Perricone MD No Rinse Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment Review

I’m someone who stocks up on micellar water because I use it every morning and evening without fail as a pre-cleanse. As lazy as I am, I still love to double cleanse but a good swipe of micellar water really helps to get the bulk of makeup off my face before I give it a good scrub. I’ve been trying out a number of different types of micellar water’s and so far out of 4 that I’ve purchased, there’s only one that I would repurchase.

This first step is such an important part of my cleansing routine and I’ve done some pretty hardcore research into which are good products and which are great ones, but of course I’d still need to try them out on me. So armed with all this knowledge (and none of the cash! ha) when I sat browsing and picking my monthly Love Me Beauty Box choices, I almost fell off my seat when I saw Perricone MD Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment was available to try.
Perricone MD Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment review

The cleansing treatment is a bright blue product that is said to stand out in the skincare world, not just for it’s looks but it is a-mazing as a no water cleanser.

Since the bottle didn’t come in a box and the only directions for use were “Dr Perricone recommends saturating a cotton pad and smoothing liberally all over your face in the morning and evening. No rinsing is needed after the application.” I took to Google to see what the brand actually had to say about the product.

Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment is a no-rinse formula that deeply cleanses makeup and skin-aging debris as it gently exfoliates and conditions, leaving an instantly smooth and radiant appearance. Paired with Micellar molecules and powerful Blue Plasma technology, this gentle cleanser works to trap skin pollutants, unclog impurities from deep within pores and allows for optimal delivery of actives. Gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin, the treatment hydro-fuses skin with nutrient-enriched water and other key ingredients that include Salmon Egg Enzyme and Copper. Skin feels soft to the touch and looks smooth, fresh and radiant.

On further investigation I found that there are 3 main (super) ingredients that separate this product from the average cleanser.

A bio-specific exfoliating agent designed to remove dead skin cells without irritation.

A cluster of molecules that attract and trap debris. Composed of a hydrophilic end, which is attracted to water, and a lipophilic end, attracted to grease and oils, they work to effectively target impurities.

Historically used as a healing agent that calms and soothes the skin, copper repairs and promotes skin health and contributes to the formula’s delicate blue hue.

In all honesty, by this time I felt pretty excited to see whether this would actually work. I grabbed a cotton pad and applied it. There is a faint fragrance, nothing too strong. It smells faintly medicinal but it’s barely there so not an issue at all for me. The first thing I noticed was that unlike a makeup removing micellar water, this product has a thicker gel like consistency (due to the salmon egg enzyme). One quick wipe and it removed a lot of makeup. I used as much as I would normally use and I was very impressed. I have to say, I’m not sure I’d feel fully comfortable using this as a standalone product to clean my face in the evening but for one off’s and minimal makeup days when you’re shattered, it could work.

As you all know, I have sensitive skin and the blue plasma cleansing treatment removed unwanted debris and impurities without causing any irritation to my skin at all. I did notice that unlike a lot of other micellar products this cleansing treatment removes dead skin too and so it leaves your skin looking more even and less congested (thanks to the copper!). For me, as I used this more and more I couldn’t make my mind up about it. The sides of my nose usually feel clogged up by the end of the day but whilst I’ve been using this treatment the sides of my nose doesn’t look flaky/bumpy and my makeup sits so much better around my nose. My skin wasn’t left feeling tight or dry either which is rare for me but at the same time, my skin wasn’t feeling clean. There is a slight residue left behind so I do feel like I want to wash my face properly after using it.

Another slight downside is that a bottle of 118ml is £36 which in all honesty is quite steep. I’m a big believer in the idea that you don’t have to spend a lot on products but I also believe that you get what you pay for. Skincare has always been something that I’m happy to invest in, I mean you only get one skin after all! Since I’m super lazy when it comes to skincare, in theory this product is perfect for me. It takes away a lot of the effort and is amazing for those days in between exfoliation to remove excess build up of clogged pores.However, I have to stress that I only use this product as a micellar water and NOT as a replacement for washing my face.

This could also be perfect for travelling, when you’re not always near a bathroom but need a spruce up.

Would I purchase this product? I would if I was going travelling.
Would I recommend it? I’m not sure anymore, the idea that people might not wash their faces properly and just use this bothers me.
