Most Helpful Positive Review Perricone MD Cold Plasma + Sub D/Neck
First I would love to thank Influenster for sending me this product free to review. Background. Soon to be 41 and have a history of applying either baby oil or the famous suntan oil in the brown bottle and laying out in the sun all summer on almost a daily basis from the age of about 10-30. In my early 20's I also frequented the tanning bed to the point to where I got those spots that felt like skin tags. But with that being said I get told all the time that I look way younger than my actual age and almost always get carded. So my neck is in pretty much great condition, or so I thought. Upon initial inspection I noticed three pretty deep lines running into the horizontal line on my neck that I've had since birth. No sagging, but born with a bit of a double chin and I have a bad habit of digging my chin into my chest. This has caused a wrinkle on my left jawline. My chest tends to get a rash that only responds to a famous medicated shampoo that starts with a D and ends with a T. If I sleep on my side there are wrinkles on chest after waking up. Prior to this self trial I had a regimen of twice a day applying my usual neck cream. The well known expensive ageless line with the purple lid. I have an issue with that being sticky and hair sticking to my neck after application. I've given this about a month of day and night application. It has a wonderful consistently. Upon first inspection I misjudged it and felt it was too watery. This jar contains two ounces of treatment but you only need a small amount, just like my other neck treatment, which is very important to me. What I love about application is this immediately absorbs into skin and I'm not pulling and tugging because it has a great slip consistency. It absorbs but it doesn't disappear and leave me with a dry neck. My neck is hydrated but my hair doesn't blow on my neck and stick. That is a plus. There has been a great improvement in the three lines on my neck. They are greatly diminished. It's not doing too much of anything for that deep horizontal line I have had since birth. It does appear to have a slightly blurred effect on its "event horizon" if you would call it. The two beginning points of the line. I don't expect it to do too much for that. I've been applying it in the same frequency on my chest and I haven't had much of a rash situation going on except for one night of itching and my face broke out in the same situation. It always happens when I am stressed and has been going on for over a decade. I applied it before bedtime and immediately calmed down the itching and burning. I'm surmising it was the hydration that helped but I'm not an expert. In the morning I wasn't on fire with red flaky spots which is what happened every single time before starting this regimen. I'm still going to use my medicated shampoo, though. But I don't feel like I really need to. My skin isn't screaming for help like usual. The line on my jaw is still there. But I can see it has been diminished as well. My makeup isn't immediately falling into it and leaving a thick line of foundation like it was which leads me to believe this product is helping that situation as well. As far as sagging. Honestly I am a bad candidate for seeing results for that. I'll have to deal with it sooner than later but right now I have yet to have to deal with that. As far as price. It isn't inexpensive by a long shot. After a month of applying twice a day I am over half empty. But I have accidentally applied too much more than several times. Like I stated, it seems watery and IMO that makes me think I need more than I do and there's a learning curve to it. Overall I'm happy. Will I continue to purchase? Possibly if it continues to go on sale from time to time. Last time I checked a famous beauty store it was on sale for significantly less than full price. The only con is the price. Not everyone will find this as a feasible option for them. I would like to see more product for the price. To me it would be well worth it if there were twice as much product for the price. I only wish I could have tested it for longer to see how long it takes on average to empty a jar.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not much difference
I was really excited to try this product. I have tried other Perricone products and loved them. I'm 47 yrs old and I can honestly say my neck looks pretty good for my age. And I would like to keep it looking good. When I first opened it up I smelled it. I read other reviews and some even when on to say it had a "fishy smell." I didn't think so, at first. I thought it had a nice subtle "clean smell." Then I put it on in the morning and throughout the day I kept smelling something "bad." I even went to the bathroom to check my armpits thinking maybe I forgot to put deodorant on. Nope that wasn't it. Then I realized it was the neck cream. I just couldn't get past the smell. I can't really say it smelled "fishy" it just wasn't a good smell. I couldn't wait to take it off in the evening. So, I decided to use it before bed only. As far as seeing any results after using this product for 2 wks I see none. Yes, my neck feels smooth after applying it, but it does also after I put on my regular moisturizer. But I will say that my neck feels a little tighter after it dries down. I like that this has good ingredients, I think I just need to use this longer to notice any kind of results. I will continue to use this product until I finish it, and maybe give an update if I notice any visible results.

I had never considered myself with sensitive skin as I have tried many products and not had any adverse effects. Unfortunately my jaw and neck became itchy after the second use and I broke out with splotchy marks. And yes, it has a fishy smell.
Dzm from Baltimore Md
This product is not only too expensive but it does not in any way sink into your skin. Stryvectin is so much better. I bought it as a beauty steal and it's just horrible
Complete waste of money
JJ from Phoenix
I have used 2 full bottles of this and saw no results. After consistently using it for months I can confirm that you'd be better off just buying a regular moisturizer and using retinol to address fine lines and wrinkles.
I love this product!!
Brookie from Torrance, Ca
I have been using this cream for almost a month and I love it!! I had lines on my chest from sun poisoning years ago and the cream is making them less noticeable and my chest looks smoother. In addition, my chin and neck area look tighter and smoother.
