This products smells amazing but is pretty inefficient for dry skin.

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Max Complexion Correction Pads

on 11/12/2017 5:36:00 PM


Bought this product from Sephora for about $55.
I came in looking for an exfoliator for acne prone skin and they suggested the max complexion correction pads.
At first, I saw no difference in my skin and still received occasional breakouts (used it 2-4 times a week) I decided to continue using this product for about a month to see if I'd work but recently my face has been very dry. I tried moisturizing, not wearing any makeup and everything. My face was so dry it started to peel! After some research, I figured that it was maybe the max complexion pads drying me out! I have stopped using this product for a week now and my skin is no longer dry and back to normal. Personally, I do not recommend this product as it is expensive and did not help my acne or skin in anyway.

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask


I've been using this for 2 years now so I'm finally ready to give my true and honest opinion. I bought my first jar of the PTR rose stem cell mask because I wanted something that was unique. It's not your typical hydrating mask, it's a multi-task and innovative mask and that's why I keep repurchasing it no matter how much my skincare routine keeps changing. The texture is fabulous, I love how bouncy it is and the gel texture and the packaging makes this a very good travel product. I use this 3 days a week,(Friday,Saturday and Sunday )as an overnight mask. This mask gives me amazing results but only if I put it as an overnight mask, that's when I start seeing powerful results! My skin looks radiant, plump and I also want to say that it helps a lot with sagging. I lost a massive amount of weight last year and my skin looked a bit sagging and fatigue, so when I started using this mask it solved those things plus I feel my skin is more firm and because I use it 3 times a week as an overnight mask, my skin looks amazing and then in the weekday when I put on makeup everyday I can see great results underneath my makeup. It's worth the money and if I had to recommend one mask to someone to buy, then I would definitely say this one. I think that this mask deserves more hype!

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel

on 11/8/2017 8:19:00 PM


This product absolutely works! I get a lot of dry flakes from retin-A, and no physical scrub / home microdermabrasion has ever been able to get rid of them (even the one from PTR). This product quickly removes all of the flakes on my skin, leaving it smooth and primed for makeup application with zero irritation.

I tried the E.L.F. version of this product and didn't think it worked as well as the PTR. Fortunately I was able to buy a full-sized tube of the PTR product for 25% off on Jet.com. Although the product is pricey, I only use a small amount a few times a week, so I imagine the tube will last a long time. I will always have this product with me, whether at home or on vacation.

BB Cream -Peter Thomas Roth -CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Complexion Corrector

on 10/25/2017 11:14:00 AM


I didn't want to like this as much as I did, primarily because PTR is an overpriced brand with waaay overblown claims, nonexistent or minimal antioxidants in their products, and too many jars (which renders actives null, as well as a convenient medium for bacteria/viral growths). I got it half-priced and if I found it half-priced again, I would buy it.

The application is smooth, the coverage even and it doesn't fade during all day wear. The amount of physical UVA-blocking sunscreen was the selling point for me. I use it from face to neck and upper chest depending on the shirt I'm wearing, with a colorless sunscreen applied everywhere else. The tinting and sunscreen are the only selling points, as it doesn't contain any antioxidants or skin-repairing ingredients; nevertheless, a strong sunscreen is the only defense against aging, wrinkles & discolorations.

Ignore any and all foundation/BB/CC labels. These are not FDA-regulated even slightly and used at the manufacturer's whim rather than based on anything. It's all the same stuff with another label du jour to get you to buy it thinking it's different somehow.

Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer

on 10/19/2017 8:41:00 PM


Bought this when I ran out of Drunk Elephant Glycolic serum. I had researched and there are so many conflicting sites I let the Sephora saleswoman recommend a glycolic acid and she recommended this, which is 25% cheaper than the Drunk Elephant. She said I wouldn't find a higher GA concentration (although DE was 12%). I want to use a glycolic acid as it appears the holy trinity of aging skin care is hyaluronic acid (which I use in a Neutrogena serum in the AM), retinol (Neutrogena Anti Wrinkle serum at night) and glycolic acid (this, now, mixed with the Neutrogena Anti-Wrinkle serum, everything topped off with L'ccitane's Divine cream).
I can't give the product a higher rating because I don't see any difference - but then I never do. I don't feel any tingling,even after applying it after a good scrub with a Clairisonic, and I have never found anything (including prescription retinol from the dermtologist) that has ever even begun to fade the freckles and sun damage, one lousy "age spot" in particular. But I also know that much of the benefit of using these products won't be evident for years when, hopefully, I won't look even older...it amazes me that those in the 20-40 age range see a difference using these things.

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads

on 10/17/2017 12:51:00 PM


My first glycolic pads and a huge success. I've got reactive skin with adult acne caused by cosmetics, so was super careful at first. I used a pad once a week, then twice a week and finally got down to everyday use. Following advice from other MUA reviewers, I cut each pad into two, so had a supply for 3 months. No breakouts, clean and smooth skin, wrinkles diminished a bit - I loved it. Now I've been using P50V toner from Biologique Recherche and though I like it a lot, I would like to buy those pads again. Unfortunately not easily available where I live now.

