Question
Is this a moisturizer or a serum?

answer 1
Probably somewhere in between--I would consider it a serum, a moisturizing one (if that makes sense). It has the texture of a cream, not a thin liquid. I have really dry skin and I layer my moisturizer over it. If you have normal or oily skin you might find it's fine to use it alone.

I consider it a serum but it also has moisturizing properties. I sometimes apply a moisturizer over it, but it is not necessary in the summer (unless you have dry skin). For me, it has taken the place of Retin-A.

This product is like a thin cream to be used as your last step before moisturizing.

Moisterizer. I like serums, but this does dry quickly and leaves your skin soft like a serum.

It has the consistency of a moisturizer, but it's meant to be more of a serum. If you're very dry, I'd recommend putting an actual moisturizer over it.

NO. Contains Retinol, acids, and other ingredients that are NOT safe for pregnancy because they travel through your blood stream to the baby.

Question
% of retinol
I was wondering if anyone can tell me what percentage of retinol is in this product. It says it has the highest % of retinol available. Does it dry the skin when you first start to use it? Thanks

Not sure of the percentage of retinol but I do not find this is drying to the skin. I do use a moisturizer on top (after waiting 10 min.) as my skin is getting drier as I age. I find this product non irritating and I have combo/sensitive skin. Using for 6 months and never a breakout.

I've been using it for about a month and found it e xtremely drying. I'll be returning because I just can't deal with the dryness and pealing/flaking. At first I thought, oh, this is good. I'll have fresh looking skin underneath. Not exactly, just made me look like I have skin issues.

Samples are a great way to try new products & we include three free samples with every Sephora.com order. The sample selection is listed on our website and changes frequently, so check back often to see what we're offering. At this time we are not able to send custom samples from our warehouse.

Another great way to try new products is to visit your local Sephora store. At the store, a Cast Member can make a tester for you of any products that we carry. They can also answer questions for you and make recommendations for other products. To find a store near you, check out our store locator.

this product with the concentrated restorative treatment for me would be to much. the crt cream makes my skin itchy and it sometimes burns a little. try the night repair with the face finishing moisturizer and eye cream and you should be set. you can also use the day repair with the face finishing mosturizer and eye cream and save yourself some money!

Can you use Concentrated Restorative treatment on top of this?
Or does this need to be used alone at night? I am currently using the Restorative treatment at nite and like it alot. Would like an extra boost. Please let me know if you currently use these products or if restorative treatment can be used in the daytime??
Thanks

Absolutely! I've been doing it for years. Of course to answer this, like any skin-based question you have to know you're skin. I have dry, allergic, aging skin with adult acne (that's treated through retinol products). None of Perricone's products have ever caused me problems with allergies so I'm willing to try just about any combo with them. That said, if you have "sensitive skin" it might be different. They are both strong products and combining them could have an effect on your skin (there's a difference between allergic and sensitive skin). So then you have to decide what you're trying to treat. To me retinol is scientifically based so I trust that. If you're treating aging or acne than I would recommend it. I do feel that the other product does help in firming, but retinol literally fights the signs of aging but building collegan in your skin so I think it's a better product.

I use both products together the same way you are. I think it makes sense to put the retinol on first, however using two serums together takes away the effectiveness of the second product.

Using an over the counter vitamin a or vitamin a derivative like retinol should be just fine for pregnant women. Most of the evidence indicates that topical retinol in does not increase the risk for congenital malformations.

Question
This versus Estee Lauder's advanced night repair serum?
I came across this product and it seems great! I've been using Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair for 2+ months and it's helped my acne prone dry skin a good bit, but there is definitely room for improvement. Has anyone else used this product and the Estée Lauder? Comparison between the two?

I've used both and the Lauder smells better. The HPER actually gave me visable results though, and within 4 weeks I'd lost about 5 years from my face. I'm not easily impressed, I dont expect miracles, but I will repeat purchase this!

I don't use Estee Lauder products but I do use several Perricone products and they just really cant be beat. I happen to love this particular product in my nighttime routine. Dr. Perricone is reputable and I love the science behind his line. I'm biased but I would guess this product blows Estee lauder away. However, if you have sensitive skin I would maybe ask a professional if this product is OK for you, before using. And it does have a stinky odor but again, I personally dont mind that because it fades and i use this at night.
