In 2017, Perricone MD announced an update of their best-selling face and eye formulas. Being a major “perriconista,” I was excited to test and write a review on the new Perricone MD Cold Plasma releases. To make this post different from other Perricone MD reviews, I asked my mom to test the same products so we can compare our thoughts.
While I didn’t have a chance to exclusively use these products for a long period of time, I kept coming back to them. I also sent a set of Cold Plasma Plus Face and Cold Plasma Plus Eye products to my mom (who lives in Belarus). She is a major skincare lover too who just turned 55 — so you have opinions from people of different generations.
Daughter’s Take (hey, that’s me!)
While I didn’t have a chance to exclusively use these products for a long period of time, I kept coming back to them in between testing products for other skincare reviews. But even with such a skincare testing protocol, I had an opportunity to fully appreciate the power of Perricone MD products.
My Take on the Face Cream:
I reached to Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus Face on the days when I felt that my skin can use some Vitamin C for brightening and improving my skin radiance.
While antioxidant serums are perfectly fine for using both during the day and at night, I personally enjoyed the most applying this product at night. I felt that this way I have more time to absorb all the high-quality ingredients into my skin.
I also loved combining this serum with an overnight mask (on such nights I skipped on a night cream) — to wake up with the most hydrated and radiant skin.
My Take on the Eye Cream:
One of the biggest concerns I have about my skin in my 30s is the beginning of intense crow’s feet wrinkles. My dermatologist once mentioned that I have strong facial muscles that’s why my expression lines development is premature.
For that reason, I regularly do preventative Botox injections. So we can “freeze” around eye muscles before they cause the development of deep wrinkles.
While Botox is great for treating the problem from the inside out, a great eye cream is crucial for keeping this area hydrated and evened out. I don’t have too many favorite eye creams as I’m very picky, but Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus Eye is one of my favorites.
My mom does not live in the U.S., but she’s been on top of the game when it comes to skincare. In fact, I have to thank her for hooking me up on skincare when I was… just 12 years old! She is a strong believer that the younger you start cleaning and hydrating your skin, the better it will look after all.
So, I guess she was a major inspiration for me while choosing my career—if there is such thing as skincare lover genes.
For this post, I interviewed mom via phone and translated her feedback into English. As I mentioned before, she still lives in my hometown in Belarus and doesn’t speak English, but since she is regularly receiving beauty mail from me, she totally knows what’s good and bad when it comes to skincare.
My mom’s take on Perricone MD Cold Plasma Face:
“I just turned 55 and I already had deep lines when I started using these products. For me, it was more about finding products that help me to even out the skin tone and calm down the redress in between regular facials, face massage appointments, and Botox appointments.
The face serum is lightweight and absorbs quickly. It left my skin hydrated but not sticky which is crucial as I don’t wear foundation and need products that don’t make my T-zone look too oily. The product has a scent to it, but I don’t mind it as I love using it in a combination with already fragranced La Mer Crème De La Mer.
When it comes to the results, I was impressed by what the serum did to my freckles and dry patches. Not overnight, of course, but I noticed a slight change in how much more hydrated my skin became. I think I need to continue using the product to, hopefully, see even more results.”
My mom’s take on Perricone MD Cold Plasma Eye:
“As for the eye cream, I enjoyed that it’s not too thick which made it perfect to wear during the day. I felt the need to pair it with a heavier eye cream at night, so for my p.m. routine Perricone MD Cold Plasma Eye Plus acted like an eye serum – which is handy to have in your beauty collection if you are over 50 years old.
Overall, my impression of the Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus Line is highly positive. Both products are expensive. But if I have a chance to use these products all the time, I would totally do it as I really see the results.”
