Most Helpful Positive Review It Works!!
I have been using this 90 day kit by Perricone MD for a little over a month and so far the results are amazing for me! I am a 34 year old woman that struggles with PCOS which causes a lot of acne for myself. I have all types of acne, such as pustules, blackheads, whiteheads, and painful cystic acne mostly on the lower portion of my face. I have used many different facial cleansers, treatments, and moisturizers to hopefully help my skin, but I never really saw many improvements. I absolutely hate looking at my skin without makeup on, because how bad it can get and it can be pretty upsetting for me. I took a before picture, which was so hard for me to do considering the condition of my skin. Once I got the kit, I immediately started using it, hoping it would be better than the others. The cleanser is very gentle and non-foaming, but I could get a little bit of bubbles when I used my battery powered facial brush. The texture is similar to this natural toothpaste, not gritty just thick and lotion like. You wash your face twice a day, then follow up with a treatment. There are two treatments the Calming Treatment and Hydrator (for the morning) and the Retinol Treatment and Moisturizer (for night). None of the products left my face feeling dry or greasy, they helped my skin feel very balanced and comfortable. After over a month of use, I took an after photo and I was pretty surprised! I had zero active acne, my redness and irritation had calmed dramatically, my face appeared brighter, and one pro you can't see in a picture is the pain from the cystic acne I once had was gone (along with the cystic bumps). I still have more time left in this kit, so I can't wait to see how I will look and feel at the end of the 90 days! I am so impressed and thankful for this kit. I'm not 100% clear of redness, but with everything else being so much better, my self-esteem is improving... I even went out in public without makeup on and that says a lot for me. I highly recommend this!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not too fond of the cleanser, but overall pleased
I have now used the Perricone Md Prebiotic Acne Therapy 90 Day Kit for a month now. I have tried to use all 3 steps everyday for the best possible results. I am overall pretty pleased with how things are going with the product. My acne is still present, but I have at least half of what I normally do. I have noticed that the texture of my skin has greatly improved. My forehead was pretty textured, and I had very tiny bumps/forming acne. That issue has nearly been eliminated. I have also noticed that the complexion of my skin has been improved. Much of my redness/blotchy color has been eliminated. As far as the product itself, the smell isn't too over powering, but does smell like chemicals. It hasn't dried out my skin any. The hydrator and moisturizer were easy to apply, and a little went along way. I felt the drying time was sufficient and didn't leave my face feeling sticky like some other products. There were a couple of things I didn't care for. The first thing was that the cleanser is pretty thick. It doesn't lather very well, or suds up very well. It also made my skin feel warm/flush every time I have used it. It wasn't irritating, it just sort of alarmed me because I wasn't expecting it to do that. I would like to say that I don't think the cleanser would last the entire 90 days. I've been using the amount suggested, and I'm half way out of the cleanser. I feel like the hydrator and the moistorizer will probably last the 90 days. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the results so far, and look forward to see if I see anymore improvements in the next 60 days. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who suffers from mild acne, or anyone looking to improve the texture or even-ness of their skin tone. I'm not sure that I would purchase this set again for the price, but I really enjoyed the moistorizer and the hydrator and plan to continue to purchase those two in the future.
Reviewed by 605 customers Don't be scared to try this product!
Ali Rose from Merced, CA
I haven't used a 3 step acne treatment since proactive first came out, I was skeptical about starting another; especially since I had never heard of this brand.. BUT so far so good. I've been using a week now and can already see that my skin looks less irritated, I don't have any new breakouts, my old breakouts are less red, and look like they are disappearing. I'm excited for another week, I haven't had clear skin for a couple years now.
I have combination skin. I have an oily T-zone, I mainly break out on my chin/jaw & cheeks. I do not moisturize for the reason being that when I do I tend to wake up with breakouts over night, so I have pretty dry skin as well.
Not to make a horribly long review, but just so you know what to expect.. the actual cleanser when you go to lather your face, don't be shocked that it doesn't look soapy or even feel like you have anything on your face, trust me you do. The step 2 & 3 treatments do go a long way with a small amount.
Don't be scared to try this product, you won't know what ACTUALLY works for you until you try it. You can't base a beauty/self care product on what other people say. Everyone is different.
