My Perricone MD experience

I was lucky enough to receive Perricone MD - Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Therapy Rebalancing Elixir
from Influenster and you can see my full review in a previous post. This was a major hit for me and I decided I absolutely wanted to explore more of the brand after doing a bit of research on the brand. I was lucky enough to score the following products all at a discount but I still am disappointed I spent as much as I did. They’re crap! 🙈 Perricone MD is a pricey brand and wish I hadn’t messed up and slacked to get them returned in time to get my money back! 😢 LET ME BE CLEAR ABOUT ONE THING, EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT (BESIDES THE CBD ELIXER) PILLED. I’MTALKING WHEN YOU GET A SUNBURN AND IT STARTS TO PEEL. MY SKIN (NO MATTER WHAT I TRIED) WOULD PILL. I DEVELOPED AN AWFUL HABIT OF TOUCHING MY FACE AND PEELING THAT CRAP OFF. ALL PRODUCTS TESTED FOR 30 CONSECUTIVE DAYS Perricone MD - Vitamin C Ester Intensive Brightening Regimen 15% Serum
I found these on sale at Ulta. I love me a good vitamin c and thought I’d give them a try. It felt like putting toothpaste on my skin. Perricone MD - Vitamin C Ester CCC+ Ferulic Brightening Complex 20%
another vitamin c. Has a HORRID scent, which I know we sometimes have to just get by for the price of beauty. But again, used for 30 days straight and not a single noticeable change. Perricone MD - Vitamin C Ester Photo-Brightening Moisturizer SPF 30
I didn’t realize this had an SPF but I thought, bonus! Between trying either above vitamin c’s with it my face just pilled. Nothing worse than sitting at an office and you touch your neck or side of your face and you feel this ball, like it feels like a glob of “yuck” and it looks like dirt when mixed with your makeup. Have you ever experienced that? Ugh! Then I think, “is my entire face balling up?” Like is makeup coming off in awkward spots? 😳 Perricone MD - Multi-Action Overnight Intensive Firming Mask
so finally we get to the nighttime FIRMING mask! Ooooh I had high hopes for this baby! Let start firiming up that jawline and tighten the neck! Perricone is known for its revolutionary Cold Plasma Plus that is suppose to work miracles (ahem) and I thought maybe this would be a good start. You all know the answer. A resounding...”NO!” I spent more time watching tv and not even aware I was playing with the damn pilling going on til my husband pointed it out to me. Maybe if I had left it alone it might have worked 😆 doubt it as I always let my products sit for a good 45-hour before bed. I liked this mask consistency and it had no scent. Plus for that. If you’re asking my two scents, I’d say don’t waste your money on Perricone MD. Sure the ELIXER is good but at $99 a bottle, I think there are more affordable options. Are you ready for Christmas 🎄 Me? Nope, not even close ❤️🍒

What did I bring...?
I haven’t traveled in over a year! And having to choose what to bring with out of all my skincare choices was hard! I knew I wanted to lay-off the actives/chemicals as I’d be out in the sun on the beach all week but I also wanted to still be able to treat my skin if any issues popped up. Then it was, do I bring a bunch of stuff to photograph? Nope! In the end I just ended up picking my favorites as well as those that were small and easy to pack. The most easy to choose were from Youth to the People. They have a great line that could take me from cleansing to moisturizing and not needing any other brand at all. But that wouldn’t be much fun! 😂 Some of the standouts are: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm to remove sunscreen YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - With Pride Minis Kit in here is the Superfood Cleanser. Also the exfoliating mask and Superberry mask if I feel I need them. Plus I got the black cosmetic bag to put all my skincare in! Perricone MD - Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Therapy Rebalancing Elixir I’ve been using this ever since I got it about two weeks ago now and LOVE it! My skin feels and looks so much healthier. I’m impressed! Medik8 - Full Lash & Brow Advanced Lash & Brow Serum I don’t think I’ll ever be able to live without this! I’m almost through my first one and I’ve had to trim my brows TWICE now! They are far from perfect but I’m hoping with continued use I’ll need less time filling them in. I’ve started to also notice a difference in my lashes. When I curl them they touch the top of my eyelid! (I’ve been using this for @ 6 weeks) FACETORY - FaceTory Oats Calming Glow Weightless Facial Oil I brought this one along not only for myself, just Incase (although I have 5 bottles of facial sunscreen!) but for my family who isn’t as persistent as me at reapplying. This will be great for dry, sunburn skin. Help calm and restore it. One of my favorites! I’ll be hoping to share more this week on some of the sunscreens and body products I brought with. I got hit with my monthly cycle and unfortunately my periods are very heavy and very painful. So these first two days so far have been a bust 🥴 although today and overcast out anyway. Much ❤️ my @cheriefamily 🍒 #CherieCreator

