Did not work at all
Purchased

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.

Nothing special

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

Pretty happy with my purchase
Purchased

I was a little weary on whether to try it or not but decided to go ahead since my friends gave me great reviews on this brand. I'm glad I took the chance - it leaves my face feeling clean and fresh. I tend to have semi-oily skin so this wash leaves my skin feeling a bit too dry but not enough to the point where I wouldn't buy it again. I would recommend this wash to someone who is looking for an effective anti-age wash to add to their daily routine.

Tightens and Refreshes

This cleanser smells citrusy fresh and completely removes makeup, dirt, and oil. The salicylic acid in it leaves your face feeling refreshed and your pores tightened.

Doesn't work well for me

Since I was was a kid, I tend to get acne cysts on my face. For some reason, everytime I use this, I end up breaking out terribly with cysts around my nose and chin. I also find it drying. I've given up on it...

My tried and true cleanser for 2 years running.

I use this cleanser every night before bed - it suds up nicely, removes most all of my make up, and prevents outbreaks. I follow it up with the PTR Un-Wrinkle Pads to remove any excess make-up and further clean my pores. In the morning, I merely splash with warm, then cold water. I've been doing this for 2 years and it is the only regiment that has worked. I had been using an expensive Dermatologist prescribed regiment (it worked well, but dried up my skin and my bank account) and spent several months trying to find an OTC replacement. This is it!

Good smell, does the job
Purchased

This product has a mild but pleasant smell. It foams up quickly in the shower and does cleans the face well. I can't use it daily because it seems to leave my face a bit dry after but it's great after a hard workout or a day of outdoor shenanigans.

great product

Like other Peter Thomas Roth products, this stuff is really great! I did find that it is a little too harsh for me to use every day, but is super effective in keeping my skin clear! I alternate this with the cucumber detox face wash from PTR, and have had a lot of success in keeping my skin clear and bright!

Amazing cleanser
Purchased

I absolutely love this cleanser. I've been using it for a while and it is my definite go to. It not only makes your face feel super clean without drying it out, but it also has anti-aging properties.

Life changing.

Once in a while you come across a product that just knocks your socks off. This cleanser seriously is life changing. Got a sample bottle and once use in I was wowed. My skin is so smooth and soft. I have sensitive skin, don't let the ingredients scare you. My skin hasn't been so clear in a long time. (I use w/a clarisonic in the shower).
