    What It Is

    This unique two-step product offers a combination of skin brightening, discoloration reducing, and lifting and tightening benefits that is rarely available in a single product. Intensive Base (Step 1) contains unprecedented levels of Thio Antioxidant, the body’s master detoxification and repair agent. Brightening Activator (Step 2) contains high levels of our proprietary Vitamin Complex, a powerful antioxidant, which works synergistically with Intensive Base to further fight discoloration.

    • Minimizes the appearance of skin discoloration for a more evened skin tone
    • Visibly renews skin unveiling dramatic, younger-looking skin
    What To Expect

      Dr. Perricone hit a home run with this product !!! Having battled hyperpigmentation most of my adult life I can truly say it's worth the price. Have had many professional treatments to help with this issue , but after a week I really see a big difference ! My co-worker was gone on a two week vacation and when he came back asked what I had done different ! I looked younger lol ! Big compliment as we have worked together 30 years !!!

        I follow the directions after reading the enclosed literature carefully. Step 1 dries quickly and does have a noticeable odor. This dissipates after applying Step 2. I see some improvement after 1 week of use. Every other application I will use on some spots (hyperpigmentation) overnight. My skin does well with Dr. Perricone's products.
