      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!

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

        I had such high hopes for this product. In general, my skin loves both AHA and BHAs. This product was NOT moisturizing at all and caused my otherwise blemish-free skin to breakout with deep cystic acne. Upon discontinuing the product the blemishes cleared up almost immediately and no new ones appeared.

          I use this product every other night as I alternate with Retin-A. I don't see any difference. I recently started using it every morning as well and still don't see any difference. Love other PTR products and was hoping this would be better than it is.

          So far so good. I have noticed that a few dark spots are lighter. Nothing else was working. Seems to work better on my skin than the prescription cream from the dermatologist.

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

            I am always skeptical whether these expensive beauty products really work. I bought this after seeing it evaluated in inStyle magazine. I believe this does work. I am in my 50's and this has minimized fine lines and sun damage. I can honestly say, I look younger than my friends.I got some free samples for cleanser and exfoliateing lotion that work nice too.
