Dr Perricone's SUPER Skincare I am outrageously excited by new skincare range SUPER, which launched in the UK this week. It’s a diffusion line from longtime skin guru Dr Perricone, who is known for looking after the faces of Hollywood’s finest. His primary range (called Perricone MD) is pretty pricey, and though it’s packed full of amazing antioxidants and super-anti-ageing whatnots I have never got along with it. It smells, rather strongly, I think, of fish. In the name of research, I have tried to persevere with the products, but I simply can’t get past the smell!

So imagine my delight when I heard that Perricone had introduced a younger, cheaper, nice-smelling alternative! The range is called SUPER and it’s already a bit of a hit stateside. “Inspired by nature, backed by science” the range aims to be as natural as possible whilst remaining effective and results-driven. Perricone has tried to avoid the inclusion of controversial chemicals and instead pack the formulas with high concentrations of ‘superfood-derived’ antioxidants.

I’m seeing great things for this range; even on appearance alone I love it more than the original line! I have a few things to test out and so I’ll be reporting back with my findings, but I can tell you that the ‘Hyper Hydrator’ (made with coconut water) feels and smells amazing, and I already know that the ‘Sun Kissed’ Tinted Moisturiser is going to be a favourite!

The SUPER range is priced from £14-£37 and is available at Boots online here: http://tidd.ly/c42dbf92 and larger Boots stores.

    Perricone’s products cause me to break out in a horrible reaction with small red bumps and burning/itching sensation. i’ve never had a reaction to a facial product before… :(

    Super range seems to be half price on Boots site at the moment, maybe they are stopping stocking it as quite a lot of it is out of stock. But if they still have what you use it’s worth stockpiling at that price!

    I have been using Super products for 3-4 weeks! my daughter was keen on their natural-fresh-non-toxic (?) ingredients. However, my face seems to be red and burning! I’m worried that now I may be having an allergic reaction to the sun protection that has zinc oxide in it! Feedback would be welcome!

    • Ruth says:

      @Roberta oooh! Which products exactly? Is there a helpline? Some people react to very specific things – it’s worth calling customer services and trying to figure it out! x

    I used some of the Perricone range when it first came out. It was nice but so expensive to buy. I recently used the Cold Plasma and it was so great but it smelt of fish . The smell went away after 20 minutes and i must say the overall effect was worth it.

    When im really tired i use the Ginger Mask. I use it every morning for just 3 MInutes and it awakens my skin and i get a rosy glow. The Detoxifying spray is also great and i use for one week a month to deep clean and detoxift my skin and pores. It also smells a bit unusual but it will make yo ureally glow and your pores get deep cleaned and all the months toxins are released from your skin . if i ever get a spot i spray lots onto the area to blast it.

    I have been using the 3-minute facial, great stuff! Good for busy girls who are on the go!

    such a pretty range but this will have to remain a fantasy rather than a reality. too posh for me xx

    A rep at my local Sephora tried to rope me into this line, which by all accounts looks and smells great! He gave me a few samples to try, but I was so disappointed after use. The apple serum made my skin break out horribly, but the worst thing? The melon eye cream! I had such a severe allergic reaction — my eyelids swelled up and burned terribly. I was honestly scared! I have no known allergies and I have never in my life responded to a product in that manner. Makes me feel the product isn’t as natural as it lets on…

    Hee hee, is anyone else chuckling childishly at the thought of super Hollywood celeb types faces smelling of fish?

  9. Sue says:

    DMAE is responsible for the fishy whiff – provides rapid lift and tightening of skin xx

    Oh, I haven’t really took any notice of this brand before. Sounds interesting. Will look forward to your reviews.

    Ruth I’m so glad you’re talking about this as I am so intrigued by the line! I have researched/read reviews on the products as well as trying several things out in store but don’t know which product I should jump in and buy first. Can’t wait to hear more feedback from you!

    I’ve been eyeing this line so I can’t wait to hear some reviews from you. Yay!

    Obsessed as I am by shiny new skin care products that promise amazing and magical things..I have been waiting…and waiting for Boots to announce when Super would be in stores…and they didn’t- I saw something vague in ES magazine, but nothing else- so thankyou for the link!…
    now I have to get down to Boots pronto…

  14. TheCosmeticCrave says:

    These sound lovely, I need a new skin cleanser I may have to try one from this range!

    Thanks for this Ruth, I had not tried any Perricone products being a bit on the extortionate side for me, but I did do his 3 day skin diet which was very successful and enjoyable although one needs to be a fan of salmon! Glad that there is a range a bit more affordable and more easily available.

  16. Style Souk says:

    Let me at it, let me at it…

    I have disliked products from Dr Perricone’s range but these sound lovely.

    Can’t wait to read your review of the tinted moisturiser.

    These sound really good! As i was reading through for some reason i kept thinking this is good but it’ll probably just be a semi expensive counterpart to a super expensive range and then i saw that it ranges for 14 – 37 and i was pleasantly surprisef! I think im going to try some of this stuff out! X
