Most Helpful Positive Review I held off as
I held off as long as I could on giving my review. Almost daily I've gone back and forth on how I feel about this elixir. I think one thing it's important to understand in regards to my skin and how this has worked for me is that I have Lupus, I am very heat and sun sensitive. Mere minutes outside can make my face and skin bright red, sometimes the effects from the briefest exposure can even last for days. Being the middle of summer of course that makes it more difficult. Had I tried this in winter I probably would have had an easier time deciding my feelings on this. I will say I gave up almost immediately on "splashing" as a way of delivery and quickly started using cotton pads. Just enough to add a light layer to my face and neck. The formula is light, feels slightly soapy but doesn't bubble, and best of all no smell! Please save me from skincare for sensitive skin that reeks to high heaven! Fragrance is a top irritant and I love that Perricone MD figured that out! As for results there are days I am awed by how even and smooth my skin looks and days I feel I look worse. I do think that this product is probably the most effective when used within the rest of the line. Adding the moisturizer or cleanser would certainly accelerate the benefits. What I can say I have for sure noticed is a huge improvement in a hyperpigmentation spot on my cheek. This almost dime size spot popped up on my cheek about 5 months ago. Very dark brown. And on my lighter skin, very noticeable. While I probably should have been looking for a lightening formula of some sort I never did. Now the spot is about 4-5 shades darker than my skin than about the 10 times darker it was a month ago. Will cover easily now with concealer when I apply makeup, it still peeked through before. even with concealer, foundation and powder. Would absolutely agree it's amazing for the skin tone and evenness! I'm giving this 4 stars because I'm still very unsure on some things. Plus I feel the delivery method could be improved. "Splashing" only makes a mess of my hair and bathroom and wastes product. I'll definitely continue using it and if with passing time it earns 5 stars I'll be back to revise! Would I reccomend it. Absolutely. I think for people with less complicated skin issues this would probably be a 5 star product for sure but would also reccomend they check out the whole line, use it within the system and I think you would see amazing results. As always Influenster Thank you so much for including me in this voxbox. And I definitely have a new found appreciation for Perriconemd and the use of CBD in skincare products.
Most Helpful Critical Review My initial thoughts of
My initial thoughts of the Perricone MD Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Skin Therapy Rebalancing Elixir. First off, this is an essence all day every day no matter now you cut it, I don't know why western brands feel the need to stay away from the term, making up terms like "elixir" just confuses people and then they don't know where it fits into their routine. Just call it what it is, an essence. Ok, rant over. This product is supposed to be soothing and "rebalancing" helping with redness, irritation, hydration, texture and tone. It has the latest buzz ingredient CBD which has been marketed as soothing. What I think the Star ingredients should be is the variety of mushrooms there have in here, which have a much longer history of soothing and providing antioxidants. And as it's made for sensitive skin is is free of most potential allergens, fragrance, parabens, silicones and all those other ingredients people seem to be avoiding like the plague lately. I have combo reactive skin and rosacea so I'm a great tester for this. It has been soothing and has not given me any reactions nor made my redness worse. I will say this is nowhere near as hydrating as I was expecting and my skin did not feel anywhere as hydrated as it would with another basic essence or toner. It sinks in fast but left a very faint stickiness which is fine since I apply other skincare on top. This reminds me of a lighter less hydrating version of the Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief. If you are very dry I'm not positive you would like this as an essence, but if you are not concerned about this step adding a lot of hydration then you would be fine. Overall I'll keep using this product and will update everyone in my review to see if there was any long term reduction in redness or sensitivity.

I wasn't sure about this product when I received it. After using it for a couple of days I was hooked. My skin tends to be on the normal to dry side. After washing my face, I put two shakes of the elixir on my palms and rubbed them together then pressed it onto my face and neck. It is very cooling and refreshing. It absorbs into the skin very quickly. I found I didn't need to follow with a moisturizer. My skin felt hydrated and the feeling lasted throughout the day. It also seemed to help even out my skin tone reducing some redness I live in Florida where the humidity plays havoc with my makeup. Moisturizers can feel really heavy on my face. I think this will be a great alternative for hydration in the summer. I would definitely recommend this product and based on how good the elixir is, I will probably try the cleanser and the other items in this hypoallergenic CBD skin therapy line. I received a complimentary bottle of the elixir in exchange for my honest review.
leslien6427 from Doylestown, PA
I wanted to love this product and was excited to receive it complimentary for testing purposes. Unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. The application method is odd and I hated the bottle/pour method of getting the product out and never did find a way not to make a bit of a mess. I have used Perricone before (several products) and I always really liked them. Maybe if I had used this as part of the product regimine I would have liked it better but as a standalone, I would not purchase. For the record it does seem to be a quality product but it didn't really seem to make a difference in my skin at all.
randic79c2 from Sammamish , WA
This product is amazing. It has no smell. Light feeling. I use after washing my face and before moisturizer. I have sensitive skin. This feels wonderful on my skin. I've never used CBD products before. I'm amazed! It's moisturizing. It balances skin out. Try it! You won't regret it!
