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.
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 still breakout...

By OLIVIA

from Maryland

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

I use the whole PTR regimen. I'm not sure if it's helping. I still get cystic acne on my chin (hormonal) I use the sulfur spot treatment and it only helps minimally. I don't think I'd recommend.

I tried this product after Murad discontinued a similar product. Guess what. It works better than Murad. I get compliments on my skin all the time now.

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

I received this about 5 weeks ago and have used twice daily since. It cleared up an existing hormonal breakout and I didn't get another one this month. I've had to use an exfoliating cleanser bi weekly but my skin looks the best it has in years. I will never be without this product again.

    Holy Grail!!!

    By Janie

    from Oak Ridge, TN

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

    I have acne prone skin, and a couple months ago I had the worst cystic breakout of my life due to using a makeup that had oil in it. I had huge, painful cysts literally covering my lower chin and jawline. I tried so many products that would make little difference and I was starting to lose hope. I bought this in their acne starter kit, and figured it was worth a try. I wish I had found this sooner!!! It quickly cleared the remaining cysts I had and they have not been back! It is gentle enough to put over my whole face, and I have very sensitive skin. I love that it is fragrance free and oil free. When I start getting a cyst, this completely clears it in just a few days and it brings pimples to whiteheads quickly. It's even helping my red scarring. I still have some smaller breakouts, I think caused by my makeup, but this clears them quickly as well. And you only need a little bit, so it's a very affordable price for the size of the bottle. This is way more effective and gentle than the EpiDuo Forte I had been using! I'm so impressed with this product. I hope they never discontinue it!!

    I bought the cleanser and have been using it for only a few weeks and i can already tell a significant difference. It's definitely worth it.

      The only treatment that has helped my acne

      By Sassy4689

      from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

      Verified Buyer

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

      I bought this after seeing so many positive reviews. I have moderate cystic acne due to a medication that I have to take. On top of that, i have very very sensitive skin. I tried numerous other acne systems, treatments, and washes and they either didn't work or made my skin worse. After just three days of using this, I noticed a difference. And it doesn't seen to dry out my skin as much as the others that I've tried have. The only bothersome thing about this is the smell when you initially put it on your face. Thankfully, the smell dissipates. I would definitely buy this again and would recommend it to anyone with similar issues. Well worth the price.

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

        I use this product every morning & night after I wash my face. It is easy to use, light and dries so quick. It has evened out my skin tone and diminished acne scars. The bottle is huge so its a bit of an investment up front, but will last a long time! I am completely sold on it!

          I love this product! I've used this product in the past and forgot how much I loved it. My acne was bad so I thought I should buy it again. I've only been using it for 2 weeks my skin is starting to look much better. It really keeps my acne and blackheads away. I use it every morning and night.
