When I first began to use this product, I had given up on just about everything from high end to low end priced products and their claims to do "this or that" for my skin. My skin is oily to combination and have had a difficult time finding just the right day time moisturizer that would work well with my skin. As soon as, I applied one of those "other" day time moisturizers onto my face, the product felt thick, shinny, like it would just sit there on top of my skin and within minutes the product would begin to "melt" on my face instead of absorb into my skin.
Dr.Perricone's Face Finishing Moisturizer is a moisturizer that applies smoothly onto my skin, as it absorbs evenly into my skin. A small amount of moisturizer is applied all over my face (and neck) for day time moisturizing achieving a positive outcome on the overall appearance of my skin.
Once applied, my skin tone looks even, pores appear smaller, lines have lessened and I love the soft feel of my skin after using this product. I no longer have to be concerned about my day time moisturizer "melting off my face" as this product smoothly absorbs into the skin, leaving a fresh glowing appearance.
I feel, with my continued use, my skin looks smoother, softer and better than before I used this product. I have used other Dr.Perricone products, which I am pleased with their outcome, along with this "Face Finishing Moisturizing Cream." For night time I use, "Concentrated Restroative Cream" and my daily serum is, "Advanced Face Firming Activator".
I absolutely love Perricone MD. For example the sample pack of Cold Plasma (despite a full sized portion being beyond my price range unless sold in a set) turned out to be, after approximately a week's worth of applications, the Holy Grail of serious skincare. The Face Firming Activator was my first experience with the brand and, again, I was in love with the results - literally firmer yet somehow dewy skin. The Acyl-Glutathione is yet another stellar (pricey but worth it) product. A chance to regain a satisfying degree of ones youthful appearance is virtually guaranteed if you stick with these precious products. Unfortunately, my experience with the Face Finishing Moisturizer came in no way close to the success I found with the above mentioned rejuvenating examples. I know this is a very popular moisturizer, but for those of us with dry skin and occasional bouts of rosacea, this may not be the skin solution for you. I was surprised to be met with drier skin throughout the day and finally realized that reappyling the Finishing moisturizer was only making matters worse (a few red blotchy rosacea breakouts finally convinced me to put the bottle down and cut my losses). Of course this may have been an isolated incident, but if you happen to have dry sensitive skin like mine, I would look into some of the other wonderful alternatives found in the world of Perricone MD. Nothing, certainly not one unsuited moisturizer, could sway me from my loyalty to the profound respect I have for Perricone's creations.

Gave it 30 days and saw no benefits. Didn't like the smell
Jo from San Diego
this is my favorite favorite moisturizer hands down I use it every day. after I wash my face with the high potency classic face wash I re wet my face and neck with cold water and then I put a small amount of this moisturizer on my finger and pat it all over. it's great because it absorbs better this way and a little goes a long way. I highly recommend this stuff. it is expensive but it's worth it and I'm always miserable when I run out because there truly isn't a substitute.
Brydie from Illinois
Nice moisturizer. It hydrates well and sinks in fast enough to put make-up on over it. It's expensive and so I probably wouldn't buy unless it was on sale but if you have the money it is a good buy.
susie from NY
I've been using this after the serum and my skin has been very happy. Its lightweight enough that I will be able to use it in the warmer months.
Dipset from Galloway nj
I love everything about it- I used philosophy moisturizer forever but it wasn't doing it for me anymore. This makes my skin look great and feels lightweight. I got complaints on my skin immediately. The smell is just a bonus!
Sherry from Texas
Works as a moisturizer. Smell is unpleasant.
Jo from Texas
I love this product and will buy again!
Kels from Philly, PA
I use this every morning. It tingles/burns when you first apply it but it goes away relatively quickly, and my face does look much smoother! If you have dry skin like me, you may want to use another lotion or moisturizer on top because while I do love this stuff, it doesn't provide as much moisture as my skin needs. But for fine line reduction it really does work!!
