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.

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:

    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.

          I've been using this for about 8 months now. I got it as a sample and then ended up buying the big bottle. It's lightweight and moisturizing without making my face greasy or causing breakouts to worsen. I honestly think if I put it on at night, my face is halfway healed by morning. I'm absolutely hooked. And I have combination skin. I get dry some places and oily others. This seems to work regardless! Highly recommend.

          I purchased this product about a month ago and I could not be happier with the results! I use it two times a week and apply over problem areas. Not only it helps to get the acne under control, it also helps to reduce the visibility of old scars. Definitely would recommend!

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

            For the passed few years I've really gotten my acne under control to the point where I was confident enough to leave my house without makeup, then out of no where the entire right side of my face started breaking out, forming 2-3 new pimples each day. I tried everything to calm my face down but nothing was helping. I bought this product after reading the reviews online, and so far it's been the best thing I could have ever purchased for my skin. After the first application I noticed my face was less inflamed, which I was not expecting. I've only been using it for about a week now and I have already seen drastic changes to my skin. No new pimples are forms, redness is going down, and the current pimples I have are healing. Luckily my skin did not go through a purging process and the product hasn't been to harsh on my skin so I can use it morning and night without it being too drying. I will definitely be repurchasing this once I run out!

                  A:

                  Your skin may undergo a "purging" and get worse before it gets better. You should give it up to 3 weeks to help reverse the breakout cycle.

                  A:

                  All skin and acne are different and will respond differently to this product. Acne takes several days to heal so you may not see improvement for a week or more.
