Skin Care Review: Dr. Perricone Face Firming Activator

by Marcia Lord, Cambridge, MA usa

Adverse Effects


Allergic reaction

I used this product, along with the Eye Area Therapy for over a week with no actual lift effect. The only result was an allergic reaction presumably to the Alpha Lipoic Acid content in the cream. Buyers beware, the socket area around my eye became inflamed and puffy and took 2 weeks to disappear. I wasn't convinced it was the cream, partly because I'd paid so much for the stuff so I tried again with the same result. It had to be the ALA as only the products in the kit with that in it caused that reaction. I used everything else in the bag throughout a month but didn't see any difference in my skin tone.

Expensive products, more hype than anything else.
