Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 15
Really Did Nothing For Me
I received this with the TSV back around the beginning of the year so I have been using it for many months and if anything, it has made my skin dry and a lot of my problems that had diminished when I was using Miracle Worker products by Philosophy have reappeared....large pores, blotchiness, lines on cheek area. I gave this two stars only because the TSV came with the Face Finishing Moisturizer which I do like, but for the price I don't think I can continue with it. I have tried other Perricone products and they are way overpriced in my opinion. I agree with another reviewer that it always seems there is another new and great product to add to your regimine with Dr. Perricone. It's too confusing!!!! Make it simple please.
I have gone back to the Miracle Worker products by Philosophy and my skin already looks better! I also use Dr. Denese's HydroShield products at night. I am 55 and my skin is glowing again!
Please, please, please never not have this available for purchase. That happens so often and this is one I can not live without now that I've been using it for quite some time now. I had hormonal acne which left me with embarrasing scars along my jawline. Barely visible now even without makeup and I'm thanking Dr. Perricone for that. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ps No other product I've tried worked like this one--none of them. Perfect gift for "anyone" that has this type of skin issue (not an option to select for "Who would this be a perfect gift for?"
This is the second time I am trying Dr. P's products......I am 62 years young and I want a simple regimen for looking the best that I can without sacrificing my limited budget!
I also found it to be very thick and actually felt that it was too weighty for mature skin. The other products in the line seem to be okay but I have not seen any improvement after 1 month; in fact, I think that it has reverted back to some of the problems I once had such as, little brakouts on my chin and cheeks.
I don't expect instant results BUT I would like to know what I need to do for my mature skin and I want it simple......it is way too confusing to try and figure out what is right for me. I think our grandmothers had it down......just keep your skin clean!
I feel beautiful again!
I'm 46 and I don't go for Perricone products too often because of the price. Thankfully, I tried this and it is wonderful. I waited one month to get results and it has cleared my skin, evened out my skin tone and now... I feel pretty again even without makeup! Try it but wait a month for it to work.
no results yet
I have used this for 2 weeks with no results at all. In fact, I actually think my skin is looking a little worse - sort of rough and blotchy. I plan to go ahead and try it for a couple more weeks, due to all the good reviews. Maybe something will happen.
Great 4 younger woman
Naturally most of all the 5 stars come from younger women and no wonder they are doing a good job as most anything at their age would. I do have many many items from Dr. P, but do not like that every-time his show is on there is a NEW BETTER product. What are we suppose to do with all the other ones that say this is the BEST????? Add it all up and you are spending a huge amount of money before even finishing the first BEST.
It is in my opinion that there are much too many items to use and it would take a very long time to use if used as directed and they all say apply on clean skin so how can a person keep putting one after another on over each one and what happens to the older ones that were purchased where and what do you do with them as they were costly also. I think that there are products out there that would do the same thing and I do not mean drug store products but other companies that would do the same. He just has much too many things for a person to do.
Seems to make a change
Not sure if it's a combination of using it with other products or the actual ester itself, but there seems to be some improvement. I am a fan of Dr. P's moisturizers and cleansers but I truly believe that we don't need every single product he produces. I think finding your own dermatologist who can analyze your skin issues is the best way to go--then you can focus on your specific problems. And following a healthy diet (which Dr. P highly recommends) is another way to see improvements. If your skin really needs Vitamin C, then I would recommend it to a friend.
Please Make These Products More Affordable
Got this in a recent TSV kit. While I am seeing some results I am not sure I will be able to continue to afford this. I am already using 5-6 other Perricone products which cost between $100-$200 each. The problem is I cannot continue to use all these products on a regular basis and spend $700+ every 3 to 4 months (on skincare alone). One line helps with smoothness and brightness, another line helps with deep wrinkles and another helps with firmness. I need something that is going to do all 3, or just a few products that can do all of this, or make it affordable to use. While I am not entertaining the idea of surgery I might as well for what I am spending. I do like the products, I just think they are costly.
Thick Texture, Can Be Drying
I have tried the vitamin C ester for about a month. This product didn't give me the results I was hoping to see. It was difficult for me to keep up due to the cream drying my skin. To help smooth it better on my face, I would mix it with a favorite serum. It does go bad if you do not use it fast enough. I am not sure it would last past a few months. I would recommend you use more product than you think. I love other Perricone products, but this one is not for me.
Don't Like It At All
I first purchased this product when was on advanced order, can't remember how many months ago that was, still have a couple of tubes in the fridge. I am 49 and have tried them all from QVC and don't find this product to do what it says it will. And anyone in the science area knows that consumer trials are not clinical trials, which are actually scientific. If you do a trial on a consumer that doesn't take good care of their skin... then they should have dramatic results. Now, I do like Perricone products and have a couple on auto-delivery, which I have found actually give me results. Not everything works for everyone.
It really works!
I've tried so many products to firm and brighten my skin but this one really works! The initial cost is a little dramatic but is lasts a while and, for me, is fairly economical. A little bit goes a very long way.
LOVE, LOVE & LOVE
This is the best skin brightener for my face. This is my second order and I will continue to use this product. Once you cleanse the skin and apply this, my face feels so good. I use a moisturizer after applying this and I have noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin. Thanks for making this product!
