Rated 4.46 out of 5 stars
I really wanted to give this product a little time to prove itself and has it!
I've been using this moisturizer for over 3 weeks now and here are the results so far.
My skin is firmer and the texture is smoother and this product gives me all around fabulous skin. I am even using this as a neck cream.
For some background, I am 48 years old and have never really had great skin. I've dealt with occasional redness, occasional breakouts, extremely oily skin in hot weather and dry flakey skin in the winter, large pores, etc. Needless to say I've tried more products than I can remember. Up until trying Perricone MD Rejuvenating Moisturizer my prior routine was:
The Deep Cleanse -Tattier
Essential Power Toner - Laneige
Truth Serum _ Olehenriksen
The Water Cream (AM) or The Slik Cream (PM) - Tatcha
Concentrated Eye Cream -DHC
Various Neck Creams
To really test this product out, I dropped all face, eye and neck creams and replaced them with Perricone MD Rejuvenating Moisturizer for the past 3 weeks. My makeup goes on effortlessly and I'm using less of it. The fine lines around my eyes and mouth have been diminished and the deep lines along my forehead are softened. The skin on my neck has improved so much, no more crepey skin and although I still have some lines, they are so much less and the ones I have are softer In appearance, My skin tone has improved greatly as well. I really love this product and have every intention of replacing my other moisturizers with this one. It is amazing!
The only complaint I have is the heavy floral scent. Personally I don't mind scented products but this one is very strong so keep that in mind if you are very sensitive to that. Even for me, I find it incredibly strong and the scent seems to linger for quite a while. I haven't had any break outs since using this product but I have moderately sensitive skin not extremely.
I received this product from #Influenster in exchange for an honest review.
The Rejuvenating Moisturizer felt like a wonderfully expensive satin gliding across my freshly-washed face. That I can't deny. It felt DIVINE being applied although it never fully penetrated my skin. By morning my face was very smooth looking but it had a slightly "tacky" feeling to it. I chalked it up to moving around in my pillow.
I tried it as a daytime moisturizer and again found it to be too greasy to fully penetrate and leave my skin smooth but not "slick". Even my foundation didn't want to adhere to my skin. The next day I tried a smaller amount...still too greasy.
For the next week-and-a-half I went sans makeup and used the moisturizer only - day and night. My skin was noticeably smoother with less fine lines but I also started having breakouts (I'm assuming from the greasy consistency) which isn't normal for me. Enough was enough. Walking around with a shiny face that I had to blot all day AND new breakouts is not worth a few less fine lines OR the pricetag OR not being able to wear makeup when I want to.
Also, the fragrance was a bit overpowering and I was taken aback by it. It wasn't a scent that I would use for a nightime moisturizer - not subtle at all. And for day, it would clash with any perfume that wasn't citrus based. It's a nice scent, but it's just TOO STRONG.
I'll pass on this one.
I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

I got it as a sample and it felt great. I would use it on the daily if it wasn't out of my price range.
Didn't sit on the skin, or have a strong odor

I started using this about 3 months ago and I ran out last week.. Let me tell you, I noticed a difference. This makes my skin so smooth and plump. I don't care about the smell, it's not like you're going to smell it all day. if it works idc. I will not go without this or my Dr Brandt DNA. 🤌🏼

I received this as part of a subscription box but will most definitely continue to buy it. It smells great, smooths and softens my skin and has noticeably reduced the wrinkles on my neck and face! It's absolutely worth the price!
CS from The World
When I want to feel like Joan Collins as Alexis on Dynasty, I use this. To me, the scent and feel are like 1980s Leona Helmsley, Ivana Trump and Nancy Reagan. Smells like over the top glamour and money. Like walking through Nieman Marcus just before Christmas in 1983.
You know how guys will buy the muscle cars of their teenaged years when they are 55? This is the equivalent for women who were in high school during the Reagan years. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you aren't the right demographic. Go get a $15 vegan face cream that doesn't defoliate the rainforest.
I buy it just for the scent.
Rafabella from SC
I LOVE this moisturizer more than I can say... it feels just luscious on my face. Also, I'd like to say that not every product is for everyone. There are several reviews suggesting the fragrance for this product is bad. I do not agree at all. I love the smell, and in my opinion, it smells very herbal... not chemical.
Anyway for those of us who love it, please keep it around... it's truly a fabulous product!
Britt from Cali
Only bought this Bc it contains glutathione. But it is wayy too heavily fragranced.smells like grandma perfume . Two stars because it wasn't a bad moisturizer but it was just too smelly for me . I probably won't purchase anything from this brand anymore. It's also very expensive so I'm glad I got it on sale and used my points for it .

