Peter Thomas Roth

Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash

Item #: 2076993 Size: 8.5 oz

This gentle yet effective oil-free acne wash deep cleans without over drying. Helps eliminate the breakout cycle while it removes excess oil, make-up and bacteria. Soothes and conditions the skin, leaving it "squeaky" clean and residue-free. Salicylic Acid (BHA) - Helps to loosen sebum within the pores and prevent future breakouts.
For acne on the face and neck, using a small amount, add water, work into a lather and massage into affected area, avoiding eyes and sensitive areas of the neck. Use with caution around the mouth. Rinse thoroughly. Finish and protect with a PTR treatment product, moisturizer and/or sun protection. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, begin with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Precautions: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water. Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following 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. Keep out of reach of children. In the case of accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.
Active: 2% Salicylic Acid. Inactive: Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lauryl Glucoside, Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B5), Allantoin, Methylparaben, Quaternium-15.

Amazing Product

By Elizabeth

from Long Beach, CA

Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash:

I used to be an athlete and sweat so much mixed with my makeup causing bumpy gross breakouts and this definitely flattened and smoothed out my face!! Also this made my dark spots from previous acne fade. This is my holy grail facial wash because i bought it 6 months ago and still have more than a quarter left and use it everyday! this product is pricey but well worth the money! MUST HAVE

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash:

    This product worked wonders for me. It left my oily skin more matte feeling but the price is kinda steep for a face wash. I usually only buy this when my skin is out of control and needs a shock therapy if you will. Quality product just wish it was more competitively priced.

        Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash:

        I have been searching for a product to help my acne I have searched and used almost everything out there!!! From doctors prescribed medications to high end cleansers like this one and this was terrible it dried out my skin immensely and had no effect on clearing me up whatsoever!! I have oily, sensitive skin so I was careful with this product and only used it once a day and still it left my skin feeling super dry!! Obviously we all different skin types but this did NOT work for me...for the price I was expecting a lot more.

          Melts the makeup right off my face with just my fingertips! (And I apply makeup heavily!) Gets all the oils off the face and fights acne REALLY well.

            Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash:

            I use this as my every day cleanser AM/PM and find it to be very effective for maintaining great looking skin and managing blemish/breakout control.
            I find it best to apply so it lathers then use a washcloth as I rinse to help with exfoliation (since this is strictly a lathering liquid - no texture).
            Like many of the PTR products I've used, it's worth the price because a little goes a long way and the results are visible.

            I use this product every other day. It does what it says. You might not want to use this product every day (because it dries your skin), but it's a great product.

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash:

              Thisbis a thorough cleanser to remove makeup, but I didn't feel the tingle until about 30 seconds of contact. So now I use it in the shower where I can let the suds sit on my face and run to my neck while I shampoo. My chin pimple lifespan is much shorter now, and I havent had a large one in a whlie. I will buy again. Also, a very small pea size lathered up my while face, ears, and neck. This bottle might last a year.
