    Comments about Perricone MD High Potency Face Firming Activator:

    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!!!!!!!

      Comments about Perricone MD High Potency Face Firming Activator:

      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

          I had some deep bumps on my cheeks and fairly large pores, I was starting to see lines on my forehead and my skin was overall dull. At first use my skin started to become more radiant! Over a few weeks my pores appeared smaller and my skin texture was smoother! It has made the bumps on my cheeks disappear and the lines on my forehead are much smoother! I will not go a Day with out this product! I use it every day before I leave the house!!!

              You will not regret this purchase. I have been using for a couple of years ... people think I am still in my late 40's. I think it lifts my skin up around the mouth and jaw bone. Plus, my wrinkles are softened. I use with cold plasma ... I also make sure to use on my neck.

              Comments about Perricone MD High Potency Face Firming Activator:

              It's always a surprise which products are going to stink and which aren't. I got this High Potency Face Firming Activator on a GMA promo for a good price. I hadn't tried it before and anything that might help firming for me is desirable. The first few times I used it, I kept smelling something sort of like garbage or like skunky body odor. I was horrified that maybe it was my armpits. But no. It was my face. I've tried using a more fragranced moisturizer over it but it just leaches through. And if I'm in the sun for even an instant, it really amps up the smell! It hasn't shown me any tremendous benefits so I won't subject myself to the smell again. I have noticed my pores are much smaller. My wrinkles may be too advanced for any real noticeable difference. I did notice a tiny improvement in firmness of my dreaded waddle. It does make my neck skin incredibly smooth - if only it could dissolve turkey neck LOL
              I think it's a decent enough product for finer lines. If you want to minimize pores it seems to work on those. If you can ignore the smell, then I think it's worth a try.

              This product does wonders smoothing out fine lines as well as my deeper laugh lines. Quantity needed is surprising small (petite pea size) and covers all my targeted areas. There is a bit of a stinging sensation when you first apply but goes away quickly. I feel as if my overall appearance is refreshed and more taut. Lovely product
