AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel

Item #: 2255581 Size: 3.4 oz

Oil-free, fragrance-free deep pore clearing gel, exclusively formulated to clear up whiteheads, acne blemishes and blackheads, refine pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Contains maximum strength Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid 2%) and potent Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid Complex 10%) in an advanced formulation, creating a unique, clarifying, synergistic action to clear up acne blemishes, minimize pore size and eliminate the formation of new blackheads and blemishes.

Helps regulate healthy cell turnover and delivers anti-aging benefits that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
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.

Precautions: Avoid contact with eyes. If excessive skin irritation develops or increases, discontinue use and consult a doctor. Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following the use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel:

    I use this product every morning & night after I wash my face. It is easy to use, light and dries so quick. It has evened out my skin tone and diminished acne scars. The bottle is huge so its a bit of an investment up front, but will last a long time! I am completely sold on it!

      I love this product! I've used this product in the past and forgot how much I loved it. My acne was bad so I thought I should buy it again. I've only been using it for 2 weeks my skin is starting to look much better. It really keeps my acne and blackheads away. I use it every morning and night.

            Comments about Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel:

            I'm in my early 30's with extremely oily skin and generally minimal breakouts. I do have occasional hormonal acne flare ups along my jaw line and chin, however generally I don't have whiteheads or blackheads. I received this AHA/BHA gel as part of a Peter Thomas Roth kit. After using it nightly, I found myself with raw skin and a terrible breakout around my mouth. The pimples were cystic, never really coming to a head and lingered for a few weeks. After using this for about a month, I gave up. My skin was red, raw, and inflamed. This was an unusual experience as I don't have sensitive skin. Things cleared up shortly after discontinuing use of this product.

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel:

              This product has made a huge difference in my skin! Out of nowhere, I just started breaking out and this has helped a ton with the little whiteheads I've been getting. It does take a few weeks to notice the whiteheads clear, as they take forever to go away unfortunately. For regular breakouts, like pustules, I notice them not as inflamed or red after using this after a few days. It chemically exfoliates your skin, so start using this a few times a week or it may irritate your skin, and then maybe use it once daily when your skin has gotten used to it! I like to use it at night, since during the day your skin is more sensitive to the sun when using this. Wait about 20-30 minutes after applying this to put moisturizer on your skin, as it needs to be absorbed for it to work best. It may seem expensive, but a little goes a long way! I've had this bottle since February and I'm still not halfway through it, and I've been using it about once a day. I highly recommend this product!!

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel:

              I liked this product but ended up returning it. It worked well and shrank my cysts overnight, but it seemed to make my scarring worse and dried my skin out pretty badly. I have been using an AHA alone for the past 6 months and it didn't irritate or dry out my skin. I figured I'd try this as a spot treatment. I have very sensitive skin and perhaps this was just too harsh, but good for helping to shrink cysts. It's an effective product and If you don't have sensitive skin, this will probably work well for you.

                Thus is my 3rd time purchasing this product. I absolutely love it. I put it on pimples or blemishes and the next day they are gone or greatly diminished. My son, whose has mild acne also uses this product and his face has cleared up a lot. Worth every penny.

                  Even though i am a budget buyer, i decided to give this product a try and i was not disappointed. I love love love this gel and it works very nicely on my adult acne (cystic, red, bumpy). I mean it just really makes it go away and i even told my husband to try it, he loved it as well and he barely tries any new products. You put this stuff on night and in the morning, its either gone or way less. I am not a feedback person but if a product deserves it, i will definitely write one. If you are prone to acne as i am, i wash my face with Dermalogica Clearing face wash and apply this gel at night as i do not want to apply it in the morning given our skin is exposed to sunlight. Ladies and Gents, you will not be disappointed. It worth the money because it lasts you a long time as you do not need to use it everyday. :)

                      This product was a breath of fresh air. I'm in my mid twenties and have battled with acne since I was a teenager. Everything I've tried only dried out my skin and made matters worse. This product is gentle on the skin, and I've seen a decrease in breakouts after a week. The anti-aging benefits are a nice plus. I've noticed a healthier glow to my skin that I usually try to get with a serum or cream. I haven't used this product long enough to see a difference in my scars or pores, but I'm happy with the results so far. It may seem expensive, but a little goes a long way, and an effective product is always worth the price when you've tried everything else.
