I have been using this product daily for years now because of its great effects on dry skin and large pores. And also for its nutritive effects - my face looks amazing! I also use the facial finishing moisturizer. BUT each and every bottle of nutritive cleanser I've owned turns smelly over time. The fishy smell is so bad that I end up throwing the bottle away. I believe it's the heat from the shower. In order to use it one must keep it in the bathroom otherwise it's inconvenient to use. I used to keep it on the shower shelf and thought that was the problem. I've recently moved the bottle (3rd time) out of the shower but I find that the product still changes smell overtime. I want to continue using it, but I feel that Dr Perricone or his staff really need to test this product out under these conditions and determine if changes can be made without affecting its efficacy OR make some usage/storage recommendations to its customers . It become smelly over time! For now, I will no longer purchase this product!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I am a 26 year old male college student... With pale/pink Irish skin, this product simply diminished overall patchyness and discoloration. Results and complete skin makeover in 5 days time. Simultaniously drying up, yet moisturizing my blemishes with no rough areas to speak of. Use it in morning, then the Hypoallergenic Gentle cleanser at night.
I have never used a Cleanser that made my skin feel this good. And it does exactly what it states. Being 54, and having combination skin, I was worried it might dry my skin. Just the opposite. Leaves my Entire Face Clean and Glowing.
