I have been using this product for just over 4 weeks and have noticed a transformation in my skin. Fine lines have softened, pores are much less visible and my overall complexion seems to look much healthier! If you're looking for results, give this one a try.
I'd heard of this brand from popular influencers before, but I'd never tried a high-end anti-aging product before, so I was excited to see if this would render any noticeable changes. I have a very simple skincare routine, so other products wouldn't interfere (or at least I don't think that they did) with the process. I have combination skin and on top of that it's sensitive which sometimes makes skincare a challenge. After using this product regularly in the AM and PM for a month, I don't see any noticeable differences. I don't have fine lines/wrinkles to begin with so I couldn't draw a comparison, and I didn't notice a difference in the skin texture or with my enlarged pores. Honestly, I think I look the same before I started versus after. What I did like though was the feel of the product. It absorbed quickly, to a sticky finish, which I assume was the firming aspect, and it did recommend following up with moisturizer right after so the face didn't feel that tight. It tingled only the slightest bit on my sensitive skin (not irritable at all), but the packaging said that was to be expected. Probably the biggest letdown was the scent. I expect certain skincare to smell a bit ... medicinal, but this smelled like ammonia, like the stuff in box perms and hair color. Even my husband commented on it, so it is was THAT pungent. If you're sensitive to scents especially on your face and it takes a while to dissipate, then this might not be for you. While it might work for others, it didn't wow me enough to want to purchase a bottle after using this one up.
I received the Perricone MD High Potency Classics Face Firming Serum complimentary to test and review.

It stung when I applied. Saw no changes to my skin after 30 days

I have used this product for a couple days, as prescribed. This morning I woke up with itching, redness, and huge hives all over my face. Will not use again.

I care more about performance than esthetics so I will continue to use, I will accept the strong odor if there is a good reason for it.

Perricone products work!

First, the smell is horrible. Second, it burned my skin immediately. I got it as a sample in a beauty box, and there was no warnings on it regarding skin sensitivity. Should have a warning regarding those with sensitive skin. I'm sure the fragrance in the product doesn't help. I have no clue why big companies with pricey merchandise still use fragrances or essential oils in their products. Skip it.
Clau from Texas
I use this product night and day. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and I can already see the difference. It does have a strong scent but once you see the results you won't mind it.

My skin has a lot going on- acne scars, enlarged pores, forehead wrinkles, and on top of all that- I've started to develop jowls and a turkey neck. Partially due to genetics, partially due to having 2 children in fairly short order, which led to me gain, then lose weight two times over. (I'm pregnant with number 3 right now.)
I could handle the enlarged pores and the scaring, I've had them for quite sometime and they've gotten better throughout the years. But the wrinkles and turkey neck really started to break me down. So, especially since I'll be 40 in three years, I've gotten into taking much better care of my skin. I'm pregnant, so I cannot use retinol or any form of vitamin A. It's fairly hard to find anti aging skin care that targets skin texture and wrinkles without retinol but this is a safe product according to my research. (Of course, if you're pregnant, do your own research and consult with your doctor.)
Back in the day, I used to sell Perricone, so I knew it was a good brand but it's usually out of my price range. When I saw that this was half off during Ulta's 21 days of Beauty, I thought now is time to try.
So glad I did! Within 3-4 days, the texture of my skin literally began to smooth out. And my pores, on which I'd usually do weekly extractions to get all the sebum out, have started to shrink! I did not think that would happen without seeing a medical esthetician.
It's also greatly helped the appearance of my turkey neck. It's not completely gone but much less noticeable to me. Granted, I'm in my third trimester, so everything is a bit puffy. However, my skin feels more firm and taunt. My wrinkles seem to be diminishing as well but not completely gone. It's only been 3 weeks though, so I'm sure they'll get better as well. It also has seemed to help with over all skin inflammation. (I tend to get red quite easily)
This morning when I glanced in the mirror, I thought for a hot second that I had forgotten to take off my makeup from the night before- my skin looked so nice and smooth it looked like I had foundation on!
Like I said, my skin isn't perfect but the improvement is noticeable and in my estimation, worth the cost.

