Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel

This is top notch for acne prevention. But I can't lie: Most should expect to have a period of more breakouts emerging (purging) as a result of starting this before they will see clearer skin. I certainly have. It's taken about six weeks of regular use to finally see results, which I'm okay with given the generous amount of product you get despite it being fairly expensive.

It seems to work best for me if I use it once a day or every other day. More frequent use and overuse at each application was too much for my sensitive skin.

I have normal, acne prone, sensitive skin, and I'm a 39-year-old fair complected Caucasian.

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

I like this mask and it's pretty good. My favorite masks are the 24 K gold, and the pumpkin enzyme; however, I will say this one is becoming my third favorite in the collection. I'm not sure I would repurchase it over the other two, but I like that it does seem to make my skin look much better after I have applied it and removed it after 10 minutes (more glowy and plump). I wouldn't leave it on overnight as it is a thick jelly-like texture that would be odd to sleep in. I'm sure in 10 minutes, I am getting the same benefits as if I had left it on overnight. It also has a nice light rose scent and does not sting the skin. It's great for sensitive skin types.

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

A nice cleanser that does not dry the skin out. My skin really does feel unclogged and clean yet hydrated. Its very light and there is no offensive scent. It rinses off really clean.

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

I am slowly making my way through most of Peter Thomas Roth's cleansers. I initially got a small bottle of this as a points perk at Sephora and then got a larger one (4.2 oz.) in a gift set from PTR. You might think that this cleanser is for oily skin but it is actually designated "for all skin types" and even with my dry skin at this time of year, I can use this. To my utter surprise, it really does make a difference in the look of the pores and "sebaceous filaments" around my nose. While it's not my "go to" cleanser for this time of year, I can see myself using this daily once the hot, humid summer arrives. It's not irritating despite being such a thorough cleanser. It just does a really nice job of doing what it says - cleansing and "dissolving pore clogging impurities".

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

UGH, this stuff is sooo good. I hate the price tag, but you do get quite a lot of product and it is AMAZING. It smells just like fresh pumpkin pie, and makes you skin so soft and smooth. It does burn just a little upon application, but it is just the AHAs at work. My skin looked and felt so great the morning after using this....smooth and hydrated.

For reference, I am somewhat acne-prone with uneven skin texture and this did not break me out. It lessened the appearance of blackheads/bumps.

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

on 1/10/2017 4:55:00 PM

I tried it on it the store for some odd reason and I thought it seemed legit. For the most part it's okay cuz it made my lashes look long. But it just made them look long and stringy. No volume or curl. I wouldn't recommend it. I'll stick to my lash blast.

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.

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.

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.
