        Dr. Perricone's products have not been tested on women who are pregnant or nursing. Although Dr. Perricone does not foresee any problems with this, it is important that you know that they have not been tested. If you have any concerns about product usage, we recommend that you discuss this with your physician. We do list our ingredients on our product packaging and on our website, so we recommend checking these ingredients with your personal physician.

        I hope this is helpful.

        A:

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        We do not have an acne line; however, based on your skin concerns I recommend the Enlarged Pores Prescription kit, which is available on our website: www.perriconemd.com

        This kit consists of the following products:

        Citrus Facial Wash - This non-drying facial wash removes impurities, debris and makeup and helps prevent the appearance of redness and blotchiness, sometimes associated with the use of harsh cleansers. Suitable for all skin types, though especially recommended for combination skin.

        Intensive Pore Minimizer - Intensive Pore Minimizer treats the causes of pores by performing three modes of action. One, gently exfoliating the skin of build-up, two, firming the appearance of sagging pore walls and three, controlling the oil production that leads to shine and the appearance of blemishes.

        Intensive Pore Treatment - Designed with a patented, state-of-the-art science, Intensive Pore Treatment takes a unique approach by tackling the causes of pores, rather than masking the symptoms and further aggravating the problem. Non-clogging or filling, oil free and silicone free, this treatment is proven effective and delivers superior results.

        I hope this is helpful.

        The Citrus Facial Wash is a foamy gel cleanser; very deep cleansing and excellent with removing makeup; it's also very good for enlarged pores.

      Do you recommend using this cleanser with the Clarisonic. They have different brush heads. I typically use the deep pore brush head. I am concerned that it could be too harsh on my skin, is that possible? I am not experiencing any problems, but neither do I want to contribute to any new ones. Thank you!

        The Citrus Facial wash is non-drying , refreshing cleanser. It doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils, so you should be fine to use with your Clarisonic!

    • Q:

      I am confused about which cleanser to use. I am 56 with combination/oily skin. I have had acne and very problematic skin from my early teens until only a couple of years ago and it started to settle down. I do still have oily skin and very large pores from problem skin years. When I took the skin quiz it said I should use the Nutritive Cleanser. When I look at pore minimizing it shows that I should use the Citrus Facial Wash. I really want pore minimizing and oil reduction (especially in the Summer months). When the weather cools down i won't have the major oil problem I do now. I really want to find a product/s that makes a difference and makes me not hate my skin.

    Finally something that REALLY WORKS!!

    This cleanser really does clean your skin. That should be a given for any cleanser, but it's not. The last 4 cleansers I have tried (all from expensive brands)have left makeup on my skin after cleansing (I'm talking cleansing for 2-4min using a Clairsonic AFTER using a makeup remover!), and I don't wear very much makeup. So to find a cleanser that does what it's supposed to do is exciting. Besides actually doing it's job and cleaning my skin, it hasn't dried out my skin even though it seems to thoroughly remove oil. My skin looks more toned after using it.

    I bought this cleanser as part of the Pore Prescription Set, along with Cold Plasma and the Advanced Evening Repair. I started using all of the products at the same time. I use the entire Pore Prescription Set in the AM, applying Cold Plasma after the toner and before the pore treatment. In PM I use this cleanser, the toner, Cold Plasma, then Advanced Evening Repair. I don't know which of these products is doing the heavy lifting, or if they all just work brilliantly together, but after 3 weeks of following this regimen, my skin has NEVER looked better!

    From the time I turned 19 until today (I'm 35) I have had uneven, splotchy skin. I have struggled with cyctic hormonal breakouts, stress breakouts, enlarged pores, and blackheads on my nose and cheeks. Not only do I always have at least two huge pimples to cover up at any given time, usually more, but now I'm getting wrinkles on my forhead and around my nose. My skin can go from oily in the summer to extrememly dry in the winter. And the last couple of months it got even worse. Not only did I have the usual cyctic acne, but my forehead and both jaws become covered with tiny red pimples. And absolutely nothing I tried would make them disapear. Three weeks ago when I started this regimen, my skin had never looked worse. I have spent thousands of dollars over the years ( from drugstore brands like Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Proactive, and Roc to more expensive brands, B. Kamins, Erno Lazlo, Dr. Hauschka, Murad, DDF, Skinscuenticals, La Roche Posey, Avene, Somme, Dermalogica, Skin Medica, Bliss, Kiehls, and Dr. Brandt. As well as prescription Glycolic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, and retinol. I've also tried antibiotics and birth control pills)trying to find something that will give me the clear, even toned skin of my dreams.

    I was a little nervous that this system wasn't going to work because I didn't start seeing results right away (within a week-I know, I'm an inpatient person) and all of these products were ridiculously expensive. In fact, for the first couple of weeks my skin became even more oily. By week two though, all of my cyctic pimples deep down in my skin were gone. I could feel new ones come up under the skin, but they would shrink and disappear within a couple of days and never broke the surface or became visible enough to need to cover with makeup. Also in week two, the breakout of tiny red pimples all over my forehead and jaw that had been there for two months started to disapear. It's week three and I am so happy to say I do not have ONE pimple anywear on my face, the pores on my nose and cheeks are smaller and completely clear of blackheads, the fine lines on my forhead are less visible, and my skin is more even toned than it has ever been been. I am so excited. I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror!

    I don't know if these products or this specific regimen will work for everyone, and I know they are really expensive, but this has worked for me when nothing else has. I will spend less on clothes, bags, eating out, travel...anything, to be able to afford to keep using these products. I have wished for nice skin for 16 years and now I have it. That's worth it to me.

    Doesn't remove eye make up very well

    I need to use 3 pumps, and still remove residual eye make up with another cleanser. Nutritive cleaner is the best, providing excellent skin cleansing!

        I moved to Williston, ND for the oilfield. I've now been here for 5 years where the weather is a lot dryer and very harsh winter conditions. My skin started to dry out,change texture, bigger pores, etc... I found this about 2 years ago and its completly changed the way I look for the better. I cant give this product a better review. My skin is back to being very moisturized, pores are smaller, and my skin looks great. I've tried various other products from here that also works great. It's a little on the more expensive side but it's worth it for the results. I'll keep coming back for more everytime! Thanks Dr. Perricone :)

I use it twice a day, smaller amount in the morning because I'm removing light debri before applying my makeup. I am caucasean - so I tend to have more fine lines and dryness- but never feel dry after this using product!
