Cleansers -Peter Thomas Roth -Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel

I have purchased this cleanser over and over again, and it is exactly what my super oily skin needs at the end of the day. I spread it over my skin and then use my clarisonic to foam it up. It purifies my skin on a very deep level. It does strip all the oil from my skin, but as long as I use a toner and the PTR oil free moisturizer right after, my skin is fine and doesn't produce excess oil. This is my favorite cleanser of all time.

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

Meh. I used all 60 pads and they didn't do anything for me at all. I have tried other brands (Philosophy, Dr. Dennis Gross, Murad and my favourite, First Aid Beauty, and seen good results from all) I have tried several PTR products, all of which have been unimpressive. I'm done with this brand.

I've been a long time user of Paula's choice Bha 2% toner after washing my face. I don't usually see much difference with that product so I decided a change was due so I picked up this product. After using just 2 times I saw a major difference! Pores were clearer and smaller and skin looked clearer. I did not know I was supposed to rinse the solution off and I don't. I don't think my skin suffers in any way with leaving this on. The pads are so saturated that I do my hands, arms, chest, upper back, face, neck, and still the pads are not dried out. I may try cutting them in half but they are slippery little things. The solution is a little soapy feeling but only a little irritating so I am working up to using these every night. Since I have rosacea I am being careful. I found a deal on these on Jet.com.

Conditioner -Peter Thomas Roth -Mega Rich Conditioner

on 7/14/2017 9:45:00 PM

I bought a small tube of this at a yard sale (a great way to try unfamiliar products) but then almost didn't use it after reading all the terrible reviews here. I'm glad I changed my mind. I first used a hair mask (another yard sale purchase that I don't like too well) because the conditioner had been described as drying. I then shampooed twice, rinsed well and left this conditioner on for about 20 minutes. I have fine, rather dry grey hair and it came out beautiful. It even had shine (something very difficult to achieve with grey hair). This is a light conditioner which left my hair silky and smooth for four days. The name Mega-Rich is misleading. It isn't particularly rich or heavy but, for my particular hair, it was great.


Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream

Very strange feeling cream. It doesn't even feel like a cream it starts as a gel texture and when you apply it turns into this silicone texture that floats over your skin. I have never felt another cream like it. A small amount goes a very long way with this since it glides so easily. Not sure how moisturizing this is but it's working well for my combo skin. My dry areas look better, my face overall seems brighter and more youthful. I bought this to use at night but I find I like it better under my makeup during this day, the texture is perfect for that. Give it a 4.5 (jar packaging isn't ideal) and would repurchase.

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

I'm on my second bottle of this and absolutely love it. I have very tough skin that is used to .1% retin-a, but when my insurance changed & I couldn't get it anymore, I decided to try this. It works much better than the rx retin-a. The formula is weightless, doesn't clog pores, and doesn't cause the dryness & tightness I would sometimes experience with the retin-a. My skin looks so great with this it just makes me happy. I wake to refreshed, rested, smooth, even toned skin. (It should be noted that I also use Nia24 every day under sunscreen and that has done wonders for evening skin tone and removing/keeping my melasma at bay so I can't really comment on if this would, by itself, even skin tone.) 4 drops in the palm of my hand, rub hands together, and press into the worse areas first (forehead, around mouth, cheeks, neck, chest), then the rest of my face, right up to the lower lashes. The only place I avoid is eyelids. I use Olay's sleeping mask every morning when I wake up until I take a shower to relieve any tightness or sensitivity I occasionally get. I do stop using it for 5 full days a month...4 days prior to waxing appointment (wax will definitely lift your skin when using this), and 1 full day after and haven't had any problems. This is a very gentle formula and I really believe everyone except the most sensitive/reactive skin types could build up to using it full time. I've thrown out all other night time treatments since the results with this have been so friggin good so the $82 I spend on this every 6 months is totally reasonable. I do wish it came in a closed bottle type system since I'm a klutz and tend to known stuff over, but that is my only (minor) complaint. You can get it at both Sephora & from PTR website.

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

I was very excited to try this product based on the sample I received at the store.

I used it for a week straight, every other day as suggested, and after the first two times, it didn't really deliver any peeling as expected.

I was very happy after the first use, applying to clean, damp skin, and watching all the dead skin roll right off, but after one or two uses, it is useless!

I will continue to use my Boscia product that delivers the same thing, for a cheaper price!

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Vitamin C Serum (any) of their products

My new favorite spot treatment (while pregnant!).

I used to love Kate Somerville, Eradikate, however since becoming pregnant, I cannot use some of the products contained in that treatment.

I have since been on the search for another comparable alternative, and this one did the trick.

Applied after cleansing and toning, a pea sized amount on acne spots allows them to diminish over night. The smell is a bit odd, however I'll take it for clear skin!

The price, at $19, is also very fair compared to some other acne treatments on the market.


Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

The price tag for a 5 oz container is crazy, but this is one effective mask. It definitely exfoliates, leaving my skin looking soft and smooth. I have used this 2-3 times a week and notice an overall improvement in the appearance of my skin. My pores look better and my skin looks healthier. I am 50 years old this is going to be part of my weekly routine. The mask leaves an orange tint on the skin and smells like pumpkin pie spice. Has micro scrubbing beads in it to massage mask into skin. I like to I leave on for 20-30 minutes for best results.

If you want to have a porcelain skin then try this... this product is perfect for oily skin because it's not over drying... after just 2 or 3 days using it, my skin looks and feels so smooth without a trace of acne :)

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.

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

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.
