Great for bad breakouts

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

    I have adult cystic acne and had one particularly bad bump show up overnight. It was on a weekend so I couldn't find a derm for a cortisone shot. I did some research and found this, and am definitely happy with my purchase. I can't say it has the exact same effects as a cortisone shot, but the bump was significantly smaller the next day and was fully gone within 5 days. In the past, I've used Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion, which I still like, but this PTR spot treatment was much more powerful. It is expensive for the amount of product, but worth a try for those bad breakouts.

      I've suffered from severe hormonal acne that I just can't seem to kick. I have tried millions of regimens prescribed and OTC and nothing seems to be effective. I've used product for just a few days and my acne and scars have basically already disappeared

      Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

      So I have been using the PTR acne products for a little over a month now. I started with the acne starter kit that came with the face wash, complexion pads, spot and area treatment, the zit dots, and the acne clearing gel. I repurchased the face wash, pads, and spot and area treatment. So far My cystic acne is completely gone and haven't had one in about 3 weeks and when I start to maybe feel one coming the spot treatment kills it by the next few days before it pops up. I still have minor zits here and there but my complexion hasn't been this good in over a year. My scarring is disappearing zits are less frequent and cycstic acne completely gone. I can't tell you how greatful I am. This spot and area treatment is my favorite of the bunch, I can't be without it. I use it every night in areas that need some help healing or in zits I want gone and it's so effective. If you struggle with cycstic acne get this and the face wash and see how your skin reacts after a month. I will forever use this it has changed my skin.

        Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

        Sulfur based products work amazingly well for my adult acne. This particular product has helped clear up a serious breakout just this past week. This product is great but you don't get enough bang for your buck and I can't see buying it again. It smells pretty awful, but it fades fast so don't fear using it during the day. I do recommend this to anyone suffering from adult acne, but use sparingly if you can. I've not had a problem with my skin drying, nor have I had any irritation from the sulfur in this product.

          Used one time on 2 large cysts and remarkably almost gone overnight! Such. A fan. This is the best stuff I've found for cystic hormonal acne. I went in Ulta to get another product that I *thought* I was happy with and the sales rep told me about the % of sulfur effectiveness. I also love that it had colloidal silver at 5%. Huge fan and I've struggled with cystic acne on and off for about 20 years. Now going to explore more of the line

          Good for deep, cystic acne

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

              I have struggled with acne on and off for a long time - my biggest challenge right now is balancing anti-aging with cystic/hormonal acne. I like this product because the sulfur seems to finally make a difference on my cystic (large, inflamed, deep) spots although it doesn't seem to work for small whiteheads and superficial breakouts. This is nice to use under makeup and I actually had the best luck when combining this with the Kate Somerville Eradikate. I would use Eradikate at night and this product during the day. Eradikate is very drying, this isn't as drying but also doesn't seem to work as fast on my cystic acne as Eradikate. I hope this helps someone who is also in my position!

                This does what it's supposed to do. When I have a blemish, or one I can tell is forming, I put this on the spot before bed and by morning it's gone.

                This stuff smells HORRIBLE though! I put up with the scent because it works so well, but be prepared for it to assault your nostrils (it is sulfur afterall).

                I was skeptical at first especially with the price but after the first night my acne had nearly vanished and I was breaking out severely. However, it stings when applied but only for a couple seconds.