Joanie from Michigan
A great lightly natural tinted day lotion to give you a natural glow. I then use a little concealer over areas where I need more coverage.
Donna from Poplar Grove, IL
I have been using this product for over a year. Hydrates instantly and makes my face feel fantastic. I always try to buy it at Ulta when it is on special.
Spooky from Texas
Literally my favorite moisturizer for YEARS. Make my skin super soft and moisturized
Nicole B from Destin, FL
I've always had skin on the dry side, and had a routine with a cheaper moisturizer that was keeping my face from getting dry, but switched to this as recommended for its firming properties.
As previous reviews have stated, it does have a strong scent, but that doesn't bother me. There's also a light tingling when I put it on, others have described as burning, but that also wouldn't bother me if the product was actually working.
I've been using this religiously, twice a day for two weeks to give it a chance to work, and I have a HUGE dry patch that's come up after using this product for the two weeks.
Definitely don't recommend this product if you have actual concerns about dry skin.
Rosie from Texas
I purchased this during the sale, I regret it. The girl said this brand was SO good and maybe it is but this cream specifically did not agree with my skin. It took a bit to get past the scent, but then it burned my skin on application. I thought maybe it was just first application but it did it again the second time and my skin did not feel moisturized. I will be returning.
ROCBLUE from Atlanta, GA
I knew upon opening the product that it was way too fragrant for my liking. I ended up giving it a try anyway, hoping it the rose scent would fade. I wish I hadn't. I smelled it all night...the smell is still on my pillow case. A very matronly scent. No thank you.
Melissa from Castle Rock, CO
I was excited to try this product but couldn't get past the smell. So happy I was able to return it.
shannon from Phoenix
my face burns. Husband told me my face was red. Thought at first cold weather then realized its red every time I use this. the smell is a little overwhelming but fades in time. unfortunately I will be returning it due to burning and redness
Julie from Michigan
I use this product after cleaning my face and love how it makes my skin feel. I notice it working right away
KKristine from Asheville, NC
I'm sure this may work for someone who doesn't have sensitivities to fragrance but I am not that person. Though the after result seems to be okay, it burns when I apply it. The fragrance is so strong that it's almost as if someone dumped a bottle of my Grandmas perfume into a moisturizer. I would not recommend this for someone who has sensitive skin or any type of reactions to fragrances.
Nini from LB
I want to love this but it burns my skin when I put it on.
Best Nana from Tempe, AZ
Use it daily, in the morning!
Amy Lea from Florida
Okay, the ONLY drawback to this product is the price. Wait for the half off sale and stock up. I will use this for the rest of my life. It smells AMAZING! The perfect rose scent, it's pretty thick and makes my skin feel velvety. Since it is so pricey, I only use this at night and I am LOVING how smooth and supple my skin looks in the AM. After cleansing, I apply this first with an emphasis on my eye area and jaw/neck, I let it sit for 5 and then follow it up with a DermaE anti-wrinkle moisturizer and that combo is doing wonders for me.
Just a note, I am suffering from some mild "mask-ne" right now and this product doesn't do anything to prevent breakouts, which it doesn't claim to. My acne looks smaller and smoother the morning after though.
Natalie from California
I've only been using this for a week and a half but I love this moisturizer so far! It's light and my pores feel like they can "breathe". It's very hydrating throughout the entire day and smells like very subtle roses.
A from ID
I like the way my skin felt in the morning after using this cream before bed. However, it made my skin burn slightly after application. The deal breaker was the overwhelming floral (rose) fragrance. It smelled like something from my grandma's vanity. I will be returning due to the scent, yuck!
Ash from ID
I love the way this felt in my face. However, I am returning due to the overwhelming floral scent. Nasty.
Codylynne from West Jordan, UT
I only used it once and I could see my face looking better. It works great. It doesn't stink, but it's got a heavy floral scent that triggered my asthma. I have to return it. If you aren't sensitive to scents I'd recommend it. If you are be ware. I would love to see the long term effects.
