Find in Store-

A fabulous, oil-free, all-purpose anti-aging exfoliating cleanser containing a gentle form of Glycolic Acid. Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Helps clarify the skin and smooth out rough texture.

Key Ingredients & Benefits:
  • 3% Glycolic Acid (AHA) - Helps exfoliate dead surface skin cells and stimulate cellular turnover.
  • Allantoin - Helps soothe and calm the skin.
  • Pro Vitamin B5 - Helps moisturize, nourish and clarify.
Combination, oily and acne prone skin, use once or twice daily. Normal, dry and sun damaged skin, use two to three times a week at first, increasing usage if well-tolerated. Apply a small amount of cleansing gel over moistened skin with the fingertips. Work into a rich, foamy lather and massage gently for one minute. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. Follow with PTR treatment product, moisturizer and/or sun protection.

Precautions: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. Some mild dryness may occur in very sensitive or dry individuals, which is normal. Mild dryness may be reduced by using the product less frequently or alternating with a milder PTR facial wash. Not recommended for very sensitive skin, eczema, seborrhea, rosacea, or Retin-A users.

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.

I had horrible cystic acne, I started using this out of pure desperation. I have never love something as much as this. It leaves skin feeling soft, clean, and silky. It doesn't dry out the skin line some acne products. It helped with my scars too. Please don't ever discontinue this. I recommended this to all my friends and family. It truly is a miracle worker

I have been using this face wash for 2 years and its the only product I've used that finally controlled my adult acne. It can be drying so I would use a good moisturizer.

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 3% Facial Wash:

    I love this product. It helped with my acne cleaning out my skin. I use it with the mini foreo sometimes daily if my skin needs it or 3 times a week. I do notice if I use it daily my skin dries. Also use moisturizer. I am on my second bottle. And this bottle last for more than a year. Also little product is enough a lil goes a long way.
    I don't have anything bad to say about it the dryness doesn't bother me because as long as you use it less days it won't dry you as much.

        This is a great product that has helped improve the clarity of my skin. I alternate with a gentler cleanser during the winter months as it can dry skin out a bit with the cold weather.