Really love It
Cbreaux88 from New Iberia, LA
I've used multiple acne treatments expensive only can be shipped treatments and they didn't work or made my face really dry. I decided to give this a try and it's only been a week and I can see a big difference in my skin. My acne is clearing within days. My skin is looking clear and soft. I'm 32 and still shouldn't get acne but I do especially during that time of the month. This doesn't burn my skin like others I have tried and I honestly believe this is working great for my skin. I have a combination of skin in the morning when I wake up it's oily and through out the day it's dry. My pores look amazing as well. I wish I would have took a before picture because I am actually amazed at how great my skin is looking and feeling.
Very harsh on skin
Monica from California
After the first
Time I used this product on my whole face it felt sunburned. This is very harsh on skin. Definitely not for sensitive skin. The night cream has a horrible smell. I had to wash it off because it gave me a headache.
I would buy this product again and again it's amazing!!
Catherine from Florida
Exactly as directed for best results!
Did not help with breakouts
TeeRon from Fredericksburg VA
This product cleared up the acne I had, but I continued to break out. It also dried out my skin a bit too much. I'll finish using the product, but I won't be buying again
Sunny from SoCal
I have used better products that cost way less than this. The cleanser is alright, but the night and day moisturizers are sticky and don't absorb well. I felt like it made my skin look dry.
Wouldn't recommend, and wouldn't buy again.
Ugh from Minnesota
2 stars are only because the cleanser does a great job at removing makeup and actually cleaning the face. But I had a horrible experience with the kit and the other products. I used these products for a month and a half and my skin looks and feels horrible, worse than it ever has. The products made my skin dry, sensitive, and full of acne. At the end of 1.5 months I cannot take how uncomfortable I feel and I am throwing them away.
Good so far!
Lauren from Fairfax, Va
This product is easy to use, smells nice and makes my skin soft.
YH from Los Angeles
This acne system is AMAZING. Take it from a life long sufferer of acne with sensitive skin, this is the only system that I have ever used that not only works but didn't irritate my skin. Thank you Dr. Perricone for making this!
Did not work for me
Jj from Mobile AL
Wasted my money on this. Been using for 2 weeks and have not seen a improvement at all!
Jackie from Idaho
I've been using this for almost a week and i can see some difference but not much. My skin isn't as bad but I just want to get rid of what I have. Although it's making my face peel and i'm not sure if that's normal? i do have done irritated stops on my face as well :( i think this is just too strong.
Don't get sucked in
M the busy person from Dallas, Tx
I tried their products, some made my skin burn, no real results and they won't ever stop sending them even after you cancel 2 times! Wasted so much time on the phone w/ people reading a script they don't listen to you. ☹️ Hopefully 3rd time is the charm.
Worst Breakout in Years!
Rachael G from Minneapolis, MN
My skin has never been perfect. I'm in my mid 20s and I was getting sick of getting small breakouts around my period. I didn't do my research before I stumbled across this terrible product. I've been using the product optimistically for the last 3 weeks. Each week my skin has gotten worse. I thought maybe it's the "initial breakout" I've heard about. Whatever it is, I need to discontinue immediately. My skin hasn't looked this bad since I was 16, and the only change has been this awful product. Not only is the cleanser super weird feeling, it doesn't remove makeup and dries out my skin. The worst thing has to be the day cream. I swear they just use dog saliva in this product. If you care about your skin don't buy this product.
This product is the TRUTH
Trin from Dallas,TX
I found out about this product through a YouTube commercial and instantly purchased it... I won't lie I was desperate to try ANYTHING so I instantly purchased the product.. not even 60 days into the kit and my acne started clearing up tremendously, and I've never loved my skin so much.
Olivia from Santa Cruz, Ca
I've been using this product for 2 weeks and I've seen a major difference. My skin is so much smoother, my pores are smaller, and my acne has diminished significantly. Only thing is my skin is sensitive and it tends to make it dry, and red right after I apply it. Overall it does what it's supposed to do
Lexi from California
I'm working on the front line as a nurse and I have to wear a lot of PPE in the heat. My skin suffered so bad! I had some pretty bad acne. This was the only product that cleared my face. I only use the night lotion every other night because it can be drying to my sensitive skin. I never write reviews but this product really works for me.
