I have been on the hunt for a facial moisturizer that helps with redness (I have tested another and will be reviewing that soon too). If a cream helps with the decrease in appearance of wrinkles near my eyes and hydrate my skin (especially within the winter months), that would help as well!
I got to try a sample of Perricone’s Cold Plasma recently. I did some research and read reviews of the product through other sites. Some raved and a few disliked the cream. For a skin treatment that is much more expensive than the rest, I can understand their frustration if it did not work for them. This piqued my curiosity to try it out for myself.
Here is what I noticed.
I used the application tool and applied about 3/4 scoop. After drying, My skin felt very smooth and slightly tightened. I could tell it was on but it was light and not greasy. The cream absorbed quickly and I didn’t have to wait several mins to apply foundation. My immediate thoughts — Cold Plasma is great!
This time I used about 1/2 scoop. After it absorbed, my face was smooth once again. It appeared to have helped with some redness I was experiencing because of the dry skin. My fine lines appeared less defined.
Third, Fourth, Fifth application:
I used 1/4 scoop. I wanted to test a smaller amount since it spreads well and a little goes a long way. The results were similar but I did not notice the same firm feeling in my skin when I used more.
Please note, the instructions suggest to apply morning and night. Because I have combination skin, I chose to apply once a day. With that in mind, I can imagine this cream will last me close to two or three months. One of the reviews I read, someone said the cream smelled fishy. However, the odor to me smells similar to any other cold cream (Ponds etc).
I am a fan of Dr. Perricone’s blog (read it here) and found an article regarding the ingredient DMAE (read about it here). It is one of the ingredients in Cold Plasma. There are mixed opinions on how this organic compound effects skin cells. However, with my own experience, I could see first hand it worked to lessen the redness immediately.
Reviewing solely on effectiveness with helping with my skin issues, Cold Plasma worked well, did not leave an oily feeling and dried quickly. Given a jar costs approximately $150 for 1 fl. oz., over two-three months, the average cost is between $50-$75/month. If you go to the salon and have facials, this is a great at home alternative in my opinion. I noticed the redness on my face still showed a bit when I did not put it on one morning. I would imagine this is not a permanent solution but definitely a great supplement to any facial regimen.
