Rated 4.75 out of 5 stars
So, I have a friend that uses this stuff and recommended it. However, the price was a little high for me. I was in Ulta standing in front of the Peeling Gel Trying to decide if I wanted to spend my hard earned money on this and an employee walked by and took one look at me and said that it wasn't for me because I had oily/combo skin and that it was just the product that peeled up and that I wouldn't like it. It seemed to me that she was more knowledgable than I was and I didn't want to spend money on something that the employee said wouldn't work. But still I felt slightly upset that she had dismissed me so quickly and I had read many good reviews. Fast forward about three months, I realize that I have many points and they would cover the hefty price. A separate employee let me try it out in the store and I felt enough difference on my hand that I thought it was worth it to use my points. What was the harm? I got home and rubbed it on my face. I was a little sad at first I didn't really notice a difference I thought that it had no real change to my face and the original employee had been correct in her assessment. I put the stuff in my cabinet and didn't think about it for maybe a month. Then one day my face was DRY. I mean just peeling rough patches everywhere. So I pulled it out and rubbed it on my face. After I washed it off literally ALL of my extra dry skin was gone. My face had never been so smooth and soft in my life. I then applied makeup and it went on like a dream. It was the best makeup day I had had in ten years. The more I use the product the more I realize that it has to be used in a specific way to achieve optimum results. First wash and dry your face fully. I mean wash it twice with soap. It has to be clean. If there is any of your face's natural oils, it won't do anything but ball up the oil. Then make sure you leave it on for a few minutes before you wash it off. If your face is not as soft as a new born baby's butt do it again. This is the best!
This product is nothing more than cellulose which is wood fiber. Yes, you put it on and it "rolls off the dead skin". Soooo, if you do that to your skin a few more times, then your skin shouldn't have more dead skin to roll off right? Wrong. It's just a texture thing...it "rolls" cause it's just fibers and it has silicone to make your skin "feel'' smoother. It's a joke. Buy a real mask.

I Purchased this when it was 50% off. I would call this a product I could not live without now . it makes your skin feel so nice and it looks so refreshed and smooth after using the product. I use it weekly then put a hydration mask on. Great product worth the money.

My face has never been so smooth, like a baby! I can't believe how much dead skin comes off!!!! People RUN and grab this! You won't regret it!

I have combination skin. I have the biggest issue with flaky dead skin especially when applying makeup. I get very frustrated with this because it makes my skin look horrible. After using this product, I have zero dead skin lifting my makeup off!!! It smooths my face and my makeup applies amazing after using a deeply hydrating moisturizer and primer! Before purchasing this I would still have bad results with my makeup even with my moisturizer and primer. This is now my holy grail and use it before every makeup application. My makeup lasts almost all day and that has never happened before! Highly recommend if you have issues like I do!!! It is a bit pricey but I think it's worth it.

It's not magic...but it does help firm some. Be careful not to put too much on or you will have white residue on your skin.

The only PTR product I actually like. It does work. Skin looks smooth and refreshed after use. Says you can leave on a little longer for more results not sure if that really made a difference or not. I like the product and it does work.

This right here is by far the best exfoliant I have ever used. You get immediate results and it is super gentle. The way my skin glows after using it is superior. It is so cool to see your dead skin ball up. I thought it was the product balling up but it's not. You won't regret buying this.
Karrie from Michigan
I've tried PTR products in the past and loved everything. I'm 55 and did my 1st chemical peel I had reached peeling stage. I applied a small amount, And was amazed how much dead cells came off. No burning, just smooth skin. Having a facial night with my 4 girls this weekend. I would highly recommend this product to women/men who are looking for fantastic looking skin.

You can see the dead skin coming off your face and skin feels smooth afterwards.

I've been buying this product for years. I love how it leaves my face looking as if I just walked out of a spa after having a facial. It feels like you've gotten a microdermabrasion in your own home! I keep mine in the shower and use it every two weeks to maintain a dewy, fresh looking face. It's possible to use it weekly but I don't- only because I have a combination skin and would rather keep my face moisturized. But I love my results every time I use it. It never disappoints!
Darby from Plano,TX
One of your employees recommended this it is amazing exactly what I wanted to and more. Like hydrated after it exfoliate. No pain it's really like silk. Clean light smell. I love this Product worth every penny!
Amelia from Portland, OR USA
This is so easy to use, not harsh. Great on face, neck, and chest. Dead skin just rolls off.
Busy Mom from San Diego
Product sloughs off top layers of dead skin cells revealing noticeably softer skin. Great if use retinol products. Use several times week after showering between facials. Really helps daily moisturizers products do their job.
Mar G. from Illinois
I have very sensitive skin and can't say enough about this product. It exfoliates my skin immediately and leaves my face feeling & looking really refreshed—not dried out—and with less visible pores. It's also "fun" to exfoliate using this product, believe it or not. I will continue to love and use this product! It's fast, easy & really delivers!
Grandma from Missouri
I love this product! It is an amazing exfoliator. A small amount goes a long way. I use it on my face 2-3 times a week. My skin looks so bright and clear after use. I also started using it on my legs! It works as well on my legs as on my face!
Elea from Punta Gorda, FL

I've gone through 3+ of these bottles already and will continue to keep buying more. Gets rid of my dead skin so well. I've even used this on the bottom of my feet as well (not perfect but slowly smooths them out after multiple consistent uses). Not the cheapest but I like how well it works and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I try to use a sheet mask after using this and my skin drinks up the moisture.
Chea from New York
I am so mad at myself every time I try to find another exfoliation skincare product, I see other skincare exfoliating products being raved about and I can't help myself but want to try it! Well it never has worked out well for me, almost every skincare product I try, I ALWAYS break out. My skin gets super irritated, I get tiny bumps everywhere. I don't know what it is but this is the only thing my skin can tolerate, it truly makes my skin look amazing. Every time I go back to this I want to smack myself for wasting money on anything else! If your reading this review just know everyone's skin is truly different. There's no telling if your skin will agree with any type of skincare product. I definitely recommend getting the mini version and trying it! As someone with extremely sensitive/acne prone this is truly a miracle for me!

Very good exfoliating mask/gel. Tightens skin for firmer, smoother look.

I am white, late 30s, and live in the desert. Because I live in the dry desert my skin looks a lot more wrinkled, dry and aged as opposed to women who live in the mountains or ocean. My makeup application looks quite awful often due to dry skin so a skincare routine is of the utmost necessity. I still have not found a good moisturizer which means I am in need of an exfoliate for that crusty dry skin that always appears when foundation is applied. I have tried various exfoliates and what happens is that they make the skin more flaky but it just sits stuck to my face still in tact, looking worse. That includes scrubs, acids, masks, etc from DIY, drugstore to ULTA quality brands. I purchased a Thomas Roth trial kit with 5 products, and some were okay nor didn't work for me, but this exfoliate is my holy grail. I especially get flaky skin around my nostrils from having a runny nose from allergies, and I rub a dab of this around that area and the dead skin falls away so easily without disturbing any other areas of my face. This is definitely worth tracking down a sample size of to see if it works for you.
