Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer Review

  1. 1. Review | Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% MoisturizerWhat is it:A skin-refining moisturizer with advanced, deeply renewing action. The added aloe vera and antioxidants nourish and protect the skin. right000What is it formulated to do: Advanced deep skin renewing action increases cell turnover to help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Reduces excess oiliness and helps clarify the skin and smooth out rough texture, leaving it refined and revitalized.Ingredients: Water, Glycolic Acid, Arginine, Whole Leaf Aloe Vera, Glyceryl Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Safflower Seed Oil, Emulsifying Wax, Dimethicone, Squalane, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Retinyl Palmitate (Micellized Vitamin A), Tocopheryl Acetate (Micellized Vitamin E), Oleth-2, Polysorbate 20, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Disodium Edta, Diazolidinyl UreaUsage: Skin should be clean and free of irritation. Apply a very thin layer to clean non-irritated skin every other night for two weeks. After two weeks, apply a very thin layer to clean skin every night. After one month of use, you may apply a very thin layer to clean, non-irritated skin for use during the day and night. Allow ten minutes for the product to absorb and follow, if needed, with prescribed moisturizer at night and prescribed sunscreen during the day.Review:AHA's are exfoliants as they remove the dead skin cells that collect on the surface of the skin, revealing the soft, smooth skin underneath. In addition to effectively exfoliating the skin, AHA's also stimulate skin repair, increase collagen production, improve elasticity, skin texture and skin tone, decrease enlarged pores and are also an effective acne treatment. So why is an exfoliant necessary? Skin naturally sheds billion of skin cells every day. When natural shedding slows, or stops, due to sun damage, dry skin, oily skin, or simple genetics, you're left with dull, dry, flaky skin, clogged pores, blemishes, white bumps and uneven skin tone. So, without question, everyone can benefit from daily use of a well formulate AHA, such as the Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer. Peter Thomas Roth's Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer ($40.90) is an ideal AHA moisturizer for sun damaged and dry skin, because the glycolic acid exfoliates the surface of the skin and has the added benefit of also improving moisture content in the skin. Oily and acne prone skin types will also benefit from using this product, particularly in the colder and drier winter months, when even the oiliest skin can experience surface dryness. Peter Thomas Roth's Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer also contains Vitamins A and E, which are great antioxidants that help to protect the skin from further damage. The added aloe vera can be credited for the soothing the skin, so even sensitive skin-types will benefit from using this product. left000Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer is packaged in an opaque tube, which will keep all the ingredients stable, and a pea-size amount is enough to moisturize the entire face. So a little product definitely goes a long way, and at $40.90 for 63g, this product is great value for money! To prevent irritation, start by using this moisturiser every few nights, so that your skin can build up tolerance to the 10% glycolic acid. You may experience some slight tingling after the first few applications, however, it subsides very quickly and is not uncomfortable in any way. Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer can be used twice a day, however, because AHA increases the skin's sensitivity to the sun, it is best to use this moisturiser at night. You will still experience amazing results by using this product only at night, however, ensure diligent application of sunscreen when using this product. Peter Thomas Roth's Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer has a very elegant formula, and its light and non-greasy formula is absorbed very quickly (refer to images below). For extremely dry skin, follow with a hydrating moisturiser, especially in the colder months. It can also be used in conjunction with a retinol product, which will aid in reversing sun damaged and ageing skin. For excellent results, pair with Peter Thomas Roth's Retinol Fusion PM, reviewed here.  Verdict:  Peter Thomas Roth's Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer provides freat results, and overnight! By the next morning, you will have a healthy glow and skin appears refreshed and brighter, is flake-free and it looks and feels smooth. I have used many AHA products but without good results. They are either too strong, which made my skin peel, or not strong enough. Peter Thomas Roth's Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer contains the perfect glycolic acid concentration, thus exfoliating without the irritation and peeling, which can take days to heal. With persistent nightly use you will definitely see a great improvement in your skin's condition. You will notice clarity, smoothness and a more even skin tone, as well as a reduction in the appearance of sun spots and large pores. Your skin will feel more hydrated and firm and this definitely shows. Overall, I am very impressed with this product, its simple ingredients list and elegant light and non-greasy formula. Peter Thomas Roth's Glycolic Acid 10& Moisturizer makes skin look refreshed, brighter and it gives a great healthy glow, and that's all before even applying any makeup!For great results try...Priori Advanced AHA Barrier Repair Complex 50ml/1.7oz  $53.90more details DDF Retinol Energizing Moisturizer 50ml/1.7oz  $80.40more details MD Formulation Continuous Renewal Serum 60ml/2oz  $48.80more details Skin Medica Retinol Complex 28.35g/1oz  $44.60more details Priori Advanced AHA Skin Renewal Cream 50ml/1.7oz  $53.90more details Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM 30ml/1oz  $61.80more details From The Beauty Club Beauty<br />