The product is nice and firming but it smells terribly. Cannot get past the smell, thankfully other products work just as well as this.
Sharon from Undisclosed
I use this serum morning and night on my face and neck. I am impressed with the noticeably positive affect on my skin after about 3 weeks of use. I look forward to seeing how my skin looks after prolonged use. I have nothing negative to say about this serum.
Janice from Undisclosed
Use before my moisturizer. Keeps wrinkles and fine lines away.
Jess from Kansas
I got this product from Boxycharm several months ago. I am about half way through the bottle, and have started having a SEVERE reaction to it! My face is swollen, red, and SOOO ITCHY! When I put it on last night, it burned. This morning I looked like Will Smith in "Hitch" & remembered the "burning" from last night. I came to this website to check the reviews. Apparently, I am not alone with this reaction ☹️ I do not recommend this product, at least not if you get it in a monthly subscription box.
Irene from Denmark
I had exacly the same reaction as Sunny, who wrote a review 4 months ago - half way through the bottle severe iching started. I will not finishing the bottle either. I usually don't have allergic reactions and this is the first product that has created some.
kat from az
i used this product when it first came on the scene. i was pretty young, not worried about aging....back
then. eventually i moved on to other brands....but now that im seeing some wrinkling and sagging, ive gone back to using it faithfully. what a difference, in just a short period of time! even my husband noticed, and asked to me to show him how to use it!! he never uses anything on his skin. but he likes the feel of the serum...it sinks right into the skin. i will have to buy twice as much now!!
Anna from Denver
I had bad hormonal and cystic acne along my jawline and neck, in addition to numerous tiny bumps along my forehead and nose. I had tried several different kinds of acne cleanser, treatments and serums and nothing was making a difference. I went into an Ulta store to speak with a skincare expert and she recommended this. I was skeptical as I'm in my late 20's and was trying to treat acne, not wrinkles. She swore by this product so I gave it try. Within three weeks my skin began to clear up dramatically! By the fourth week, I had zero acne, smaller pores, smoother skin and my fine lines had reduced, as well. The only downside to this amazing product is the odor - it is potent!
Annie from Seaford, De
The product is light, applies easily, gets rid of wrinkles and keeps my skin healthy.
KTNAZ from AZ
This Serum does what it state = Firming! It is a staple for my daily use.
Crystal from Kingsport, Tennessee
This serum is fantastic! I don't have a lot of fine lines and wrinkles (just around my eyes and slightly around my lips). But I HAVE noticed a difference in them. I have also had a dramatic improvement in my skin texture and firmness. The only thing that I dislike about the serum; IS THE SMELL! Pewww! It smells exactly like 🐟! It goes away fairly quickly; but if you are sensitive to fragrance? You will NOT like this. I love the results so I put up with it.
I do have a question for Perricone MD customer service though. I have recently started Curology(the website that prescribes a certain routine for your particular skin needs). My serum contains 0.035 % Tretinoin, 4% Niacinamide, and 2% Tranexamic. Is it safe to use this serum along with the face firming? I do not want to discontinue use; however I want to use the Curology one as well. IF I alternate days would that suffice IF they cannot be used together? I love your products and I look forward to hearing from you.
SK from Boise ID
I use daily in the morning after I wash my face. It is a wonderful cream serum. I have used this product for years and my skin is lovely.
Kali from Colorado
This firming serum has worked wonders as far as lifting and plumping for the face. However for the price I feel like I can get something else that will do just the same job at a more affordable rates. It does have a unique smell so if you're OK with smells on your face not fragrances then this is a really great serum to use
Jenn from Toledo, Ohio
Love the way the product feels on my skin. Skin feels and looks great!
Jen from Johnson City TN
I bought this to change up from my Estee Lauder routine and I have to say this stuff is amazing and Iv have great results. I plan on re purchasing again.
Pepper from Arizona
I feel the product does work by the comments I have received by people who cannot believe my age.
I have been told I look 10 years younger!

This serum is very effective and truly works best with your favorite perricone moisturizer.
Sunny from Denver, CO
I was applying Face Firming Serum to my face nightly followed by Perricone's Face Finishing & Firming Moisturizer. Halfway through the bottle of serum, I had a pretty severe reaction. Like the other reviewers who have posted skin irritation problems, my face started itching in the middle of the night and I woke up to raised red welts and overall redness to my face and neck. After a week, I went to my dermatologist ($$$) who prescribed a topical cream to get the redness and welts under control. My skin is not sensitive, and it's strange that it reacted at all but in particular, halfway through the bottle and not immediately. Perhaps someone at Perricone could address this issue. Thank you. p.s. I've had no problems with the moisturizer and am on my second jar. Although, after my reaction to the serum, I won't be finishing it.

So I bought my mother this past christmas the Perricone MD fx set. Since she has been taking care of my grandfather full time she really hadn't had time to herself anymore. Buying this product has changed everything for her! By the first week I saw her face become more balanced in color and fine lines and wrinkles diminish around her eyes mostly and mouth. When family and friends started to notice man! Her happiness and pride in herself (which I haven't seen in awhile) has came shining through again which I am so happy for, she even started wearing make up again!! I can't thank these products enough! I'm not saying it's a miracle product. But it is very fast acting and effective product!