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Irish Moor Mud

This detoxifying mask feels nice but takes effort to rinse off. Afterwards it irritated & clogged my skin. It contains silicone & paraffin. There has to be better more gentle masks out there.

Cleansers -Peter Thomas Roth -Camu Camu Power C x 30 Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Powder

I don't want to jinx myself but this is my HG cleanser right now! I hope it never stops working for me! I love that you mix it with water yourself so that the vitamin c is potent and stable in powder form right up until you're ready to use it. Camu Camu contains a lot of vitamin C, and I can definitely see a difference in how clear and glowy my skin is since I started using this.

I wash my makeup off with Neutrogena Naturals Makeup Removing Cleanser, then shake a bit of this powder into my hand while my face and hands are still damp, add a bit of water and mix it up and apply it in circles to my face. Depending on how much water you add, it can be a thicker scrub because of the gritty particles in it, or it can be a lighter cleanser. I love that you can customize it to whatever your skin needs! If I have congested pores on my nose, I use it as a scrub and go over my nose a few extra times and it helps clear the blackheads.

I've tried a few other powder cleansers before (Imake Skincare Brightening Exfoliating Powder and Clinique Vitamin C Powder Cleanser) but this one is definitely my favorite. I have oily, dehydrated skin that usually breaks out a lot if I use anything with the wrong ingredients but my skin loves this!

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Cucumber Gel Masque

on 10/4/2017 6:17:00 AM


This mask does nothing when left on for only 10 minutes. It is supposed to hydrate but I see no difference after using it. When I slept in this mask, I found it gave better results than only leaving 10 minutes. But still, it's not worth it.

Mascara -Peter Thomas Roth -Lashes To Die For The Mascara

on 9/28/2017 11:46:00 AM

Update: This is a tubing mascara. Comes off in shreds. Who knew?

I never thought about buying a treatment mascara but it makes sense since I have been using latisse for nearly 2 years. My lashes are now long and thick and even a little curled. Totally 180 from where I started. So if I can find a mascara that gives my lashes a little extra treatment during the day in my mascara I will try it.

So this mascara is supposed to have the PTR serum in it that it is his version of lash growth serum. And the mascara is good, I get length, volume, and great wearability. No clumping, smudging or flaking. It is a little hard to take off so I do have to use a makeup remover and cannot just rely on my cleanser. (Tried that and had residue left the next day.) Also leaves my lashes feeling soft.

I love the brush. It is a narrow rubber bristle brush, perfect for my small eyes. It is like Bare Minerals Flawless Definition brush. At Sephora this runs for $22.00 but I found for cheap on Jet.com, and I will keep my eye out for Beauty Brand's sale.

I don't know about long-term effects yet. Will update when I do.

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Professional 3% Retinoid Plus

on 9/20/2017 10:19:00 PM


I've used 0.025 Rx Gel, PTR PM Fusion, PC 1%Retinol Booster and The Ordinary 2% - this beats them all hands down! Feels oily going on but within a couple of minutes sinks in and is dry. In only a week of every night use my skin is smoother and pores are refined. The bottle could be improved to a closed system and wow is it expensive (sign up on the PTR website for a discount though) but I am loving it so far.
EDIT 10/10/17 - returned to Sephora. The amount of silicon was just too much for my poor skin to handle, caused bumpiness, clogged pores, etc.

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -clinical peel and reveal dermal resurfacer

on 9/18/2017 11:33:00 PM

This is excellent as a 1 - 2× a week product. I was swapping out a retinol vitamin c product every week with a glycolic product and I just kept breaking out. With this peel, I can use AHA once a week and use retinol all the other nights. Haven't broken out since and stubborn acne scars are disappearing!

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Acne-Clear Invisible Dots

on 9/16/2017 6:22:00 AM


I am in love, love, love with most all of Peter Thomas Roth items, I could open a small PTR store but I won't sell his items because they are the best that I have tried. I have occasional acne breakouts, maybe 2-3 every couple of months, so I thought this would be better than doing the whole acne treatment regimen. I purchased this for about $40. And yes I recently broke out with one pimple on my chin, Grrr, I hate this, I cleansed my face very good and use the Witch Hazel Toner to continue to keep my face clean. The dots are almost invisible, so you can see them a little, and they are very thin, which is good, I placed one of the larger dots on the pimple, which is almost invisible to wear, which was great because I could wear them outside and no one could see it. I left the dot on all day long and it worked pretty well. No stickiness, no smell, nothing to complain about at all. My pimple did go down a little the first day, but I had to wear another one at night because it wasn't really gone. The next day when I woke up I even forgot that I still had it on because you can't see it, and I was very impressed with these dots, the pimple wasn't completely gone but it was very, very much smaller, PERFECT!!! I say that you guys should try these you will be happy, but if a pimple has already broken open I say don't use this, only when you are first getting signs of one and this is the best... Yes, it is a bit pricey, but hey you do get 72 of them which isn't bad, and YES, of course, I would always purchase this again and again.

Peter Thomas RothUn-Wrinkle Turbo Face Serum
My skin actually looked duller after using this . I believe this product draws the sun to your face. This may need to be followed up with a sunblock
