I have used this product (from the TSV with the cleanser and serum) for 9 months on half my face. The other half I used just JM argon oil....I see no difference. The smell and texture are good. I need a little more moisture. Not worth the price.
IF YOU’RE PONDERING PURCHASE OF PERRICONE PRODUCT…
…the Neuropeptide Firming Moisturizer is an ideal choice. I have used it on my face and neck for the last fourteen nights, in conjunction with Perricone MD Firming Neck Therapy (A221875), and the resilient results are visible. My skin is surreptitiously synchronized with increased -- moisture, firmness, hydration, toning and texture. How’s that for a menu that delivers? Each time I go through the process of application, the more my skin is captive to the synergy of the product… ergo -- the longer you use it, the more plentiful the results. How could it not be so, since Perricone’s research and formulation includes Neuropeptides, full of nutrients and antioxidants plus ‘DMAE’ are sweetening for the skin. I recall a cliché -- ‘Good things come to those who wait’; my cliché is: ‘Healthy skin comes to those who persevere in its care.’ Another product is now added to heighten my change-over to Perricone MD Cosmeuticals. Thanks to QVC’s TSV’s and easy-pay programs, and to Dana Bledsoe’s confidence in this line of skin care, my change-over continues successfully! Pledging to achieve healthy skincare is not a whim, it’s a commitment of LTC and TLC -- initials deciphered equal: Long-Term-Care and Tender-Loving-Care. “And the night shall be filled with music, /And the cares, that infest the day, /Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs, /And as silently steal away.” --Longfellow, ‘The Day Is Done’
Not the best in the Perricone line
I purchased this after purchasing the Activator, Cream, and Serum. I thought if I would purchase more in the family, better the results. This particular creme is not the best, I wouldn't spend more money on this product if you have the cream and activator.
Sorry I Purchased
I purchased the TSV with this moisturizer and the cleanser. Before I received the TSV, I purchased the Face Firming Moisturizer, which I love and got a sample of the Neuropeptide Firming moisturizer. That was a month ago and I'm still using it everyday, but I do not like it because it makes your skin feel DRY, not moisturized. Granted it last a long time,but if that is what firming means I'd rather have moisture. I haven't even used my TSV, what a costly mistake!
Bottom of the jar and no results!!!
I am 48 years old with few fine lines but good glowing skin. My problem is firmness. When I smile that's when I show signs of aging. I bought this item close to 8 weeks ago mainly for what it claims it does -firmness-. I believe i gave Dr. Perricone a fair chance to wait and not to expect overnight results. I am almost at the bottom of the jar and I have not experienced any firmness to my skin. Yes, it is a good moisturizer but for the price it is not worth the expense. There are other good moisturizers at the market and not so expensive. Please save your money if firmness is your issue. I decided to get fillers on the parts of my face where I lack firmness and yes the results are overnight and visible.
Transformation takes time!
I received this product as part of the TSV. At first, my skin became dry but also very soft. I'm so glad that I kept using it anyways. Now, I no longer have dryness and the longer I use this product, the better my skin becomes. You really have to give treatment products a good month or so to see results. So many people expect overnight results with products and that's just not going to happen! I guess because of the expense, they're anxious to send it back for a refund before the products have had time to work. I'm so glad that I kept using mine and that I locked in on autoship! What a great value. Everyday, my skin feels like I've just had a facial.
CAN'T UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE HYPE
I tried this moisturizer for at least 2 weeks. I honestly thought that, due to the HYPE, as well as the expensive (outrageous $$$) price, it was going to be money well spent. Wrong. This moisturizer is no better than Olay Regenerist. In fact, one night I put Perricone on the one side of my face, and Olay on the other (just for a test). The Olay side was much softer. I also noticed no significant difference with using Perricone (it did nothing to control the flaking and peeling on my nose). I'm not impressed with any of his products (I've tried a couple already and don't plan on wasting my time trying any more, not to mention the expense of sending them back). They're all grossly overpriced, and don't deliver the expected results (and they tended to dry out my skin a bit). I'll save my money and spend it on much cheaper (and better) moisturizers. Back it went.
