Peter Thomas Roth Productsare well known for their quality and the Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid Moisturizer makes a great choice if you are looking for a moisturizer that really helps to improve your complexion.
It contains a time – release form of glycolic acid which has been patented by the manufacturers and it works to ‘turn back the clock’, helping your skin to look fresher and more youthful. For those suffering from blackheads and blemishes, it helps to reduce excessive oiliness, smoothing the surface texture of the skin making blackhead removal easier as well as refining and revitalizing.
For those whose skin is showing signs of aging in the form of fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin tone, this great moisturizer works to increase turnover of skin cells which helps to restore a more youthful appearance to the skin.
If you find exfoliating scrubs too abrasive, you may well find that this moisturizer from Peter Thomas Roth products is a good solution as this glycolic acid moisturizer provides an excellent answer to the problem of removing those dead surface skin cells that dull the complexion and block pores leading to blackheads and blemishes.
If you find that applying the product as directed causes your skin to feel a little sensitive, you can apply less product by simple moistening the face with a little water first so that you can still apply the product evenly over the whole face but it will slip on more easily and you can use less.
If your skin is prone to dryness, particularly in the winter months, you may find that you need to supplement the moisturizing action of this product with an additional, non-comedogenic moisturizer. Some reviewers have commented that during the winter time in particular, they only use this product where needed and use their normal moisturizer as a supplement.
You should also be aware that glycolic acid makes skin more sensitive to sunlight and you need to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun with a good sunscreen.
Some reviewers have also reported that whilst the product lasts a long time, a year after opening the bottle, the product does not work as well as it did and some have reported dryness and irritation. So store your product in a cool, dry, dark place, making sure to keep it tightly closed and if you notice this sort of deterioration, replace the bottle – it is great value anyway and a whole year out of a bottle can’t be bad!
Reviewers love this product and it seems to be popular with users of all ages and both sexes. There are many reports of big improvements in the appearance of the skin and in the firmness and tightness of the skin too. Some reviewers with more sensitive skin have reported that it does sting a little.
Other reviewers have reported success with this product in clearing minor scarring resulting from adult acne. These reviewers also reported that they noticed a big improvement very quickly.
Overall impression of Peter Thomas Roth Products Glycolic Acid Moisturizer
This is a great cream if you need an exfoliating product that is not abrasive and want to clear your skin of blackheads, blemishes and minor acne scarring in addition to getting more youthful looking skin and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Many customers say that they do not use the product every day, (perhaps only four times per week at night) as although Peter Thomas Roth Products say it can be used once or twice per day, these users still achieve great results.
