Perricone MD Neuropeptide Facial Cream 2.5 oz.
This is a CREAM???
I purchased this 2-3 months ago. I have a question. The contents of this tube are not a cream. The consistency is not even as creamy as a hand lotion. More on the watery side. When I shake the tube, is 'sloshes' like water. Is it supposed to be this way? I am still using this and can't really tell much change in my skin.... but it's not hurting it either. Will someone please tell me if the product is supposed to be this liquid?? Also, I have never noticed a smell with this product, so I can't identify with those who say it smells bad.
It depends on how my skin is feeling that I see some of the cream to perform
Pricey, but effective
I find this way too emollient for daytime use, but my dry skin loves this as a night cream. Whenever I use it, my skin seems brighter, firmer and more supple the next day, especially in the neck area. However, there are some minuses: it always seems to seep into my eyes and sting them something fierce--so I avoid putting it on my lids or inner corners. Also, although the smell does dissipate after a few minutes, it really is off-putting, and the price is rather steep.
Can't Handle The SMELL!!!
Wow! I'd give this zero stars if I could. I got this in a set of trial sizes that I'd ordered two of. When I opened the first one it smelled so bad that I thought I'd gotten a bad one but my 2nd one smelled the same. Dead fish! Yuk! My husband gagged when I asked him to smell it. I tried putting it on my arm to see if the smell would linger... oh yeah! It does! I just can't put this on my face. I'd rather have wrinkles. I'd always wanted try Perricone products but now I doubt I ever will. Too bad.
love this product
I purchased this product when it was a TSV along with the moisturizer. I was using Perricone Formula 15 and the moisturizer prior to that along with another anti aging product from another brand. I actually ran out of the other brand and noticed that my skin showed an immediate improvement while using only the Perricone products. It was good before but I got an even better result only using Perricone. So I introduced this cream to my daily routine and my skin looks fantastic. Had deep creases from the corner of my lips to my chin and they are almost gone. Overall color and firming has dramatically improved using only Perricone and adding this product. It is pricey but a little goes a long way.
One thing I want to comment on is there is confusion with what is said during the presentations, the directions here and the directions included with the product. I always did put it all over my face but the directions with the product say to put it where you want to create contour. Forget that, put it all over.
Fresh from the Sea!
If you want to smell like dead fish, then this cream is for you. I don't know what in the world is in it, maybe fish oil? I really can't speak to its efficacy because I only used it once before I mailed it back. The smell is supposed to dissipate; however, it definitely does NOT. My husband actually left the bed and went to sleep on the couch. I washed my sheets and pillow cases the next day because they were funky. Its too bad because I really like the Perricone products that do not smell. I couldn't justify this extreme price for a cream that I was going to let sit in my drawer. This one was just gross. YUCK!
Doesn't work immediately
You have to give it more time. And yes there is a smell but goes away and around 30 seconds. It is written in the description and they do mention it on air too! People shouldn't rate this cream on the smell they should rate it how it works on your beautiful face. The smell is one of the ingredients and I wouldn't want them to decrease that powerful ingredient.
Loaded with Paraben
I was so excited to receive this but it was loaded with many kind of parabens. So many companies are taking the parabens out of their products. I wish Dr. Perricone would make all of his products paraben free. However, I absolutely love OVM and I'm looking forward to getting his new product the Hyalo Plasma.
Worse purchase ever made
The smell is so bad. I will not reorder this product. But gave it a chance and can not use it ,when you put it on you can smell it after words .
Scent isn't a problem
I don't know why so many people talk about the scent. It doesn't have much of a scent to me. It seems to help my skin, but I need to give it more time to be sure. I also use the nutritive cleanser and really like it.
How can a product smell so awful??
I believed all the QVC gals who called this face cream "the Gold Standard" in creams, yet they must have been wearing nose plugs as they used it!
This cream has such a terrible odor that was extremely difficult to overcome, so much so that I returned the product . I would like to know what exactly is in this product to make it smell so foul and I am certain that I don't want anything that smells that bad on my face.
If they can put a man on the moon; how is it they can't make this smell better. I have to steel myself to put it on. It does dissipate a little but I get whiffs of it all day and hope others can't smell it. I have to cover it up with other moisturizers that have a nice odor. That's a lot of $$$ going on my face. That said, I have been using it once a day (can't bear 2x) and I see a little improvement in my skin. I will give it another week or so and if I don't look 10 years younger (haha)- I'm afraid we will have to part ways. The moisturizer that came with it as part of TSV is nice.
