        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.

      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.

        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 :/

        This is a great cleanser. I like the way it feels and how my skin feels so happy after using. The product is a real winner but what isn't a winner is the pump that comes with the product because it's not easy to make it work. I wish you would offer another kind of pump. Most times I just have to take your pump off and pour the product from the bottle. This is annoying and wasteful. My one and only (but BIG) complaint.

                    MCI or Methylchloroisothiazolinone & Methylisothiazolinone are very irritating and controversial preservatives that Dr. Perricone should eliminate from this product. They can cause extreme allergic reactions: irritation, drying, cracking and bleeding of skin. I like many of the Perricone products and hope that this is the only one that contains these preservatives.

                    I feel like I must be using a different product from the other reviewers here. I had a great skincare routine going with the Dr. Perricone citrus facial wash. My skin was moisturized and baby smooth thanks to that and my other products. I switched to this a week ago and my skin has completely changed for the worse. The texture looks and feels uneven. I keep noticing little dry patches, with an especially bad one on my chin. Even starting to see some fine lines since it's so dry. To top it off, the smell is overpowering like baby powder. I couldn't recommend this less. It does the opposite of the features it claims.

                      Comments about Nutritive Cleanser:

                      I used it as a skeptic as I am 60& thought I'd seen everything. I am an addict and use it 2-3 x a day as we have high humidity and I still can have breakouts. Not anymore and I have added the pore minimized system The cost is minimal when it is all factored out. The products last !
