Perrricone MD Cold Plasma Face Moisturizer Review

Does It Really Fight 10 Signs of Aging, or Just Beat Money From Your Wallet?

Are you looking for a moisturizer that’s free of all of the “bad stuff” but packed to the lid with all of the good stuff?

Perricone MD’s Cold Plasma may be just what you’re looking for but with the price tag that it carries (right around $100 or so, and as high as $150 from the Perricone website) let’s take a super-close look at what they claim, what’s actually in it and what real users have to say about it.

What Do They Claim?

Perricone MD claims that they’ve invested 5 years of research into the Cold Plasma series and have created a product that addresses the 10 visible signs of aging using Neuropeptides and DMAE. Those 10 signs include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Dryness
  • Redness
  • Discoloration
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Impurities
  • Loss of firmness
  • Loss of smoothness
  • Loss of radiance

Cold Plasma also claims to be great for all skin types, but that’s what they all say. If you have combination skin, you’ve heard that before!

What’s In It?

So what the heck is a Neuropeptide and what’s all the fuss about DMAE? Excellent questions, and I’ve researched both. Here’s what I found.

Neuropeptides (in this case DMAE) are peptides that block the release of neurotransmitters. In theory, the neuropeptide would act similarly to Botox, Dysport, or other neuromodulators. The problem is that there’s not much data showing that topical neurotransmitters can make it all the way through the skin down into the muscle. Maybe, maybe not.

There are a ton of other good ingredients in this product, though. There’s an oil-soluble form of vitamin C that’s been modified to penetrate your skin efficiently, retinyl palmitate (a more gentle form or vitamin A than retinol), hyaluronic acid, and several minerals and peptides. These are all great ingredients even if you leave out the neuropeptide claim.

What may be of more importance to some of you than others is what’s NOT in this cream. There are no sulfates, parabens, synthetic perfumes or artificial dyes. One thing that I don’t particularly like about this moisturizer is that there’s no sunscreen in it.

Overall though, I’m impressed with the ingredients but I want to see what people who’ve actually tried Perricone MD’s Cold Plasma have to say.

What Are Users Saying?

People love the Cold Plasma. It’s as simple as that. I tried to find bad reviews but the only one that I could come up with was a 3-star where a girl with sensitive skin claimed that broke her out for a couple of days, but then she went on to say that her face cleared up and is now better than ever.

One huge complaint is that it smells bad, but since it has no artificial anything in it, that’s sorta to be expected. The smell doesn’t seem to keep people from buying it though because they all say that no matter how bad it smells, it’s worth it for the results.

Final Word

Considering the reviews and the ingredients for this moisturizer, I’d have to say go for it if you can afford it. A word of warning, though: don’t set up the auto delivery until you know that you like it and want to reorder it. Those things are often difficult to stop once you start them. Also, don’t forget to add a sunscreen if you’re going to use this as your morning cream.
