Most Helpful Positive Review Perricone MD growth factor & lifting serum
Okay. So i will start by saying that om not really into this kind of skincare. I was super excited to try it out though. My first thoughts on the product were that i really love the bottle it comes in. It has a normal cap & a pump as well as a stopper for the pump so you dont lose any product which was nice. The consistency of the product is nice as well. It isnt too thick, and also isnt runny to the point of being obnoxious when you're trying to put it om your skin. It goes on really well and the dry down is pretty quick. It doesnt feel oily or gross like some face products in this genre can end up being like. The smell... Im not 100% sure what the smell is. I kinda have a love/hate with the smell. It smells good but it kind of reminds me of something my grandmother might wear at the same time. I definitely could have done with a lighter smell. Maybe flowery or fruity. It kind of smells like maybe.. Tea tree oil? It has a bit of an invigorating feeling to it when you first put it on. Like a cooling sensation at first then it goes into kind of a tingling. Nothing crazy and definitely nothing that should off put you from purchasing the product. Its nice & refreshing.
As far as the products actual effectiveness. I noticed that my skin felt like it had tightened up a bit. I noticed some brightening. I haven't yet noticed any kind of effect on any fine lines or wrinkles. But ive only been using it about a week or so.
Honestly, for the price (i looked it up and i think it reatiled for ~$129 for 2 fl oz) i personally would not purchase it. Aside from a very nice, high end moisturizer i haven't noticed enough of a difference to really say that it is a miracle product. Although i will say that i do love how it moisturizes & that it doesnt leave my skin feeling gross. Which like i said is HARD to find a lot of the time.
All in all, i didnt have any real complaints about the product itself except maybe the smell & i question the actual effectiveness of the product. But it FEELS like it might be tightening my skin. And my skin definitely feels smoother. So if you want an amazing over priced moisturizer & possible skin lifter i would recommend this. Otherwise. Perhaps try a cheaper one until you feel youve reached the end of the line.
Most Helpful Critical Review I don't hate it but I don't love it.
I've heard many great things about Dr Perricones skin care line. I'm a new user to frequent skin care - I've always done what I think of as the basics for my own personal skin care - which are daily and nightly facial moisturizers and using on Vaseline to remove makeup.
As of a couple years ago I've started to become concerned about fine line wrinkles and age lines. I don't have either near my eyes or mouth, it is more about my general concern of forehead lines and wrinkles. Because of this main concern, that is where I used this serum most frequently.
I have sensitive skin, especially around my mouth and eye area as well - therefore I wanted to steer away from using this product around these parts because of these ongoing concerns.
When I first received the serum, I took note of the bottle design, the products ingredients, recommended usage and the supposed benefits of usage.
Since this product contains retinol, I was curious as to whether it was safe to use often as I've read it's best to build up the use of retinol, especially since this product is encouraged to be used day and night. I know that retinol usage during the day has been known to make skin sensitive to sunlight. I follow Dr Perricones account on Instagram and a user had asked if it were safe to use during the day for these same reasons. The answer was yes because it does not contain large amounts.
I still for the sake of being careful, built up the use of the serum over the course of a week.
I started using the serum only at night on my forehead every other day. The next week, I used it every night and on the third week, I used the serum once in the day and once in the night.
The texture of this serum is creamy, has a yellow tint (which I attribute to the egg shell membrane it contains) and a light perfume scent. When it was applied to my skin, it isn't thick which I like, and it does absorb rather nicely. The consistency and texture are definitely preferable to me personally and I think that's what I liked best about the product.
Unfortunately, as far as results, I did not see any in the past month that I've been using this product. I've provided a couple of pics taken a month apart for reference.
However since this bottle contains a fair amount in it, I will continue to use the product until it is done to see if it ends up showing any results.
I did not have any reaction regarding skin irritation which is also important to me as I mentioned having sensitive skin. The only thing I was crazy about was the scent. Although it is light and pleasant, I will never understand the necessity of needing to add perfume to products. I would rather a skin care product smell like nothing than something perfumey. Again, this is a personal preference; I just personally wouldn't mind if it smelled like nothing.
My curiosity is leading me to continue to use this product because I do feel there is potential for results for long term use.
I will update my review if I see an improvement over more time.

very sensitive from ny
I use several products in the line and love them. this was too harsh for my sensitive skin. It became irritated and flaky. I'm sure its great for others but it didn't work for me.
Enjoying this product!
Marsha59 from East Berlin, PA
I love it when people think I am 20 years younger than I am. This product smells absolutely amazing I think I smell hints of rosemary which I love. It is pricey and I did buy when it had a major discount but, I would honestly purchase this again even without the discount.
I would buy it again

Growth Factor Serum
SkincareJunkie from Michigan
I love most of Perricone products, and this serum is no exception! I have only been using it for about a week but was able to notice a difference after the first night! The consistency and smell is wonderful, and the product does NOT pill with the rest of my skincare (which is one of my biggest pet peeves)! After the first night or 2 I noticed that my skin was already brighter, more supple, and glowing. I haven't used it long enough to see dramatic changes, but I am excited to see what this serum can do long term! I only removed a star because I do believe that this product is a bit overpriced... but if you can afford it, you won't regret it!
Love this product
Mary from Undisclosed
I USE THIS PRODUCT DAILY. IN THE MORNING AND IN THE EVENING. IT ALWAYS GIVES MY SKIN THAT EXTRA HELP FEELING SOME LIFT BEFORE I USE MY COLD PLASMA PLUS FACE.
Stumbled on this by accident.
Cheryl from Stockton, CA
I'm glad I accidently bought this mistaking it for another product I was replenishing. I LOVE this product. I use this product day and night. My skin LOVES it!
Yes I will buy again

