Perricone MD Formula 15 Serum Review

September 24, 2012

Perricone MD is currently celebrating its 15th year making patented skincare products. Previously, I’ve reviewed the Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 15, which I am still enjoying (I bought the auto-renew program). I’ve also been given the chance to try the new Perricone MD Formula 15 ($125/2 oz.).

Perricone MD Formula 15 is a combination cocktail of a number of ingredients developed by Dr. Perricone to provide a synergistic effect. First off, let me say that I saw a noticeable difference in my skin about an hour after I first applied it. Although my testing is in the early stages (only a few days), I’m really impressed. The primary effective ingredients are:

Alpha Lipoic Acid: An antioxidant which improves the skin’s resilience, tone, an texture, while improving radiance and clarity.

DMAE (dimethylaminoethenol): increases the firmness of skin, allowing sagging skin to look more tightened and toned. It addresses the loss of firmness and lessens the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Phos E: A proprietary blends of phospholipids that provides nutrition and antioxidants to the skin to increase radiance and protect and hydrate skin. This helps stressed, dry, or dehydrated skin.

Tocotrienols: Superior forms of Vitamin E to nourish and repair damaged skin and to give a rosy glow. These improve the skin’s overall health.

I’ve been curious about trying Perricone MD’s DMAE as a topical ever since I watched this 3-minute video:

After trying Formula 15 for just a short time, I found my skin was tighter, more toned, more even textured and more radiant. It seemed to shave off several years, giving me a healthy looking, natural glow. At the same time, the product absorbed beautifully into my skin without leaving any heavy residue–there is a light texture and a very pleasant, citrus-like scent.

I was surprised to see such a visible difference in my skin, particularly because I already use high-quality skin care. There is certainly something very effective in Formula 15 that my skin had been missing. Because these formulas are patented, it is quite unlikely that I will find them anywhere else.

If you find your skin needs a little freshening tighten and glow, Perricone MD is definitely worth trying. It’s due to ship beginning in October.

Application tip: Smooth evenly on cleansed skin in the morning, follow with a moisturizer.

 Perricone MD sent Formula 15 to Cafe Makeup without charge for consideration for review.
