My experience

Where did I get it: free sample from Sephora.

How long did I use it: one week.

How do I apply it: at night, after washing my face with Olay Sensitive Foaming Face Wash, I apply Super Night Recharge with Red Algae only (OK, I know my steps are too simple for a woman but I don’t like to put much on my skin).

Results: first, I notice the product is quite fragrant but the smell is completely gone after about two minutes. After each use, I immediately feel my skin is soothed. The second morning, my skin is brightener, younger, less red, more even, and my pores look smaller. The product is probably suitable for all skin types because, after applying it, I feel nothing on my skin, not very moisturizing. But the second day, my skin looks very hydrated but not oily.

My complaint: Hi, Dr. Perricone, the astaxanthin you have particularly highlighted is at the bottom of the ingredient list. I hope it is not as little as how much those caviar skin care products actually have caviar. 🙂

Bottom line: recommended.

Products with similar beneficial ingredients

  1. Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Mattifying Concentrate Serum, for Normal to Very Oily Skin
  2. Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, for Normal to Very Dry Skin
  3. Perricone MD Advanced Eye Area Therapy

I have used the second and third, which are very good. I personally see more positive results from Super Night Recharge with Red Algae.

By the way, I am adopting this new style of reviewing. Please let me know how I can improve.
