I’d like to introduce you to our featured brand of the month, the brand that is Perricone MD. Some of you may have heard of it, some may not. A lesser known name in the beauty industry amongst the masses, but a sworn by industry secret amongst the ones in the know and those Hollywood superstars. As we are so nice, and dedicated in providing the best kept secrets in the industry we’ve decided to let you in on the secret. This wrinkle busting brand is making waves, as a skincare brand that graces the face of the A-list and really makes a difference.

As big believers in personalised products it seems only natural that we have turned to Dr Perricone this month. Their products can be chose by specific skin concern rather than trawling through 100’s of products to find to work for your specific issue. As a nation of time poor women, I can only advocate this approach. Dr Perricone targets the following skincare concerns:

Deep Lines & Creases

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Loss of Firmness


Enlarged Pores


Sun Damage & Discoloration

Dry & Sensitive

I think we can all find that we relate to at least one of them (oh the perils of aging), if that’s the case, then read on. First of all, don’t worry, you’re not the only one that does. Even Hollywood celebrities suffer from these skin concerns. They just have a giant entourage of make up artists who can cover these imperfections up at the merest slight of hand. For us mere mortals, there’s Perricone MD.

Before we can start telling you about the wonderful products from Perricone MD, first of all we need to fill you in on the background of who, what, and why it was created. Dr. Nicholas Perricone, MD, FACN, the man who created the brand is a board certified clinical and research dermatologist. Academically gifted he completed medical school within just 3 years. (I’m impressed already), studied at Yale Medical School and practiced a Dermatology Residency at Ford Medical Center. He knows his stuff. And if that hasn’t caught your attention enough, in the interest of anti ageing Dr. Perricone is regarded as the "Father of the Inflammation", as well as being the author of three New York Times # 1 Best Sellers.

To fast forward a little and get onto the really good stuff (where we tell you which of the products are worth the hype) Dr. Perricone arrived at the conclusion that cellular inflammation may be the underlying cause of wrinkles. Microscopic irritation in your cells leads to cellular damage, and this inflammation is responsible for those pesky problems such as breakouts, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. It was then than Perricone skincare line was launched. Dr. Perricone's award-winning line of skin care products has now extended to cosmeceuticals too, and here at My Beauty Matches, we are lucky enough to try them. More about that later...

Now onto the Hollywood fans...Think Gwyneth Paltrow's age defying skin (and body) come entirely from eating Goop worthy food and $3,000 facials? Wrong. Well they probably help a lot, but not entirely. When Gwyneth hits the red carpet she turns to Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum £45.00 she even raved about it in a recent Goopnewsletter, for its sheer coverage and instant radiance.

Another age defying celebrity who counts herself as a BIG fan is Uma Thurman. “From his vitamin line to his superb skin care products, Dr. Perricone has not only helped me look better but has improved my overall quality of life,” Uma says. She thinks if anyone can make her glow, it’s Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals. Her favourite products include is the Firming Facial Peel-Off Mask, the Pore Minimiser and the Perricone MD Vitamin line.

The Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimiser £50.00 is an oil-free treatment that targets anti-aging, minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores, lines, and crow’s feet by filling in the wrinkles, with microspheres. Uma loves that, “They make your skin jump to attention.”

That got your attention? Mine too. Keep you eyes peeled over the next few weeks for our Tried & Tested reviews on their bestsellers, new launches and their cosmeceuticals range. Right, enough talking, I’m off to do some some in depth research on Perricone MD. (hard life hey?).
