        A:

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        We appreciate your feedback.

        Please understand that after much negative feedback we received from our customers about the plastic packaging, there was a decision to revert back to our "classic glass" packaging to improve user experience. These changes were made simply to try and accommodate our customers' packaging requests.

    • Q:

      I've been keeping this product in my shower which I didn't realize till now that I wasn't supposed to. The product now has a really weird smell. Does this mean it has gone bad? Is it still safe to use? I still have about half the bottle left so I would hate to waste it.

        A:

        Great question!

        From what you have described it sounds like your cleanser may be spoiled.

        The cleanser will begin to have a strong foul odor and spoil if it is exposed to moisture.

        We always recommend keeping all Perricone products in a dry moisture free climate and at room temperature.

        I recommend discarding the unused portion and going forward please always store in a dry moisture free atmosphere; such as a medicine cabinet or dresser top.

        Have a nice day!

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        You can't go wrong with either cleanser; both cleansers are phenomenal.

        Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment
        A 3-in-1, no-rinse treatment that deeply cleanses as it gently exfoliates and conditions, leaving skin instantly radiant.

        Nutritive Cleanser thoroughly cleans skin and removes all traces of make-up. It is formulated to reveal a brighter and smoother skin surface and helps to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. It leaves skin looking radiant and perfectly prepared for treatment.

        I hope this is helpful.

    Wonderful Cleanser for all

    This cleanse is great for everday use. It foams beautifully and has a soft baby powder smell to it. Takes off makeup and eye makeup.

    First I loved the product. The smell wasn't horrible, it was really gentle, work great with my clarisonic and my face was improving. It doesn't remove mascara the way is supposed to, even if you use regular mascara not waterproof . After a month the smell changed. It smells like urine. The cleanser is not in a hot place to change its chemical composition. Oh and one more thing, the pump is awful. It has problems since the second week I bought it. Not a great product after all :/

    Good face wash but smells after a few months

      Comments about Perricone MD Nutritive Cleanser:

      I bought this product because I love Perricone MD products. I actually really liked this cleanser, at first. I read a few reviews about the smell being really bad but when I started using it, it smelled fine...BUT after about 2 months, it started smelling foul. It's a good cleanser, I've had no bad reactions to it. The only problem is the smell. It's so bad, that I hold my breath now when I use it. Unfortunately, I will not be re-purchasing this product. I am going to try the Citrus Wash.

        Comments about Perricone MD Nutritive Cleanser:

        Use to cleanse daily---including on hands. It softens and moisturizes lightly. It seems to remove dry skin scales. My skin feels smooth after using. It also seems a bit more 'tight'; not as saggy. I've tried other cleansers that are supposed to improve my skin, but none I like as much as this one. It is pricier than others, and that's why I keep trying others. But so far, this is the one.

          This cleanser smelled great at first, but after a few months it started to smell like a "burnt perm". Customer service said that can happen but it does not affect the overall effectiveness of the product. However, I just threw a half a bottle away because the smell was so bad, I just couldn't use it. Great cleanser if you are going to use the whole bottle quickly.
