Pros:Smooth coverage

Cons:old tube hard to not waste product. New tube is improved. Small range of shades

The Bottom Line: This is a great covering product , but would not work for all skin tones


N.V. Perricone Outpatient Pore Refining Concealer

Hide those bags and blemishes!!!

Perricone has come up with a great little tube of thick effective concealer! It hides some of those late nights (and early mornings) from the public and in addition has an underlying positive longer term effect on my skin even when I am not wearing it. It goes on thicker than other concealers I have used in the past and stays on all day.

Dr. Nicholas Perricone is a groundbreaking dermatologist who has written specialized bestsellers on skin care as well as engineered an extensive line of skin care products all geared towards anti aging and other specialty skin care issues. This is one of my favorite products in his lines.


What’s in it???

The ingredients of the Outpatient Pore Refining Concealer are:

Water, Titanium Dioxide, Glutathione, Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Polyacrylamide (and) C13-14 Isoparaffin (and) Laureth-7, Iron Oxides, Barium Sulfate, Lecithin, Polysorbate 60, Cety Alcohol, Dimethyl MEA (DMAE), Lipoic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Betula Alba Bark Extract, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Propylene Glycol, DMDM Hydantoin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Fumed Silica, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Xanthan Gum and Disodium EDTA.

DMAE is the magical ingredient in this product which is responsible for the benefits I get from using this concealer. DMAE is a chemical produced naturally in the brain in small quantities and when used in a skin care application can improve muscle and skin tone. DMAE at the very least provides the appearance of lift in other Perricone products I have used.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is another key ingredient which helps to heal blemishes while at the same time having antioxidant properties.


Using this concealer and some of my other thoughts on it -

I like using this under my eyes and enjoy the results I get from it! It easily hides those dreaded dark spots and revives my entire look within minutes. My normal face make up glides right over it. I don’t wear face make up very often, so even with out it this concealer works effortlessly. It isn’t dry feeling like some other concealers I have tried in the past and seems to stay put once I have rubbed it in.

I like that it has DMAE to try and reduce pore size and feel that I do get a lasting lifting effect from using it for the past year or so. I noticed this just after using it a few times and now do not have to wear it as often for improved skin.

This concealer comes in a ounce tube for $35 and only seems to be available in a lighter tinted color. I think that Perricone should really rethink this decision! It is too light for me when I actually get sun in the summer time and I am extremely fair, so I imagine some more shades would be very useful on the market! I think they should also rethink the packaging on it because the tube is too small and I end up wasting a lot of product. It keeps coming out of the tube even when I am not squeezing. This happened to me with their lip plumper as well, but they have since changed the packaging on that to solve the problem. For $35, Perricone should take every care to make sure that consumers are getting every little dab of that concealer towards good use!



Side Note -

I have recently seen this also marketed as acne concealer in the Perricone line. It is the same product.

There is an extensive line of products in the Perricone line! I have tried several and will continue to try more. You can buy them on Amazon, Nordstrom, or on the manufacturer’s website: http://www.nvperriconemd.com.

I also have Dr. Perricone’s Anti-aging book and it is pretty fabulous! It makes you think about the things you eat and really take a look at what food does to our bodies. I also use some of his other anti-aging products on a regular basis and enjoy good results. I like the freedom of choosing your own problem areas and then combining whatever Perricone products that might work for you. It is a very flexible system that offers easy change or adjustment as needed and in this case elimination.


Lastly:

Perricone products are not tested on animals.


Special note:

A big thank you to Shantel575 for adding this to the database!
