Perricone MD has always been a brand that intrigues me. I’ve tried a couple of their products now and I love their ‘skincare meets science’ ethos. If you haven’t herd of them, Perricone MD products are pretty much on the borderline of where skincare meets medicine – known as cosmecuticals.
‘Dr. Perricone introduced his patented formulations and immediately set a new industry standard for product efficacy with results that often rival more invasive and potentially risky dermatological procedures. This new category, known as cosmeceuticals, has raised the bar of people’s expectations for topical skincare.’
The Perricone MD mission is to offer an intelligent and synergistic approach to more youthful skin and optimal health. Offering products that are formulated with the most potent anti-aging skincare and supplements at the forefront of skin science, researched and prescribed by Dr. Nicholas Perricone.
One of their latest products – Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint SPF30 promises to protect skin with corrective nutrients while giving a luminous, tinted glow. This is a deeply-hydrating, antioxidant rich moisturiser, which is also oil free and fast-absorbing. This lightweight cream is formulated with unique pigment capsules that slowly release upon application to steadily reveal a warm tint that adjusts to your individual skin tone. Featuring key sciences that include Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester, and other powerful ingredients, this product helps defer the signs of aging by boosting collagen and elastin production while brightening, renewing and smoothing skin’s texture. You’re advised to use alone for a naturally translucent finish, or layer under foundation to further customize your shade.
You can see I’ve applied the cream quite thickly on the back of my hand, so you can see the mottled colour, then when rubbed in (FYI I haven’t rubbed in fully here) you get a lovely light tan shade that’s easily buildable. I haven’t blended it into the back of my hand, just so you can get a good idea of the intensity of colour you can achieve. Once rubbed in though, this cream really does give a beautiful light hint of tan to the skin – being super pale I’m always a bit wary of tanning, but this shade is really natural and you can re-apply the product to increase the intensity if you wish. It has a lovely ‘no makeup’ super lightweight feel on the skin, and really helps to even out your complexion. I’ll definitely be getting a lot of use out of this product over the summer!
If you’re into tinted moisturisers and looking for a natural finish, I’d definitely recommend you try this product out.
Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizing Tint is £57 for 59ml, and available now from Perricone MD
