Skin Care Review: Perricone Evening Facial Emollient

by Nicole, Morgantown, WV USA


improved skin tone, skin holds moisture better, supposed to lift and firm

watch out for skin sensitivity!

I purchased this product after receiving a free sample with another Sephora purchase; I loved the sample so much that I had to buy the full-size product. I was a big skin-cream skeptic, and was particularly suspicious of high-end creams with miracle claims. I must say, though, that this is the first cream I've ever tried that has actually made a visible difference in my skin. I don't really need it for its lifting/firming qualities (I'm in my early 30s and not yet really showing signs of age), but it has really evened out my skin tone. It doesn't clog my pores at night and the next morning my face feels softer when I wash it and holds on to water from my toner and moisturizer much better and much longer. However -- after 3 months of continuous use I find I can no longer use it or any other Perricone product around the eye area (including the creams and serums especially for the eye area). I have broken capillaries and raised bumps on the skin around the eyes (and my undereye area is not particularly sensitive). It is still great for the rest of the face.

Made a real difference in my skin. Careful around eye area, though.
