I never noticed a smell at all. I agree with what someone said above- seems like the smells were from people using sample packets. I have the jar and have never noticed anything foul (and I typically have a pretty sensitive nose).

It doesn't smell at all. I bought the jar and have never used the sample packets. However, I noticed that many of the complaints about the smell are regarding the samples, leading me to wonder if there is something about the preservation (or lack thereof) in that type of packaging which is causing it to go rancid. The actual jar of Cold Plasma really has no scent at all. I have a fairly sensitive nose. Some perfumes give me headaches and I am very attuned to the smells around me. In other words, I am conscientiously aware of smells and I found nothing unpleasant about this product. (Obviously this does not apply to the samples which I have no experience with).

I'm changing my answer from some time ago. I claimed it smelled bad and couldn't use it, BUT, a small amount only is needed, your skin soaks it in and as soon as your moisturizer goes on, the smell dissipates. I think my sample packet smelled far worse than my purchase in the jar. Breathe through your mouth when you apply it and think seaweed and seagrass and not fish and you'll find it's easier to deal with.

I received a sample and I won't even finish the packet, because the smell turns me. It smells like something that was natural and alive and now dead and stinking. It made me come to the site to see what it was and if others are experiencing it. It fades when I put my moisturizer over it, but it is not a nice smell at all. I won't purchase any for this reason alone.

Yes, it truly smells awful. From reading other comments, I agree that fish market and even a slight hint of formaldehyde could describe the scent of this product. I was only able to use this a few times before I discontinued use. Also, I did not notice any profound benefits to my skin to outweigh the scent. If you feel compelled to try it (and you have extremely dulled senses), try a sample from Sephora first. Otherwise, I wouldn't suggest splurging on this!

As far as the smell goes, it doesn't have any artifical additives, so it might bother some, but it does not linger and the results are well worth it. This is an incredible product. Sephora sells a sample set of it and the eye cold plasma for $15. Highly recommended to try it out.

YES--SMELLS BAD!! Both the face and the eye "creams" smell like dead fish---and I have broken my nose before so I don't smell things well unless the scent is strong. HOWEVER--I think a little goes a long way so use sparingly and let it soak in...you skin will drink it up. I've never had the scent "linger" or had a boyfriend (or anyone) comment regarding the smell. My sister uses it also and she CAN smaell...face plasma doesn't bother her but she finds the eye "cream" to be worse and won't use it. Ultimately, the benefits are worth it and I suspect either others are using too much or are just simply very sensitive to scents/smells. Try it for yourself---we all know Sephora has a fantastic return policy!!

Slight, slight smell; just like the contour cream. But it goes away really soon. I was SO scared to get this item because of all the "smelly" reviews. This is NOT a fishy smell. I just started using it tonight, so I don't know about the performance, but I HAD to comment about the smell -don't be afraid of all the sensitive nose gals. I will email back in one month, about the performance.

The product does have a slight fishy smell when you first put it on, but then it fades away. It is just the DMAE, which comes from Salmon and other fish. HOWEVER, this product is AMAZING for your skin. I will say that some of the Perricone toners are a little too smelly for me, but Cold Plasma isn't that bad.

The smell isn't as bad as people make it out to be -- the benefits are far better. It is a slight 'fish' odor which disappears as the product absorbs into your skin. The recommend using a small amount - maybe the others are using way to much.

I looked on the Perricone website for samples. Perhaps they used to send out samples without a purchase, but at this time they do not. Sephora would give you a sample if you went to a brick and mortar store.
I've tried a small sample of this and it does indeed smell fishy. I'm not sure how anyone could miss it, since it is a very strong odor. However, it does help my skin a great deal, so I will put up with the smell. Someone else recommended using a moisturizer (citrus scented or another pleasantly scented one) to mask the offensive odor of the Cold Plasma.

You can go to Perricone's own site and order a free Cold Plasma sample. But buyer beware: After three days it wreaked such havoc on my sensitive skin that capillaries were breaking for two or three weeks even after I discontinued use of product. Dozens of unsightly broken capillaries now on both cheeks due to the use of this product. Those are irreparable. So please Be very careful.

