5 Summer Essentials from Perricone MD

Perricone MD review, essential beauty products for Summer

Shop The Post


Here are 5 skincare essentials for Summer from luxury brand, Perricone MD*, that will help prep your skin and give you a radiant and healthy glow this Summer! I'm giving away this whole set worth a total of over £300.00! That's AMAZING, right? Details of the giveaway later but first, how do the products match up?  

Chloro Plasma (face mask) - £67.00
I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS PRODUCT. Out of the whole set, Chloro Plasma is my favourite and the one I would highly recommend if you were to buy one product from the Perricone MD range. I featured it in my recent Current Beauty Favourites blogpost at the beginning of the month and severals weeks of using it, I am still amazed by it. 

When my skin is having a lack lustre day where it feels dehydrated, scaly and flakey, I know that this little pot is going to fix it right up. It's like a luxury treat for my face! The creamy gel dries as a clay on your skin and you can feel a slight tightening sensation but it shouldn't tingle.

You will feel your your face tighten with most clay masks as it sets and hardens. Chloro Plasma is an anti-ageing formula containing microcapsules of chlorophyll (this takes me back to my primary school nature project!) which burst as you massage the capsules in to your skin which is quite therapeutic and I don't think the novelty will ever wear off. Upon application, the burst capsules causes the pale green gel-to-clay to turn in to a deep green, making you look like the Wicked Witch of The West from Wizard Of Oz. 

You rinse with water after ten minutes of leaving it on and my skin feels so much better after using Chloro Plasma. It plumps, brightens, purifies, detoxifies, smoothes out wrinkles, tighten up pores and illuminate your skin's overall appearance. You can definitely feel all of this happening when the masks is on your face and you can most certainly see the difference once you've wiped it all off. The results are visible after the first time you've used it and provides a quick fix to dull looking skin.

Photo Plasma (face moisturiser) - £57.00
I love the name of this, it just makes me feel like when I have this cream on, I'm ready for any photo! This odourless cream is especially fantastic for Summer because it contains an the all important SPF. The SPF 30 in the Photo Plasma will help protect you from harmful sun exposure, which not only damages your skin, but it ages you (argh, those wrinkles!). It's a nice product for those who spend a lot of time outdoors. I live by the phrase "Prevention is better than cure" in regards to health and well-being (although, stressing about the tiniest things on a daily basis is probably speeding up the ageing process! Hello grey hair!) but I've been really keen on SPF face creams this year, I am pushing on 30 next year and I am really starting to stress out about ageing skin. 

This moisturiser is surprisingly lightweight and oil-free unlike the traditional sun screen you get. It has a moussey texture which is suitable for all skin types. It sinks in without clogging your pores and it creates a hydrated and healthy radiant look.

Cold Plasma Body - £79.50
Due to the name of it, I thought Cold Plasma was going to feel cold upon application! It is an body treatment formulated to target issues such as sagging and cellulite. Now, this is the one product out of the lot that I've liked the least.

Not because of it's lack of results, I mean, it does exactly what it promises, but I find that it smells a little funny - which I know seems very trivial considering how amazing this body treatment is. It is suppose to be odourless and doesn't contain synthetic or artificial fragrance but I have a very sensitive nose and every time I apply this cream, I can smell something in the cream that reminds me of the fish oil supplement capsules.

Perhaps it's just me, though! Everyone else raves about this product! I do, however, believe that the Cold Plasma Body is great for ladies who are older, or have given birth, or just generally those who feel concerned about stretch marks and loose skin.

Cold Plasma Body contains ingredients that improves the skin's elasticity and firms up loose crepey skin by tightening and toning. It also contains sodium hyalorunate to lock in moisture which plumps and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. Caffeine is one of the key ingredients in Cold Plasma Body that reduces cellulite too. 

No Foundation Foundation - £48.00
The no make up make up range is something that I've been intrigued about! Although nothing will stop me from wearing foundation, I often find it very uncomfortable having it on so when this came along, I couldn't wait to try it!

The No Foundation Foundation is available in two shades (fair and classic) and it contains a non-chemical SPF 30 and provides a light coverage with a translucent layer to even out skin tone. I do prefer foundations to have a matte finish so I find it a bit too dewy for me, but it leaves a nice silky sheen which lasts all day. It would be most suitable for those with dry skin.

In terms of how it feels; it is lightweight and moisturising, but it also stays quite sticky for a long time and I'm going to guess that that's due to the SPF. It takes a while for it to settle on your skin, and feels similar to a primer. I've been using the No Foundation Foundation with a anti-shine setting powder and it looks lovely and natural. 

Chia Serum - £62.00
Serums have been part of my skincare regime for just over a year now, and as I am still in the phase of experimenting, I love trying different ones. Chia Serum is an oil-based serum this is the latest addition to my growing collection and a couple of drops from the pipette is enough to cover your whole face.

If you've had a late night or your skin is feeling a bit battered from a night out, Chia Serum gives it a bit of a boost transforming it from dull to glowing. One of my favourite things about this serum is that it smells like maraschino cherries! You can use this serum under or over make up, with or without moisturiser and this scientifically formulated serum is  a multi-tasker!

It's anti-ageing, instantly nourishing and turns dull, tired skin in to vibrant, bright complexion! Sometimes my moisturiser doesn't quite cut it on days where I'm having issues with my skin due to various factors such as cold weather, dehydration, stress or hormones, serums seems to help with locking in moisture.
