What could replace cosmetics La Mer

Want to confess to treason…

Some time ago I cunningly changed the perennial favorite La Mer with a doctor of medicine by the name Perricone. Already 6 months I use makeup from Perricone MD, and a strategic reserve La Mer lies in the wine fridge and waiting in the wings.

So, after six months of testing, a progress report ready.

For the six months cosmetics, Perricone MD, and I shook badly. To be exact, at latitude we rode from Moscow to Yekaterinburg, and in longitude from Saigon to Vorkuta. In General, we’ve seen (Vorkuta you a special Hello!).


Heroes of the post Assembly. Attention! This summer brand Perricone MD has changed the packaging design, but the name, composition and TX for all funds of that question in the post remains the same.

Recall that the experimental (I) 35+ years, the normal skin without obvious signs of aging, but prone to rashes in humid tropical climate, and in Moscow prone to dullness and dehydration. So I respect the tools that deeply moisturize, contain antioxidants and does not clog pores.

1. Moisturizer without oil โ€” Perricone MD PRE:EMPT Series Oil Free Hydrating Cream


Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Hexylene Glycol, Cetearyl Olivate, Glyceryl Stearate, Squalane, Dimethyl MEA, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Lepidium Sativum Sprout Extract, Tetrahydrodiferuloylmethane, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Tetrahydrodemethoxydiferuloylmethane, Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside, Sodium Hyaluronate, Gluconolactone, Tetrahydrobisdemethoxydiferuloylmethane, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Acetyl Tyrosine, Panthenol, Lecithin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sclerotium Gum, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Sorbitan Olivate, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance/Parfum, Amyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Linalool.

The perfect thing for combination and normal skin. Light, instantly absorbed, but gives the feeling of moisture all day. Does not clog pores. It falls on makeup like bare skin โ€“ i.e. with no problems.

Recently read a post where Oil Free Hydrating Cream qualify as anti-aging cream because it includes DMAE. This is not true. The ingredient DMAE โ€“ Perricone chip, it is placed in the majority of products, the brand, in addition to a series for sensitive skin. But the concentration of DMAE in the media and the Perricone MD series is different.

Series PRE:EMPT from which our hero created for combination skin, podverzhdennyh stress, smog, navasivayam. It could be the girl of 25 years and a woman over 45, so a series of PRE:EMPT is not about lifting, but about something else. About improved skin color due to the shock dose of antioxidants, about hydration and about the reduction of inflammation for combination skin. Lifting and smoothing wrinkles in the description of the series undeclared and in fact they are not. Not to be disappointed in the purchase, it is necessary to understand exactly what the cream anti-age.

Oil Free Hydrating Cream improves skin tone, moisturizes, does not clog pores, normalizes oiliness without izlesene matting and reduces the tendency to inflammation. all this makes it a 5+.

Despite a regular lack of sleep, after 2-3 months of use Oil Free Hydrating Cream (and a series of PRE:EMPT in General), I began to neglect the Foundation as a mandatory element of the makeup. I used to daily use of a light Foundation or tinted powders to make skin look “livelier”. Now my skin is in itself “glows”, so in the morning I just apply colorless with SPF, shut the corrector unit of inflammation (if any), and the rest of the time be given to eye makeup and lips. Without tone I painted 15 years ago, now again returned to this practice. Not cream, but a time machine, yeah.

Of course, it’s not only the cream, and the integrated use of the serum, cream and tonic from Perricone. So I will not say that “the cream works miracles,” but the series PRE:EMPT in the complex creates ๐Ÿ˜Œ

For clarity, posted Instagram videos of my skin without Foundation and even without skin funds. That is to say, “for the market” answer pair ๐Ÿ‘ฎ

2. The serum improves the skin – Perricone MD PRE:EMPT Series Skin Perfecting Serum

General view
The liquid composition and texture (note the dropper)

Light, watery, absorbs quickly. Does not cause irritation and does not clog pores. Whey, like all tools series PRE:EMPT that are designed to “revive the skin tone” and makes it: the effect of integrated use of the cream + serum I described above.

