Week of Moisturizers: PerriconeMD

Yesterday we discussed the beauty product I travel with. Today is the daily moisturizer that I cannot live without.

My skin is overtly dry. I don't know if it's from growing up in the mountains or if it's hereditary, but every time I have a facial, I hear, "Your skin is really dry. You should drink more water." Well folks, I drink at least 10 glasses of water every day. So that's not what it is.

And then I found PerriconeMD Face Finishing Moisturizer. It came as a sample with my Beauty Insider from Sephora.

It claims to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while providing antioxidant protection. It also says it helps firm skin and give it a dewy, radiant look.

I should have taken a photo of my face when I started using it and one now to see if that's true. What I do know is that I haven't broken out in more than two months and that my face feels thousands of times better.

The only problem? No SPF in it. But I use Rebel Lite over it every morning, which has SPF 15. I think, in this case, I can have my cake and eat it too.

  1. It must be us mountain women, because I have dry skin, as well...I just went to Sephora this week though, and looked at about 50 different moisturizers (the blog inspired me, what can I say!) and ended up going home with the Cosmedicine Night and Day Kit.


    It comes with Primary Care lotion for the day (with SPF 20) and Private Nurse Recovery and Repair Lotion for the night. I know it's only been about 3 days since I started using it, but I already loved it. My face actually feels soft in the mornings rather than dry! I really like the day lotion, as well. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and it absorbs completely in about 3 minutes. I have a feeling I'll be sticking with this combo for a while.

    Any thoughts on good body lotions?