I received this cream in a kit and was very pleased with it's performance. I do need to add additional light oil because it's not quite moisturizing enough on it's own during the winter, but I'm okay with that. I already have several different creams in my rotation, and would like to finish them first, but will be purchasing this once my "inventory" needs to be replenished. BTW - while not nearly as concentrated, I think the vmcream is a good way to get some of the benefits of the much more expensive Deep Crease Serum, as the active ingredient is the same. Using both would be ideal, though.

If you are at all sensitive to fragrances, don't buy this product. I'm thankful I only had a sample size.
Fuzzy from Spokane, WA
Definitely not worth the price. It's got a strong smell and smells like old lady perfume. It left my normal/dry combo skin greasy within a few hours. Didn't see any difference in my skins moisture. Not worth the price when there are hundreds of products for cheaper that do a better job of moisturizing without leaving you greasy.
Magumom from Perrysburg, OH
I first tried this cream when I received it in my FabFitFun box and after a couple uses, I hunted it down to find out where to purchase more. The scent is absolute heaven to me. I literally smile every time I open it! Not to mention it goes on so smoothly and easily, very lightweight, and absorbs quickly. It was a big help last winter (NW Ohio) when my skin normally gets really dry. I use it as a night cream. My (40 year old) face is definitely smoother and brighter and I don't feel like I'm sliming my pillow when I go to bed. I will definitely keep using it, probably my favorite skin product ever :)

Got this as a gift. Was previously using oil of Olay. Goes a long way
JenG51 from Birmingham, AL
The product feels smooth and rich on the skin; however, the fragrance is overwhelming to me as a person with sensitivity to perfumes. It's a heavy and strong perfume that does not dissipate. That makes this expensive product unusable for me.
Laura from Austin, TX
I love this stuff. Have only used a few times but I think it has made my skin look and feel better after only a few uses. Some people say they couldn't stand the smell but I LOVED the smell! You don't smell it at all once it is on.
La from Batimore
I have very picky skin, and have tried many, many, many varieties of moisturizer, from drugstore to medical grade. Most either break me out or just sit on top, never absorbing. If they don't do either of those things, they're usually not very effective. This product, on the other hand, is such a HG for me because it absorbs quickly without greasy residue, does not break me out, and actually improves the look and texture of my skin. So for me it's worth the price.
Echo from Springfield, OR
The only thing this does better than my current moisturizer is absorb faster. I haven't seen better results from this. It's just a way overpriced jar of moisturizer.
Laura E. from North Carolina
This review is probably a little premature as I have only been using this product for a week. I am using it at night and I use the Perricone MD Esther C with 30 SPF for my day moisturizer. It is a substantial cream that absorbs quickly and is not greasy. So far it seems to be working fine. It has a very STRONG fragrance which goes away fairly quickly. It doesn't bother me but I've read many reviews say they couldn't use it solely because of the fragrance, so be aware of this.
Ashley from Undisclosed
I love everything about this....the texture, the scent, the results. I have tried using others and there is just no substitute. I've recommended it to anyone who has dry skin that needs a nice multipurpose cream for every day.

It's light, but moisturizing, and it also firms.
LW from NYC
Nice moisturizer. If fragrance wasn't so overwhelming, I would consider purchasing again
Christine from NJ
I had to stop using this product after doing some research. "Nanoparticles readily penetrate skin, and can invade underlying blood vessels and produce distant toxic effects, including brain degenerative disorders and nerve damage." Please Google Perricone and Nanoparticles.

I am using this moisturizer on my face and neck with the Face Firming serum and the Cold Plasma Sub-D Neck and wow, altogether my skin is smoother, soothed, more even-toned, tighter, and moisturized. I am not breaking out from this which is amazing since I have very sensitive, dry skin. I even have redness around my nose and cheeks and this does not make the skin more red, but it does soothe it when I use it with anti-redness creams. I am sold on this moisturizer -- it is simply wonderful -- glides on easily, makes my skin feel cool and moisturized, and it actually is fixing my skin. (I have tried so many other products that don't do anything.) it will be a staple in my routine from now on.
Betty from Gulfport, MS
I use this in the evening on alternate days from when I use prescription Retin A. It is very moisturizing and soothing while not greasy.
MaryEllen from Ambler, PA
I use this twice a day, morning and night. it makes my skin glow, and my wrinkles are already decreasing after only a few weeks of use!
Jen from Brick, NJ
This was recommended by an employee at the store and it was 50% off. I had to return it the next day due to the heavy, sweet scent. It gave me a headache immediately.
Jackie M. from CT
This moisturizer feels amazing and a little goes a long way. My skin is definitely smoother and fine lines are plump and less obvious. I use this moisturizer morning and night and find that if you use a small amount and blend it into your skin for a minute or so it soaks in well. If you have oily skin, this may be a bit too much moisture for you. My only complaint is the scent - it is strong. The closest thing I can compare it to is spruce or evergreen? I'm not sure what causes that scent, but if you're sensitive to strong smells, this cream is not for you.... otherwise, it works quite well!
