    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Kit:

    I bought this product because I ran out of proactiv and didn't feel like it was working that well anymore. I thought it was wierd it came with 2 washes, no toner and no moisturizer. I've been using it for about a month and a half and cannot withstand it anymore. My face got worse and I was told it'll get worse before it gets better, well I tried to hang in there as long as I can but I can't do it anymore. My skin is the worse it's ever been. I'm going back to proactiv but going to try their new plus formula.

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Kit:

    I have tried everything for my cystic acne and this is the only product that works. If you have been suffering from acne, please try this stuff! For $35 you get a lot of products and they all work! I couldn't imagine my skin without this kit. It does dry your skin out at first but if you use a moisturizer, it helps.

          Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Kit:

          This was a great purchase! I have pretty bad skin and there are six different products in this kit. Three of them are for daily use and three of them are for when you're breaking out. I absolutely LOVE the face wash and have purchased a larger bottle. My other favorite in the kit is the mask. It's a sulfur mask so it doesn't smell fantastic but I'm AMAZED at how well it works! I often put it on my "trouble spots" overnight and wash it off in the morning and if it's not completely gone, it's at least much less prominent. The spot treatment is fairly standard. I'm not really sure if the gel is doing anything because I use a makeup primer with salicylic acid in it everyday anyway. The jojoba scrub is really nice! It's not so harsh that you feel like you're peeling your whole face off but I think it does a good job. I haven't really used the oil reducer because my primer is mattifying so I don't have much of a review on that aside from the one time that I did use it, I didn't care for the texture when it came out of the tube, but it wasn't too bad once it was on.

          If you have bad skin and want to try out a whole line of products to see what works/doesn't work, what you like/don't like, etc. this is a GREAT purchase. I'm sure I will buy the full size sulfur mask once this runs out and I am likely to buy the jojoba scrub.

          In summary, there has been a definitely noticeable change in my skin for the better and I definitely recommend this!

          Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Kit:

          I absolutely LOVE Peter Thomas Roth. This product is truly amazing. If everyone who had negative comments about the smell, then they obviously did not read the label. The Acne Spot Clearing Treatment is %5 SULFUR. Of course its got a funky smell but it works. I noticed it OVERNIGHT. The AHA/BHA serum is probably my favorite product out of the whole kit. It LITERALLY diminishes your pores. Another thing YOU MUST USE THIS PRODUCT FOR AWHILE. No product will work right away. IT WILL GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER. You have to let all of that dirt from your clogged pores get pushed out. No over the counter skin care will work this good.

          Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Kit:

          I was using Proactiv for a year and felt like it had stopped working and made my face incredibly greasy. I switched to this acne kit and LOVED it!! My blemishes almost instantly went away. The spot treatment stinks, but the mattifying gel works GREAT to keep oil under control. If you have an oily complexion, I would highly suggest using this. It dried my skin a little, but helped control my oil and acne better than Proactiv.

          Pros

            • Ineffective
            • Irritates Skin

            Best Uses

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Kit:

              I have had pretty bad acne for awhile and I thought I would give this a try, I've been using it for a little over a month now, it has done nothing but possibly cause pimples to come up. I also have increased the times i use this product a day, as instructed on the bottles if not improved, and nothing changed. I have oily skin and i tried using the oil control it came with, it does not work and feels really pasty. It smells horrible and irritates my skin. Not to mention, when buying this product, it can be misleading, it is pretty expensive and the sizes of the bottles are tiny.

                Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Kit:

                I never write reviews but seeming that I've gone through weeks with a face that is literally unpresentable I feel compelled. Ive been a St Ives Apricot Scrub user for at least a decade and it always did well. Now as I got older I was looking for something to keep warding off the acne while taking "preventative measure". So PTR was suggested.

                Days 1 and 2- wow my skin perked up! diminished pores and my usually oily Tzone was a nice Matte TZone. Then it all went down hill! by day 5 my skin was so flaky no matter how much I moisturized it that I was embarassed to go to work and had to cake on makeup (I'm a nurse) and that did'nt even help because my make up started peeling away with my poor face. Thats when I tried to moisturize a little more or use the products more sparingly and change up the regimen.
                Well by day 7 i had teeny tiny little pimple outbreaks in places I had never had acne before in my life, including the cleft where your jaw and your earline meet.... seriously??? The acne spot treatment(smells terrible) which at first vanished any sign of a pimple on days 1 and 2 now made these pimples big and bulgy and scary like they were ready to RAGE at the next person who looked at them.
                By Week 2 I offically had a RACCOON FACE! dark patched around my mouth and eyes from all the discoloration this product caused my face. How embarassing and no amount of makeup could cover that up. Sooo in the garbage this garbage goes! It will take me weeks to recover.
                The only thing I can say I liked and is worth keeping is the Glycolic Acid Gel thing but even that riding solo I'll be very cautious with.

                  Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Kit:

                  I am 31 and still dealing with acne prone skin. With this system, I could see a difference in my skin in 1 day! On day 2, I felt comfortable not wearing cover up/foundation/make up! Only, two tiny cons, which will not prevent me from a future purchase: spot treatment could smell better and the system slightly dried my skin in the upper cheek/near nose area, laugh line area, and around the outer edges of my lips. Chances are good that I will purchase this item again when I run out.

                  I have suffered from ance breakouts for almost 5 years, I have tried almost everything on the market and this product thus far has really worked for me. The one complaint I have is the smell of spot treater, b/c it contains sulfur it has a slight egggy smell.