CBD Addicted 🙋‍♀️
Ok, so I’ve only just received this via Influenster but I did a big happy dance when it arrived! One, I’ve always wanted to try Perricone MD and two, give me everything and anything with CBD! First off let me say that CBD is a hot topic (buzz word) right now. There have not been enough studies done to determine the benefits as a topical skincare ingredient but I personally will be a fan of choosing products with natural healing agents every single time. A little research will tell you that our bodies produce a naturally-occurring cannabinoids called endocannabinoids (they’re not at all related to the cannabis plant). There purpose is to support your skin’s endocannabinoid system, a complex network that’s job is to keep your skin in homeostasis—that is, a happy, healthy, and balanced state. When this system is out of whack, well, so is your skin. Your complexion may be irritated, oily, dry, blemish-prone, or even itchy. Again, more studies need to be done but what is believed CBD can do for your skin is: Slow the signs of aging Soothe your complexion Balance the skin I highly encourage you to read Perricone’s blog on CBD: https://www.perriconemd.com/blogs/forever-young-blog/why-cbd-in-skincare-is-the-next-big-thing I don’t feel you have to spend a fortune for a good quality product but when it comes to CBD I do insist on a high quality brand that has third party testing done. I personally have finally found a tincture I can trust that’s been working to help me with pain, anxiety and sleep issues. Perricone MD - Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Therapy Rebalancing Elixir is formulated with 99% pure Cannabidiol (CBD), this gentle, soothing elixir is designed to visibly hydrate, smooth texture and even skin tone for supple and radiant skin. Rebalances skin to its ideal pH level, leaving it feeling soft and smooth, looking healthy and refreshed. My first impressions are wonderful! I love it! It says to shake the bottle twice, pat your hands together and then gently press onto the face. It has just a tiny bit more of a consistency than water which is helpful transferring it from the hands to the face; it’s doesn’t seep out as fast. It has no noticeable scent. I am so eager to try more of the Perricone MD line. Please let me know if you’ve tried anything. And I will be sure to be back with an updated review after I’ve had this in my routine for sometime. Much ❤️ @cheriefamily 🍒 #CherieCreator

Best cleanser for my acne prone oily skin
I have washed my face with all types of Neutrogena cleansers that are specifically for acne prone oily skin, African black soaps by all kinds of brands, Kate Somerville’s Eradikate collections - basically all kinds of acne related cleansers you think of, I’ve tried them all. But all of them leave my face super dry after washing or cause my skin to breakout even more. And often times, my face is so oily the next morning I wake up. But after trying out the Perricone MD - The Jet Set from Macy’s, this cleanser is my favorite favorite product in this whole set. This cleanser, after the first use, gives me the softest and freshest skin. It doesn’t cause my face to feel dry at all and doesn’t cause that greasy feeling the next morning. You don’t need much of the product. How to use: Wet your face and hands. Put a dime sized amount in you hands and massage it into your face for at least a minute. I use a silicone face scrub to massage my face in an upward circular motion. This not only exfoliates my face but also makes sure the product is really cleaning in my pores. Rinse well. It can feel slippery on your face but as long as you don’t see suds then you are done. Pat dry with a towel. Do not rub your face with your towel. You can pull your skin and cause wrinkles and saggy skin. Use any kind of serum and moisturizer. I recommend Perricone MD - Vitamin C Ester Photo-Brightening Moisturizer SPF 30 because it has a whipped airy texture that makes you feel like you put on a cloud on your face. It’s also no thick so it won’t clog your pores. This product also lightens your dark spots. This is also part of their Jet Set collection. After the first use you can also feel how bouncy you skin is. After a month or so you can see your acne is generally reduced significantly. Use this with the DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel and that’s my acne skin routine morning and night. A lot of people don’t like the smell of this but it smells like baby powder. I don’t mind the smell and it doesn’t linger.

