A nightmare for my skin

      Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM:

      I was really excited to try this product, given the great reviews. I had been using retinol products for about a year now and really liked how they help control my adult acne.
      I don't know if it's the formulation or what, but this product created an absolute nightmare for my skin. I had huge, painful, cystic acne in some places and peeling in others. At first I told myself I was purging due to the strength of the product- then my husband finally convinced me that it was making things worse.
      When I stopped using the product, my skin started to heal- but it was a slow process, and I still have hyper-pigmentation and scarring. I love other PTR products, but this one obviously did't jive with my skin. Thank goodness for Ulta's awesome return policy!

              I'm not an expert, but I have tried various retinol products and unfortunately I didn't see any changes in my face with this product. My skin still looked dull & dry. It has a lot of retinol in the mix though, so I would have to think it's doing something?

                  I have repurchased this numerous times. It's my secret weapon and favorite beauty treatment. This is the only thing I use at night after cleansing. It's simple, I use this every night (face, neck, and back of hands) and I wake up with glowing, beautiful skin. It's the only retinol that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and it's effective at keeping all signs of aging at bay. Worth every penny! Love it! < 3

                    I have very difficult skin. Very sensitive, acne, dry flakes, hyperpigmentation, finelines, the works. I use nightly on clean, dry skin. I have noticed a huge change in my skin texture and my breakouts. No difference so far in fine lines but even if it doesn't help that at all I will continue to use this product because I'm so pleased with the results.

                      I have gone thru one bottle so far and I will say my skin looks better. I have used Dr. Brandt Retinol in the past which was more of a cream, but I think PTR works better. Also there can be a lot of wasted product with creams as you can never get all the product out. I like that this product is a liquid, no waste. I actually hold the eye dropper right to my face and then spread using my finger tips. I might give it 5 stars, just need more time to evaluate it.

                        I'm only 19 but i believe early intervention is important for aging. I use this every night on a dry face and LOVE IT. I do have some lines but haven't noticed that it's made a difference yet, it has tremendously helped with my acne, acne scarring, pores, overall texture and complexion. I have used a doctor prescribed retinol cream before for acne and found that it was drying and actually worsened my acne. My prescribed retinol cream did nothing and this has improved my skin in so many ways, the fact that its a serum is a plus. It's like gucci for your skin!!

                            Those products are all excellent for your concerns. If your skin is not dry, I would recommend Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel as your Cleanser. During the day you should ideally use a moisturizer and sunscreen or a moisturizer with sunscreen, Max Sheer Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 30 would be great. For the eyes, you can try Retinol Fushion PM Eye Cream, Un-Wrinkle Night or Mega Rich Eye.

                            Yes, you can use both. We recommend layering products in order of texture; thin to thick. Therefore the Retinol Fusion PM would would be applied first, followed by Un-Wrinkle Turbo.

                            Retinol and Vitamin C actually work great together. We recommend our Retinol Fusion PM for nighttime only use so please be sure to use it then. However, you can layer a vitamin C product under the retinol at night, results have been reported to appear better with the combination.

                            A:

                            This formula is nearly water-thin in texture. It also absorbs very quickly. I don't think you need to wait at all unless you see and feel that the serum hasn't absorbed yet. Your face should not be noticeably damp with serum when you apply moisturizer.

                            Yes, definitely. This is a perfect addition. Just layer your products in "thin to thick" order. This serum is very thin do it quite possibly will be the first thing you apply after cleansing your skin. Then follow with thicker products and creams. Please be sure to wear sunscreen in the morning!

                          It says to shake well & I do, but this product has a water like consistency, right?

                            Hello! Yes, this nearly water-thin formula is intentionally this fluid in consistency. All it takes is a few drops and the somewhat emollient thin formula allows you to use a little but spread it all over quite easily. Thank you!
