    Bye bye wrinkles, redness, and roughness! It did exactly what it said it would do. I'm 36, a few wrinkles and a deep one between the eyes from squinting. The deep one shrunk by 40%. BAM

    This product is great! I noticed results the next morning and it really helps fade hyperpigmentation. It can dry the skin out a bit so I would follow with a moisturizer but overall a really good product.

            Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Hydrating Gel:

            Wow. For me, this has been the most effective skin care product I have ever tried. I have been using it for about 2.5 weeks every evening. It has evened out my skin tone and acne marks almost completely. When I wake up and look in the mirror in the morning I can't believe how well my face looks. I have tried other glycolic products that just seemed too harsh. This is perfect. I do not think its moisturizing, but it's not at all drying. I use one pump for my whole face and this seems fine. I have really oily skin so I'm. Not a big fan of having to wear sunscreen on my face everyday.. But it's worth it for the results!

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Hydrating Gel:

              I had such high hopes for this product. In general, my skin loves both AHA and BHAs. This product was NOT moisturizing at all and caused my otherwise blemish-free skin to breakout with deep cystic acne. Upon discontinuing the product the blemishes cleared up almost immediately and no new ones appeared.
