Over they years I have used many of Dr. Perricone's products. My eldest son used to refer to him as the "Salmon man" as I have his book and in it he writes about foods that are anti-aging that we should all eat and his one big thing is salmon.... wild Alaskan salmon, not the farmed kind. There is a picture of him on the front of the book that my son thought resembled a salmon and his logic for this was that he had probably eaten alot of salmon and was starting to look like one. ... it did make me smile. No disrespect Dr. Perricone, just the observations of a 10 yr old boy. Anyway, I love his book and I love what he has to say in it about how to keep our bodies and skin in good shape as we get older. I have lived my life by most of what he has written about and it was good to see I was on the right path. I also believe his products do make a difference. So when I decided that I needed something lighter than a foundation and just abit more than a tinted moisturiser to wear everyday I started trying to find something. (I caught sight of my face in full sun one day and noticed that foundation was starting to look too heavy on my face - even though I only applied it thru the middle and out to the edges, it looked like it was caked in all my pores. I was horrified!). I knew a tinted moisturiser wasn't the answer as it wouldn't even out the pigmentation that just will not seem to fade . I needed something that would look light and natural with only a hint of coverage to even out my skin. It's funny how the universe then sends along what we need and afew days later I was reading a magazine and I came across this product. I immediately went out and found it and it's perfect. Problem solved.... Light enough to look natural , yet enough coverage to take the edge off the pigmentation. Once again he has come up with a great product - no more embarrassing moments in full sun.
His book by the way is called The Perricone Prescription if you feel like reading it. And Mecca Cosmetica stocks NV Perricone.
Have a good week. :)

I believe that women are beautiful at any age , and being older myself, am constantly on the look out for products that will help the skin retain its glow and beauty. From a very young age I have paid attention to my skin and have always gone looking for new, innovative - or even tried and true products that make a difference. I take inspiration from my friends and women I meet in my work.
