I remember liking Patricia Wexler's MMPi Skin Regenerating Serum, especially the consistency of it. Slick with a non-greasy "silicone" finish, I loved that this "serum" wasn't a liquid and it had a "powder" finish to it that seemed like a great foundation...for well,....foundation. I couldn't help but also love the bright pink, slightly fuchsia hue. It went on clear but I liked that it had a bright, cheery color as if it was "play" makeup!
Fast forward a few years and I found myself in a Bath & Body Works store at Village Pointe in Omaha and rediscovered my "old" friend. They were having a special sale: buy any Patricia Wexler product for $35+ and this normally $150 3.4 ounce Patricia Wexler MMPi Skin Regenerating Serum is only $45. Seriously, it wasn't hard to pull the trigger on that deal.
It was the same giant sized tub that my friend had given me years earlier. All I remembered was that I liked the consistency, that it didn't do anything terrible to my skin and that I would use it very sparingly as I wanted to save it.
For reasons I can only attribute to being a "magazine editor cheapskate" (it was hard to actually buy beauty products when so many items were available for free by asking a beauty editor for something or a dollar at the beauty sales), I had never bought the Patricia Wexler serum again even though I liked it.
I'm now on my third purchased jar of Patricia Wexler serum. I am still a cheapskate, though; I bought all three jars during the $45 special promos that go on at Bath & Body Works.
The Patricia Wexler MMPi Skin Regenerating Serum is worth every penny (even if you have to pay the full price of $150). For those of you who like primers, this really takes the place of a primer and a moisturizer for those days that you don't want the heaviness of a lotion. It truly has an amazing powdery finish that is smooth but not greasy. And that bright pink color is definitely a cheery way to start the day!
