Honest reviews


Actually works

I started getting mild acne as an adult. Most things I’ve tried wouldn’t work or would dry out my face. I’ve been using this for about a month and I have nothing negative to say. It isn’t sticky, doesn’t have a horrible odor, goes on easy and hasn’t made my skin dry. I was complemented by several people (strangers & friends) how good my skin looks. When my friend told me this yesterday I looked in the mirror and said wow my skin does look good. All I really noticed was that acne had diminished but this combo of AHA/BHA has improved my overall complexion. AWESOME!

Good stuff!

I love PTR products. I use this as a preventative treatment along with the PTR Max complexion correction pads, switching between the two every other night. I love them both. Especially since this gel has lasted me over a year!

Peter Roth AHA/BHA acne clearing gel rocks!

The Peter Roth AHA/BHA acne clearing gel really works! This product will clear your skin without overdrying. The gel is non sticky and penetrates into the skin very well. It also helps to prevent age related wrinkles. I like this product. Oily skin can benefit from this product without break outs. I recommend this product to all Amazon’s customers. Great price and fast shipping!

love this! better than BHA only gels

I was previously using murad’s BHA exfoliating gel, but switched to this AHA/BHA exfoliating gel and it works better. BHA (aka salycylic acid) exfoliates the inside of your pores and AHA (aka gycolic acid) exfoliates the surface of your skin.I can definitely tell a difference by switching to a combination product because now the surface of my skin is being exfoliated in addition to the inside of my pores. My skin feels smoother and is clearer.I use this morning and night and also use vivant’s derm-a-gel (a retinoid) on top of it at night. For face wash I use glytone’s oily skin cleanser. I have moderate stubborn acne and this regime keeps me clear!

Didn’t agree with my skin.

I usually have great luck with PTR products and I have been using his scrubs and pads for years with no problems. I was looking for a treatment product that would keep my pores clearer and gave this a shot. Thought I’d found the holy grail for a couple of days and then my skin really started breaking out badly – something it hadn’t done in years. I guess I’m allergic to an ingredient in this stuff. I will say it’s a lovely, lightweight consistency and not sticky. So many products with AHA/BHA are like rubbing glue on your face and this one is not.
