Temporarily tighten the appearance of your skin & rewind the clock - instantly!

FINALLY!!! A product that does EXACTLY as it says!

Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Instant FIRMx:

I have tried SO many products that claim they will temporarily diminish fine lines and wrinkles or reduce the bags under your eyes. SO SO SO many and I am beyond ecstatic after finally finding one product that does exactly what it promises to do!!!! I am in LOVE & wrinkle free.....temporarily at least!!!

You need patience and learn how to apply

Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Instant FIRMx:

It took me about 6 months to figure out how to best eliminate the white residue and it's been more than 3 years that I have been using this product daily. I apply it on my clean forehead and on the nose wrinkle, let it dry for a while and then just add a few drops of Argan Oil with my fingertips, it makes the white residue fade completely without any wiping or anything. This product is my holy grail. But of course, there are good, bad, and better days especially in winter when your skin tends to be flaky... Never had a more effective cream in my life, and I am a beauty editor!

    Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Instant FIRMx:

    I bought the travel size and just finished it this morning. You do feel a tightening after application like the description says, but there was not visible difference. After it dries, you have this white powdery, flakey residue that is a pain to remove. It doesn't just flake off. I felt like I was doing more damage to my skin as I was trying to rub it off. And then if you don't get it all off, it pills when you're putting your makeup. I got to where I was just using it to finish it off and I couldn't wait to be done with it. I'm glad I tried the smaller size first.

        Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Instant FIRMx:

        This product is amazing for my under eye circles and the "11" between the brows. Wish it lasted longer but after a long 10 hour day I should have to reapply I guess. It does leave a white residue but you get used to the product and eventually you get it right with little residue and makeup covers it. Honestly a good to item to look younger.. Thank you!

          Love this product. Lasts about a day. One week it was $38 and the next week $48. Quite a jump but I guess it is worth it.

              If you wipe away white left from product drying it removes it entirely

              It really works.....

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Instant FIRMx:

              I have been using this product for years and it is amazing how it firms the eye area. I have had compliments on my skin and I assure you it's because of this product. it takes a little practice and it's best used with a brush. I also use a blow-dryer on my face to speed up the drying. be patient with it it might not always work the first time but don't give up because it this is really a facelift in a tube.