Soothing and Nourishing
kscohen from Spencer, WV
This essences or elixir as they call it is really lovely. It feels fresh on the skin and lives a nice balanced feel. I definitely recommend this.
I absolutely love this
srtc1971 from Ridge Spring, SC
I absolutely love this product I received it in my Vox Box it is awesome it really does help! I use it in the morning and before going to bed! Will definitely be buying more of this product!
Nice but not holy grail
maryjaner from San Diego , CA
The rebalancing elixir is a nice lightweight liquid that does a nice job moisturizing. I do not think of reduced my redness but it provided hydration. It doesn't have a smell and did not irritate my skin. That being said it didn't do anything special for me. Probably could not purchase again.
starnsky from Bethel Park, PA
This is the first Perricone MD product￼ I've ever tried and I must say I'm impressed. The elixir is perfect to use as an essence and fit into my morning skincare routine fantastically. This was also my first time using a product with CBD in it and I like the results. The elixir itself is nice and lightweight and my dehydrated skin just drinks it up. I've used this for over a month now and notice a decrease in redness overall. The CBD seems to calm my temperamental skin down and my success of the elixir itself has gotten me to try other moisturizers from Perricone MD which are very nourishing. The price is a little steep, but the quality is there and I have almost a full bottle left after using it daily. Overall, I'm very pleased with this product.
Nkoliveira from Melbourne, Fl
I received this product from Influenster to review and boy and I happy they chose me!! I've been using this Rebalancing Elixir for about a two months, give or take. I feel like my skin is starting to look less red on my cheeks. I have been very consistent, using it morning and everything. My face feels very soothed and comfortable afterwards. There is no smell. The texture is watery and I'm really starting to like putting it on with my hands as the directions indicate (that was weird to me at first). The formula is gentle on my highly sensitive skin. Again, I don't see as much redness on my face but I haven't notice a difference in my skin's texture and brightness yet. I am thrilled with the vegan ingredients and I LOVE using a product with CBD. The packaging is absolutely beautiful and can be recycled. This is a small business who puts a lot a thought and research into each product they develop. I love supporting small businesses, especially ones that are health and earth mindful.
I did not want to like it but I love it..❤❤
janelles0486 from Garden Grove, CA
To start it is free of the 26 know allergens as well as fragrance. Everything these days has cbd in it and I did not want to like it but I love it. It did rebalance dry areas of my skin. Application could not be easier just toss a little on your finger tips then on face. Let it dry and soak in. I keep my regular daily skin regiment. I would highly reccomend you go out and purchase for yourself and try it
tammys23b8 from Culpeper, VA
I received the Perricone MD rebalancing elixir as a free gift to sample. I have been using it for about 3 weeks daily and it has made my skin softer and reduced the redness. I feel that it is smoother as well. I don't think it has much of a smell at all, which is a plus for me. It is in a glass bottle and I would rather have plastic. I would definitely buy this again.
Elixir of life?
triwill from Bremerton, WA
I've always heard great things about Perricone products and was very excited to try this line. When I opened the box I'll admit I was disappointed because it was one item and not the set. Granted, it was a full size Elixir so I really appreciated it but if we're going to truly give a product line a fair assessment, I feel like we need most of the products to see how they work together. That being said, I have plenty of other products to try with it so I knew I'd get a fair run with this! First of all, the packaging is lovely and clean, easy to read and understand. I wasn't sure exactly what this was going to be but reading the simple directions made it very understandable. This Elixir is a light, water like consistency product and it has a lovely light scent. It has the shaker top so it won't give you too much product in your hand. You need very little of it - and all you do is put a couple of shakes into your hands and then lightly apply to your clean, washed face. I barely felt anything on my skin but in no way was it dry or oily. My skin still felt clean and refreshed and had zero reaction like some products do. No redness, no stinging, etc - within a minute I was able to jump to my next step of skin prep for my makeup. I use a multitude of brands of serums with hydrolairic acid which went right over it beautifully. My regular moisturizer went on right over that as well. ￼During the heat of summer I noticed that I was sweating the products off but now that fall is upon us this elixir has no problems. Over the last 4 weeks I have noticed that my skin is definitely clearer, brighter and smoother! I definitely like this product and would love to see if the other items in this line would make its performance even better! Thanks to #influenster and #Perricone for giving me the chance to try this amazing product!
