When seeking the best face moisturizer, there's a lot to keep in mind. For starters, it should have potent, active ingredients, especially if you want the moisturizer to reduce the signs of aging. It should also lock in moisture, improve tone and texture, and encourage a subtle overall glow. Thanks to Perricone MD's acid-infused formula that uses a potent blend of antioxidants, this shopper-loved moisturizer checks all of those boxes.
The Face Finishing & Firming Moisturizer is a Perricone MD classic for good reason. The rich cream is packed with Perricone MD's specific blend of ingredients, incorporating alpha lipoic acid to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and leave the skin plump and hydrated. The moisturizer also has a light rose scent that isn't overwhelming or irritating to the skin.
"This lightweight, rose-scented moisturizer hydrates and visibly plumps the skin, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without leaving the skin feeling greasy," board-certified dermatologist Dr. Marisa Garshick tells InStyle.

Dr. Garshick says that the moisturizer also contains glycerin, which serves as a humectant to draw moisture in. There is also kukui seed oil, which she says is "rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, improving overall skin appearance. It can be used once or twice daily and is gentle enough to apply to the face and neck."
Shoppers agree that the formula is extremely effective. "I'll buy it 100 times over," one shopper wrote. "I love everything about it — I used Philosophy moisturizer forever, but it wasn't doing it for me anymore. This makes my skin look great and feels lightweight. I got complaints on my skin immediately. The smell is just a bonus!"
Another customer says, "I've been using this after the serum, and my skin has been very happy. It's lightweight enough that I will be able to use it in the warmer months."
A final shopper says that "This is a must for me! I have been using this product for over a year. It hydrates instantly and makes my face feel fantastic. I always try to buy it at Ulta when it is on sale."
For smoother, hydrated, and firmer skin, add the Face Finishing & Firming Moisturizer to your skincare routine — just be prepared to want another bottle when you're done with the first.
