Giveaway: Super by Dr. Perricone harnesses health benefits of chia seeds

While my budget generally doesn’t allow for high end skincare products, the few times I have splurged, it’s been on Perricone products. So finding out about the new line of products called Super by Dr. Perricone that’s at a lower price point is very exciting. We’re still not talking drug store prices, but for the quality that I know Perricone products to be, this stuff is definitely reasonable.

Products in the line include moisturizers, cleansers and various treatments, all using antioxidants found in “superfoods.” The products harness the health benefits of chia seeds, a tiny seed that delivers more Omega-3 than flax or fish, as well as ingredients like capsaicin peppers, an ingredient found in chili peppers that stimulates skin’s natural radiance and carotenoids found in melon that are a great antioxidant.

And for the giveaway…Perricone is offering a product of your choice from the Super line (up to a $150 value) to one lucky winner!

And that winner is…Tina B! Tina said “I’m 45 and I have fine lines, wrinkles and my skin isn’t as taut as it used to be! I feel Cold Plasma would benefit me greatly!”

Congratulations, Tina! Make sure to respond to my email to claim your prize. Thanks to everyone who entered!

Review: Perricone Cold Plasma

If you’re 35 years old with slightly oily skin and problems with redness, there’s a moisturizer for you. If you’re 17 with dry, sensitive skin, there’s a moisturizer for you. If you’re 50 with aging skin and occasional breakouts, there’s a moisturizer for you. It seems these days like skincare companies have started focusing their efforts on very specific groups of people, or very specific issues.

Meanwhile, Perricone Cold Plasma bills itself as being “one solution for all ages, all skin types.” This relatively new product is the result of five years of research by a company already known for its top products. Cold Plasma promises to address the 10 most visible signs of aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, loss of firmness and redness.

I’ve been using Cold Plasma for a few weeks now, and it’s very different than other creams and moisturizers I’ve used. It’s much lighter than I would have expected (compared to heavy night creams) and love the consistency. It goes on really nicely and sinks in very fast. Oh, and it has a little spoon thing (I’m sure there’s a technical term for this) that you can use so you don’t have to dip  your germy fingers into the pot. Anyway, Because I’m used to using a heavier moisturizer, particularly at night, I wasn’t sure if this would do the job on my dry skin. However, I’ve found that my skin feels great in the morning after using Cold Plasma.

And for daytime use, it’s perfect under makeup because there’s not a hint of greasiness, and again, it sinks in really well. As I’ve said before, as a 20 something, I don’t expect to see a huge turnaround in my skin from using any one product. But I can absolutely tell the difference in my skin condition when I’m using certain products. This one definitely gets a thumbs up.
