Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer

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.

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!

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

I used Peter thomas RothTherapeutic Sulfur Masque Acne Treatment Masque for a large ance piimple nodule that was at the side of my lower chin.I just put it on the nodule only .I slept with it overnight. The pimple actually looked smaller when I washed it off. It kind of dried it out. I will repeat once a week hopefully until it's gone.These type of acne bumps are stubborn .

My favorite acne treatment! I leave it on overnight on my zits and BAM in most cases they are gone. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. It will definitely dry your face out due to the amount of sulfur in it. So I only put it on over night a couple times a week.

This peeling gel is BONKERS GOOD! At first I didn't think it was doing much and was sort of puzzled by it, but it left my face so soft that I am only left thinking that it must be magical. It also gets bonus points for not irritating my skin like physical and chemical exfoliators. Will buy again and again.

This stuff is useless. It doesn't have a good consistency or no distinct smell. And does Nothing for skin. Bunch of empty words expressed by the makers

Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream

on 9/3/2017 8:47:00 PM

I tried this a few weeks ago when I received a sample. I really like some of the water based creams that I have tried lately.

I wasn't impressed, at all, with this one. And I usually like PTR products. I didn't notice that it did a good job moisturizing or plumping my skin like some of the others do. I didn't notice any benefits of using it. I wouldn't recommend it. Not a good moisturizer, even for oily or combo skin like mine. Of course, YMMV.
