Peter Thomas Roth

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.
Active: Salicylic Acid 2.00%. Inactive: Water (Aqua), Alcohol Denat., Glycolic Acid, Glycerin, Arginine, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Ammonium Hydroxide, Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

    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.

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

        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. :)

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

            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.

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

                I am loving this so far, I was worried about the 2 acids combined but in doing more research - the 2 active ingredients work together for effective delivery of the acne fighting ingredient. I am just coming off of Sunday Riley's Good Genes that was working really well but then my skin changes and I am back to finding something that works. I have been using this gel (more serum like in my opinion) for 2 weeks or so and my skin texture look fabulous and it has helped to clear the break out I had been struggling with for over a month. I don't mind the scent and it isn't too harsh for my sensitive skin. I was expecting stinging/redness/dryness but I love it so far. I really, really hope that it keeps working for me - you get so much product for the price and a pea size amount in the morning/evening has been keeping my break outs under control. Not to mention, it wears really well under makeup and does not make my foundation oxidize. Really enjoying this product, I look forward to this step of my skin care routine :)

                  I've been using this product morning and night for about a year and I will continue to use it as long as they keep making it...I absolutely love it! I reached my 40's and still had adult acne until I found this product. I use it with an acne mask 2x a week and a non-comedogenic moisturizer. It's also great for wrinkles! My face definitely looks clearer, smoother and younger since using this product.
