  • AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel (0.5 oz.)
  • Acne Spot & Area Treatment (0.25 oz.)
  • Max Complexion Correction Pads (20 ct.)
Acne Clearing Wash: Use a small amount, add water, work into a lather and massage into affected area making sure to avoid eye area. Rinse thoroughly.

Acne-Clear Invisible Dots: Before application, clean and dry affected area. Peel back an appropriately sized patch for the individual blemish. Gently press adhesive side over blemish, covering completely. Press edges to secure and contain affected area. Allow to remain in place throughout the day or night to permit healing. Do not apply makeup or any other topical product over the patch.

AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel: Active: Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two to three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If excessive dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. For external use only.

Acne Spot & Area Treatment: Clean the skin thoroughly before applying this product. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Max Complexion Correction Pads: Cleanse and rinse your face thoroughly before applying. Wipe affected area gently with pad, using light pressure. Do not scrub. Repeat with clean pad to remove remaining traces of oil, dead skin cells, pollutants and make-up residue. Because dryness can occur, apply once daily, increasing to two to three times daily as needed. If undue dryness or scaling occurs, use once daily or every other day or alternate with PTR Gentle Complexion Correction Pads.

Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne System:

This product is a god send. For the last 6 months I have avoided people at all costs because I was so embarrassed by my skin. Going to work was painful because I didn't want people to look at me. I bought this kit exactly 3 weeks ago and am extremely pleased. My skin before was so congested with clogged pores and small bumps everywhere. I would run my fingers over my face and want to cry. I have tried countless systems to no avail. I have tried 2 brands of birth control that are supposed to help with acne, but after 6 months neither of them worked. I don't think my acne is hormonal as the spots are small, there's just a lot of them. I was prescribed Retina, however I didn't want to try the product due to the horrid purging phase I read about. Now after using this system, I can finally say my skin is almost completely clear. After the first few days of use, I will say my face purged a lot. This was characterized by a bunch of tiny whiteheads in clusters. 3-4 would appear and then be gone in a few days, just to be followed by a few more. This lasted about 2 weeks. During this time, I did get a few inflammatory spots which I don't usually have, but they were gone in about 4 days. Nothing major compared to what I've seen other products cause. Up until a few days ago I was giving up hope. My skin was looking more or less the same. Then one morning I woke up and was blown away. My pores had shrunk, my bumps were almost completely gone, and my skin felt so soft. I never thought my skin could look like this. I use the face wash and correction pads every night, and the serum every morning. The spot treatment works wonders if you feel a pimple coming. I can't speak to the acne dots because I have had bad luck with other brands in the past so I was too scared to try them. I will be repurchasing every item in this kit in the full sized version once I run out. If you feel like it isn't working at first, just push through. If it happened for me it will definitely happen for you

        Meh for acne. Great for redness.

        Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne System:

        I've used everything for almost four weeks and...my acne hasn't gotten any better. But it also hasn't gotten worse. I really wanted this to work but it didn't. I have combination skin and though it didn't make the dry patches worse it didn't help with the oil. My skin breaks out 2-3 times a week and this really didn't really help. But what it did do was almost completely get rid of any redness I had on my face, which was pretty cool.(I think that was due to the Clearing Gel which I'll probably be getting more of)

              I have normal/combination skin and have bad breakout in my t-zone/ chin area regularly. I wanted this to work so bad, but the first application had my face stinging! The acne wash isn't bad but left a film on my skin, which I feel is bad for breakouts. Definitely returning!

              I purchased this at ulta I was between this kit and the one by physiology and I am so glad I went with this one! I've had very bad acne since the 8th grade and now I am 20 and I continue with this struggle. I LOVE THIS WHOLE KIT! I have never had a product work for my face as well as this one. Yes of course I still get break outs if I am on my period or something but for the most part my face is clear for the first time ever! I will be sticking with this from now on I'm done wasting hundreds of dollars on products that dont work!

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Acne System:

              I've struggled with acne since high school. I've been on birth control, two rounds of Accutane, and Spironolactone. Everything would work for a while, but my acne would ALWAYS come back. I was tired of the side effects of the medications and began trying every face wash, mask, and cream in stores. I was ready to give up and felt like my acne was something I'd just have to deal with the rest of my life. I WAS WRONG! I decided to try the Acne System after reading many reviews of various acne products and I'M SO GLAD I DID! This system has given me my confidence back! My skin is so smooth and I RARELY have to deal with a breakout. Thank you Peter Thomas Roth for helping me once again feel beautiful in my own skin without hiding behind a layer of make up. Now when people tell me my face looks radiant.... I secretly say to myself "I know" and believe it!
