Perricone MD Blue Plasma, a Daily No-Peel Peel

 

Perricone MD Blue Plasma

Perricone MD, a cosmeceuticals brand founded by Dr. Nicholas Perricone in 1997, has recently launched a daily no-peel peel product and it is the new BLUE PLASMA. This non-acidic daily peel for brightening and radiance, is scientifically formulated to deliver the benefits of a more traditional peel, without the side effects.

For years, Dr. Perricone has warned against the use of harsh chemical peels and abrasive exfoliators as methods to unveil new skin surface. Whether administered in spas, doctor’s offices, or purchased over the counter, their effects are not potentially damaging short term, but can impact skin’s long-term health. In addition, traditional peels can be acidic and work by “assaulting” the skin surface to get results. They essentially burn the skin off, attacking both dead and healthy skin cells, that often leads to redness, irritation and sensitivity. Scrub-like exfoliators create micro-tears on the surface, making skin more thin or fragile over time.

Upon spending years researching alternatives that deliver the same surface benefits without causing damage or irritation to the skin, Dr. Perricone created BLUE PLASMA.

2 New Skin Boosters – Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% & StriVectin-SD Power Serum For Wrinkles

.

Recently, I was privileged to be invited by Luxasia Singapore for a cozy private dinner (a table of 10 including 4 guests and myself) to preview 2 of their latest anti-aging treatments – Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% and StriVectin-SD Power Serum For Wrinkles.

It was a super relaxing dinner and we have a great time sharing beauty tips and preferred skincare regimens. Being an anti-aging skincare fanatic, I’m always on the lookout for skincare products that are well packed and formulated with Vitamin C. So when I was introduced to Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15%, I was super excited! Vitamin C is great!

Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% – S$198 / 4 x 10ml

Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% is a revolutionary night treatment formulated with 15% Vitamin C Ester to boost collagen production, firm and smooth skin texture and brighten skin’s appearance.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and is proven to help boost collagen production and brighten up the skin tone. It may also help to reverse sun-damaged skin. In fact, I have been using a well-packed 5% Vitamin C (L-ascorbic Acid) serum for a while and I can actually see results from it.

Though Vitamin C is very potent (at high concentration) however it is pretty unstable hence how the product is packed actually plays an important role for the efficacy of the product. I must say Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% is probably one of the best packed high concentration Vitamin C products available in the market.

Review – Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum

.

A few months ago, I have received a couple of awesome Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals products shortly after I have attended my first Perricone event to preview the newly launched Cold Plasma at Metro Paragon.

Inside the lovely gift box, it contains Vitamin Ester Eye Serum, Nutritive Cleanser, Serum Prep and Face Finishing Moisture.

Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals, a US dermatologist-developed line, is exclusively developed by Nicholas Perricone MD and he’s the author of the beauty book titled “The Wrinkle Cure” and “The Perricone Promise”.

Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals is officially launched in Singapore in late April 2010 and is now available at escentials @ Tangs Orchard, Metro Paragon, Robinsons Centrepoint, Robinsons Raffles City. You may also find Perricone MD Skincare at Sephora but it doesn’t carry the full range.

I love serums and I especially keen on serum that is exclusively designed for eye areas. So when I was presented with a full size Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum for eye, I was extremely delighted.

And after trying this vitamin C eye serum for more than a month, I’m now ready for a review and I can’t wait to share the goodness of this product with my readers.

Perricone MD Skincare Is Finally In Singapore

.

If you have read the #1 New York Times bestseller book “The Wrinkle Cure”, you probably will know the famous author Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone, M.D. In fact, I only get to discover his range of products Perricone MD Skincare after reading his first book “The Wrinkle Cure” two years ago.

.

.

In the book “The Wrinkle Cure”, Nicholas Perricone, a renowned anti-aging expert, features the all-natural program that has already helped thousands, the instant Face-Lift ingredient DMAE that tightens skin almost instantly, the sugar taboo that will speed aging, and the antioxidant (alpha lipoic acid, vitamin C Ester) plan revitalizes your skin from the outside and inside, reducing and effectively erasing wrinkles and blemishes, no matter your skin color or type, no matter your age!

.

.

He is also the bestseller author of The Perricone Promise and The Perricone Prescription. And his most recent books are Dr. Perricone’s 7 Secrets to Beauty, Health and Longevity and Ageless Face, Ageless Mind.

Recently I was delighted to be invited for a preview on Perricone MD Skincare and the newly launched COLD PLASMA at Metro Paragon. Upon arriving, I was immediately served with a refreshing green tea cocktail and a palette of fruits and sandwiches.

Dr. Perricone, a board certified clinical and research dermatologist, is regarded as the Inflammation Theory of Aging. After years of research Dr. Perricone arrived at the conclusion that cellular inflammation may be the underlying cause of wrinkles. According to Dr. Perricone, this inflammation is not the redness that is visible to the naked eye but rather microscopic irritation that takes place in your cells leading to cellular damage. He believes that this inflammation is responsible for skin-related problems like breakouts, wrinkles and loss of firmness.

.

.

Dr. Perricone pioneers a three-tiered program of using natural antioxidants in diet, supplements and topical formulations from his award-winning line of skin care products and cosmeceuticals to reduce the age-accelerating effects of inflammation. Through his program this type of inflammation can be stopped, which slows down the skin’s aging process and even reverses existing damage.

“Wrinkled, sagging skin is not the inevitable result of growing older. It is a disease and you can fight it. You can look your best, feel your best, and enjoy beautiful skin and optimal health every day of your life.” – Dr. Perricone
