Perricone MD is a brand I’ve known about for sometime now but just never gotten around to trying out…until NOW!
When I was asked if I would like to test out some items from their Pre Empt Series I was delighted, you all know how much I love skincare.
The collection consists of, an exfoliator (toner), serum, eye cream and hydrating cream – I was lucky enough to try them all out.
The Pre Empt Series seemed like the perfect time to test out; yes I am only 22 years YOUNG, but it’s never too early to start preventing. Essentially I’m doing a Benjamin Button and I shall look like a baby when I’m 60, right?…
Packaging & Design
For me packaging and design is a big deal, I feel it shows how much effort a brand puts into a product and how much faith they truly have in it.
I ADORE all of the Perricone MD packaging, the medicine like glass bottles and scientific’esk labelling gives you that professional feel.

I may not be ‘toned’ but I am in fact toner MAD! I’m obsessed with trying out new toners, especially when I find a good one.
This is definitely a GOOD one.
The slight cooling and tingling sensation is pleasing, skin isn’t left irritated or taught.
After a few weeks of constant use, skin tone has improved dramatically.

GOOD eye creams are pretty hard to come by, most are pretty ‘meh’ and claim to do the same boring thing.
However Perricone MD have impressed me. Although this is a lightweight cream, after application the skin around my eyes feels/looks fuller and plump. I truly see instant improvement!
Plus anything with the hydration properties of avocado oil I’m bound to love.

This is truly a new favourite of mine, skin feels plump and soft in an instant.
Being winter and blooming freezing, my skin has definitely suffered. This formulation has really helped, skin is hydrated for the day so no need to re-apply.
Like I said this was my first time experiencing products from Perricone MD and I’m SUPER impressed. All the items from the Pre:Empt range have instant results and after a good few weeks of constant daily usage I can see major improvement in the plumpness and hydrating of my skin.
I cant wait to try more from the brand!
