Skin/Hair Type: Oily and occasionally acne-prone/Normal
Hello gorgeous ladies,
Perricone MD is one of those brands that actually take skin care seriously and come up with products that actually work! This brand comes under the category of “medicated skin care” and all products are cautiously made to provide maximum benefits to the skin. So, I picked up the Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser during Sephora’s semi-annual sale and have been using this baby since then and now and I am ready to review it. So, let’s get started!
CAD 55 for 237 ml (approximately INR 2900)
Ingredients and Directions For Use:
My Experience with Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser:
Packaging: This cleanser comes in a nice and sturdy dark olive green-colored glass bottle with a pump. The bottle is black and purple in colour and has the open-close lock mechanism. It looks so classy. The quality of the bottle or the pump is really sturdy and high-end looking.
It also comes housed in a cardboard paper packaging with all the details on it. All in all, very nice packaging except for the glass bottle, which I need to be very careful about. Also, this packaging makes it almost impossible to travel with!
Texture and Smell: The cleanser is a slight olive-coloured gel-like formulation, which is a little bit runny. It does not feel greasy or oily at all like most other gel cleansers do. My skin tends to be oily, so I was happy to find that this cleanser is great at hydrating my skin yet is light and non greasy. I was surprised that my skin felt less oily after using this cleanser, which is very rare.
It lathers really well and surprisingly washes off quickly too without leaving the skin with that squeaky feeling! As for the smell, I am glad to say that this baby has no fragrance whatsoever! This feature in any skin care product for the face makes me really happy and generates a respect for that brand. I know I am weird ;-p
Quality: This is one of the best cleansers I have used so far, period! After washing my face with this baby, it makes the skin so soft and velvety (like how it feels after applying a silicone-based primer!). Since the time I have been using this cleanser, I look forward to washing my face day and night with this baby. I am thoroughly impressed! Well done Perricone MD! This gives me confidence and faith to try out other awesome products from this brand now.
