Product Review: Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle Peel Pads
I am not affiliated with Peter Thomas Roth, just a consumer of their products.
I have been exploring high-end skincare products for the last couple of years. The first high-end product I ever tried was from the brand Peter Thomas Roth. I had never heard of them before when I had received an eye cream of theirs that I fell in love with. It left me wanting to try more of their products. This particular product has a lot of positive reviews and seems to be a favorite among it's consumers. When I got my much anticipated 20% coupon from Ulta, I knew what I had to try next!
Before I start this review, I need to be honest. I have used about half of the container very haphazardly and it has not yielded the wonderful result that the reviews promised. So I will use the second half of the jar religiously and according to the directions and give a review of them that is accurate and fair for me.
I purchased this particular jar on Ulta.com but you can buy them anywhere Peter Thomas Roth products are sold. Some places include peterthomasroth.com and dermstore.com to name a couple of places. They cost about $45.00 for a 60 count container and I've only seen them available in that size.
They come in a sealed plastic container that contain 60 pre-moistened pads. They have a textured side and a smoother side.
Water/Aqua/Eau, Ethoxydiglycol, Glycolic Acid, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Sodium Lactate, Ppg-5-Ceteth-20, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Butylene Glycol, Arginine, Propylene Glycol, Salicylic Acid, Aminobutyric Acid, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Alanine, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Peel Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Borago Officinalis Seed Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Symphytum Officinale Root Extract, Peg-8 Dimethicone, Octyldodecanol, Ascorbic Acid, Silica, Sodium Propoxyhydroxypropyl Thiosulfate Silica, Benzoic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben.
They claim to exfoliate, nourish, refine pores, and clarify the skin all while proetcting it with moisture. They will also help diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation and provide skin with luminosity and prepped for other skincare treatments just as a professional peel would. You will be left with firm, smooth, soft and vibrant skin.
One pad is enough for one treatment. They can be used day or night and and you build up usage from a couple times as week to everyday according to your skin type. You can even use twice a day when skin is used to them. A slight tingling may occur. Apply to clean skin and can be used on face, neck, decollete, and tops of hands. Let dry for 1 to 3 minutes, then rinse of with water and pat dry. Follow with other products.
They have a textured side and a smoother side. They don't smell particularly strong, just a little medicinal, but that is to be expected with a retinol product like this. When you rinse the product off, the smell goes away.
I am starting out every other day as my skin is normal. I also prefer the day time versus the night for my application. I will increase to everyday as I feel I can in the next week or two. And my goal will be to get to twice a day to see the full benefits. I make sure to wear a moisturizer with SPF during the day.
I don't hate them but I don't love them. I don't like that I have to apply, wait, and then rinse. That is particularly difficult when I apply them to my decollete. Even though these are beloved by many, I don't feel they have done much to better my skin. I have had better luck with a retinol cream or serum in the past. I don't think I will repurchase these. But I wouldn't discourage others to try them because they do have such good reviews and they might help skin issues that you have if they are different from mine.
