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.