New Spring Moisturizer
#Perricone MD - Vitamin C Ester Photo-Brightening Moisturizer SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] Picked this up at Sephora recently in search of a new day time moisturizer that has SPF in it. I’m very picky with my moisturizers because a lot of times the SPF in it ends up breaking me out. It’s the first product I’ve tried from the brand Perricone MD and I can def say I’m enjoying it so far. The consistency is a little thicker than what I like for a moisturizer but I think that’s because of the SPF in it. I’m not sure if I can say it “brightens” my face but it does it’s job by keeping my face hydrated and plump.. hopefully once we can go outside I can test how well it protects me from the sun 😂 great spring pick up!!

Osea has a Memorial Day Offer!!
Osea has a Memorial Day Offer!!
Just trying to get the word out that Osea is offering a beautiful bodycare set free with a purchase of $125 until May 25!! My recommendations are: OSEA - Black Algae Flash Mask This beauty will scrub and absorb all the funk lingering in your pores and will leave your skin impossibly bright and smooth! It’s very intense so it’s good for a once a week treatment for good skin quick. OSEA - Hyaluronic Sea Serum This one is my favourite hydrating serum ever. It’s more of a gel texture and sits a little bit on the skin instead of absorbing right away so I find it’s hydrating over a long period. I use it morning and night on top of a hydrating toner and my skin instantly plumps up. Plus it’s just a stunning product OSEA - Advanced Protection Cream I am pretty obsessed with this cream. It’s a light but super nourishing and heavy moisturizer for those who are incredibly parched or who have mature skin. A little goes a seriously long way

Do you know what these 3 produ
Do you know what these 3 products have in common? One word - Ceramides! ⤵️ Ceramides are lipids that naturally exist in upper layers of the skin. Their main role is to protect the skin - they keep your skin safe from the environment, they are important to keep your skin hydrated, young and healthy. If your skin barrier is messed up and your skin is getting easily dehydrated then it's time to add a product with ceramides to your routine. Here are 3 products which I keep in my stash that contain ceramides: Neogen White Truffle Serum In Oil Drop - both serum and sheet mask from this series saved my skin this January. This serum contains Ceramide Np and I got a mini version with a Truffle Oil Cushion. COSRX Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream - I haven't tried this cream since I've been waiting for autumn or winter with this product but it's made out of Ceramide Np in 50%. Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Body Lotion - I tried samples of this lotion before and it also contains Ceramide. It might not be the best products if you check ingredients but somehow I felt the difference after the first use.

First of all, I have combination-oily and sensitive skin. I've seen this Greek brand before at Sephora. Let me share with you how I feel about it after using it for a month. 😊 Wild Rose Oil KORRES - Wild Rose Brightening Absolute-Oil It is a pure wild rose oil with real rose petals. It's lightweight and can be absorbed easily. On the first day, I used this oil to steam my face and my face immediately brightened up from the inside out! 😍 I have sensitive skin, so I saw some redness on my face after using it but I am satisfied with the results overall. Hydro-Biome Yogurt Mask KORRES - Hydra Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask With Real Greek Yoghurt This product doesn't have an obvious yogurt smell. The cream is very thick and looks white when applied, gradually becoming transparent. The directions say to just massage for a while. However, it started to ball up as I massaged it and my skin felt oily after washing it off. Noticing that silicone is one of the ingredients, I won't repurchase it.👎

💗 MO' HYDRATION — FOR DRY OR DULL SKIN One of my most favorite powdered face mask. Just mix with water and leave it on for 30 minutes then wash it off. I have dry sensitive skin and this one calms the redness and flakiness that strikes in the cold weather. It also minimized my pores, evened out my skin tone. • Key Ingredients: Kaolin Clay, Cacao, Whole Dry Milk, Honey, Aloe Vera, Avocado Seed. I forgot to mention it smells amazing 🥰 ——— 💗 MOISTURIZING FACE OIL FOR ALL SKIN TYPES • Ingredients: Almond Seed Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Coffee Seed Oil. I use it in the morning with make up on and at night before bed. It’s my anywhere-anytime oil, just roll under my eyes /on my face where I feel dried. Love the sweet coffee smell and light texture, never feel greasy or shinny. It’s so convenient, just roll and go.
