This doesn't do much for me - maybe hydrate a little, reduce a bit of redness. I got it in a small squeeze tube as a sample. Will not purchase once the tube is finished.

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Ultra Lite Anti-Aging Cellular Repair

This is one of the best moisturizers I have ever tried.
It is packed with:ARGIRELINE® (hexapeptide), SYN®- COLL, Pentapeptide-3 and Oligiopeptide. Collagen and Elastin help skin look firmer. Firma-CELL 4™, Glycolic Acid and Vitamins A, C and E.
I love it: it has a neutral, pleasant smell and sinks in the skin. I use it mostly in the morning before my foundation, and in summer also at night. Does an excellent job in moisturizing and firming your skin.
Love the matte finish, you can wear this alone or under your makeup, you will not get shiny at all. Also very good for men's skin (they won't use powder on top of their face, therefore a matte finish is utmost important for them).
Love the no-fuss packaging: there is no outer cardboard box (save $$ on packaging and less waste), the jar is clear plastic (safe for your bathroom tiles) but still looking good.
I am on my 2nd jar and will keep on buying! Total winner.

For me an over rated product. If you are of a certain age, have had peels,microdermabrasion, needling or whatever, this won't do a thing. This will probably work for skin that hasn't done anything and more for those in mid-30s.

I have very dry skin that reddens very easily, so I bought this masque hoping that it would be a great calming tool. I can't say that it doesn't calm and hydrate my skin, but honesty Aloe Vera would work just as well and it's about 1/16 of the price.

Cleansers -Peter Thomas Roth -Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Cleansing Gel

on 1/1/2017 4:33:00 PM

Recently, my go to foaming cleansers have been Boscia and Nars. I got a sample bottle of this from Sephora because I was curious to give it a try and, I have to say, I really like it. Granted, I think a lot of the nebulous claims are just that - cosmetic company "fluff". I'm sure rose stem cells do a lot to aid sick roses in their recovery from illness, but applying what is probably a negligible amount onto your face in a cleanser that is just going to rinsed away - come on - it's not going to do anything significant at all. Having got that out of the way, this is a really pleasant face wash. It's not too drying, doesn't leave a residue and it smells beautifully of roses. The lather it produces is has a light, airy texture, which contributes to my sense that this a gentle, non-drying product (though it does contain SLS, which sort of surprised me, because it does feel less "chemical-y" than many products with SLS). It is more expensive than my Boscia cleanser ($35 CDN vs $47) but you get almost twice as much in the bottle (5 oz. vs. 8.5) so, ounce per ounce, it's actually a better value. The Nars cleanser is $38 for just over 4 ounces, so much pricier than either of these, though I really like it a lot too. Once I finish up my current bottle of Boscia, I think I might purchase this cleanser as a replacement.

UPDATE: I've changed my repurchase rating to a "no" and taken off a lippie. I did purchase the full-sized bottle of this, and it is REALLY full-sized, as in HUGE. I've become more than a little disenchanted with this cleanser after being wowed (or maybe "wooed") by the sample I had; I think the rose scent clouded my judgment! Anyway, I don't find this to be a very effective cleanser at all. I wear fairly light face makeup and this doesn't completely remove it. If I use a toner or similar type product afterward, I see discouraging traces of my CC cream or foundation on the cotton pad. I much prefer both the Irish Moor and Anti Aging cleansers to this one as they seem to do a better job. I've transferred some of this to a bottle to share with my daughter and I'm actually using the rest as a shower gel since it does smell nice. But it's a purchase I do regret.

A further UPDATE: Because I've got this honking huge bottle and want to try to get some use of it, I decided to give it a try the other night, using it with this little Sephora silicone cleansing pad thingy. The results were great - that little pad (mine is bright pink but the pictures here on MUA are of a blue one) really helped the cleanser to cleanse my skin (I was wearing foundation and wanted to see how effective this would be) and the end result was skin that was scrupulously clean and amazingly soft (thanks to that little cleansing "pad", which is both gentle and effective). I still don't think I'd repurchase this cleanser - it's just not all that great - but at least I've found a way to get a good result with it.

I have used many, many masks, from many, many companies over the years, from cheap drugstore to 'high end'. This one has got to be one of the worst ones I've ever tried. Says to apply a generous layer. So right off the bat you are using a lot of product. I just find that wasteful when other masks out there do not require a heavy layer. Anyway, this did nothing for my skin. I did not 'feel clean' after using this like most other masks. This did oddly make a blemish on my cheek burn (completely not opened or anything, tmi, sorry). It is that time of the month for me and I just have been graced with a ginormous blemish. I thought perhaps it was making the blemish shrink or minimize it or something, but it did not. I did not get any skin brightening or tightening or clean feeling, nothing. No 'refreshing' nor 'cooling' nor 'calming' no 'soothing' as this claims about this for me (it made my blemish burn for goodness sakes!! And again, it was a completely closed blemish). FWIW, I also tried this as a thin layer, and felt or saw nothing.

I bought this as part of a holiday set and so far, not impressed with the PTR line. Tried this one, the black mask, and the pumpkin one and none of the 3 'did' anything for me. I am glad these work for some. For me these PTR masks are just grossly overpriced and for me, better products at better price points work better for me.