This is the Best Overall Skin Product
Terri from Undisclosed
This is the best product for my skin that I have ever used. It has tightened and firmed my skin, evened my skin tone, lightened my melasma and sun spots, decreased oiliness, shrunk my pores, and provided light moisture. I'm totally amazed! I hope to never run out of it. Wish I had found this years ago..I use it twice a day..no other moisturizer needed for me!
Firm, even toned skin.
Jaclyn from Undisclosed
I have had such an incredible improvement in the firmness and tone to my skin since I started using the Growth Factor Firming and Lifting Serum. I bought a second bottle to make sure I don't run out!
This is great to use after MicroneedlIng
Kris from Smyrna, GA
I normally do MicroneedlIng every 3 weeks. I use most of the recommended products for aftercare. At the time I was unable to find a growth factor serum but was recommended to use one. I bought this product Becca it was close by and easy to pick up at a physical location. I have always experienced cell turn over with previous med spa treatments but this product took it to another level. Dead skin was sloughing off in chunks, revealing skin that was shiny, and smooth as glass. It really boosted the MicroneedlIng treatment I received and intensified the result dramatically. If you ever are going to get MicroneedlIng , or even considering getting it done, grab this product ASAP. I double wash my face, put this on, let it sink in then put a thick moisturizer on over it. If. I go outside, I let My growth factor serum syncing then my moisturizer and then I put sunscreen on top I hope this helps somebody or gives somebody guidance on how useful this product can be
Good eye serum!!

Helps crepey eye lids
Ceegee from Louisiana
I received a sample with a previous order. Wow! I placed an order for this and the fragile skin lotion and can't wIt to receive it. Next thing to break the piggy bank for is the Deep Crease serum, which I am eager to try. I use subD, cleanser, face firming moisturizer and love it all. I now have my sister hooked on it and she has started buying for her daughter and granddaughter to start them early on good skincare. The best makeup is good skincare. Perricone is it !!!
love the product hate the cost
jodig9 from Doniphan
I have lost a great deal of weight and have wrinkles and sagging skin. Recently bought the expensive high potency growth factor firming and lifting serum I have only used it 1 day so I have seen some improvements but will need to use it longer to honestly say if it works but it was expensive I didn't pay attention to it's over 100$ cost as I generally love everything I can afford to buy of this product line [product:perricone-high-potency-growth-factor-firming-&-lifting-serum]..

I would buy this again

So far it has helped tightening my skin.
Absolutely love this serum!!
drivingdaisy from Hillsboro, OR
I received this serum from Perricone MD in turn for an honest review. I first tried a small amount on my hand and I enjoyed the floral citrus scent along with how smooth my hand was after applying it. I tried it on my face next and I have sensitive skin and I had no problems using the serum. It does dry really quick once on your face so I recommend applying it right after washing your face while your skin is still damp. After applying I then use my moisturizer and finish with makeup. This serum doesn't affect applying makeup as some can cause it to cake or ball up. I have noticed a tremendous change in my skin. I am 52 years ago with good genes and I have found that this has really minimized fine lines as well as firmed my skin. Also an added benefit I found is that it is helping to slowly fade my recent acne scars. I also have not been breaking out either which has been awesome!! I will continue using this serum and appreciate the chance to be able to try it. I am a fan and will buy it once I finish this bottle.
Evens skin tone & hydrating 🙌🏽
lalafoxx_ from Conley, GA
One of my night time routine favorites! I received this @perriconemd firming and lifting serum from @influenster a few months ago and I'm loving it! At first I was a little thrown off cause when you initially apply it it's gritty but then it melts into your skin 😩Super hydrating & helps even you skin tone 🙌🏽 It also has a faint smell that took me some time to get use to. Kinda citrusy
Mandy from Birmingham, Al
I have used these products for awhile and love how they make my skin feel and look
My skin cleared so
raeannh2 from Jackson, NJ
My skin cleared so quickly after using this and my face never feels dry !!! I love this cleanser
I would definitely buy this product again.
Trish from Tennessee
Love this product, the way it smooths and firms my skin. I also use this on my lips. I have extremely dry chaped lips all year long. Just a little bit on my lips morning and night followed by my lip moisturizer and my lips are smooth and plump. My lip stick stays on much better.
Would buy again
Azlcb from Queen Creek, AZ
I use this in the morning before I apply my moisturizer with spf 30.
This is my second bottle
MOI from LOS ANGELES, CA
I love love this product!! You feel it working immediately, my skin instantly feels firmer and tighter. I apply it prior to my moisturizer. Also, a little goes along way. Totally worth the price and it lasted me about 5 months. It has some scent to it but, I personally don't mind it because it gets the job done and the scent is not unbearable and will fade away.
ShoeLady from Vernon, Fl
I use this twice a day. My skin appears firmer and softer. It feels grainy at first but as you smooth it on loses that texture.
Do I smell?
Stench from MN
I just got this and have used it three times. It feels fine, and I obviously don't see any differences yet... BUT the smell of this is terrible. It lingers on your face you smell it throughout the day. I am not one who is sensitive to product smells, if the product works, I will use it regardless. But, this is horrible. It made me question if something in my hair smelled because it lingered around on my face too long. It smells rancid and horrible. I've been wearing a ton of perfume to mask it because it's that offensive to me. I'll update the review if I feel the effectiveness of the product outweighs the smell. I don't typically review anything but this is just so stinky!
great serum for wrinkles
vanessad15bb from Sioux City, IA
This serum is great for preventing wrinkles. I have noticed that if makes my skin feel tighter and my smile lines have disappeared. Be careful applying this since it does aggravate the skin easily if you don't let your skincare product dry up on your skin before applying it.
