Acne Clearing Wash: Use a small amount, add water, work into a lather and massage into affected area making sure to avoid eye area. Rinse thoroughly.

Acne-Clear Invisible Dots: Before application, clean and dry affected area. Peel back an appropriately sized patch for the individual blemish. Gently press adhesive side over blemish, covering completely. Press edges to secure and contain affected area. Allow to remain in place throughout the day or night to permit healing. Do not apply makeup or any other topical product over the patch.

AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel: Active: Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two to three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If excessive dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. For external use only.

Acne Spot & Area Treatment: Clean the skin thoroughly before applying this product. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Max Complexion Correction Pads: Cleanse and rinse your face thoroughly before applying. Wipe affected area gently with pad, using light pressure. Do not scrub. Repeat with clean pad to remove remaining traces of oil, dead skin cells, pollutants and make-up residue. Because dryness can occur, apply once daily, increasing to two to three times daily as needed. If undue dryness or scaling occurs, use once daily or every other day or alternate with PTR Gentle Complexion Correction Pads.

Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne System:

I have oily skin with occasional dry patches. I have been having serious breakouts,not normal little pimples I'm talking major cystic break outs. cystic acne is a large Pimple under the skin that almost never come to a head or be easily extracted. They can be very painful and take weeks or months to fully heal and often leaves discoloration and acne scars. I'll start with the cleanser, it's doesn't have a harsh smell and I actually kinda like it even though it's some what strange smelling. You have to foam it up in your hands before putting it on your face, Once massaging it into your face it feels gentle and soothing, once rinsed off your face can feel a bit tight or dry but I don't mind that because I have oily skin. Since using the clenser my acne as been less frequent and so has my cystic acne. Next I'll tell ya about the max complexion pad- the smell on these SO strong. Not perfume smelling more like chemical. These are worth getting over the smell because I LOVE them.They dry out my stubborn acne and have improved my texture overall. Something I haven't tried out much is the gel that comes in this. I have used it once or twice, I like the fact it has similar ingredients as the complexion pad but isn't as harsh on this skin. Will most likely put this to use more when my skin has healed and doesn't need as much harsh treatments for the acne but just needs a something to help fight breakouts. Something I haven't had much success with is the acne dots everyone raves about on here. I thought I'd like these but for me they just don't do anything for my acne. The nice thing is that they are super easy to put on, very invisible and extremely comfortable.It's possible my acne is just too stubborn for these. Last the spot treatment, I don't have much luck with these products but this one has worked wonders for me. Drying out my acne is my number one goal as I have oily skin and cystic acne is difficult fight. This treatment really dries them out! Use it every night.

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne System:

              I was excited to give these products a go. I had used the cleanser and AHA/BHA serum at night. Everything seemed great and my skin seemed to love it. Significant improvement in the small outbreak I was going through at that time. That morning after cleansing I went to open the exfoliating pads only to find that the pads were covered in black mold. I grabbed the box to check out the expiration date, and the products don't even expire for a whole nother year. I am bummed to have to return these, but I would like a second try.

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne System:

              I have tried every product out there to relieve my acne. You name it, I've tried it. Proactive, clinique, x-out, pills; the whole lot. This acne system is the only thing that has ever had lasting results in clearing my skin. I supplement the system with the Irish moor mud mask once a week and moisturize with the cucumber gel mask because the system can be a little drying, but I couldn't be more pleased with the results. 10/10, I will continue to buy this until the end of time.

                This is a great way to try out the various acne reduction/prevention products in this line. You get small sample sizes of each of their products. I bought this for my husband when he had a bad breakout. The sulfur-based acne treatment was phenomenal. After the first application, his pimples were significantly reducing in size. He said that the other products were great for daily use as well.

                Gave Me My Confidence Back

                Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne System:

                This kit is simply amazing. I was on the fence between this kit and some other products, and I am SO glad I went with this. My hormonal and stress acne recently went from mild to very noticeable and embarrassing, and I knew I had to fix it. I have oily, acne prone skin, and experienced very minimal (if any) dryness. The next day my overall skin texture was so much softer, and after two days and the blemish clearing dots, almost ALL of the bumps were either gone completely or relieved from their redness and smaller. This kit has paid for itself tenfold, given me my confidence back, and I know the longer I use it the happier I'll be. I can't wait to purchase the full size products!

                Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne System:

                This kit is a great value & and easy way to try some of the heavy hitters. However, if you have even the slightest skin sensitivity, I would NOT use this kit as a system. The products work great in pairs (cleanser with the treatment serum or treat pads with spot treatment) but I noticed burning & extreme dry patches when I used it as a system. It did clear some spots up quickly, but it took a couple weeks to clear up the patchy dried out spots around my nose, mouth, chin & temples.

                I bought this product three days ago. I am already super impressed at how my skin is already improving. The first 24 hours my red blemishes were surfaced or even clearing up. I'm on day three and I honestly don't have a single breakout. I absolutely love this system. I also used the moisturizer with it. On contact you can feel a cool cleansing feeling. I don't feel overly dry. I will be buying full size products very soon. The starter kits is a great value to see how the product agrees with your skin. Great job PTR!!
