Perricone MD Range

I am a big fan of the Dr Perricone range and when I was kindly sent the The Nutritive Cleanser and a bottle of No Foundation Foundation, I was really eager to try them out. I have had a small tube of No Foundation Foundation in the past and whilst it only had enough inside for one application, I liked it.



The Nutritive Cleanser is a foaming face wash which took its time to grow on me, but I now love it. Some people are not fans of cleansers that foam and that is fine, I am and do like them. This Nutritive Cleanser is kind and gentle enough on your skin that it can be used twice a day. It smells absolutely amazing and reminds me a little bit of Baby Talcum powder by Johnson. It also has a really interesting texture because for me it falls somewhere in the middle of being an oil and a gel, not overly runny but not too thick either.

Having used this cleanser daily for a good few months now, it has become one of my favourites and it is so good it even removes the hardest of hard mascara and eyeliner (Benefit im looking at you) with ease. It contains ingredients that provide anti-aging benefits and help reveal a brighter and smoother skin surface and it is also paraban free. Those ingredients being Alpha Lipoic Acid which is an antioxident helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size and refine skin texture to name but a few of its propertied and DMAE is said to also help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and deliver a lifted, tightened and toned appearance to the skin.




The second product which is Dr Perricone’s No Foundation Foundation is said to be all about letting your skin’s natural beauty shine through but without the flaws. So if like me you feel that your complexion needs a little assistance but you prefers a more natural sort of ‘no makeup’ look than traditional foundations offer then this is definitely a product worth looking at. This is my second time coming across this product, which was until recently only been available in a shade that suited those with much deeper skin tones, so for someone who has almost translucent skin like me, it was a huge no-no. But now with fairer shades available for those like me, it is all the more exciting and that is possibly the shade I need rather than this one which I tone down with my daily moisturiser by mixing them together.

However, once applied, I love how this feels on my skin. I tend to use my fingers too apply it and then use my foundation brush to give my skin the once over, quite a lazy way to apply things but when you are in a rush it works. Once on the skin, it does leave a really lovely glowy, dewy finish, not too shiny and definitely not that 'troweled on' look, just what is a very healthy looking complexion and as someone who has imperfections, such as redness, this does a great job at almost covering them over.



Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation also contains a natural SPF30 which feels surprisingly light on the skin especially as I had expected it to be quite heavy so that was a huge bonus and it also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid which is said to smooth texture, even the skin tone and minimise fine lines and wrinkles and DMAE to firm, lift and contour the skin. So pretty much everything you need in a product is here plus it doesn't smell horrid like some foundations do and it has a pump which makes using it an absolute breeze.

Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation is available now at John Lewis for £47 for 30ml. Whilst I think it is pricey, it is a product that I loved from the start and is one I never want to run out because I just love how it feels on my skin and how much better I feel when wearing it.



Have you ever tried a product from the Perricone range?
