product review - perricone

12/03/2013


perricone MD nutritive cleanser - £34 for 177ml*

when i was younger i used to wonder what was the point of a skincare routine, all i thought i needed was a good moisturiser and a spot stick for the occasional breakout. but now i finally understand the importance of them and follow a strict regime every morning and night with military precision. cleansers are the one skincare product i quite simply cannot live without, so much so that i probably own approximately nine just so i can use different types; whether that is a balm, lotion or a gentle foaming cleanser, it completely depends on the condition of my skin at the time.

let me just say that i waited until i used up the entire bottle of this product before reviewing so my review is 100% the wholehearted truth. each night before i settled down for bed i would use this cleanser with an eco tools sponge to remove my make up. what i loved about was how after just using the amount the size of a 10p piece it took my entire make up off and my skin felt so clean and fresh and it could finally breathe again. perricone seems to have their skincare products perfected as this cleanser paired with my alpha-h liquid gold (review coming soon), has improved the general appearance of my skin massively. it's a rare occasion for me as my skin is usually pretty bad but i can't even remember the last time i had a major blemish now, even the little ones i have grown accustomed too haven't appeared in two weeks now. however like my jurlique serum (see review here) it's definitely one of the best skincare products i own but i can't justify the price! it's such a shame as i'd have loved to have repurchased this and maybe the intensive pore minimiser too from lookfantastic.

    1. It really is lovely, I know mine lasted about three weeks and for my size that's £10 but I have 500ml bottles I paid £5 for that do the job perfect too! It's a shame it wasn't cheaper unless I'd be buying it in bulk x

    2. Hi
      A great review
      I have been wanting to try this range especially the cleanser but it is very pricey I cannot justify spending a few hundred pounds on a moisturiser as I find many other premium brands at lower prices that do the job great

    1. No matter what I'm doing whether getting in at 3am from a night out then routine has got to happen! I don't want my skin to suffer the consequences if I forget x

  4. I used to think like that about skincare when I was younger too, just got into cleansing etc quite recently. This looks fab, wish it wasn't so expensive :( I've just bought the bioderma crealine H2O, have you tried that before?

    1. No I actually haven't, I've heard good reviews though. I can't decide whether to invest as it just looks like a glorified water product! x

  5. I used to have the same skincare philosophy as you when I was younger hah, but since discovering beauty blogs that has taken a dramatic turn. I've never tried anything from Perricone, so this seems like a great product to start with!

  9. this sounds really good! i'm a bit obsessive about cleansers too haha. the price tag does put me off a bit though, i find it hard to blow £18 on my ren cleanser but i guess good skincare is always worth the money. i'd love to try some of the other perricone products too, the no foundation foundation & no concealer concealer sound really cool xx
