SUPER by Dr. Perricone

Hello all! I have been so awful at updating this. But, since the wedding is done...oh yeah, got married! Anyway, since that is done, I have much more time to update this much more frequently. Hopefully I stick with that, ha ha! Anyway, I am going to write today about my experience with Dr. Perricone's new product line, SUPER.

First I will say that I had a hell of a time getting this at Sephora. I wanted a set, because if I am going to give this line a try, I would like to try a few things. It was sold out in stores and online. OK, good sign. I then went to the direct website, getsuper.com. They offered many different sets. I choose this one:
This set came with O-Mega Moisture, Bright Eyed, and Sweet Clean cleanser.

Lets start with the moisturizer-
I really like this one because even though it's for dry skin, it doesn't feel heavy what so ever! The active ingredient in this one is Chia.
Chia delivers more Omega-3 than flax or fish, satisfying skin’s craving for moisture. It definitely complements my skin after an OCM wash.
Second, is the eye cream, Bright Eyed-
This is a cream that brightens and firms around the eyes. Now, although it's only been about a week since I have been using this, I have yet to see any "brightness". But, that is to be expected this early on in using a product. My eyes surely need the brightening, so lets hope it does! It does, however, firm. And, its great as a primer for my eyeshadow primer! Let me explain... When I put a primer on my eyelids, it doesn't glide as well as I would like usually. I don't normally care since I will be putting eyeshadow over it, but now with this new cream, it makes everything glide evenly, without creasing the primer or shadow. Hopefully I am making sense here! Anyway, active ingredient is Melon. Melon is a skin-saving superfood, who knew!?

Lastly, the skin cleanser. I have not used this yet since I am using cleansers very rarely now that I have discovered OCM. I am waiting to finish up my Dr. Perricone cleanser that I am currently using before I start this one, but here are the stats.
Sweet Clean Cleanser 
A gentle cleanser that wipes out dirt and makeup
Packed with Acai, an exotic antioxidant from the Amazon
Ideal for all skin types.

Now, I have to discuss my issue with the shipping. It was not the best experience. The order was placed before NYE, and did not arrive until last week. When I emailed asking why A. there was no record of my purchase on my account online, and B. why I had no notification about when my order would ship, the response I got was "everyone was on vacation. Sorry." Ehh, I get that NYE is a holiday, but really? A WEEK OFF? And no notice to people who have purchased items online? Not cool. Also, the day I received the package was the day my card was "officially" charged. Meaning, almost 3 weeks later, they charged my card the total amount, when I thought I had been charged immediately after placing the order. Sure, I had the funds, BUT, what if I didn't? Anyway, some things to look out for if you try this product out. Will I purchase from them again? Yes, because I will always sacrifice bad customer service for good skin.

OH! Did I mention I got murrried?!?!