But the lightweight texture it has the serious disadvantage of very fast flow. I was surprised when after 2 months of use every morning, the jar in 30 ml of dried up…So fast serum I ran out for the first time. There is one drawback, which is clear in comparison: in addition to skin tone serum more does not solve any problems…but her friend (about which below), not only helps to improve skin tone, but the tone improves.

3. Serum vitamin C ester โ€” Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Brightening Serum


General view to rebrandingthe Composition and texture

It has all the advantages of whey PRE:EMPT: improves tone, absorbed well and does not clog pores. And, additionally, Ester Vitamin C Brightening Serum has a light astringent effect. So my skin aged 35+ this serum came better than “youth” PRE:EMPT.

Bonus number two. Due to the more viscous structure, serum with ester vitamin C is consumed more slowly. Judging by the speed of consumption, it will last for 3-4 months.

Bonus number three. Serum with ester vitamin C can be used for areas around the eyes, which is rare for sera in General, but for antioksidantnykh special curiosity. Eyes like dark circles go away, there is a lifting. Perhaps, in the eye area are particularly noticeable tightening effect serum.

Lack of redness, universal use, rapid visual effect… Ester Vitamin C Brightening Serum is my favourite antioxidant serum ๐Ÿ˜

Period of use: 2+ months (until the first jar in the process)

4. Exfoliating lotion tightens pores – Perricone MD PRE:EMPT Series Oil-Free Exfoliating Pore Refiner

View to changing the packagingof the shampoo looks pretty harmless…

The only means from the PRE:EMPT that I did not come. The lotion needs to deal with the inflammation or oily skin, but I guess my skin was dry and inflamed. After about 2 weeks of regular use of the lotion 2 times a day, my skin became dry and swear by the acne. The lotion cost me 4000 rubles per 118 ml. My toad was convulsing. I decided as a hedgehog of anegdote continue to prick yourself with a cactus, but began to use the lotion 1 time per day. Fortunately, the skin has returned to normal. Unfortunately, there is no benefit from Oil-Free Exfoliating Pore Refiner I saw. After 2 months, the lotion has ended, and I returned to the tonic, with which I began the acquaintance with the brand Perricone MD. Read about it below.

Period of use: 2 months (or one bottle)

5. Refreshing facial toner โ€” Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimiser Toner

Appearance in the old packageStructure. By the way, anti-aging DMAE in this tonic at the first position of the list

He smells like soap. It is very expensive for a toner. It is a small, impractical glass bottle… do not buy Intensive Pore Minimiser Toner โ€“ save me!

He’s my Superman, my Hulk, my spider-Man and all superheroes of comics in one package.

Due to this stink and Oil Free Hydrating Cream for the first time in the tropics I’m not crying about my pimply share. No inflammation for a month in the jungle! At the same time my skin has been properly moisturized and radiant health. For me, a month in the tropics and without inflammation is a miracle akin to the meeting of a rainbow with a Unicorn.

In General, I’m going to cry of happiness and hug a precious bottle with a volume of 118 ml for 45 bucks, and you all the best! If you are interested in this brand, the continuation of the story about Perricone (Yes, I became a fan and now I have a lot of cosmetics of this brand) will be in the next post ๐Ÿ˜‹

Angered by PS

I think you noticed that in the post I write prices in us dollars… No, I’m not moved to Asia to relocate… just came across the store greed.

The first funds Perricone MD, which I bought, it’s Intensive Pore Minimiser Toner and Oil Free Hydrating Cream. I bought them Cum spontaneously, but at home after the purchase I decided to read about the brand on the official site of Perricone MD. I was shocked to see that price on the website 2 times lower than the prices of CDs. I understand the view of the Grand theatre and all that, but a luxury brand approximately equaled the prices in Russia and in Europe. La Mer, Kiehl’s, Chanel… they have no need to hunt for websites to purchase cheaper and many girls already Unlearning before you buy to compare the price of “over the hill”. But suddenly Perricone MD back in the “good old” when kosmatka for adequate money or had to order overseas or bring on the chaise. Dear Department store, fu to be…๐Ÿ˜ถ
