I don’t love the gel, I think a lotion would work better for this product.

Harsh on my skin

This product and brand are not for me. It strips skin, making it feel weird.

HARSH!

Don’t be fooled by the pretty orange color, the lovely feel and the sweet smell of this cleansing gel - it is HARSH. I gave it three separate trials, and each time as soon as I dried my face, it was so taut, it felt like all moisture had been sucked out of it! (Is the tautness the “anti-aging” part? Like an L.A. immovable face lift?) The third day, it left some tiny burn marks on my skin. Tossed out the sample after that.

Made my skin soooo dry
Sampled

I started using this at the same time at a retinol serum, so when my skin started flaking off around my mouth and nose I figured that was the culprit, but it continued even after I cut back on the serum to once a week. No matter how well I rinsed or how much moisturizer I slathered on multiple times a day, my skin would always painfully crack around my nose and turn bright red around my mouth. Curiously, my cheeks and forehead loved this product and they tend to be dry as well. I like to keep a dewey look and they looked more matte, but overall felt fine. Use sparingly if you have sensitive/dry skin.

Not for Sensitive Skin

My skin broke out after using this product and burned for days. I pray this product doesn't get sent to me because I don't k ow what it is but I am allergic to some ingredient or ingredient mix in this formula.

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...

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.

Did not like this at all

I may be a big biased because I do prefer heavier,thick cleansers. This just slid right off my face & I don't feel like it really did anything for my skin. I was definitely disappointed.

Smells like Oranges

I received this sample in my free gift box. I was disapointed. It made my skin feel tight.Anti aging products are usually Dewey,. This product reminds me of any drugstore acne facial cleanser. Great if your in your 20s but for me a No.

It's okay
Sampled

I love other products by Peter Thomas Roth, but this face wash sadly didn't work for me. I have combination skin, heavier on the dry side due to where I live, and generally need a face wash that is gentle and nourishing. This face wash is not gentle---it dried me out, leaving my skin feeling too tight, rather than youthful. It smells great though!
