Skin Care Hero: Perricone MD Cold Plasma Review

August 31, 2013

Perricone MD Cold Plasma8

When I was packing for a few weeks in Paris, I was panicked over which skin care to bring. Travel can be hard on my skin–the long, dehydrating plane trip, time in the sun, new foods, and unpredictability.  I delayed packing my skincare products until the very last minute, absolutely unable to decide what to bring. I tweeted for help, and was answered with some very good, practical advice from one of my favorite skincare experts, at The Black Panties. She suggested one cleanser, two toners, two serums, and two moisturizers (and, of course, sunscreen).  To anyone but a beauty lover, the is probably enough skin care for a year. For me, this seems a sensible amount.

One of the items I chose was Perricone MD Cold Plasma ($155/ 1 oz.).  I applied this every night for the full three weeks, and was really impressed. My pores looked better, my skin seemed plumper, more moisturized, and it looked younger and more refreshed. My skin glowed every morning after I removed it.

When I was very  young and my skin was great, I had no need of anything like Perricone MD Cold Plasma. If your skin is perfect, you won’t need it either. But if you do wish your skin had more life, more firmness, and more glow, it is definitely worth a good look.

    Thanks to you, Amy, I’ve ordered my first Perricone MD product: Firming Facial Toner, the product you review here sounds exactly what I need, mostly in the “firming department”.

    I once tried some Perricone skincare in a shop on the back of my hand. The fishy smell was so vile and strong (it lasted through three hand-washes, and being throughly swabbed with antibacterial hand gel) that it ruined the rest of my shopping trip. The thought of putting it on my face was quite nauseating. So I have to ask the question I ask about all Perricone skincare: what did it smell like?

      This has the fishy scent-this is not the product for you!

    I’m not sure I understand the science behind cold plasma. The ingredient list looks fairly standard. So what is new or different here? I love adding new tested ingredients to my routine, but not seeing it here yet.

      The ingredients are not unique but I find them very effective because of the delivery. The Perricone line gets the patents because they are modifed to be effective with the skin.

      To take an wxtreme example, I don’t think placing any vitamin or ingredient on my akin is going to be absorbed and work. Just my experience.

    This sounds like what I need after a day in the sun. Is this a cream? If so, the consistency looks like gel to me. How do you layer this product in relation to other skin care that you use? Thanks for the coverage, Amy!

    • Amy September 1, 2013 at 8:17 am

      The Perricone line is fully layerable with other products in hos line. I added this first, a layer of the Vitamin C ester and a moisturizer if needed. I tried to avoid retinoids durinf this time period because I was in the sun so much and retinoids make my skin sun sensitive.

      It feels like a gel.

    Thanks to you, Amy, I’ve ordered first product from Perricone MD, the anti-aging toner, and this product also sounds really good!
