Perricone MD Giveaway $150 + Wrinkle Cream Comparison

Sunday, January 16, 2011
Hey everyone!

I just wanted to do a quick review of a Perricone MD product that was sent to me in December! I've had a while to test out the 'Advanced Face Firming Activator', and I'm very fond of it! For my combination-oily skin this has done a wonderful job. I chose this product in part to decrease the size of my enlarged pores, and after applying my concealer a large fraction of them are hidden. They work great in conjunction, and I've become a big fan. Since this cream is mostly targeted to an older age group to combat wrinkles, I cannot tell you much on how well it works in that sense. However, there are many customer reviews here.

While I was perusing Women's Health Magazine, I came across a long piece on skin tips. Here are a few that I found most interesting:

Don't wash money down the drain. "There's no need to buy an expensive cleanser loaded with fancy ingredients," says photobiologist Daniel B. Yarosh, Ph.D., author of The New Science of Perfect Skin. "They're on your skin for less than a minute, so they don't have time to really do anything." Adding injury to insult: Some pricey ingredients can actually cause irritation (that would be you, peppermint and eucalyptus). Start with inexpensive face washes (try Biore Revitalize 4-in-1 Foaming Cleanser, $7 for 6.7 oz, and see-through glycerin soaps like Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar ($3, Both remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells without stripping away your skin's natural (and necessary) oils.
Use an anti-ager--now! Don't wait for the first crow's feet to appear before you reach for that little tube. "Even women in their twenties should be using a topical retinoid--unless they're pregnant or nursing," says Francesca Fusco, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. Here's why: Retinoids, which contain vitamin A, are one of the most potent agents for preventing and reversing sun damage and signs of aging. And, says Hirsch, "they're the ultimate multitasker. They speed skin renewal by shedding dull, pore-clogging cells and increase collagen production to prevent wrinkles." Ask your doctor about a retinoid prescription or try an OTC, such as Roc Retinol Actif Pur Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizing Treatment--Night ($22 for 1 oz, *Check out a wrinkle cream comparison article at the Perricone MD blog.
Don't strip for just anyone. We're not knocking your trusted doc, but dermatologists really are the best at knowing which growths are worrisome and which are harmless.A survey in the Journal of General Internal Medicine found that derms had significantly higher accuracy in identifying abnormal skin growths than primary-care physicians.In fact, more than 90 percent of dermatologic surgeons have seen one or more patients in the past year with a skin cancer that had been overlooked or misdiagnosed by a non-dermatologist.Melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, is the third most common cancer in women ages 20 to 39, so book your skin screening now.
Get all in a lather. Anytime you sweat, your body produces more sebum (an oily pore-clogging secretion), says dermatologist Audrey Kunin, M.D., founder of if you're tempted to skip the shower after a lunchtime workout (and we're not judging here), don't! Since bacteria love to feast on sweat and oil, you're setting yourself up for breakouts.After any sweat-inducing activity, rinse off under cool water with a shower wash containing oil-clearing glycolic or salicylic acid. We like Phisoderm Anti-Blemish Body Wash ($6 for 12 oz,
Don't feel the burn. Investing in special creams for each body part seems to make as much sense as Scarlett Johansson's singing career. Do you really need a separate eye cream? Actually, yes."The skin around your eyes is delicate and needs to be treated gently," says Francesca Fusco, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.Eye creams contain lower levels of potentially irritating ingredients, such as retinol, AHAs, and glycolic acid, than products designed for the face. *Check out the best eye wrinkle cream at Perricone MD.

So, with all this information in mind, I want you to go over to Perricone MD and choose your favourite product valued at $150 or less, and tell me why you think it's best for you. Yes, this is a give-away (note the title)! Here are the restrictions:

  3. My favorite product would have to be the Skin Clear Hydrator. I have combination skin that is acne prone. My t-zone area is very oily, but my cheeks and chin are very dry. I have yet to find the perfect moisturizer that will address my combination skin. But this product seems perfect for me because on the website the description says "It's also specially formulated for oily skin with Allatoin, which helps to reduce surface debris while relieving dryness and increasing skin's natural moisture". This describes my the moisturizer of my dreams! I would absolutely love to win this giveaway!

  4. Looks like a great product!

  5. Skin Clear Hydrator & Skin Clear Cleanser because I've oily skin but at the same time it's dry. :) I've some breakout too. :) Like the description say I think (maybe) its goona work for me. :) Oh & Cold Plasma Deluxe Sample Tube cause I've big pores actually anyways :).


  6. I'd like to try Advanced Eye Area Therapy for treating the dry skin around my eyes, and to improve the look of the lines that are beginning to be noticeable in that area.

  7. I would like to try their Serum Prep.
    - Provides ultimate contouring benefits to skin beginning to lose elasticity
    - Delivers lifted, tightened and toned appearance to the skin
    - Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
    - Repairs damaged skin
    - Hydrates and helps treat dry, more fragile skin
    I am in my 50ès and need help in all of these areas.

  13. Cold Plasma sounds like it would fix all of my skin problems!

  14. The Advanced Face Firming Activator sounds like it has everything I need!
    I was looking for something for redness because the winters are so cold that my skin gets all angry and red and I wanted something for puffiness because my eyes look like a panda's from studying too much! Also there's pore minimization! And even though I don't necessarily need the wrinkle treatment yet, they say that you should start young!
    It truly sounds like a magic cream.

  20. Oh I never, ever, ever win anything in give-aways! I must admit that I am pretty picky in entering too so that may have lowered my chances by well, a lot!

    So, with my fingers crossed, I really want to win the Skin Clear Hydrator and Cleanser. I may have mentioned in a previous comment that I have been breaking out.

  21. The use of anti wrinkle cream is to get rid of wrinkles and to find the best wrinkle cream, look for the ingredients of the product and if a product does not disclose their ingredients then the other way to find the best wrinkle cream is by reading consumer wrinkle cream reviews.


Thanks for stopping by. À plus mes belles!
