We all know there are tons of beauty and skin care products available today, bombarding women into trying them to reduce the appearance of aging and make their skin look and feel better. Before using any product, many women turn to a site like this to find out what others think of it. This review will focus on the Cold Plasma product, manufactured by Perricone MD. Is it worth the money? Does it do what it says it will?
The idea behind Cold Plasma by Perricone MD is that it uses cold to freeze the ten signs of aging, through the biochemical individuality of the user. While this sounds nice, it seems those who live in cold climates would have this benefit without having to buy into such a product. The product contains a high concentration of vitamin C which is known for its benefits to the skin, including: getting rid of free radicals, enhancing the effects of sunscreen, breaking down melanin, and triggering the production of collagen to improve the firmness of skin. Peptides also in the formula have been shown to increase collagen production, as well.
- The product contains several ingredients that are known to be effective against the signs of aging.
- The ingredients list is available online for those who want to find out what is in it before making the purchase.
- The price is horrid, at $150 for a 1 ounce jar. While the ounce will go a long way, it’s still a very expensive product for the majority of the people it is targeted for.
- The product is sold in a jar, which could break down the vitamin C and other good ingredients with the repeated exposure to air.
- The product does not provide any sunscreen protection, as many anti aging products do. Since many products make the skin more susceptible to damage from the sun, it is important for them to feature a sunscreen to counteract it.
The Bottom Line
The whole “biochemical individuality” idea of the user’s skin selecting and utilizing only what it needs seems a little far fetched and more like a marketing gimmick, but hey, if it works, great. Since at least 10 to 15% of the formula is vitamin C, we think it’s an awfully expensive product, considering how easy it is to drink some orange juice or pop a multi-vitamin. Without a sunscreen in it, it may put the skin at more risk than it is worth in the end.
