Hi! This is not a moisturizer, but a nighttime treatment. I recommend adding a moisturizer on top of this product. It has Vitamin C Ester in it (compared to regular Vitamin C) which penetrates into skin cells. Regular Vitamin C does not have the same results. I use a very small amount.

This is your moisturizer. If you want additional moisture add a serum before putting the cream on.

I use this as my night time moisturizer and have liked the results. i also use the Cold Plasma Eye Treatment and love it also. Just remember that you only use very little. I use a Qtip to dispense it. I freaked when I saw the size of the jar and the cost but have been using it day and night and still have about half the product left after a month. Just a dot under each eye and pat that good stuff under the eye and the lid and you'll be good to go.

I use it at night/early a.m. hours as I do my regimen once a day at night... as I am at home employed only by my voluntary product and book reviews. So, in answer to your question, there are mixed messages given for use of this product... label says morning... but I was told by Perricone staff, that it is to be used at night. Therefore, I advise a.m. and p.m. or just one time if you are like me in your regimen timing.

I have been using it morning and evening, using less in the am. I mix some face finishing moisturizer with my no foundation foundation to get an awesome glow, finishing off with tarte smooth operator so I don't look oily.

You don't need a moisturizer on top - you can add a serum underneath if you like. I only use this at night but you could probably use it in the day as long as you add some SPF protection on top.

is this pore refining?
I am looking for an anti-aging nighttime moisturizer that will refine my pores. I've used Perricone before and am wondering if this is pore refining as well? Thank you!

Yes, It is pore refining as the formulation is a 'smoothie' for skin texture over wrinkles, pores, hydrating that doesn't clog nor make the pores larger... I love this Treatment... and recommend it for any skin type or age bracket... I am seventy...

I use the Concentrated Restorative Treatment as the last application in my night regimen... underneath after cleansing, I use the Facial Firming Activator, then all over face and neck too, the Perricone Deep Wrinkle Serum, Cold Plasma, Acyl-Glutathione, Eye Lid Serum (two: first the eye lid lift formulation over brow, bottom contour, and on the entire eyelid, then the eye neuropeptide over the lift -- suggestion: give the eye lid lift application a minute or so to absorb; Cold Plasma D on the neck followed by Perricone's Neck Firming.

Affirmative, with a no paraben formula, fast absorption, smooth application in the texture of the 'cream' it is safe for your skin. I use it daily at night specifically after other serums/treatments and the first I used it, I felt and saw the difference in my facial derma in silky feel, firming even, and oh so smooth.

If you skin is drier than normal, I would recommend Deep Moisture Therapy as your moisturizer. It's more hydrating than other Perricone moisturizers. Consider using Cold Plasma before your moisturizer for added hydrating and anti-aging benefits.

There are several moisturizers I use (I'm seventy) and recommend: philosophy's miracle worker moisturizer; Perricone facial firming moisturizer, and Perricone Concentrated Restorate Treatment... the latter will really surprise you... I know it did me on the first application I felt my facial derma 'firm', hydrate, and silky smooth.

Perricone products are tops as are philosophy... I recommend the Perricone Concentrated Restorative Treatment... for all skin types no matter if combination skin, dry, nor oily. The first application I reacted to immediately, felt firmer, smoother, and hydrated with no residue left behind. Also, I use philosophy's miracle worker retinoid pads in conjunction with their miracle worker moisturizer.

Has the formulation of this been changed recently?
I bought a jar about 8 months ago, but the jar that I just bought has a different smell and texture to it. I didn't buy it from Sephora, so I'm worried that the seller may not be selling the real product. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks, ladies (or fellas)!
