I bought this for my husband. He has oily skin and tends to have break outs. The bottle says it is good for all skin types except sensitive. Every since my husband started using this product his break outs have gotten worse and they have been more infected.
We have used it for quite a while just to see if it would get better, and sadly it did not.
It's ok. Smells nice. But it always feels like I'm not getting it all rinsed off. I've tried rinsing with cold, warm, and hot water. Always still a residue left behind. No idea if it fights aging because I can't get past the feeling it leaves on my skin, to use it long enough
I should have read the label a bit better...
This cleansing gel is billed as "for all skin types except sensitive". Whoops! Sure enough, it gave me a rash within 12 hours of using. I wanted to love this face wash so badly since it smells so good and feels so nice going on, but unfortunately, it was too harsh for my skin. If you have any sensitivity to salicylic acid, this wash is not the one for you.
Most soaps don't work for me, but this does!
Most soap based face washes irritate my skin and make me dry and break out prone. This one doesn't. It is a good clean, but not quite squeaky clean. A little goes a long way! I am young, so I can't speak to its anti aging benefits, but it has helped to soften the overall texture of my skin, and gets my skin clean and ready to absorb a little organ oil before I head to bed (its a great night time cleanser)!
This cleansing gel lathers so nicely and washes off leaving no residue. I have acne prone skin and have had no problems with breakouts. Another problem I find with cleansers is that the dry my skin out, not the case with this one. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated.
I am so excited that Birchbox is carrying Peter Thomas Roth now!