divakitten from Rosemount , MN
Honestly, I was unable to use this product. I am allergic to mushrooms and this has mushroom essence in it as one if it's main ingredients. I was really excited to try it, but when I read that, it was a big disappointment. It looks like a really promising product! Unfortunately, I was not willing to risk an allergic reaction to try this!
taryntx from Bowie, TX
I have sensitive skin so this was perfect for me. It left my face feeling soft and smooth with no break outs. My daughter loved it as well. It helped with chaffing from wearing a mask at work for her. She ended up taking my bottle.
thejennynicole from Unionville, IN
I like to Wait to do very last moment to review these products because I want to really make sure they work or not. And you won't be able to tell after just a week. Are usually don't like this kind of product but I will say it has really helped with my redness on my face. So much so... I will probably purchase on my own when this one is done. The bottle makes it feel very expensive and it doesn't have an offensive smell.
Perricone MD A new chapter
ambrosiasalad from Laporte, IN
Perricone MD is fantastic for sensitive skin. Not only did it do what it promised, it did more. My daughter and I tried this out for a month and it cleared up her preteen skin it cleared up my 41 year old acne. It brightened both of our complexions and I have already purchased bottles for the both of us!! Thank you Influenster for introducing us to this incredible product!!
kimlb065 from Melville, NY
This product is very soothing. It calms down irritated skin. My skin feels smoother,looks brighter and feels nicely hydrated. It has a pleasant smell and nice texture. A little goes a long way. I would recommend and buy this product.
karrieb from Eastvale, CA
First time user . This is so nice. Very soothing. It evens out my skin tone, gets rid of redness and leaves my skins feeling cool and refreshed!
tanyaf2 from Cut Off , LA
The toner felt really good and soothing when applied to the skin. I didn't notice any smells. The bottle is a nice sized bottle and you get a good amount of product. As far as actually doing anything for my skin, I didn't notice a difference at all. Like I said, felt soothing but didn't notice that it actually did anything like it stated it would. Was very excited about trying a cbd product on my face but unfortunately it did nothing. I would not buy or recommend this product.
Surprisingly great! "I didn't want to like it, but.."
pamelap49e8 from Pitman, NJ
I waited to do this review so I allowed time to use the product consistently. That said, I really didn't want to like it, seems there's CBD in Everything now. However, I have truly fallen for it! At first, I instantly noticed a calming of sensitive areas and skin texture. After time, it only got got better. I noticed skin changes the product didn't even make claims for. Literally did rebalance-dry areas were the same as the rest, redness was turned to pink rosy cheeks, without any little facial bumps. Application couldn't be easier, toss a little on fingertips, then on face. Don't worry if it feels a little sticky at first. That fades right off in a few seconds (let it dry/soak in). I kept my regular skin care and used this instead of my toner.
Pleasant but nothing remarkable
rktkck from Escondido, CA
This serum is a generous size with a slightly more viscous than wanted texture. It layers beautifully with other skincare and is great under makeup. The packaging has a substantial feel and product dispenses easily into your hand without wasting product or making a mess. As far as efficacy though, I didn't notice that it did anything other than hydrate. I use tretinoin and hydroquinone for melasma, and my skin can get a little flaky through my t zone if I'm not super gentle with my skin. I didn't notice any improvement with that issue while using this for the past few weeks.
Effectivr with Amazing Ingredients!
lesliebfb91 from DALLAS, TX
I love this! I have somewhat sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin. This product has been so soothing on my skin after cleansing and before the rest of my skincare. It feels like my moisturizer absorbs more effectively after using this and my skin is less red. The ingredients are so clean and I don't have to worry about irritants or toxic ingredients. Although I received this free from Influenster for review, I will definitely repurchase.

I received the Perricone MD Hypoallergenic CBD skin therapy Rebalancing Elixir for testing. My skin appears to be calmer, clearer and definitely refreshed after using this product. I will continue to use and update. So far I'm liking it.
shalyserenee from Sandy, UT
I'm a huge fan on CBD skincare. However, I was skeptical about this product as I don't have sensitive skin. However, it has truly been skin changing. Like everyone rn, mask-ne is a major concern as I'm in school for 12+ hrs a day. I had been throwing drying acne products at it. Once laying off the acne formulas and switching to this essence, my skin is so much happier. I think it does an amazing job at resetting the skin. I highly recommend & will repurchase.

this product is amazing! my skin has gotten so soft and even since I started using it. and it has so many uses! you can use it all over your body as a wash, or as a toner for your face. I would definitely recommend to anyone!
Felt nice and calmed my skin.
michellef27 from Runnemede, NJ
This product did exactly what it promised. It soothes my skin. The texture and smell are amazing. It does not feel slimy or watery. It helped smooth and calm my skin especially in my chin area. I wear a mask or at least 12 hours a day working in a hospital. It feels amazing to use this on my skin as soon as I get home. Great product.
