Rated 5 out of 5 by mberk812 Best Facial Wash!
I have been using this product for at least a year now and it's amazing the way it's transformed my skinned. I would get your typical blemish, but my problem was whiteheads and blackheads. No matter what product I used, nothing would get rid of them. When I started using this product they went away and it also made the pores on my face much less visable. I get compliments on my skin all the time! I will never use any other facial wash but this. I just wish they made it in a super size because I tend to break out on my back a lot.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NC wash gal Newbie to PTR - excellent product
Here at the ripe old age of 55, I now have acne, and have spent a small fortune on products to clear my skin. Some worked a little, some not at all, and some just tried to burn my skin off. I was one step from going to the derm, when my primary physician recommended that I try this brand, accompanied by an antibiotic prescription. It has been 2 weeks, and I am nearing finishing the antibiotic and it has 'unjunked' a horrible cyst looking 'something' on my right cheek. It's still there, but when I squeeze it, nothing comes out now. # I know, I shouldn't squeeze, but it has been producing some pretty bad pus - as thick as lotion, yuck!!#. This pus was infectious, as if you mess with your face and the cyst leaks, it creates yet another small like cyst where the old pus has been. I started using PTR Acne Wash about 2 weeks ago, just once a day and along with the spot treatment, I'm clearing up. No burning, itching or redness and my skin is looking nice except for the still lurking cyst, which has nothing in it now, I scar pretty badly, so I'm thinking this is the beginning of a keloid - dang it. I just ordered the TSV, tried it last night and this morning, my skin was looking better - smaller pores. I will use the Acne Wash at night and the TSV during the day. I'm switching to PTR completely. Thanks for the help.
Rated 1 out of 5 by KizzyBear Nothing special at all
I hate to write a bad review for PTR products because I do LOVE the line and all his items I've tried; unfortunately, I noticed no apparent changes to my skin. I was hoping to help the slight flare up of acne and blackheads and while I used this consistently morning and night for several weeks, I saw NO changes. On a good note, nothing bad happened but it was just like using water really. No changes and definitely nothing in my skin took to this as far as assistance in acne clearing or less blemishes. No changes whatsoever. I wanted to love it but honestly, no changes. The one star only means for me, personally, nothing happened and to expensive to continue. It didn't damage or irritate my skin just might as well have been using basic drugstore soap. I do love most of his items though and want to try more.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lmarti12 Easy on sensitive skin, tough on hormonal acne!
I am so thankful that I tried this product! I had difficulty with my skin in my teenage years, particularly with deep cystic acne. My dermatologist threw the gamut of prescription-grade products on my skin. After trying a number of topical prescription solutions, I either had an allergic reaction to the harsh chemicals or saw no results. My doctor prescribed an oral medication that had extreme side-effects, but the cystic acne cleared.
Moving into my adult years, I was able to manage my skin by using Dove soap for sensitive skin. My skin stayed well-hydrated and clear until I became pregnant with my son. The breakouts worsened still after the post-childbirth hormonal shift. Initially, I thought my skin would balance out, but eventually I came to accept that these hormonal changes were here to stay. Amazingly, I now had a new type of acne to battle.
From my experiences as a teen, I knew that benzyl peroxide products would cause a severe reaction (and keep me from being able to go outside without slathering high SPF on my face...which irritates my skin even more), and I was skeptical to try salicylic acid products as none had worked in the past . After doing a lot of research and review checking, I hesitantly decided to give this a try.
I am so glad I did. Keeping my sensitivity in mind, I only use this wash once a day, and use my Dove at night. I also am using his AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel in the evening. I allow that to absorb completely and follow up with my First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. In addition to these, I have been using his Acne Sulfur mask all over once a week, and using it to spot treat periodically overnight. The purge was not pretty, but it is now clearing and my skin has returned to the skin I knew two years ago. The best part is that I have not experienced redness, irritation, or swelling! It is safe to say my sensitive skin has a crush on Peter Thomas Roth!

I have problem skin as an adult, which never troubled me as a youth. Over the years I have tried many different products and methods to get the acne under control, and most either dried up my skin or left it looking oily. This one does all that it claims, IT IS TERRIFIC for my skin and it leaves it so clean without being dried out,. My skin looks younger and clearer than it did when I was 30. I have used it for a couple of years quite happily and the effectiveness has not reduced at all. I am as impressed as I have been from the beginning. It is definitely worth a try to see if it suits you as well.
Rated 1 out of 5 by beagle55 Not for me
I love his products but this one is not for me. Too strong for my sensitive skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GoldenPenny SIMPLY EXCELLENT.
Bought this for my teenage son because none of the in store brands never made any difference. This helps keep the oil and shine under control for the entire school day.
I also bought the sulfuric masque to use 3x wkly.
Together these 2 products have quickly cleared his skin w/in about a wk & 1/2. The only thing is to use consistently.
I'm sure anyone w teen sons know that even though the products work, trying to get them to use the products is like talking to a wall. Bottom line is these products work when used consistently & worth the money.
