Overall Opinion:

Perricone MD High Potency Evening Repair lotion isn’t my favorite retinol product.

I gave it a 2 out of 5 rating which makes it a below average product.

Although I did notice some subtle changes to my skin, I didn’t notice enough of a change in my lines and wrinkles to want to run out and buy another bottle, or give it a super high ranking.

I honestly HATED the smell. Every night I would dread having to put it on…

It was even noticed by others as I walked into the room, which is never a positive thing. (YIKES!)

This product would have to be AMAZING and one of a kind for me to want to continue to use it because of the smell. Unfortunately it just wasn’t.

I also don’t like that your only option to purchase is a two ounce bottle. Although the price per ounce is not bad, the overall purchase price is expensive since you have to essentially buy in bulk.

I have normal to dry skin, and it made my face require a lot more daily hydration.

I think that someone with normal to oily skin may see a better result using this product!

Detailed Opinion:

Texture/Feel

Perricone MD High Potency Evening Repair comes out as a white lotion.

It’s very lightweight and feels really thin to the touch.

It almost has a water-like texture to it, which you would not expect based on its visual appearance.

Application

Applying this lotion is really simple.

After you cleanse your skin before bedtime, you apply a thin layer all over your face and neck.

I followed the directions on the bottle and applied each night.

Drying Time

Perricone MD dries fairly quickly.

Your skin never feels greasy after you apply which is great.

It does however feel dewy for about 5 minutes, but nothing more than how your skin feels after any moisturizer is applied.

Smell

The smell of this one is TERRIBLE!

This was one of the biggest turn-offs for me.

When you first pump the product out, you can’t immediately tell if there’s going to be a smell or not.

As soon as it hits your face, the smell hits you.

The best way to describe it is almost dirty garbage-like.

The worst part is, the smell doesn’t go away for a long time. It took almost 30 minutes for me to notice it start to subside.

Short Term Results

After waking up the next morning after using the lotion, I didn’t notice a huge change.

However, my skin looked smooth which is always a plus when trying a new retinol product, and I experienced no side effects.

When I first applied it at night, I noticed a slight tingly sensation to my skin, but that went away and never returned.

Longer Term Results

Long term I noticed a few subtle changes in my skin.

Fine lines seemed a bit less noticeable and my skin felt a bit smoother.

However, I would say not nearly as hydrated.

This product, although it never made me peel, made my skin dry. I had to use extra daily moisturizer.

My lines did appear to fade and my skin appeared slightly tighter which is good, but I felt as if my makeup went on slightly worse.

Ingredients Analysis

Perricone MD High Potency Evening Repair contains retinol, however it doesn’t specify how much.

I tend to like when products indicate the percentage because then it’s a dead giveaway of how strong it’s going to be.

It also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid.

This ingredient is known for being an antioxidant.

It rebuilds vitamin E and vitamin C, which is why this is great substance to have in a reparative face lotion.

In addition it contains DMAE, also known as dimethylaminoethanol.

DMAE is known to soothe skin and help with redness and irritation, which is probably why I never experienced those side effects with this product.

Price

A two ounce tube of Perricone MD High Potency Evening Repair is $98.00.

Now that may cause sticker shock, however that breaks down to $49.00 per ounce.

Although $49.00 per ounce isn’t the least expensive product out there, it certainly is not the most expensive either.

Guarantee

When purchased through Perricone, there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee offered, which is great!
