Cons

Best Uses

  • Inflammatory Acne

Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

I bought this to replace another sulfur acne treatment that had changed their formulation to be salicylic acid instead of sulfur (and bonus, there is actually MORE product in here for the same price!). Yes, this is stinky, but the smell dissipates and as long as it works, I'm ok with it! Use it as a spot treatment to help shrink the size and dry it out, or an all over treatment to prevent pesky breakouts. I've just started using this, but so far, I'm satisfied with the results I'm seeing. I suffer from hormonal breakouts.

works for prevention too

By laurie t

from salt lake city utah

Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

I replaced my dermalogica preventative serum with this. it's half the price and just as effective if not more. I use it on my chin nose and around my eyebrows morning and night. a little goes a long way as I have had this tube for 3 months.

Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

I love PeterThomasRoth face masks and cleansers very much. The Irish mud mask and pumpkin resurfacing mask have a special place in my heart. I was very excited to try this product and was sad that it was either too intense or an ingredient in this product irritated my skin too much. It made me itch, made my break out open, and burned. If you don't have sensitive skin this might work for you. It is disappointing to say that it's a strong pass for me.

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

    I've used PTR Acne products for the last 7 years. Clears up acne problems fast! Now that my kids are teens, they love that they can clear up breakouts quickly. The only drawback is the smell of the Spot Treatment. As it's sulfur based, some may find the smell a little gross. To me, I don't care as long as it's getting rid of unwanted adult acne.

    The only thing that has EVER worked! Not an exaggeration!

    By Beverly

    from Harrisburg, PA

    Pros

    • Easy To Use
    • Works Effectively

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Adult Acne

      Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

      I'm 34 years old. I've had moderate acne my whole life. Breakouts were always worse around my period, but wow as I got older the cystic acne showed up and some would stick around for a month or more. I read all of the reviews below this and thought, it's worth a try. I've only tried a million other products, why not this one?

      I put it on the first night and my cystic acne was practically gone by morning. I was in absolute shock at how quickly and how well this product worked! If I only had this for the last 20 years! I would recommend this to anyone and everyone that suffers from adult acne!!!

        Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot & Area Treatment:

        I have adult cystic acne and had one particularly bad bump show up overnight. It was on a weekend so I couldn't find a derm for a cortisone shot. I did some research and found this, and am definitely happy with my purchase. I can't say it has the exact same effects as a cortisone shot, but the bump was significantly smaller the next day and was fully gone within 5 days. In the past, I've used Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion, which I still like, but this PTR spot treatment was much more powerful. It is expensive for the amount of product, but worth a try for those bad breakouts.