I want to buy it for my daughter but we cant afford it
Mya from 4237 Navaho Ave Memphis TN
I think it is going to be good on her face her look bad she got a lot of pimples and black spot
Sam from Tennessee
I've struggled with acne my whole life. I've tried every product known to man for acne. I've used expensive regimens but was in the market for something more budget friendly. And this was it!! During the summers I break out horribly on my neck and chest. I'm not kidding when I say within two days my chest started clearing up. My face is so smooth and my makeup applies beautifully now. I will literally recommend this to EVERYONE!!
Lisa from Pittsburgh, PA
I really have this a chance. I started using the product around the middle to end of May.
Today is Sept. 5th and I have not noticed the acne clearing up. I have used it faithfully everyday. The acne may look nice for a day, but then it comes back the next & I also get more in other areas.
I will buy this product again and again.
Megan from Undisclosed
Obsessed. I've been using these products for the past month and my skin has never been better.
I would buy again
Jacqueline from Undisclosed
Love the products I see a more clear skin thanks
I love this product
Regina from Undisclosed
I love this product, very simple. I have extremely oily skin and this works great for me. I don't use any extra moisturizer in the summer. My skin cleared up so far and also texture / discoloration improving. I love the packaging and that they are serums.
NEW HOLY GRAIL REGIMEN!
Cass from Honolulu, HI
I've tried to many acne products - many that flat out didn't work, irritated my skin or made my skin flakey and dry. The cleanser is light, and kept my skin smooth and I felt clean without being stripped. The day and night moisturizers are light and sink into the skin quickly. I also have the spot treatment and my breakouts were totally gone by the morning.
I would not buy this kit again
CL from New York, NY
I have combination skin that is acne-prone along my jawline and chin. I am going to break it down into the three products in the kit.
I have been using the Probiotic Acne Therapy Regimen since June 23 (so roughly 4 weeks now)
Gentle & Soothing Cleanser
This cleanser feels like a combination of a cleansing balm (oily) and a silicone product. After leaving it on my skin for around 30 seconds, my skin begins to tingle (borderline almost sting). I found that using a gentler foam cleaner to remove this cleanser has dramatically reduce skin irritation. I've never used a cleanser with this consistency, so points on creativity I suppose.
Calming Treatment & Hydrator (AM)
I found this produce to be leave my face feeling sticky and tingly. In addition, I was under the impression that with this kit, the Hydrator would result in the lack of need of an AM moisturizer. This Hydrator to be moisturizing enough for my skin. I suggest mixing the hydrator in with either a light weight AM moisturizer or in combination with a serum and an oil.
Retinol Treatment & Moisturizer (PM)
While this product is definitely thicker than the AM Hydrator, it is still not enough to moisturize. Like the Hydrator, it leaves my skin feeling sticky and a bit tacky. It feels like the product sticks to my face rather than penetrating my skin barrier.
When I started using the kit, it seemed like my skin was very dewy; however, as I continued to use the kit, I realized that it was my own skin producing more oils to compensate for the lack of moisture in either Step 2 products. In addition, this kit has not been proven to be beneficial to my skin texture. All in all, I have not seen a reduction in acne (in fact, I have more acne and in areas of my face where I have never broke out prior). I will not return the product because customers are responsible for the return shipment costs. After I finish this kit, I will be switching skin regimens.
Ecstatic About Smooth Even Skin
Xtina Rose from Orange County
The acne kit and the pore minimizing toner are definitely a game changer for me. By day 4 of using as instructed, I felt and saw a significant difference In my skin. I have suffered for the past couple of years clusters of under ground black heads on my checks forehead, nose, and chin. It bothered me that my make up would magnify the bumpy texture. I changed my diet, make up brand, brushes, wearing no make up, and used anti aging skincare. nothing worked for me. I didn't realize that at my age 34 yrs old that I needed acne relief. My skin is now smooth, pores are minimized, the under ground pimples practically gone, my foundation and primer sets and wears on my skin perfectly. I can positively say I am in love with the appearance of my skin and Dr Perricone's products.
