Happy Hump Day guys! It’s been a while since I’ve shared a review of a complete skincare system with you all and today we are going to discuss and review the newest Anti-Aging skincare line – Essential Fx Acyl-Glutathione to the Perricone MD family. I’ve been a fan of Perricone MD’s products for a while and you can read my previous reviews on their Cold Plasma Plus+ face and eyes cream. Today we are going to dive into their newest collection and review the Essential Fx Acyl-Glutathione collection.
So what is Acyl-Glutathione? Acyl-Glutathione addresses the accelerated signs of aging, including: severe dryness, extreme loss of elasticity, deep lines and wrinkles, and fragile, thin-looking skin. Essential Fx Acyl-Glutathione is a daringly potent formula that contains Acyl-Glutathione to smooth deep wrinkles and creases along with a Vitamin F Blend to visibly replenish skin’s moisture barrier.
Essential Fx Acyl-Glutathione Rejuvenating Moisturizer is a nutrient-packed, skin-firming moisturizer with a rich, velvety texture. It deeply moisturizes, yet absorbs quickly, without leaving behind any residual greasiness or stickiness. Delivers optimal nourishment to help address dry, tight skin. Visibly improves etched creases making them appear more shallow. Minimizes the appearance of skin imperfections and imparts a beautiful radiance. The creamy texture of the moisturizer feels velvety and rich without the greasiness.
Intensive Overnight Moisturizer
This is probably my favorite product out of this whole collection. This velvety-rich, intensely moisturizing night cream delivers time-released nutrition throughout the night to retexturize skin, relax the appearance of expression lines and improve skin elasticity. It goes to work while you sleep, visibly firming, smoothing, and deeply hydrating skin. I tend to have dry skin and the rich formula of this moisturizer delivers the hydration and nourishment my skin needs. Your skin feels soft and supple after a good night of sleep.
Deep Crease Serum
Deep Crease Serum is designed to target the most stubborn deep-set lines, creases and wrinkles, including deep forehead wrinkles and expression lines. Imperfections appear shallower and expression lines appear erased while a Vitamin F Blend restores suppleness by visibly improving the skin’s moisture barrier. The texture of this serum is smooth and creamy. I had high hopes for this but my smile lines are still there after a few weeks of use. Perhaps if I keep up the usage, I will notice a bit of more difference.
Smoothing & Brightening Under-Eye Cream
According to Perricone MD, the Smoothing & Brightening Under-Eye Cream is one of their best eye creams for wrinkles that nourishes and conditions, instantly softening the appearance of dark circles, lines and wrinkles. I love the formulation, it’s thick and creamy yet lightweight. While wrinkle isn’t my biggest concern when it comes to the eye area, I do have issue with puffiness and dark circles. I didn’t notice much changes to the wrinkles around my eyes (probably because there isn’t many to begin with) I did notice the dark circle under my eyes improved. I didn’t see many changes to puffiness on my lids or under but I suspect that this would not be the product to address those concerns.
Eyelid Lift Serum
Eyelid Lift Serum is an ultra-lightweight eyelid tightening serum with a fast-absorbing texture to visibly smooth eyelid creases, crepiness and uneven texture, as it noticeably lifts the look of sagging eyelids. It softens the appearance of dark circles, lines and wrinkles and addresses loss of elasticity and discoloration due to aging. I didn’t use this product much aside from the initial unboxing. Because my concern is more on the puffiness and the Eyelid Lifting Serum would address the exact opposite, excessive sagging and plumping the lids. I gave this product to my mom and will report back with her thoughts in a follow up.
Overall, I am quite impressed with this new line of product from Perricone MD to fight the signs of aging. The entire line feels very luxurious, the texture of the formula is smooth on the skin and not sticky or greasy. My favorite is the overnight moisturizer and will be continuing to use it.
Thank you all for reading!
