Features and Benefits of Intensive Moisture Therapy

Intensive Moisture Therapy, gentle enough for stressed skin, delivers visibly more radiant and healthier looking skin. This moisture therapy cream is especially formulated with Phospholipids as well as DMAE and Tocotrienols.

Phospholipids (Phos E), ultra-rich humectants, boost hydration levels in skin and create a protective barrier. They repair damaged skin and help to hydrate and treat dry, fragile skin. Since they mimic the lipids found naturally in skin, Phospholipids allow for immediate absorption.

DMAE re-contours, tones, and lifts. Watch Dr. Perricone discuss topical DMAE below:

Tocotrienols are a superior form of vitamin E, included in this moisture therapy cream to deliver antioxidant and emollient benefits. They treat sensitive or dry skin and impart a vibrant, rosy glow.

  1. I need this in my life!! Dry skin at this time of year is hard to deal with without having your face look greasy

  2. Link up with the Mr. Linky form down below.a0 Please put the link to your POST, not to your blog.a0 More on that here.3. Then visit the other participants and see what they lenared this week. And comment, comment,

  3. I am experience lots of dryign around the mouth, jowl and cheek areas. So far nothing seems to help even shea butter products

    I have sen you ads in many women’s magazines, Vogue, Marie Cliare, Bazaar and would like to try a sample of the intense moisture therapy. I am allergic to many chemicals in face creams

  4. I have super dry skin – so much so that I’ve had to abandon my old skin care routine & start using a thick cream on my face. I’m concerned that the product I’m using doesn’t have any antiaging benefits though & I’m looking for a skin care regimen that does & still hydrates my face.

  5. I would like to say first – I am 57 years young — and have avoided what I felt was the “hype” with Perricone products. I had gone to Nordstrom and bought Osmotics – blue copper and eye surgery. While I know skincare products take a while to see results – I didn’t feel that for the amount of money I spent – the product was worth it — I also realize I did not give it enough time.

    That said, I went to Nordstrom in Escondido. The skincare expert there, Shelly, returned my product and recommended Dr. Perricone.
    I told her I was reluctant to jump on the bandwagon – and that I had sampled the eye creme years before and did not like the smell. I purchased the Gentle Cleanser, Cold Plasma face and Eye — and went back to buy a moisturizer — Face Finish Moisturizer….and no foundation, foundation after using a sample.

    AND, I stand corrected. I LOVE GENTLE CLEANSER. I can believe there might be one better for 57 year old skin – and would love to test it…..for now – I would say run don’t walk to buy this product.

    COLD PLASMA FACE AND EYE – Love, love, love the product. Admittedly, I have not used everything am and pm. We have recently moved and life has been insane – today I will start. That said – it absorbs quickly – it is light and my skin looks better!

    FACE FINISH MOISTURIZER — for my sensitive skin and sense of smell – the scent though not unpleasant at all – felt too strong.

    I did return it and purchased INTENSE MOISTURE THERAPY….Love it, love it. It is thick – and absorbs quickly. I am very happy with this product.

    I am very interested in becoming a Perricone tester – it’s almost funny to hear myself say that out loud …..but, Dr. Perricone – you have some wonderful skin care products…I sincerely stand corrected.

    Thank you!!!!!

  6. I would love to be a tester for this product. My skin is very dry, as well as sensitive, not to mention it gets red in patches. I have not found anything that truly helps these conditions. I think my readers would love to see my before, during, and after photos that I would be happy to share with during my post. I am a consumer, so I like to see what products really do – not just read about them…and my readers would be able to see what the products did for me. Thanks for the possible opportunity.

  7. I am looking for a good moisturizer. Doesn’t seem like anything I’ve tried has helped. I live in a dry climate, and my face is pretty dry. Thanks!

  8. fatigued skin, that is an understatement of how my skin really is. my skin is in emergency distress. it is in critical need of repair with the focus on moisturising and healing. I could not put moisturizer on my skin because of large pores, and combination skin. cant imaging the thought of being able to have normal skin, the mere thought would be enlightening to me.. being a product tester would be a dream come true! I would sing the praise of the most beautiful song bird to the world of this remarkable break through………

  21. I have recently found out about this amazing product by watching QVC. I would love to become a tester of this product line for a few reasons.
