Review: Perricone Super O-Mega Moisture Cream

I've been using this O-Mega Moisture Cream from Dr Nicholas Perricone's new range, Super, for a couple of months now, and I'm absolutely convinced by its powers.  A simple cream designed to keep the skin moist and hydrated, it contains chia, a herb cultivated for its seeds, which are high in omega 3 fatty acids.  The texture is a regular cream, reasonably thick and emollient, which takes a fair bit of working into the skin before it's absorbed.  

Unusually for a thick, hydrating cream, though, this product leaves no residue on the skin whatsoever.  The skin is left feeling soft and velvety, and unusually plumped up - the skin texture after use is a strange mix of the skin feeling bare to the touch as if no product had been applied, but totally comfortable and elastic from within.  I rarely feel that my skin feels tight and dry, and so it's odd to feel the difference in the comfort level of the skin before and after using this product.

The cream also smells gloriously of marzipan, which certainly motivates me to apply it morning and night.  A small amount goes a long way, and I expect to get three months out of my jar before it runs dry.  This is going to be an absolute winter essential for me - skin feels hydrated and protected all day, even in cold weather, and despite the richness, it's not caused any congestion or spots in my sometimes irritated skin.  It's also telling that I've had my skin analysed twice at events in the past month - and both times I've been told that my skin is extremely well hydrated and elastic, which is a break from the norm for me.

Super O-Mega Moisture Cream costs £29.50 for a 30ml jar, and is definitely going on my repurchase list.  You'll find it at Boots, both in store and online.
