A couple months ago I was fortunate enough to review PerriconeMD Advanced Face Firming Activator. The timing was perfect after being exposed to the summer heat. I had some discoloration on my face and my pores were looking larger. I had seen Dr. Perricone on Oprah and wondered what all the fuss was about. I was impressed by his credentials, being a board certified clinical and research dermatologist and having written three New York Times Best Sellers. That was enough for me to be interested in trying out one of his products.
Perricone MD Face Firming Activator
Available at: sephora.com
I used the face firming activator hoping to correct my skin's imperfections, smooth out my skin, and get overall radiant looking skin. The website said that results would appear after 6 weeks, so I used it for close to 2 months to really see what kind of results I would get.
After the 3 weeks of everyday use, I saw great results. My skin looked more plump and healthy. My discoloration went away completely, giving my skin an even-toned look. The Advanced Face Firming Activator really did the job it promised to do. For more information about this product, see Dr. Perricone’s website, which goes in to detail about all of his skin products.
PerriconeMD has different kinds of regimens that Dr. Perricone recommends on his website to bring different skin problems into a rejuvenation process. Based on Dr. Perricone's knowledge and research, and having personally used one of his products and continuing to use it, I would definitely recommend this product to family and friends. The Advanced Face Firming Activator did give my face and neck a healthy glow along with minimizing wrinkles around my eyes. I do think it is worth $120 for a 2 oz. bottle. I still have more than half the bottle left after a couple months of everyday use. When it comes to your face-- the first thing people notice about you-- there isn’t a price, if it works.
