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

    A serious case of shingles on my face led to severe scarring, as well as several instances of stubborn milia on my cheek and temple. For five months, I tried numerous products to help even out my skin tone and texture, and nothing worked. This product was a godsend, and within two weeks of use, most of the milia were able to be extracted and my skin looked smoother than it had in months. I cannot say enough positive things about this product, and I am beyond elated that I found it. It is extremely lightweight and absorbs quickly. There is a scent to it, however, but I am not bothered by it, considering how fantastic and efficacious a product it is. I have rather sensitive skin, but thus far I have not had any negative reactions to it. Thank you Ulta, for carrying this wonderful product.

      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!

              • Q:

                I started using the Acne Kit system and LOVE it. I want to gradually start adding the glycolic gel to my skin care routine, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do that. I currently wash my face with the acne wash, use the max corrections pads, and then add the aha/bha gel on top of that. Am I able to add the glycolic gel as well to my night routine on top of the others? Or should I use it in the morning? Or switch between the two gels every other night?

                  A:

                  I think that all of your suggestions are possibilities. It depends on how your skin reacts. If acne is your biggest concern, try to use the aha/BHA clearing gel daily as long as you do not get too dry or experience irritation. I think the best suggestion is to alternate morning and night or days for the aha/BHA and the 10% gel. However if you experience dryness you may want to consider the 10% glycolic moisturizer which is in a lotion versus gel base. Play around with trying different combinations of when and what you're using and see what works best for YOU, everyone is different. And please, remember to use sunscreen during the day while using these products in your regimen.

              • Q:

                I have mild hyperpigmentation & I try very hard to avoid the sun to keep it that way. However, I still have several mild dark spots on my cheeks (& after sun I notice it on my forehead a lot) What sort of effect can I expect from this product? (also, I have rather dry skin, too)

                  A:

                  I cannot make any promises especially because skin discolorations, unevenness and dark spots can be caused by different factors and treated effectively with different methods in everyone. Glycolic Acid is known to exfoliate skin and help with signs of aging. If your skin is rather dry as you say, I would maybe suggest you try the lotion form of this product, it is Called 10% Glycolic Moisturizer (a lotion in a tube). You may find it more moisturizing. We also offer other ingredients that help treat the appearance of dark spots including retinols, vitamin C and enzymes. Some people find combination treatments more effective than using a single product or ingredient.