I like his products. Wish our Ulta in Hot Springs, Ark

Wish our Ulta would start caring Dr. Perricone
Love this product
Mc from Ashburn, VA
I use it once a day at night and can already see the improvement after a few weeks
Best neck cream on the market!
rickyrebarco from North Florida
I use this product religiously every night and most mornings also. Even though I am in my 60l's my neck looks good, seriously. The product plumps your skin and gives it the elasticity of youth. I cannot recommend this product highly enough. It's been a game changer for me.
I love this product
Silvina from Florida
The appearance of my neck has improved
Lola from MD
I'm pretty upset about my crepey neck. Tried a ton of expensive products. This works better than Strivectin, Crepe Erase. Only works while you have it on. Treatment, not a cure 😪 Smells pretty bad too. I was happy to get it half off. Wouldn't buy at full price
Already bought a second jar
Benny from Newport, RI.
I really like this product. It is not a heavy cream but lighter and seems to really be absorbed in the skin quickly. I am close to 70, and at my age, there are few products that I've found that make a noticeable difference, but this is one! My neck looks more hydrated, wrinkles less obvious and the sagging around the jawline even seems a bit better. I am using it pretty religiously in the morning and at night and I'm halfway through my first jar, so the improvements didn't take several months. It's a bit pricey, but there are some good sales.
Works well, smells bad
Just J from SoCal
This cream works better than the others I've tried. Within a short while of application, the slightly loose and crepe like skin on my upper neck is firmed up. Unfortunately, I can't get over the smell. It's a dirty chemically smell that reminds me of fish. I can smell it for hours, once applied. My nose is not sensitive, so I really think others might be able to smell it on me, and I compensate by wearing extra perfume. I love the skin firming, but don't think I will buy it again. I don't want to walk around being paranoid that people think I smell like I haven't bathed.
Good, but not the same.
Donna from Undisclosed
The consistency of this cream does not feel as "firming" as the last jar I had. At first I thought I had purchased the wrong neck cream so I then ordered your other version, but that also seems the same, not as firming. I will continue however to use both creams as I do like your brand very much. I wold be interested to know what other long time users of Perricone think about the neck & chest creams.
Something that actually works!
Betty from Undisclosed
I've been using this product for only 2 weeks and am blown away. Honestly I wish I had taken a before pic but I didn't think it was going to work, like everything else I've purchased in the past. I have skin right in the center of my neck only that is showing signs of wrinkles and losing firmness. Two days after starting this cream, the neck skin is plumper and I have to actually tilt my head way for you to see the lines. Well worth the price. It has also cleared up some redness and scarring on the neck from plucking those pesky chin hairs (scarring from using tweezers and picking at it all day sometimes). I'm so happy I purchased a face cleanser, cold plasma face serum and moisturizer.
I'm going to look for a new product.
Ruth from Newington, CT
Been using Cold Plasma Plus for+ sub-d for at least 18 months. Don't see any improvement in my neck.
Better than anything I have tried
Glama from Mich
I have been using this for about 4 months. And I have used and bought so many neck creams that have never worked. Including Perricone Neck therapy. BUT THIS is a game changer. I can see my neck not as droopy/crepey and it has just firmed up the appearance of my neck overall. Im so happy with my results!!
Whipped so not enough product to see if it works
Terri from TN
Not worth the money. I recommend StriVectin, tightening neck cream plus, with lifting complex. Much thicker & last longer & does a great job.
Caused Significant Itchiness
Chase from Georgia
Product caused significant itchiness and would not recommend for that reason.
USE SUNSCREEN WITH THIS PRODUCT
CORALWAYPRINCESS from Miami
So far the product is amazing but if you're going outside especially with this sun right now you need to layer some sunscreen! IT WILL BURN
Great product that makes a difference !
Joyce from Undisclosed
Great product that I have been using for years .
Maria from Undisclosed
I love all products ❤️
Carla from Los Angeles
This line of products never seem to disappoint. I see results in the texture of my skin within such a short period of time. I'm hooked.
I am already in my 3rd.
Maye from San Jose
I am in my 3rd bottle. Not sure whether it really firm up my neck but think it does help because at 64, the skin around my neck is firm.
I'm 66 and had a problem with"Turkey Neck".
Sam from Tampa, FL
I've been using Perricone MD for about 6 months now and have noticed a big change in the look and feel of my neck. I don't think I'll ever stop using this product! Happy customer here!
I am completely committed to using Perricone products!
Maggie from Murrells Inlet, SC
I use several Perricone products daily both in the morning and overnight. My skin has never looked better. I am open to trying new products, especially makeup,
VERY fragrant. Not for faint of smell
ST from Connecticut
I want to like this product because of its reviews and for what it claims it helps BUT the overwhelming fragrance is so terrible!!! It does not smell fishy too me as others have stated, but very strong cologne/perfume smell. Sorry Perricone but you've got to fix this. Not sure how others tolerate it..