The Cold Plasma doesn't have a horrible smell at all. There are a couple of other products that definitely do though. I have never seen sample sizes available anywhere. The only time I have ever gotten sample sizes is once in a while when I buy a full size product they will send a sample of something with it. That's the only time I've seen it though. I have been using most of the Perricone MD line for over a year now and my skin definitely has improved by leaps and bounds! I love it, despite a couple of products that have bad smells. You just hold your nose, and put on the next one (which usually smells much better! ha)

I disagree that there is a horrible smell. I smell cucumbers, mellons and tin. The product is very effective on tone, clarity, firmness, lifting, brightening and refining of the skin. It must be used on freshly cleansed skin before using any other treatment or moisturizer. You can get a good sized sample at Sephora and most people notice an improvement within a couple of days use. I also highly recommend the eye cream. Again, both the face and eye creams are treatment creams so you still need a moisturizer and SPF.

Question
Does DMAE contain mercury?
I have to wonder the fact that this product smells like fish does it mean that it contains mercury. Not to be paranoid, but they say that too much ingestion of mercury can cause cancer...can the same be said for slathering it on your face twice a day? I know this fish smell is the DMAE, and I am not sure what is in that. I suppose only an MD can answer this question...or I would just appreciate any advice on whether this product really works after you give it a little time, because the fish smell is really awful (sorry).

I have not read anything linking Dr. Perricone's products to mercury, but I have read plenty on how his products contain nanoparticles. I loved this product when I got a sample of it, and when I googled it, a lot of information came up. Nanoparticles are extremely tiny particles that can travel throughout your body. There isn't too much information on this yet, and you will not get it from a store, but if you are interested you may want to google it. There are tons of articles arguing over the risk factors of this technology.

I did some research on DMAE & Mercury. there has been a highly discredited British study of several years ago, linking INGESTED DMAE processed with machinery using mercury to Autism that the anti-vaccine crusaders have been using and that has caused the re-appearance of formerly eradicated childhood diseases like Whooping Cough, and measles, There is NO link to TOPICAL DMAE and NO studies linking TOPICAL DMAE to any kind of mercury poisoning. You would have to EAT the jar to have ill effects .The Zinc Gluconate, and ceatryl alchohol among other ingredients would be far more harmful to ingest. Nutritionists DO advise against combining Perricone's Presciption vitamins AND his diet, which is considered to be too low on carbohydrates (fruits and vegetables) and high on Omega 3's like Salmon to be healthy & balanced. They agree with his prohibitions against tobacco, alchohol, caffeine, white sugar, and sun exposure.

This is perfect for your skin. I am in the same age bracket with similar concerns. It is so lightweight almost a serum gel texture and goes right into your skin. It helps to balance my oily areas while keeping my skin smooth, comfortable, lineless, and healthy looking. I don't have to wear foundation unless I want to. I have been using this since mid September 2010 and I have already been accused of having something done. It is not heavy at all.

I use Perricone products with DMAE and really don't notice a fish smell at all. If the products you are using are Perricone, I would find it unbelievable that any of his creams contain mercury, based upon the controversy surrounding that substance and the harmful effects of exposure. Dr. Perricone is a real MD Dermatologist and interned at a hospital where I used to live. You can always call the manufacturer of the product and ask them if the one you are using contains Mercury, however. That would be your best bet. Or, find the manufacturer's web page and send an e-mail. I always have luck getting responses to e-mail inquiries.

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.

Yes -- a lot of acne, rosacea, and other inflammatory skin conditions are caused by a combination of dietary factors and ingredients in the other products you put on your skin (e.g., makeup or other skincare). I had terrible cystic acne and rosacea in conjunction with hypothyroidism during my 30s that just wouldn't be cured by prescription medications (and I tried all of them) -- but following Perricone's recommendations for dietary changes, adding in supplements, and using his skincare products completely cured my skin. (Also: I had to learn what ingredients to avoid in makeup and other skin products - like benzyl paraben, petrolatum, propylene glycol, alcohols, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate; you should also avoid alpha hydroxy acids, retinoids and exfoliants if you have acne or sensitive skin, because they're very harsh). People now compliment me on the youthfulness and clarity of my skin(!). I continue to use Perricone products; the only other products I use for skincare or makeup are in the Korres line, which is all-natural and doesn't contain the irritants listed above.