Lip Treatments -Peter Thomas Roth -Un-Wrinkle Lip

Maybe I was sold too quickly... but I'm sold. I have been using this for short of two weeks and can see a difference in the lines that were forming on my lips - this includes when my lips are bare, and under my favorite MAC matte lipsticks. The visible difference in such a short amount of time does lead me to think that the difference is simply cosmetic trickery, but regardless, I will keep using. While I need a lip balm over this, I am always worried that a product like aquaphor will "neutralize" the effect of the PTR Unwrinkle product, so I like to apply and then wait a bit before layering a lip moisturizer over. This is the first Peter Thomas Roth product that I have used, and it is also the fastest acting (non-prescription) skincare product that I have tried. I will be purchasing the line's eye cream next, and am hoping that in combination with fillers and Botox, I will see great results.

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

on 12/28/2016 3:57:00 PM

I agree with the other reviewer. This provides a nice glow and helps a lot with congestion. My face feels smooth and soft after washing. It can be a tad drying if I use it every day but nonetheless it is a good cleanser for oily skin, especially break out prone.

I'm not too impressed with this mask. It didnt do much on my face. It was a little sticky. Good thing it was only a deluxe sample size from one of those Sephora favorites set for xmas.

Treatments (Eye) -Peter Thomas Roth -Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Creme

foto

Eye cream in a pot why???? It's not 1956!! A tube would be great!! I wash my hands before applying but still I hate the idea of bacteria building up in there and have it go near my eyes...yuck! The cream is nice and moisturizing. I use it on top of the Volufill eye and unwrinkle eye swiped directly on fine inner eye creases. It kinda seals it all in and moisturizes everything nicely. It does nothing for dark circles or hollowness or anything more than moisturizing. Dollar Tree has a moisturizer in a tube that works just as well and is a dollar. I don't know that it's worth the cost but it seems to moisturize alright and not irritate my eyes so that's a plus. It's a nice compliment to other PTR treatments but it's not outstanding. Bobbi Brown has a super rich eye cream that moisturizes better. I like though that I can layer this and it works with the other PTR stuff to make my eyes look nice.

I like it but not in love with it. I use it morning and night sometimes, sometimes at night only--just depends. I think I was expecting moisture but instead it gently sucks ur pores smaller and refines lines and texture. It seems kinda odd cuz I expected a moisturizing plumping thing but it does the opposite, gently tho. It def works. At night I cleanse with the rose cleanser and Clarisonic then let this sit while I shower or watch tv. Then I rinse it off with cool water. My pores always look much smaller, less dilated and gross..my skin overall looks more refined but not tight or dry. I really like it and will keep buying it. You don't need a ton so a jar will last a fairly long time. Again packaging is an issue. There's got to be a better way than a tub...seems so unsanitary. I use a round makeup sponge to scoop and apply cuz fingers in the pot scream unsanitary to me no matter how clean they are. A nice tube or a pump would be great. Still, good product that works surprisingly well without overdrying.

Toners -Peter Thomas Roth -Un-Wrinkle Turbo Line Smoothing Toning Lotion

Wow is this costly! A toner shouldn't ever cost this much--ever. But, that being said, I do quite like it and will continue to buy it. I put a few drops into the palm of my hand and gently pat it on. I know toners are swept on with a cotton ball but this is more like treatment than toner--so I use it like a pre-product skin balancing treatment. My skin likes it now. I was never happy or successful using anything PTR if I rubbed or applied it with any kind of pressure...I'd constantly be red or break out...gently patting the products seems to be key for sensitive skin. This stuff is full of good ingredients and preps skin for the treat/moisturizing stuff. There's glycolic in it so it works to exfoliate and all that stuff, before you've even applied that actual treatments. It would be cool if it was cheaper and in a big spray bottle like the aloe mist. I wonder how dewy it would make your makeup during the day. But just using it as a prep for skincare works too, despite the price. Nice product, works well but for the cost it should have better packaging.

Noticeably reduced my pore size and, with weekly use, keeps my hormonal acne at bay. One jar lasts me about a year.

Treatments (Eye) -Peter Thomas Roth -Un-Wrinkle Eye

I agree the price is scary and the results aren't breathtaking. But if used just on fine lines around the eye, along with a moisturizer, it works great! In the am, I use a fine brush to apply to those inner corner creases then apply my usual eye cream. My makeup goes on smoothly and the lines seem to vanish. At night, I use the same technique and dab some Volufill over the while under eye area and then a moisturizer over top. It seems like a lot but I use very little product. It definitely works well that way even with a cheapo eye cream over top. I really love this stuff and will keep buying, but I don't recommend it as your only eye product--def get a good moisturizing eye cream even a cheap one because even though this is good for wrinkles it's not real moisturizing. Guess everything is a trade off?.....

Skincare - Face -Peter Thomas Roth -Un-Wrinkle Turbo Face Serum

I love this! It's great for fine lines. I pat...rubbing is bad and causes breakouts while using this or the Volufill...I learned the hard way--pat gently and let absorb. I use tiny amounts only on the fine lines I get around the mouth, forehead, and even under the eyes. It definitely makes a difference. Don't slather it on your whole face--it's wasteful and doesn't work trust me...just dot on your problem areas and pat. One bottle lasts a long time if you just do little pumps--more is not better. The price is kinda a lot scary but people have commented on my glow and overall how my complexion is not knowing I'm using this and Volufill. Def gonna keep using!!
