I’ve said in the past that you don’t need to spend a lot on a moisturiser.  It’s my belief that serious investment is better placed in serums and facial oils as they’re more easily able to penetrate skin to deliver nutrients, anti-ageing ingredients and antioxidants.  For me, moisturiser is about protection and comfort, and there are plenty of great ones available that don’t cost a fortune.

So why do I love Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturiser so much?  At just over £49, it’s not cheap, and I have used plenty of less-expensive moisturisers that work well.  Just not as well.  This might actually be my Holy Grail moisturiser – no small feat as I am notoriously fussy when spending this much money on a product.

It contains a lot of wonderful ingredients like vitamins C and E,  alpha lipoic acid, wheat protein, glycerine and kukui nut oil.  But it’s what it does on the skin that impresses me.  It’s light – almost like a lotion in a cream form.  It sinks into the skin quickly and makes mine look instantly smooth, luminous and healthy.  It’s a dream under makeup and I don’t need a primer to keep my foundation in place.  It keeps my skin comfortable and hydrated all day and it smells lovely.

Effectiveness: 5 – hydrates, comforts, plumps, illuminates, and works well under makeup.

User Experience: 5 – it has the best texture of any cream I’ve used and has a light rose scent.

Comfort: 5 – keeps my dry, dehydrated skin happy all day.

Repurchase: Yes, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for discounts.