To really see the effect of a product, try it on one half of your face for several days in a row, and keep using your current product on the other side. If you see a positive difference, you'll know the product works for you.

There shouldn't be any cross-reaction, if that's what you're concerned about, but I'd recommend switching from your retinoids to a gentler regiment that you can use for years without risk. Retin-A can cause sensitivity, whether as pills or in topical form, and you will probably find after using Perricone's products that you don't need to use retinoids or alpha or beta hydroxy acids, which can also be harsh on skin.

I would call the Perricone customer service people to ask this question...it is an awesome comforting product in my experience, but they can probably advise you if it helps/hurts.

I believe you would be safe wearing the CP during the day. Most of the time Retin A is applied at night so I wouldn't put the CP on I would just wear the Retin A solo then.

is this a moisturizer?
Or is it just a treatment cream? Do you need to apply moisturizer after using this product? I have very dry skin!

This is a treatment but I don't feel like I need a moisturizer because I have combination skin.

This in fact is not only a treatment but a booster to all other products making them more effective, it accelerates the effectiveness of the other treatments. Used alone very effective, used with other Perricone Treatments Extremely effective. NOT a moisturizer, but for some with oilier skin this would be enough!.

It will give your skin the hydration it needs! Loss of hydration is one of the 10 signs of aging this product addresses!

I use a moisturizer after this. This is what they list as a "treatment". I love it though! My skin is extra soft and smooth! :D

This is a treatment cream and you still do need a moisturizer. This product works great on clarity and tone of skin, lifting, firming, wrinkles, etc. It also brightens and refines the skin. Use this product on freshly cleansed skin before any other treatment or moisturizer.

Question
Moisturizer
Is this the best Perricone moisturizer for combination skin? I am 48 and am experiencing all the usual signs of aging such as redness, fine lines, enlarged pores, etc. I love Perricone products and have used the daily refinishing moisturizer in the past. Would I need an additional moisturizer and is this light enough for daytime use under makeup? Perricone now has so many products that I'm beginning to get confused and would like to use just one great moisturizer! Thanks for your help!

I personally don't feel this is very moisturizing at all. I use it and then apply my moisturizer over the Cold Plasma because Cold Plasma is supposed to boost or enhance the effects of any other product you layer over it and make it work better. So 'no' I don't think it is moisturizing enough to use by itself. Also, it does work great underneath makeup. I put on my Cold Plasma Face and Eye in the mornings and then apply a moisturizer with a sunscreen and then apply my primer and foundation and it works great--no balling up or flaking or anything like that.

This product does provide moisture and if your skin is not on the dry side, then it should work well as a day time moisturizer. I love the face finishing moisturizer, but Cold Plasma is in a league of its own. It is designed to address your skin's specific needs. You could always use the face finishing moisturizer at night on top of the Cold Plasma. They are an awesome combination.

It all depends on what your skin needs! You don't have to do an extra moisturizer if you don't want to! But if you choose to do so? your moisturizer will work much better!

During the day I use cleanser, serum prep, cold plasma face, cold plasma eye, vitamin C serum, advanced eye, lift, a dab of the tinted moisturizer mixed with a dab of the more than moisture spf 30. I don't use the moisturizer with these, this is plenty. I do use it at night, in place of the other 2 though. I'm over 40, and have the redness, fine lines, etc. and this has made a huge difference for me! I love their products! :D

This is not a moisturizer contrary to what some people think. It is a treatment cream that works on everything from lifting, firming, wrinkles, clarity and tone of skin. I've been using it for two months and the product does work but you still need a moisturized and SPF. Use this product before any other treatment or moisturizer. I highly recommend.

I use moisturizer over it. For we "women of a certain age" it's just not emolient enough for a moisturizer. But the difference it has made in my skin in just a few short weeks is amazing!
