Cleansers -Peter Thomas Roth -Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel

I bought this product based on the reviews as an anti aging cleanser. Luckily I only bought the 1 oz size because something in this product made me break out in a raised rash on my forehead and cheeks (which happen to be the dry parts of my combo skin). It actually looked like it gave me a case of Rosacea! Will not be using this again as my skin is way to sensitive obviously. Never had a problem with AHA or Glycolic acid before.

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -40% Triple Acid Peel

on 6/21/2017 11:25:00 AM

I bought this last year because I was looking for a "peel" that didn't actually peel off your skin. I watched a youtube video of someone (I think it was a male) using it every week to show results. His skin was brighter in contrastment from week 1 to week 12 and his acne marks also faded about 30%. He said he didn't see much of a difference, but I did. His video seemed very honest and as a skeptic I believed he was not getting money to do the video. I hate acne marks and have tried a lot of products to lighten them and nothing seemed to work. So that is what made me want to buy this product, I'd take 30% over nothing anyday. Oh, and just FYI the ph of the product is 3.50.

This product does not sting me at all, and I too wondered if it was even working. I used it once a week as directed, but found I did not need a whole ampule for my face, so only used half and kept the rest in a plastic bag to use next week. Even half an ampule was usually more than enough for my face. I don't think the ingredients because useless in a week or anything...seemed alright. I left the ampule on for about a half hour each time. I used my fingers to apply, the pads just waste product. (I kept them to remove nail polish with though and they worked great.) By week 24 when I was all done I had my acne marks about 75% lighter than from when I started. I've had some of those acne marks for years. I do believe it did a decent job as an exfoliater as well.

I just repurchased it again for a second time after a few months of a break because I have some new acne mark occurrences I'd like to fade. I'm going to try stretching the ampules to see if I can get in about 30 applications. I think this product gets a bad reputation because it isn't marketed well for what it actually is. It's definitely isn't a real peel or even close, and you definitely don't get quick results. Still, it helped me considerably, but it was slow going. I'll consider finding a different product to see if there is something cheaper or more effective. But there is a chance I might go back to it someday for a third time.

I got a trial size of this from Sephora, and I really enjoy it. The small size has 5-8 uses in it.
The mask truly scrubs your face, it tingles a little, but it just means that the mask is working. When I wash it off, my face feels very fresh and clean.
The packaging is nice, very sturdy plastic. I like that it's see-through, so I can see how much I have left.
I will totally buy this again, although the price is steep!

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

on 6/14/2017 10:14:00 PM

First I've tried a sample and I thought that we could be friends, but...

Pros:
- does not accentuate dry patches
- goes on nicely if applied with fingers (brush and sponge leave strokes)
- can be layered

Cons:
- it never dries, no matter how much setting powder I put on top (I can make my face turning white and CC cream appear cakey, but it won't set!)
- it sinks into fine lines, it moves from high points of the face into low points
- I've got more redness and some small pimples on my forehead (perhaps due to vitamin C, I've usually intolerant to it, what was I thinking....)
- it's nearly impossible to match your skin tone. First I've tested Light/Medium, it was too dark, so I've ordered Light/Medium and Light. When Light/Medium came it was actually matching my skin tone, so I guess there is certain shade inconsistency. My sample looked very tan while an actual product that I got wasn't. Light shade is very pinky and ashy. Blending two together doesn't give a good result.

I really need a good BB / CC cream, so I continue my research. Won't recommend.

Note: I am a sucker for all things Peter Thomas Roth. I have nearly every product he makes. I'm not sure this product works since I don't use it regularly, but maybe it does since it kind of balls off, so my skin is getting some exfoliating at the worst. Other MUA reviewers think this peeling gel is gimmicky. That might be true.


Cleansers -Peter Thomas Roth -Irish Moor Mud Purifying Cleansing Gel

This is a black colored cleanser with lactic acid and salicylic acid in it. I have combination skin and this leaves my skin feeling clean but also dry and tight feeling. It actually looks like my constantly clogged pores are improving adding this into my routine. Also this has a mild, barely there scent which I prefer. I think this is better suited for oily skin types rather than my combination skin type.

