    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

    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.

    Worth it, best drying cream

    By Emily

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

    This product does have a bit of an unfortunate smell, but that's because it contains sulphur. But for a night cream to eliminate spots, this is the best I've ever used. It seriously diminishes lumps, bumps, whiteheads, etc. overnight -- without overly drying out your skin. It's like magic. I have struggled with severe cystic acne for over a decade now (I'm only 23), and this product is top-notch. Buying more!!

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

    This stuff is really intense. Perhaps too intense. I bought this as something to use during the day on my cystic acne instead of my usual mario badescu acne products. I could take this with me to work and it smelled slightly less of sulfur. When I applied it to my acne I could definitely feel it working. It does help with acne, but it will also dry your skin out very very fast. I put this on some small spots on my cheeks and now I have some nasty scaly patches and very irritated skin. However the spots around my chin (which are the deepest ones) are healing nicely without scaly patches! Long story short: I really only recommend using this on moderate/bad acne where you have thicker skin! Stick too less intense stuff for other areas

          This calms the redness and helps reduce the size overnight. I use this with the glam glow face wash and mask (white containers, black product) these products together work great and its the only way I've been able to clear up my skin.

            I've loved every PTR product I've purchased, and this is no different. I only break out during "that time of the month" and it's usually only a few big ones. Believe me, those "big ones" are not cute. Thankfully, this spot treatment gets rid of those suckers overnight. I've used the little sticker things and they work as well. You really can't go wrong with either product, but I prefer the cream.

              Should I apply this product after my serum and moisturizer, or before moisturizing?

              Also, is it safe to use this in conjunction with a glycolic acid serum? I am an african-american woman treating oily, acne-prone skin with hyperpigmentation.

                A:

                We recommend you apply it to the affected area only and under any other products, so onto clean, dry skin. If your skin does not become too dry or irritated, you can use this in conjunction with a gylcolic acid serum.
