FREE deluxe sample 24K Gold Mask w/any $25 Peter Thomas Roth purchase
With a fresh peach bellini scent, medicated double-sided-soft/textured acne pads by Peter Thomoas Roth help to minimize the appearance of pore size and offer anti-aging benefits. Includes Glycolic Acid Complex 10%, Salicylic Acid 2%, soothing Arginine, Allantoin, Whole Leaf Aloe Vera and extracts of Chamomile and Green Tea. Exclusively formulated to help cleanse skin, clear up blackheads, refine pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Pads contain potent Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid Complex 10%) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid 2%) in an advanced botanical formulation creating a unique, clarifying, synergistic action to help cleanse the skin, clear up active acne blemishes, minimize the appearance of pore size, and eliminate the formation of new blackheads and blemishes. Helps regulate healthy cell turnover and delivers proven anti-aging benefits that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Double-sided pads help deliver gentle cleansing action on one side and superior pore-refining exfoliation on the textured side. Provides a veil of fresh peach bellini scent that replaces the odor of traditional medicinal antiseptic pads.

Key Ingredients & Benefits:
  • Glycolic Acid (AHA) - Helps exfoliate dead surface skin cells and helps stimulate cellular turnover
  • Salicylic Acid (BHA) - Helps to loosen sebum within the pores and prevents future breakouts
  • Arginine - Buffers the skin from irritation
  • Allantoin - Soothes and calms
  • Aloe Vera - Soothes and hydrates
  • Chamomile Extract - Comforts and soothes
  • Green Tea Extract - Anti-oxidant helps to fight free radical attack
Cleanse and rinse your face thoroughly before applying. Wipe affected area gently with pad, using light pressure. Do not scrub. Repeat with clean pad to remove remaining traces of oil, dead skin cells, pollutants and make-up residue. Because dryness can occur, apply once daily, increasing to two to three times daily as needed. If undue dryness or scaling occurs, use once daily or every other day or alternate with PTR Gentle Complexion Correction Pads.

Precautions: Do not allow pad to remain on skin. For external use only. 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.
Active: Salicylic Acid 2%. Inactive: Alcohol Denat., Water (Aqua), Glycolic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Triethanolamine, Arginine, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Symphytum Officinale Extract, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Allantoin, Fragrance (Parfum).

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

    I have had acne problems all my life. After using the PTR complexion pads it's changed my face. I've finally felt confident enough to go to work without makeup! Also have gotten some complaints on my skin. That has never happened before using this product. I can't live without it now. I do recommend cutting the pads in half, they are saturated enough so you might not new a whole one each time you use it.

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

    I bought this product for my acne. I started using it everyday which I don't suggest if you have sensitive skin like I do. I started getting dry around my chin and month area by the third day of using it at night before bed. Other than the dryness, I did see an improvement on my skin and even got a compliment about my skin looking more clear.

    I would recommend this product. I am planning on using it once a week now. Honestly, you can't go wrong with this product. It's worth trying.

      I have been using this product for about 6 months and it is the only thing that works for me. It helps with hormonal acne as well as anti aging. It has lightened dark spots and brightened my skin. My skin feels great.

      Best for stubborn acne

      Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

      This is my second time buying this product, and it has been the only thing that has truly minimized my pores and cleared up my acne literally overnight. I wake up in the morning to a much brighter and clearer complexion. My acne is visibly less noticeable and it greatly improves the rough texture of my skin.

          Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads:

          I really wanted to like these, but I'm going to have to return them. The first time i used them, my skin was very dry afterwards so I moisturized heavily afterward. Given the nature of the product, i expected this, so it wasn't a big deal. Three days later, I tried them again and my face peeled in huge chunks. It even left a blister on my forehead. Nearly two weeks later, I still have a bright red mark where the blister was and hope it disappears eventually.

          My skin is super sensitive, though, so it's probably a good product -- just my face does not agree. Now to find time to bring it back to the store...

                A:

                The acne pads have alcohol and are very strong. You can use them in the areas that you get acne on but avoid the red, dry, sensitive areas. You should also make sure you are exfoliating regularly in the areas you get breakouts. I recommend a gentle exfoliator like FIRMx Peeling Gel.

              Is this product ok for sensitive skin? Does this product have benzoyl peroxide in it?

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                This product does not contain benzoyl peroxide. It contains Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid. This is a rather strong product so I recommend starting to use it about once a week and then building up to more frequent use once you see how your skin is tolerating it. Also, you may want to start with just targeting the areas of concern and avoiding drier areas.

                A:

                This product would be great for those concerns. I also recommend AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel. The combination of Salicylic and Glycolic Acids are great for both treating active acne and for helping to reduce the appearance of acne that isn't active but is still visible.

            • Q:

              I have sensitive, combination skin. As a woman in her mid 20's, my skin is changing especially still since 3yrs ago I was on Accutane for systic acne. which turned my oily skin into combo/dry skin, especially now during winter; but now my pores are starting to get larger again & my hormonal acne is coming back periodically (not cysts thankfully) and I still have scarring from the cystic acne. My skin is also fair and I'm prone to redness & easily irritated by products and fragrances. I used to use the Gentle Complexion Pads, which are now discontinued. Would this be a good option for exfoliating, reducing pore size & evening skin tone? I've been getting a lot of dead skin buildup around my nose, cheeks & t-zone this winter. Suggestions appreciated!

                A:

                Yes, this product could be great for those concerns. You can also only target the areas that have the issues you are referencing and avoid the dry areas. You can also try AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel, you can target its use on pores, blemishes and scars with a combination of Salicylic and Glycolic Acids.

                A:

                These two products can be used together but you are correct, they may be too drying to some skins. You can work up to using them together daily but first add the pads in every other day and work up to daily. You can play around with using these products by alternating days or by targeting specific areas of the face or body rather than everywhere.

                A:

                Yes, you can use this product as a "toner" in that it is a water-thin formula, just already applied to a cotton round/pad and is intended to be left on. This is stronger than a traditional toner though in that it has active ingredients at OTC levels where most toners are much more mild. Just keep that in mind.

                A:

                Hi, yes, you can use both products at the same time. I suggest you maybe not layer them and instead use one in the morning and one at night? Also, the Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads are rinse-off where the Max Complexion Correction Pads are leave-on. The Max Pads will help with pores more than the Peel Pads which provide more benefits to help fine lines and wrinkles.
