Key Sciences

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA): Nature's Most Powerful Antioxidant

A fatty acid found in every cell in the human body, ALA reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores over time. Fat and water-soluble, ALA is highly absorbable and works alongside the body's own antioxidant system.

DMAE: Instant Firming

Naturally produced by the human brain, DMAE helps visibly lift sagging skin over time. Easily and quickly absorbed, it visibly plumps skin to help support skin's surface and protect against drying environmental aggressors.

      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.

      Have a nice day!

  • 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.

      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!

    I'm over 55 and am trying to determine which cleanser would be best for me which cleaner would benefit me best. Plasma or Nurtitive? Although my husband says I look younger than someone my age, I have dropping upper eye lids, crows feet and some fine lines. I have deeper lined above my eye brows and in my forehead.

      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 :/

          Comments about Nutritive Cleanser:

          My face feels squeaky clean without being dry. I do love the way it makes my face feel. When I first bought it it had a wonderful clean and fresh scent. After using it for a couple of weeks there is something in the composition of the cleanser that chemically changes and causes quite a nasty smell. I'm down to the bottom third of my bottle now and as long as I hold my nose when I wash my face I can stand it. when I first read reviews to purchase this product I did read that several people commented on how bad it smelled. Once I receive that I couldn't understand why they would say that because it had such a wonderful, light and clean sent. But, as mentioned, after a few weeks to smell completely changes. My face feels good but I'm not sure I would buy the product again.

                I am 57 and still have oily skin and clogged pores. This cleanser didn't make my clogged pores worse, but it didn't help it since it dryed my skin out (even burned a little). The pump that comes with this product is unpredictable, I found it unuseable. I really like other Perricone products and was hoping the cleanser would be a great addition! While this product may work for some, I'm debating the return of it.

                    I decided to try this program even though I had read a couple reviews that were against the smell of this product. I don't know what those people are talking about because I thought the fragrance was clean and fresh. In fact, that's one of the best things about it, I think. Very lightweight and great product. I love the way it makes my skin feel after I wash my face. It removes my make up and pollution from the day. My face is never dry or sticky. One of your best products. I've been recommending it to everyone I know.