The first time I used it, it stung so badly I thought the mask was eating my face alive. I washed it off after literally one minute. However, to my surprise, my face felt so soft after that, I thought I would give it another go, masochist that I am. A few days later, I tried it again, bore the pain for 3 minutes and gosh - the results were simply spectacular. My complexion was baby smooth and flawless! So I used this about twice a week and the results were amazing. Then I got impatient and used it two days in a row (flawed logic: if my face looks this good using it twice a week, it would look twice as good if I used it every day). BIG mistake. I broke out in acne the next day and the zits didn't subside till a week later.

The lesson for this mask is this: It's great but you really have to adjust the usage according to your skin type. For sensitive skins, I recommend using this twice a week and most and building it up slowly. I also find that if I'm suffering from acne, using this makes it worse, so I give it a rest. What I dislike is the packaging. The jar packaging is unhygienic and causes the ingredients to lose potency over time, which is why I find that as time goes on, I can actually leave this mask on for longer without it smarting too much. Which is both good and bad news, I guess.

It is a gel with minute amount of actives. A pass for me..


Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream

foto

I applied this and it feels like the texture of a silicone primer, but it dissolves into the skin seconds after you apply. It feels very light yet gives me the hydration my combination skin needs. It might not be hydrating enough for drier skin types as it didn't do much for my flaky patches. It hasn't caused me breakouts and helped me improve the texture of my skin. What I don't like at all is the packaging, it might contaminate the product, I'd encourage the brand to change it.

I"m not normally one to fall for super trendy names and jump on a band wagon of any kind but... I received a sample of this with a cosmetics order and holy sh*t was I ever amazed by this product. "Water Drench Cloud Cream" is a perfect description of how this feels. It's creamy but light at the same time, really quite unique. When you apply it to you face it feels like water if water could have a thicker consistency but still like water. It is not sticky or tacky at all. Super hydrating, very very comfortable. Skin feels plump and happy. I applied it morning and night for 3 days in a row and when I ran out of my sample I was actually sad. I have got to figure out a way to hurry up and finish some of my other moisturizers so I can justify purchasing this and get it into my routine. I am literally blown away at how this feels. I have dry skin and this is makes it behave more like normal skin. There is only one thing that could be improved and that is to have it in either a squeeze tube or bottle with pump dispenser as opposed to a jar but it won't prevent me from using this again. I LOVE this cream.

The texture of this moisturizer is amazing. It is a gel cream consistency. Applies very smoothly on the skin. I love using this at night. My skin feel super hydrated and smooth in the morning. It claims to moisturize for u to 72 hours...maybe in clinical tests. Does not irritate my acne prone skin. I have worn it under makeup without any issues. It does have silicone in it, so not for everyone. Currently I switch between this and belif aqua bomb. Love both equally.

I got this mask in a sampler pack of face masks from Peter Thomas Roth, and I love it! I've been using it once a week for about 2 months now. I have sensitive skin, so the first time I used the mask, my skin did burn a little bit. I used it for a few minutes and gradually upped the time I left it on my face each time I used it with no problems. I would apply it to clean skin, with wet hands, and rub into my face and leave it. It's like a scrub and mask in one. It leaves my skin super soft and visibly more luminous! I also noticed an improvement in blemishes since using this mask, and skin ultimately feels much cleaner. I definitely recommend this mask, and can't wait to try out my other sample masks!

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

on 5/20/2017 5:18:00 PM

Very disappointed as I felt that these dots prevented my skin from breathing. During the night I feel that allowing our skin to breath is probably the best thing to do. I saw no difference in my skin from using them. I also found them in Superdrug by another brand at a fraction of the cost and it contained the same percentage of salicylic acid. So I was frustrated I paid so much and a box doesn't last for long if you have multiple spots.
