      Comments about Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel:

      I have sensitive combination skin. My skin is prone to adult acne -- unless I use this serum. This is, hands down, my go-to HG skin care product. I use it morning and night, after I cleanse and tone/clarify my face. I follow with an SPF moisturizer in the am, and a night cream in the pm. I have tried so SO many products, high/low end, drugstore to prestige. This one product is more effective, dependable and skin-perfecting than Murad, Proactiv, Neutrogena, Cetaphil, Cerave, Burt's Bees, Clinique, DDF, Mario Badescu, Philosopy, Decleor, Ole Henriksen, Shiseido, Boscia, Rx treatments... you name it, there's a good chance I've tried it.

      I was told to use this item once a day and then progressively use out up to 3 Times a day... but our was way too strong even when used once a day... i have never had dry skin since i have oily skin and acne probe skin as well and within 2 days i had dry patches everywhere.... did not love it, out was way too strong.

        Comments about Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel:

        I suffer from moderate to severe adult acne and have tried pretty much everything - including being on Accutane several times and changing diet. Using this product twice a day after washing face with 2% sylacilic acid based face wash has really brought my acne under control. I still get break-outs but not half as bad, and this product has helped with the scarring! Yes, its expensive but you get what you pay for and it does go, surprisingly, a long way. If you have acne concerns- give this a go!!! PS be patient, nothing works over-night

          Comments about Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel:

          I have been using this and the max corrector pads for a week and my skin has never been this soft, even after a microderm session. I wash my face with a gentle glycerin soap, use the pads as a "toner" and then apply the gel. I do have acne and was using Proactiv which worked for the inflammatory acne but did nothing for comedomial acne I would get. So far this has helped tremendously and I can walk in the store and buy it instead of having to wait and order my other face care products online. I am 27 and still have acne, oily skin, and some fine lines. Since using PTR my skin is just soft and not oily. I also have a glow about me. If your skin is sensative you might get peeling or redness but mine is not and I just feel a tingle after applying until it dries. So glad I found this! Oh and make sure you wear sunscreen. Any acid based product will leave you more susceptible to sunburn/damage.

            This product is great because it bottles all concerns; adult acne, it's great to prevent wrinkles/aging. The first week it cleared my crazy adult acne and made my skin soft. Even pores seem to disappear. Everyone wanted my regimen....it's only one product! Good size for the price, completely worth it!

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel:

              Here's the thing: I've got oily/combination skin, especially in my little t-zone area. Recently, I've had some annoying cheek acne that is definitely hormonal and this *was* helping for about a couple of months...but then it just stopped :( And that's just ridiculous for a product that costs THIS much. I've since switched to all organic products and using OILS (yes! you've read me right, OILS) on my not as oily as it used to be...face :) The key of course, is to buy the RIGHT oil. Go only organic and only the kind that is best suited for the issues you are concerned with. Anyway...let's just say my current regimen has nixed this guy and includes an organic handmade soap, 2 different types of organic oils, and an all organic toner.....all for less than this guy. If you can swing it, go into an ulta, see if the girls will hook you up with a small sample to try....because as we know, Ulta is AMAZING :) And some reviews rave about this...and well....I guess I'm one that doesn't. Don't get the hype anymore and not worth the pricetag.

                  Very frustrated when opened the package to see that the size is not as advertised. The box has an arrow that says acutal size pointing to the 100 ml 3.4 oz, but when you open the box you get a 2 oz 57 ml bottle. That is quite a difference, one worth going back to the store and asking for an explanation on the false advertising.

                  Love PTR products and this aha bha clearing gel is the perfect addition to my adult acne oily skin problem regimen. I've had skin issues my entire life and this product in combination with the glycolic moisturizer , anti aging cleanser, and blemish buffing beads is not only helping clear up my skin once and for all, but it's also helping my current fine lines and wrinkles disappear, as well as my acne scars and skin texture. Hope I never run out... Panic ensues when I get close!!
