Oil-free, fragrance-free deep pore clearing gel, exclusively formulated to clear up whiteheads, acne blemishes and blackheads, refine pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Contains maximum strength Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid 2%) and potent Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid Complex 10%) in an advanced formulation, creating a unique, clarifying, synergistic action to clear up acne blemishes, minimize pore size and eliminate the formation of new blackheads and blemishes.

Helps regulate healthy cell turnover and delivers anti-aging benefits that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

(3.4 oz.)
Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily.

If excessive dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. For external use only.

Precautions: Avoid contact with eyes. If excessive skin irritation develops or increases, discontinue use and consult a doctor. Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following the use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor.

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.

    I love this gel. It works to keep skin clear, and it works on terrible blemishes, too. Non-drying. Keeps skin smooth, soft, and even. When I ran out of Retin-A, it worked just as well!

    Doesn't help acne, but does give more youthful looking skin

    By Krislyn

    from McKinney, TX

    Pros

    • Gentle
    • Improves Skin Texture
    • Moisturizing

    Cons

    • Ineffective

    Best Uses

    • Daily Use
    • Dry Skin

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

    This product did not help clear breakouts at all. Infact, it seemed to cause more. I tried it twice a day for 7 days and it caused my skin to be more oily than before. The good thing about this product though is it caused my skin to be brighter and healthier looking. While I wouldn't recommend it for those trying to clear blemishes and acne, I would recommend it for those wanting younger looking skin.

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

        This product is well worth the price. It has seriously diminished much of my acne scarring and significantly reduced my breakouts. I have weird oily yet dry / sensitive skin, yet this product does not dry my skin out. I use it in combination with Silver Serum (Skin Shop...you can't get it at Ulta...it's kind of like a probiotic for your face) and have had excellent results. I can't say enough about this product. Will definitely be purchasing and re-purchasing, I hope it's always available. I wish I took before and after pictures!!

        Feels fresh

        from North Aurora

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

        I've only been using it a short time and started after a bad breakout, so far I think it's helping tame my adult acne. I like that it's real light and doesnt feel like I just put something on my face, it also doesn't make my skin oily

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

          I used this a while ago when my acne was really bad. It's calmed down recently, but I still get hormonal acne around my chin and cheeks. It works really well and almost immediately. There was a noticeable difference after the first night-existing pimples were smaller and way less sore and red, and there were no new ones forming (usually I have one or two form overnight). It's easy to use, and the bottle goes a long way because you only need one pump to cover your whole face. Which is good because PTR products are pricey, but I'm willing to pay because they've worked so well for me. I've also noticed that acne scars have faded a lot, and my pores are smaller, so those are added bonuses. Using it twice a day is now a good routine for me morning and night. Make sure to use a mild cleanser, preferably one without acne fighting ingredients because I've found that it dries out my skin if I use two acne fighting products at once. And also remember to moisturize (also with something mild!)

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

            This product is awful. I have achieved amazing results using AHA and BHAs. I was excited to have a combination product and was interested in this more for the skin renewing benefits than acne treatment. Prior to using this product my skin was blemish-free. After using this product my face was FULL of deep, cystic acne and daily micro-sized white heads. My skin became extremely sensitive, as well. I stuck it out for 8 weeks! Within days of discontinuing use of this product my skin started to clear up. Never again will I put any PTR products on my face. Save yourself the money - there are much better products out there.
