    My must have everyday! When you get to a certain age (over 60) it is hard to find one cream, treatment, moisturizer that does it all, and Perricone High Potency Face Firming Activator is that one product for me. It brings youth back to my face!

        Comments about Perricone MD High Potency Face Firming Activator:

        I've used this serum for two months and I have seen no positive result. To be honest, after years of working for plastic surgeons, I don't believe any skincare product that says it will firm my skin. It's not physically possible to achieve the tightening effect that the word "firming" makes me hope for. That said, I expect smoother texture and a more even skin tone. A slightly more supple, "plumped" feel is a bonus. I've gotten those results with serums at higher and lower price points.

        The serum has an unpleasantly strong herbal/essential oil scent, but it fades quickly, so that wasn't a barrier to using it. It takes a couple minutes to dry before I can apply a moisturizer. That's okay too. It didn' make me break out.

        I don't want to be one of those women who just says something vague about a product not working, but that's the extent of it: no better, no worse. With the amazingly effective ingredients available today and the cachet of the Perricone brand, that is not good enough. I put in the money, the time and the hope for a realistic improvement that isn't easy to achieve but is possible. It didn't deliver on any promise. I'm a completionist so I'll finish it, but I will not buy it again.

            This product is the first one I put on morning and night. It is lightweight yet does so much. Firms my face and softens my complexion . You can add many products over it and it will activate all other ingredients.

                      I am 48 years old and I have been searching for SOMETHING to keep my face and eyes from becoming loose and wrinkly. I have tried a number of over the counter products over the years like Olay,roc,Lancôme,and the most recent was Vichy. Vichy was ok but not as affective like this one. I have been using this high potency face firming activator for about a week now ,we'll let me tell you that from the very fist touch of this product on my face was an instant firming affect.i was amazed on how highly potent this is.soon after applying I did feel a little tingling which the instruction to say,and I applied the face finishing cream it help the tingling stop and my face felt good immediately. I can still feel my face firming up but in a good way ,I've never felt this affect from any product so yes I will continue using this,I finally have peace of mind getting older now and I do have a lot of faith in using it.the only thing is that you must use the finishing moisturizer soon after applying.it is pricy ,but well worth it.thank you perricone!!!!!!!

                        I have been using High Potency Face Firming Activator (it called back then Formula15) ever since I was introduced to Perricone MD April 2014. From day one I could see the change. I was 45 and looked old (usually i look 25, so it was a real blow and needed a quick change): my face started going down, pigmentation everywhere...in less than a month, my face was on its way back to the way it was. I am using Perricone MD cleanser, firmer cold plasma (currently moved to Cold Plasma plus) and then High Potency Face Firming Activator Always finish with Photo Plasma morning or Face Finishing Moisturizer at night. High Potency Face Firming Activator - smells great, well absorbed and does the work - keep my face moisturized, helps a great deal with lowering pigmentation and acne level - Highly recommended
