This is the Part II of my three part review of my Perricone skin care products. Check out the first part, and the contents of my Perricone stash, here.
For this part of the review, I’m going to focus on the three moisturizers I have in my stash of Dr. Perricone products. As you see below, I have three items: More Than Moisture SPF 30, Face Finishing Moisturizer, and the Advanced Face Firming Activator. I have been using all three for the past few weeks. Check out my thoughts on each one below.
More Than Moisture SPF 30
First of all, the scent in this cream is heavenly. Every time I use it, I detect hints of cocoa butter and orange. It smells really rich! Perhaps that contributes to my feeling that it’s also a bit of a heavier cream. It’s not greasy on my skin, but definitely feels like a thicker moisturizer.
I have used this cream every time I’ve gone out for a walk. It does a good job of protecting my skin from the sun. It’s lovely to have a cream that acts like a sunscreen, but doesn’t smell too strong or feel heavy on my skin.
Face Finishing Moisturizer
This cream comes in a jar with a little spatula. The cream is more gelatinous and a bit thicker than the other moisturizers. I guess that’s why the spatula is included.
The moisturizer felt the thickest out of the three that I tried. It also provided the most moisture out of all of them.
This cream has a floral scent. Fortunately, it’s not overpowering. While I’m not usually a fan of floral scents, I quite like this one, probably because it’s not that strong.
Advanced Face Firming Activator
This is the one cream that I had used before. As soon as I opened it, the scent brought me right back to the time when I was first introduced to this cream. It was such a memorable time that I’d like to digress slightly here and tell you about it.
A short side story…
Remember the 2010 Winter Olympics? Well, I was there! For real! I was one of fifty people that my company sponsored to volunteer at the Olympics. I worked with a group of people in the head office. Our job was basically to help people keep motivated, especially those in the head office who didn’t get a chance to be at the events. It may not sound like much, but it was a great job. The easiest way to motivate people was to give out free tickets. We handed out lots and my team also attended lots of events.
Here’s a photo from one of my first days on the job!
Back to the Advanced Firming Face Activator
I was saying…the scent brings me right back to the first time I used it. Similar to the SPF cream, I smell a bit of cocoa and a bit of citrus. It’s a light, refreshing scent. (and to me, smells of the Vancouver Olympics!)
This cream is the lightest of the three. It moisturizes well, without feeling heavy on the skin.
Which One Do I Like Best?
Well, it depends! I really like each of these creams. They all serve a different purpose for my skin.
I like using the SPF when I’m going to be outside. It does a great job as a sunscreen.
I love the Advanced Firming Face Activator for the morning. It’s light and moisturizing.
Finally, I really enjoy using the Face Finishing Moisturizer at night time. It’s thick and moisturizing and is perfect for overnight rejuvenation.
Having said all of that, if push came to shove and I was forced to choose just one, I would go with the Advanced Firming Face Activator. Not only does it remind me of my Olympic adventure, it also does a great job of moisturizing all day long.
